The Dwarves are back! Germany's Number One bestselling author returns to his best-loved series.
After decades of occupation by the alfar, the dark elves have been defeated and peace has finally been declared.
But the nations still distrust each other, and when a child is found in the Grey Mountains who speaks the language of the alfar, the dwarves believe this little girl heralds a new threat. And they will be right - just not in the way they thought.
Under the orders of Ireheart, now High King of the dwarves, a small delegation is sent to search for Tungdil Goldhand, the true High King, who many believe dead. Against all odds, Tungdil has survived his mission to the terrifying realm of Phondrason. But is he truly the legendary hero of the dwarves, or an impostor at the heart of a deeper conspiracy?
And does he realise that the fiends from Phondrason themselves aren't far behind . . . ?
The action never lets up in this next exciting story in the saga of the dwarves and the alfar!

Markus Heitz trained to be a teacher after studying history and German literature, then going on to an MA in History. He spent several years as a journalist, writing in his free time, before the runaway success of The Dwarves allowed him to give up the day job. His debut epic fantasy novel, Schatten uber Ulldart (Shadows over Ulldart) was the first of many of his books to win the Deutscher Phantastik Preis (Germany's premier literary award for fantasy) in 2003. Since then he has frequently topped the bestseller charts, and his Number One bestselling Dwarves and Aelfar series have earned him a place among Germany's most successful fantasy authors. The DOORS series, where each book follows the adventurers as they choose a different door, have earned him a whole new audience as he plays with fantasy, thriller and mystery tropes to keep the reader always interested. He currently lives in Saarland, in Germany.
