  Orc's is a high fantasy book that introduces us to a very different side to the Orc, set as the main protagonists these green skinned creatures are quite far removed from what we would traditionally see as an atypical Orc. These Orcs are smart, emotional and articulate with a strong sense of humor albeit with a natural ferocity and warlike nature.3/5.   No: in fact the word "Orc" doesn't appear in The Hobbit except in the Author's Notes where it states that Orc is the Hobbit's word referring to goblin or hobgoblin. Goblins do appear in the book but there is no band of wolf-riding Orcs .

The Greenskins are a highly primitive and warlike race of bestial humanoid barbarians and raiders that occupy much of the Eastern Hemisphere of the Warhammer World.
