PRE-RELEASE REVIEW OF "WORLD OF WARCRAFT: MALFURION"


"World of Warcraft, Malfurion" is another Warcraft novel that has been finally published in Poland. Richard A. Knaak wrote the book, which tells the story of the period between the additions Wrath of The Lich King (and Cataclysm). The title of the book suggests that Malfurion Stormwrath is the main character, the older brother to the much more famous Illidan.

Malfurion lived a relatively tranquil life, walking through the Emerald Dream and making certain that harmony and peace reign there. The idyll on Azeroth could not last forever.

Emerald Dream is a dimension in primordial Azeroth that has not been "tainted by civilization."

Another threat appeared eventually! The Emerald Dream became the Emerald Nightmare. All races of creatures fell into deep sleep, no matter what continent they were on. They also experienced terrible nightmares in dreams. Malfurion was unable resist the strange power and fell for its trap. While his dream form was on Azeroth, he was taken to Nightmare where his spirit form was tortured by the Nightmare Lord. He used Malfurion’s powers to spread war in the Emerald Dream. The situation seemed hopeless, but his friends didn't leave Shan'do.

Broll and Tyrande set out to rescue Broll, gaining some very special allies along their way: Lucan Foxblood (a man with no connections to the Dream), and Thura (an orc who wants revenge for the death of her uncle, the green dragon Eranikus). We can only hope that their efforts will save Azeroth from total destruction.

Tyrande, Malfurion's beloved

Knaak's light writing is what I love about him! The book can be read in one sitting. The plot is fast-paced and holds you in suspense. The most important moments are interwoven with descriptions of different parts Azeroth falling under the Nightmare's clutches. We can't stop reading because we want to know the continuation of the story! Everyone will notice the sheer number of plots in this novel. It is certainly more than the previous novels. This creates a rich plot line that, as the plot develops and becomes more complex, begins to intertwine in a wonderful way.

I was a huge fan of the Druids and was fascinated by the descriptions of their rituals and transformations into animals. The author perfectly reflected my thoughts about what it was like being a Druid and added many more tidbits. It was so enjoyable that I went on a druid trip to the lands described in the book.

The novel was sent to me by Insignis, and I had the pleasure of reading it for the first time. It is a must-read for all Warcraft fans!
