The dire legend of Thagrosh Hellborne began in cold and darkness... Thagrosh has known nothing but bondage and grueling labor for all his adult life. Prisoners of Khadoran slavers, he and the other ogrun of his village have spent their lives toiling in the lightless depths of a mine. Yet Thagrosh and his brother Vargal have a plan to escape their misery and flee to the nearby nation of Rhul. When their bid for freedom is discovered, Thagrosh is forced to escape alone into the wilderness. Pursued by the brutal Khadoran overseer and his band of relentless trackers, Thagrosh flees ever deeper into the cold mountains. But he is not only running for his life - he feels an irresistible draw to a towering peak, where an ancient, unknowable power awaits the perfect vessel to make manifest its will upon Caen once again.

Fans of Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, and fantasy RPG games will love this. Orrin Grey uses 4 characters to tell a daring tale of escape, loyalty, and integrity. Each character's thoughts and feelings are vividly conveyed chapter-to-chapter. I enjoyed its psychological deepth and primal energy. Good stuff!
Fanatical Endurance Athlete, who listens to a lot of books while training.
As I reflect on this book, the fact that I didn't really like this book is a credit to the author that his development of the characters was so real. I grew to like the main character but was really horrified with his fate at the end of the book.
DIdn't really ring my bell.
However, I will look for the next book to see what happens next.
