Thrall is leader of the Horde and requires soul searching before he can continue on his path of leadership-if it's place is in the throne of the horde, or else where.
King Varian still struggles with his two identities and the bond with his son. Both must explore what it takes to be a true leader and rely on different perspectives to create a whole system of balance.
The tumultuous elements rage on and their damage to the people's of Azeroth act as a catalyst for change within each of the main races and their respective realms.
This author is my favorite author of the Warcraft series. She doesn't waste time trying to flourish language in her telling of events, yet the vernacular for each race is full of integrity and authentic.
The book is very multi-dimensional and weaves several plotlines together but in a way that is very necessary and delightful. Too often, several plotlines are only confusion and interrupts the pace of a work. Golden, with her to-the-point style of writing and excellent character depth makes each character distinct and have their own very distinct voice.
Taking us from Ironforge to Stormwind to Nagrand to Theramore to Orgrimmar etc etc, this book is a WoW lore lover's dream. I'd definitely recommend this whether you enjoyed Cataclysm, still play WoW, hate Blizzard, etc. But I'd definitely only read this if you know and love the characters to begin with.
The Shattering is no different. If you play the game (Vanilla player here), this book will easily help you connect Wrath of the Lich King and Cataclysm together. The book is very rich in detail and in some points you really feel like your there in the fight. I completely recommend this for any World of Warcraft players.
For me this book was fun and intense to read, I finally got to know even more about what actually transpired leading up to the Cataclysm. I found the writing good and interesting and the characters got brought to life real vividly. It was a real page turner and as soon as I finished it I went on to buy the next book in the series. If you played World of Warcraft and have some what basic understanding on the lore, your in for a real treat.
