this book is definatly good different book. A collection of three paperbacks, i never read or even heard of it until i got the collection at SFBC.com. The story is definatly engaging. and thought provoking. Fights, blood guts, swordplay and wry humor its all there. After all, its about orcs. you can see the cliffhanger at the end of the first 2 parts. Even enough detailed description to realize what it would look like on the screen. Only downfall: as someone mention in another post. you are thrown in the middle of a story, though you grow to like the characters. and by the end everything is concluded the wrapping is a little too nice and too convenient. not that he tried to get it over with and finish the story. just leaves you hanging with the thought is that it?
definatly suggest reading it. hell buy it. if you like orcs and wizards and fantasy worlds this book will not do you wrong. maybe not as engaging as tolkien, or jordan or goodkind. but for what it is, it is a damn good story.
