About the Author
Keith R.A. DeCandido was born and raised in New York City to a family of librarians. He has written over two dozen novels, as well as short stories, nonfiction, eBooks, and comic books, most of them in various media universes, among them Star Trek, World of Warcraft, Starcraft, Marvel Comics, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Serenity, Resident Evil, Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda, Farscape, Xena, and Doctor Who. His original novel Dragon Precinct was published in 2004, and he's also edited several anthologies, among them the award-nominated Imaginings and two Star Trek anthologies. Keith is also a musician, having played percussion for the bands the Don't Quit Your Day Job Players, the Boogie Knights, and the Randy Bandits, as well as several solo acts. In what he laughingly calls his spare time, Keith follows the New York Yankees and practices kenshikai karate. He still lives in New York City with his girlfriend and two insane cats.
Top customer reviews
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.
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.
