Synopsis

It is an Age of Legends.

Under the watchful eye of the Giants, the kingdoms of Men rose to power. Now, the Giant-King has slain the last of the Serpents and ushered in an era of untold peace and prosperity. Where a fire-blackened desert once stood, golden cities flourish in verdant fields.

It is an Age of Heroes.

But the realms of Man face a new threat-- an ancient sorcerer slaughters the rightful King of Yaskatha before the unbelieving eyes of his son, young Prince D'zan. With the Giant-King lost to a mysterious doom, it seems that no one has the power to stop the coming storm.

It is an Age of War.

The fugitive Prince seeks allies across the realms of Men and Giants to liberate his father's stolen kingdom. Six foreign Princes are tied to his fate. Only one thing is certain: War is coming.

SEVEN PRINCES.

Some will seek glory.

Some will seek vengeance.

All will be legends.

In his debut novel, Fultz attempts to marry the scope of doorstop fantasy with the lush language of Clark Ashton Smith, but he never quite achieves either.

City Book Review

So, for example, Michael Moorcock has mined Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert Howard to write highly entertaining novels based on the notion of an Eternal Champion, including those of a sword and sorcery nature where Elric proves slightly less effective than Conan with the sword.

It’s solidly written, but, in the end, commits the sin of being quite interchangeable with other Fantasy books out there.
