I loved this book. Yeah, it was a little preachy at times but that's the author's prerogative. Sure, the battles were all pretty much the same but isn't that how real battles are? There are only so many ways to kill an opponent with a sword. I found it a little unbelievable that the orcs didn't lose more members but hey, it's a work of fiction. I'm willing to suspend reality for the sake of a book. I was also a little disappointed that the orcs weren't as orcish as they should be but overall, a very fun read. The characters are well developed, there weren't too many slow spots and while the ending might be a bit weak you have to remember there is going to be another trilogy to follow...it doesn't have to be some earth shattering ending. I'd have no problem recommending this book to people that are fans of fantasy.
