Orcs

By Stan Nicholls (Electronic Book, 2008)
"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 like 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."

This book will change the way you feel about Orcs forever.

  • "Buy now or beg for mercy later." --- Tad Williams, author of Shadowmarch

    "Subverts traditional fantasy tropes by centering on the much-maligned orcs.  It is quick, fast, dirty, very funny and often surreal." --- John Courtenay Grimwood, The Guardian

    "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." --- David Gemmell, author of the bestselling Drenai series
