Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
From the world of the incredibly popular Warcraft online role-playing game comes this first manga of a trilogy. The war-torn world of Azeroth is plagued on all sides by evil dragons, power-hungry elves and the armies of the Undead Scourge. Just as a wary peace seems possible, the Sunwell, a source of unimaginable power previously thought to be lost, resurfaces. Kalec, a blue dragon who takes an appealing human form complete with Farrah Fawcett hair, is on a quest to prevent the Sunwell's destructive power from being realized. He is joined by Anveena, a quaint country girl with a world-changing secret. Together they encounter the stock set of fantasy characters: surly dwarves, stupid orcs, rugged warriors and beautiful maidens. There's betrayal, magic and, of course, pages and pages of sword fights. The backstory for the Warcraft world is so complicated it requires eight pages of prose to explain it in brief, and still much of the comic is spent on exposition. This volume manages to be incomprehensibly complicated and yet at the same time insipidly transparent. The art is attractive and easily digested, but the characters and plot are purely cookie-cutter creations. This work will please only hardcore fans of the game. (Apr.)

Interesting story. Definitely caught my attention from the first chapter! I would recommend it to people who are fans of Lord of the Rings and other fantasies, also great fun if you don't mind a little gore.

if you play World of Warcraft you'll love this manga. It takes place in the time period where World of Warcraft takes place (4 years after Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos). Its a very good story but their taking a long time for number 2 to come out.

This manga is awesome! The best part is the dragons! I strongly reccommend this to the dragon fans out there. I also enjoyed how the art was all done in shades of gray and black, never white like the other mangas out there. It was full of action and surprises, both for the characters and for the readers. All in all it was a great read and I am anxiously awaiting the second volume in this series. Can't wait! I wish they would say when it was coming out already. The action in this book is great and there's no nudity like there is in a lot of manga these days-Ew. I mean why do they need to include that? Especially when the manga is supposed to be for girls and boys. This book starts out with the main character (a dragon) being hunted by this angry dwarf guy who's against all dragons because of something that happened in the past. A beautiful maiden rescues him from the clutches of the dwarf and brings him home against the dragon's wishes. The dragon's in this book can assume the shape of a human (or elf), which totally rocks. After that the unlikely pair travel together and meet a strange elven man, out to find the sunwell, which the main dragon is also trying to find. The elf is kind of psychotic man, he is also kinda interesting. You will have to read this book to find out more.
