Roskin, heir to the throne of a remote, peaceful kingdom of dwarves, craves excitement and adventure. Outside his own kingdom, in search of fortune and glory, he finds a much different world, one divided by racial strife and overrun by war. The orcs to the south want to conquer all dwarves and sell them as slaves. The humans to the east want to control the world's resources. Caught in the middle, Roskin finds himself chased by slave traders and soldiers alike as he discovers that friendship is the best fortune of all. Just when he thinks he has triumphed, an act of betrayal sends him into bondage. His only hope of escape is the faltering courage of a disgraced warrior whose best days are behind him.





Review: 

The Brotherhood of Dwarves is a pretty fast paced read full of adventure.  This book is perfect for young adults to read seeing as there isn't anything that a young adult shouldn't read.  I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read the second story in this series.  

I really enjoyed reading this book mainly because as a reader  we get to see the main character growing throughout the whole story.  He's not perfect, he learns from his mistakes and moves on.   I also really enjoyed all the different characters in this book as well.  There are plenty of Dwarves, yes and other types of characters, like elves .  Another thing I greatly enjoyed was the details that are jam packed in this book.  I love all the history about the lands in this story.  The languages between the characters as well.  I've never read a story about a half dwarf half elf before and I really enjoyed the details and seeing how that was intertwined in the story.  I also really loved seeing him get knocked down a few pegs so to say.   I love a good book where the main characters are flawed in some way and getting to read about them being put in their place is great.  This book did not disappoint on that detail!!

My only complaint about this book would really  have to be there is no map!  I would really love to see a map for this book and get to see the lands how the author sees them.  Maps in Fantasy books help me to picture it all even more in my head.  Its one thing I love about Fantasy books.  

The Brotherhood of Dwarves is a well written and has a great plot.  It  is a great first part of this story and I for one can't wait to read more about Roskin and get to know more characters. I can't wait to see what other adventures Roskin and the other characters can get into.
