We welcome fantasy author James A. West as a guest blogger on June 16, 2012. Mr. West is the author of The Heirs of the Fallen series.
Heroes are not born, they are forged in the fires of apocalypse...
In the heavens above, the three moons crash together, streaming fire and death in their wake; below, the seas rage as the roiling face of the world shatters. After Prince Varis Kilvar steals powers to transform himself into a god, chaos reigns from the king's city of Ammathor to the forbidding walls of the Black Keep. At his heels marches a demonic army torn from the very bowels of the Thousand Hells, and the risen God King uses terror to stake his claim over all lands.
Betrayed and bound to Varis by powers he does not understand, mercenary Kian Valara is forced to masquerade as the world's savior, while a beautiful Sister of Najihar prepares him for his last battle. Victory against a living god is far from certain, but vengeance? For Kian, when the battle rage falls upon his soul and the sword hilt is hot and alive against his palm, vengeance is never out of reach.
Chains that bind the soul are stronger than iron…
One step ahead of demonic slavemasters, Leitos flees across a sun-scorched realm littered with the relics of mankind’s destruction. No matter which way he turns, enemies stalk the shadows clad in fiendish flesh, or hunt in plain sight wearing the faces of men.
Thrust into a world his slave’s eyes have never seen, Leitos struggles to heed his dying grandfather’s command: “Run and hide. Find the Crown of the Setting Sun beyond the Mountains of Fire, and there seek out the Brothers of the Crimson Shield.” Such are the words of a madman … yet they are his only hope.
Mr. West will be blogging about life and his work especially his recently relased Crown of the Setting Sun. Both of these books sound awesome and I shall be adding them to my to read list.
