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 includes:

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.
