The halls of Aizen Krahl have known the hymns of battle since the first stone was carved. This newly-hewn fortress is the only defense between Taltos and the monsters of Monglash. King Thorgram Grimsteel knows that his people must be strong, like the foundations of the very mountains themselves, or they will fall. The dwarves have fought to build the citadel and will fight to defend it, for their new home is not just a cave in the hills, but the bastion of freedom that guards the civilized lands from evils they cannot face. King Thorgram will take the fight to his enemies and ensure the legacy of his heirs.
