My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Orc King is a classic fantasy novel about the search for peace amid the struggle for power.
The Bad Stuff: There are some over technical explanations within the fight scenes that detract from the story. Some long and clunky sentences.
The good stuff: The characters are well rounded and interesting. I also liked the magical weapons, the creatures and locations. The story is set in a well established world.
In my opinion, this is a great fantasy novel with Orcs, Elves, Dwarves, magic and magical weapons. What more could you ask for? This one gets 4 out of 5 golden bookmarks from me.
