Fall of the Western Kings (Tirumfall Trilogy #1)Fall of the Western Kings by J. Drew Brumbaugh
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was hooked from page one of this epic fantasy adventure featuring our hero, Gant. Gant is an apprentice blacksmith to his father living in a small village making swords for nobleman. As a commoner it is against the law for him to learn swordsmanship himself but he trains in secret. When Gant uses his sword to protect a friend he ends up hurting a nobleman and so is branded as an outlaw. Gant goes on the run along with his best friend Chamz and they embark on an adventurous and at times dangerous journey. Along the way they meet new friends who are not all human and together they have to vanquish the forces of darkness. This is a classic fantasy adventure and one I felt totally immersed in due to the authors wonderful world building. I loved the main character, Gant and by having best friend Chamz along for the journey he added some much needed humour to the storyline. Other characters that stood out and added to the story were Dalphnia and Pris, however all the characters were well defined. The authors detailed descriptions really made the story come alive and the plot was action packed and full of drama which had me gripped. I look forward to book two in J Drew Brumbaugh’s ‘The Tirumfall Trilogy’.
