    Many people are extremely hateful towards this series as it is clearly a 'rip-off' of Tolkien. However, I found this series very enjoyable. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings was certainly a magnificent series, but it did have many many long drawn out battle scenes. McKiernan's novels, on the other hand, are significantly less focused on battles. There's still plenty of action and battle, but I found the series to be much faster paced and attention keeping. I love McKiernan's take on Tolkien's hobbits. The Warrows are not just simple, helpless characters. They are skilled with the bow and hunting techniques. Overall, I found this series to be extremely enjoyable. I for one am a huge fan of the Iron Tower Trilogy, and the Silver Call Duology.

    A pretty good finish to the Silver Call series. Well, it's all of two books, which could easily have been combined into one-the actual text of Brega Path is only about 150 pages, the rest are appendixes that aren't particularly necessary.Still, McKiernan does a good job making the protagonists interesting and likable, if a bit one-dimensional. The dwarves get more to do than in most fantasy novels, which is nice, and some of them even nearly have personalities beyond the typical gruff dwarf (but not much, and not many). And there's still not one human, warrow, elf, or dwarf who doesn't have a heart of gold. Go figure. The one frustrating facet to the story is that McKiernan's dwarves go on and on about how terrible war is, and how it should never be taken lightly or entered into without good cause (all true, of course), but then it dawns on the reader that the dwarves just want to re-take their homeland. They don't actually need to take Kraggen-cor--they could just as easily have sealed it off and trapped the Spawn inside, with much less loss of life. It's entirely a war of choice. Still a fun read though, if you are ok with some Tolkein-lite from time to time. And I am.

    Trek to Kraggen-Cor and The Brega Path comprise the Silver Call Duology, a sequel sequence to McKiernan's Iron Tower trilogy, the first-published books in his Mithgar series. I have heard that The Silver Call was originally written as a sequel to Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, but he could not secure permission to publish it, so he wrote his own trilogy and then re-wrote these two volumes to serve as a sequel to his own story. Perhaps his initial enthusiasm was augmented by his later increased skill and subsequent attention to detail, but for whatever reason I thought The Silver Call (it's really just one long story cut in half, in my opinion) was one of the best high-fantasy epics I'd ever read. I prefer it to Tolkien in many ways. There have been a -lot- of similar fantasy series, but Mithgar is among the best and The Silver Call is one of the best of stories set there.

    This was relatively good - definitely better than I was expecting. I continued to find myself enjoying the characters, even if they and the situations are fairly similar to Lord of the Rings. There were some nice deviations from the Mines of Moria episode, including exploring the lair of the Balrog Gargon. I also like how Perry and Cotton come face to face with the harsh realities of war and realize how different it is from what the wonderful adventure they had imagined. Over all, I found this duology to be fun enough, especially considering it's basically Tolkien fanfic. I probably will check out more Mithgar books, in hopes that they improve as they move out of Tolkien's shadow.

    Part 1 of the Silver Call duology.This is the book for everyone who wondered "what happened to Moria after the War of the Ring." It goes a little beyond that, but not much. To be honest, the 'trilogy' it spawned, the Iron Tower is much the superior work. Don't let this, if it's not your cup of tea, put you off that.

    Ever wonder what Tolkien's dwarves would have done with Moria now that the balrog was killed. McKiernan's dwarves go back to reclaim their lost home. I love dwarves, I love fantasy so this story has it all for me. Top honors, highly recommended

    I know he stole his ideas from Tolkien, but 12 year-old me loved it.

    War is terrible and Cotton and Perry learn that first hand. Victory, even when necessary, comes with a price.
