When half-bloods Harruq and Qurrah Tun pledged their lives to the death prophet Velixar, they sought only escape from their squalid beginnings. Instead, they become his greatest disciples, charged with leading his army of undead.

While they prepare, Harruq trains with an elf named Aurelia, to whom he owes his life. She is a window into a better world, but as war spreads between the races their friendship takes a dire turn.

Velixar orders them to fight alongside the humans, changing Aurelia from friend to foe. To protect her, Harruq must turn against his brother and fight the killing nature of his orcish heritage.

THE WEIGHT OF BLOOD by David Dalglish
To side with one means to turn on another. No matter Harruq’s decision, someone he loves will die.

  • Entertaining read.

    From Hindel
    Read to kill some late nights at work. I enjoy the Forgotten Realms series/style, but this book doesn't really measure up. Perhaps I'm biased. Still not terrible over all.
  • War of the twins

    From ,,?
    Good read. Very reminiscent of war of the twins, though this time around I preferred the big dumb brother to the magic wielder. Well written though and characters were mostly likable.
