This was quite a fun read, though it felt incomplete, and not just due to the fact the two leads get together toward the end, and there's not very much of their relationship shown after they get together. It feels incomplete also because this was just a snippet of time in that setting, and it took place just after a major world-changing event. There were definitely tensions and a few conflicts as well, but it was overall a rather brief peek into a world and characters that were really interestin ...more

A ScatteredThoughtsandRogueWords Review. This review can also be found here.

Vash is a female orc trying to survive the aftermath of Queen Nakuru's death with her horde of children in tow. As the orcs gain freedom from the Queen's control they find themselves thrust into an eventuality they wouldn't have ever even dreamt of had the thought of being free from the Queen's control ever entered their mind.

Imra is the Champion of the Free Races, the one who ends the life of Queen Nakuru and the one wh

I went into this with a high hope that I would enjoy it (it pinged a lot of things I like). But I love this book so much.
I love that it was set after the battle with the Big Bad. I love that everything wasn't so clear cut with the orcs. I loved that the Chosen One turned out to be a dwarven woman that still doubted herself. Although, I admit was a little disappointed when the pov switched to Irma the first time, but only because I was enjoying travelling with Vash and her little maggots. This bo

Ohhh! Another heart warming story of two of my most beloved writers.
Vash is a character that takes some getting used to since you usually don’t read about orcs being the heroes of a story. But her interactions with the little maggots - children - endeared her to me rather quick. It takes some time until you meet the in the blurb mentioned Champion, the dwarven heroine Irma. But as soon as she appears, her and Vash’s budding friendship turning to love is wonderful to watch. I cheered for the new

Loved this one -- taking place after the defeat of the Dark Queen, this is a delightful f/f between the dwarven Chosen One fighting imposter syndrome while trying to establish a new settlement and an orc mother trying to provide for her horde. Having orcs as main characters and their character depth and growth was refreshing. It picks up where most epic fantasies end, and I enjoyed how it explored the question of how does one rebuild a life after you save the world/after everything you've known ...more

A lot of telling makes it too rough to bother getting through.
