This is not your typical Dwarf story. Tungdil is the hero of this story, not a side-kick, not comic relief. The story isn't new - Tungdil is an orphan raised with humans so he is always an outsider, he is sent on a journey, and discovers himself and his past. It is the classic bidungsroman plot line. What sets this story apart is the depth of characters. They are fully developed, likable (or hatable as it were), and their interactions are realistic. I'm looking forward to the sequel.
