The story of the Orcs greatest warchief Thrall.,
This review is from: Lord of the Clans (Warcraft, Book 2) (Mass Market Paperback)
Lord of the Clans blizzard second attempt at a book early on in its attempt to grow outside of the confines of just a RTS game. And doesn't dissapoint. Were taken to the time after the second war to a period when Orcs are scatterted on Azeroth namely the Frostwolf clan that decided to make its home high in the Alterac Mountains. Thier we find a clan chief becoming a father as his first son is born. That orc would one day be called Thrall. Before long the Frostwolf clan is betrayed by thier own kind and the humans jump in to destroy them all. Thrall father dies while trying to protect his clan and his family and dies. The infant Thrall is taken by a cruel human and raised as a galdiator. Thrall learns the way of the warrior and has to deal with the fact he is the only orc amongest the humans. All to soon plans come to a head and Thrall is at the center of them.
When I first read this book I was given a nice look at the tried and true method of coming from nothing to gaiging everything method of writing. Also this is important to know this was supposed to be a computer game featuring all manner of new characters and concepts that was supposed to take the WOW games to a different level. Sadly Blizzard dropped this instead and turned it into a book with a number of changes. Still a good read for those who want to know more about the Warchief Thrall and his rise to power. ZUG ZUG.
