About the Series: Another Stupid Trilogy
Bill Ricardi's debut fantasy series, written as the first person diary of an orc who wanted to live a braver life, was an immediate sensation. Podium Publishing quickly secured the audiobook rights, helping to propel 'Another Stupid Trilogy' into the hearts of fantasy fans around the globe.

Sorch is an abused orc mage in a world where orcs are cursed with stupidity every time they cast a spell. As a slave to the Voodoo Engine, he was fated to live a short, unrewarding life. While foraging for food one night, Sorch stumbles upon two human mages in big trouble. He saves their lives, and in return they give him an amulet that will make his life easier. Unbeknownst to the humans, their gift grants Sorch the power to break the cycle of intelligence drain and physical abuse. With the help of his friends, Sorch becomes a real mage. He leaves his swamp and embarks on a series of incredibly exciting and dangerous adventures. During his travels he encounters horrible injury, magical treasures, love, snow, university admissions tests, a plot against the Kingdom, and then of course he saves the world. Or does he?

Refreshingly different take on someone coming into magic. I enjoyed it, read the book in one day.

A clever writing method is used to show the mental state of our hero Sorch. Follow him through sword and magical adventures. I am looking out for more of this series.

Don't judge this book by the first few chapters. Once Sorch finds a way past the intelligence drain, the writing style reflects this accordingly. It's an entertaining light fantasy and I loved the ending. The only stylistic thing I didn't like was the constant referral to the androgynous character Ames as "their" - I personally would have been more comfortable with the moniker "it" to avoid the weird impression that the story was talking about multiple people every time Ames was referred to.

And there is sex and heavy petting in the story. I tend to avoid this sort of stuff entirely, but overall this book still gets three stars because the element I disliked was small enough in volume to be mostly ignored. And as I said, the ending was great.
