I'm so excited! Walden is one of my absolute favorite authors. There is not one book of hers that I have not read.
Withered is phenomenal and bridges the King series to the soon to be released Monsters series. Get ready for answers and surprises. Some revelations will be bitter sweet and will also have you hooked like a fish for what's to come. Exciting things are coming and you will not want to miss them. Buy the book and get a sneak peak for what the future holds!

Novelette connecting the “Kings’ series and the ‘Lost Angels’ series with the new upcoming ‘Monsters’ series. Since I wasn’t intending to read the ‘Lost Angel’s series (nor the ‘Big Bad Wolf’ series) I’m not sure how/if I’m going to continue. That’s why I’m reading this novella to see how my interest goes.

It starts immediately after the final war the Kings and their Queens fought in the book ‘The Time King’. You don’t “have to” read that series to understand and enjoy this but it would be recomm

This read requires some brain cells: Do not read at night or when you are tired. It's really a great novella bridging her series; I just found a few too many loose ends and it could have used a little more transition in spots. Felt too surreal some times and my poor, tired brain struggled to keep up. But I love it enough to buy book 1 of new series (Monsters) and will troop forward hoping to fill in the blanks. Editing, writing and overall apples to apples? This is a B+/A-. Premise for the new s ...more

Withered Transports You To The Next World

When last we left our Kings and Queens - Time had crashed 2 worlds together - and dimensions now changed. This thinning of the “veil” also allows ancient evils to cross over. Heather uses this quick teaser to prepare us for her next series “Monsters”. And I’m delighted there still be dragons! And our Kings and Queens. Thank you HKW for this delightful bite. First in the new series drops on the author’s favorite holiday - Halloween. As she knows I don’t li

Some kinda wonderful !

Perfect bridge from the Kings to the Monsters, and a great introduction to the first book in the Monsters series. Looks like this series will have elements of The Big Bad Wolf, The Kings and The Lost Angels. Great reads, all of them! I highly recommend the books by Heather Killough-Walden, a quiet corner with a comfy chair, a cup of tea and any kind of sweet that take your fancy. Enjoy! 👍💖📖📚☕🍩

I started reading Withered and was immediately surprised at how much the world has changed since the events of The Time King. For example, Mimi is an adult!? What? When did that happen?
If you are a fan of HKW's books, then you are going to love Withered. It only hints at things to come, but is bringing with it familiar characters from other series, while introducing new ones. This new world has a lot in store for everyone involved and I cannot wait to see what happens next.

OMG!!! If you wasn't on edge waiting for the 1st books of new series you will be now!

If you've never read a HKW book now's the time to get started! She has woven a world of pure on edge of your seat series. Now's the time to catch up before the new series starts in Oct! So grab your fav blanket and cozy up for one hellava ride!!!
Ps. Start with the Big Bad Wolf series. Then the Kings. Angels was first but I did it in this order and loved it more this way.

Don't leave me hanging...

That makes me nuts! Good world building & lead in to the 'Monsters' series. A ton of new characters to take in in such a short read. Not real clear on them. Maybe that's the point.
