Thalandor is a city of wealth and power, a gem of gold in the otherwise desolate desert. Yet not all who live in this great city share in its prosperity.
On the outskirts lay the Hovels, home to refuges of war and victims of tragedy. It is here that Doratin was born. Life is tough in the Hovels, yet he manages to survive under the watch and love of his mother. However, with orc blood rushing through his veins, it is only a matter of time before disaster strikes...
The Half-Orc is a fantasy novel detailing the tragic life of Doratin as he faces loss, triumph, and conflict in hopes of finding what we all desire: home.
