A fantasy series that appears to be based upon a Persian legend.
In general, this is a story of how a young king, Arislan, attempts to
retake his kingdom of Palse back from Luistanian invaders. The cast
- Arislan - The crowned prince of Palse who is leading the revolt to
take back his kingdom.
- Daryoon - A close friend and adviser to Arislan, as well as a
- Narsus - A former advisor to the court in Ekubatana, the capital
of Palse until he fell into disfavor. Now acts as an advisor to
- Pharangese - a holy warrior. She is vowed to protect Arislan and
fight with him.
Heroic Legend has all the required elements of a proper fantasy
story, including magic, sword fights, traitors, and general purpose
all around nasty dudes.
In general, I liked the The Heroic Legend of Arislan and I
believe that most fans of fantasy will also enjoy the series.
