excitement and adventure. Outside his own kingdom, in search of fortune and
glory, he finds a much different world, one divided by racial strife and
overrun by war. The orcs to the south want to conquer all dwarves and sell
them as slaves. The humans to the east want to control the world’s
resources. Caught in the middle, Roskin finds himself chased by slave
traders and soldiers alike as he discovers that friendship is the best
fortune of all. Just when he thinks he has triumphed, an act of betrayal
sends him into bondage. His only hope of escape is the faltering courage of
a disgraced warrior whose best days are behind him…
This book was received as a review copy. I enjoyed this book a lot, and look forward to reading the sequels. Roskin is the main character, and he is heir to the throne of one of the Dwarven Kingdoms. He is given the choice to take a year to “find inner peace”, before accepting his role in the counsel. His heart seeks adventures so he decides to leave his homeland and seek glory in other lands. He goes on many adventures, but his main goal is to seek the statue The Brotherhood of Dwarves, from the Black Rock Fortress. I felt like this was a very good fantasy novel. D.A. Adams keeps the reader entertained throughout the book. It was very short, so it was a quick read. The characters are detailed, and every time they get comfortable something comes along to mess things up, which keeps you entertained.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good fantasy novel, and likes a short read. If you liked The Hobbit, you will probably like this book.
