Warcraft: Last Guardian No.3
on 2 November 2007
As a fan of World of Warcraft, I decided to read some of the Warcraft novels to learn some of the background story and lore.
This book was an excellent read! It tells the story of Medivh and the creation of the dark portal from the view of Khadgar, who becomes his apprentice. It shows the gradual decline of Medivh, under Sargeras's malignant domination, until he eventually goes insane.
From a WoW fan's perspective, it's nice to learn about the "Karazhan" instance, and get a glimpse into the background of some of the characters you meet within it's walls. Moroes the Butler is introduced, Nelias Aran is briefly mentioned (as Medivh's father - turns out that although he is incredible powerful, he's a bit of a "himbo"), the Violet Eye and Kirin Tor are present, and there's even clues to be found as to why Illhoof is located in the instance where he is.
All in all, I am very glad I read the book, and can recommend it to fans of the Warcraft world.
