    Bored of eating leftovers and waiting behind when their elders head off to raid, Stugkor and his mates Algok and Chidder have the bright idea to go out on their own raid, just the three of them. Forging off into the frozen wilds of Ghur, the youngsters find raiding to be less exciting than they expected, until they stumble across a human settlement presided over by an army of strange-looking deaders. The ogors make for entertaining and sympathetic protagonists, musing on profound topics such as Bored of eating leftovers and waiting behind when their elders head off to raid, Stugkor and his mates Algok and Chidder have the bright idea to go out on their own raid, just the three of them. Forging off into the frozen wilds of Ghur, the youngsters find raiding to be less exciting than they expected, until they stumble across a human settlement presided over by an army of strange-looking deaders. The ogors make for entertaining and sympathetic protagonists, musing on profound topics such as the correlation between a meal’s intelligence and its flavour and why humans make so many plans when they know they’re going to be eaten. It’s another cleverly thought-out and constructed story from Fletcher, using the naive but physically powerful ogors to show just how scary the Ossiarch can be.

    It's rare to see Ogors in a sympathetic light, but this story does so easily - and sends a few on a quick journey that was a delight to read.
