Second title in "The History of the Small World" Series

In the first book in the History of Small World series, titled “The Siege of the Small World” we journeyed with the leprechauns as they organized an expedition to the north in order to find out why trade had stopped.


This second book in the series begins with their arrival at the North Groves and continues with their trials and challenges in the hope that the northern and southern trade can be reestablished.

This is an enlightening series of interesting events which holds the reader captive. The vivid details engage the reader with glimpses of Small World which includes dwarfs, lepelves, elves, gnomes and leprechauns. The story is a reflection of the challenges of a world where light and truth triumphs narrowly but only when sought by the few good.
