The elves, dwarves and humans all know the älfar to be dark, relentless warriors. This is their time. In Dson Faïmon, the realm of the älfar, the warriors are planning a military campaign. Caphalor and Sinthoras are looking to enlist a powerful demon to strengthen their army - but the two älfar have very different goals. While Caphalor is determined to defend the borders of their empire and no more, the ambitious Sinthoras is intent on invasion: and he has the kingdoms of dwarves, elves and men firmly in his sights.

I enjoyed the book. It's a well written fantasy story . . . I suppose it bears warning that the main characters are evil Alfar, so you've got to be able to get through a few grotesque descriptions and overall evilness of the people in order to really enjoy the story * Novelnaut * A welcome return to the world of Markus Heitz's Dwarves series * Dominish * There is adventure, fighting, death, one truly gruesome act and a people going to war. I enjoyed this book and I want more about the AElfar. Because at the end, stuff is going down * Books for Life * The prose is sharp, the action sequences bloody and all in this has been a real joy to read. Throw into the mix some cracking double-dealing, some political machinations and all in this series has been a pure joy from start to finish and definitely one I'd recommend to other fantasy fans * Falcata Times * A Tolkienesque fantasy adventure novel needs a solid villain for the readers to loathe, and in Markus Heitz's Righteous Fury, we find a quite impressive one . . . If your bookshelf is already home to Tolkien, Martin, and company, Righteous Fury will find a comfortable spot to fit in * Booklist on Righteous Fury * Driven by unrelenting action, [the book] springs to life through the vivid, vigorous writing * Kirkus on the Legends of the Alfar * Tolkien with a dash of Gemmell and a sprinkling of George R.R. Martin * Malazan Empire on Markus Heitz * Heitz keeps on delivering ... I would recommend Righteous Fury to everyone looking for exciting Tolkien-inspired fantasy * Upcoming4me *
