I play the game and that is what started me reading all the books, since there were previous warcraft games I never played. Malfurion is in the War of the Ancients trilogy, but he really isn't a talked about much afterword. This explains it all, lots of detail about the power of druids, his relatiuonship, and hints upon the next chapter of the world of Azeroth a bit but not too much. Good book.

Setting aside the Warcraft universe, Knaak's work is long, drawn out, bounces around, and doesn't hold the reader as well as other fantasy writers do. If you're a fan of the Warcraft Universe, be prepared for a huge disappointment. Knaak is known for turning heroes that already exist and downplays them so that Knaak's own characters outshine existing characters that are already crucial to the story. These suddenly created characters are so ridiculously powerful that it doesn't even make sense or flow with the rest of the Warcraft Universe. Stick with Christie Golden. At least she (as far as I know) plays the Warcraft games and is familiar with the characters and the story and builds upon what already exists with her own books.

    Good plot, bad style

    First off, I've read all the warcraft novels to date and I have to say this is probably not the best one by Knaak. The plot was good, but I'm not sure how credit I can give him for that since he probably received some ideas from Blizzard to begin with. <BR/><BR/>I used to enjoy Knaak's earlier works such as The Day of the Dragon, even though they were slightly less epic in comparison. The problem I had with this one is the repetition/motifs. I understand that he's trying to establish the gravity of the situation, but repeating the same line about Black Rock Mountain being mysterious 30+(it really feels more than this) times in a novel is not going to work. What more? He uses nearly every character to process this same thought so ever 2-3 pages, you see the same idea again, The mountain is mysterious, dangerous, does not make sense, etc. Time and time again, our heros are about to meet their doom...(-_-)really, you can do better than that.<BR/><BR/>Besides that, the language has been refined very nicely by now. Props to that. As I said, good plot and character development, but the craft is lacking in this one. I want to say I enjoyed reading it, but I can't if each page after halfway through the book makes me want to chuck it at the door for bad writing.
