Highly recommended for current expansion World of Warcraft players
Good book that shares some much needed lore for the current expansion of world of warcraft. Some things that were way to under explained in the book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Not as good as previous efforts by this author in this series.
Not as good as previous efforts by this author in this series. I think we're getting to a point where background information and how it's delivered is starting to be a hindrance to the story. We have characters that have been featured heavily in other novels in the series. They end up in a situation that reminds them of something that happened to them in a past novel. So we get a page or two used to describe what happened in a previous book. That's all fine, and I can see it being useful if your concern is people new to the series just picking up one book and not knowing previous events. But I think it needs some balance. At this point, you can look at a character list for the story and know what flashbacks you're going to get. Oh, it's that blue dragon fellow again. Guess we're going to hear about his lost loved one again. Also, I think this is the first time we've gotten flashbacks of the same event from multiple sources. If it's two characters on different sides of a battle, okay. When it's two characters sharing tea, it may not be necessary.
Also, one of my main complaints with the other writer in this series has been when he's done something in his stories that doesn't work in the rest of the media. It's always felt like the other guy is telling the story he wants to, regardless of how well that story would actually fit into the established setting. Golden's been really good about the story being accurate to the setting. And then the ending of this book happened. Where, to extend a battle sequence, the villains receive unexpected back up. Unexpected in a totally unexplianed, "this happens just deal with it" kind of way. Come on, don't do that. You're better than that.
