For countless millennia, the dwarves of the 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 , 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.

Customer Reviews


I just happened upon this book while looking for something in the fantasy section. After just a few pages in I knew this was going to be a great adventure! I couldn't stop reading once I started and finished in just under three days. I just downloaded the second book in this series and can't wait to begin reading. Amazing!!!!

Unexpected. In a good way.

After reading so many fantasy novels that would fall short, this one delivered. I already have the second volume and I'm looking forward to getting the third.

Want to know what a "runt" is? Buy the book!

If you want to stay up late every night reading, then buy this book! The story reminds me somewhat of Tolkien's books. If you enjoyed The Hobbit then you would enjoy this book. The story and characters are definitely not as in depth as George RR
Martins books. The characters are all very likable. I liked the bit of humor. You will not regret reading this book. I have to go kill some "Runts" now! Buy this book and learn what runts are! Hehe
