All books (it is said) have a beginning, a middle, and an end. Not so in this case. The entire story seems the "middle", completely lacking a begining or end. That means that there was no final battle, and the book ended abruptly.
There are good points however. The beginning chapter is so gripping that it will probably motivate you to read half the book in one sitting. Its fast paced and delivers a lot of action through out. The characters are a little cold, but when it comes to a battle, Stan directs them well.
It's worth checking out if you intend to spend time reading the entire series. It does leave you with the incentive to buy the next novel by leaving you on a cliff hanger at the end of the book.
But in this book it is the orcs, who normally are treated as bad guys by default, who defend their traditions and way of life in a fantasy world invaded by humans. The humans pollute, exhaust natural resources and generally make things bad for everyone else, all in the name of their One True God.
It is a good twist, but it's not a great book. The characters are somewhat stereotype. It's more of an RPG adventure than a novel. But there is a lot of fighting (it is about orcs, after all) and of course an epic quest to embark on. I can recommend you to read it because it is a quick, fun read with some nice ideas and twists.
