Just when you thought there wouldn't be much more to write about in the series with seemingly all the beasts and monsters vanquished, the author is able to continue the story by incorporating foes from places you would least expect.

What I enjoyed most about this book is the problems Tungdil is facing at this point in the series, reminding the reader that he is very much alive and has very complicated internal problems, and that he is not just a two dimensional boastful hero. These problems are why I can relate and sympathize with Tungdil so well.

The book contains a wonderful attention to detail to the new monstrosities encountered, and even leaves you wondering who the true enemy is until the end. With new friends and the return of some old ones, you will never know what will happen next.

I have really enjoyed this series and am now on the fourth and final book and am reading it slowly as I don't want the story to end.

While there are similarities to Lord of the Rings of course, dwarves, humans, elves, warriors, magic, orcs, trolls, etc... the Dwarves series is even more to my liking (not saying I didn't like LoTR, after all I've read he series along with the Hobbit three times) but the Dwarves series is perhaps more fun and action oriented to read while not having the depth.

This third book suffers a bit from translation (the original language of these books is German) which lead to me having to re-read things a few times to figure out what was meant but that's fine with me as it really didn't bother me.

If you like "Middle Earth" type stories, action oriented fantascy, LoTR, or have ever played game like World of Warcraft, EverQuest, or like myself feel that it is finally time for Dwarves to get their just due after being handled as "comic relief" in too many other story lines, I would strongly recommend The Dwarves series.

I absolutely love this series, and this latest installment has been just as enjoyable as the previous titles in the series! It looks like there'll be another of these to come...I simply can't wait! If you're into fantasy...especially good, epic fantasy with great characters...this series is for you friends! Though not quite as epic as say The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, these are still great workings for any fantasy lover. Out of what I have read or am reading, I would rank it up with the likes of Inheritance Cycle 4-Book Hard Cover Boxed Set (Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr, Inheritance) and The Sword of Shannara as far as enjoyability.

I have read all four of the books in this series. I read them one after another because I couldn't put them down! I love fantasy books (obviously) and this series is at the top of my favorite list. The author hits you with adventure and suspense time after time. There are twists and turns to satisfy any fantasy addict (like me) and they are continuous. His main charaters are, of course, Dwarves and what heroic, lovable, dangerous characters they are! The women are as ferocious as the men are when the situation calls for it. The stories of their lives, their loyalty to their kingdom and each other, their hatred of certain enemies, the heroic deeds they perform weave into an incredible tale and bring the race of dwarves to the successful salvation of the kingdom. Mr. Weitz is an incredible author in my humble opinion. Although he has stated in no uncertain terms that the saga of the dwarves is finished, I look forward to reading more of his writings. My only criticism is the fact that there are a few editing errors in this book and the one that follows.

Format: Paperback
"The Revenge of the Dwarves" is the third installment in the series chronicling dwarf Tungdil Goldhand's adventures. Many of the prior experiences have impacted the characters in numerous ways, a couple with severe consequences. In addition to Tungdil, Boïndil, and Rodario, new and surprise characters provide excellent entertainment. Expect moderate political maneuvering, exceptional battles, and conflicted soul searching.

Extremely serious events happen to the protagonists, yet the shocking nemesis and the reasoning behind attacking Girdlegard will blindside anybody. The fascinating plotline thoroughly entertains despite the rare minor editing errors.

An enhanced map of the significant terrains and a more comprehensive appendix would have been useful.

I highly recommend the series to any fan of the fantasy genre.

Thank you.

The third in the series, this book is simply brilliant. Bought this one the moment I saw it on the shelf since I loved the first two. What initially appealed to me about this series is the fact that this one deals with main protogonists who are not human or elves. Dwarves who in most fantasy literature are a sidekick race are the focal race here. Of course elves and humans exist too and een the non dwarf characters are well developed. A must have for any fantasy lover, the series will keep you gripped and wanting for more. I hope Heitz continues to write more in this series.
Read them in this order: "The Dwarves", "The Wars of the Dwarves" & "The Revenge of the Dwarves". You cannot go wrong getting this set.
