This is the book a Warcraft fan would recommend to someone who knew nothing about Warcraft. In a nutshell, the books contained within take you from the very beginning of Warcraft up to the Warcraft 3 game. If anyone was ever interested in the story behind Warcraft, I would give them this book.

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.

I picked this book up because I had played WoW for a number of years casually, but never really paid attention to the lore outside of the immediate expansion's story. With Draenor around the corner I decided to pick it up and learn about the era that we'd be traveling to before the expansion came out.

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.

This book is a compendium of four books in one: The Rise of the Horde, The Last Guardian, Tides of Darkness, and Beyond the Dark Portal. This book collection lays the groundwork of the conflict in the famous MMO game World of Warcraft. How the orcs were deceived, rose in power, destroyed their homeland and nearly decimated the Draenei, invaded Azeroth, were beaten back by the Alliance, then finally the sacrifices made to finally stop the Horde.

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."

What a great book! Definitely puts into perspective the whole Warcraft universe and even makes me enjoy the WoW Draenor expansion more. It's even got me more excited for the movie that is coming out in a few months.
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.

This book is really great if you are interested in learning more about WoW lore! It is very well written; I could hardly put it down. Recommended it to a friend and he even went so far as to call it "life changing."

Very good collection of stories. This is an omnibus. 'The Last Guardian' is also featured in 'WarCraft Archives'.
'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.

This compilation of stories goes from the creation of the First Horde up until the end of the Second War. I defintively loved every second of each one of them! If you are a Warcraft Lore beginner then this book is a MUST have!

From the prologue of the First War all the way through the Second War, this series of books immerses you in the Warcraft lore. My personal favorite was The Last Guardian, but all authors did a good job of telling the story of the Horde and Alliance.
