Her new role as queen is viewed by some as temporary.
Queen of the Orcs: Royal Destiny
They feel she should pass the power back to a true orc, and plot to see her brought down. As the dark magic grows stronger Dar must discover a way to preserve the orcs and the fragile peace, but the price she pays may be everything she holds dear and even her own life. Fantastic conclusion. Let me still say a few positive things about the book, because some people will probably love it regardless.
Royal Destiny (Queen of the Orcs Series #3) by Morgan Howell | NOOK Book (eBook) | Barnes & Noble®
First, Dar is a terrifically imagined and executed character. If she is the reason that you liked the first two books, then this one will not disappoint you. The author does an excellent job of portraying her inner struggles as she tries to avert disaster for her adopted culture.
But I still didn't like the book. I have previously described the author's style as "utilitarian. This book, an epic tale of the burden of power, would really be enhanced by a more subtle approach. This is most apparent in the author's choice to tell the story from every characters' perspective, including the villains'.
Although there are ways to make such an approach work, in this particular book, the omnipresent narration saps the uncertainty from the plot. Furthermore, Howell misses an opportunity to add some depth to the villains.
Howell's good guys are very emotionally complex and interesting, but his bad guys are just bad. For a book that in every other way tries to portray a harsh, believable fantasy world, the use of melodramatic arch-villains is disappointing.

The clunky writing and lack of nuanced characters just made it too fable like and predictable. I read the first few pages, predicted what would happen, read the last few pages and saw that every one of my predictions came true and was bored with the rest. In hindsight I would not recommend this series as it goes down hill fast. Plot wise - Dargu is now the mystical queen of the orcs, having rescued the Orc queen and taken her mystical spirit. Now both female Orcs and the humans plot against her.

This was a pretty good trilogy, and different from anything I personally have read before because it has a large focus on orcish culture. YouKneeK Mar 26, The final installment of the trilogy finds Dar alive, but the tenuous alliance formed with Queen Girta to bring peace between orcs and humans is crumbling.
This may never be one of my favorite series, and it doesn't have the typical happy ending, but it's well written and I'm sure I'll find myself re-reading it now and againl. SunnySD Sep 3, D: I unfortunately must concur with the low opinion of this final book shared by some other members. This series got progressively worse as it went on, and this final book was unreadable for me. You must log in to edit Common Knowledge data. Queen of the Orcs 3. Royal Destiny.
