About the Author

Internationally bestselling and award winning author D.P. Prior excels in fast-paced, high stakes epic fantasy adventure stories in which good ultimately triumphs, but always at a cost. Taking familiar fantasy tropes as a point of departure, Prior expands upon them to explore friendship, betrayal, loyalty and heroism in worlds where evil is an ever-present reality, magic is both a curse and a blessing, and characters are tempered in battle. Winner of best fantasy novel 2012 (The Nameless Dwarf: The Complete Chronicles) Fantasy Faction semifinalist for the SPFBO 2018 (Ravine of Blood and Shadow) Website: www.dpprior.com Twitter: @NamelessDwarf Facebook: www.facebook.com/dpprior

Reviews

"Prior weaves a fully realized world in this rich fantasy, from history, political structure, and family life to work, food, drinking (lots of drinking), and romance." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Carnifex is a masterpiece of sword and sorcery storytelling. A visceral yet thoughtful epic." -- Bookwraiths Reviews

"Gritty, tense, and brutally tragic. High quality storytelling with great characters and a relentless plot." -- Mitchell Hogan, author of A Crucible of Souls and Aurealis Award winner.

"One thing that impressed me right from the beginning were the fight scenes. Nameless is implacable, but not invulnerable, and the scenes give a good sense of how tough and strong he is, while never descending into cartoonish invincibility. The fights are well-written, clear and concise without skimping on detail or ending anticlimactically." -- Black Gate Magazine

"And holy shit... the battle scenes. THE BATTLE SCENES!!! People don't actually realise how hard it is to write a good battle scene, but Prior makes it look easy. They are gripping, violent, and brilliantly choreographed." -- Smash Dragons

"A Fantasy Adventure of remarkable scope, populated by many memorable characters. Maybe D. P. Prior's finest work to date." -- Ray Nicholson (Amazon Top 1000 reviewer)

"Whenever I have high praise for a book, I usually like to find at least one aspect of the writing to challenge, but this one's got me stumped. I guess I could complain that it ended all too soon, but then there are three other volumes to enjoy..." -- Laurence Scotford

"It's not often I'm left speechless but this was one of those times. WOW!!" -- Ebookwyrm

"I'm sure it will not be long before we see this, the most unique of dwarves on the big screen!" -- Scott Morrison

"D.P. Prior continues to exceed my expectations." -- Frederick H.

"Prior brings his characters to life, and gives the reader a full pallet of deep, epic fantasy to savor." -- @DahgMahn

"Plenty of spells. And loads of arse kicking!" -- Travis Shore

"The plot is really quite masterful." -- Momma Says Read

"This book is a shogging good time!!! The characters really come alive." -- Doug Ward

"As usual with this author his characterisation is excellent and he can really bring a landscape to life." -- PhotonQyv
