Keep in mind, this covers several different books that were previously published. So it is gigantic in size. Once you are done reading it, it is overkill for a doorstop.
Not much here for those who have already read the original works. But it is nice to have them all in one package.
The stories are FREAKING AMAZING and I love it. It's hands-down one of the best sci-fi books I've read in a long time, let alone a gaming one.
The stories are gritty and the war real. By the time I finished this book, I had no sympathy with the brutal Orcs and knew my heart beats Alliance.
My favorite story by far was "The Last Guardian." Learning about Karazhan, it's magical craziness, meeting the innocent yet curious Khadgar, the mystical Medivh, the half-orc Garona (one of my favorite lore characters), and the madness that went down that brought the orcs to Azeroth. So much love for this book and its characters.
This book set is a great way to get familiar with lore characters that will appear in the next expansion "The Warlords of Draenor."
The arrangement of books within this single book works nicely and is chronological. My favorite was The Last Guardian. One negative aspect that I think the final 3 books have is the lack of support for the orcs. I believe the orcs are portrayed to be the bad guy too much in the final 3 books; would've preferred to have their story be more empathetic (which was how the humans were portrayed ENTIRELY through out the books).
Also, I think I would've preferred the books individually. This combines them all nicely, but the book is HUGE and is rather annoying to lug around all the time, and, because of its largeness and length that I spend reading it, it gets damaged easier.
'Chronicles of War'....are in timeline order. 'WarCraft Archives' stories are in book release date order....except for 'Of Blood and Honor'....which is an ebook format only. Which is why I purchased '.Archives'....for the physical copy of 'Of Blood & Honor'....Awesome story/Stories.....not so much with 'Day of the Dragon' By Richard Knaak....just my opinion.....others may enjoy it. Different strokes, for different folks, as they say.
