Publisher's Summary

Magic and peril under the Earth...
Deep beneath the mountain fortress of Skullcap, legend has it, are the remains of the dark wizard Fistandantilus and the path to the gates of the dwarven kingdom of Thorbardin. Buried somewhere along that perilous path is the magical helm of Grallen, son of King Duncan, tragic hero of the Dwarfgate War. The finder of Grallen's helm, it is prophesized, will be rewarded and honored by a united Thorbardin - but he will also open the gates of the realm to fresh horror and chaos.
In The Gates of Thorbardin, Dan Parkinson, author of Starsong, continues the history of the dwarves of Krynn in the tradition of Nancy Varian Berberick's best-selling Dragonlance novel, Stormblade.

Excellent DL novel

Great story and narrator. The narrator, Topol, is among my favorites in the DL series. Has excellent range, tone and pronunciation. He is also consistent across all his readings. There were a couple oddities...like Kalonda...wtf? A powerful female commander, who sounds like a sniveling Veruca Salt-esque voice . But he has certainly earned a mulligan! As for the story...amazing work by the author. Although the story thoroughly conflicts with other novels that cover this place and time (Dragons of the Dwarven Depths), this story along Storm Blade blow DDD away with characters, story and relevance. my one beef is the last two chapters...they fell completely flat. It's almost as if the deadline was approaching and the author had to wrap it up fast. Disappointing, but the overall story was well worth it. I am a fan of all Mr Parkinson's books.
