Book Description

Books 1-3 of Chronicles of the Nameless Dwarf (the entire 5-book series is available as The Nameless Dwarf: The Complete Chronicles)

The Nameless Dwarf Omnibus contains the first three books of the highly acclaimed Chronicles of the Nameless Dwarf:

The Ant-Man of Malfen
The Axe of the Dwarf Lords
The Scout and the Serpent

Following the massacre of the dwarves in their ravine city, the Nameless Dwarf pursues the survivors to the brigand town of Malfen, where he learns they have crossed the mountains into the lands of nightmare. His only intention is to save his people from extinction, but he's the last person they'd want to find them.


“The Ant-Man of Malfen's story drew me in quickly, captivated me with its characters and kept me reading feverishly until the very end.” -- Media Man

“ … fantasy adventure at its most pure. In a short novella Prior packs in a massive amount of world-building and history.” -- T. Edmund Jenkin

“If you like Moorcock, Melville or Hobb, read this.” -- Kristan Dawkins

“All of the characters were skillfully drawn by the author so that they came off the page fully developed and ready for action.” -- Red Adept Reviews

“The Ant-Man of Malfen is steeped in the tradition of good old-fashioned swashbuckling fantasy, reminiscent of Robert E. Howard.” -- Valmore Daniels, author of Forbidden the Stars

“All authors have a tale to tell, but only a few can really tell a tale...and Derek Prior belongs in the latter category.” -- Ray Nicholson

5.0 out of 5 stars First half of a fantastic epic fantasy series February 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
"The Nameless Dwarf Omnibus" is the compilation of the first three books/novellas (The Ant-Man of Malfen, The Axe of the Dwarf Lords & The Scout and the Serpent) in Derek Prior's "Chronicles of the Nameless Dwarf" series. The story follows an amnesic, manic-depressive dwarven warrior aptly called "Nameless" and his companions Nils (a youthful and sometimes cowardly rogue), Silas (a mage walking a dark path) and Ilesa (a shapeshifting assassin) on their search for Nameless' dwarven ancestors who have fled into the shadowy Northern lands of Qlippoth. Nameless pursues his brethren in attempts to make amends for the past atrocities against his own race and save his race from eventual destruction. In the first three installments our group unlikely companions band together and begin their search for Nameless' remaining brethren. Here are my thoughts on The Nameless Dwarf Omnibus;

Pros

+ Unique and interesting characters which continuously evolve and gain more depth with each release. As I've mentioned in my individual reviews you'll find none of your do-gooder heroes here. The more you read the more you learn about each character's sordid pasts.

+ Plenty of action.

+ Extremely well written, which I've come to expect from Prior.

+ Extensive glossary detailing all people, places and things in the story.

+ Perfect amount of clever humour.

+ Detailed history makes you want to read all other stories taking place in the land of Malkuth.

Cons <contains SPOILERS>

- Short in length. It's over before you know it and you have to wait for your next fix!

- Real world references and names still draw me out of the fantasy setting of the story at times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Three outstanding Novellas under one cover. February 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
"The Nameless Dwarf Omnibus" (Chronicles of the Nameless Dwarf) is a compilation of three fantasy works by author D.P. Prior. This Kindle e-book trilogy was a 721 Kb download and sold for $2.99 at the time of writing this review.

The three novellas include in this omnibus are (in order)
1.)The Ant-Man of Malfen
2.)The Axe of the Dwarf Lords
3.)The Scout and the Serpent

SPOILERS

These short stories relate the adventures of Nameless (the name our Dwarf hero goes by, since losing some of his memory ) and his three companions. Nils, a guide and thief; Ilesa, a shapeshifter and assassin and finally Silas, an aspiring but down on his luck, mage.
The quest is a noble one, Nameless seeks his lost dwarf brethren... a group of kin for who he is most responsible for their disappearance.

END SPOILERS

Impressions:
1.) these are well written, intriguing stories of battles with zombies, wolf-men, goblins and some other menacing individuals/creatures who look to bring the quest to a grinding halt... often the edible kind of halt!

2.)) character development... more noticeable with each successive installment. And while battles provide the reader with lots of action, it's the character development that make this series stand out. And let's face it, no matter how good/great the story is, it's the characters that make it memorable.

3.) humor... loved the bantering, witty humor displayed between the varied personalities within the traveling group of heroes. Especially book I where, for me, there were a couple laugh-out-loud moments.

4.) map... an improved, more professional looking map of Malkuth where all the events in Book I occur.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Book is Incredibly Cool June 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
By The Bros on June 18, 2013

When Momma came downstairs brandishing The Nameless Dwarf I knew I HAD to have it. I was sucked in so fast. The author really knows how to push the envelope and describe the gore with enough detail that you feel like you're there or watching a movie, but pulls back right before it's too much.

The plot itself is really quite masterful and aside from the questing/looking for something aspect of the fantasy this story felt fresh! I know that if I were reading each individual book I would have had to go and get the next one right away. Don't fool around with one book at a time, just get the omnibus. I promise you are going to love this book.

The twists and turns that unfold are incredibly cool. The companions, all being complete opposites really play well off of each other and the authors depiction and development of their relationships is very rewarding as a reader. I loved all of them in their own right Ilesa was one of my favorites and I definitely found myself able to relate to Silas in a sort of unsettling way, but hey I am a teenager. If I can learn his lessons now, then I'm doing ok.

I have and totally will recommend this book to my friends so I recommend it to you! Like Momma would say "Read This Book!"
