Publisher's Summary

The Hornblaris Mountains - home to the great Dwarven people - are a miraculous sight to behold, but beneath their towering peaks lie monstrous dangers. Carmen Delarosa, a travelling merchant's daughter, has lived within the mountains and even travelled their passages her entire life without issue. But when a drake appears along a routine trading route and slaughters an entire caravan, including her family, Carmen vows to take justice into her own hands. Alone, in the Deep Roads, and with only her wits to guide her, Carmen will attempt the impossible: to hunt, and kill, the Drake of Ehknac.

Carmen Delarosa is one determined Dwarf.

This is a fairly short but good story about a Dwarf maiden named Carmen Delarosa. The story starts with her and her family on their way back to their home from a trading trip when they are attacked by a Drake. Everyone but Carmen is killed. A year later, after stewing about what happened, and having the village elders push her to the breaking point, she determines to do something about the Drake that killed her family. She gets prepared, arming herself with her family mace, gathering supplies, and chasing any rumor of its wherabouts. After she talks to a dwarf that thinks he saw the drake, she goes seeking the Drake, and when she finds it, she discovers just what it takes to get revenge for her family, and the price she will need to pay.

Carmen is a really compelling character. The horror of what happened to her family and the treatment she received in her village could have broken her. Instead, she uses it as fuel to her revenge against the Drake. For a shorter story, the setting is well described, and you have an easy time picturing it in your head. The character intereactions are well plotted, and the action scenes are well described and plotted. The narration was decent, with each character having their own voice. All in all a good start to a series of stories.

Too short

Just when I thought I might be getting a feel for the characters it was over. And I wasn't even sure why.
The narrator did an excellent job with the different voices,, always does. Maybe book 2 will have more content,
This book was given to me free of charge, and I freely gave my unbiased review.
