Book Description

10 May 2003 Warcraft Archives Series (Book 2)
Slave. Gladiator. Shaman. Warchief. The enigmatic Orc known as Thrall has been all of these. Raised from infancy by cruel human masters who sought to mould him into their perfect pawn, Thrall was driven by both the savagery in his heart and the cunning of his upbringing to pursue a destiny he was only beginning to understand - to break his bondage and rediscover the ancient traditions of his people. Now the tumultuous tale of his life's journey - a saga of honour, hatred, and hope - can at last be told...

This is the story of Thrall, a yong orc slave who is trained as a gladiator by human masters but escapes in order to seek out his own people and lead them to freedom. The storyline gradually reveals more about the culture and history of the orc clans, interesting for those already familiar with the Warcraft games. After their total defeat in the wars the orcs are looking for a way forward, which involves rediscovery of their identity and a return to their honourable shamanistic traditions of the past.
Thrall's story has echoes of Sparticus and Conan the Barbarian. As a reader you can empathise with the chatacter as he goes through a series of harsh ordeals before finally emerging as Lord of the Clans.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Story Missed 12 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
WarCraft: Lord of the clans, is the story of Thrall, a Orcish Warrior that was raised by humans. The humans Goal was to raise a orc with an orc's fiercness but a human's intelligence. Little did they know how fierce he would become.
This Story was original going to be released in the form of an adventure game by Blizzard Entertainment, but later dropped. WarCraft III takes place after Lord of The Clans with some bits being key issues for WarCraft III, so the story had to be told.
Lord of the Clans is an official Blizzard story released from Blizzard.
There was only one problem I found with this book.....It was too SHORT!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good 19 Sep 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Its hard to get excited about a book based on a game if you are not a gamer. Having played warcraft i thought it might be interesting to read the stories. Even if you are not into the game you will like this book just as a fantasy reader. Honestly i am going to try get my Mum to read it.
Having rolled Alliance i thought i might not like a book about the Horde. It actually gives you a bit of sympathy for them. This is not hard since the the humans in the book are pretty awful bar one maybe two. It gives you a better understanding of the orc race and what they stand for. If you are expecting a multi-race bonanza you will be disappointed because it just has Orcs and Humans.
Most importantly it is Thrall's story. It is an engrossing tale that only took me a couple of days. For players of WOW it also has an old favourite - Drek'Thar (i like to call him Drekkie-poos). Of added interest is Durnholde and the frost wolf clan in the story.
If you are feeling a bit put-upon and need to get some fight back then read this and take a bit of inspiration from the Orcs. Roar!

5.0 out of 5 stars Favourite Warcraft novel 15 July 2014
By Clare
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Absolutely my favourite Warcraft book, I've read it so many times. I've also recommended it to people who aren't fans of the game, because it works as a great fantasy stand alone story too.

The story of the Horde Warchief, Thrall, is a great read for any major Warcraft player. Christie Golden has wrote a story that shows how Thrall began his life as a slave to the humans, fighting as a gladiator in the ring against other combatants, and escaped to become the massively popular shamanistic Warchief of the Horde. Whether or not the reader is driven by the lore of Warcraft or just wishes to understand the backstory of one of the most iconic figures, then this book is a brilliant resource and fun read.
