October brings The Revenge of the Dwarves from Orbit
Hold your breath for The Revenge of the Dwarves, the next thrilling instalment in his spectacular epic from international bestselling author Markus Heitz, out in October from Orbit Books.
For countless millennia, no man or beast has ever succeeded in breaching the stone gateway into Girdlegard. Until now… Abandoned as a child, Tungdil the blacksmith is the only dwarf in a kingdom of men.
But when he is sent out into the world to deliver a message and reacquaint himself with his people, the young foundling finds himself thrust into a battle for which he has not been trained. Not only his own safety, but the life of every man, woman and child in Girdlegard depends upon his ability to embrace his heritage.
Although he has many unanswered questions, Tungdil is certain of one thing: no matter where he was raised, he is a true dwarf. And no one has ever questioned the courage of the Dwarves.
Life has not been easy for battle-weary Tungdil. But this heroic warrior can’t rest yet, as he must now face the most formidable enemy the kingdom has ever encountered.
A new evil is terrorising the land of Girdlegard. Monstrous hybrid creatures are on the rampage, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake. They are out to steal an artefact which is vital for the kingdom’s defence, and whoever holds it could control the world.
With the existence of the dwarves under threat, Tungdil must resort to his trusty double axe and risk everything he knows to save his country from annihilation . . .
