    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.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Dwarves the most enjoyable?

    I hate to compare authors to authors but it is to me the best way to explain how well written and completely put together this book is. If you have missed that first excitement upon read your first J. R. R. Tolkien or an Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman book. The magic is back in this book!!! A Must Read!!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I think the hero (Tungdil Bolofar aka Tungdil Goldhand) is my favorite character. I know that's very cliche but his story is will thought out. Well drawn character who you cant help but to pull for.


    What does Matthew Wolf bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Matthew Wolf helped bring the characters alive with his voice and inflections. I hope the producers continue to use him to record the remainder of the series. To me Matthew Wolf is up their with the likes of Scott Brick!!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!! But since I use these audio books to get me through my daily work day I had to refrain from listening to them outside of work.


    Any additional comments?

    Please Please Get the rest of the series their is another 3 books in the collection. I know the author writes in german but translation can't be that hard. Its not like its a unknown language.
