Summary

Reclaiming Honor (The Way of Legend, Book 1)  

The story begins here!  

Best-selling and award-winning author of STIGERS TIGERS and the KARUS SAGA, Marc Alan Edelheit has teamed up with national best-selling author Quincy J. Allen to deliver a fresh epic fantasy adventure, told from the perspective of dwarves. This action-packed series introduces a new hero, and fighter, Tovak Stonehammer.  

The dwarven nations are facing extermination. Their ancient enemy has returned. The Horde is coming and, along with it, a dark tide is spreading across the world of Tanis. One by one, the free peoples of the world have fallen under a shadow, crushed by the merciless boot of the Horde.  

The Syrulian Empire, the last buffer state between three dwarven nations and the advancing armies of the Horde, has fallen. Vastly outnumbered, the dwarves must undertake the Great March, uprooting their entire civilization in search of a new homeland. They hope to find a safe harbor beyond the reach of the enemy, for the nations are not strong enough to withstand the might of the Horde.  

Every sword is needed.  

A Pariah amongst his people, an outcast and undesirable, Tovak intends to serve and do his part. He must hide his true identity in hopes of making a name for himself and proving his worth. Punished for the actions of his father, something in which he had no part, he has suffered one setback, one injustice after another. Yet his faith in Thulla - the rejected god of his people - is strong and has kept him going. Tovak has pursued his dream of serving his people and working towards the day when he will be able to cast off the mantle of Pariah and build Legend of his own.

Bearing the burden of his people’s disdain and his family’s disgrace, Tovak has joined a warband. Armed with his faith, determination, and courage, he must face heartless comrades, deadly monsters, and the enemy who would like nothing better than to place any dwarf’s head on a stake.

Will Tovak rise to the occasion? Or will he falter and fall before the blades of the Horde or, worse, his own comrades when they discover the truth? Tovak must find a way to reclaim his honor and prove his worth. All the while, he might also be the key to his people’s salvation, or perhaps even their downfall...for a true god has taken an interest in him and his future. The path of destiny lies before him and so, too, does the Way of Legend.  

Set upon the world of Tannis, some years before the arrival of Karus and the Lost Legio IX, this book is a Last War Novel.

Great Story, Great narrator

This book I think is the best audible book I have ever listened to and one of the best, most relatable characters in any books I have read or listened to.

Good but unexpectedly great!

I don't usually follow Dwarves. This changed my mind. You grow to love the characters and the narrator is fantastic! The story draws you in and the action tops it all off.

Good Story wrong Narrator

This story was enjoyable, but John Lee can not range his voice to do the deep voices associated with dwarfs, so it made the audible version hard to get through.

A true classic story

This book depicts the development of young man as he works to build his own life and overcome the hatred he has received due to the failure of his father. He must overcome hardship and resentment in order to prove his own self worth to the world.

You can almost feel the anguish as he goes through his life and the intense struggles he must endure.

The narrator has done an outstanding job though previously John Lee was not one of my favorite narrators.
