About the Author
Will Wight lives in Florida, among the citrus fruits and slithering sea creatures. He's the author of the Amazon best-selling Traveler’s Gate Trilogy, The Elder Empire (which cleverly offers twice the fun and twice the work), and his newest series of mythical martial arts magic: Cradle.
He graduated from the University of Central Florida in 2013, earning a Master’s of Fine Arts in Creative Writing and a flute of dragon’s bone. He is also, apparently, invisible to cameras.

In of Dawn and Darkness, Calder Marten is in the possession of the emperor's crown! And he's ready to step into the vacuum left in the wake of this great entity... But, the Guilds, aren't in agreement over this convenient solution... and the Consultant's Guild is absolutely opposed to it, believing no one person should have that much power, because "absolute power corrupts absolutely! So really, I shouldn't have been at all surprised that Will Wight would have to give the action a backseat while he built up all the Political machinations that were happening. Only then could he could push the pedal to the metal...
And WOW, he ended up with a fantastic book and a great story ARC!
I really haven't mentioned in any of my other reviews of the Elder God series, just how much I've enjoyed the magic system! In this series if, you imbue your intent on a inanimate object, it can be awakened ie: a weapon that will actually want to kill! A makers tools; a hammer for instance, might rebel if it thinks that hammering a nail into a door is dumb, even missing on purpose! LOL!
The few books I've run into previously with "aware objects" had been in Nina Kiriki Hoffman's, Matt Black books, and David Brin's, The Practice Effect... and I've got to say, I loved them too!
The narration by Travis Baldree is as always, simply great (He's a favorite of mine)! But now I can hardly wait to listen to Emily Woo Zeller (another favorite) narrate the 6th and final story of the two side-by-side trilogies, Shera's story! She's an assassin, and leader the Consultant's Guild!!!
Wow. What an incredible story. The wait was totally worth it. Elder Empire is my favorite series by Will Wight. I love how deeply the characters are developed. It’s not just a story, the back-story weaved throughout paints a much more vivid picture of the entire story. On to Of Killers and Kings!
Pro-tip: read each book from Calder’s perspective then read it from Shera’s.
I think i'm one of the few that really liked this series over the cradle series, so when the cradle took center stage for 8 books midway through this one...I was a bit confused. Why would you swap to a simpler, shorter series when you already had one? I can't remember exactly where but he did explain about the cradle series just being faster to crank out.
I really enjoyed the first 4 books of the series with even Shera(not my favorite) being more interesting in the 2nd book. This one just felt a bit too short and confused. Maybe it was every other chapter jumping to a different time frame, the lack of witty conversations or really any character improvement compared to the first 2. Calder just went a bit on the lame side in this book with a lot of attention payed to what his wardrobe would be lol.
I'd still recommend this series and it does end with an alright ending it just felt like it could use a bit more girth to flesh out the story. To me it just seemed like the books were wrapped up to finish them.
On the other hand the cradle series went from kinda an odd DBZ spinoff + pay to win mechanics...to being quite enjoyable and I'd def recommend that one as well.

Connection to the Cradle series is explicitly revealed in this book, Cradle fans should definitely read this series.
