Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narniadisagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series. If the series has stan nicholls die orks order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title eg.

By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. Stan nicholls die orks you want to force a particular order, use the character to divide the number and the descriptor.

So, " 0 prequel " sorts by 0 under the label "prequel.


Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such see Wikipedia: Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a stan nicholls die orks fluid and contested notion.

A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher.

Oddly enough, the writing for the dream sequences were an exception; they were well-written, conveyed I was tricked into reading this - my copy had a quote on the cover by Tad Williams.

Oddly enough, the writing for the dream sequences were an exception; they were well-written, conveyed the mood properly, and generally worked well.

Unfortunately, they were a small fraction of the book.

The cover promised a new take on orcs, but apparently the author had never heard of Thrall and the Warcraft universe. If it weren't for the completely unnecessary sex scenes with extreme though implied violence, I might have suggested that this book was targeted at teens, who might be more tolerant of this schlock.

The last pages introduce a completely gratuitous "explanation" that doesn't fit with the depiction of the characters at all, and ends in a big "To Be Continued. I will admit that after forcing myself to read the first half of this book I ran out of the backs of cereal boxesI did find myself moderately invested in the characters and their quest.

This made the cop-out stan nicholls die orks even more disappointing than it would have been if I hadn't cared at all. And for the life of me, I couldn't remember why. Then I started reading, and by the time I hit stan nicholls die orks third chapter, I remembered.

Account Suspended

The good guys in this book are reasonable - interesting characters, for all they aren't particularly orc like - even if I find the narrative a bit monotonous.

But I can cope with that. The setting is a cross between standard Dungeons and Dragons fantasy and the orcs as featured in the Dominic Deegan webcomic ; not terribly original, but it's hard to get any fantasy these days that doesn't draw on something, stan nicholls die orks again, I can cope with that.

What I can't cope with? Is the main stan nicholls die orks guy.

And a more cliched, ridiculous and frankly, insulting character, I've not seen. Stan nicholls die orks was so bad, I actually went back and reread the preceeding chapter, in case this entire thing was an exercise in satire that had managed to pass completely over stan nicholls die orks head, and therefore this was meant more as a commentary on female villans in fantasy and how crap they invariably are rather than an example of one.

No no, it would appear I had it right the first time. Allow me to introduce Jennestra. Just to lead in and set the tone here, the outfit she picks out to visit the dragonpens in - a dirty, farmyard environment - is thigh high leather boots with stiletto-esque heels, leather corset, and a bullwhip; one selected from her collection of many, might I add.

Say it with me now: I mean not that I could take them seriously, but it would certainly be amusing to see stan nicholls die orks male villan visit his dairy shed clad in nothing more than ass-less chaps, baby oil, and brandishing an ambitiously sized dildo, which he could then shake it at his main cowherder in a suggestive manner to establish his dominance.
