Many people are extremely hateful towards this series as it is clearly a 'rip-off' of Tolkien. However, I found this series very enjoyable. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings was certainly a magnificent series, but it did have many many long drawn out battle scenes. McKiernan's novels, on the other hand, are significantly less focused on battles. There's still plenty of action and battle, but I found the series to be much faster paced and attention keeping. I love McKiernan's take on Tolkien's hobbits. The Warrows are not just simple, helpless characters. They are skilled with the bow and hunting techniques. Overall, I found this series to be extremely enjoyable. I for one am a huge fan of the Iron Tower Trilogy, and the Silver Call Duology. ( )

ever wonder what dwarves do? As much as this is a cutout Tolkien wannabe, I still found it very interesting. Analogous to the dwarves taking back the Mines of Moriah. Extremely slowpaced, ends with the main army arriving at the Dusk Door. But I rather enjoyed it. Just detailed, very lulling. ( )

Trek to Kraggen-Cor is a generic fantasy novel that sets up the plot for the second book of the duology, The Brega Path. The book is incredibly dull, and hardly sparks much interest or evokes any emotions, although it's worth reading if you have any interest in the second book. ( )

Two hundred years after Dark Lord's defeat by the brave alliance of Warrow, human, Dwarf and Elf, evil is again stirring, and man and Dwarf must turn to the small but stalwart Warrows for aid. And so it is the Peregrin Fairhill and Cotton buckleburr, keepers of the Silver Horn, find themselves marching with the Dwarf King at the head of the army. They are pledged to lead the way along the forgotten path to Kraggen-Cor which is now home to all creatures of evil that remain in Mithgar. Will they be leading their allies to glorious victory-or doom?… (more)
