Pretty standard fantasy affair. The setting feels very DnD/Tolkien-ish (elves are pretty and live a long time, orcs be stoopid an' ugly, magic weapons, spells, and priests oh my!), with a few interesting bits thrown in about the world's deities.

I can't make up my mind whether Harruq and Qurrah ring true as characters. They each have some pretty major flaws (one more-so than the other), but also they are half-orc outcasts living in a hostile society and have had some seriously damaging life experiences.

David Dalglish Cypher,

Just wanted to thank you for reading and reviewing my work. Doesn't look like I 'wowed' you, but I hope you at least enjoyed your time with Harruq and Qurrah.


Cypher1014 Got it in one.

While I didn't fall in love with this novel, I certainly don't regret the money or time I spent on it.

Also, it was much better than most of the crap on tv.
