Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash Novel Vol. 18
A WORLD OF PAIN
The Frontier Army has finally captured Mount Grief, but before they can mourn those they’ve lost along the way, a messenger from the dwarven kingdom comes begging for help! The dwarves are under siege in the Kurogane Mountain Range, and Haruhiro and his friends must repel the invasion! To reach the kingdom, they have to travel across the Quickwind Plains, a treacherous land of giants and monsters. What awaits them on the other side just might change the world forever!
Series Overview: Haruhiro awakens to darkness and amnesia, among a group of strangers who can only remember their own names. When they make it into the light, they discover Grimgar—a fantasy world that’s like something out of an RPG game. Without apparent skills or knowledge of their surroundings, Haruhiro and his newfound friends band together to form an adventuring party. Only by cooperating, using their wits, and learning new skills can they hope to survive in this dangerous land of monsters and magic.
