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.

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!

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.

Although made for young readers was still a good read

I’ve read all the Warcraft books and left this one last because I was looking forward to it the least. However, I ended up quite enjoying the book and performance was great. Next book in the series was equally satisfying.

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.

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!
