Book Description

The Burning Legion has been defeated, and eastern regions of Kalimdor are now shared by two nations: the orcs of Durotar, led by their noble Warchief, Thrall; and the humans of Theramore, led by one of the most powerful mages alive -- Lady Jaina Proudmoore.

But the tentative peace between orcs and humans is suddenly crumbling. Random attacks against Durotar's holdings suggest that the humans have renewed their aggression toward the orcs. Now Jaina and Thrall must avert disaster before old hatreds are rekindled -- and Kalimdor is plunged into another devastating war.

Jaina's search to uncover the truth behind the attacks leads her to a shocking revelation. Her encounter with a legendary, long-lost wizard will challenge everything that she believes and illuminate the secret history of the world of...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not for everyone 5 Sept. 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I would like to start by saying that I love Warcraft. I've played the games and read all the other books. As a result I was very eager to read this one. After finishing it, I came to the conclusion that this is a good book but nothing special. Some people complain about the lack of character devellopment in this book, but If you've played the games and/or read the other books, you'll already know a lot about the background of some of the main characters. Therefore, you'll enjoy this book a lot more If you're a Warcraft fan. Another complaint I have is that the book is rather short, only about 240 pages. In the end I liked the book and so will other Warcraft fans, but if you've never read or played a Warcraft product, this is not the book for you to start.

1.0 out of 5 stars Jesus, this was dire... 27 Feb. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
To start off with, I've read many WoW books and played from vanilla to mists and have enjoyed the work by Christie Golden most and Richard Knaak is decent, if a little inconsistent. This book, however, was the worst by far I've read.

Why? An interesting time in wow lore that gives some freedom for creative license and the author gets it dead wrong. The writing style is borderline patronising and suitable for a very young audience. Whether intended or not, many parts were cringe worthy.

As others have said, the author takes every chance to push an agenda of gender equality. Pushes it to the point of vomit. WoW has many strong characters, man or woman and keeps labouring the point of how stupid men are, and how unfortunate women are due to sex.

I could go on but typing this from my phone is annoying. If you want a good read, decent wow lore, this is not it. I hope this author doesn't write again, or do their research on the characters and make wholesale changes. There are much, much better wow books available. 1 star is about all this is worth.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible 17 Jun. 2014
By Brad
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Stopped reading halfway through.
Literally, without exaggeration, every other paragraph is a woman musing about how difficult it is to be a woman because of oppressive men, or a man questioning the ability and competence of women.
The book is nothing more than a platform for the social agenda of the author.
