Summary

The dwarves have gone to battle, and they have been victorious. But outside the realm, dark forces are working.... 

A secret army of Orcs, made immortal by the hidden powers of the Black Water, now marches towards Girdlegard, set to unleash its fury upon the kingdom. Sooner than they realise, Tungdil and his comrades will need to summon all their courage to do battle against this bloodthirsty horde.  

The Orcs are not the only threat. An unspeakable new power is growing and threatens the very existence of the dwarves. But both enemies have forgotten one very important truth: a dwarf is never more dangerous than when total obliteration seems inevitable....

Disappointing performance

The reader of the first book was excellent. Its very jarring and off putting to have a different reader for this book as he gives many of the characters different voices and struggles to pronounce some of the places at times. When you spend 15+ hours with these characters and then there voices suddenly change, they become completely different. For example 2 of the main characters originally had up beat Scottish accents. Now they are Welsh and very miserable. Story is still great though.

book 2 of this series

A slow start but strong thereafter. I wondered where it could go after book 1 wrapped everything up but I was not disappointed.

I purchased book 3 and 4 an hour after finishing this book. Now I just need them to finish recording book5

Excellent

I particularly enjoyed that it wasn't predictable, with undecided bad guys/ good guys, and that our heroes were appreciated for something other than their beauty.
