The land is changing. Living under the Dashtall with Senglene’s golden city above, the Southern Dwarves know this more than anyone else. They find their old tunnels sealed up. New paths open as rock crumbles for no reason, and gold and silver veins dry, like the very ores are sucked from the stone, by magic. The latest slew of changes has them beset by ravenous creatures, and they’re soon fighting for their lives. These dwarves will not back down. Kelnoc struggles to temper wisdom with emotion and guide an emotion-driven, battle hardy kin to victory against seemingly insurmountable odds. This is the fifth book in my Prequel Stories series.
