Kurzbeschreibung

In the wake of the Cataclysm, conflict has engulfed every corner of Azeroth. Hungering for more resources amid the turmoil, the Horde has pressed into Ashenvale to feed its burgeoning war machine. There, acting warchief Garrosh Hellscream has employed a brutal new tactic to conquer the region and crush its night elf defenders, a move that will cripple the Alliance’s power throughout the World of Warcraft.

Unaware of the disaster brewing in Ashenvale, the night elves’ legendary leaders, High Priestess Tyrande Whisperwind and Archdruid Malfurion Stormrage, conduct a summit near Darnassus in order to vote the proud worgen of Gilneas into the Alliance. However, resentment of Gilneas and its ruler, Genn Greymane, runs deep in Stormwind’s King Varian Wrynn. His refusal to forgive Genn for closing his nation off from the rest of the world years ago endangers more than just the summit: it threatens to unravel the Alliance itself.

Varian’s animosity is only one of many unsettling developments in Darnassus. An uneasiness creeps over the once-immortal night elves as the first of them fall victim to the infirmities of age. While they cope with their mortality, tensions flare over the reintroduction of the Highborne, formerly the highest caste of night elf nobility, into their society. Many night elves are unable to pardon the Highborne for the destruction unleashed on Azeroth millennia ago by their reckless use of magic.

When a murdered Highborne is discovered on the outskirts of Darnassus, Malfurion and Tyrande move to stop further bloodshed and unrest by appointing one of the night elves’ most cunning and skilled agents to find the killer: the renowned warden Maiev Shadowsong. Yet with all that is transpiring in Darnassus, the Alliance might be powerless to stop the relentless new warchief Garrosh from seizing the whole of Ashenvale.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great Warcraft book, don't hesitate to buy! 18. September 2011
Von Kyle Ellis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
As an avid fan of the Warcraft series and lore, I found this book great. The story and action were detailed but doesnt drag on. The action sequences are epic and the storyline itself is well written.

Overall the book is written pretty well except for some minor pet peeves that I have.

Heres some information for you Knaak, if an object is fired from a bow, its called an arrow, if its fired from a crossbolt THEN you can call it a bolt......

But seriously, check this book out. Its a good read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great WoW Novell; Must Read for Alliance Players 1. November 2011
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Okay, I have to admit this book surprised me. I went in expecting Knaak to be his usual self. While I'm not among his legion of haters, I will admit that Golden is usually the superior writer. Not this time. Richard Knaak has outdone himself, taking the characters of Tyrande, Malfurion, Varian, and Maiev and bringing them to live with an interesting story about acceptance, both of others and oneself.

First, I want to address the complaints about "bland characterizations." I'm often wondering if I read the same book as some other people. Yes, Varian Wrynn does start off his usual, obstinate, annoying self. But one of the plots of this book is deconstructing that, and moving Varian past his "King/Gladiator" dichotomy and making him one whole, balanced person again.

Tyrande is a bit sticker question. In World of Warcraft, the character has done remarkably little, so her only "in-game" characterization comes from Warcraft III, where she was a bloodthirsty, borderline racial supremacist who had no qualms murdering her own people if they got in her way. In other words, she was a lot like Maiev. Does Knaak portray her differently? Yes. he treats her a High Priestess. Someone's who believes in faith and hope, and thinks carefully before acting. I personally find this characterization vastly more endearing than the one from WCIII, who I didn't care if she lived or died. To each their own. As for accusations that she just sits there, that again, is overlooking her role in the conference, and her own (admittedly short) fight scenes.

Okay, back to the review. If you loathe Knaak's style, this book probably won't change your mind. But if you've been on the fence, or merely didn't like his own author-created characters, "Wolfheart" may just change your mind.

For Alliance fans, this book gives the faction a much needed boost of morale. In the game itself, the Alliance has taken the short end of the stick in regards to the storyline. By the third act, Varian Wrynn has finally mastered his rage and (some of) his prejudices, and leads the Alliance to it's first major victory in the face of the new Horde Blitzkrieg.

My other reservation is for new readers. If you're not already familiar with the Warcraft world, you'll be a bit lost by what's going on. This book is *not* a jumping on point for those not already familiar with Warcraft lore. Try "Rise of the Horde" or "Arthas: Rise of the Lich King" instead.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not bad. 14. September 2011
Von David - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Wolfheart is a fairly good palate cleanser after 'Thrall' where it's much less about one man trying to save the world, then people trying to hold onto, or get back what they've once had.

Like usual Knakk knows how to write action like nobody's business, with gut wrenching action both on and off the battlefield. All the characters are already fairly established in lore, so there's not much need for extensive character building, and this book does help fill in and resolve things going on Alliance side after the cataclysm.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Wolfheart 31. Dezember 2011
Von Kathryn M. Foreman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book for my husband for Christmas. He's read all the other World of Warcraft books and he'd been mentioning for a while that he wanted to add Wolfheart to his collection. As is usual with him, he finished the book in just a few days. Actually, he can usually do it in about a day, but I had a baby in October and he's been a stay-at-home dad since I went back to work at the end of November. He said he enjoyed the book, although he prefers the stories that are written by Christie Golden better. Apparently, Knaak has a habit of incorporating dragons into his books even when it's not quite appropriate. Also, the story bounces around quite a bit and it can be hard to keep track of what's going on. Other than that, my husband liked the book and was on Amazon less than an hour after he finished it, looking to see if any more World of Warcraft books were scheduled to come out soon. I know I'll be keeping an eye out for them as well.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Entertaining to say the least 7. Oktober 2011
Von Lilimuth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Despite that this novel starts off a bit all over the place, Knaak has done a marvelous job at creating an atmosphere that literally transports the reader. The keypoints to this novel are of course, Alliance triumph, the Night Elves struggle, and further story support for the Greymane Worgen. Beautiful read. At the beginning I couldn't wait to get into the action, and by the end I simply didn't want to chapters to end. Action sequences alone are worth the read. Plus? Lore is always fun. :) Enjoy!

Although clearly night elves, these were the Highborne, the highest caste of old night elf nobility. However, due to their continued use of arcane magic, they had been shunned by their brethren following the War of the Ancients. Once, there had been many more of them, but some had fallen serving their arrogant and evil queen, Azshara, while others had been later transformed in other manners, turned into the reptilian, sea-dwelling fiends called naga. &quote;
