An ancient darkness lurks in Gayne County, and it will not be taken lightly.

Thurk Gutarg lives a hard life. Being both an orc and one of the famed Albara Rangers, his entire life has been spent under the judgemental eyes of other people. When reports come in from isolated Gayne County of people going missing on the plains, Thurk can not be sure of the cause. He strikes out anyway, firm in his duty as a Ranger.

Finding unlikely allies in the form of an old dwarf named Galmar and a native boy called A'Tiami, Thurk sets out to find the dark evil plaguing this small western town.

Can this unlikely trio discover Gayne County's dark secret in time to save the town and themselves?

A rich fantasy world combines with a vibrant western story in a world full of lost magic and fearsome beasts in this debut novella to the Orc Ranger series.

Lovers of the Weird West Fantasy Genre (The Dark Tower, Wolf in Shadow), as well as fans of traditional fantasy and contemporary fantasy, will thoroughly enjoy this tale. Read The Orc Ranger today to accompany Thurk and his companions on an unforgettable journey through the West.
