Great for many WoW fans, but let down by poor writing.
on 14 October 2014
For avid WoW lore fans this is probably a great book. However, for a general reader - albeit a fantasy enthusiast - the book is rather poorly written. Unfortunately a lot of fantasy novels seem to fall into this trap of poor writing, being generally buoyed up by the fans' love of the content, and this is no different. I've been told that Christie Golden is one of the better WoW authors, and that may well be the case, but as a standalone piece of writing it's just not up to scratch, in my opinion.
