Orcs: Inferno

By Stan Nicholls (Trade Paperback, 2012)
Using the mysterious artifacts known as instrumentalities, the Wolverines embarked on a world-hopping mission to liberate fellow orcs and to take revenge on their old antagonist Jennesta. But it isn't working out too well for the warband. Saddled with novices and a pair of humans of doubtful loyalty, and pursued by a powerful group bent on retrieving the instrumentalities, life is proving far from simple.

And destiny has more complications in store. The instrumentalities can no longer be relied upon and have left the band trapped in a world where enemies mass on every side. While tensions in the band threaten to rip it apart, Thirzarr, mate of Wolverines captain Stryke, has been seized by Jennesta and faces a living death.

With the fate of worlds at stake, daunting obstacles, and fresh adversaries blocking their path, the Wolverines are about to be drawn into the greatest battle of their lives.

  • Praise for Orcs:

    "With grand scale world building, labyrinthine plotlines, extensive backstory and pedal-to-the-metal action, Nicholls captures adventure fantasy at its very best." --- Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

    "Weirdly charming, fast moving and freaky.  Buy now or beg for mercy later." --- Tad Williams, author of Shadowmarch

    "Excellent fantasy with a twist." --- SFX

    "A wonderful piece of storytelling; fast paced, crammed with loads of juicy battles...exciting and genuinely moving.  A feast for the most jaded fantasy-lover's palate.  Enjoy." --- Tom Holt

    "Wall to wall action, undercurrents of dark humor...gritty, fast paced." --- David Gemmell
