Story: this book is a continuation of Throne of fire… if  i write anymore i will ruin the end of Throne of fire… i can say this though… my favorite character has to be Bes, the dwarf god. He is short, hairy, and when he is in battle he wears speedos (with written DWARF PRIDE along his backside) and screams BOO!!! at enemies. He is funny and  he was a popular god between the people.
