Overview

World of Warcraft: Rise of the Horde by Christie Golden

Though the young Warchief Thrall ended the demon curse that had plagued his people for generations, the orcs still wrestle with the sins of their bloody past. As the rampaging Horde, they waged a number of devastating wars against their perennial enemy — the Alliance. Yet the rage and bloodlust that drove the orcs to destroy everything in their path nearly consumed them as well.

Long ago, on the idyllic world of Draenor, the noble orc clans lived in relative peace with their enigmatic neighbors, the draenei. But the nefarious agents of the Burning Legion had other plans for both of the unsuspecting races. The demon-lord Kil'jaeden set in motion a dark chain of events that would succeed not only in eradicating the draenei, but forging the orc clans into an single, unstoppable juggernaut of hatred and destruction.

Christie golden does an amazing job at telling the story of the birth of the horde. The horde before the tauren and the trolls and the like the horde as it was in its earliest stage when it consisted of only orcs. And explains how this early horde arrives in azeroth. It is definantly a great read which i reccomend

I bought the book and was expecting it to be a lil lame, but this book not only made me want to get warcraft for my PC but to buy the other books. This book was one of the best books I ever read, it keeps you interested in it and you wont ever want to put it down. I highly recomend this book to people who like the game or just like a lil fantasy book. hope you enjoy the book. This is your buddy SilverWolf, ENJOY!!!

I actually just got into reading recently with the warcraft archive and i am as my title states a horde supporter and prefer reading the lore from the hordes side and particularly thrall and his families story, it was hard for me to find the best set of books just including those stories without all the lame alliance parts, and i would recommend rise of the horde which follows thralls father durotan through what made the horde come to be followed by lord of the clans which is thralls birth to warchief story followed by the shattering and finally thrall: twilight of the aspects to see a solid storyline develop that makes the game so much more enjoyable. I am currently on the shattering and am very impressed with christie goldens writing i love these books and the game and you should definitly read them, they are good enought inspire a nonreader to buy a nook and all the books and read them almost nonstop this book in particular was one of my faves

Christie Golden has done it again by producing another outstandingly well written book in the Warcraft universe. She does a great job developing the characters (the friendship between Doomhammer and Durotan is an excellent example), advancing the plot at a steady pace, and her writing style is refreshnig to read in comparsion to other Warcraft authors. All in all, an excellent, highly recommended book whose style other Warcraft authors (Aaron Rosenberg in particular) would do well to take notice of.

This was deffinately a different book of the Warcraft series considering the fact it was the first book in this series to include the draenei and their history. Most of the book had vivid descriptions conjuring up such mental images as if vicariously being there. Where the draenei lived wasn't described well enough, though. Overall, I really did enjoy this book and would recommend it to all World Of Warcraft players or someone who would just like to read an all around great novel.

This was my first book in the WoW franchise and I plan to read all the rest of Christie Golden's books. I chose this one at random in anticipation of the new expansion, Warlords of Draenor, and I hit the jackpot. The story in this book mirrors a lot of quest lines in the expansion and Golden does an excellent job of breathing even more life into these characters' stories than we get in the game! I would recommend this to anyone more interested in the lore of the game.

Golden is truly that - golden! This book is a fantastic read. A It's all about the orcs, draenei, and Kil'Jaeden in the outlands before the orcs left. A must read for any WoW fan, whether you play Alliance or Horde.

I've loved Warcraft games from the Warcraft: Orc vs Humans to World of Warcraft. This book helped me gain a grasp for how the orcs were once a peacful people with no real hatred in them except maybe rivaly with one another. Then goes on to show how a simple people can be manipulated into something far worse then what they could have imagined. Through the tail we see that when people in power become corrupted they can spread that corruption to those that follow them. It also shows how ones resolve can help them weather that corrpution when they know its their but can not stem it from spreading. By far it was a very enjoyable read and would recomend it to all.
