This was one of the last graphic novels I picked up while we were in France. I've always loved Orcs and it was good to see a book where they were the heros. The orks here were a little bit like elves in that they were the primitive people living in the forests who were one with nature. The humans were coming through the forests destroying them. It was a fairly simple premise but it was told well with lots of intrigue and mystery. The art was almost too pretty the orcs were all finely sculpted and quite beautiful, at least as far as their bodies went. It was a little disconcerting. The French I managed quite easily with a dictionary. I found I had to look up about a word a page. (using the nice french Larouse iphone dictionary which is very good). I managed to understand just about everything. Which was really nice. Definitley planning on picking up volume 2 when I'm back in Paris next time.
