Wishlist Wednesday [#20]

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted @ Pen to Paper where we get to feature a book that’s been on our wishlist for a long time that we want to buy/read! I have a hugely extensive list that I keep updated over on The Book Depository so I’m never short of books that I’m wishing on.

Where do I make my lists? First and foremost I use my “sound good” shelf on Goodreads where I basically keep track of all the books I’ve encountered that tickle my fancy. BUT, The Book Depository has my most concise list of all the books that I so dearly want to throw my money at and look at one my shelf.

 This week I’m wishing on . . .

Zellohar Keep is lost…
Once the ancestral home of a glorious dwarven kingdom-a masterpiece of architecture, secure, secretive, impregnable-Zellohar is now prison to a dark evil. The dwarves used the might of the Cornerstones, conduits to the power of the elemental spheres, to forever seal the keep.
But the minions of the Dark Gods are not so easily imprisoned.
The squires of the Nekdukarr Lord Iveron Darkmist, a paladin of the death god, Mortas, have recovered the Cornerstones. The enchantment has been broken. The doors that sealed the chaos of the Nine Hells within the mountain under Zellohar have been opened. The powers of the Nine Hells, have, quite literally, broken loose.
Iveron Darkmist has resumed the campaign he began nearly one hundred year ago-to devastate the surface world in a storm of destruction and death. And with Zellohar as his fortress, the Cornerstones to fuel his magic, and the Dark Gods’ favor, he will be invincible.
All that stands in his way are a horse farmer’s daughter, a superstitious tribesman, a defrocked priest, a demented dwarf and an elf cursed with lycanthropy. The unwitting companions stumble into the Nekdukarr’s plot, and are thrown into a conflict that threatens to obliterate all they know and love.
Pursued to the corners of the realms, the companions flee the wrath of Iveron Darkmist. But even death is no refuge from the power of the Dark Gods.

Okay, so apart from having a ridiculously long blurb, I do think this one sounds really interesting. I’ve not seen anyone else talk about it, but it’s got some serious Middle Earth vibes going for it. There are dwarves and gods and conflicts and strange place names.

I’ve had this on my wishlist since the dawn of time, it feels like, but it’s always been so expensive to buy because it’s not a hugely famous or popular book. ‘Tis a shame. Hopefully one day I’ll be able to grab a copy from somewhere and see what it’s all about because I’m definitely curious to see where this story goes, that’s for sure.
