Going way back into the days of the first Warcraft game, The Last Guardian tells the tragic story of Medivh. Since it was not well explained in the first Warcraft game, I found the chronicle of Medivh and his apprentice Khadghar to be an excellent read, and very insightful to the long history of Warcraft.
When the young wizard from Dalaran, Khadghar, is sent to Medivh's tower to be his understudy, young Khadghar is in for the greatest trial of his life. The great magus himself, Medivh, welcomes Khadghar into his tower, and Khadghar becomes his apprentice. The days and months that follow prove to be some of the most influential in the war against the Orcs.
Since there are many twists and surprises in this story, I do not wish to further my synopsis. Though it is vague, the general idea is there.
This book is very different from the others, in that it does not really focus on the war between Orcs and Humans...it centralizes on Medivh and Khadghar. Although the war is a crucial part, it is not the main subject of the book. Instead, the book is entirely about Khadghar's trials within the tower and Medivh's struggle within himself. It was very different...and very good. I was pleased to see a story based on the early days of Warcraft. There are familiar characters, and the book even dabbles into the origins of the half-orc Garona, a key figure in the first Warcraft, who unfortunately was never truly explained. Her motives and origins were completely ignored in the first game, so much that even true, veteran Warcraft fans have probably long forgotten about her and her actions by now.Read more ›

I read Rise of the Horde before this book and it picks up at a good spot. I LOVE how the author tied the prologue to the epilogue. It made the book end in a most pleasing way.
I sympathized with the Orcs in Rise of the Horde, but this one made me hate the Orcs!
