Fantasy's bad guys finally their own say in this fast moving, action packed, tongue-in-cheek tale of Orc valor and human treachery.

Disagree about Narrator Comment

I disagree with the other reviewers comment about the narrator.
I have heard better narrators sure, but I think John Lee is well above average.
His diction is clear and the number of times (over a very long book ;-) (thumbs up !) ) I had to rewind, were very few.
I enjoyed the book and was disapointed not to find any more 'Stan Nicolls' works on offer.
If there were and if it were narrated by John Lee, I would not hesitate.
He has also narrated some Alistair Renolds works and though the defined 'cast' in both, is limited, you can pick them out and the emotion of the writting comes through without the gush.

Great Battles

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I really enjoyed the battles in this book. It was nice to have a book that didn't skimp or gloss over the battles.
While that was certainly the main plus on the book it also has some negatives. I did find it a bit tedious and a bit simple. I think maybe if I had listened to this when I was 15 I would of loved it. I now like something with a bit more substance. A story line with a bit more character growth. There is a huge horde of Orcs yet we only ever really know 5 of them.
If you wants nice easy listen that is full of battles and people being hit over the head with there severed arm then this is the book for you.
If your looking for great character development with many twists and turns then probably not.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Strike is probably my favourite character simply for the reason he is the only one with any real character development through out the book.

Do you think Orcs needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. It is a good stand alone book and wraps up most questions.
