Publisher's Summary

An epic action-adventure series set in Blizzard's popular World of Warcraft® game franchise. Features a young cast of characters discovering the mysteries and majesty of the world around them.

It's been years since 12-year-old Aramar Thorne, a clever boy who is never without his precious sketchbook, has seen his father. So when Captain Greydon Thorne comes ashore and asks his son to join him at sea, it feels as if someone has redrawn Aram's entire world. At sea Aram struggles to get along with the Wavestrider's crew - especially second mate Makasa, a tough teenage girl who has been reluctantly placed in charge of him. Just as Aram starts to get his head above water, a band of vicious pirates attack the Wavestrider, turning his world upside down once again. As Aram and Makasa try to find their way home, they encounter creatures both terrible and wondrous, and Aram will seek to understand Azeroth's denizens as he draws them in his sketchbook, forming unlikely friendships along the way. But the journey is hindered by Greydon's compass, which never points north. If the compass isn't leading Aram and Makasa home - to safety - to what destiny is it leading?

Great warcraft story!

This book is awesome. If you're a Warcraft fan I think you will enjoy this story. It's a fun adventure set in the world of Azeroth. The narrator did a great job and the author really seemed to have done his homework. 10/10! Looking forward to the next in the series.

great beginning to a book series.

I love the beginning of the series. But I definitely think that it was written by someone who can see the world cause they played the game. Maybe a little more description, but that's my personal opinion. It is definitely one of my students favorite books. I teach 5th grade.

Surprisingly good story

If you like wow lore and the stories, you will like this story quite a bit. It took some time to get into the beginning but once the story took off it was a well done.

A wonderderful WoW tale set in Vanilla lands.

I really enjoyed revisiting the areas where I leveled as a young Orc so many, many years ago. I like how places and food and beasts in the story made me recall my feelings when first encountering those things. A great read for any Wow fan. Time well spent. You can even listen while grinding out yet another alt in the same areas.

Of special note: the narrator's (Ramon de Ocampo), Murloc voice. Loved it!

Push past the into, it is worth it.

really slow intro, but well worth the wait. After the adventure started I couldn't get enough. Great voice acting from Ramón de Ocampo. Can't wait to get into the next book!

Hit and Miss

As a lomg time fan of World of Warcraft; I enjoyed to listen to this story but it was a bit of hit and miss. While it was easy to distinguish the different characters and races; the narrative suffers with the stoic undertone of the narrator which isn't that attention grabbing.

Great story, great performance, can't wait for 2

Probably the best performance of any warcraft book I've listened to yet! I especially enjoyed how the performer was able to bring murlocs and thier language to life. It was way beyond the simple mrrgklrlglrllglglgl. The inflections in the words that were the same made all the difference!

Loved it!

I thought the story was great! I have been playing Warcraft since Warcraft II days so am aware of lore like a fan boy! However this was a pleasant new story, and easy to listen to while working even.

Character development was awesome! I can't wait for the next ones.

Traveler: World of Warcraft

It's entertaining, joyful and sad. I'm very glad that I bought this Audiobook. It made me smile, made me laugh, made me slightly glum and sad, but by the end, it left me wanting more and anticipating the next installment.

Sound stops with 4 hours to go

I really enjoyed what I heard but the audio just goes silent at around the 4 hours remaining mark. It needs to be fixed.
