The Good...

These stories are fast-paced and reminded me of the movie The Lord of the Rings. The epic scale of the story itself drew me in until I was rooting for each character to find the courage to face their inner demons and reach their hidden potential.

Although the title suggests this is a much larger book, I would compare it to a collection of four novellas. This makes it perfect for those short periods of time when we want to be entertained, but may not have the time to devote to a larger

The Nameless Dwarf Omnibus is a collection of three works by D.P. Prior, focussing on the travels and woe's of the Nameless Dwarf and his companions.

This is the first work I've read of Prior and I really, really enjoyed it. Being completely new to the World where it's set, I had no background knowledge or previous experience of the history of events, or geography; however I didn't find this a problem in the slightest. He has a great style of writing that kept me captivated from beginning to end,

The Nameless Dwarf Omnibus contains the first three stories following the dwarf known only as Nameless. If you have read some of Derek's other work than you may be familiar with him as he has been a companion of Shadrak the Unseen and Deacon Shader.

The book starts out with Nameless being a very mysterious figure who has hired a boy from the Night Hawks (a criminal group) to help him find information on where his people have fled to. Nils, his companion, is the son of the leader of th

When Momma came downstairs brandishing The Nameless Dwarf I knew I HAD to have it. I was sucked in so fast. The author really knows how to push the envelope and describe the gore with enough detail that you feel like you’re there or watching a movie, but pulls back right before it’s too much.

The plot itself is really quite masterful and aside from the questing/looking for something aspect of the fantasy this story felt fresh! I know that if I were reading each individ

This book, or books in the Omnibus, was on sale at Amazon for 99¢. There were many 4 and 5 star reviews lauding the author's world building and his characters' depth and diversity. So, I thought I would give it a try. Why not, all I could lose was 99¢ , right? Well, I lost it.
I tried to like the first book in the series, "Carnifex". I slogged through page after page devoted to swilling down kegs of beer and ale. Of "authentic" dwarf lingo and culture. Of mysterious , ancient texts full of misty

This was an ok read, I just kept feeling I was missing things which must have happened in DP Prior's other series. So I didn't really feel connected to the story. The 3 books felt like more like short stories as well, though they did happen one after the other there was no real 'end' to every book and the next one would pick up with a gap between the two.

They were definitely not bad books, not at all, the writing style was very pleasant to read. I liked Nameless quite a bit, but there wasn't the

Tried but just couldn't get past the first 100-150 pages. Just was not interesting

An enjoyable read. I do feel that I missed something by not having read any of the author's other books. Once I got past the background events, it was a fun story.
