Mabel Goldenaxe just doesn’t fit in with the other girl dwarves—and she likes it that way.
To please her father, and encouraged by her older brothers, she goes to work in the emerald mines. Still, she dreams of a better life—and becoming Gilliam’s top axe-throwing champion just might be her ticket out. Mabel is torn between her love of the sport—and her love for the elf Aramis. But loving an elf is forbidden.
Dealing with her overbearing family, jealous friends, and deep family secrets, Mabel will have to summon all her strength to conquer her fears and become her own dwarf—lovelorn or otherwise.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Given To Me For An Honest Review Mabel the Lovelorn Dwarf (Ballard of Mabel Goldenaxe Book 1) by Sherry Peters is her first YA novel. It is a fantasy and it is really a fun one to read. This book is one that is a real page turner. You won't stop reading it until you are finished reading, It is about Mabel who is a dwarf. She doesn't quite fit in with others where she lives. She experiences a lot of joy but pain as well. Mabel lives in a world of social pressures, prejudice and expectations much like those in our world. When you get to the end of the book, you are going to say "What"? Cliffhanger ..... So like myself and others you'll have to wait for the next book to find out more about Mabel and her search to discover more about herself. I gave this book 5 stars but it deserves more. I look forward to more from Sherry Peters.
