The Fall of Dorkhun Reviews
This novel is the third in a series and, while it would be fine to read it on its own, readers would be well served to start at the beginning. I say this having read book four before book three—I enjoyed it, but I’d have enjoyed it more if I’d known where it was coming from.The Fall of Dorkun fills in the backstories of many beloved characters from earlier books, adding plenty of depth to the series and strengthening the purpose to the action. There’s a compelling consistency to it all—societies beautifully wrought, and characters convincingly portrayed as products of their nature and history. Expressions appropriate to race and age make the world and its characters real. A wise dwarf is described as having “a good beard.” Even hand gestures fit the image. And the viewpoints are consistently convincing.By the end of this tale Roskin has come full circle, teenager to man, and the world is poised on the brink of further destruction. Readers will eagerly reach for the next book. And me, I’m waiting for book 5.Disclosure: I won some free ebooks and chose this one because I’d already read and enjoyed books 1 and 4.
The Fall of Dorkun by D. A. AdamsThis is the third installment of the Brotherhood of Dwarves series. The main storyline in this segment is the return of Roskind to home. There are many side stories in the segment as well. Frankly, I think that books 1 and two should be read prior to reading this.I found the book very hard to follow. It was one of those stories that might have been far more entertaining if you understood what was going on. There was just entirely too much back story missing. The characters were somewhat superficial, but I suspect that that was mainly due to not knowing their back story.I liked the book but I think I would've liked it a lot if I had read the previous two books.
This is the third book in the series.If you really want to enjoy the book you should definitely read the two previous books.The main story continues with the return home of Roskin and the impact of his return. Beside that we follow the story of his compagnions and the history of one of them is revealed.This book is the perfect prelude for forthcoming events in the world of the brotherhood of dwarves.
The adventure continuesI was thoroughly entertained by this book. This book continues the saga of Roskin and his companions but it branches off from there. We get to know a lot of the backstory of some of the characters which was a nice to learn. The fast paced writing of the author allows the story move along quickly; before you know it is done!
Intrigue and guile, plots and alliances, and really good fun. More dwarf shenanigans and with added elements of political strife, changing kings, and bloody war.
