For countless millennia, the dwarves of the Fifthling Kingdom have defended the stone gateway into Girdlegard. Many and varied foes have hurled themselves against the portal and died attempting to breach it. No man or beast has ever succeeded. Until now... Abandoned as a child, Tungdil the blacksmith labors contentedly in the Kingdom of Fifthling the only dwarf in a kingdom of men. Although he does not want for friends, Tungdil is very much aware that he is alone - indeed, he has not so much as set eyes on another dwarf. But all that is about to change. Sent out into the world to deliver a message and reacquaint himself with his people, the young foundling finds himself thrust into a battle for which he has not been trained. Not only his own safety, but the life of every man, woman and child in Girdlegard depends upon his ability to embrace his heritage. Although he has many unanswered questions, Tungdil is certain of one thing: no matter where he was raised, he is a true dwarf. And no one has ever questioned the courage of the Dwarves.
Hurray!!!! A classic fantasy novel with a classic, noble hero! This book is well written and the narrator, Matthew Wolf. does a fine job of bringing thestory to life.
This is without a doubt the best audiobook I have listened to to date. I love it and hope they translate more of Heitz books soon!!!
Markus Heitz is an amazing story teller. From the introduction of his characters to the very end of the book is just phenomenal!!!! The book holds you and never lets you go, you crave more!! Please release more of his works in English and English audio books. It would be shame not to share his work!
