An orc is a fire plug of a fighting machine made of muscle, hide, talon and husk, with a villainous disposition and a mean sense of humor. And, of course, an orc is a poor dumb grunt – the much abused foot soldier of the Evil Horde of Darkness.
The usual last battle of Good against Evil is about to begin. Orc Captain Ashnak and his war-band know exactly what they can expect. The forces of Light are outnumbered, full of headstrong heroes devoid of tactics – but the Light's still going to win. Orcs – the sword fodder of the front line – will die by the thousands. Life's a bitch.
Grunts! is a triumphant tactical advance into comic fantasy territory by Mary Gentle, capturing the grim realism and grim comedy of sword and sorcery from the bad guy's point of view.
