Publisher's Summary

The dwarves have gone to battle, and they have been victorious. But outside the realm, dark forces are at work.

A secret army of Orcs, made immortal by the hidden powers of the Black Water, now marches towards Girdlegard, set to unleash its fury upon the kingdom. Sooner than they realize, Tungdil and his comrades will need to summon all their courage to do battle against this bloodthirsty horde.

The Orcs are not the only threat. An unspeakable new power is growing and threatens the very existence of the dwarves. But both enemies have forgotten one very important truth: A dwarf is never more dangerous than when total obliteration seems inevitable.

Need book 3 please

The Dwarves books have been 2 of my favorite books of all time. The characters are rich in personality and the plots are exciting!

A great sequel<br />

Loved it, continued the story perfectly from the first entry. I will eagerly await the next entries in the series to be turned into audio book.

WHY CHANGE NARRATOR?

After listening to the first book I recommended it to friends and family. Now I regret it.
Mathew Wolf did an amazing job with the first in this series. So sad that the change to Neil Dickson effected the story so poorly? It was just more difficult to follow along and many times the characters voices merged.
TOO BAD they changed the story teller part way through this amazing tale.

Story: Great; Narrator: Meh

The narrator has a very pleasant voice but when he tries to do voices for the characters, all dwarves sound the same and all elf/alfar and human sound the same making it very difficult to tell who says what.

to much political intrigue

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

it was hard to listen to due to me having to fast forward through all of the political intrigue.

What was most disappointing about Markus Heitz’s story?

over the half the book is infested with boring useless political intrigue. the first book was awesome, the second book should be rewritten with all of the political intrigue removed.

Narrator not as good as the first book

I fully understand that it's difficult to depict so many different characters but at times it felt like Neil Dickson was reading the book for the first time. Some characters changed accents throughout. Also having just listened to the first book, the once Scottish dwarves now speaking with a sort of Welsh accent, took a bit of getting used to.

Superb Saga

A brilliant tale in the best tradition of fantasy. Cheesy at times but engaging and beautifully told.
