The Orb of Wrath combines fantasy, intrigue and adventure, while transports the reader into a world where almost nothing is what it seems. Plots, counterplots, mysteries, blossoming relationships, disappointments, betrayals, dangers and successes, are combined in this fun cocktail.

One day, when they are doing one of their assignments, they encounter another group of adventurers, with whom they are forced to cooperate.
The plot runs in the World of Oris which consists of 12 kingdoms and includes elves clans, dangerous monsters, dwarf kings, rich desert emirs, strange beasts, hospital halflings, ferocious orcs, ingenious gnomes, powerful wizards, brave knights, merchants, terrible vampires, etc. Recommended for the permanent library of all fantasy readers.

*I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review*

Who doesn't like an epic adventure story? 

The world of Bor is a dangerous place and the characters in this book are embarking on a huge mission. This book took a while for me to get into, mainly due to the hopping from character to character and trying to figure out who everyone was. I would say though it is worth pushing through, because it doesn't take long to sort out what is happening and who are hero's are.  

There is a lot of weaving of subplots in this story and I enjoyed this because it gave the story more depth. It wasn't just a book about a hero going on a mission, more was going on in the world and we as the reader we privy to it. Any lover of fantasy novels would enjoy this book, it has everything we could want-adventure, danger, a quest, and mystery.
