The Siege of the Small World
The History of the Small World Book 1
by Dr. Gerhard Plenert
The Southern Plains became dependent on trade with the North Groves. Each had their own areas of expertise and each had come to rely on the other for their survival. But for some unknown reason this vital trade came to an abrupt halt. The Dwarfs no longer came to the south to trade. Most believed the Dwarfs of the north couldn’t be trusted. Were they trying to starve out the south? Were they trying to increase the price for their goods? Where were they? What game were they playing? You’ll need to read more than the glimpse provided to you on Amazon to learn the answers. This is a beautifully illustrated novel that is “clean” from start-to-finish while also intriguing and genuinely fantasy mystical!
3 out of 5
The Siege of the Small World is imaginative. Dwarves, elves, goblins and many more populate the Small World. (The big world, of course being filled with humans). I enjoyed learning about the world and it’s inhabitants. The story is a fun way to spend a few hours.
