Publisher's Summary

For more than 1,000 years, the dwarves have hidden away from the world in their ravine city of Arx Gravis. Governed by an inflexible council whose sole aim is to avoid the errors of the past, the defining virtue of their society is that nothing should ever change. But when the Scriptorium is broken into, and Ravine Guard Carnifex Thane sees a homunculus fleeing the scene of the crime, events are set in motion that will ensure nothing will ever be the same again. Deception and death are coming to Arx Gravis. The riddles that preceded Carnifex's birth crystalize into a horrifying fate that inexorably closes in. But it is in blood that legends are born, and redemption is sometimes seeded in the gravest of sins. For Carnifex is destined to become the Ravine Butcher, before even that grim appellation is forever lost, along with everything that once defined him.

Not bad at all! :)

What made the experience of listening to Carnifex the most enjoyable?

I found that Paul's narration had a wonderful pace, this made it much easier for me to settle into a story which I'm not normally used to ready or listening to. I'm pretty much a sci fi gal.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Has to be Carnifax of course. I just thought he had such depths to the way he made his decisions.

Which character – as performed by Paul Woodson – was your favourite?

I think there were a good few different characters, Kal was one, and then Thumil. They all bounced off each other as friends would. And that certainly made it easier to listen to. The humour of the dwarves, and then their history was deep at times but didn't ruint he story for me, it added flavour that was needed especially when we realise where it's heading.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Really not good at this. so won't do it. :)

Any additional comments?

Like I said, I'm not normally into this sort of story. But I was swept away by the characters and the plight which they faced. I hadn't expected their world to start to collapse, but they had been in their 'own' world for almost 1000 years. It was only going to be a matter of time before something changed it and these poor guys were tested a lot. I really was on the edge of my chair, (well while driving, lol) wasn't quite expecting it to end as it did, but maybe that's because there's more in this saga. I look froward to reading/listening to more from both these two :) Many thanks.
