Thomin, the dwarven deity, pushed his people into a war against the kobolds. Then he left. Abandoned to their fate, they fought on. Just as they thought that the fighting was over, the enemy came back. Only a few dwarven warriors were trained to battle the lizard humanoids known as kobolds. The specialists are led by Rulag Gridatix. A New Hero is the first installment of an epic fantasy series.
