An excellent story and great art. The art is done by the same artist that drew the Death Knight manga, and she has gotten better. The story is a excellent look at the how the changing world affects the shaman, and in a crisis of faith do they keep to the old ways or try a new way being offered.

Format: Paperback
FIrst off, i have no idea what why the previous reviewer scored this what he did. He mentions that this book had him enthralled until the last chapter which was a blow out, no holds bar, shaman battle. He didn't like what he perceived was the message. I didn't see it that way. Clearly this book is mildly about "Faith" considering there's no "faith" that these elemental spirits and their powers are real. it's all a matter of how best to use the connection with them--- the manga suggests that using this connection in a positive, non-abusive way is a much more prudent approach for a shaman - it shows why so the earthern ring has established the code in which they have. I loved this read through and through. Unlike so many video game tie-ins, this story had heart, and like any good piece of literature pushed made you think about the world and how to approach it.

As a wow player, this one had me from page one. It delved deeply into the lore - tying famous wow historical events like the summoning of ragnaros to the disturbance of the elements and pushed into how shaman work in a real life setting. we saw thrall, we saw the leader of the earthern ring, and we saw how the old gods (which is clearly what the paul benjamin is suggesting corrupted muln) have a plan to disrupt all positive forces on azeroth.

this is a must read!

*CONTAINS MASSIVE SPOILERS FOR THE MANGA*

I loved this manga. I really, truly loved this manga. It offered a great allegory to the finding of one's religion as well as an argument of "Tradition vs. Change". I thought it a lot more insightful and thought-provoking than the Death Knight volume (which was still very good), and I liked the approach they took with it. Then...the last chapter threw that all out the window just to have a big battle ending. I'm not saying this kind of ending is bad, or that it wouldn't have worked with the story; they could have taken it a different direction and kept the symbolism alive while still having a big battle. Not the case here. The "bad guy" - the one who introduces a different way of thinking into the Shamanic rituals - is revealed to just be possessed by an evil spirit, and it's up to the "hero" - who never abandoned his faith - to stop him. It takes a complete and total "Pro-faith" stance on the subject, despite stating in the book that it's good to explore and understand your feelings on the subject. I just don't understand why both sides couldn't be presented as being neither "right" nor "wrong", and that it's just a matter of opinion on how to approach the subject.
