Overview

The Hour of Twilight. She’d spoken of it at the meeting, tried to warn the others of it, but the warning had gotten lost; a little bright fragment of . . . something . . . had been briskly swept away like a broken bit of pottery beneath an industrious broom. It was—

She gnawed her lower lip, thinking.

It was the greatest challenge the dragonflights would face, but she did not know against whom they would be fighting. It might come soon . . . or aeons from now. Could it have something to do with the return of Deathwing? Surely it had to . . . did it not? This breaking of the world was one of the worst things that had ever happened to Azeroth.

How could she persuade others of the direness of the situation when she herself could not articulate it? She uttered a little noise of annoyance and frustration.

One thing she knew for certain. There were many pieces missing from this puzzle, but there was one core piece that was necessary before any of the others could fall into place. It was a very strange piece, an unlikely one at best, and she was uncertain as to how he would fit in. She only knew that he had to.

Ysera had seen him, floating in and out of her dreaming. She had thought she understood his role in things, but now, peculiar as it seemed, something—some inner certainty that even she did not fully understand—was leading her to think she had not seen the full breadth of his contribution to Azeroth.

He was not a dragon. But he had the interests of the dragonflights in his heart—whether he knew it or not. He straddled worlds—but did not seek to rule or command or destroy them. He was unique.

She tilted her head, let the wind play with her long green hair. Perhaps that was why he fit in. Even the Aspects were not singular beings, although each had unique abilities. Not one but five there had been at the beginning, when the titans had come and shared their power for the good of Azeroth. Four there were now, but there would soon be five again, when the blues determined how to choose the one who would lead them.

But there was only one like this being.

There was only one Thrall.

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
