Suggested Reading

Readers often ask me for reading suggestions or about books that are like KDT, so I have put together a list of books you might enjoy. The list is far from complete, but I could probably go on for days. For most of these, I’ve fallen behind in the series and haven’t read all the books. I’ve been busy. 😃

    Thank goodness for this post! I just finished book 3 and was wondering what to read next…
    One book I would add to the list is “Dawn of Wonder” by Jonathan Renshaw. But I also should caution you, it is only book 1, and it has been a long time since it came out, but I desperately hope the next book will be published…eventually…

    I also personally recommend The Night Angel trilogy by Brent Weeks. Its a very good series, just sad that there was only three of them. Should help fill up your time before KDT 4. On my 7th read of the first three KDT. Unfortunately for me, most of the series I am reading, like KDT, are working on the next book.

    Ilana C. Myer has begun an intriguing bard’s tale with “Last Song before Night” and the soon to be released “Fire Dance”. Lovers of music, magic and court intrigue will be entranced by this story.
