Kurzbeschreibung

The Hour of Twilight. She’d spoken of it at the meeting, tried to warn the others of it, but the warning had gotten lost; a little bright fragment of . . . something . . . had been briskly swept away like a broken bit of pottery beneath an industrious broom. It was—

She gnawed her lower lip, thinking.

It was the greatest challenge the dragonflights would face, but she did not know against whom they would be fighting. It might come soon . . . or aeons from now. Could it have something to do with the return of Deathwing? Surely it had to . . . did it not? This breaking of the world was one of the worst things that had ever happened to Azeroth.

How could she persuade others of the direness of the situation when she herself could not articulate it? She uttered a little noise of annoyance and frustration.

One thing she knew for certain. There were many pieces missing from this puzzle, but there was one core piece that was necessary before any of the others could fall into place. It was a very strange piece, an unlikely one at best, and she was uncertain as to how he would fit in. She only knew that he had to.

Ysera had seen him, floating in and out of her dreaming. She had thought she understood his role in things, but now, peculiar as it seemed, something—some inner certainty that even she did not fully understand—was leading her to think she had not seen the full breadth of his contribution to Azeroth.

He was not a dragon. But he had the interests of the dragonflights in his heart—whether he knew it or not. He straddled worlds—but did not seek to rule or command or destroy them. He was unique.

She tilted her head, let the wind play with her long green hair. Perhaps that was why he fit in. Even the Aspects were not singular beings, although each had unique abilities. Not one but five there had been at the beginning, when the titans had come and shared their power for the good of Azeroth. Four there were now, but there would soon be five again, when the blues determined how to choose the one who would lead them.

But there was only one like this being.

There was only one Thrall.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Spoiler Free Review 25. Juli 2011
Von Rowan Seven - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
"Thrall: Twilight of the Aspects" is a book that might be unique in the WarCraft franchise in that it is a story about intimate, personal journeys. The tale centers around Thrall who, questioning his recent decisions and uncertain whether he is doing the right thing, finds his focus fragmented and his ability to contribute to the Earthen Ring's efforts at the Maelstrom hampered. Ysera the Awakened (formerly the Dreamer) comes to the former Warchief in this period of doubt and gives him a seemingly simple task to perform that, as Thrall learns more, morphs into something far larger with the fate of the dragonflights and the future of the world at stake as the Twilight's Hammer Cult prepares to awaken a new weapon of terrifying power. Only by standing together can the dragons defeat this threat, but the unity of the Wyrmrest Accord has been shattered following Malygos's death and the dragonflights and their leaders are in disarray: Ysera's dreaming has given her visions of the future that even she doesn't fully understand, Nozdormu is lost in the Timeways, Alexstrasza has succumbed to grief, and the Blues are divided over who should be their next Aspect. To save Azeroth Thrall must help the dragonflights overcome these wounds and their divisions and, in doing so, rediscover who he truly is.

Christie Golden is this story's author and quickly demonstrates that, nearly 10 years after first introducing Thrall to the WarCraft universe in the novel "Lord of the Clans," she still understands this character and that there is still space for Thrall's identity to change and grow. Moreover, Golden structures the narrative so that, above and beyond the basic plot of Thrall uniting the dragonflights against the Twilight's Hammer's dark scheme, the challenges the Aspects are struggling with reflect Thrall's own. Ysera is confused by how things are supposed to fit together, Nozdormu has become so obsessed with the past and future that he can no longer find himself in the present, Alexstrasza is paralyzed by her mournful sorrow, and Aspect-candidate Kalecgos is afraid that becoming something new will fundamentally change who he is. In helping and healing them Thrall has the opportunity to help and heal himself, and this multi-layered approach to storytelling where the external and internal mirror each other gives this novel an emotional power that few books in the WarCraft series have attained.

At the same time, while the Twilight's Hammer are in some ways secondary to the central and intrinsically personal heart of the story, they pose a legitimate threat to the protagonists that brings past and present elements of WarCraft history together in their new weapon. And, just as Golden did for Aedelas Blackmoore back in "Lord of the Clans," the main antagonist of this novel, a man known as the Twilight Father, is more than the sum of his parts. He is despicable but compelling, cowardly yet powerful, and unsettlingly intelligent and dangerous. The revelation of his true identity near the end of the book could have used more grounding in the story because those who don't play World of WarCraft might not recognize him, but otherwise he is an effective villain that stands out in a tale filled with such large and well-known characters as Thrall and the Aspects.

"Thrall: Twilight of the Aspects" is at its strongest when it focuses on the implicit parallels and relationships between its title character and those he encounters and lets actions and events speak for themselves, such as the unspoken yet poignant meaning of what transpires when Thrall meets Alexstrasza for the second time. It is at its weakest when these character explorations are rushed to advance the Twilight plot and when the story feels like set-up for future MMO Cataclysm patches because, for all that happens here, Deathwing and the climax of what began in Christie Golden's previous WarCraft novel, "The Shattering," are saved presumably for the current World of Warcraft expansion's conclusion. In a certain way, though, this is appropriate because this is a story of journeys, and while Thrall travels far in this book his journey -- both personal and otherwise -- is still ongoing.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fun Read, but Short 22. Juli 2011
Von Ginny Buhler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
As Metzen said in a comment to another review, this obviously happens prior to patch 4.2. There is some parallel with the journey Thrall goes through in the 4.2 questline (in fact, it's kind of hard to see how he would have to deal with his issues yet again after the events of the book), but there are always going to be issues translating between the formats of book and game. That would also be why the character mentioned dead is still in the game in some places. You'll also notice you can go to Nagrand to Sholazar Basin to Sethria's Roost and see Hemit Nesingwary in all three places within minutes. Just because a character occurs in a previous part of the game doesn't mean the story hasn't advanced and things are different for them in the current storyline.

Issues of games versus books aside, this was a pretty fun read. If you're reading it, you're most likely a Warcraft fan who wants to continue to follow the story of the various characters, and Thrall is one of the most beloved characters in the Warcraft universe. The book delivers on that promise. More backstory is filled in and it certainly made me look at some in-game events in a different light. That said, it's extremely short. I finished over 90% of it during one single milling session. I'm a pretty fast reader, but even so, a book that takes me only two or three hours to read is definitely low on the value for my money scale. The Warcraft books need to be longer or the Kindle prices much, much lower. A physical paperback costs less than the ebook versions of a lot of these!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Emotional, powerful, lore-dense. Good book 20. Juli 2011
Von Ron White - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a heart felt powerful book that really delved into who thrall is, not just game plotting. I was very pleased. I actually do think it synchs nicely with the game unlike what others are saying. This book really tied together the shattering, lord of the clans, and warcraft 3, and thrall's story in game. must read.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Great Book For World Of WarCraft Gamers 31. Juli 2011
Von wbentrim - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Thrall Twilight Of The Aspects by Christie Golden

This is another World of Warcraft novels. This time Thrall the Orc is questing for the lands of Azeroth and specifically for the green Dragon Aspect, Ysera.

Somehow I think books should come first and then the game but in the real world to get young boys to read you do what you can. If this series encourages boys to read then it is well worth the effort.

Never having played World of WarCraft I feel like I am at a serious disadvantage in reading this book. I am sure that advocates of the game will welcome the rich and colorful details that the can experience in a book focused on their favorite game. I do not care how careful and what level of expertise programmers bring to a rpg game, they can not expect to exceed the infinite expression of imagination. Reading this book can provide a more satisfying gaming experience with Golden's excellent character development and screen painting.

For me, the book wasn't particularly intriguing but for the World of WarCraft aficionado I suspect this will be a must have book.

I recommend the book for World of WarCraft gamers.
