Read from August 21 to September 11, 2010

This was the first in a continuing series about two half-orc brothers with a sense of morality that lies in the gray area. Qurrah is the frail yet magically powerful brother who desires power and knowledge and will seemingly stop and nothing to get it. Harruq is the larger, more formidable brother who worships his brother and will do whatever he asks, yet who feels remorse over the things he is being asked to do.

I felt myself drawn into the world of orcs, elves, and evil gods, and the story was most definitely captivating. It is at times hard to decide whether or not to ever root on either of the brothers, as they do commit some horrendous acts, but the characters are well-drawn and not at all 2-dimensional.

David Dalglish has done a great job of weaving conflict, love, and magic into his storyline. I am looking forward to reading the next installment.
