    Disappointing display of warcraft lore

    This review could be summarized in one word: Disappointing. As an enthusiast of the warcraft enterprise, I could not help but purchase this new book. However, I was soon disappointed that this book failed to capture any of the richness of the lore of Warcraft. The first obvious flaw is the unashamed biasness that the story seems to partake in this small war. If one is a firm believer of being partial while reading about war like I am, he would be disgusted to read about the descriptions of the fight. The good guys win the bad guys lose. While that may be a great message to tell the younger audience that justice prevails absolutely, it is an inaccurate portrayal of war. Contrary to what the authors suggest, the Horde is not so inept that they could not even put up a fight which was shown as part of the richness of the original Warcraft Lore. Reading about this war is similar to saying ¿The Japanese lost World War II furthermore, it was fortunate that there was no loss of American lives at Pearl Harbor either.¿ It is simply inaccurate and boring to read over and over in the story. The second major flaw is the lack of character development. Characters felt summarized as the entire story does. All in all, this was simply a disappointment.
