For Warcraft Fans:

Garrosh committed some atrocious crimes in the name of his 'True Horde'. As we found at the end of 'Mists', Garrosh was not to be tried by his enemy King Varian, nor by the swiftness of Thrall's (sorry, Go'el...) Doomhammer, but he was to be tried by the people he probably hurt the most; the people of Pandaria.

And tried literally he would be. This book is the story of the trial of Garrosh Hellscream at The Temple of the White Tiger in northern Pandaria. Taran Zhu presides as Judge and the August Celestial's are there to be the jury. Members past and present of the Horde and Alliance are brought to be called as witnesses to the accused crimes, some just to observe but ALL to see Garrosh burn for the things he had done. But as in all things Warcraft, not everything is destined to go to plan...

The writing is supurb. Christie is a master of imagery and understands the personalities of these characters, from Anduin Wrynn's wisdom and purity of heart past his years, to Vol'Jin's quiet power, to Baine Bloodhoof's nobility despite the always great conflicts of heart he faces and Jaina Proudmoore's both heartfelt and powerfully good side, and her seething, bitter, dark hatred of the Son of Grom. Every character is portrayed *exactly* as you imagine them to be... I could go on, but you should have no fear of if Christie has 'got' the characters. She has. She does every time.

Of course there are some interesting side plots, one involving Sylvanas Windrunner and another involving some of some of Garrosh's old buddies conspiring with a certain dragon, but it is the courtroom drama that is front, center and the star of the show here.

Pretty much as I've said above, it was nice to get some real understanding of the thoughts and feelings of some well loved characters however the story itself felt more like a law drama than something set on Azeroth.

I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought, though I was a little disappointed by the ending, not the writing but in the characters themselves though Garrosh kept you guessing for a while

A great book for WoW fans

Great read! Quite different from the other Warcraft books as you get an insight into a range of characters thoughts and feelings from their point of view. The setting is also so different. Rather than traipsing around Azeroth from battle to battle you are in a room with many big lore characters. That does not make it slow paced or boring at all though, the character interaction is great and there is also action involved of course, this is Warcraft after all. Second favourite book after Arthas. Thoroughly recommend!

It's not everyone's cup of tea but I enjoyed it immensely. I'm a huge fan of WoW lore and this did not disappoint. A word of warning to anyone looking to buy a book packed with heavy action and fighting: this is NOT the book for you. The whole book revolves around the trial of Garrosh Hellscream so there is no fighting at all apart from the ending. I'm not ashamed to admit I got a little teary-eyed at some parts, particularly with Baine Bloodhoof's character development. The only criticism I'd give is the weak ending, as I felt that it was a little rushed. Nevertheless, it was a very good read and I enjoyed every moment of it.

To all my fellow WoW gamers who have read this book: I still think Baine Bloodhoof should have become warchief rather than boring old Vol'jin.

I liked this book, but maybe not as much as Christie Golden's other Warcraft works. There's some great moments, and a really touching subplot with Sylvanas and her sister.

However a lot of the book feels like 'here is all the lore and backstory you need to know before the next wow expansion,' and at times it seems like Golden had to stretch the plot to put it in. Other than that, the ending is an amazing moment that I wish was an ingame instance (because I would play the hell out of it) and Golden writes Garrosh really well, I hope she gets to do more books with him in.

War crimes in another World of Warcraft book that covers the time between expansions and this one covers the end of mists of pandaria and towards the start of Warlords of draenor.

Christie Golden is an excellent writer and captures the horde mentality very well and her books are always a pleasure to read, if your a fan of the game then it's a must read but if you don't follow it, then i'd give it a miss, while its a great book, there is just too much pre-knowledge you need for it to make sense

Absolutely terrible book. Makes the most powerful characters in this fantasy world seem like hormonal teenagers. The plot felt forced and illogical, the writing was basic, many boring scenes. If you play the game, may be considering buying this book to keep up with the storyline. It's not worth it. Find out the basic storyline somewhere, and that'll do!
