    1. Bookwraiths

      Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths Reviews The Ant-Man of Malfen (Chronicles of the Nameless Dwarf #1) is a novella that doesn’t put on any pretensions about what it is. Nope, this is a sword and sorcery extravaganza that throws you right into the action, casts you adrift in a complex world, beguiles you with twists and turns, makes you chuckle with dark humor, and never lets you get off its entertaining roller coaster ride. This story is gritty! It’s blood-soaked! Yet, somehow, it is also i [...]

      A Dwarf With No Name (Chronicles of the Nameless Dwarf #1) or The Ant-Man of Malfen by D.P. Prior has the Nameless dwarf traveling to his fellow dwarves but along the way he encounters lots of trouble. This book he battles ant men. Doesn't sound scary? Wait til you read about them! Great action, battles, and plot. Great characters and dialogue. Getting to feel like I know these characters and traveling along with them but I will let them fight, lol.

    3. Chris Salch

      Very well written! The world of the Nameless dwarf has a great deal of depth and richness to it. Reading through this story has made me want to go hunt down other books in the Nameless Dwarf series just to explore the world Prior has put together. The forward also struck a cord with me as I've done a bit of role playing on in the past and often wondered about writing something based on an old character. One thing I will say for Prior, he is very good at describing combat and his Nameless dwarf d [...]

      StoriWith tongue firmly planted in cheek, the author starts off with a bang and never looks back. This is one of a series of stories about a Nameless Dwarf and you cant help but fall in love with him. The characterization of the dwarf and his companions is lush and complex, the wordsmithing beautifully targeted to achieve the proper feel and tone for each sentence, paragraph and scene. The plot is tight, the pacing never lets up and the vocabulary is spot on for each circumstance. There is humor [...]

    5. Thomas Edmund

      Not being familiar with the world, I wasn't too sure what I was going to get myself into with this novella. Prior provides a helpful foreword introducing Nameless - a dwarf supertank whose origins lie in the early role-playing games of this author's youth.Its probably a no-brainer to point out this is fantasy adventure at its most pure. In a short novella Prior packs in a massiva amount of world-building and history, and despite the actual story being fairly basic (hey it is a novella after all) [...]

      I give this four stars for two reasons. The first is that this is too short and the nameless dwarf is awesome. Really though, I gave it four because of all the names and places in it. By that I mean I felt a little bogged down with all of them. Not necessarily in a bad way, and there is a glossary in the back, it was just kind of hard to keep up. Otherwise this was really good and I am going to find more of this nameless dwarf.

    7. Doug Ward

      I really liked this book!!!  Nameless is an intriguing character. It is del edited. If you like fantasy give this one a try.  WARNING!!!  I am a little hooked so I am off right now to buy the next in the series. The only con I can find is that I really wish it was just a longer novel. I tend to burn out early on serials. I have to add a new note. I just purchased THE NAMELESS DWARF which contains all the books. Now I don't have to fear the burnout. So happy now!!!!!

    8. Scott Collins

      Pretty solid fantasy read in my opinion. There's a lot of back story that I'd like clarity on, but as a quick jump into the action to hook me into the story, great job. I like the twists in the story, the dark past of Nameless (and I love that others call him Nameless). It's gritty, it's exciting, it's funny. I'd recommend it for the teen and up set.

    9. Charles

      Great novellaThis is a wonderful and fast read about a dwarf with no name. This is your basic fantasy about a dwarf on a mission and the people that he meets. Great beginning to what I hope to be an enjoyable series.

    10. Moses Siregar III

      Great character (the nameless dwarf), great language skills from the author, great fantasy world-building. This is worth a read, and it seems to be listed for free now.

    11. Sam Gamgee

      Given to me as a gift. Didn't care for the narrator's voice at the start, but then he switches voice from close to one character's mind and moves on. Found the book amusing and interesting and will probably read the next eventually. It's no Lord of the rings, Narnia, Kingkiller Chronicles, Wheel of Time, Dune, or Potter. But it's a quick, and easy fantasy read. It ends unfinished and does not stand alone.

    12. Michael Kelly

      A fairly short novella, first in 'The Chronicles of the Nameless Dwarf', which does a good job of introducing its main character and supporting cast in a solid but straightforward fantasy yarn.The Dwarf is nameless as his name was stripped from him by his own people for his behaviour. He further made the social faux pas of slaughtering many of them while possessed by a cursed axe. The remaining Dwarfs fled in the most dangerous direction possible. Now Nameless has set out - freed from the curse [...]

    13. Christopher Ainsworth

      A decent start to a series, likeable characters, contant looming or direct peril. Place names tend to scramble the brain somewhat with names like "Qippoth" and others that have already skipped my brain due to their oddess, does make it a bit a problem getting the lay of the land. A story of a hero (possibly) with a dark past not even he knows on a quest of atonement, battling not onlythe forces arrayed against him but his own personal demons. Gritty and grim with well written fight scenes, I'll [...]

    14. Catherine Vickers

      Great little story, though too much going on for a small book, so I got a little confused at times. A little on the gruesome side, but only a wee bit. Characters come together in their own little quests, for a big finale. Great characters portraying as I liked them all. Big baddie is bit of a monster, but he's not in it much. Loved the ending. It just seemed right though it also seemed a little rushed. If you love dwarves, as I do, then this story is for you.

    15. Sue

      I had a somewhat difficult time with the language of this book to begin with, but as I read along it seemed to get a little easier. Had I already read The Lord of the Rings trilogy, it might have been a little easier. Of course, the language (names of characters and places specifically) would be different in both books, but it does take a little practice to get used to those things. Otherwise, it was all right. I bought this as a package, so I will continue on with the others in the series.

    16. Seth Tucker

      A great start. This is a very quick read but is well worth it. A sword in sorcery piece that hints at greater mysteries yet to come. A fun read for those who like their fantasy not too heavy.

    17. J

      Grimy.The setting, the characters, the dialogue, and the narrative. It's grimy.Not necessarily in a bad way. It's done that way on purpose and quite well.It feels like an episode out of the sort of cheesy over the top action series that one might enjoy to chuckle at on occasion when they are flipping through channels in search of some raucous destruction.There is very little in the way of thematic development and so there really is no message or greater meaning to find. It's just fun--a gore-lad [...]

      Nameless is a manic-depressive pariah whose past is littered with atrocities. With an almost elemental ferocity and a gift for violence, Nameless alternates between bouts of crippling depression and boisterous episodes of elation, which are usually brought on by the prospect of a good fight. He also has an eye for the women - particularly those under four feet tall.This story also introduces Silas Thrall, a student of the mantic arts with a dark secret that consumes him more each day; and Nils F [...]

      Since I read all of these back-to-back I’m going to just do one review for all of the books. This series felt like the author put all every conceivable science fiction, fantasy and horror troupe into a bag and just started pulling stuff out. Lets see an um Dwarf, next an Ant-Man, zombies, a cyclops, oh and here’s a Biblical reference to Jonah. Then lets also have a changeling, a novice wizard and a helpless but good-hearted boy. Out of a blender and onto the pages of your Kindle. Entertainin [...]

    20. G L Meisner

      This book was boring. I could hardly finish it. Prior spent far to much time describing the world and far to little on character development or action. Hell the title should have been a clue, he renamed it Nameless Dwarf Book 1: The Dwarf With No Name should have seen the horrible pacing and lack of action coming a mile away. But like a sucker I tried it any way.Don't make my mistake.

    21. Shawn Fairweather

      Pretty generic on most fronts, a plus because it was free however. The story is a very fast novella to read which gave the impression that it was taken out of a larger piece rather than being stand alone. I would have prefered a little more development rather than racing through the story.

    22. Matthew

      Fast, and funit is a good fun and fast read. I enjoyed how we are taken on a journey. I could not put it down and I will be reading the whole series

    23. Arthur

      Great Awesome novella about a crazy dwarf and his colleagues. The author draws you into a great story. I just could not stop reading it.
