Publisher's summary

The Hornblaris Mountains - home to the great Dwarven people - are a miraculous sight to behold, but beneath their towering peaks lie monstrous dangers. Carmen Delarosa, a travelling merchant's daughter, has lived within the mountains and even travelled their passages her entire life without issue. But when a drake appears along a routine trading route and slaughters an entire caravan, including her family, Carmen vows to take justice into her own hands. Alone, in the Deep Roads, and with only her wits to guide her, Carmen will attempt the impossible: to hunt, and kill, the Drake of Ehknac.

Great High Fantasy

This is a classic revenge story. Dwarf Carmen DeLarosa's entire family is killed by a drake that attacked their caravan. A year later, after she comes of age, Carmen sets out to hunt down the beast.

So, I've personally never been a huge fan of these small, bite-sized stories, especially in fantasy, but this one is really well done and entertaining. The writing is tight, and most importantly, the writing is *good.* I do wish this story was a little more fleshed out, but again that comes to my size bias. The action is quick and flows well. Her motivations are clear and make sense.

This is just the first of a series, and it appears the next book is 3x the length of this one, which is good. It doesn't appear this second book is out on audio.

Price is a good, deliberate narrator whose voice just drips with gravitas. I'm not certain he's the best choice for this story, given it's exclusively from the point of view of a female dwarf, but he does a great job anyway. He's one of those guys who could narrate the instructions on a pack of ramen and make it sound epic.

My verdict: if you like your fantasy tight and quick, this is a great read or listen.
