When the orcs and goblins of Summervale, Virginia, need something done, they call Jack. He's the one who convinces the local PD to ignore any tribal violence. The guy who makes sure the goblins aren't evicted whenever they do something decidedly goblin.
He also does the little things that no one else is willing to do. Like handing keys over whenever a prodigal son returns, or identifying the body of said prodigal.
Then there's the occasional murderous paladin and his vengeful god to deal with.
All in a day's work.

This. Was. Awesome!!!! It's the story of Jack Bloodfist. Jack is a fixer, or so they call him, he fixes things for the families, very mobesque ;) When goblins and orcs start turning up dead, it's up to Jack to figure out what's going on.
I loved Jack!! He is the go to man for his family and does at great job at what he does. When his friends start turning up dead and his family is in danger, Jack knows that he needs to get answers before it's too late. Jack also finds out some answers about himself and his abilities.
The plot of this was well written, fast paced and entertaining. The author really captured my attention right from the start and didn't let go till the very last page, and even then, I couldn't stop thinking about the book and hoping there will be another one soon!!!!
In all, this was a fun and exciting first book (in what I hope will become a series). I absolutely loved this and can recommend it to everyone. A fun, engaging and addictive book!!
Rich Remedios was amazing in his different tones and voices for each character. There are a lot and yet, I had no trouble distinguishing who was talking at any given time. I thoroughly enjoyed his performance.
*I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affected my thoughts.*

WOW! Worth the credit and more.
This was so good I completed it in a day and preparding to listen to it again. I had little expection during the prolouge. The prolouge is talking about light, dark, dead, dying, cast, down and higher order stuff. It was to philosophical to keep my attention. As soon as Jack begins to tell his story, I was engrossed. Jack is an orc. He is really an orc and goblin mixed. He polices the community as the peace maker between various races.
The races came to "this world" as a group with Jack's father as the leader. Of course there is story as to why so many kids are called Jack. Jack does not have magic or an innate ability to be conisdered "special".
If you like a lot of action with a little romance, and a sense of family with other wordly creatures this is it. No VAMPIRES. I love a good vampire story but this is a great with orcs, goblins, a gay werewolf and an elf. Jack has no problem kicking butt and doing the orcly thing when he has to.
Now why did I not give a the overall score a 5 star? The godly, magician,human and not any of the above stuff. How does one ascend to the level of a "god" and get dethrone? It does not seem like a big question but it is the prolouge of the story and the teaser in the epilogue.
So if you like a good vs evil story, with action, and a big loveable guy as the hero, this is it.
