Would you sacrifice your child for the world?

Questions. Life, many times, comes down to having the strength to ask oneself the correct ones, leaving the answers almost secondary. In literature, we judge characters, especially those who’ve fallen from grace, by their actions. And yet those actions are often a direct reflection of not having the intestinal fortitude to look past the shiny veneer of their unfortunate circumstances and ask, “Is what has happened to me my own faul...more

The Shadows of Grace by David Dalglish is the fourth book in the Half-Orcs series. I'm glad to see that the author got back on track with this book. With Death of Promises, the book was just way to action oriented for my liking. It was just battle after battle with fireballs and lightning strikes thrown every where. In other words, I felt the balance was a bit off. Here though, I feel that the author graciously redeems himself. Of course, I'm writing this review after the series has completed so...more
I've finally figured out the timeline with these books. This series comes after all the action with master swordsman, "The Watcher" in the city of Veldaren, which has more books to yet be published.

This is a dark series. That I can live with, but I did not like the way the characters behaved in this book. I suffered through it hoping that I would be glad I finished the series and not regretting it. It was better to finish the series than to stop at this book, but this book was unpleasant for me to read, since I spent a lot of time hating the characters whom I had liked previously.
Good battle scenes, Harruq evolves as a character quite a bit and Jerico has an interesting issue.

Read the author note at the end. It somewhat explains the growth of Qurrah.

I like the play on Harruq and Qurrah and Tess and Mira. The mirror thing is very interesting. Especially after finishing this book in the series. Moving on to book 5!

They just keep getting better, even with the death of one of my all time favorite characters in all of his series.
