Fate of the Fallen is the start of a brand new adventure from New York Times bestselling 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 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.

Kade (the King's Dark Tidings series) gleefully defies expectations in the disarmingly amusing, if somewhat meandering, first novel in the Shroud of Prophecy series. Growing up in the tiny village of Goldenwood, the charming and clever Mathias and his best friend, Aaslo, an introverted forester, have become brothers in all but blood. When a high sorceress reveals that Mathias is the chosen one, fated to save the world from darkness, Aaslo agrees to serve as Mathias's sidekick, until a surprise attack leaves Aaslo alone. Aaslo must learn to be a hero himself, making allies with men and gods alike in order to fulfil Mathias's destiny. Kade's arch humor, clever trope subversion, and skillfully drawn characters keep the story moving along, even if the plot tends to wander aimlessly. Despite the uneven pacing, Kade's exciting disregard for convention makes for a world where everything is possible and no one is safe. This is a series to watch.
