The last two hours of this book are so damn epic it makes if everything before that seem pretty boring, that's a good thing and a bad thing because the set IS pretty boring.
No to say the first 12 hours are BAD persay just overly drawn out and slow.
I have, Dawn of the Aspects was pretty bad imo. He's redeemed himself with this one though.
Like I've said, the last battle at the end.
Varian Wrynn kicks so much ass in this book that it made him my favorite Warcraft character.
The Last two hours of this book are so damn epic that they alone make it worth the purchase.
If you are into the warcraft lore this is a good book, specially about the worgen intregration to the alliance and Varian Wrynn's connection to Goldrinn. Also, it has good story line about the Ashenvale campaign and great battle descriptions. The duel between Varian Wrynn and Garrosh is really good.
I recommend it to someone that had follow or read Warcraft in general
First and foremost, this narrator was phenomenal. The voices were excellent, particularly for the Worgen. I would place this as my second favorite listening experience, next to Daniel Davis' reading of Star Wars: Darth Plagueis.
Knaak does an amazing job of delivering a great story that completely changed my opinions on Varian Wrynn. Also delivers on a great deal of the Alliance's political dynamic, which was great to experience.
For non-Warcraft fans, this is a great piece of literature, but it is not entirely standalone and, as with most WoW books, functions as an 'inbetween' story for the games.
This was actually one of the better Warcraft stories out there. It begins slow but once the skin of the story has been peeled away, it just screams with intensity.
All of the characters were represented well.
Narrators performance as excellent. Very believable. It seems like he actually did some research before attempting to do the voices for each character.
Great listen, also a great read!
Really enjoyed this audio book. I play a Worgan character in WoW, and it helps a lot with the immersion when you understand the back story.
This is a great fantasy book, even for someone who is not a fan of the game or of Blizzard.
Garrosh Hellscream. Even though e is the bad guy he is still a simply evil character and sometimes a bad guy makes the entire book.
The battle scene that was the true climax of the book, won't go into detail but it gets graphic.
Yes, I went thru it very quickly and had a simply great time enjoying it.
Definitely a must listen for WoW fans.
I really love the game and I'm an avid reader....this book just didn't meet my expectations.
Be prepared for some confusion at the beginning if you're not a WOW lore buff but it's a great book either way. I purchased this book for a long roadtrip with the family. I found myself hoping everyone would fall asleep so I could hear more. It made 13 hours in the care feel like nothing. Well written and well narrated, what more could you ask.
I really enjoyed this book, but it was choppy like other Knaack books. I'm not thrilled with his writing style, but I still enjoyed this book. I tried reading it on my Kindle first and had a hard time getting through it so I thought I'd try the audible version. I was very impressed with the narration and it made the book much more enjoyable. I wish that there were more World of Warcraft books on Audible.
War of the Ancients
Great voices - very easy to figure out who was speaking during lengthy dialogues.
Yes, but no spoilers from me. :)
The wolf snarling noises was fine at first, but then I just found it distracting and a little cheesy. But that is my only complaint of the narrator. He truly did a great job!
I've been a Warcraft fan most of my life however I just couldn't get through this. I'll admit part of it is the voice actor who has done several of the books I own however I think it was mostly just a bad story. I know the character from the games and I really kept thinking I would feel more invested in the story however I just found most of this boring.
