Mary Gentle IS Very Hard To Get a Hold Of.

I adore her books. Especially Ash.

She doesn’t promote herself all over the internet. Which I admire – even when I’m trying to researrch the woman behind the books.

Nota Bene : GRUNTS is a word we use in HM Forces for the front line “Cannon Fodder.” Sorry but

They are the REAL workers. The trench diggers. The riflemen. The lowest of the low Engineers. Common and replaceable Soldiers.

The usual last battle of Good against Evil is about to begin, and Orc Captain Ashnak and his war-band know exactly what to expect. The forces of Light are outnumbered, full of headstrong heroes devoid of tactics, but the Light’s still going to win. Orcs will die by the thousands, and no one cares. No even the Nameless Necromancer who hired them.

Mary Gentle uses Fantasy to write her books but she is a scholar of both history and warfare.

I had NO idea that the only yt book review of a MG book that I’d find would be by a Scot called Jackie. Go figure :o)
