Having read Richard A. Knaak's Moon of the Spider book, in my opinion a wonderful read, I was looking much forward to reading his Stormrage. The book being about the impressive night elves and their headstrong leaders Malfurion Stormrage and Tyrande Whisperwind, I imagined to dig into some powerful writing, but was, unfortunately, let down. The book feels costly rushed and the strong characters seem vague and ill-described. While A. Knaak manages to maintain a comfortable pace of storytelling, I miss some detail and feeling. It feels shallow and almost as if A. Knaak is not interested in Malfurion's tale, and that is a big shame. The book is interesting, and it would be a shame and a lie to say I did not enjoy reading it. Had it been probably 100 or maybe less pages longer, I could have enjoyed it more. Such characters and such tales of fright just need more attention. It wasn't one of those books I just couldn't put down, but that being said, it was well worth my time and especially the last part of the book was interesting.
If you are a fan of the warcraft universe, the book is worthy of a read (:

This was by far the hardest wow book i have ever read. I am a wow lore junkie and was really looking forward to this book as it covers really interesting bit of the wow story, this is not one of Richard Knaaks best books. The story goes round and round once a character has been described it is almost like that is copied and pasted every time their name is mentioned. There are a few nice bits of lore but there really was a tough battle to get through

It was a nice reading overall but it leaned toward the game side of the story and it didn't feel like a book written by a real author but rather a gamer who just decided to write a novel. When you buy a Warcraft book you expect and even know that the whole story is inspired by a big franchise, but the way this story was written leaves most imagination out, also at points you need to know characters that have appeared on other books/manga and for newcomers is something I wouldn't recommend because their role and existence is at best poorly described. At least it gets interesting on the end, anyway have fun and judge for yourselves

While I got the book in time and was perfectly happy with the purchase itself and the seller, this book is really not well written. This was at first completely baffling to me since I have read all the other books from Richard Knaak in the WoW series, but seriously, this one does not read well and the style is very weird. Also the story could have been amazing but the way it is presented is quite underwhelming. Sad :(

The book arrived really fast in perfect condition.
There isn't much to say about the story itself, regrettable.
It is predictable and not really impressive, at moments i actually got bored.
If you don't expect too much(yes it's a computer game story after all), it can be rather enjoyable.

After thoroughly enjoying previous excursions into the World of Warcraft through the War of Ancients trilogy and the Warcraft Archive, I was rather looking forward to reading this book for 2 reasons:
1. Malfurion Stormrage is undeniably one of the most exciting characters in the series
2. Richard Knaak has proved himself a very capable writer in this genre

I was disappointed on both counts from this book. The main reason was that the story is dragged on 200 pages longer than what it deserves. The story lets Stormrage down by depicting a situation where he's more or less helpless, for a major part of the book. This immediately belies the godlike abilities he displayed in the Ancients trilogy. Knaak then continues to draw out the conflict with the story's main antagonist to the point where I was ready to throw in the towel if there was even one more mention of Stormrage almost giving up and then finding a bit more strength to make one last effort (how many last efforts can one make!!)
The story also almost reduces to a joke the powers of the Aspects. The other characters of the book, including the other druids, night elves and Thura the orc are poorly developed and didn't engage me to the point of caring what happened to them.

Final verdict? This book is worth a read only if you enjoy reading stories about WoW and Azeroth. If you're a Stormrage fan or expect this book to be as good as earlier efforts by Knaak and Golden, steer clear of it, because very simply, it isn't.

Loved this book. Very engaging storyline and as much as I love Knaak's other books, it was nice to see some new main characters instead of the usual trio of Krasus, Rhonin and Vereesa.

An excellent read especially for the players of Druids in the world of Azeroth. Great to see Malfurian becoming more aware of his abilities and the corruption of the Emerald Dream.
