    While reading this book, I was taken back to the classic science fiction series Babylon 5, which asks two very basic questions, Who are you and What do you want While Shadows of the Horde asks these questions in different ways, the basic idea is there The book also has the feel of a Kung Fu movie right after the hero has been beaten by the villain for the first time The hero goes to a monastery to heal and become stronger before he can strike at the villain again In many ways this is wh While reading this book, I was taken back to the classic science fiction series Babylon 5, which asks two very basic questions, Who are you and What do you want While Shadows of the Horde asks these questions in different ways, the basic idea is there The book also has the feel of a Kung Fu movie right after the hero has been beaten by the villain for the first time The hero goes to a monastery to heal and become stronger before he can strike at the villain again In many wa...

    Executive Summary I reviewed this for SFF audio I doubt I would have read it otherwise It might appeal to World of Warcraft fans, but probably no one else.Audio book This is the first book I ve listened to by Scott Brick Mr Brick has a good clear voice He also does a pretty good Cajun accent for the trolls My big problem is apart from that everyone sounds the same The Trolls both male and female sounded the same I couldn t really tell apart the human character from the Panderan either Executive Summary I reviewed this for SFF audio I doubt I would have read it otherwise It might appeal to World of Warcraft fans, but probably no one else.Audio book This is the first book I ve listened to by Scott Brick Mr Brick has a good clear voice He also does a pretty good Cajun accent for the trolls My big problem is apart from that everyone sounds the same The Trolls both male and female sounded the same I couldn t re...

    Vol jin The Next Karate Troll WARNING SPOILER ALART With all the juicy drama and tension that has been boiling within the Horde, I couldn t wait to read about Vol jin, the leader of the Darkspear trolls However, it left me disappointed from its lack of any believable tension That s probably the biggest weakness of the book the characters are dull, the tension is dul...

    This was a very different WoW novel than we re used to getting, but Michael A Stackpole is a very different author from Richard Knaak and Christie Golden I ve been a fan of Stackpole since I first picked up X Wing Rogue Squadron back in middle school and, as such, was exceptionally thrilled to see him writing a WoW novel.What we got in Shadows of the Horde was not what I was expecting It was a muchserious, darker toned WoW novel Were there some light hearted moments Absolutely, Chen This was a very different WoW novel than we re used to getting, but Michael A Stackpole is a very different author from Richard Knaak and Christie Golden I ve been a fan of Stackpole since I first picked up X Wing Rogue Squadron back in middle school and, as such, was exceptionally thrilled to see him writing a WoW novel.What we got in Shadows of the Horde was not what I was expecting It was a muchserious, darker toned WoW novel Were there some light hearted moments Absolutely, Chen being the cause of most of them But I loved how this novel looked in depth at the psychology of war scarred veterans, the...

    What the Hell did I just read Honestly, I used to love those books not five years ago, but this was just insufferable drivel from introduction to conclusion And I still love the game, it s not a case of the whole world being uninteresting.First, I think one of the most important things for books based of a video game tv show is to relate to that video game tv show, which isn t the case at all here It s important to bear in mind that this is pretty much the Mist of Pandaria novel, an expans What the Hell did I just read Honestly, I used to love those books not five years ago, but this was just insufferable drivel from introduction to conclusion And I still love the game, it s not a case of the whole world being uninteresting.First, I think one of the most important things for books based of a video ...

    Shadows of the Horde was my very first Warcraft novel and I love it a lot.While the story is mainly focused on Vol jin and his personal struggles, we also got some insights into Chen Stormstout s life Basically, Chen s few chapters are quite calming, sweet and funny which makes an excellent contrast to Vol jin s chapters which are way darker In general, this book was quite dark.You can criticize this novel for not being as action packed as you might be used to from other Warcraft novels But r Shadows of the Horde was my very first Warcraft novel and I love it a lot.While the story is mainly focused on Vol jin and his personal struggles, we also got some insights into Chen Stormstout s life Basically, Chen s few chapters are quite calming, sweet and funny which makes an excellent contrast to Vol jin s chapters which are way darker In general, this book was quite dark.You can criticize this novel for not being as action packed as you might be used to from other Warcraft novels But really, it s not even remotely about all the action The plot itself focuses a lot on Vol jin regaining both his mental and his physical power after the Dagger in the Dark scenario He fights a lot of personal struggles, not sure where he belongs, who he really is and deciding what is right and wrong This book resolves these questions Therefore I felt like this novel was a lot deeper as it wasn t about stuf...

    I ve seen a number of people say that this is a darker toned book than we ve had before Personally, I don t know if I would agree It s certainly not rainbows, kittens, and lollypops But I feel that Jaina Proudmoore Tides of War was a much darker entry in the series.I m starting to think that Blizzard is reaching a point where they can t win in regards to novels People that buy their games, want to play their games They want to be able to take part in major events They want to be able to r I ve seen a number of people say that this is a darker toned book than we ve had before Personally, I don t know if I would agree It s certainly not rainbows, kittens, and lollypops But I feel that Jaina Proudmoore Tides of War was a much darker entry in the series.I m starting to think that Blizzard is reaching a point where they can t win in regards to novels People that buy their games, want to play their games They want to be able to take part in major events They want to be able to remember being involved, and say that my character was there So there have been complaints before made about major events happening only in the books Which leads to this book We come in after a major event has occurred and the book is done before the next major event takes place There is stuff that happens in this novel, but there s no strong connection to anything players of the game are doing Everyt...
