Beneath the Broken Moon by Patrick Todoroff was set in a land similar to Middle Earth after the apocalypse.
The main character is Addas, a half-human half-ork, who has been living in an ork settlement. I use the term living loosely. He is not treated well by anyone except maybe a goblin named Snat. Someone volunteered Addas to be the tracker for a Dwarf/Ork expedition. Addas has never done any tracking in his life. However, doing this job may lead to something better. He believes that it cannot be worse than his current situation.
He doesn’t know how to read and he hears the voice of his deceased mentor, Chalk.
So the expedition begins and Addas leads them to the next point without many problems. He does begin to piece together that there is more to this trip than anyone tells him.
I did enjoy reading Beneath the Moon, except that the print was so tiny. It was a fluke with my Kindle. Luckily my new glasses came yesterday.
Beneath the Moon Recommendation
If you enjoy sci-fi or fantasy, then you should give this book a chance.
If you don’t like adventure or books from a different perspective then maybe this isn’t the book for you.

Beautiful cover, too.
