Two thousand years ago, the dwarf Albrek went looking for new mines in the land of Thraxon in the hopes of becoming rich - and vanished. Now the dwarves must find Albrek's magical Ring of Searching before their mines run dry, a possibility which threatens the livelihood of the entire dwarf realm. Alexander Taylor joins a familiar company of adventurers on a quest to discover what happened to Albrek, find his mythical tomb, and locate the lost talisman. But finding the ring may be the least of the adventurers' problems once they cross paths with an ancient, wandering paladin, Bane, who warns of a great evil working in all of the known lands. Following in Albrek's footsteps, Alex and his friends travel to the haunted Isle of Bones, where a mysterious creature lurks in a deserted village, to the cursed city of Neplee, where the dwarfs are hunted by the undead hellerash, and through the shadow of an empty oracle's tower, where a whispered legend is about to come true.

"Great all around"
This book had a great narrarator and storyline and was entertaining until the end I loved all the characters and all the interesting perspectives. Thanks M.L Forman!
"The best book ever"
I tried out this book and I loved it. I hope the next book is just as good as books 1-3. I couldn't stop listening to all of the series.
this is a great book and a great Trilogy for all ages I could read it to my nieces and nephews and they enjoy it while I enjoyed myself it is hard to find a good book that alone is good trilogy so I'm glad you found it.
I love this series yay yay yay yay tag along with the biggest and the best
Excellent book and great narration. This has been a delightful series that seems to be a cross between Lord of the Rings/Hobbit and Brandon Mull! If you like either of those series/writings then you will love this book.
E.B. Stevens did a fantastic job reading this book- as usual!
"It's a great read. Loved the book and loved the audio."
It was very well done. Truly brought the characters to life. I recommend it to anyone!!!
"I thought the heading was optional..."
I've listened to this book several times and it never disappoints. Stevens does a great job bringing the story to life with all his different voices for the characters.
"An extraordinary adventure!!!!"
I came across this series by chance, much like young Alex came across his own adventure! I can say that like Alex, I have been thoroughly pleased with all of the excitement each adventure has brought!
If you are eager for an adventure filled with magic, dwarf kingdoms, elfin realms, oracles, Wizards, dragons, and the hunt for treasure you will do well to join in on this adventure!!
M.L. Forman takes you on a wonderful adventure that E.B. Stevens brings to life masterfully.
each one is better than the previous. great, clean stories about honor, friendship, and adventure
"Great book with no foul language"
A nice adventure again. I look forward to enjoying the next book on this series.
