''Dwarves'' is a series of fantasy novels (three books at the moment, four in the original German) by German author Markus Heitz. He strives to give us a new take on dwarf tropes, while at the same time managing to play them completely straight.

''Dwarves'' is a series of fantasy novels (three books at the moment, four in the original German) by German author Markus Heitz. He strives to give us a new take on dwarf tropes, while at the same time managing to play them completely straight.




In the second book ''The War of the Dwarves'' Girdlegard faces a new threat. Avatars of the evil god Tion have amassed their armies and prepare themselves for an invasion while the thirdlings have nefarious plans of their own.

By the time of the third book (around 5 years later) Tungdil has become an alcholic, drinking his sorrows away. Evil still exists, however, and it strikes back in full force as if to make Girdlegard pay for the 5 years of peace it got. Terrible death machines bring doom to the dwarves' tunnels, magical monstrosities threaten the fate of the land and it all but looks like the thirdlings are about to play their final and deadliest gambit.

The events of the fourth book take place around 250 years later and focus on [[spoiler: the return of Tungdil from out of the Black Abyss. Doubts arise on his true identity though, as to some dwarves he seems to have ComeBackWrong. Will they be able to save Girdlegard once more?]]



* AxCrazy: Boïndil.

to:

** Also [[spoiler: Tungdil]] in the third book. [[spoiler: Due to falling of a bridge with his toddler son and not being able to save him.]]
* AxCrazy: Boïndil. One of his sons seems to have inherited it as well.


Added DiffLines:

** Later books feature their own [[BigBad Big Bads]], but it can be argued that the demon that controlled Nudin is the BigBad of the series as a whole.

** In the third volume, owing to manipulation and misunderstanding, a Dwarf hothead arises who declares himself High King and launches a genocidal war against the Elves. By the time it is over only ''thirty-seven'' Elves are left alive.



* FinalSolution: the stated goal of the Avatars, and the ''eoil'' who drives them, in the second volume. She (the eoil) succeeds in slaughtering every single Dark Elf and Orc in Girdlegard - even those who are only half-alfar/orc..

The new and disputed high king of the Dwarfs doesn't help much, when he launches his genocide against the Elves in volume three.

* InferredHolocaust: the genocide of orcs and Alfar is only hinted at: one half-Alfar magic-user is seen to die screaming horribly, wreathed in fire. Expeditions to the orc and alfar kingdoms find only bones and ash, all that remains.
