This is part of the Dragonlance world and is the third book of a trilogy. This can be read as a stand alone novel. In this one, humans control the land that surrounds Thorbardin as the dwarfs have chosen to stay inside their stronghold. One particular dwarf has his destiny forced upon him as he becomes leader to a group of dwarfs who decide to take back this land.

This book is the best one of the trilogy. This trilogy explores the history of the Dwarfs and how they are a formidable race of Krynn.

A wonderful series. Lots of history, while not being boring. Lots of good characters as well!

I am actually thinking if this deserves a 2.

The writing style is still about the same, but logical consistency and average IQ of the characters...

Here are some examples:

Empire: "How about a truce until spring? We don't cross the wall[1], you don't cross the wall[2], everyone wins[3]."
Dervin: "Ok, sounds like a good plan!"
[1] We only would to kick you out, anyway
[2] You probably need to to get a lot of the stuff that you don't get out there, but that's your problem
[3] We spend the winter cleaning

Chris, Main patron, July 2015, 4 stars:

The finale of the Dragonlance Dwarven Nations trilogy finds the land of Kal-Thax overrun by Ergothian Slavers. The Mountain Dwarves have retreated into Thorbardin, and await the prophesied king that will lead them back to greatness as well as victory over the Ergothians that have stolen their lands.

a brilliant book, showing the strong character and bravery of the dwarves and their capacity to create marvellous works both in stone and ore!! Dirkin turned out to be such a strong leader and did so well by his people! hope to read more about the history of dwarves in other books later on!!
