Revealing Fate of the Fallen, a New Fantasy From Author Kel Kade

You know how this goes: in the face of insurmountable odds and grave, world-ending evil, the chosen one will rise up and save the world. Standard Hero’s Journey stuff, really. But what if that wasn’t how it went?

Naturally, nobody is surprised when it’s revealed that Mathias is prophesied to be the one who’ll save the world. And when he rides off with his grumpy, slightly unstable best friend Aaslo in tow, no one has any reason to suspect their journey will end in anything but Mathias’s stunning success.
