This was an awesome story and I thought the performance of the narrator was good, but I could not help but cringe every time she attempted to do a male voice and the when she also said the word "horde" in her "male" voice. However I thought the rest of her narrative to be very good. This book should not be missed by any Warcraft fan. Heck, even if you never played warcraft get into this lore because you won't regret it.
The story is good and exciting, this is a good warcraft book.
How ever the female voice actor was horrible at doing the voices of male characters, the horde characters especaly was laughably bad voice acted. every male character that was introduced i was 100% sure it was a female if they where not named during the first line. I belive the vol'jin voice was the worst. however i must also add that the voice actor was really good at the female characters.
The bad male voices really put me off early in the story. but once i got over how bad it was the story was really good and entertaining.
I really felt the emotions the author was trying to elicit in this book. It was very well written and the characters felt like themselves.
The performer was spot on with the female characters, although the males were a bit lacking.
If you imagine 300 lb muscular orcs sounding like withered old crones, then this reading of this book is for you. It killed my immersion completely, though.

As a player for many years, this book allowed me to delve more into the lore of the game. I found the listening experience highly enjoyable and will look for more!
