Annals of the Nameless Dwarf

The age of glory is on the horizon and Carnac Thayn must make a difficult choice — one that will either save his people or condemn them. Who can be trusted in a land of magic and deceit?


“Prior weaves a fully realized world in this rich fantasy.” (Kirkus Reviews)


"A beautifully written and engrossing masterwork!" (Mitchell Hogan)


Fantasy Faction semifinalist for the SPFBO 2018


A child is born in the shadows of the ravine city, a child who will end the self-imposed exile of the dwarves and usher in a new age of glory.


Years later, Ravine Guard Carnac Thayn discovers a break-in at the Scriptorium. A dwarf has been murdered and a book stolen, but the ruling council do nothing.


Then, when Carn is called to investigate thuds and crashes from the mines, old horror rises from the deep, and the city is threatened with slaughter.


Rumors begin to circulate about a mythical axe said to be lost below the earth, an axe wielded by the dwarf lords of old that might just be the last hope of a race marked to die.


But deception is rife, and unseen forces manipulate all paths to the future.It is a pivotal moment for the dwarves, and Carn must make a choice that will either save or damn his people.


Blood will flow in rivers through the ravine.


Friends will become foes.


A name will be forgotten.


And a hero will rise.

About the author

Internationally bestselling and award winning author D.P. Prior excels in fast-paced, high stakes epic fantasy adventure stories in which good ultimately triumphs, but always at a cost.Taking familiar fantasy tropes as a point of departure, Prior expands upon them to explore friendship, betrayal, loyalty and heroism in worlds where evil is an ever-present reality, magic is both a curse and a blessing, and characters are tempered in battle.
