In Orcs:Tales Of Maras-Dantia, Stan Nicholls delivers an action-packed prequel to his international best-selling Orcs series. Join Stryke, Haskeer, Coilla and the rest of the Wolverines - the toughest, meanest mercenary band around - as they embark on their most dangerous missions yet. The book also features an Orcish interview with the author conducted by the late David Gemmell, and an excised opening chapter from the novel Weapons of Magical Destruction, which shows our hard-bitten heroes in a new light Both are published here for the first time. The author has no plans to revisit his Orcs, so these stories may well represent the Wolverines' final hurrah. If so, they bow out in style.

"It is quick, fast, dirty, very funny and often surreal." - The Guardian

"... fast-paced with plenty of hairpin twists, crammed with loads of juicy battles and properly bad baddies." - Tom Holt

"Incorporating wall to wall action with undercurrents of dark humour... The heroes are orcs - though you wouldn't want to meet any of them on a dark night!" - David Gemmell

"Weirdly charming, fast-moving and freaky. Remember, buy now or beg for mercy later..." - Tad Williams

"This is high fantasy for readers who like their heroes ugly and their wizards weird." - Jon Courtenay Grimwood in SFX magazine
