Fun! Orcs as badly paid, badly treated labour class in the US, working in factories, few rights, no accommodation of culture, very (fantasy, but barely) racism. Solid characters, interesting arcs. A bit too US-ian for me to fully care, but in a good way? Like, very solidly localised, in a way that makes it less for me, but very much for other people.
