A foul-mouthed warrior with a sword almost too big to be used. A halfbreed former prostitute with a secret power flowing through her veins. A wizard who wants to harvest and use that power. A mysterious chef who has never lost a fight. An innocent maid yearning for adventure. A powerful queen looking to secure her bloodline. A prince that wants nothing to do with his mother's plans. The kingdom of Kelgrond is in dire trouble and these are the dwarves tightly wrapped up in the events that will either lead to the downfall of their people or to their redemption and rebirth.
