Publisher's Summary

In the first chapter of this epic trilogy, the outcome of the historic War of the Ancients is forever altered by the arrival of three time-lost heroes: Krasus, the dragon mage whose great power and memories of the ancient conflict have inexplicably diminished; the human wizard Rhonin, whose thoughts are divided between his family and the seductive source of his now-growing power; and Broxigar, a weathered orc veteran who seeks a glorious death in combat. 

But unless these unlikely allies can convince the demigod, Cenarius, and the untrusting night elves of their queen's treachery, the burning Legion's gateway into Azeroth will open anew. And this time - the struggles of the past may well spill over into the future....

Waiting to buy number 2 and 3

If you are reading this review you have probably read others in the series. De Ocampo is fantastic as a narrator and excels as the voices of demons. worth 5 stars in all categories for the good feels.

Story is good but you have to know and love the characters to have full enjoyment.

A fantastic read for anyone in love with the lore

As the title says, this book is fantastic. From a great performance by Ramon De Ocampo to a brilliant story by Knaak, you'll find it flies by. It is one of the most iconic stories from Azeroth and it holds up well to this day.

Be aware!

The three first books are excellent. Well written and performed, a treat indeed.
But you should be aware that once the fourth book comes around, they change author and reader, and it's not really great at all.
I think it was a big mistake not keeping the same author and reader, as the listener now have gotten used to certain voices on characters, which helps a lot when listening. Suddenly you have a female reader at book four, and she is not as passionate about it. Not that im saying that a female reader is bad, but once you've gotten used to 30 hours + of ones voice who put at least some feeling into it, it's hard to re-adapt.

Finally a audio version!

I was so excited to see that this was finally available on Audible. Great story that ties so many different Warcraft story lines and characters together. Can't wait for Part 2 and 3 to be released on Audible.

this is by far my favorite world of Warcraft book

the story was perfect it didn't bounce all over the place like some of the other books. the narrator did an amazing job very easy to listen to. of all the audio books in the world I've went through so far this is my favorite.

Excellent work by Ramon De Ocampo yet again

The only problem now, is that we have to wait for part two to be released! Hopefully Ramon narrates that as well.

An intro that doesn't grip

This book is... ok. and that's about it, it lacks any forms of nuance or intrigue. Almost the entire book is a set up for a trilogy, except the very end when it just barely starts to get interesting (otherwise I think I would have rated it lower). It stinks because if you are interested in WoW lore, this trilogy is a must read, I would rather though if they shortened how much it trudged on for too long to reach that "trilogy" length.

An excellent audiobook experience

I'm writing this review for the entire trilogy rather than for individual books -- The whole story is quite consistent in writing and performance. Any fan of the WarCraft universe will be able to appreciate all of the context and perspective that the War of the Ancients trilogy brings to it. It fills in some gaps in a handful of characters' origin stories and personalities as well as the general feel of the relationships between the races of Azeroth's earlier eras. These books are no masterclass in amazing writing, but they simply don't need to be; they mostly only serve to flesh out lore that you may already know with some specifics. One small nitpick I have to offer is that Richard Knaak has a very repetitive writing style. You'll no doubt notice that certain words and terms are repeated constantly throughout this trilogy, to the point where I have to wonder if the editing process of this book was rushed. Get ready to constantly hear terms such as: materialize, "It was all he/she could do", former, latter, visage, countenance, orbs (referring to one's eyes), scores, myriad, sinew, etc. Maybe it's a dumb thing to nitpick about, but the frequency of these words definitely did sometimes distract me from the story. It could possibly be that Richard's tendency to overuse some terms is at least in part because it was meant for this trilogy to be written in a certain 'fancy' writing style. I couldn't know whether or not this was an intentional thing, but the writing style definitely does seem appropriate for the story's ancient and epic setting. It almost feels somewhat reminiscent of H.P. Lovecraft's more convoluted classical style of writing, while being quite a bit easier to digest. I'm sure there's a much better comparison out there, but I'm not well-read enough to know one. By the end of the trilogy, I've started feeling that the writing style is very repetitive in a much broader sense as well. Maybe it's something that couldn't be avoided, as the book explores the entire War of the Ancients and needed to give us a sense of what all the characters had been through. There are MANY scenes in this trilogy which are all essentially the same (mostly combat scenes), just with different antagonists and protagonists. after all was said and done, I had more than my fill of scenes that describe each character's fighting style. Easily one of the greatest highlights of this trilogy is Ramon de Ocampo's performance. With every new character introduced in the story, I've grown more impressed with the scope of his voice acting, especially as the races with accents emerged. The first thing that caught my attention was that his depiction of female characters is actually very feminine. It was so jarring and even slightly uncomfortable to hear a male voice actor suddenly start channeling a borderline convincing feminine voice, I almost disliked it at first. But as time went on and I realized how many different voices he had to match the personalities of characters encountered in the books, I found myself forgetting that this book was being read by a single person and started listening to it almost as an audio drama. I'm very new to the audio book experience, but I have a hard time believing that many people can top Ramon's performance. I am extremely impressed with his reading and almost worry that he's set the bar so high that other readers will seem inadequate by comparison. The only shortcoming in Ramon's performance that I could think of is that sometimes his characters will sound like they got mixed up for just a single scene or even just a single line. These instances are few and far in between though. Overall, this trilogy was an excellent audiobook experience for me and I'd absolutely recommend it to anyone who is a fan of WarCraft or anyone who wants to get into it.
