Brilliant book, easy to get into. Klondaeg is a fiery dwarf monster hunter who, with the help of his double-headed axe, the Kings Rest, sets out to take on a pack of werewolf gnomes.

When he meets Dalvinus, Klondaeg decides to help him overcome a prophesy that means the end of his life. Dalvinus has a - to Klondaeg - unique way of getting things done.

Being abducted by extinct bird-people isn't high on Klondaeg's list of things to do, but when it happens, he has to choose whether to believe Princess Avia and help her, or let her brother kill a God.

Then Klondaeg dines with a (different) God, does it end in calamity for the entire dwarven race, or does it just end Klondaeg?

Klondaeg is such a fun read! Anyone who wants some wit, humor and fantasy (it's somewhat Munchkin-esque - very genre-conscious and self-mocking, but with the basis to pull it off). I read this and "Smite Me, Oh Dark One" and found much to laugh out loud about. Thomas' work is full of humor and adventure and well worth the price. "Smite Me Oh Dark One" had the fabulous bonus of being narrated by the "antagonist" of the universe that both books are set in. Readers who enjoyed it are sure to be pleased at Acerbus' return in "Klondeag". But there's plenty new to love, my favorite of which is the 'schizophrenic' and quite vocal enchanted axe! The pages without the axe (I'm not going to tell you why or how) were quite distressing, but Klondeag's bloodthirstiness and peculiar practicality (he does have a very simple philosophy after all) will keep readers amused while they wait for the conclusion of Klondaeg's epic quest to avenge the death of his parents. And you won't believe all the trouble ... um... epic adventures ... he finds along the way, or the way everything ties together - the Goddess Perpleksga would be proud. On that note, don't forget that the 'g' in Klondaeg is silent, and enjoy the ride! :)

Klondaeg the Monster Hunter is a dwarf, that carries King's Rest~his axe, all the while battling undead magma goat. Klondaeg believes his battle with undead magma goat was started by a gnome. Gnomes are not known to be friendly creatures and mostly keep to themselves. Klondaeg is asked to hunt a gnomelobo yet is warned that gnomelobos are dangerous. Klondaeg and Dalvinus work together well and knows the only plan Klondaeg subscribes to is crush them. Dalvinus respects Klondaeg yet wishes he would have more than one plan in his arensal. Dalvinus also talks with the Gods about Klondaeg with his mission to kill all of the monsters. Klondaeg was also hired by Princess Avia for a job. She also fights by Klondaeg side as well. Klondaeg offers up prayers to O'Plenty and Perpleksga before his next series of battles. Can Klondaeg stop the gnomelobo? Can Klondaeg help Princess Avia? Will Klondaeg continue fighting monsters? Your answers await you in Klondaeg the Monster Hunter.
