I could not put thus book down. Explains a ton of the lore going on behind the scenes just before the latest patch, The Hour of Twilight. I recommend reading The Shattering first.

As a veteran wow player, the lore is spot on as always. As a reader, the descriptive nature of everything will even let people who have never played paint an image of the malestrom and Wyrmrest temple in their minds. Christie Golden has th ability to capture the emotions of the characters we know and breathe a bit of life into them that is not even given in the games. Can't wait for her next one!

Every single time Christie Golden writes in the world of WoW, she puts you right there in the mix of it all. In "Thrall" she takes an iconic character and makes him even more of an actual person, who takes the world on his shoulders. Great book, great author.

The Titans imbued different Aspects of their power into the five Dragonflights with the mission to protect Azeroth. The Dragonflights worked cohesively until the Black Neltarion/Deathwing turned against his comrades and threatened the world with the Cataclysm that at Maelstrom is ripping apart Azeroth. As the shaman try to prevent the end, one of them Thrall the former Horde warchief struggles to focus on the current Cataclysm. Ysera the Awakened Green Dragonflight is frustrated as she is unable to tell her three comrades (Malygos the Spellweaver Blue, Alexstrasza the Life Binder Red and Nozdormu the Timeless Bronze) that she envisions the final catastrophe; but is unsure of when as what she vaguely sees may be aeons in the future. She senses a special shaman so she assigns a trivial task for this Thrall to accomplish. He journeys from Maelstrom to Feralas on Kalimdo and from there on places on this island. Finally he goes on to Nexus on the island of Northrend. His seemingly insignificant trek leads Thrall to understand how the Dragonflights became distrusting of one another and a biological weapon of total extinction is being deployed by Deathwing. The life of a planet is at stake unless he can lead a counterattack. This is a fascinating fast-paced World of Warcraft epic fantasy. The story line enables the reader to see much of the world through Thrall and learns the different skills possessed by the Dragonflights. However, the faster than the speed of light plotting impedes the character development of the Dragonflights or that of the protagonist. Still fans of the World of Warcraft will appreciate Thrall's adventure to protect the four Dragonflights adhering to their mission in order to save Azeroth. Harriet Klausner
