I loved reading about Harruq and Qurrah's struggles. Hour after hour passed as the story about the two brothers took me inside of their world, making me feel their emotions and everything.

I felt sad and even felt tears come to my eyes at times and happyness when good things happened to them.

I started reading this book after reading the Shadowdance Trilogy and it was one of my best reading experience in the past year.

Definately recommend this book to anybody that likes the genre. I also loved t

The weight of blood (4.5*)
The two main characters, the half-orc/half-elf brothers Harruq and Qurrah Tun are living on the streets of Veldaran. Struggling to survive, things deteriorate when the king expels the elves from the city and the brothers have to move on.
As a warrior Harruq is the protector of his younger brother who is both weak and powerful with dark magic & necromancy. Harruq is compelled to do his brothers bidding and he commits senseless atrocities to aid his brothers education.

If it was not a combined volume I would not have gone past the second book. David Dalglish's writing style is very much character driven. In The Half-Orcs I found the characters shallow and unintresting. Most books I enjoy I have trouble putting down. In this case I had trouble picking it up. The exciting climaxes were so boring to me that I was struggling to read more then a page or two at a time.
