This is great value for the 4 books and don't fear the cheap price does not mean cheap quality, the book is of high quality.
I mainly bought this for the last book 'Of Blood and Honor' (Chris Metzen) as I had already read the others.
'Of Blood and Honor' is an excellent telling of Tirion Fordring's tale and his relationship with a certain orc and the honor that surrounds it. I really empathised with Tirion throughout the book as it deals with his personal struggles and what he knows at heart is right.
You learn about: Tirion Fordring, Taelan Fordring, Paladins, Uther the Lightbringer, Thrall, Eitrigg, Stratholme, Hearthglen + more.
Overall an excellent priced and intersting book!
The first fight against Deathwing, a fresh read for most since Cataclysm just touched again on the black dragon's lore, is top quality, written by the writers of the later Dragonlance books. The narrative is perfect, the story is very envolving and perfect.
The story of Thrall is told brilliantly but also in a very humane way, making it for a true hero's journey. It goes a bit overboard on his Shaman powers when compared to Shamans in game (anybody seen someone shape a mountain with a foot stomp in WoW?), but it's only natural since he's one of the core characters in the Warcraft universe.
Medivh's tower Kharazan is explored in its own volume, and that one is where I take one star out of the entire collection. The story is boring at a lot of times, and overly descriptive at others. I think it might suit some, but not my cup of tea. I honestly stopped reading here and didn't make my way into "Of Blood and Honor", so I won't comment on that one.
All in all, a great novel compendium for fantasy lovers. Would definitely recommend this one over any Game of Thrones book.
The main book and my favorite in this archive is the Day of the Dragon book. Very immersive and gripping.
You'll recognise many names and places in the books from world of warcraft and some which are sadly not in the game.
Examples are for example the main characters in Day of The Dragon, Veerasa and Rhonin can both be found in game in Dalaran.
If you wanna read more about the Warcraft books, i highly recommend this one
The only thing i dislike in Day of the Dragon is the book switches to different characters sometimes, one moment your following the main protaganists then your reading about whats going on elsewhere, which i found got confusing sometimes
The writers are fantastic, they really capture the emotional side of the characters and introduce you to a vivid world and you get to know some of the characters who appear in the later books.
