There’s a very special feeling you get when you read a particular kind of fantasy book. You know the one that takes all your beloved tropes and spins them on their heads? You’re transported to a whole other world that feels both different and the same. You know all the beats but they are coming at you in wonderfully new ways. It’s about as close to that “coming home” feeling as you can get. That’s exactly what I felt when I first read author Kel Kade’s Free the Darkness, book one of the King’s Dark Tidings series. And if you haven’t given the books a chance, I can’t recommend them enough. They are light and fun—and book 3 of the series, Legends of Ahn, just released earlier this month.
It is also with that feeling in mind that I have the pleasure to announce that Kel will be crafting a brand new series for Tor Books! With the fantastic ability to make use of your expectations, Kel is taking a turn at the epic quest fantasy, and I cannot wait to share it with everyone.
