    One thought on “Amarante: A Tale of Old Tharduin”

    1. This short Sword & Sorcery tale reads like an appetizer for a longer work. The setting and characters are fully realised, despite its short length.I bought it from DriveThruFiction as a PDF, where it seems to be available for free, along with another great short story, this one set in ancient Sparta, titled Sanctuary.

    2. An exciting tale of Orcs and sorcery. I really enjoyed the writing in this one. It definitely helps if you know some things about the Orc background for this story as well.

    3. A different approach than what I'm used to -- focusing the story on what would normally be considered the antagonist. Taking a look from the opposite end of the wars and the struggles gives one hope that the bad guy will come out victorious.I loved it, and look forward to Scott continuing on with this series.

    4. I've always liked short stories, and this one is very enjoyable. I haven't read much Orc fiction (outside of Tolkien) actually, outside of Tolkien, this is the only Orc fiction I think I've ever read. Anyway, I really liked it.

    5. Very good interplay between the Orcs. And, very well crafted viewpoint from the Orcs. They're bastards, you don't exactly want them to win, but they are doing what they do because it's what they do. There is enough tension created that you want to follow them through it, regardless of outcome.
