There's a lot going on, some of it feels sloppy, but most of it is interesting. It answers some major questions I think people getting into the lore might have and while it causes some new ones that are left unanswered in lore in general, none of those felt very major. If you like Varian, I think it's a good idea to read this one.
If the worgen and King varian plot switch places with the night elf and the assassin plot it would be a whole new story. I meant the book should be called Jarod's journey not wolfheart because it barely dealt with the subject. I'm just saying, if you want to buy this book to know more about Varian or the worgens don't. Just read wiki page. If you want to know more about the night elfs then go and buy it. I insist, the title though is misleading as hell
This story focuses on all the significant events concerning the alliance just prior to the cataclysm, with a special focus on the night elves. Here you will follow the journey which the Worgens took to join the alliance, as well as some insight into their origins. You will witness the return of the highborne into the night elf society, and the beginning of the effect of mortality on the night elves. Nearly all the known night elves make an appearance. Meanwhile, the horde, under Garrosh himself, attack Ashenvale using some new tactics. Varian Wrynn is on of the main focuses in this novel, as well as his relationship with the Worgen.
If you enjoy the Warcraft lore, I highly recommend this novel to you.
If you love WoW lore even a little bit this one is a must read. It felt a lot more focused and better kept my interest than Knaak's last book Stormrage, which was still an excellent book, but this one definately felt a lot better once I'd reached the end. It is worth $8(I bought the Kindle edition) and defiantely worth the time it takes to read.
I did not know much of the background of Genn and his people so it was nice to see their acceptance into the alliance. The worgen have been a favorite of mine for some time and I'm glad to have some background one them as well.
Finally a reintroduction of Jarod and Maiev. I would love to have more history on them. Hopefully that story will be told soon.
