In their wisdom (or madness), Amazon has decided to offer The Weight of Blood (The Half-Orcs, Book 1) for free.
I haven’t read this book yet but it has been on my list of books to read for a long time. The book has gotten very good reviews and it is now #2 in the Epic Fantasy category.
There is no reason not to download and try the book for yourself especially if you are interested in a darker story. If you like it, give the other books in the series a try.
