Short Synopsis
Fantasy's bad guys finally get their own say in this omnibus edition of Stan Nicholls's bestselling Orc trilogy.

Full Synopsis

"There is fear and hatred in your eyes. To you I am a monster, a skulker in the shadows, a fiend to scare your children with. A creature to be hunted down and slaughtered llike a beast in the fields.

"It is time you pay heed to the beast. And see the beast in yourself. I have your fear. But I have earned your respect.

"Hear my story. Feel the flow of blood and be thankful. Thankful that it was me, not you, who bore the sword. Thankful to the Orcs: born to fight, destined to win peace for all."

Combining the international bestselling trilogy—Bodyguard of Lightning, Legion of Thunder, and Warriors of the Tempest—plus a new short story previously available only in a small-press anthology, Orcs presents the entire story of Stryke and his band of Orcs. A fast-moving, action-packed, tongue-in-cheek saga of Orc valor and human treachery.

"A wonderful piece of storytelling.... Underlying all the fun and games is a core of skillfully drawn, fully realized characters who engage your sympathy from the start and never let go." ---Tom Holt, author of Snow White and the Seven Samurai

"Nicholls captures adventure fantasy at its very best.... This edition...will be a cult classic with quest fantasy fans on both sides of the Pond." ---Publishers Weekly Starred Review

"Wall-to-wall action with undercurrents of dark humor." ---David Gemmell, author of the Troy Trilogy

"[The] listening finds a perfect vessel in John Lee's deep, rhythmic, reverberating voice with its quirky mix of Irish and English accents." ---Publishers Weekly Audio Review
