Wow! Fall of the Western Kings (The Tirumfall Trilogy Book 1) by J Drew Brumbaugh, was non-stop action. From the first chapter to the last the battle scenes are excellent. This is a wonderful world with wonderful characters, and they are many. Our hero Gant begins a journey that he is unaware of his part in it. Not only is Gant an intriguing character but everyone he meets along this epic journey is just as detailed and interesting as he is. I guess we can find ourselves and our present world in every story we read, and I certainly saw enough of our present world in this story. My favorite line in the whole book…. “Too often he’d seen friends turn on one another over matters of honor. What honor came from killing friends?” Something to think about.

This is my first book by this author and i enjoyed it. I thought it was well written and easy flowing and held my interest from page one. It was full of action and adventure and the main characters were likeable! Grant was the lead. He gets labeled an outlaw beacause he learns how to use a sword. Now he has a whole heap of things in store for him and he has to learn how to navigate through a life completely different than he is use to. He was a good main character and i liked reading his story alot! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good adventure and I am looking forward to reading more by this author in the future!
Happy Reading!

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’.

The Fall of the Western Kings (Tirumfall Trilogy #1) by J Drew Brumbaugh

This was a fantastic first read by the author. I can’t wait for the next book in the Tirumfall Trilogy. Brumnaugh has a way of making you fall in love with his characters.

Gant is the one of the main characters and he gets into all sorts of trouble. After the trouble he causes he leaves his family behind. His best friend tags along so he’s not alone.

Gant is wanting to become a swordsman, but he is a commoner. He finds himself in battles in the new town. The quote I chose for Gant is: “You keep saying that. What am I training for?”

Fantasy lovers this is a book for you. I promise you won’t regret it.

I wasn’t sure what I was going to be getting myself into when I picked up Fall of the Western Kings, the first book in the Tirumfall Trilogy from J Drew Brumbaugh. I just knew the cover had me hooked enough that I needed to know what was going on inside it. This book was quite the adventure and I really enjoyed all the detail and the action as well as the care put into the writing. This has just about everything you could want in the fantasy world with dragons, wizards, magic and demons just to name a few. We get to know Gant the main character that will take us on quite the ride. The supporting characters were fun to watch and follow as well. I look forward to seeing what we will get with the second installment, Child of Prophecy.

by J. Drew Brumbaugh

This book drew me in from the beginning. I was kept entertained and the author did an exceptional job writing a book full of rich detail. This story is full of action, magic, danger, and great characters. In this story we follow Gant, who is on an adventure he never thought he would be on. Can him and his friends beat the evil that is trying to take over? I found this book to be refreshingly original and I had to start reading the second book in this series right away. I highly recommend this book.

This book starts with Gant, a commoner and resident of a small village where he lives with his parents and helps his father as a blacksmith’s apprentice, where, on his way back home after his swordship training with his uncle, he comes across a friend of his being manhandled by a noble, whom he defends. The fact that he laid hand on a noble and he is only a commoner means he has to leave all that he has known behind, for the life of an outlaw. As he hurriedly packs some essential things and wishes his family and friends a hasty goodbye, he departs for the neighbouring kingdom and escapes from the ramifications of his crime.

As Gant is travelling, his thoughts turn to what he has done and how he may never be able to see his family and friends again, he doesn’t regret what he has done, just feels sadness that this is the result. Suddenly, he sees a figure running over a hill behind him and smiles as he is joined by his best friend and as much as Gant tries to get him to turn back, he refuses and insists on going with Gant. This lightens the load on Gant’s shoulders and he begins to smile and feel relieved that he won’t be on his own, at least for now.

As the two friends walk towards their next destination, they talk about what is going to happen back home and then onto current events within the kingdoms and how it might affect the one they have just left and talk of an upstart invading and taking control of another neighbouring kingdom. Later on in the evening, the noble finds Gant and his friend and threatens them, though his words perturb them and they discuss it after he leaves.

The next day, they arrive at their destination and begin their new lives and get into new routines of work and sparring training, this is until trouble find them and a new journey begins where they will find new friends, old enemies, evil and darkness, good and light and in every way, shape and form, their lives will be changed, but will all this change them as well?

This book is a fantastic work of fantasy and left me wanting to read more, as I hope it will for you.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fall of the Western Kings by J. Drew Brumbaugh is the first book in the Tirumfall trilogy and it was a good read. The synopsis led me to believe it was going to be better than what I read, and I was slightly disappointed because of that, but it was still a good read. I think the descriptions could have been better, as well as the timeline throughout the novel but overall it held my attention alright. It was slightly reminiscent to Game of Thrones to me, at least when the descriptions were well written. This is the first novel I’ve read from this author before, and I will be reading more in the future.
