Into the Forge

The Great War of the… Little Round Thing 


So this is the epic war that Dennis McKiernan’s other books constantly either build up to or build away from: The Great War of the Ban… which is kind of a silly name because the aforementioned Ban only appears AFTER the war is over. It’s like calling World War I the War of The Treaty Of Versailles.

Anyway, this duology feels like McKiernan had plotted out one book, but his publisher said, “Hey, let’s turn this into a duology.” So we get endless padding and filler: halfling love affairs, pervert elves, and endless traveling traveling traveling.
