Thirty years ago, the Iron Wolves held back mud-orc hordes at the Pass of Splintered Bones, and led a brutal charge that saw the sorcerer Morkagoth slain.
Now, a new terror stalks the realm. Orlana the Changer has escaped from the Chaos Halls and is building an army, twisting horses, lions and bears into terrible, bloody hunters, summoning mud-orcs from the slime and heading north to battle the mighty region of Vagandrak where, it's said, the King has gone insane. General Dalgoran searches to reunite the heroes of old for what he believes will be their final battle. But Dalgoran discovers the Iron Wolves are no longer the heroes of legend, and they might just be more dangerous than the invading hordes…

I have something like 216 books in my library at this time, I always mean to be more active but I go nowhere without a book in my earphones
yes, this book was very dark and gritty. the main characters were by all accounts evil men and woman bent on doing the right thing one last time. and I think everyone needs to read a book without a happy ending.
it would have to be Nanok. he went through the most "horse shit" as he would say, and still managed to be the most noble member of the iron wolves. I would go so far as to say he wasn't even evil like the others just worn out by a hard life.
the fight scene between Dek and Nanok. I don't think the fight itself was any better or worse then any other but the author built up to this one with the past that the two fighters shared.
the book was really to long to make that feasible. but it did keep my attention the whole time.
the author spent the whole book working to a conclusion that took only 20 minutes. I was a little disappointed I know that there are supposed to be more books coming out so maybe the open questions he left hanging will be answered there. I don't know it just felt like he rushed the climax a little.
Was not the Epic story I wanted. Confusing plot, overly wordy, zippers and swords? (what the heck?), needs vocabulary help, who are the heroes, fighting parts are good, but lacks that . . . cheer factor for the winner - thing. Not worth the $10 bucks
