    New York Times best-selling author Richard A. Knaak continues the thrilling story begun in the record-breaking MMO game expansion World of Warcraft: Cataclysm in this new audiobook!

    Story

    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.

    The New York Times bestselling author of The Shattering and Thrall: Twilight of the Aspects delivers a sensational tie-in to the newest World of Warcraft game expansion. What does it take to turn the peacekeeper into a warmonger? Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War gives World of Warcraft fans the opportunity to see what happens when a beloved peacekeeper is pressed to the limit by an inconceivable horror. Will it change her forever? Break her? Or redefine her role on Azeroth?

    Gabriel Cersonsky says: "Enjoyable"

    Story

    Christie Golden delivers again. The story was amazing and well written. My problem was with the narrator, Justine Eyre. When she was speaking normally, it was fine. However, she tried to do voices and most of them weren't so great. A few were practically intolerable. If you can get past her trying her hardest to pull off the deep, angry commands of Garrosh Hellscream in what sounds like someone on their death bed groaning and whispering with their tongue tied in knots, then the rest of the book is worth it. Oh, and Shandris Feathermoon sounds so properly old-world British that she should be at a tea party rather than a war council, but alas...

    This is a fantastic book that segues into the conflict proper in the World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria expansion (as in, the game). It doesn't necessarily serve as a great standalone story if you aren't familiar with the game, however. But if you do play and love the lore, read this!

    After discovering a cache of Prothean technology on Mars in 2148, humanity is spreading to the stars---the newest interstellar species, struggling to carve out its place in the greater galactic community. On the edge of colonized space, ship commander and Alliance war hero David Anderson investigates the remains of a top secret military research station---smoking ruins littered with bodies and unanswered questions. Who attacked this post, and for what purpose?

    Story

    This isn't a grand, amazing story. But it is ancillary to the games and provides a lot of back story to some of the characters, notably David Anderson and Saren. Drew Karpyshyn does a fantastic job, as usual. The narration is not exemplary, but it is still very good. If you want more from the Mass Effect universe, give it a listen. If you're not already a fan, you might want to pass.

    Story

    This is, without a doubt, the best audiobook performance I have ever listened to. The voices are amazing and serve to further immerse you in the story, not to mention the ambient background sounds and occasional music.

    Story-wise, you learn about the precursors to Sidious' rise to power, which is awesome and Plagueis is a Sith lord that you grow to love as the story really drives home the Sith as forces that shape the galaxy for the better, despite whatever evil ways they go about it.
