New York Times Best Seller

An all-new, official prequel novel to The Battle for Azeroth, Blizzard Entertainment's next expansion to the critically acclaimed World of Warcraft video game.

Azeroth is dying.

The Horde and the Alliance defeated the demonic Burning Legion, but a dire catastrophe is unfolding deep below the surface of the world. There is a mortal wound in the heart of Azeroth, struck by the sword of the fallen titan Sargeras in a final act of cruelty.

For Anduin Wrynn, king of Stormwind, and Sylvanas Windrunner, warchief of the Horde and queen of the Forsaken, there is little time to rebuild what remains and even less to mourn what was lost. Azeroth's devastating wound has revealed a mysterious material known as Azerite. In the right hands, this strange golden substance is capable of incredible feats of creation; in the wrong ones, it could bring forth unthinkable destruction.

As Alliance and Horde forces race to uncover the secrets of Azerite and heal the wounded world, Anduin enacts a desperate plan aimed at forging a lasting peace between the factions. Azerite jeopardizes the balance of power, and so Anduin must gain the trust of Sylvanas. But, as ever, the Dark Lady has her own machinations.

For peace to be possible, generations of bloodshed and hatred must be brought to an end. But there are truths that neither side is willing to accept and ambitions they are loath to relinquish. As Alliance and Horde alike grasp for the Azerite's power, their simmering conflict threatens to reignite all-out war - a war that would spell doom for Azeroth.

Best Franchise Book I've listened to/read

Christie Golden has really evolved, her writing is now more reminiscent of great Fantasy authors like George R.R. Martin, rather than just being another YA Author writing for big franchises. The story was gripping and beautiful, setting the stage for Battle for Azeroth. Josh Keaton, the actual VA for High King Anduin Wrynn in-game, is a perfect fit narrating the awesome scenes unfolding in this Anduin-centric book, invoking Anduins personality with every minute, while still giving live to other characters, brilliantly voice-acted. This doesn't feel like just another franchise book, but a great novel in it's own right. Even if you don't play WoW, if you are interested in the Lore behind the Warcraft universe, this book is near perfect.

Really enjoyed it

The story was emotional, gripping and interesting. Josh Keaton does a great job performing all these characters. Only thing i disliked was his reading of Sylvannas, it sounded a lot like Littlefinger from Game of Thrones to me.
This book is meant to be the prologue for the upcoming World of Warcraft Expansion Battle for Azeroth. Every fan of the game should give themself the pleasure of this story.

Little love for Horde

Mostly focused on Anduin and the Alliance. Would have still loved to hear Sylvanas chapters read by her VA instead - regardless of how few there are.

A quantum of Solace

I cried, tears of sorrow, tears of joy and tears of sorrow again. What could you ask more of an audiobook?

Einfach zu hören und gut gesprochen.

Als Horde Spieler teilweise schwer zu ertragen, sehr Allianz lastig. Es liefert aber Gründe für Battle of Azeroth die so im Spiel nicht unbedingt klar dargestellt sind. Mir lieferte es nur noch mehr Gründe den Little Lion eins aufs Dach zu geben. ;) For the Horde!
Sprecher und Geschichte sind gut das Hörbuch im gesamten 4.5 Sterne.

Listen to this if you are into the lore of WoW

The story by itself isn't that spectacular and somehow predictable in the end, but it is a beautifully drawn background picture for the more "epic" story arch of the current WoW-expansion "Battle for Azeroth". Hence only three stars for the story, but still five stars overall since I for myself really enjoyed listening to it.
