Baker & Taylor
Kidnapped as a child by the Nilfghar dark elves, Orivon Firefist has grown up as a slave, forced to use his great strength to serve his captors, but now he yearns to return to the surface world and is willing to do anything, even destroy the entire dark elf empire, to escape.

McMillan Palgrave
From the bestselling creator of the Forgotten Realms, the first book in a new series set among the villainous dark elves

Orivon Firefist was captured as a six-year-old child by the Nilfghar--the dark elves--who attacked his village by night on one of their surface raids.
Fifteen years later, he is a moon-pale, scarred, muscular giant of a man, who has spent his days at forgework for a dark elf family. He is also forced to use his great strength to shift furniture in the grand rooms of their castle. He has been trained (and flogged and ordered about) by the beautiful Tsarnarra, a lash-wielding matron who is icily cruel, but proud of the slaves that she has trained.
Through all of this, Orivon's spirit has never been broken. He longs to return to the surface world, even if that means destroying the entire dark elf empire along the way!

Dark Warrior Rising draws deeply from the canon of European mythology for its world of Niflheim and dark elves, and in an afterword, Greenwood traces the genesis of this popular role-playing game archetype back to its Beowulf-era sources.
