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.

About James A. West

My name is James, and I live in a fantasy world. Okay, not really, but I write about them! It's Stephen King's fault. I read The Talisman when I was thirteen, and I've lived in my fantasy world ever since. As soon as I finished that book, I was hooked. I knew I was going to be a writer. Of course, someone forgot to inform life about my writing plans, so I've had several different jobs! I proudly served in the US Army, spent a year as a long-haul truck driver with my wife (who is also my high-school sweetheart), and even attended the University of Montana. While I was there I enrolled in a creative writing course, and I couldn't resist the call of writing any longer. Next thing I knew words started to flow and worlds were born. Now I live and write in Montana with my wife and my bodyguard, a Mini-Schnauzer named Jonesy. I also eat copious amounts of chips and salsa :) Life is good!
