Publisher's Summary

Fantasy Faction semifinalist for the SPFBO 2018

A babe is born in the shadows of the ravine city, a child who will end the self-imposed exile of the dwarves and usher in a new age of glory.

Years later, Ravine Guard Carnac Thayn discovers a break-in at the Scriptorium. A dwarf has been murdered and a book stolen, but the ruling council do nothing.

Then, when Carn is called to investigate thuds and crashes from the mines, old horror rises from the deep, and the city is threatened with slaughter.

Rumors begin to circulate about a mythical axe said to be lost below the earth, an axe wielded by the dwarf lords of old that might just be the last hope of a race marked to die.

But deception is rife, and unseen forces manipulate all paths to the future.

It is a pivotal moment for the dwarves, and Carn must make a choice that will either save or damn his people.

Blood will flow in rivers through the ravine. Friends will become foes. A name will be forgotten.

And a hero will rise.

Kept me engaged

Very good storyline, kept me wanting to know what was coming next. Enough twists to keep you guessing. Mike Carnes did a very good job narrating, whether just leading you through the story or getting into the various characters. One gets the feeling he really enjoys what he's doing. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. Bring on the dwarfs!

Great Beginning!

Having enjoyed DP Pryor's work in the past, this can now be included in that category.
The narrator gives a great performance. His voice is smooth and clear, bringing the characters personalities out.
This audio was given to me free and I voluntarily gave this review.

Entertaining

This book has plenty of action, a unique and creative world, and entertaining characters and storyline. Plenty of gore. The narrator did a phenomenal job! I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Fantastic

The story keeps you engaged, the characters have personality, sarcasm and easy to follow banter... the narrator is great he has the voices down. When you hear the dwarves speak you know it’s a dwarf. He really brings them to life. I thought the books were really well writen until I heard them come alive, Mike Carnes has easily jump to my top five narrators. Never heard of him before this but he knocked it out of the park. I do not give a five star lightly. This book rivals the books “Dwarves” by Markus Heintz. Can’t wait to see where the rest of this series goes! Well worth the listen and purchase !!!!
