Compelling storyline, well written. Provides a lot more character depth to many of the major Warcraft characters.
The storyline is as good as her previous Warcraft books (she's written 5 other Warcraft titles- unfortunately this is the only one available from Audible!) I think she's the best of the writers for Warcraft books!
The narration was adequate, but could have been better.
If you want war between the Horde and Alliance, you've got it!
Please add more Christie Golden books to Audible, especially her Warcraft books!
Yes. I thought the reader was wonderful. She can't get the low's needed for male orcs - but few can :)
The mana bomb
Jaina and Thrall fighting
Jaina - a woman scorn?
I thought the reader did a wonderful job. I thought the story was great too. It isn't a historical piece of work, but those of you who are fans of world of warcraft, Alliance or Horde, this was a great story - especially before Mists of Pandaria.
This was an enjoyable tie-in novel that is somewhat important for WoW players to read if they truly want to understand the lore, because the game skips over much of this story and jumps to the aftermath. And although the story is enjoyable, the poor narration makes it much better ebook than audio book.
The narrator's normal reading voice was pleasant, but when she got in character to do male voices, it was an unbearable attempt at a deep gravely voice. Orc and Tauren especially sounded like a child's mocking impersonation of an elderly male. I often couldn't tell who was speaking because everyone sounded the same. I don't expect a narrator to have a voice that can truly match every character, but this was hard to listen to. Her normal reading voice would have been much better.
I have read or listened to several Christie Golden books. She is a fantastic author and I strongly suggest her works to anyone interested in the Warcraft universe.
The narrator's attempt to give justice to some of the characters such as Garrosh Hellscream is so feeble, that it is border line hilarious. I have been tempted to skip over the parts where Garrosh is involved but keep listening in fear of missing a plot detail.
Read the book. Skip this particular audio book. The girl, although has a nice voice, she does not do any of the Orc or Tauren characters justice.
Yes, I love to listen while working, it's like doing two things at once.
Oh my, this is a tough question, I really liked the whole story but but better understanding Jaina was well worth it.
One of the weakest I've listened to so far.
"That's it? Really? This is just to tease me into playing the game, isn't it?"
Her male voices--Garrosh's especially--were awful and unappealing. Although I did enjoy her as Jaina, this book would have been better in the hands of someone that could do the deep, booming voices of the Orcs and Tauren.
Not really. There were times that started off as intense, but nothing kept me wanting to listen all the way through.
Although I still enjoyed it, it may be the weakest WoW book so far.
Nothing makes me happier than a lore so in depth. To a point where i lose sense of my own reality. Ive learned a lot more about Jaina in this book than actually playing the game.. and i love the game aswell. very pleased. need more books..
Her voice acting was terrible. The goblins are from Brooklyn and the Tauren seem to be just a bunch of slow humanoids.
I would keep my money and buy the real book
I wasn't sure if I would like this after reading Richard A Knaacks writing which were fantastic but Christine does an awesome job of telling the lore and story of Azeroth. A must read for those looking deeper into the lore.
I love this story, it is well written. The narration was decent, but, the "For the Horde" sounds like a group of angry leprechaun's are going to attack with the heavy Irish accent that she adds to most of the male voices in this story. The males that don't sound Irish talk slowly like they were sired by Mr. Ed.
