Table of contents



Fantasy is rife with repetition, but most of us readers rarely seem to tire of it as long as the story is told well. West describes locations so that you can easily visualize them and writes situations in which you feel the doom and gloom of the story. Scenes with the mahk'lar are brilliantly done and very reminiscent of Peter V. Brett's Demon Cycle in that they're both very chilling.

West is very convincing in his description and as the story progresses we are shown both sides of the conflict which made it very enjoyable. Kian begins the story as the unwilling hero, but he develops throughout the story, proving to us that he is more than just a tough mercenary. Ellonlef, through her training as a Sister, is a prime example of a strong female character in fantasy.

In one fell stroke her tedious day to day life is shattered and she is hurled into the brutality of the world. She faces obstacles with courage and determination and she develops just as smoothly as Kian does. The aspect that truly impressed me in The God King was the action. West proves himself to be a masterful wordsmith in describing the scenes so vividly that you can feel the sword nick Kian's cheek or the heat of flames as they sear the earth around him.

Combine the great characterization and the fantastic action sequences and you have a fast-paced, gripping read by a new author. From the cover and the title James A. West's The God King seems like a traditional fantasy novel with the stock unwilling hero or the grim swordsman and a very powerful enemy to overcome. The story is nothing new, but West tells it in such a way that makes it compelling enough for me to struggle to put it down. The God King is a dark fantasy novel worth reading and I'm eager for Wests's future work. Jan 14, Mindy rated it liked it Shelves: The God King Author: Epic Fantasy Heroes are not born, they are forged in the fires of apocalypse At his heels marches a demonic army torn from t Synopsis Title: 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: Dampness and invading roots had crumbled its stones, giving it the look of an ancient, slumbering beast stricken with leprosy.

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. 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 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. Overall I would give the book 3 of 5 clouds due to the rich language and the promising second half. The God King Kindle Location The God King Kindle Locations Posted by Dreamer at 2: Feb 18, Sheila rated it really liked it Shelves: The three moons crash and burn and the Sacred Tower falls down. Sister Ellonlef scrambles through the dust and rubble to save the lives of survivors, but this is only the beginning of the end.

Magi believe there are no gods. Sisters believe the Creator will save. Meanwhile a troop of mercenaries struggles to survive in the swamp as a God King reaches for his ill-gotten throne. The seductive lure of power is equally convincing. And the horror and despair of a broken world creates an enthralling backdrop for this richly-woven tale. The story has a feel of C.

Lewis in its depiction of human folly and demonic tragedy, or of Tolkein in its hints of symbols and mythology. A powerful heroine is no stranger to the arts of war. Faithful followers, reminiscent of Norsemen of old, add humor and pleasing dialog. And the powers of creation are unleashed. A well-written fantasy, The God King tells a complete story leaving the reader with a sense of wonder and wondrous power. But the stage might well be set for more, and I hope perhaps the author will offer a sequel.

I received a free ecopy of this novel from Enchanted Book Promotions in exchange for my honest review. Jul 01, Tepintzin rated it really liked it Shelves: I read this book because it was a Kindle freebie of the day. The reviews were good, so I gave it a shot. West presents a decent fantasy story in the vein of Robert Jordan. I liked the characters and the fact that in the first chapter the gods were revealed as having been dead a long time.

Don't see that twist every day! The sequel takes place yea I read this book because it was a Kindle freebie of the day.

The sequel takes place years later, so this is a prologue to the other two books, it seems. I enjoyed it a lot, and would recommend it as an airplane or mass transit commute book. I'm going to read the other two books in the series. Jul 30, Amaris Gray rated it it was amazing. Fantastic I really enjoyed this book it was fun and full of suspense. The characters were awesome and the story dog you reading. Can't wait to read the next one.

Jun 05, Michelle rated it liked it. Good book You people should just read this book yourselves and write your own review on this novel yourself and I really enjoyed reading this book very much so. Oct 22, Jennifer Nelson rated it really liked it Shelves: Fantastic I loved the story and the way it was written. The ending left enough to make me want to get the second book to see what else happens. Sep 07, Patricia Reding rated it really liked it Shelves: I was provided a copy of The God King as a free download on Amazon.

In exchange, I offer the author this, my honest review. At the outset, I will note a couple of things that under most circumstances might have made me set this book aside—both are issues wholly personal to me and are not likely to speak to other readers. The first is that I am one of those readers of fantasy who does not appreciate the use of the apostrophe for the names of people or things.

For example, how exactly do you pronou I was provided a copy of The God King as a free download on Amazon. Thus, I avoid them. Both issues were present in The God King and so, I might have put it down. However, notwithstanding the apostrophes and dead people, I kept on with The God King. The reason that I did so was simple: I just found the story so well written. Largely the tale of Kian, Hazad and Azuri, three Izutarians who reminded me of The Three Musketeers, West weaves his tale smoothly and colorfully, if rather violently.

So, here were the things I especially liked: For example, Kian thinks: As I recall neither flavor was sweet. The fastidious Azuri may always have sought to look his best, but when he ceased to do so, it was a sign to all of what had been the cost of their traveling. As to the lead female character, Ellonlef, she was a Sister of Najihar, well educated and trained in the art of defense.

It would be interesting to see her take on an even greater role. Also posted on my site at www. Feb 23, Pierre Armel rated it really liked it. It took me a long time between purchasing that book and reading it. I was afraid to be disappointed because of the "indie" status. Well, I was wrong. James West has created a thrilling fantasy novel with strong characters. Not your usual Tolkienesque fantasy though as the world is very dark but I liked it and thought it gave quite a unique edge to the world.

I grew fond of the four main characters and was really looking forward reading four tomes of their adventures. That it did not turned out t It took me a long time between purchasing that book and reading it. That it did not turned out that way did not diminish in any way the good read that was "The God King". Aug 30, John Hugh Glen rated it really liked it Shelves: Mercenary Kian Valera 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? What Do I Think? I downloaded this book as a free download so would I expect it to be a good well woven tale with no proofing mistakes? You can bet your life I would just because a book is free does not mean it has to be full of errors or to have a bad unreadable story. West is a great Story-Weaver and I suspect will become a master of his craft.

This Story-Weaver James A. West has shaped a respectable, enjoyable, fantasy story, which held my attention from start to end gathering momentum until the ending at which I wanted more and indeed I did download book 2 Crown of the Setting Sun Heirs of the Fallen Book 2 of this interesting and intriguing world of James A. West and his well-developed characters. The ancient struggle between good and evil is the basis of this story, and as I have said it is well written has an excellent plot and utterly interesting, enthralling and well developed personalities on both sides of the battle.

The weaving of this tale is exceptionally expressive from time to time to the disadvantage of the story, there are areas in the story that the explanation takes up too many pages starts to delay the story from proceeding as fast as I would have liked. In conclusion, I do say that this book is worth the read especially if you enjoy the fantasy genre and as I said I am now already reading book 2 of this very enthralling world created by a great Story-Weaver.

Mar 30, Carry rated it liked it Shelves: It was a nice, rather quick read but there were elements that annoyed me. The biggest of those is the love in it. To avoid spoilers I will not say too much about it, but for me it happened too quickly. I like to see people fall in love slowly. Sometimes the book feels rushed. There are no subplots or whatsoever and because of this, the book lacked depth.

The main character, Kian, sparked my interested from the beginning but for some reason, I lost my interest in him as the book progressed. I had the feeling there was no evolution and his motivation to do what he is going to do, is also a bit shallow. Hid companions, however, were great characters. I loved their quirks and how they supported Kian. The reason why I finished this book is because I enjoyed the writing and the plot was very interesting though I saw more potential in it. I'r give it a 2. Dec 08, Jackie Miller rated it really liked it. Another Fantasy win for me with this book.

It has a well-thought out world and characters. Something very important in Fantasy novels is that while being fantastical, everything is still believable within the 'rules' of the world. That stands true for The God King. Kian is a born-tough kind of man.

He's survived many physically and mentally trying things in his life. He may not be leading man handsome, but he draws you into the story all the same. I really liked his history and relationship with Another Fantasy win for me with this book. I really liked his history and relationship with Hazad and Azuri.

They have gone through many things together throughout their lives that have formed a brotherly bond. Not to forget the female lead in the novel, Ellonlef. She is capable, strong and smart. A woman you can root for and not be annoyed by: She starts him on his path to stop the evil Prince Varis, now known as The God King, before he destroys the world as they know it.

A wonderful Fantasy novel, from an author I've never read before but plan on keeping an eye out for future books. The God King has a story that will keep you reading and throw in some surprises along the way. Jan 17, Brianna Kilcrease rated it really liked it. I hadn't read a fantasy book in a while when I picked this book up on my kindle. For some strange reason this book really made me want to read The Game of Thrones series. I liked this book alot but I give it a three because of the format I had to read it in. I had pdf and on my kindle I can't read pdf files because the writing is so small and when I zoom in it's just a big mess.

I liked the characters alot. Good fantasy characters, Kian and Ellonlef were my favorites: I loved the world that West has created in this and the scenes in it were vivid and detailed.

The prince is lured by a voice into the temple and opened the well because it would give him god powers. Instead he experience pain beyond writing although the writer described it pretty well.

Highly recommend I stumbled upon The God King while searching for fantasy books, and decided to read it. I am so glad I did; this book is fun! It is very well done, and it pulled me in from page one. The story flowed well; I was never bored.

There was a lot of action and suspense, but it also has very in-depth characters. There are strong, tough men but there is also a really cool strong woman. The author was very good at making me care about them. If you want a fast-paced fantasy, I definitely recommend The God King. There were several realms, each with major centers.

Much of the the story was spent traversing between them as Kian continued his quest. A map would have allowed the reader to gain some appreciation of distances, direction and topography. I found this tale dark Even the few happy moments were in the midst of something sinister and murky going on. It made me realize that just as a novel needs a fine balance between action vs. It simple wears you down after a while Obviously a personal and objective opinion. An extremely well written adult fantasy adventures with some truly intriguing situations and some interesting characters.

However, the fact the there was no map much needed IMHO and the persistent dark atmosphere which gave the tale a continual oppressive feel, had the affect of lessening its appeal to me. The God King Heirs of the Fallen by James A West is good fantasy story of a young prince who hires a mercenary to help him find a long lost temple that will give the prince all the powers of creation. When it is found and what issues forth from there is much more than the prince can handle and way more than the mercenary expected. The prince becomes more than he should be and upends the world as they know.

The mercenary then sets forth with his trusty companions to correct this problem. I wanted to give this story 5 stars.

Buy for others

But I found that for some reason it just did not keep my interest as I would have liked. The characters were all fleshed and reasonably interesting but there was not enough dialog to really get to know them. The main character has a love interest but there is no real romance. The fight scenes are clear but there is just no real excitement to the story. I am sure there are plenty of people who will find this book good enough and it is good enough just not Great.

Slightly spoilery though hopefully I won't give much away. I found this to be an enjoyable, fairly quick read. It doesn't really break new ground, but for me, that's a plus, because I enjoy heroic fantasy. Kian is a likeable reluctant hero and Varis nuanced just enough to keep him from being a typical cookie cutter antagonist. Pacing never bogged down, though at times I wished that there were perhaps fewer battles with higher stakes. Until the last, I never really felt like Kian was in true peril, but fortunately the final conflict did leave me wondering how anything could turn out right in the end.

I gave this 3 stars but it's a solid three. I think I would have given it a 4 if the characterization was a little stronger and if the buddy banter had been used a little more freely. There was just enough to show the depth of friendship and provide lighter moments, but it fell just a little shy of the mark for me compared with, say, Michael J.

Sullivan's Royce and Hadrian. Still, a solid story. One person found this helpful. To my surprise, I actually enjoyed the book.
