Publisher's Summary

Behind the legend stands an individual hungry for justice and vengeance - as the adventure, intrigue, and heroism of World of Warcraft rise to a new level.

You are not prepared.

Illidan Stormrage is one of the most powerful beings ever to walk the lands of Azeroth. He is also one of the least understood. Behind his legend, beneath his enigmatic mission, lies a brilliant mind whose machinations are comprehended by few - and trusted by even fewer. Illidan's righteous reign of justice and vengeance has begun.

Long ago, the night elf sorcerer Illidan infiltrated the demonic Burning Legion to ward off its invasion of Azeroth. Instead of hailing him as a hero, his own kind branded him the Betrayer, questioning his intentions after he appeared to aid the demon lords. For 10,000 years he languished in prison - vilified, isolated, but never forgetting his purpose.

Now the Legion has returned, and there is only one champion who can truly stand against it. Released from his bonds, Illidan prepares for the final confrontation in the alien realm of Outland, gathering an army of grotesque fel orcs, serpentine naga, cunning blood elves, and twisted demon hunters to his side. He alone knows what deeply hidden motives guide his hand; he alone understands the price that must be paid to defeat the enemies of creation. Yet as before, he is assailed by those who see his schemes as a cynical quest for power, including the night elf Maiev Shadowsong, his former jailor. Warden Shadowsong and her Watchers have pursued the Betrayer to Outland to exact retribution for his crimes, and she will not rest until Illidan is in her custody...or in his grave.

    "A Great Listen for WoW Players!"

    You'll never look at the Burning Crusade the same way again! It truly puts the expansion, the threat and Illidan's actions into perspective. A Great way to get prepared for Legion!

    Story
    "Good lore and unaccounted events explained"

    The book takes us into the mind of illidan and several other characters of note, some new some familiar. I enjoyed the music from Warcraft at the start of certain chapters for an all too familiar sense of immersion. Many parts of the story play out as one will remember if they played WoW, but the filling in the gaps was very well done. Many unaccounted for events were expanded upon which seem like they will be explained in the legion expansion.

    If you enjoy Warcraft lore you will like this novel.

    "Excellent story and anexcellent voice performance."
    What did you love best about Illidan: World of Warcraft?

    It was compelling and I couldn't stop listening almost from the very start.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Illidan of course. I've always hated that his story went south. He wasn't the ideal guy and didn't always have the best motivations but he did try to make things right when he learned the truth of the Burning Legion. I can't wait to see how this plays out in the next expansion and beyond. Also, please Blizzard, please have William King write more books. I was uncertain about a new author but have been bored with Knaak for a while. King is such a great story teller and a breath of fresh air. Please let him do more.


    What does Graeme Malcolm bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He did a great job. He didn't try to pitch his voice to sound feminine or to do a voice that was outside of his natural range, which always annoys me with other voice actors. I felt the whole time as if I was just sitting and listening to a great story teller unraveling a tale. I loved every minute of his delivery.

    Story
    "Thank god its not Scott Brick (sorry Scott Brick)"
    What made the experience of listening to Illidan: World of Warcraft the most enjoyable?

    the Narrator was pretty nice, I haven't heard them on anything else, but would love to hear more from Graeme. I have grown so tired of listening to Scott Brick whine about things (no offense Scott, you have a great voice and give a great performance, but it sounds whiny to me)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Illidan: World of Warcraft?

    Oh goodness that ending!


    Have you listened to any of Graeme Malcolm’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    nope, but will seek him out now


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    the ending yo!


    Any additional comments?

    Its a Warcraft Book, better than Dawn of the Aspects, not as good as Arthas. In the same way bacon is better than ham, but not as good as steak.

    Great Story line that follows Illidans Trails in outland. Explains a lot that you may miss while playing WoW.

    "Amazing"

    The team behind this book nailed it spot on. Between the narration, style, little tidbits of ambient music at the start of the chapters, these guys have done so good.
    I loved this book, the story was so great, it makes you feel for each of the characters, the good and 'bad' ones. As much as I loved the Warcraft movie, I feel like this story would have made a much better movie.
    If you enjoy Warcraft, and the lore, pick this up as soon as you can!

    "Amazing novel for Warcraft fans"

    This novel was great, especially for fans of the Burning Crusade and the new Legion expansion. It really filled in the gaps of the lore in Outland. Every character is fleshed out and believable.

    The narrator did a great job with giving life to the story and characters, especially with the voices of Illidan and Akama.

    "Felt like I was reading black temple. However..."

    Not much new information was gleamed on illidan. I wanted to find out what he did after black temple. It does tou H on that but only barely.
