Karras, who humans mistakenly call "Carrow," is not a typical Rughìr'thai'âch, "Earth-Born," or dwarf. In fact, in serving his family's shipping and trading business, he has taken on too many human ways in place of those of his people. No wonder that, in attempting to "barter" for marriage with the fiery and dour Skirra--"Sliver"--of the fallen family of Yêarclág, he has bungled the deal for years. Dismissed once more by her to salve his heart's wounds, this time those wounds get salted with the unwanted assistance of a blustery clan-kin--Fiáh'our, or the great "Hammer-Stag."

The old honored warrior has his own notion of what Karras needs. To Fiáh'our, honorable barter for love and marriage is akin to one battle after another. And only the way of their people's warriors can see Karras to victory... over himself, first of all.

May their people's eternal ancestors, the Bäynæ, watch over them--especially to keep them from each other's throats.

About "Tales from the world of the Noble Dead Saga"...

No knowledge of the Noble Dead Saga or related works is necessary to read and enjoy these stories. They are written for fantasy enthusiasts in general and not just our established readership. Readers new to this world can step into it through any of these short works.

Tales are organized into "collections" where all stories therein share a theme and/or premise. When one or more link together, subsequent stories will mention "sequel to..." on their covers to guide you. Even so, each is self-contained enough to be your first adventure into this world.

This one was pretty good. A bit longer than some of the other "Tales" which was nice. This one focused on the dwarves, with Karras being the main character. While I don't believe we have run into him before in the main novels, other characters in this one have shown up in the main novels. Some of the events of this one have also been hinted at in the main novels so it was nice to get some more background on them.
