Overview

The dwarves have gone!

Thousands have been slaughtered in the blood-drenched streets of their ravine city by a demonic axe in the hands of one of their own.

The survivors have fled beyond the mountains, heading into a realm haunted by the nightmares of a twisted god.

When Nils Fargin, son of an underworld boss, is hired to find them, he travels with his client to seek the advice of a lowlife mage. With what he learns, he should have asked for more money.

The trail leads them to the domain of the terrifying Ant-Man, who is rumored to eat the flesh of anyone refusing to pay his toll.

And as if that wasn't enough, it turns out Nils's client is none other than the Nameless Dwarf, better known to his kind as the Ravine Butcher.

The Nameless Dwarf is an epic tale of remorse and redemption that pits a whiskerless thief, a guilt-driven assassin, a consumptive wizard, and an amnesiac dwarf against the worst imaginings of a craven mind.

But the companions bring troubles of their own, not least of which is an ancient grimoire that leads them inexorably towards a forest of tar and an evil that threatens the existence of an entire race.

The last hope of the dwarves comes from the unlikeliest of sources: a mythical city beneath the waves, an axe from the age of heroes, and the Nameless Dwarf, in whose veins flows the blood of legends.

The Nameless Dwarf: The Complete Chronicles contains all five books of the Chronicles of the Nameless Dwarf:

The Ant-Man of Malfen
The Axe of the Dwarf Lords
The Scout and the Serpent
The Ebon Staff
Bane of the Liche Lord

About D.P. Prior

I was born in the South East of England in the late sixties, just in time to get a good sniff at the Summer of Love.

I spent most of my childhood immersed in fantasy and SF novels as well as Marvel comics. I also had an unhealthy obsession with D&D and was, for a long time, a member of the rather dodgy wargaming society at the Archery recreation ground.

I founded and moderated the Mysticism Unbound discussion group to help explore some of the themes for my postgraduate research into Antonin Artaud and the Theatre of Cruelty. Although the group eventually closed it has subsequently been resurrected twice and is currently flourishing on Facebook.

Following my return from Australia I trained to become a personal trainer and set up my own gym (Fitness Instruction for Strength and Health). I specialized in resistance training and worked exclusively with private clients until I sold the gym.

I began to edit professionally in 2009 during a trip to Chicago and this developed into a flourishing business (Homunculus Editing Services).

Since 2011 I have been a full-time author and editor.

I am married to Paula and have two children, Theo and Cordelia.

My chief influences as a writer are: David Gemmell, R.E. Howard, Lin Carter, L. Sprague de Camp, Stephen Donaldson, Joe Abercrombie, and Mary Doria Russell.

    This book is a shogging good time!!!  The characters really come

    This book is a shogging good time!!!  The characters really come alive.  Is it sad that my second favorite character was the bad guy.  I also like the idea that the heroes were flawed and gritty.  It made it seem more like real life.  Buy this book.  You'll really like it!  I did!!!

    The Nameless Dwarf is the Omnibus collection of all five books i

    The Nameless Dwarf is the Omnibus collection of all five books in the series.  I was lucky enough to get reviewer copies of all of them as they came out and was very excited to see that he decided to release a single volume collection with some epic cover art.  

    I would rate the collection a 4.5, but since there are no half stars it gets rounded up.  The stories really get stronger as you progress through them making it so I have no problem with the 5 star ranking at all.  

    This is especially a great series to read if you are familiar with the Shader series by D.P.  There are some shared characters and back story that really enriched the other books for me.  

    If you are a fan of action packed epic fantasy this is a great collection for you to pick up.
