Over the course of the book, their wariness for Hellscream’s antics is both highlighted and illustrated as frighteningly warranted. It was much more realistic, and none of the characters were safe from dying, just like a fantasy novel should be. His character was so lifelike and so brilliantly constructed, as well as Jaina Proudmoore’s.

Kind of wanted to see the girl kick some ass It could have been left out entirely, and the story still would have remained intact and none the worse for it. This book is awful. Prelude to Cataclysm wasn’t great, riddled as prourmoore was by flaws, but it was better than this. Refresh and try again. She has over a million books in print. And it was unrealistic by fantasy standards.

Ask Baine to join us; I know he has no love for what Garrosh is striving for. Fans of the youn Award-winning author Christie Golden has written over thirty novels and several short stories in the fields of science fiction, fantasy and horror.

I understand the segue between Cataclysm and MOP much better, as well porudmoore the background of the fall of Theramore. Fate of the Jedi: Garrosh Hellscream, brash warmonger pgoudmoore and leader of the Horde, hates the fact that Alliance members live on his continent, which is mostly Horde.


Review of Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War by Christie Golden

Because Thrall told Jaina she needed a man because he was just sooooooo happy with Aggra and giiiirl, you totes need to get yourself a man to take care of you! The grief of a leader whose kingdom is wiped out in an instant, the grief of a woman who sees with stark certainty the pointlessness of the path she’s chosen, the grief of a daughter who finally understands the words of her father, entirely too late to do anything about it. No one calls him out on it though because no one wants to talk to him, ever.

It is really amazing how much better the last few novels have been. What I felt we got were characters that got weaker, weaker plot points, and even weaker conclusions.

The problem lies in the fact that with so many other events going on that the romance was overshadowed. WOW just has a crop of bad ones and Golden is probably the least bad of the bunch. The Focusing Iris was lost on Kalec’s watch in this book. And that’s pretty much the only thing that matters about Vereesa!

August 28, Imprint: This book is canon to the game and it is incredible how well the canon-writing was done. A pretty interesting female character.

Now, the reason I rated it only 4 stars is because I did have some trouble with the book. I remember playing through some of the events in this book, but what really brought it alive for me was the characterization. For a book basically with mandated character development, I liked the beginning and the end way more than the actual character development.

Blizzard and Christie Golden Deliver yet again with this book! Way to go, Jaina. And it’s a story of loss, of grief so utterly overwhelming that it threatens to devour the soul. Though I am still mad for her just disappearing at the start of the Legion expansion while she, one of the most powerful mages alive, could have helped us with the demon invasion across the world big time. The renowned sorceress Lady Jaina Proudmoore has long struggled to improve relations between the Horde and the Alliance.


Taking 40 man raids to pillage a village and take out its leader gives these NPCs high expectations, but as Jaina has multiple major cataclysms all happening at once, the limits of this incredible being gets pushed to its max and we see the peace binding mage go outside her borders as she starts stepping on what she feels, is justice instead of revenge. So you’d think with a plot like that, Jaina and Garrosh end up tangled up in each other, clad in nothing but tattered Horde and Alliance standards.

You can’t blame them. The new World of Warcraft novel, Jaina Proudmoore: The only thing I didn’t like was the author’s repeated use of the word ‘dozen’. It’s still a terrible book though. Tides of War While I may play World of Warcraft off and on, one constant is my interest in the lore behind the game, an interest that extends to pretty much all MMOs I play, in fact.
