Publisher's Summary

THE AGE OF DRAGONS IS OVER.

Uncertainty plagues Azeroth’s ancient guardians as they struggle to find a new purpose. This dilemma has hit Kalecgos, youngest of the former Dragon Aspects, especially hard. Having lost his great powers, how can he - or any of his kind - still make a difference in the world?

The answer lies in the distant past, when savage beasts called proto-dragons ruled the skies. Through a mysterious artifact found near the heart of Northrend, Kalecgos witnesses this violent era and the shocking history of the original Aspects: Alexstrasza, Ysera, Malygos, Neltharion, and Nozdormu.

In their most primitive forms, the future protectors of Azeroth must stand united against Galakrond, a bloodthirsty creature that threatens the existence of their race. But did these mere proto-dragons face such a horrific adversary alone, or did an outside force help them? Were they given the strength they would become legendary for . . . or did they earn it with blood? Kalecgos’s discoveries will change everything he knows about the events that led to the...

    "Great story and lore!"
    Would you listen to World of Warcraft again? Why?

    Definitely. It is a world that I have come to love and enjoy and would always appreciate good books to put the world in a broader perspective.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The untold story of the five Aspects.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Kalec was about to witness the titans granting powers to the dragons.


    Any additional comments?

    The tone set by the reader is a bit cumbersome. I had trouble following along but I think he was in the right to have such a mellow tone. It set it up correctly, just was honestly putting me to sleep haha!

    "Very entertaining"

    I had been on a break from playing the game and I decided to listen to this book and I enjoyed it so much that I got back on WoW and I I thought it was neat if you play the game the book mentions your character's or your group's deeds in game so it's kinda making you part of the story and I really liked that but I digress the book was great kept me interested through out the entire book. Scott brick did a great job

    Story
    "First world of Warcraft book (spoilers)"

    I'd like to open by saying I have played wow on and off for several years, although I have not delved to deeply into the lore I can say I have more than"most" players. With that said lets begin.

    Ultimately this story only had a few interesting points, I found myself more interested in the prologue than anything. The just is man has not come to earth yet dragons are the supreme rulers. A much larger dragon begins to terrorize and eat the smaller ones (the aspects). In they end the larger dragon chokes and dies by choking on a large rock.

    Jania proudmoore is slightly involved in this story although mostly felt shoehorned in for fan service.

    In all if you want to know what the "father of dragons" was and the back story of the dragons before they were the defenders of the world pick it up. Otherwise id say there are more interesting Warcraft stories out there and maybe find another.

    "Great Book"

    Richard Knaak doesn't disappoint. I definitely felt like a John Grisham type of novel. If you like those types of books, you will like the WOW version of it.

    "A good one."

    I wouldn't have thought a story about 5 dragons would be as engaging as it was. Scott Brick was phenomenal as usual.

    Story
    "Dragon problems"

    Brick gives another great performance but the substance of the book seems lacking, cuts between present day meddling Jaina and proto dragon olden days are not very well executed and the aspects we know and love have little screen time, just their older proto dragon selves. the dragon fights are okay and the story is consistent enough but there are better settings than Northrend and better warcraft stories about dragons.
