Product Description

Product Description

Though the young Warchief Thrall ended the demon curse that had plagued his people for generations, the orcs still wrestle with the sins of their bloody past. As the rampaging Horde, they waged a number of devastating wars against their perennial enemy -- the Alliance. Yet the rage and bloodlust that drove the orcs to destroy everything in their path nearly consumed them as well.

Long ago, on the idyllic world of Draenor, the noble orc clans lived in relative peace with their enigmatic neighbors, the draenei. But the nefarious agents of the Burning Legion had other plans for both of the unsuspecting races. The demon-lord Kil'jaeden set in motion a dark chain of events that would succeed not only in eradicating the draenei, but forging the orc clans into an single, unstoppable juggernaut of hatred and destruction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 30 May 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a great read and leaves you with a wealth of background knowledge on the horde and Draenei!
You learn loads about: Durotan, Ogrim Doomhammer, Velen, Kil'jaeden, The Naaru, Ner'zhul, Guldan, Archimonde, Sargeras, Blackhand, Drek'Thar, Grom Hellscream, Blood Lust, Draenor -Hellfire Peninsula/Terrokar/Nagrand.

The book tells you everything you need to know about the corruption of the Eredar and the escape of Velen and the Draenei, it also tells of the Orcs heritage and tradition and their unification and corruption leading to them waging war on the Draenia and the opening of the Dark Portal.
I found the background to the Draenei's tale particulaty interesting!
An excellent read!

Make sure you follow it up with 'Lord of The Clans' also by Christie Golden, as the tale continues.

I've always been a big fan of the World of Warcraft game where I play a level 60 Alliance Mage fighting the Horde. So, I was pleasantly surprised with this story that describes their rise - and fall - in a well crafted story that sets the scene for many familiar locations and characters within the game.

Those of you who have purchased The Burning Crusade expansion will also find a wealth of information on the origin of the Draenei race and the building of the Dark Portal, all tightly woven into a well written storyline. Those of you who play the Horde in the game will also find a great deal of information on many, key Horde characters including Durotan and Doomhammer.

Overall, a well told story that is in keeping with the warcraft theme that will keep you entertained and add to the colour of your online gameplay.

For the Horde! (oops I meant the Alliance!)

4.0 out of 5 stars A refreshing Warcraft read 30 May 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Ever since the release of 'Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos', I've been a fan of the series of games. They have a great plot and a well thought-out world. I've read all the Warcraft novels that have been released up until now and I have to say this is one of the better. The story is interesting and ties in to the one in the games almost perfectly. Finally we know the story of the orcs on their homeworld Draenor. One problem I had with the novel was with the character Ner'zhul. He was always represented as a person with evil ambitions who converted the orcs to his cause. In this novel however he seems rather reluctant with what's happening. In conclusion, it's a good read, but only if you're a Warcraft fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW Rise of the Hord 2 Jan 2010
By Friends fan VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought to read when on holiday (when game play is impossible).
Looks a decent reading book. There are 6pages in centre which is comic strip, but it is a thick enough reading book to accomodate this.

5.0 out of 5 stars FOR THE HORDE! 10 Nov 2014
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Amazing book, the very beginning of the horde and the war between draeni and orcs. This book follows Durotan father of Thrall as he grows up on draenor amongst the frostwolf clan. Being next in line to become Cheiftan of the clan he has a lot to learn. Thrall tells the story of his father and his best friend Orgrim Doomhammer as they grew up and the darkness that followed from Kil'Jadens arrival on draenor to extinguish the draeni once and for all using the orcs as his pawns.

10/10 I would reccomend this to any warcraft or world of warcraft fan or lore nerd.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 23 Sep 2009

I went into this book knowing what would happen, I didn't find it as enjoyable as War crimes, but its still well worth a read if you're not familiar with the lore on the following: Durotar, Draenor, The draenai, Pre horde orcs, Kil'jaeden/the burning legion. Not a bad book, I like how Christie writes about the horde races but she does great work in this with the Draenai too.
