Upcoming: DESTINY OF THE DEAD by Kel Kade (Tor Books)

KadeK-SoP2-DestinyOfTheDeadUSIn March 2022, Tor Books are due to publish Destiny of the Dead: the second novel in Kel Kade‘s Shroud of Prophecy series, and the sequel to the well-received Fate of the Fallen. I’ve fallen terribly behind on some of my reading, but Kade’s previous novel is rapidly ascending my TBR mountain, and I hope to get it read before the release of the sequel. Here’s the synopsis:

No more heroes.

The wealthy and powerful. The kings and queens. They all abandoned the world to fate when the chosen one died. All except a small group of broken people. Through dogged determination and maybe a bit of stupid bravery, Aaslo and his friends fought on. They continued the fight even when far greater heroes had given up.

Now, Aaslo must turn the tides. In a world swifly falling to chaos, Aaslo is determined to win this war… at any cost. He’s made a deal with the fickle fae, setting him and his friends on a collision course with the gods themselves.

Destiny of the Dead is due to be published by Tor Books in North America and in the UK, on March 22nd, 2022.

Upcoming: FATE OF THE FALLEN by Kel Kade (Tor Books)

KadeK-1-FateOfTheFallenUSKel Kade‘s upcoming Fate of the Fallen is one of the many upcoming Tor Books releases that are on my Most Anticipated list. The novel has been generating some enthusiastic buzz already, even though it’s not due to be published until November. The first in the Shroud of Prophecy series, here’s the synopsis:

Not all stories have happy endings.

Everyone loves Mathias. Naturally, when he discovers it’s his destiny to save the world, he dives in head first, 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.

Kel Kade’s Fate of the Fallen is due to be published by Tor Books in North America (it’ll be available in the UK, too).
