    I do hope that Mr. Stackpole gets another chance to write in this universe

    I've seen a number of people say that this is a darker toned book than we've had before. Personally, I don't know if I would agree. It's certainly not rainbows, kittens, and lollypops. But I feel that Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War was a much darker entry in the series.

    I'm starting to think that Blizzard is reaching a point where they can't win in regards to novels. People that buy their games, want to play their games. They want to be able to take part in major events. They want to be able to remember being involved, and say that "my character was there". So there have been complaints before made about major events happening only in the books. Which leads to this book. We come in after a major event has occurred and the book is done before the next major event takes place. There is stuff that happens in this novel, but there's no strong connection to anything players of the game are doing. Everything that takes place here occurs while someone is off letting the player base know "stuff's going down, we're going to need your help". You don't need to read this book to know what's going on, but at the same time what happens here doesn't seem important enough to make this a must read.

    Maybe it's just that I don't really care for Vol'jin and the trolls. They seem to be the least popular race in the game. So we're going to spend a novel with their leader and learning about their world view. I will say that I liked the pandaren elements more, and hope we get to see Chen as the lead character in a novel at some point.

    And I do hope that Mr. Stackpole gets another chance to write in this universe. Unlike some other authors that have written warcraft novels, it does feel like he's actually spent some time playing the game.

    Horrible

    I usually finish a Warcraft book within days of reading it. Not this one. This book is so slow and uninteresting, I have quit reading it. Do yourself a favor skip this one.

    Not a bad read, should check out.

    I have come to enjoy this book much more than I have anticipated. The love I bore for this story surprised me, I refused to put the nook down for I could not stop reading. If a book makes you this worried about the characters even though you know the out come, well I give much praise and credit to the author. Great story I havr much to reconsider on my interest for the race of pandas and trolls. Since I do play the game the lorr inspires me to continue. Certainly this book has done just that, a few words made me raise my brow on how it was used to describe something but other than that. Great use of vocabulary, I again give many prises and much credit to the author. I recommend people to read in their spare time. Great read.
