So I downloaded the first 3 books mainly because I was looking for a sci-fi series and broke. With the first 3 only costing ninety-nine cents each I figured even if they weren't any good it would be no big loss. Well, it was well worth the three dollars! The series has plenty of good plot developments and a nice cast of characters. The action is seamless and reminds me of early R.A Salvatore works. I just saw book four for sale today and am stoked to read more about the the two brothers. Thanks David for putting out a good affordable series!
P.S Dance of Cloaks was also a nice spin off.

I just finished Book 4 and I'm wondering if I should wait to do this review. I'm still a little speechless :-) Let me start by saying that if you have NOT read previous books in the series you need to start with Book 1. These books are not stand-alone and you'll want to start at the beginning. That said, it's worth the journey - I can't wait for the final book - book 5.

*** WARNING: Some Book 3 spoilers ahead. ***

So, on to talking about The Shadows of Grace. Things looked pretty grim at the end of Book 3. The city had been routed, the refugees were fleeing for their lives, and, as the icing on the cake, a portal to let even MORE nasty into the world was now open. This is where Book 4 picks up.

As with the previous books, the fight scenes are very well-written - some of the best I've read. At the same time, if you've followed the books from the beginning, you can see the growth of the writer - characters are more fleshed out, dialog is smoother, the work as a whole is just one step better. Perhaps that's just my perception since I've watched the characters from the beginning, so to speak, but I don't think so. Even supporting characters are vibrant. Queen Annabelle, for example, even though we don't see a lot of her, she makes a big impact and even in her limited "stage time" you get a good idea of what sort of person she is.

The Shadows of Grace will not disappoint - it's a beautiful work of fantasy and it continues what was started back in The Weight of Blood. We've moved one step further along in the story but so much further, at the same time. This series will be a classic in the fantasy genre and I can't wait for the finale.

Thankfully the wait wasn't too long for book four of this wonderful series, and it's another solid entry to to it.

There's several major battles, more frequently on a larger scale than some of the previous books, but the depth of detail is significantly less in these than previously because of this. That's not to say they aren't interesting, but I found them a little lacking especially in the first half of the book compared to some of the battles in the first few books, the battle at that half elf/half human town in the first book for example was fantastically described, and you could really imagine it.

To give an example of what I mean, there's really no description what so ever of how the angels and demons fought each other, just that they did and their bodies dropped out of the sky, which when you compare it to how much detail we got of how those wolfmen, birdmen etc from the previous books fight we could really imagine what that would look like. With the angels, nothing.

Although having said that the last 20% or so of the book is incredible and as good as any other part of the series easily. The twists were unpredictable but still very much believable based on the characters actions in the past, and the very end sets up what should be a brilliant 5th book. Can't see many of the other characters being happy with some of Harruqs decisions.

I've been a little negative in this review, but it really is a very, very good book, and I would highly recommend it.

The Shadows of Grace is book 4 in the fantastic The Half-Orcs series by David Dalglish, and like the rest of the series it is worth reading. I originally discovered the series when The Weight of Blood (book 1) was available as a free Kindle book. [On a side note, I believe making the first book in a series free is a fantastic way for that series to gain a lot of new readers and sell a lot more books.] Since starting The Weight of Blood, I haven't been able to stop reading the series, and The Shadows of Grace is no exception.

The book continues off where the previous book ends, following the survivors of Neldar as they seek refuge and safety from the armies of Karak. It follows their path across the land, looking for allies and a safe place to defend from their attackers. While the good guys appear to be having no real internal issues - just problems convincing others that there is an army of flying demons coming, the bad guys are having heaps of internal troubles caused by the newest contender for Karak's army leadership. We get to see a lot of the main characters from the series grow and change significantly, as different situations affect them.

Like the rest of The Half-Orcs series, it is good to read a story that isn't afraid to have fallible heroes and really dark situations. Most of this book just keeps getting darker, and there are points where I was wondering how many of them would actually survive until the next one. [Nope, I'm not telling who does and doesn't!] The world has a rich history, and there are always surprises and twists coming in the story to keep you interested and guessing.

There is one more book in the series, and I am looking forward to jumping into it and seeing how the story will end.
