Fall of the Western Kings
Tirumfall Trilogy Book 1
by J Drew Brumbaugh

Epic Fantasy 

Gant is a commoner, forbidden from learning swordsmanship. He trains in
spite of the law and ends up branded an outlaw. However fate
intervenes while Gant is on the run and soon he is embroiled in an
odyssey with forces of darkness that can only be vanquished with help
from his friends, not all of whom are human. An epic that delivers
the best in the tradition of classic fantasy.

Child of Evil
Tirumfall Trilogy Book 2 

The story started with "Fall of the Western Kings". Now "Child
of Evil" continues the odyssey of Gant, the hero who killed Varg
with his magical sword Valorious and who must now use his strength
and cunning to find and neutralize the child born of evil. This child
is prophesized to lead the demons of the western kingdoms to victory
over the people of the east. Other characters accompany Gant to Ferd,
the city where the child will be born. Amelia is a shape-changer who
flies to the west to do reconnaissance only to be captured and
imprisoned. Pris, the emperor and blossoming wizard, worries about
the evil forces and knows the child cannot be allowed to unite the
demonic powers. His untested magic will be key to stopping the
impending doom. Dalphnia, Gant’s wife, is a woodland nymph who can
control the trees of the forest and is determined to see her husband
come through this journey alive. Can this unlikely group intervene in
time to stop the child and the carnage that is sure to follow? Will
it mean killing the child? Resolving this moral dilemma while
outwitting the demons and getting back to the safety of their homes
makes for a rousing adventure. "Child of Evil" is the
second book in J. Drew Brumbaugh’s fantasy series, The Tirumfall

At that moment, tiny dots of golden light began to appear up near the ceiling.  The swirling pinpoints circled and coalesced into a writhing ball of iridescent particles that settled lower and lower until the sphere hovered midway between the floor and ceiling.  Suspended in the center of the room, the radiance congealed into a glowing sphere of cold, white fire. Inside the globe, a woman appeared dressed in white, so pure, so perfect, so flawless.  She stepped from the brilliance into the room.  Taller than even Pris, she was slender yet with a mystical strength about her.  In her blue eyes was a sense of timeless knowledge.  She wore a white gown so bright that they could not look directly at her.  It was as if the sun had entered the house and this woman stood directly in its center.
Gant regained his composure first.  “I know you,” he managed.
“Yes, Gant you do know me.  We met last in Pogor tower when I came for my son’s body.”
“What do you want?” asked Pris. 

She smiled, dazzling, radiant, marvelous.  “I do more than retrieve the dead.  I bring a warning.  A child will be born in Scaltzland.  A child of evil who will bring death and ruin to the world.  This child will unite the minions of darkness in the West and lead them into the East to bring destruction to all you hold dear.”

I live in northeast Ohio where I write sci-fi, fantasy, and suspense
novels, along with a few short stories. Mostly I write stories I
think I'd like to read with characters that are interesting enough
that readers want to find out what happens to them. I also spend time
teaching and training at the karate dojo my wife and I founded,
building a Japanese garden in the back yard, and taking walks in the
woods with our dog. I have six novels in print, the most recent being
"Bula Bridge," a collection of short stories, and a
co-authored children’s book. I continue to work on my next book and
seem to always have several stories in various stages of completion.

  1. Thanks for noticing. I do like my cover designer. Currently Fall of the Western Kings is available for 99 cents - but only until this blog tour is over. I hope you are reading something really good.


Please try not to spam posts with the same comments over and over again. Authors like seeing thoughtful comments about their books, not the same old, "I like the cover" or "sounds good" comments. While that is nice, putting some real thought and effort in is appreciated. Thank you.
