The Orc King, Transitions 1
The war with the orcs continues. Obould?s throne is threatened by Grguch, the chieftain of Clan Karuck. The Karuck clan has inter-bred with ogres to make bigger, stronger, and superior warriors. The orcs are divided by those who want to continue fighting until they have claimed Mithral Hall, thus serving the desires of Gruumsh One-eye, and those who seek not just peace between the races, but a recognized kingdom of their own to rule, the Kingdom of Many-Arrows. But, Grguch is not the only one in the way of the destiny of Silver Marches. The Moonwood elves are butchering the orcs as they please. Also, the drow Tos?un and the trickster Jack, a Jaculi, are having their fun too. Innovindil?s futile struggle to save the Moonwood elves from the offensive orc ambush, will force Drizzt to track down his own kind, the remaining dark elf. And with Tos?un?s possession of Khazid?hea, will Drizzt be able to save Tos?un from the sword? Wulfgar will come to terms with Delly?s untimely death in his own way, as he makes his return to the tundra, back to Icewind Dale. Salvatore gave me chills and broke my heart, when Wulfgar did what he thought was right by Colson. King Bruenor and Lady Alustriel of Silverymoon will have the same argument again. Which is, to stand and fight with the dwarves of Mithral Hall, and kill all the orcs while driving them back into their dark, deep holes, back to the Underdark? King Bruenor?s expedition to find the legendary Gauntlgrym, will deliver an unbelievable and shocking surprise to not just the stubborn Bruenor, but to the entire Spine of the World!
