The Princess and the Orc
Book Description: Courage and its consequences. The Princess and the Orc is a short three-part story that challenges how we think about those who are different from us.
Princess Kamela looks out on the Wilds of Avith and wonders what might live out there. She grimaces knowing that there is probably nothing out there but vile creatures called orcs. Suddenly orcs from the Wilds swarm from hiding and take her captive. Imprisoned, she discovers that the orcs worship Nafash, an evil god that binds his people in fear. A lowly but sensitive orc named Drawf is chosen to look after Kamela. However, as he goes about what he must, he finds himself liking her. Conflict moils within and yet he must do what he must do! Kamela casts aside prejudice and reaches out to Drawf. However, since orcs hate her people, and her people hate orcs, for him to respond in kind would be perilous. Death haunts both of them in this electrifying adventure in the Wilds of Aviith.
