author does a terrific job with each tribe and assigning them different traits and characteristics All dwarves are not alike And the author fits this book in nicely with the overall arc of this world The problem was the journey as it was dry and it seemedlike a history lesson than a story Throughout this novel I had no real connection to any of the dwarves My only connection was to two minor characters.I would only recommend this book to fans of this universe The background information is vast and thorough but I believe only die hard fans will enjoy this book for the insight to the dwarf

Thorbardin By the author of Gates of Thorbardin Original , first printing The Kenneth Anderson Omnibus first printing My name is Cale Greeneye, and my dreams of seeing far off lands is coming true Unfortunately, it s taken war against the humans to realize my ambitions We were content living inside the mountain, and we looked forward to trading with our neighbors during the annual Balladine celebration However, my father, Colin Stonetooth, became uneasy as chieftain of Thorin Our most dependable patrol failed to return from a mission, and thousands of armed humans amassed outside our walls among the regular My name is Cale Greeneye, and my dreams of seeing far off lands is coming true Unfortunately, it s taken war against the humans to realize my ambitions We were content living inside the mountain, and we looked forward to trading with our neighbors during the annual Balladine celebration However, my father, Colin Stonetooth, became uneasy as chieftain of Thorin Our most dependable patrol failed to return from a mission, and thousands of armed humans amassed outside our walls among the regular guests Our fears turned to violence when the strangers breached our defenses Now, I am leading thousands of survivors, as we search for Kal Thax An old dwarf spoke of this mythical land, and we hope to find our dwarven relatives for sanctuary My longing to scout the world has come at a costly price I always enjoy the characters in books, but this book made that difficult I tried to make connections to the characters, but many of the dwarves died shortly after their introduction and there wasn t a clear main character For those reasons, I didn t know how to write the summary above until I discovered who could actually tell it Cale Greeneye seemed to be the best choice War was the main problem right away with jealousy and envy fueling the dispute Many humans viewed the dwarves as wealthy and privileged, and an evil leader took advantage of that sentiment A different antagonist created unrest in the second half of the book, but his motivations were very similar The second half of the book wascohesive, as it focused on the area around Kal Thax The different dwarven factions around the mountain distrusted each other, and their alliance was in peril The Thorin refugees added to the strain, but they also presented solutions If you don t like conflict, fighting, and discontent then you shouldn t read this book Overall, I liked the book and problems but wanted a main character or two to follow along the way I get the sense my wish may come true in the sequel There wasn t as much unrest at the end there are still foreseeable issues remaining , so I plan on giving Hammer and Axe a shot Another great book in the series that ties everything together nicely from the previous books some pretty great battles and characters with great writing as well I loved all the call backs to previous events from the first two books The main character is fun to read about and it s easy to assume his role as you are reading, feeling the characters emotions as he makes the hard decisions and does what needs to be done regardless the outcome The villians were written very well in this volume sp Another great book in the series that ties everything together nicely from the previous books some pretty great battles and characters with great writing as

as he makes the hard decisions and does what needs to be done regardless the outcome The villians were written very well in this volume specifically as i found myself really feeling for the dwarves and hating the antagonists deeply, especially because of all the history from the first two books the builds up this comradery with the dwarves once you finally begin to read this one Fantastic book, I would say out of all them I enjoyed the second volume the most but this was a great finish to the Dwarven Nations and I was left satisfied when I finished reading it Pure world building and background for the Dwarves of Krynn A great resource if you re going to play a dwarf in DM a RP heavy Dragonlance game The actual plot leaves something to be desired because the author has to fit so much lore into 300 pages If you re looking for a capitivating story you might want to pass If, like me, you love the Dragonlance setting or need flavor for a dwarf character for an upcoming game, this is excellent. The reader of this was boring, boring, boring His voice was flat and monotone and he barely pauses between paragraphs or chapter breaks I was pretty disappointed and, while I am a huge Dragonlance fan and love stories about the dwarves, I won t be listening to the 2nd or 3rd books. The war of dwarves It was neat to learn about different dwarven factions from the DragonLance setting Very little on how they came to be butcentered around how they differed at the time of the book. You can never go wrong with Dragonlance I don t think I ve ever read a bad DL book This is a great start to a trilogy. De las secuelas de Dragonlance son pr cticamente las nicas que valen la pena y Huma, por supuesto Muy buenos libros si se leen a la edad apropiada. The stories are fun, but you won t fall in love with any of the characters The real story is in how the factions came to be, and not so much on the leaders You can get a bitin depth on a few of them in other Dragonlance novels I d categorize this under lore rather than a novel.
