If any of you play the World of Warcraft MMORPG, you all are bound to have encountered and know what a Worgen is. A new faction introduced with Cataclysm, they are the representation of the popular mythical fantastical creatures known commonly as werewolves.
The Warcraft Universe has always strived to maintain a thorough and rich canonical history throughout its timeline and to establish a well deserved and accredited pantheon. To add to this already extensive and rich repertoire, we are introduced to the back story of the Worgen. To those familiar with the opening quest chain in the starting zone for the race, you all will have no doubt followed the storyline (and if you're lucky and/or curious enough done the Forsaken side of the quests as well) as to how the Worgen fit in into the modern version of the Alliance faction.
Taking a page right from the quest chain (no pun intended), this book introduces us to a protagonist who is a sleuth, an extremely clever and astutely observant genius with an incredible acumen for logical reasoning and minute deduction (very much inspired by a certain asexual sociopath popularized by the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle). As we follow his journey through the by-lanes and back-allies of Gilneas City, we observe his transformation from an ignorant and obnoxious arrogant human to a compassionate enlightened but ferocious beast with a penchant for meat - especially the human kind.
Now mind you, if you all feel that this comes across as a horror story, it certainly is in many aspects. Taking inspiration from crime noir, detective fiction, thriller novels, and, horror stories, what emerges is a wonderful blend of an enthralling and engaging saga which keeps the page turning.Read more ›
I recommend this to every worgen and WoW fan. :)
It really is fantastic. I find this worth buying and re-reading any time you're in the mood for an adventure.

I was hoping this would continue the story set out in the first 3 volumes, so I was disappointed with this one.Published on February 2, 2014 by Kyle Adomanis
