Publisher's Summary

The mysterious, indomitable warrior? Ruthless criminal overlord? The Riel'gesh - mythical demigod? Dedicated friend and protector?
Equipped with skills far beyond those of the outworlders, Rezkin has been suddenly thrust into a foreign world. The young warrior clings to his only known purpose as he continues his search for any information about his identity and the reason for his existence.
While the hardened warrior scorns both dueling and tournaments, he believes some of the answers he seeks may be found at the King's Tournament, the greatest dueling championship in all of the kingdoms. As he searches for the elusive Striker Farson, who may be the only person alive who holds the clues, the young warrior and his friends embark on a journey fraught with danger, mystery, and intrigue.
Amid fears of the kingdom's economic collapse, rumors of an eminent military draft, and the machinations of a mad, tyrannical king, a new revelation threatens to upend all the warrior's plans.

Oh, very WELL DONE!

If you could sum up Reign of Madness in three words, what would they be?

Only need two: VERY SATISFIED

Who was your favorite character and why?

I stated in my review of the first book in this series that the main was my favorite because the other characters didn't have much to them. I am very happy to see that the author has had his cast of character grow! I thoroughly enjoyed the maturing of these characters, all of them.

What does Nick Podehl bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narration of this book was done very professionally. Nick Podehl brings much to this medium. Each medium has its pluses and minuses and I don't like to say one is better than another.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yup and did! I don't regret that in the slightest.

Any additional comments?

It is painful to leave the immersion of this story and I will be checking a lot for the next in the series! BRAVA Kel Kade! Keep going!

Must read for epic fantasy fans

With a healthy mix of character development, amazing battles, humor, and some mystery, it is definitely a must read. While it is a little "i know what will happen next," it still draws you into the story. I liken it to the Kingkiller Chronicles, but with less mystery and cliffhangers, and, so far vs the KKC, more battles and a faster paced story.

While I do prefer the mysteries of KKC, Kings Dark Tidings is more than worth a read. (plus, books are actually released so you don't have to wait SIX PLUS YEARS between installments... I'm not bitter.)

As always, Nick Podehl is a five star narrator, and his voicing of characters makes the story that much more interesting.

Magnificatly awesome

I've never commented before on a book, but this one capture my imagination and conjured up such great images in my mind I had to leave something behind.
I listen via audible books, the narration was perfect, the characters in the books were well form and link together perfectly. I just didn't wanna stop listen.
At points of the book I had shiver of excitement. I will now read the books aswel, can't wait for book 3 and hope there will be more after that.

One of the greats.

This book and the previous one are in my top 10. The story starts slowly and keeps building to a brilliant ending that left me begging for more. I cannot wait for the next instalment. The characters and story are extremely well written and Nick Podehl is a master reader, each character is recognizable throughout and he reads with such passion, I enjoyed his performance thoroughly.
This book is one I am glad to have chosen and the author should be proud, five stars from me!
