First I'd like to say the only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because the full 5 belong to Lord of the Rings and the Lord of the Rings only.
These books are a breath of fast cold air, the description in the violence scenes really hits the bone and the characters are very likeable, and that involves Haskeer. One of the most enjoyable set of books I've read recently, Stan Nicholls has his own brand of writing, if i could describe it in 2 words I'd say FAST & FURIOUS.

I simply could not see the point of Stan Nicholls ideas about Orcs. Yes, writing an action / fantasy tale from a traditional protagonists P.O.V is an entertaining notion. But it seemed to me that the author simply humanised these characters rather than attempt to re-invent them. What's the point? If the Orcs are talking, thinking, behaving and reacting to their world as human charcters do in all other fiction, then all the author has done is given us a shabby pantomime with poor actors in very bad make up.

As for the writing itself, I found it clumsy, derivative to the point of the cliche, and I'm afraid to say, virtually adolescent. I give you one of endless examples of this dreadful prose and rest my case:

"She took his manhood in her hands..."

The fantasy genre is replete with badly written books.

Did we really need another?

4.0 out of 5 stars An epic that has an ending... great 27 Dec. 2001
By Simon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Warriors of Tempest turned out to be the last of a trilogy...
Such a shame, because I was getting used to Stryke and his comrades... Clearly Stan decided halfway the book to put an end to it, because the end is rather rude...
Did I mind? No... we don't need another endless Wheel of Time series :-)
The book, as its two prequels is fastpaced and reads like lightning (mum said it was a waste of money to have me read it in one day! :-))
I hope Stan will do a follow up on Stryke and his warband in the realm of Orcs... or have a spin of on Jup (the dwarve) at least!!
