We tend to forget, after so many multi-volume fantasy works, that epics were shorter than novels. This story is epic in that older sense, a tightly written account of a few battles in a long war. Garner weaves Celtic and Norse folklore together into a plausible English mythology. His dwarf characters, in particular, are down-to-earth in the way dwarves ought to be.

The scenes where the children and dwarves are working their way through narrow underground passages are, without any violence whatever, some of the most frightening I have ever read.
