I barely finished this one and probably won't read another Nicholls's Orc serie, already give too much time to it.Even if I finally pass over the fact that it don't really live the expectation to see the world with orc eyes (when you make a wolrd just for them, they become a generic fighter race), I couldn't care for the rest of the story.Again, everytime the Orcs got in trouble, they just fight and win. Worst part is near the end, the Orcs are trapped in a city without issue facing a siege agai [...]
I really enjoyed the first two books, and this was ok, but for me just drifted off track in about the last third, after the siege.Some of it just annoyed me, such as the sudden re appearance of one of the bounty hunters, and somehow the castle in the wasteland and everything that occurred in it did not quite sit right.It was ok, enjoyable enough, but just a little unsatisfying at the end.
I bought an omnibus of all six Orcs books, and now that I've finished the third one (essentially the first of two trilogies) I don't think I'll continue any more. Like the first two, this book isn't bad, but isn't good enough to make me want to invest the time it will take to read another trilogy.Aside from the main cast of orcs all being practically invincible, Stan Nicholls tried to humanise them at the cost of consistency. In the first book two orcs are killed and the others say some words of [...]
Il mio voto va complessivamente alla trilogia di Nicholss, davvero un peccato che purtroppo non sia facilmente reperibile, poiché davvero una bellissima lettura. La storia e gli eventi che coinvolgono i Figli del Lupo li ho trovati originali, ben scritti, coinvolgenti. L'avventura si snoda senza iperboli o inutili orpelli, è l'azione a far da padrone, anche se non mancano momenti ragionati che danno spazio anche allo sviluppo dei personaggi. Paradossalmente, Stryke è quello che meno mi ha col [...]
Guerreros de la Tempestad (Warrior of the tempest) es la última novela que conforma la saga de Orcos: la primera Sangre escrita por Stan Nicholls y publicadas por allá por el 99-2000. En esta trilogía el autor británico reinventa a los orcos y nos narra la historia desde su punto de vista. En un universo de fantasía medieval convencional, donde los orcos son la plaga, aquí son una raza militarista que intenta encajar en un mundo que los ha encorsetado en un cliché del cual no pueden escap [...]
To be honest this book is hovering between a 3 and a 4. It was never nail bitingly engaging but there was enough going on to keep me interested to the end.That being said Nicholls writes combat decently. He ties up all the major threads but there was just a spark missing, an intensity. I gave the first book in the series a 4 star rating with the knowledge that it too was skirting the line between 3 & 4. So I can't really justify doing it again. Overall the series is worth a read if you have [...]
This trilogy was great. First: I got it in an omnibus and didn't even realize it was a trilogy 'till the last book -- the flow is pretty damned impeccable, and it doesn't slacken pace, making it quite the page-turner. Second: the conceit is wonderful, long overdue and handled near flawlessly. The language is witty, the characters are sharp and, pleasingly, the female characters are given as much strength and handled with as much grace as about anything I've read of late.My criticism mostly lies [...]
The last book of the triology is packed with action and big battles. It took a couple of chapters before i got into the story again and the action starts. The beginning of this book is necessary to understand the last chapters of the book. After page 100 (?) the story goes "on" real quick and a lot is happening. You have no time to become bored or distracted and sometimes you need time to recover from all things happening in the book. The first half of the book is rougly worth 3 stars and the la [...]
Ultimo libro sulla trilogia degli Orchi, non si discosta molto dai precedenti; sempre con troppo poco da dire e da raccontare, ora del terzo libro i combattimenti sono pure diventati ripetitivi.Solo alla fine del libro arriva l'idea che sta dietro ai libri, carina anche, ma sicuramente troppo tardi!Mi chiedo ancora a cosa servano alcuni personaggi (es: i cacciatori di taglie) se non a allungare un po' il brodo; e perché inserire quell'epilogo/antefatto.
Una trilogia che si apre in maniera meravigliosa, si esaurisce in un finale di scarso valore. Non �� un buon libro, ma avendo letto il primo volume dovevo arrivare fino in fondo. Un libro povero di idee tanto quanto era ricco il primo. Delusione
Mmmm mica mi ha convinto molto la 'fine'
It was entertaining but it wasn't outstanding. There are a lot of tropes in here.
Pas un seul temps de répit dans ce récit récit d'une quête presque "magico-écologique" pour sauver un royaume et connaître la mystérieuse origine de ces guerriers Orcs
This wrapped up the trilogy. The series was kind of blah for me and so was the ending. A hack and slash adventure with a story arc to get you from one fight to the next.
