    One thought on “Reign of Madness”

    1. This sequel to the fantastic Free the Darkness did not disappoint at all. It had all the same elements that made the first book such a fast paced and exciting read. These books are just super fun fantasy/adventure! The last book saw Rezkin adapt to the "Outworld" and meet a host of new people as he sought to learn his purpose in life. This second book had less of the hilarious misunderstanding that I loved in the first instalment but was every bit as good as we got more of Rezkin being Rezkin. W [...]

    2. SO this is really 2.5 stars in my book. Here is the rundown1. Basically Invincible Protagonist that can do anything2. all the other characters flip flop between disbelief and pandering to his awesomeness3. Meandering story line, that makes me think the author just wrote the book sans outline or with any plot goals. 4. Didnt hate it5. Will probably read the 3rd book when it comes out, to see how the plot resolves but I think I know how it will end.

    3. After reading the first book in a couple days and absolutely loving every word of it, I quickly grabbed this book and could not put it down, I plowed through the book in a day. The characters are so well done, I find myself rooting and for them, getting mad at them, and at one point Kai had me literally laughing out loud. I hope that part three is here soon I just don't know if I can wait long to see Rezkin, Frisha, Tam, Reaylin, Kai, Wesson, Jimson, and can't wait to see how a lot of the minor [...]

    4. I have read upwards of 2000 books in Sword & Sorcery (S&S) genre and I like to believe I have read them all (if you know what I am saying), from horrible ones to the great ones and then some in between. I have come to appreciate good writing like I appreciate roasted cashews and chilli chicken with my beer.I like to believe that I have come to recognise the "gems" of the genre like I have come to forgive the errors (grammar and spelling mistakes). Though I realise that it is subjective a [...]

    5. I couldn't help but grinning through the whole book, I was like,"Christmas has already happened, but I'm still getting awesome presents!" It was also quite humorous how I was thinking how I was going to write review about how great the book was, and I hadn't even read more than twenty pages.Anyhow, I would just like to say that it's a real great way to start a prologue in the way it was written. Starting a book with poetry might seem strange. Howbeit, it's really brilliant in that it reveals so [...]

    6. 3.5 stars for book 2 of the Kings Dark Tiding series. There were some incredibly cool parts to this book, but the awkward naivety of the hero, Rezkin, became tiresome. There was no respite in the whiny female characters either. Even the women who could easily be very strong and empowering women were reduced to catty adolescents who can't help but fall all over themselves at Rezkin. Also, how many times do we need to read about the way Rezkin "cocked his head?" Meh was a good story, but could do [...]

    7. "It's better than the first one""He isn't as overpowered in the sequel"Don't believe those lies. This sequel is far worse than the first book in the series. If you didn't enjoy the first one and are contemplating doing this book: Don't.I somewhat enjoyed some bits of the first one, such as the humour and over-the-top antics the protagonist got up to. This book, however, has none of that. The plot, world, characters and events are all absurdly stupid and frustrating. I don't even feel like wastin [...]

    8. Not really as good as the last one and not as funny. The main protagonist keeps adding to his entourage and they almost all have either special hidden powers and/or are among the most powerful within their class. (view spoiler)[And since the main character is the best at everything - and I do mean EVERYTHING - there really isn't any suspense. (hide spoiler)]The story and main plot progresses at a decent tempo and the author tries to include all the hangaround arcs in a fine way. I will probably [...]

    9. I would have given the Gary Stu goodness (which I don't often think of as a negative unless it's very poorly done), the action, and the court intrigue a 4 star. The story really is entertaining in the way that sword and sorcery stories are entertaining. But the obliviousness required in most of the characters to move the story forward has been excessive, and the fact that we don't get a strong woman, or even a woman who isn't too stupid to live, until 2/3 of the way through the second book and e [...]

    10. Awesome The way the author writes is just amazing. How he makes a situation and sets up his scenes doesn't make the reader cringe thinking the author pushes the bounds when writing mysterious parts. He writes in a way that leaves the reader wanting to know what comes next not how did this happen. Also most authors are terrible at writing necessary parts that exclude the action and bore the reader, but this author is able to roll right over these parts without losing momentum or interest.

    11. Loved this one even more than the first! Will talk about this more extensively in a wrap up some time soon. Characters grew, situations got more intense, things got even more fun, and I cannot wait to see what happens in the next one!

    12. Oh man, that sure ended with a bang.This book continues on with Rezkin and co's journey, specifically to the tournament in Skutton. I sure wasn't expecting the whole book to be pretty much the journey and to what happened in Skutton, and that tells me how detailed this series will be. The pages sure aren't lacking either. The author confirmed that it won't be a trilogy, so looking forward to this.Similar to the first book, I believe the 2nd book is also divided into two parts, the journey to Sku [...]

    13. Although I feel that this story as a whole has a hard time sticking to any particular plot goals, I really enjoyed this book. Our lead character is more familiarized with the "outworld", and we get to follow more characters that I disliked at first but grew to like as the story progressed. We are introduced to more of the world and get a bit more of the magic through the adventures of our main character and a couple of his traveling companions. Still not a huge fan of stories that have almost su [...]

    14. This is just too good. Kel Kade has managed to create a very cool kind of fantasy here, a kind of fantasy that is just as thematically-oriented as the Sword of Truth series but still possesses many of the elements of modern, swashbuckling fantasy. The story is somewhat typical, but it's set out in a very unusual way that makes it very hard to predict. The main character is almost perfect, but it's all balanced out by the numerous flaws in the other characters. There's a lot of character developm [...]

    15. In an effort to avoid spoilers, I will use no character names here. Almost all of my concerns from the first book were fixed in the second. We had more characters, and (gasp), they all had character arcs! Even the main character is starting to be likable, rather than just being the domineering god-like character. He is beginning to feel like a human (though I have my doubts).In my review of the previous book, I said that I had concerns about character arcs. Now I know that Kel Kade can write a s [...]

    16. My review of Book 1 here: /review/showOverall rating 3 stars (from 2.5 for the first one)The second book was an improvement over the first one and good enough to keep me engaged with the series. The story development was better than in the first book and the narrative was tighter. There were also more efforts visible on character development. The couple of things that remained unchanged were:- the protagonist is still pretty much a superhero and this greatly reduces the tension. However, it make [...]

    17. I was a little disappointed.The book was entertaining as the first was, but it felt short in a few parameters.1. It did not go as I hopped it will. The first was portraying Rezkin as a mysterious figure, that has something strange in his mind when he was infiltrating the gangs, and I hopped that he's not that good and noble as he seems to be, and maybe he'll turn to be a great "bastard", an anti-hero or something, but it seems that my hopped were in vain, and the path that the author took, is pr [...]

    18. I am in love with this series. It is a pleasure to read. The characters are well written and mostly enjoyable. The ones that aren't enjoyable are purposefully that way. My only complaint about these books is that they end so abruptly. This book had a much more satisfying ending than the first book, but it still feels like this was one humongous book that was forced to be chopped at certain points to create a series. I can't wait for the third book. Also a shout out to the audio version. Spectacu [...]

    19. AMAZINGThis is, by far, the most amazing book I have read! I have no complaints of the book, whatsoever, and encourage Kel Kade to finish his series!I have stayed up two nights in at row, absolutely captivated in this epic world that the author has made. I really enjoyed it, and hope I can read the third!

    20. Great classic fantasy storyI love a good story which is full of magic, battles, and romance. But what I love most is how the author is able to make you laugh out loud, feel anxiety for the characters and immerse you in the world they have created. I dreaded reading the last few pages knowing that book 3 has yet to be released. I anxiously await book 3 (and more).

    21. Okay, deep breath. Reign of Madness was a superb sequel to Free the Darkness and I’m still riding the emotional high off the ending, so this review might be a little more of a fan-fest than usual. Kel Kade’s storytelling ability has exceeded all of my expectations, which I must admit were not that high before beginning the series. I’m always skeptical when I see books with many positive reviews that haven’t been mentioned by fellow Fantasy lovers. I figure someone else has to have read i [...]

    22. Good God in heaven Frisha was an idiot She was very petty and jealous. She was also very spoiled and possessed every single trait that I hate in female characters. She had nothing to contribute to the dialogue other than a pout, a whine, or a envious retort. She was so weak. She did absolutely nothing for the story and is a poor female lead and romantic interest. Honestly, I was kind of hoping she would fall on a dagger and die. There would be so many times that the story would be going great an [...]

    23. This review and many others, both german and english, can also be found on my blog.Diese und viele weitere Rezensionen, auf deutsch und englisch, findet ihr auch auf meinem Blog.Ravenclaw ThreadsisterAfter I finished listening to Free the Darkness I immediately started on Reign of Madness and followed up with Legends of Ahn. As I read / listened to both of them so close after another I might have trouble separating them, so I’ll put a SPOILER WARNING right here, just to be safe.Let me just say [...]
