    The adventure begins here…


    Heroes are not born, they are forged in the fires of apocalypse...

    Mercenary Kian Valara wants nothing more than to retire from a life of blood and butchery. But when an arrogant princeling offers him enough gold to buy a throne, Kian straps on his sword for one last mission. And besides, what could be easier than guarding a prince who wants to sow his royal seed in every backwater fortress and village throughout the realm?

    Turns out, dying would’ve been easier.

    Kian discovers too late that the prince’s ambition has shattered the foundations of the world, and that he intends to remake all Creation.

    As the moons collide and the skies burn, Kian and his devastated company of warriors hound the demented prince across a nightmare realm. At every turn, Kian must fight for his life against demons escaped from the underworld, and those who they have transformed into blood-hungry terrors.

    Along the way, Kian meets a powerful and beautiful woman who prepares him for a battle he has small hope of winning. To triumph, Kian must summon all his skill and courage, he must sacrifice more than he ever imagined he could, and he must embrace the dark secret that binds him to the power-mad prince.

    Only one thing is certain: if Kian fails, the world of men will burn in the fires of apocalypse, and the God King will rule unchallenged and unpunished.

    Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

    James A. West is the bestselling author of the epic fantasy series Heirs of the Fallen, and the heroic fantasy series Songs of the Scorpion. Between gritty quests, he recently decided to dip a toe into the primordial sludge from whence he sprang, and penned the dystopian thriller, Beasts of the Field. James is a native of the Pacific Northwest, but life is a road of many turns. He served in the US Army, spent a year as a long-haul truck driver with his wife (who also happens to be his high-school sweetheart), and attended the University of Montana. He lives in Montana with his wife. His bodyguard, a Mini-Schnauzer named Jonesy, is always near to hand. James has been known to work for chips and salsa. While James spends most of his time navigating alternative realities, he periodically comes up for air at: jamesawest.blogspot.com

    3.0 von 5 Sternen Good Plot and Characters 4. November 2012
    Von shadow31071 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    The age old fight between good and evil is the premise of this book and it is well done for the most part with a good plot and interesting characters on both sides of the battle. The writing is extremely descriptive sometimes to the detriment of the story. There are places in the novel that the descriptive commentary takes up numerous pages and ends up bogging the story line down which is where I ran into problems with the book, the author needs to reach a middle ground with scene description and keeping the story line moving at a pace that will hold a readers interest. Overall though I would say the book is well worth the read if you enjoy fantasy and I plan on reading the next book to this series.

    4.0 von 5 Sternen Epic Fantasy for the Win 23. Februar 2012
    Von Jericho Barrons - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    The First Line: "With a crackle of thunder, a nacreous veil flashed into existence over the large granite basin, casting the chamber in a cold dead light. Prince Varis Kilvar stifled a fearful shout as the rumbling peal faded, replaced by demonic howls that burst through the luminous shroud and soared into the murky heights of the ancient temple's domed ceiling."

    The Story: This is a classic fantasy novel, in the fact that it's plot is simply amazing! Like any fantasy author, West created a vivid yet real world of his own where a prince and a mercenary fight for control over their ruined world. Traveling throughout the world, they fight head on and take on all evil as one tries to ruin the world, while the other attempts to save it. I love love loved the plot! The storyline drew me in and I was engulfed by the awesome words of this novel. I loved the entire idea of this novel and how the gods fit in as well. I can't wait to see more from James A. West

    The Characters: The characters in this novel were easy to relate to. Varis, the evil prince, gains the powers of a god and begins raising an army to take over the world. I hated him for the entire book, and why shouldn't I when all he did was try to destroy Kian, my favorite person ever.

    Ellonlef was a charismatic heroine. She stood strong even when Kian wasn't and I'm so happy that they had a bit of love interest going on. (I wont say if they end up getting together or not) Kian and Ellonlef were my favorite characters in the book. Both were born warriors who faced everything and never wavered. I also loved Kian's two companions, Hazad and Azuri. Bickering like brothers throughout the novel, they bring laughter and light to these dark times. All in all the characters were great, and they kept the book going.

    The Cover: I like the cover for The God King but I feel like West could have gotten better. But I suppose that this one fits the novel pretty well also!

    Would I Recommend? I would recommend this book to anyone who has read The Name of the Wind, The Sword of Truth series, or the Game of Thrones series. The entire time I read this book, it made me want to read a bunch of other epic fantasy books! It's that good.

    3.0 von 5 Sternen [...] 22. März 2012
    Von Dreamer2229 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    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.

    Review
    I really like the premise of this book. I love the idea of a person being able to transform themselves into a god and the two sides being drawn in this battle. The book is well written with beautiful language. For example, early in the book this description is given: "now its pitted surface was covered in vines, creepers, and witchmoss. Dampness and invading roots had crumbled its stones, giving it the look of an ancient, slumbering beast stricken with leprosy." I also found my favorite new curse, "You son of a poxy whore!" I love the rich language and descriptive passages.

    I really wanted to love this book for all the above reasons; however I had a hard time getting interested in the story as it dragged initially. At one point I was so bored I wasn't sure I wanted to continue reading. Despite loving words and enjoying the unique descriptions, I just wanted something to happen. I would have even been okay with killing people off to get the story moving. Finally after about half of the book, the story picked up.

    The last half of the book was much more active and held my attention. It was not engrossing like many books I have read, and my son stopped reading after the first two chapters. I would have called this a boy's book except for the fact that my son didn't enjoy it and he loves fantasy literature.

    I would be interested to read something else by James West to see if it was just this story that I had a hard time connecting with, or if it is his style of writing. I do think this story fits a nitch audience, it just wasn't my nitch.

    Overall I would give the book 3 of 5 clouds due to the rich language and the promising second half.

    4.0 von 5 Sternen A Villain's Tale 12. August 2012
    Von Gary Miller - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    From the first chapter the villain of this piece get's almost as much ink as the hero does, and the book is much the better for it! His quest for power and his descent into madness and godhood is chilling and all too believable for comfort. If this book were from the Lord of the Rings series, it would be about Sauron's rise to power as he overcame the opposition around him. I won't spoil whether the hero of this book succeeds in preventing the rise of this would be "God King" but the author does a wonderful job of conveying the horror and wonder of a world crashing and burning under the weight of one man's avarice for power.

    The hero is likeable and well written, with some great supporting cast in the form of a love interest and some long time friends, but this book is definitely the villain's tale! Well worth the price of admission.

    Disclosure - I received a free review copy of this book.

    3.0 von 5 Sternen B-Movie-esque Fantasy Novel 3. Dezember 2013
    Von Johnathan W. Hill - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    I had a hard time reading this novel. The descriptions were lengthier than was needed and even came off heavy handed a couple of times.

    The writing style reminded me a bit of a student who is told 'said' has been used too many times, so he goes back and changes 'said' into every synonym for the word he can find.

    Another caveat, that kept me from becoming totally immersed, was the amount of grammatical errors. Many times, an entire word would be left out of the sentence and passages could become murky and confusing.

    The story line was interesting enough, as were some of the characters.

    I'd consider this to be a "B-Movie" fantasy. All the predictable elements are there, plus some low budget effects, but the entire affair still comes out entertaining, despite it's flaws.

    I picked it up for free I believe, and if I didn't it was only .99 so not too much of a loss, but if I was going to have to pay $11 like the paperback wants, then I would be more upset. It's worth a dollar or two of entertainment, but not much more than that.
