I can't think of anything wrong with this.
I listened to this while driving on a long road trip. I actually got to my destination 30 mins prior to novel finishing. So, even after driving 13 hours and coming to my destination, I had to sit there and listen to the rest before going inside. That's how good it is.
The voice is top notch. Not only does he have a wonderful speaking tone, but he makes creative and realistic voices for all the characters. His acting and diction is superb. The little sections of music at the end of each chapter let you know you got a potty break coming up, so the pacing is great too.
The story itself keeps you in it. All the different threads come together in the short, but packed chapters. The ending is satisfying and fist pumping. I love the depth of Warcraft lore and it's real nice to see an alliance focused story. So many of the novels, while good, seem focused on horde. If you have read "War of The Ancients", you will love this as it feels a sequel to that. Though, reading "War of The Ancients" is not required, I'd recommend reading that first just to flesh out some of the peripheral characters. It certainly isn't required for enjoyment of this novel, though. Many of the same characters are here, even a few perfectly placed surprises.
I would and have recommended this book to anyone I end up talking reads with, especially those in game. It grabs you and and takes you for a wild, fun, and stirring ride.
