Orcs | [Stan Nicholls]

Orcs

"There is fear and hatred in your eyes. To you I am a monster, a skulker in the shadows, a fiend to scare your children with. A creature to be hunted down and slaughtered llike a beast in the fields. It is time you pay heed to the beast. And see the beast in yourself. I have your fear. But I have earned your respect. Hear my story. Feel the flow of blood and be thankful. Thankful that it was me, not you, who bore the sword. Thankful to the Orcs: born to fight, destined to win peace for all."

Publisher's Summary

"LOOK AT ME. LOOK AT THE ORC."

"There is fear and hatred in your eyes. To you I am a monster, a skulker in the shadows, a fiend to scare your children with. A creature to be hunted down and slaughtered llike a beast in the fields.

"It is time you pay heed to the beast. And see the beast in yourself. I have your fear. But I have earned your respect.

"Hear my story. Feel the flow of blood and be thankful. Thankful that it was me, not you, who bore the sword. Thankful to the Orcs: born to fight, destined to win peace for all."

Combining the international best-selling trilogy Bodyguard of Lightning, Legion of Thunder, and Warriors of the Tempest - plus a new short story previously available only in a small-press anthology - Orcs presents the entire story of Stryke and his band of Orcs. A fast-moving, action-packed, tongue-in-cheek saga of Orc valor and human treachery.

    This was a nice surprise for me. The auhor and performance keep me engaged. There was a few times when the story slowed down too much but overall I enjoyed the story and performance.

    "Overlooked but enjoyable series"

    I would love to listen to this series again. In the scifi world some authors and books go unheard because they aren't part of a well known catalogue. This is one of those series. I was introduced to the Orcs a few years ago by a man the is very picky about his fiction. I took the time to read it and then to purchase it on audial book and I have never been disappointed.

    The characters are well formed and well developed. Strike is an Orc leader that allows you to actually get behind and route for the Orc cause. Something very foreign to me (and most) because of how Orcs are portrayed in most mainstream fantasy. The writing is excellent. The narration is done very well, also. The reader adds the little bits that make the characters come to life in the way you would expect from reading the books.

    Overall, this series will continue to be overlooked because of the fact that there is no Orc movie and the casual reader will be distracted by the fancy worlds that make it onto the big screen. This statement is a shame to me, because this, may not be a well known read, but it was one of the best trilogies I have read in while. Hopefully Orcs will enjoy more exposure in the future and more people will enjoy what is a wonderful experience.
