Keys to inner space yHorde over theears but I still like Horde better Thrall is probably my favorite character of the series and I was really annoyed when he stepped down as Warchief However as an Alliance player I enjoyed being able to work with him on uests in Cataclysm I found myself really not liking many of the Alliance characters in this book In particular Tyrande Whisperwind As my main character is a Night Elf I was pretty disappointed with her I found myself rooting for Baine Bloodhoof and missing my Tauren druid insteadI liked the notion of a trial and the involvement of the Bronze Dragons to present key moments in Warcraft lore not only for the current
expansion but back events involving the history of the OrcsOverall I found this but back events involving the history of
The OrcsOverall I Found This A Lot OrcsOverall I found this a lot than Vol jin Shadows of the Horde I think this is one that Warcraft players will enjoy but that probably won t offer much to everyone elseIf the goal of this book was to get the reader to want to play the game they succeeded I was already planning on picking up the next expansion and playing again for awhile but now I m itching to maybe try to do the raid that serves as background for this so Mission Accomplished Blizzard I finally got around to reading this and I just have to get it out of the way and say it s amazingWhenever someone asks me for fantasy recommendations I try to remember to recommend the Warcraft series I suppose it helps that I ve played the games all the way back since the beginning of the real time strategy games because it means that I know a lot of the lore and history of the universe and recognize the characters But even without that I think any
lover would enjoy WarcraftIt s just so vast There s than two decades of building here with plots subplots and histories running deeper than Winner Takes All you can imagine Nearly all of it focuses on the conflict between the races of the Horde orcs trolls and tauren among others and the Alliance humans dwarves and elves to name a few It s amazingThis book reads like a fantasy version of 12 Angry Men when the orc and former warchief Garrosh Hellscream is put on trial for multiple counts of various crimes Both the Horde and Alliance gather to take part in the trial which is led by the Pandaren both to accuse him and to defend him which might turn out to be the difficult taskI ve sinced stopped playing Warcraft for now but the events in this book were some of the last I enjoyed which happen between the end of the Pandaria expansion and the beginning of the Warlords of Draenor and it s amazing to read this as a sort of behind the scenes kind of thingAs per usual Golden Christie s writing is amazing By far my favorite Warcraft author not doubt You ll want to keep reading both for the fascinating trial but also for all the intricate character developmentou experience along the way I think this might be my favorite book after ArthasHighly recommened for any Warcraft or fantasy fan There are likely a number of folks who are going to look at Christie Golden s latest novel entry and write it off as an episode of Law and Order with tauren and dragons in it So let s get a couple things out To relive painful memories and even uestion their own innocence or guilt For others the chilling details stoke the flames of their hatred Unbeknownst to anyone shadowy forces are at work on Azeroth threatening not only the court's ability to mete out justice but also the lives of everyone at the tria.

My Favorites Games Becausefavorites games because loved the big name characters and the lore they ve built up It doesn t always make sense but it s usually a whole lot of funThis book is full of all the major players from both factions and everyone is angry I ve probably played Alliance than. He will stand trial for his transgressions Renowned leaders from across the world have gathered to witness this historic event As the trial unfolds agents of the bronze dragonflight present shocking visions of Garrosh's atrocities For many of those in attendance these glimpses into history force them. Vol jin Shadows of the Horde World of Warcraft 12 Michael A Stackpole I would start this review with an admission this is a case where I feel Goodreads does its volunteer reviewers
a disservice by not offering the ability to use half stars in one s rating Typicallydisservice by not offering the ability to use half stars in one s rating Typically can work around this limitation by rounding up or down depending on my overall feeling of the work in review but here the subtraction or addition of an entire star would be respectively either an insult to the uality of the book or a well intended lie on my partDispensing with that external cri As a world of warcraft nerd this is probably the best warcraft novel I ve read I haven t read that many but still It gives face time to all of the racial leaders apart from Blood Elves who were notable absent I mean the guy had a single line but then literally never got mentioned again Very odd for one of the most highly played races but oh wellIf ou re not into warcraft there s no real reason to read this book and if Firmin you know absolutely nothing of warcraft then I imagine this would be highly confusing This is a World of Warcraft courtroom drama It s played entirely serious Now either this is awesome and hilarious at once or it s suspension of disbelief breaking I lean toward the former than the latter Does it make sense that Baine Bloodhoof and Tyrande Whisperwind have either the training or formal speech patterns of a trial lawyer No Does it make sense that Azeroth has any of the legal traditions of a modern Western trial I dunno does it make sense Gnomes can build rocket trains No but we love them anyway Lastly is it fun Yes very much so Which is bizarre because thi Best WoW novelet It had a wonderful taste of WoW s past with a fascinating examination of the current climate of Azeroth and Pandaria We got to see some characters we haven t really had a chance to spend time with and Anduin becomes and someone I like reading about and less that little kid next to Varian in Stormwind The courtroom section of it is tense smart and absolutely gripping this is a must read for WoW
Players And I Think Even Non Azerothians Will Find Somethingand I think even non Azerothians will find something enjoy here War Crimes is the thirteenth book in the World of Warcraft novel franchise transitioning us from the Mists of Pandaria expansion to Warlords of Draenor Lore wise this takes place after the the Siege of Orgrimmar after the Alliance Horde and Pandaren have united to defeat Garrosh after he has poisoned the Vale of Eternal Blossoms a place that was not even open to the world until recently Before and After Vale of Eternal Blossoms Credit Tenton HammerAnd this is why the Horde can t have nice thingsWarning Spoilers aheadIt s a bit awkward reviewing a novel for a game franchise particularly since it can be hard to tell where Golden s influence ends and where the story developers begins in terms of allotting credit good or bad to story decisions For the purposes of this review I will just refer to Christie Golden as the author responsible for the story decisions in the novel Garrosh s Defense The Job That No One Wants After the defeat of Garrosh Hellscream he stands trial in a Pandare. Alliance and Horde forces have stripped Garrosh Hellscream one of the most reviled figures on Azeroth of his title as warchief His thirst for conuest devastated cities nearly tore the Horde apart and destroyed countless lives throughout theWORLD OF WARCRAFT® Now on the legendary continent of Pandaria.
