First Sentence
War. It had once seemed to some of the Kirin Tor, the magical conclave that ruled the small nation of Dalaran, that the world of Azeroth had never known anything but constant bloodshed. Read the first page

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mr. A. Harris on 19 Oct. 2005
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I was very excited when the book arrived. I'm a starcraft man myself and I've read all the starcraft books, so to venture into warcraft was something very new for me. I've played all the warcraft games but I've not really gone into depth with its history.
The book was really easy to read once I got into it. The first few chapters were abit confusing. It really just pushed you into the middle of something that you had no clue about.It reminded my of a shorter Lord of the Rings book, with many similarities between Middle Earth and Azeroth. Everyone has to take inspiration from somewhere though, I'm sure JRR Tolkien took his Middle Earth idea part from somewhere else.
I'm looking forward to reading the War of the Ancient trilogy, when it finally arrives.
I'd recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Warcraft. Fans will enjoy it from start to finish.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a thrilling tale of myth and magic, it tells the story of Rhonin a mage wgo needs to redeem himself. he goes on a quest to khaz modan, a dwarven land held by the feersome orcs. What he finds there is much more than he bargained for, however he is determent to see his missoin done. Richard A. knaak has realy done a spectacular job on this book, it is told in such detail and exitment. you will not regret buying this book, that I can promise you.
However this book might not seem so facinating to those who do not like fantasy books, but I would still recommend it.

I'm not much of a reader but have been wanting to get into reading a bit more and thought that being a huge fan of Warcraft II and III and for the past 3 years, World of Warcraft, these books would be a good start.

Now first and foremost, i brought this book in the World of Warcraft Archive book rather than seperately, but obviously the story is the same which I will review.

This book is a fantastic read, really immersive especially in some of the gryphon fights. There are a few good twists and turns along the way and its well written, not like J. R. R. Tolkien but still well written all the same.

The only problem I found is that occasionally the book will switch scenes between characters, one moment your following the main protagonists then your suddenly reading about whats going on somewhere else, which personally got confusing at times.

If your a Warcraft fan, i highly recommend

Format: Mass Market Paperback
These sort of tie-in books are usually pretty poor, so I wasn't expecting much from this. I read it mainly to get some background information to help me with my WOW roleplaying. Anyway, I found the story as a whole to be very interesting, and it was quite easy to read, too.
The main draw-back was the author, not the story; at times I cringed with the amateurism of his writing skills.
There were some really naff things in it: Dwarves lusting after an Elf-maiden; fanatical 2-dimensional human warriors with barely a brain cell between them, and so on. Other than that, I enjoyed it, so I can only hope Mr Knaak (is that his real name?) improves in his other books in the series.

I was told not to expect much as this is apparently one of the least well written of the WoW books in the collection, however I decided to ignore criticisms against the writer and read it with an unbiased mind-set and I'm really glad I did.
I already had knowledge of the main figures in the book, (Rhonin, Vereesa, Alexstrasza etc.) before reading, so I am unsure whether certain details of the book will be missed by someone who is inexperienced with WoW lore, but it is definitely a good complimentary read alongside information you would gain in-game and I would recommend it among the other WoW books to new comers and veterans alike.
Perhaps it isn't one of the better written books but I found it to be an enjoyable read overall.

A pretty nice, short read to get you started in the world of Azeroth. Interesting way to go about looking at the relationships between the difference races, especially within the Alliance itself. A bit confusing if you are familiar with the lore (I found it a little difficult to place the novel within the timeline of events that I know about through other readings on the lore) but it all made sense after a short while. Whilst I would definitely recommend and having this is a great item to add to my gaming/fantasy collection, as a general fantasy novel it is rather lacking in any real depth considering the rich history the Warcraft world has to offer, but being a short read this is to be expected I suppose.

This book is really interesting if you are a fan of the Warcraft series, it tells the tale of the Dragon aspects and the corruption and creation of Deathwing. There is not a lot of lore surrounding the dragons out there so this is particularly interesting, the book is not perfect though so only 4 stars - but it is still highly enjoyable and interesting.
You will learn more about: The Dragon aspects; Alexstrasza, Malygos, Nozdormu, Ysera and Deathwing. The Kirin Tor, Lord/Lady Prestor, Orc Dragonriders + more!

Read prior to the 'War of The Ancients Trilogy (Richard A. Knaak) as the characters follow on from this book.
