WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS takes up the tale of one unhappy hybrid, sired and kept without consent, and of the mess that swirls around him as he tries to find his place between his human and orcish halves. If only anything were simple! Larger games are already in progress on the board he wanders onto. Angels, gods both real and false, imperial trade cartels, a foreign Fae-elf spy, and other mortal leaders all have stakes in whose pawns these Orcs turn out to be.
Fans of Bradbury, Adams, Clarke and Pratchett will find themselves right at home in this introspective political thriller cleverly disguised as epic fantasy.
In the words of its first fan and reader:
"Newcomer M.G. Norris presents a struggle of multiple worlds, races, nations, and beings both temporal and extraplanar, playing out across a scale at once both terrestrial and cosmic. One that presents the question of morality and mortality as one and the same, and above all else, as a question of innocence."
~Joseph Brassey, Mongoliad contributor, author of Katabasis, and the upcoming Glassblade and Skyfarer series.
