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.

I thoroughly enjoyed it

I find it was a slow at the start but it was maybe because I never listened to audio books but as it went on it was got right good. so either it was a perfect climatic read or the voice actor got more comfortable eitherway it was awesome !

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.

Love this series

Amazing book, glad they went with a pro narrator, unlike Christie Golden’s books. Can’t wait for the next two in the series!

Incredible! Best narrator ever. Very immersive!

Absolutely loved this book. The writing quality is very good and the story great too. But what truly is way above and beyond what is expected, is the dedication of the narrator, Ramon De Ocampo.

I only have one minor complaint of his work here. I would had preferred a slightly longer pause between subchapters. When there is clearly a paragraph between two separate storylines etc., narrator would pause no longer than as if it had been a period. I am of course willing to overlook this, when the rest is amazing. Still deserves full marks. I'm going to be looking for more of Ramon's work.

I am eagerly awaiting the release of the two other parts of this trilogy.
