Summary

Warring kingdoms. Ancient blades. Dragonriders and godlings. A growing evil that threatens to destroy the world. Don’t miss the highly anticipated follow-up series to the number one Amazon best-selling saga, The Fatemarked Epic.

Infused with magic, shadows and starlight, the powerful godblades were believed to be lost nearly half a millennia ago, when the Godswar ended. Now, however, one has been found by the unlikeliest of wielders: Sampson Gaard, a blind but ambitious prince with something to prove.

The only question is whether he controls the blade or the blade him. With an insidious evil lurking in the shadows, the answer may very well determine the fate of all Kingfall.

The Kingfall Histories takes place on a different continent in the same world as The Fatemarked Epic. Fans of The Fatemarked Epic, The Stormlight Archives and Legends of the First Empire will fall in love with the world of Kingfall.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Far more enjoyable than Fatemarked

The first book in the fatemarked epic was so incredibly dire and constantly depressing that I gave up on the series before I even finished book 1.

Kingfall starts off incredibly depressing, as in just so,so goddamn dire it's an absolute pain to listen to, however there is a sun in the horizon and the book does pick up and get better rather fast. That's a massive step up from Fatemarked, which basically didn't pick itself up until the very end, but didn't do enough for me to want to actually listen to book 2.

Characters are well written and believable. I like vast majority of them and sympathize with the rest so basically nothing less than what I'd expect from David Estes as a writer.

This book is so good that it makes me want to give Fatemarked epic another chance,

So exciting.

Lots of different stories to tie in so you have to pay attention. It is well worth it. Lots of little aha moments as a piece of the story has a key detail added or we get to see what past events motivate a character. Looking forward to the next in the series which is already downloaded and ready to play.

Amazing read

I've been longing to get to read this book, and let me tell you, it was well worth the wait, and I was not disappointed. Vivid descriptions, well-rounded characters, excellent worldbuilding, and a gripping plot, all merge together to make this an amazing read. The story captured me from the first words, and only the essential nature of real life commitments, and the need to sleep, prevented me from devouring it from start to finish, otherwise it wouldn't have taken me nearly so long to finish reading. Now I'm eagerly anticipating the second book in the series, and strongly considering ensuring I clear my calender for a couple of days after its release so I can binge read it in the way I would have liked to do with this one. If you love a good fantasy story - especially one filled with magic, demons, and dragons - you need to read this book. And if you get the audio version, I can assure you the narrator does a fantastic job.

Not bad

As many listeners/readers remarked, the start is very good, excellent. Later on, the story kinda drags on, but until then I was hooked and I am not sorry. Near the end, it takes the pace again and here I am, listening to the sequel. There are some errors in the characters and their stories, but not enough to stop me from going through all books.
