Publisher's Summary

His blind fury is infamous, his strength without rival, but the legend of the man known as the Butcher of Khardov was forged in a crucible of pain.... The legacy of the massacre near Boarsgate at the hand of the warcaster Orsus Zoktavir has followed him his whole life - but it is another memory that fuels both his rage and his will to live. Before he was one of Khador’s most potent weapons he was simply a young man striving to make a life for himself, and for his beloved, free of the violence that came so easily to him. Her gentle presence helps him quell his simmering temper, but fate changes everything, sweeping him up in events that would lead to grief and madness.

Learn the tragic history of Orsus Zoktavir and plumb the depths of his rage in The Butcher of Khardov.

    "The tragic tale of Orsus Zoktavir"
    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There is no single moment that is moving as you see the fragments of Orsus' mind come together you feel sorry for the man who would become known as the Butcher.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a dark secret that many have pondered on for over a decade. Listen now the tale of what made Orsus Zoktavir into the Butcher of Khardov and the tragedy carried by the axe known as Lola.

    Story
    "A great look into the Iron Kingdoms"
    What did you love best about The Butcher of Khardov?

    This book does one of the most interesting characters of the Iron Kingdoms justice. His furry and insanity are well portrayed and justified. And the way the story jumps perspectives is a great way of telling this story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Butcher himself.


    Which character – as performed by Marc Vietor – was your favorite?

    The Butcher himself.
