The Queen's Orc  by jodancingtree 2 Review(s)
CalimeReviewed Chapter: 22 on 1/14/2005
A simply gorgeous chapter. These two lines are my favorites: "And that is a victory for the Dark Lord after all, is it not? The warrior has become prisoner of his own sword." So poetic and Tolkienesque.

"Because it is the land of Light, and while I live I battle against the Dark. I was hungry and did not know what I hungered for, but now I do know. It is the Call upon the First-born, and I feel it but I cannot answer it; my race is cursed!" How eloquently it fits Tolkien's pre-Christian epoch and at the same time reflects the Christian struggle against sin. Very like what Paul wrote.

I am never dissapointed at the depth of your writing, Jo. Bravo!

Author Reply: Thank you, Calime! I'm so glad you're back, and continuing the journey with Canohando - hope you had a happy Christmas.

Jo, these chapters just keep getting better and better, Canahando becomes more elvish, the elves have time to make their decisions, and the little wounded elf starts to find a redemption of her own.
I love your work, the quality just keeps on and on.

Author Reply: Thank you, Rose! I'm glad that it comes through, that that is what's happening to Canohando - that is what I was thinking, that as he lives out his redemption, he would become more and more what he was actually meant to be, if Morgoth had not tormented the captured Elves into Orcs. Thanks for reviewing!
