It is the last days of the great Nephite nation and their civilization teeters on the brink of devastating war. Their blood-enemies and rival nation, the Lamanites, have sworn their destruction. As the conflict unfolds upon this ancient American landscape, courageous heroes fight to defend their people against ruthless forces of evil.
Amaron and his Ten Scouts, Zelph the White Lamanite, and Anathoth the Lamanite general all must face the Gadianton Master Akish-Antum, as he orchestrates the greatest terror the land has ever known.
In a world at war, who will rise to become the heroes of the fallen?
"It is nice when you find an original vision at work. I found one of those in David J. West, whose Heroes of the Fallen has imagination in spades. The world created by West is fully realized and backed up by both firm historical knowledge and a good feel for mythology. If imagination is the engine for Heroic Fantasy, fine prose is the fuel. Here, too, West achieves." ~Charles Gramlich, Bitter Steel, Cold in the Light, and the Talera Cycle Trilogy "It's a great read..." ~Wayne May, publisher, Ancient American magazine "HEROES OF THE FALLEN inhabits some war-torn battlefield between historic fiction, swords and sorcery, and epic fantasy. At times it feels like sword and sorcery, particularly in the way West writes his characters. These are painted with pulp overtones and bright splashes of color. Amaron has shades of Robert E. Howard s favorite Cimmerian about him." ~Brian Murphy, author, The Silver Key "An epic tale of valor and degeneracy where heroes are beset on every side by wicked schemers whose schemes, like a flood, threaten to drown them all. Heroes of the Fallen is sure to please any reader who enjoys a multi-threaded plot full of both historical wonders and vicious intrigues." ~Daron D. Fraley, author, The Chronicles of Gan: The Thorn.
