While tracking a tribe of orcs, Remence comes across much more than that…an ogre mage seeks to unite all the orcs of the region against humans and non-orc kind. These orcs are well-disciplined, organized, and much better equipped; it is a true army, unlike anything young Remence has ever seen. And they are heading right for his village! When he fails to convince the village elders of the imminent threat to their lives, Remence takes extraordinary measures to save his people.
Caladin and Quinn are much more than the fancy thieves they appear to be. On their latest endeavor, they, too, learn of the orc host bearing down on the people of the region and throw themselves into the fray. After the gentlemen procurers are hired to uncover information about the recent orc attack, they enlist the help of Remence, learning their fight is against a common foe. Alongside a ragtag group of orc hunters, three half-ogre brothers, and a half-orc, Caladin, Quinn, and Remence turn detective and seek to find the person who is aiding the ogre mage. What they discover is that they may be the only ones standing between the massive orc army and the threat to humankind.
*I was provided a copy of this book for review. This does not affect my opinion expressed below*
Though this book sounded fantastic to me as someone who truly enjoys fantasy, I was hesitant going in because the last few months I’ve struggled with books being able to grip me enough to keep reading. I’ve started and stopped many reads in all of my favorite genres so I was nervous to give it a go. Thankfully, those nerves were not founded. I was gripped almost from the start and WOW what a book.
John D Pepe knows how to get into the hearts of his characters and spin a tale ripe with both action, wit and the perfect level of build. I was turning pages as quickly as the Kindle app would allow it. Truly fascinating read. The world he has created for us is well built, and one that I’m honestly going to have to dive into again. It’s got that level of readability that will have you rereading it over and over. I love that about it. I don’t want to give too much away but all I can say is WOW that blurb doesn’t do this novel justice. If you’re in the market to find the next great fantasy novelist, John D Pepe’s The Lone Wolf will surely convince you who that is. Highly recommend.
