story is solid, though predictable at points. voice acting is amazing. love the way they author turns the underdog into a hero. he has the knowledge, but lacks the skill, while a bit montage'ish it works. over all fun and exciting to listen to, hope there's another book in the series cause man I loved it.

For countless millennia, the dwarves of the Fifthling Kingdom have defended the stone gateway into Girdlegard.

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.

love dwarves(as a fantasy race), always have. nice to find a book were they aren't just comic relief. the writer makes them strong, hearty, and and resiliant. not just a sad declining race. loved almost every thing about the book. the characters were engaging, the story was compelling, and the style of writing was thoroughly enjoyable. the only flaw that I see (and it's not a flaw for me) is that there are predictable dwarven patterns throughout, and the "this is how we beat the bad guy" theme. that being said... LOVED IT. Can't wait to get the next book.

was excellent. nice split between action and story. just when you start to think alright enough story, it goes straight into well written action. captivating, engrossing, found it hard to find a point to pause and do other stuff. only complaint is that occasionally the jump from story line to story line makes it feel like you are missing information. that aside , get it, listen to it, love it. also the narration is spot on.
