The dwarven saga begins…

Roskin, heir to the throne of a remote, peaceful kingdom of dwarves, craves excitement and adventure. Outside his own kingdom, in search of fortune and glory, he finds a much different world, one divided by racial strife and overrun by war. The orcs to the south want to conquer all dwarves and sell them as slaves. The humans to the east want to control the world's resources. 

Caught in the middle, Roskin finds himself chased by slave traders and soldiers alike as he discovers that friendship is the best fortune of all. Just when he thinks he has triumphed, an act of betrayal sends him into bondage. His only hope of escape is the faltering courage of a disgraced warrior whose best days are behind him...

Fans are saying


Wonderful Book, Exciting Adventure

This book instantly became one of my favorites. The suspense builds slowly at first, but once it reaches its boiling point, the action never lets up.

Anyone who loves fantasy will love it, and I think the writing is strong enough that even people who don't consider themselves fantasy readers will enjoy the story. I can't wait to see more from this exciting new writer.



No sparkling vampires. 
No deviant sex addicts. 
Just INCREDIBLE fiction!

The Brotherhood of Dwarves by D.A. Adams is one of the best books you will ever read. It is a fantasy-action/adventure focusing on Roskin - a dwarf - and his trials & adventures.

He delivers a fresh, rich dive into a fantastic world that he crafts in such a meticulous manner that you can see, feel, hear and even smell the world he has created. That being said, he doesn't get so bogged down in detailing the environment that he neglects the important things: THE CHARACTERS!

Even though he paints such a vivid picture of this fantastic realm, make no mistake about it, this is a character-driven story. Adams doesn't box up his character with a general overview of their physical appearance and a stereotypical take on what they're "like". He weaves a description so spot-on that you feel like you are longer reading about characters in a book, but people you know!

By the end of the book you will find you've grown attached to these characters. You're pulling for them, agonizing for them...wanting them to succeed.

To top it off, this phenomenal book can be enjoyed by the whole family. You'll find no profanity, lurid sex scenes or material you wouldn't feel comfortable sharing with anyone you know. If you think writing has to have those sordid, pulp-like elements to be interesting, I challenge you to read this book and you'll walk away knowing that's not true.



Author Bio

D.A. Adams


D.A. Adams was born in Florida but was raised in East Tennessee. He received a Master of Arts in Writing from the University of Memphis in 1999 and has taught college English for over a decade. 

His first novel, The Brotherhood of Dwarves, was released in 2005 and has been described as a solid, honest work about camaraderie, bravery, and sacrifice, a very personal journey, more interested in the ways that a person is changed by life's events than in epic battles and high magic. 

In 2008, the sequel, Red Sky at Dawn, was released to the exaltation that this novel thunders along, at times with dizzying speed. The action is visceral and imaginative without being gratuitous. Book three, The Fall of Dorkhun, came out in 2011, followed by book four, Between Dark and Light, in 2012. 

In terms of writing style, Adams exhibits an effortless narrative voice and a masterful balance between richly detailed descriptions and tightly worded minimalism. The pacing of his stories is breathtaking, with relentless action and captivating plot twists that keep readers riveted page after page. But his true talent as a writer lies in character development. Readers find themselves empathizing with, fearing for, and cheering on the characters as they overcome their personal shortcomings and grow as fully rendered individuals. 

Adams is also the father of two wonderful sons and, despite his professional accomplishments, maintains that they are his greatest achievement in life. He resides in East Tennessee.
