HEROES OF THE FALLEN begins fast-paced and draws you in immediately. It draws upon fictional characters but real events. I have read the history portrayed in this book, but I have never felt of its true nature until I read this book. It helps you to understand how things were and how it could have been. It enwraps you into the story and you feel like you are there. It s not predictable. I got consumed by its words. The characters are well-developed and real. It shows the faithful and their unwavering ability to stand strong and the penetration of the Gadianton robbers into their most influential positions in their government. I found myself rooting for characters....You know you have a good book in your hands when you feel the emotions. --Timpanogos Times
David J. West has created a story line filled with excitement, archaeology, treasure and real history. This is a must-read not only for entertainment but also to open new doors and vistas of possibility for the mind. West has intertwined fiction and history in such a way that the reader comes away believing that it might be true. He has used actual archaeological evidence to weave into his story making it more real and exciting. As a novice author, West has done a wonderful job of keeping the reader between the covers of this book. --Bruce H. Porter, PHD., BYU professor
