The book is one of unique taste. I don't think it was bad, just I'm not interested in Night elves. I bought this book because I thought it will be about the guy on the cover Varian. When in fact more than seventy percent of it is about Night elves and their mystery assassin. If I wasn't such a Varian fan I'll give this a book a thumb down. The book title said wolfheart, so you expect to see most of the book talk about worgens and Varian but it did not. The assassin killing highborne should have been side story at best not the main piece. 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

As an avid fan of the Warcraft series and lore, I found this book great. The story and action were detailed but doesnt drag on. The action sequences are epic and the storyline itself is well written.

Overall the book is written pretty well except for some minor pet peeves that I have.

Heres some information for you Knaak, if an object is fired from a bow, its called an arrow, if its fired from a crossbolt THEN you can call it a bolt......

But seriously, check this book out. Its a good read.

Okay, I have to admit this book surprised me. I went in expecting Knaak to be his usual self. While I'm not among his legion of haters, I will admit that Golden is usually the superior writer. Not this time. Richard Knaak has outdone himself, taking the characters of Tyrande, Malfurion, Varian, and Maiev and bringing them to live with an interesting story about acceptance, both of others and oneself.

First, I want to address the complaints about "bland characterizations." I'm often wondering if I read the same book as some other people. Yes, Varian Wrynn does start off his usual, obstinate, annoying self. But one of the plots of this book is deconstructing that, and moving Varian past his "King/Gladiator" dichotomy and making him one whole, balanced person again.

Tyrande is a bit sticker question. In World of Warcraft, the character has done remarkably little, so her only "in-game" characterization comes from Warcraft III, where she was a bloodthirsty, borderline racial supremacist who had no qualms murdering her own people if they got in her way. In other words, she was a lot like Maiev. Does Knaak portray her differently? Yes. he treats her a High Priestess. Someone's who believes in faith and hope, and thinks carefully before acting. I personally find this characterization vastly more endearing than the one from WCIII, who I didn't care if she lived or died. To each their own. As for accusations that she just sits there, that again, is overlooking her role in the conference, and her own (admittedly short) fight scenes.

Okay, back to the review. If you loathe Knaak's style, this book probably won't change your mind. But if you've been on the fence, or merely didn't like his own author-created characters, "Wolfheart" may just change your mind.

I bought this book for my husband for Christmas. He's read all the other World of Warcraft books and he'd been mentioning for a while that he wanted to add Wolfheart to his collection. As is usual with him, he finished the book in just a few days. Actually, he can usually do it in about a day, but I had a baby in October and he's been a stay-at-home dad since I went back to work at the end of November. He said he enjoyed the book, although he prefers the stories that are written by Christie Golden better. Apparently, Knaak has a habit of incorporating dragons into his books even when it's not quite appropriate. Also, the story bounces around quite a bit and it can be hard to keep track of what's going on. Other than that, my husband liked the book and was on Amazon less than an hour after he finished it, looking to see if any more World of Warcraft books were scheduled to come out soon. I know I'll be keeping an eye out for them as well.

I was excited when I found out that we were returning to Varian and that his story would finally get a chance to resolve some of its issues. Varian was crazy before this book and he had some issues to resolve.

I like this book a lot and it's not just because of Varian. Anduin plays a key role in this book and it was nice to see how he interacts with his father and influences the local politics. He also interacts with Prophet Velen for a bit, which was an interesting development. Genn Greymane is also a prominent character in this storyline and seeing how he and Varian develop their relationship is very enjoyable. We also see the return of Maeiv Shadowsong and learn what she's been up to since the end of Burning Crusade. Jarod Shadowsong also returns and I hope to see a lot more of him and Shandris Feathermoon in the future. That storyline was fun. Varian's rivalry with Garrosh is also rather interesting and you can see that while this is the story that stopped Varian going down a similar path to Garrosh, Garrosh is continuing his downward spiral.

My only big issue with this book was about Varian's early behavior. He supports the Worgen with glowing praise at one point and then pulls a 180 for no visible reason in front of an audience of heads of state, insults everyone there and then departs. And the response is that everyone is angry at him. Malfurion seems to be the only person who thinks that something might be mentally wrong with him (like he's ill), not just that he's stupid, arrogant or drunk. I figured that we'd see a meeting of All the Heads of State plus Anduin but minus Varian about What's Wrong With Varian. But that's not what happened. It was off-putting.
