Having read Richard A. Knaak's Moon of the Spider book, in my opinion a wonderful read, I was looking much forward to reading his Stormrage. The book being about the impressive night elves and their headstrong leaders Malfurion Stormrage and Tyrande Whisperwind, I imagined to dig into some powerful writing, but was, unfortunately, let down. The book feels costly rushed and the strong characters seem vague and ill-described. While A. Knaak manages to maintain a comfortable pace of storytelling, I miss some detail and feeling. It feels shallow and almost as if A. Knaak is not interested in Malfurion's tale, and that is a big shame. The book is interesting, and it would be a shame and a lie to say I did not enjoy reading it. Had it been probably 100 or maybe less pages longer, I could have enjoyed it more. Such characters and such tales of fright just need more attention. It wasn't one of those books I just couldn't put down, but that being said, it was well worth my time and especially the last part of the book was interesting.
If you are a fan of the warcraft universe, the book is worthy of a read (:
