    1. Shattered That s my only reaction at the end of this book I am a huge Jaina Proudmoore fan and wanted to see where this adventure would take her.I have read several Warcraft books Rise of the Horde, Of Blood and Honor, Arthas, Lord of the Clans, Stormrage, The Shattering and The War of the Ancients series, but this has by far been the most memorableJaina Proudmoore is a cool headed alliance diplomat Her choices again and again have made her a friend to many of the horde and to the alliance In th [...]


    2. Hey readers Female Protagonist Tides of War is a novel written by Richard A Knaak, under his lesser known pen name to avoid publication scrutiny.This book is about the Alliance Well, okay, almost 50% of it is not, but the Horde are so cool More importantly, however, here it is folks, it s the one we ve all been waiting for, it s about Jaina How can we appease those stupid feminists, complaining about our sexist portrayal of female characters Metzen asks Golden, taking a massive toke of dudebro w [...]


    3. I ll start off by saying that I own and have read almost the entire collection of Warcraft books And this is quite possible the best, most well written of them all.There are so many good points to the book, I can barely wrap my head around it It has one of the best romances I ve seen in the book The conflict between the characters is believable and real, lending you the chance for you to feel great empathy for their concerns and their goals The tragedy that serves as the climax to the book, whic [...]


    4. This book is awful Just Plain Awful It s named after Jaina Proudmoore, but she s only in 1 3 of it, and barely does anything at all and when she does act, even though her actions are fully justified and reasonable, everyone eg the countless male characters who occupy the other 2 3 of the book rushes to stop and condemn her which they should have done to her attackers BEFORE her friends and kingdom were slaughtered by male sociopaths It s misogynistic, it s horribly paced, and the author apparent [...]


    5. Let me be completely honest I m not a reader of fantasy books I ve played World of Warcraft for 8 years paladin and I think it s skeezy to ask us to buy books to give us additional story to a game we already pay monthly for I ve read bits and pieces of the other Warcraft books that my husband warlock bought and left on the toilet tank And I aways chuckled at the overt word count padding But I actually spent 12.99 cash on the ebook version of Tides of War Why Because I m one of those pesky people [...]


    6. Christie Golden promised in her dedication in Arthas Rise of the Lich King to write the best books possible for World of Warcraft fans and she hasn t failed to deliver yet Tides of War is probably her best written Warcraft novel since Lord of the Clans, if not ever, but I think I still prefer The Shattering overall The nature of the tie in novel really hits this book hard, unfortunately.Strangely enough, this is an ensemble book I don t know why, Rise of the Lich King and Twilight of the Aspects [...]


    7. This review is going to have massive spoilers for World of Warcraft Mists of Pandaria You have been warned.This is hands down the worst book I ve read in the past ten years This actually has nothing to do with Miss Golden, who I believe tried to do the best she did with the material she was given In the past, she s actually done some great things for the Warcraft lore, such as fleshing out Anduin Wrynn s character Bravo for that, Miss Golden I appreciate her enthusiasm in bringing character deve [...]


    8. While I may play World of Warcraft off and on, one constant is my interest in the lore behind the game, an interest that extends to pretty much all MMOs I play, in fact I m always devouring every piece of lore and background information I can find, even if that means putting up with some not so well written novels every once in a while I ve long discovered that looking for quality writing in most video game tie in books is a lost cause.Admittedly, I didn t think Jaina Proudmoore Tides of War was [...]


    9. It is really amazing how much better the last few novels have been It feels like since Stormrage Blizzard has really wanted to actually do novels that move the story forward and this one is no exception.Jaina is a character who plays a prominent role in the game at times but really comes alive in the novels She has always been kind of a tragic figure because of the whole Kael thas Arthas love triangle it is hard to reconcile that the two men who once loved you became consumed by evil And her who [...]



    10. I always thought Jaina Proud was a badass, but this just goes to prove that even This book answer so many questions I had about the fate of Thera Isle and gave me such a strong craving to play.


    11. I wanted to like this book I like Christie Golden as an author She s typically easy to read and the story flows well And those things are essentially true The problem, for me, is everything else.I think the main flaw in the book is that it seems like she is essentially being told exactly what to write and can t deviate from the outline Things that I think that would ve added some backstory is why Garrosh is starting to go batshit crazy Who is Malkorok And while WoW as a game might explain some o [...]


    12. I ve played World of Warcraft for over a decade, and first played Warcraft 3 nearly 12 years ago In that time, I ve read a few Warcraft novels one of which so enamoured me with the Shaman that I created and played one for the next year In my opinion, the lore of Warcraft is the greatest fantasy story ever created Yes, there is much inspiration from other fantasy stories, but what sets the Warcraft story apart is the fact that the game allows you to visit the places, meet the characters, and be a [...]


    13. A really good, fast read Christie Golden knows her Warcraft and knows it well She has an amazing grasp on the woman and what exactly is going on inside her head Tides of War is at its core a story of transformation, of accepting that all things, be it beliefs, standards, or friendships, will inevitably be tested It s a story of uncertainly trying to find a place in a world that seems to have no place for you, be it as a diplomat inexplicably standing for peace in a time of war or a flight of dra [...]


    14. Jaina Proudmoore Tides of War is the story of the events leading up to one of the big story arcs for the up coming World of Warcraft expansion Mists of Pandaria Rather than looking at the Pandaran arc, this looks at the growing tension between the Horde and the Alliance, and covers a pivotal moment in WoW s history set around the Isle of Thera This book drew me in and played my emotional strings with a rare mastery I found all the characterisations fit what I knew from the game, but with the add [...]


    15. Christie Golden is a great World of Warcraft author She gets and understands the setting and really develops the characters within it to a believable extent I love her Jaina Proud I also love her development of Kalecgos, who I started liking with the Sunwell trilogy manga This book did a great job setting up the Fall of Thera scenario and has me anxious for Mists of Pandaria As a side effect, however, I no longer want to play my Horde characters Besides now having a deep and abiding hate for Gar [...]


    16. If you are a Warcraft Lore hound such as myself No, wait If you like fiction READ THIS BOOK By far one of the most well written Novels i ve read in quite a while Next to Exile I was hooked from beginning to end I wanted after it was over Needless to say, Mists of Pandaria cannot come soon enough, so I can take in the Brilliantly told story from a better prospective Blizzard and Christie Golden Deliver yet again with this book


    17. Loved this book Action packed, equally distributes point of view between the alliance, the horde and the dragon flights Great lore


    18. You can read the full review over at my blog sonsofcorax.wordpress 2014Quite unintentionally, I ve started on a sort of WarCraft kick this year as far as my reading is concerned First it was The Shattering Prelude to the Cataclysm and then it was Thrall Twilight of the Aspects, novels that were set in the World of WarCraft Cataclysm expansion, and they both proved to be really good reads all the way through They also helped me reconnect with a game that I d long stopped playing, and the hit of n [...]


    19. I have read several reviews saying this book is awful I don t know why I thought Christie Golden did a magnificent job she tends to doof showing characters inner and outer conflict I thought the new characters that showed up were well developed for the roles they played I thought the pacing of the story was done well and Golden s superb descriptive prose made what happened in Thera hit harder than I probably needed to have it The deaths in this book broke my heart though not quite as much as the [...]


    20. I was of two minds about this book from the outset, given that the showcase character of Jaina Proudmoore is not one I ve ever had great interest in Personal foibles aside, however, I would say that this book is perhaps the strongest of the World of Warcraft offerings yet released even managing to compete with and perhaps surpass my previous favorite in the series Arthas Rise of the Lich King Kudos to Mrs Golden for being able to spin a tale that reinvested me in a character for whom my interest [...]


    21. It honestly floors me that with 11 million active players, Blizzard can t find better authors for its series I don t really have a problem with the plot I love cheesy books and cheesy games, and WOW is nothing if not cheesy I like fanfiction and I like series fiction But here is my problem Golden is a really mediocre writer Someone handed her an outline of what happens and she just told the reader everything That s all This book is all tell She s about as dry as a rock Cookie cutter characters C [...]


    22. I have to hand it to Christie Golden, this is probably one of her best Warcraft books yet I think I ve read most of the ones she s written, and I was amazed at her exploration of the characters and their losses and emotions I understand the segue between Cataclysm and MOP much better, as well as the background of the fall of Thera There were several times in this book I was nearly in tears Even if you ve never played World of Warcraft, most of the books are a good dive into fantasy The story and [...]


    23. It really brings out exactly how human Jaina Proudmoore really is People that play World of Warcraft get a feeling from major NPCs like Jaina or Thrall that they re invincible Taking 40 man raids to pillage a village and take out its leader gives these NPCs high expectations, but as Jaina has multiple major cataclysms all happening at once, the limits of this incredible being gets pushed to its max and we see the peace binding mage go outside her borders as she starts stepping on what she feels, [...]


    24. I must say, this book was brilliant from start to finish.Golden really knew how to develop the characters well I got to know about a number of characters, especially the amazing Kalec, also known as Kalecgos of the Blue Dragonflight His character was so lifelike and so brilliantly constructed, as well as Jaina Proudmoore s.I really loved this storyline as it grabbed my attention right from the start of the book I also loved the relationship between Jaina and Kalec as it developed throughout the [...]


    25. Christie Golden once again proves that she s the best author when it comes to the Warcraft universe This was amazing, I couldn t put down the book, even though I knew what was going to happen, I was still on the edge of my seat the whole time I was a bit concerned how the character growth of Jaina would be presented but it was pretty believable and also about time, I was getting a little tired of her peace loving antics while Garrosh steps all over the Alliance A must read for any fan of Warcraf [...]


    26. I probably shouldn t have expected much from yet another Warcraft book, but I still couldn t help but be disappointed in the quality of writing The plot points are interesting and I did like how Kalecgos was portrayed, but it seems Jaina Proudmoore is never going to be the character I want her to be.Still, I m sure it will tie in nicely with the upcoming events in game and I suppose that s all one can hope for from these books.


    27. I recently got back into WoW after a hiatus missed most of Cata and all of MoP due to lack of time, plus a creaking rig but having bought a new gaming PC before Christmasi got back in with the WoD expansion.And so decided to catch up on some of the lore by reading a few of the novelisations And this one was a cracker No wonder it was the top seller it turned out to be a marvellously crafted look at the Fall of Thera and the rise of Grommash s threat, it was unputdownable


    28. This is such a wonderful peek into the Horde culture for Alliance players The death of the elder Bloodhoof really upset me He s not one of the major Horde leaders but I have a great deal of respect for him because if he does not agree with decisions made by Garrosh Hellscream, he will find an alternative often with assistance of the Alliance He, like Thrall, has a good relationship with Jaina and Anduin The future leaders of the Alliance.Eh, the new war chief will probably Vol Jin


    29. I found Jaina Proudmoore Tides of War to be a really enjoyable experience.I enjoy WoW books in general, but Christie Golden hits the spot perfectly with an amazing rendition of the tragic story of the Bombing of Thera.Fantastic story telling, it even made me sob a little.Yes I cried at a book.About a game.Don t judge me 9.5 10 Loved it 3
