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 land of Ionandar, 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.

Sent out into the world to deliver a message and reacquaint himself with his people, the young foundling finds himself thrust into a battle for which he has not been trained. Not only his own safety, but the life of every man, woman and child in Girdlegard depends upon his ability to embrace his heritage. Although he has many unanswered questions, Tungdil is certain of one thing: no matter where he was raised, he is a true dwarf.

And no one has ever questioned the courage of the dwarves.

    " I did hover between giving the book 3 and 4 stars, because I really did like it... but, the truth it a very large part of the book bored me. I think it was just too long... "

    " Loving this series at the moment. Just finished the third book and can't wait for the 4th. Big Warhammer fan and this is pretty close to it. Really liked how it explained the different clans of Dwarves and has it all at the end of the book with each notable member. "

    " It was decent. Not spectacular. Sometimes it felt like the plot twists were written by a child. It was also very predictable on many occasions. Not sure if I will go on to the rest of the series. "
