World of Warcraft Illustrated by Christie Golden

Another book by New York Times Best Selling Author Christie Golden has appeared in online bookstore databases… World of Warcraft Illustrated.

The book description refers to two stories. Both of them based during the Second War, when Thrall was young. I’m a bit curious about the first one as it plain makes no sense.

There was no Burning Legion invasion in “Lord of the Clans.” As a matter of fact, the Burning Legion per se was introduced in the Warcraft III video game.

Later, World of Warcraft: Rise of the Horde revealed how the Burning Legion came to make first contact with the Horde. If there is a new story we don’t know about that happened behind-the-scenes in “Lord of the Clans,” then that would be intriguing, and worth oversight.


Learn the history of the Alliance and the Horde, and follow Thrall on a journey to save Azeroth!

Whether your loyalties lie with the Alliance or the Horde, you’ll love these two World of Warcraft stories by Christie Golden. Learn how the world of Azeroth is invaded by the Burning Legion in Lord of the Clans, and then follow the young Warchief Thrall through a bit of history about how the Horde came to be in Rise of the Horde. This beautifully bound book is a must-have for any World of Warcraft fan and will be a treasured addition to any gaming library.
