Malwynn and his twin sister, Umaryn, live in a small town in Northern Varrland. In idyllic New Picknell nearly nothing happens, and when their day-to-day routine is interrupted by a skirmish between an invading patrol of the dead from The Amaranth Empire and a defending force from Varrland, their world begins to come undone. With international war looming on the horizon, New Picknell becomes the center of quite unwanted attention, and the twins have their world shattered. With nothing left to lose, they set out on a mission of vengeance that will take them to places they'd never dreamed of visiting, discovering mystical powers in The Way that will change their lives forever, and revealing dark knowledge best left undiscovered.
The Wrath of the Orphans and the world of Elmoryn are filled with elements of dark horror, steampunk, and sorcery. It is an ancient world filled with heroes of immeasurable valor and ancient secrets tearing at the past to be known again. Written by the author of the Internet phenomenon Adrian's Undead Diary, The Wrath of the Orphans is the first book in a sprawling dark fantasy epic trilogy that is sure to thrill, charm, and disturb.

A good listen, with the promise for more

I listened to this book at pretty decent pace. A couple commutes and evenings. I found enjoyed the world, the magics, and also some questions I was asking. The world is a bit different. No spoiliers... Necromancy is almost a dominant magic. The dead WILL rise, unless they are seen to by what I thought of as White Mages or Priests. Our protagonists stumble intro trouble, come of age in their way, and then seek to unleash their Wrath. I really enjoyed the setting and methods these things came about. I was not blown away, but I was definitely entertained! I am looking forward to the 2nd book. I haven't personally found books that explore Necromancy very much and I really like the expansion to the typical magic world by having Necromancy at the forefront of this world. I like where Chris Philbrook has us pointed at the end of book 1. Old questions tied up, new ones raised appropriately, and characters developed. Well done!
