Description

After killing the corrupt Warchief Blackhand, Orgrim Doomhammer was quick to seize control over the Orcish Horde. Now he is determined to conquer the rest of Azeroth so that his people will once again have a home of their own in the...

WORLD OF WARCRAFT

Anduin Lothar, former Champion of Stormwind, has left his shattered homeland behind and led his people across the Great Sea to the shores of Lordaeron. There, with the aid of the noble King Terenas, he forges a mighty Alliance with the other human nations. But even that may not be enough to stop the Horde''s merciless onslaught.

Elves, dwarves, and trolls enter the fray as the two emerging factions vie for dominance. Will the valiant Alliance prevail, or will the Horde''s tide of darkness consume the last vestiges of freedom on Azeroth?

For timeline purposes, this book takes place right after the first war between the humans and orcs. This book is the 3rd book you should be reading if you want to go in chronological order. It takes place right after The Last Guardian and you will see more than a few familiar faces carry over from that story. Rosenberg takes the story of the game, Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness and does a solid job of putting it into a novel that serves as a refresher on events that happened years before the setting of World of Warcraft. It also gives you a glimpse into some of the characters that you''ll find in the World of Warcraft and give you an idea why there are statues of some of them outside of Stormwind. Some major characters that appear are Turalyon, Khadgar, Lothar, Doomhammer, Gul''dan, Terenas (Arthas'' dad) and Zul''jin. Even brief appearances by Arthas and Varian. I understand some of the plot holes people complain about are annoying (Distances traveled, some characters, unrealistic strategies, etc.) but I got what I expected and enjoyed it. If you''re looking for the proper order to read the Warcraft books I suggest the following:

Rise of the Horde (book) - Covers approx. a 10 year period prior to WC I.

The Last Guardian (book) - Touches on the closing days of the First War with bookends set prior to WC III.

Tides of Darkness (book) - Covers WC II in continuity.

Beyond the Dark Portal (book) - Covers WC II expansion in continuity.

Day of the Dragon (book) - Wraps up some dangling threads from WC II with Deathwing and the Red Dragonflight.

Lord of the Clans (book) - Covers a wide swath from just before WC II all the way to prior to WC III. Should be subtitled All You Wanted to Know About Thrall But Were Too Much of An Alliance Lover to Ask. ;) J/k.

Of Blood and Honor (book) - Set just prior to WC III.

Warcraft III Battle Chest (game) - Reign of Chaos covers the origin of the Scourge and the return of the Burning Legion. The Frozen Throne covers the exile of Illidun, the rise of the Forsaken and the crowning of a new Lich King. Founding of Durotar covers the most recent conflict between Horde and humans prior to WoW.

Arthas: Rise of the Lich King (book) - Recaps material from Tides of Darkness all the way up until the end of Frozen Throne with bookends just before the WotLK cinematic.

Ashbringer (comic) - Covers the fallout from Arthas dissolving the Order of the Silver Hand and the rise of Argent Dawn and Crimson Crusade.

Cycle of Hatred (book) - Picks up after Founding of Durotar and begins to set the stage for WoW Vanilla.

Well of Eternity (book) - Try and follow: characters from current Azeroth are sent back to the War of the Ancients 10,000 years before by the Bronze Dragonflight to make sure what was supposed to happen happens. Part of War of the Ancients Trilogy

Demon Soul (book) - See above, part of War of the Ancients Trilogy.

The Sundering (book) - See above, part of War of the Ancients Trilogy.

Warcraft: The Sunwell Trilogy (Comic) - This is just before WoW vanilla since some Horde holdings (Tauren Mill) are still Alliance held. Sets up Kalygos and his motivations mostly.

Warcraft Legends Vol. 1-5 (Comic) - These are all over the place, but primarily just before WoW Vanilla with some flashback stuff.

The Dragons of Outland (Comic) - Trilogy set between Vanilla and TBC. Running a bit late, second volume should be out later this year.

World of Warcraft Books 1-4 (comics) - Set between TBC and WotLK, covers a lot of plot spillover. Ever why the Missing Diplomat questchain ends so quickly in Thereamore? The answer is here.

Death Knight (comic) - Set before and during WotLK. Sets up Thassarian.

Mage (comic) - Set before WotLK. Sets up why Dalaran is a floating city over Northrend.

Night of the Dragon (book) - Set before WotLK, deals with some stuff spilling out of TBC, especially dealing with Kalygos and the two new dragonflights in Outland.

Stormrage (book) Set after WotLK. Sets up Malfurian Stormrage and Tyrande and the status of the Emerald Dream corruption.

Shaman (comic) - Set between WotLK and Cata.

The Shattering (book) - Covers all the details between WotLK and Cata that were going on while we were doing the pre-launch events.

Wolfheart (book) - Details the Worgen and Gilneas'' recruitment into the Alliance after the Cataclysm.

Thrall: Twilight of the Aspects (book) - follows the former War Chief of the Horde as he struggles with the ongoing repercussions of the Cataclysm.

Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War - The ashes of the Cataclysm have settled across Azeroth’s disparate kingdoms. As the broken world recovers from the disaster, the renowned sorceress Lady Jaina Proudmoore continues her long struggle to mend relations between the Horde and the Alliance.

Dawn of the Aspects - The former Dragon Aspects are on the brink of going their separate ways to forge new destinies...

Vol''Jin: Shadows of the Horde - Follows Vol''Jin as he travels to Pandaria, where the troll chieftain''s loyalties are put to the ultimate test when a member of his own faction moves to assassinate him. . . .

War Crimes - Centers around Garrosh Hellscream after the Siege of Orgrimmar. It provides a bridge between the events at the end of the Mists of Pandaria expansion and the upcoming Warlords of Draenor expansion.

Hope this helped i tried my best to get it right but as always there may be some mistakes just try to look into it on wowwiki or wowpedia. Special Thanks to Kordd on the battle.net forums for creating the original part of the list.

Good lore to catch you up on Azeroth''s history, but it should be called World of Grincraft. Seriously, this author is in love with the word "grin", which is used WAY to often, and in places it''s neither realistic nor appropriate. That being said, if you get around his overuse of the word (which is really hard to do after the hundredth use of the word, it is a pretty good story.

After a big night at the casino, I picked up nearly every full length novel from the Warcraft series (WotA Trilogy, Warcraft Archive, Tides, Dark Portal, Rise of the Horde, etc.) and decided to read them in chronological order. The second war is by a long shot my favorite part of Warcraft lore, and while I started playing in Warcraft: Orcs vs. Humans, Warcraft II was really what got me into the universe.

For that reason, I was absurdly excited when I finally made it up to this book, only go have my world crushed. Overall the writing is clumsy and amateur, and while I was plowing through a Warcraft book every few days, this one stopped me cold for nearly a month. It never felt engaging, and the relationships between characters (that are already well known and have established relationships mind you) felt forced and awkward. Half the book seemed to be filled with repeated description that felt out of place (a fun game to play would be to count the number of times the author mentions Alleria raising her bow in a salute...), and the story never really takes hold.

If anything, I dislike Turalyon because he comes off as a whiney wimp after reading this story, and I personally feel the author demolishes the reputation of Doomhammer within this novel.

Overall, its a long series of "meh" that leads to an anti-climax. Yes, it is a retelling of the second war, I guess you can''t knock it for that, but I''d only recommend this book as a rental, and only if you like this part of Warcraft lore enough to struggle through this book... I did, I do, but I still say use caution. I''d probably like it better if I was younger, or if I was going back to catch up on history and had only started in the Warcraft universe at WoW, but because I''m not a kid and I''ve been there since the beginning this book let me down.

If you''re interested in Warcraft lore then this book isn''t too bad. The writing is very average, and the text is riddled with missing words and errors. In addition, the word "grin" was used so many times that I''ve come to despise the word. I did a search and the word appeared almost 100 times in the book''s 370 pages. That''s way too many. The pacing is poor, with battles happening out of nowhere, and the characters are very flat. They don''t grow on you and you don''t care about them, nor does Rosenberg provide you with a reason to do so.

Still, I was entertained by the book and enjoyed seeing familiar lore characters and locations. It was interesting to see how events played out in further detail, even if that detail was written at a middle school level. If you''re interested in Warcraft and don''t know much about the events of the Second War, then I recommend this book. Otherwise, you can skip it.

This book also introduces Turalyon and his ascension into becoming a hero. Well written and definitely entertaining. Also a good source for lore if you''ve never played WC2 and wanted to know what was going on when it was originally orcs and humans with allies adding to the mix. Good read overall.

I don''t know if it is because it is an adaptation of the game or just the way it was written, but every battle is extremely abrupt. No matter what side is winning, something amazing suddenly happens that turns the tide and the battle is over.
Also, the romance between Alleria and Turalyon was completely pointless and out of place.

I very much enjoyed this book.

For an old book it was in a fairly good state! Only down-side, I would say is that the book had been slightly turned damp and so the cover gave off a little. So maybe try and fix something water-resistant.. Other then that, book intact, quick shipping, goodtimes!
