The King of the Vile (The Half-Orcs #7) - David Dalglish

“Ashhur will awaken in a blaze of fire...”

Mordan has lost their king, and Harruq Tun is a poor replacement. He has slain a god, but he cannot quell the unrest growing between the angels and the humans they are supposed to protect. The thin line between protectors and rulers blurs with each bloody death.

An army of beast-men lays siege to the north, while in the south, the nation of Ker invades seeking to overthrow the rule of angels. Those same angels are Mordan's only hope of defending itself on two fronts, if only they would look beyond the rebuilding of their fallen city.

Wizards and paladins, priests and angels, they all seek to benefit from the chaos. But a single figure manipulates them all from the shadows, seeking to overthrow the kingdom Harruq and his friends have fought so desperately to defend, and replace it with another...
