Publisher's Summary

Fate of the Fallen is the start of a brand-new adventure from New York Times best-selling author Kel Kade.

Not all stories have happy endings.

Everyone loves Mathias. Naturally, when he discovers it’s his destiny to save the world, he dives in headfirst, pulling his best friend, Aaslo, along for the ride.

However, saving the world isn’t as easy, or exciting, as it sounds in the stories. The going gets rough, and folks start to believe their best chance for survival is to surrender to the forces of evil, which isn’t how the prophecy goes. At all. As the list of allies grows thin and the friends find themselves staring death in the face, they must decide how to become the heroes they were destined to be or, failing that, how to survive.

Bought this story by mistake thinking it was a continuation of Dark Tidings. Pleasant new series by Kel Kade.

Ah-Maze-Ing

It was pleasantly full of unexpected twists and new magics. Full of adventure, wisdom, chaos, and sanity!

The ending is superb

I really enjoy the different spin on the narrative coming from the Kings Dark Tidings. There were definitely some slow spots in the book but I have thoroughly enjoyed the gods toying with the story line as well as the mystery of Mathias.

She has done it again 🤩🤩😍😍😍😍😍😍😛😜😜

Kel Kade is amazing, the narrator is amazing.

In my opinion, this book was everything. She brought this amazing and wonderful book to life. It was new and unexpected and the heroes are unbelievable in the best ways.

This book was an experience that we needed, it transcendent the mind into this realm of the unexpected.

Shout out to the narrator, he brought this to an even greater level, even though many of the female voice were the exact same, which can't be helped

Creative and unpredictable

The world building in this story was fantastic and original even down to everyone's unique names. I really enjoyed all of the twists and turns of the story, I had no idea what would happen next. Something interesting was always happening and none of the chapters dragged on. I only wish it was longer! This author is fantastic and I greatly look forward to the next book to see whats going to happen! Kel Kade knows how to make a fantastic main character. Just like he did in The Kings Dark Tidings series

great story, cant wait for the next

the only confusing bit to me was how he couldn't figure out how to whisper when talking to himself. I mean u think he'd figure it out after the first couple people caught him. other than that, the narrator was awesome as always, and the story is intriguing. I hope the author goes back to Kings Dark Tidings before continuing this series but I wouldn't be mad either way lol

They did it again 😊

Kel's clever story is again put forth by Nick in a way that catches your mind and too soon is finished, waiting for more.

Worth a listen

I have listened to the authors other series, Kong’s dark tidings, which I enjoyed a lot. This story is unrelated but has similar writing style. Nick Podehl crushes the performance as always. The story is good all though I felt that it was left a bit unfinished even for the first book of a series. Kind of ends abruptly as a major revelation is revealed. Has that weird, smart humor from KDT that I enjoyed. Still I wish that the author would have finished the KDT series first before starting another....

Just ok. Gets a little weird at the end.

This book has a great concept but near the end the author seems to just add more and more oddities. They are things they seem as though if they were introduced a little earlier would be more character developing and less “oh now you can do this ...” too quickly a couple of the characters change from their initial personalities taking away from what initially made them interesting.

A bit odd but interesting enough

Big fan of Kel Kade and Nick Podehl, grabbed this as soon as it came out. The plot is odd and you spend almost all of the book having No Clue where the story is going, which can be off-putting.

The characters and their interactions are cute and funny, which carries most of the book. Throughout the story there are scenes that jump to other perspectives that feel rather boring or unnecessary, but they're not terribly long.

Overall rather enjoyed the book, even if the ending felt abrupt.

I love this book.

It's an amazing new addition to the library of an amazing author. The characters are great and none of them come off as trite or annoying. I'm particularly impressed with how good the Reaylin 2.0 (Tessa) character turned out to be. It is clear that the tale the author is spinning for us is a work of passion, and the ending leaves me only wanting more.

Takes awhile to become interesting.

Hmm where do I start. This book crawls out of the gates of adventure. The main character, once made clear who that is, does not get the proper explanation of why he matters in the story. Because of this, I often found myself lost as to the purpose of his journey if everyone keeps says that all hope is lost. To me it felt like the author could have placed an element of “I have a secret trick up my sleeve” in someone’s hands. Anyone’s hands. I guess I just don’t get it. Even the prophets and the God’s say you’re doomed?

Nick is great as always but I feel the story really lacked something to look forward to. When it did finally become interesting, it was as if the author realized “ok this is rather bland... let’s spice it up”. Then things got weird. I mean seriously? Half monster half magic user?

Disappointed

I'm a fan of the Kings Dark TIdings series. They're not perfect but i've enjoyed the series and plan to continue it. This book; however, was a huge disappointment. I'm super confused at the high ratings. This book took off like a shot. No build up, no character development, no world building. Best friends, savior of the world, lopped off head becomes a talking jester, gods of fertility???? This book appears to have been thrown together as quickly as possible to take advantage of the success with kings dark tidings. It was 12 hrs and may have been a good book if it were 25 hrs. we'll never know.
