Davi (Tales of Suruale #1) by Roy Booth and Brian Woods

Humans and dwarfs have been at odds for generations. When human blacksmith Davi is sent to the Dwarven King to reopen the local trade routes, he finds himself more at home with his enemies than he ever did with his own kind.

The premise of the storyline sounded intriguing: a human leaving his own kind to find his way with the dwarves. To me, this sounds like a difficult journey full of challenges, resistance and racism. Hopefully with an outcome highlighting how strength of character and persistance prevails.

Unfortunately, the story did not live up to this expectation. There was almost no conflict to speak of at all. Everything seemed too smooth and easy. This led to a disappointing read.

There is current a free preview available on Goodreads. Several other readers have read and loved the story. If you like this type of story, I would encourage you to read it yourself. It is a quick read at only 95 pages. Let me know what you think of it. I appear to be one of the few reviewers who did not enjoy the story, and I’d like to hear what it is that I am missing.
