The Iron Tower, a heart-pounding epic fantasy that twists and turns throughout—involving omens and ancient legends and dark forces and prophecies . . . and the return of a malevolent one. And as with any Dennis L. McKiernan story, prepare to laugh and weep and curse and shout for joy and suffer in silence and be captured by words and read till the early hours, even though school or work or other obligations must surely be waiting in the wings of morrow.
#1 – The Dark Tide
Tuck Underbank is a Warrow — think a hobbit with shoes and “large jewel-like eyes” — living in the peaceful Boskydells. When an unnaturally cold winter strikes and the evil Modru threatens the world, he and a number of his fellow Thornwalkers go to the High King’s aid. But a vast expanse of lightless blizzard called the Dimmendark (sounds bad, doesn’t it?) is spreading over the land, and Tuck soon finds that the “dark tide” is going to swamp them all. Despite the fact that they’re tiny and temperamental, the Warrows get included in the military forces. But the High King doesn’t have enough warriors to hold off the horde of slobbering monsters who are coming to attack. And the battle goes horribly wrong, separating the friends from one another and possibly dooming them all.
#2 – Shadows of Doom
The winter had begun.
At Gunnaring Gap, the valiant Riders of Valon began their charge. And though Challerain Keep lay in ruins and butchery had led to the capture of Princess Laurelin, heroes strode forth from the ranks of Men, Elves, Warrows and Dwarves to turn the tide of doom. And across the land ruled by unnatural dark, freedom flickered and burst into flame…
#3 – The Darkest Day
The destined hour has come….
It is the time foretold, when the Dark Liege Gyphon will return from exile to subdue all creation to his vile domination. In the Iron Tower, Modru works his magics to summon his implacable lord. And across Mithgar, the warriors of the kight are massing for their final assault on the Powers of Dark. Men, Elves, Dwarves and doughty warrows, their state is desperate but their courage is high. For if they fail, there comes the unending Darkest Day. If they succeed, all will see the dawn of a New Age of legend and glory…..The Darkest Day
