Publisher's Summary

In the mist-shrouded haze of the past, the world of Azeroth teemed with wondrous creatures of every kind. Mysterious Elves and hardy Dwarves walked among tribes of Man in relative peace and harmony - until the arrival of the demonic army known as the Burning Legion shattered the world's tranquility forever. Now Orcs, Dragons, Goblins, and Trolls all vie for supremacy over the scattered, warring kingdoms - part of a grand, malevolent scheme that will determine the fate of the world of Warcraft. 

Slave. Gladiator. Shaman. Warchief. The enigmatic Orc known as Thrall has been all of these. Raised from infancy by cruel human masters who sought to mold him into their perfect pawn, Thrall was driven by both the savagery in his heart and the cunning of his upbringing to pursue a destiny he was only beginning to understand to break his bondage and rediscover the ancient traditions of his people. Now the tumultuous tale of his life's journey - a saga of honor, hatred, and hope - can at last be told....

Excellent pre-Warcraft3 material

This is a fantastic book by a very talented author and now narrator. People in other reviews have said they don’t like a girl playing the male voices but I believe they are missing the amazing skill Christie Golden has at conveying emotion. She is a great narrator, and I look forward to future audiobooks.

Another great story.

Having always been for the Horde, I love the background stories. Story itself is amazing and beautiful. Only complaint is the reading. Normally when read by the author the true emotions are given, but here I feel she struggled through some of it. Do not let that deter you from this though. The story must be told.

What an amazing experience

Christie wrote a fantastic book, as is all her other installments. The ability to listen to her narrate her own masterpiece is truly special. she understands the characters, understands their plight, so you really feel the passion come out in her words. thank you Christie for this opportunity.

Needed a different narrator

I love the story of Thrall. The narration is tough to listen to at first but gets better as the story progresses. The orcs needed a deep male voice to portray them but Christie Golden does okay.

A unmissable part of Warcrafts lore

I've been waiting for this book to appear on Audible for some time. My wife read the original (Christie Golden) book a fair few years back and couldn't sing its praises loud enough. Now I can say I really wasn't let down as Christie narrates her own classic about the genesis of one of Warcraft most important figures.
