'A betrayed soldier with a loyal wife and a kingdom to save. A treacherous king. An orc general who doesn't trust his dark lord. As the orc army of Skavan surges into Handar, Major Halmar must fight the toughest battle of his life. But he doesn't trust his king, and the rest of the army has disappeared. And he has never fought a battle with his family so close and a town packed full of civilians. General Bregesh, an orc and commander of the Skavan army, has every intention of crushing Handar, once and for all. But the Handar archers and footmen aren't his only enemy. The dark lord of Skavan, Remfeltan, an undead necromancer, demands victory. And he doesn't care how many dead orcs it takes. The action doesn't stop. It's kill or be killed from the first to the last page. Chris Wilkins has a grasp of battles unlike any other author. An enthralling read. It's like a breath of fresh air to see something different in the fantasy genre.'
