Rated 5 out of 5 by from i loved it! this is my first WoW book I've ever read. wasn't sure what to expect seeing as how I play the game as well. I thoroughly enjoyed it. my favorite expansion is the lich king so this really interested me. I know a lot more of how the lich king came about. I had no idea before. it helped learn the lore of my game. this is my favorite WoW book so far. I've read a few others and it was hard to get through them because it was all about the horde. I'm more of an alliance person myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply amazing! Loving the Wrath of the Lich King expansion, I wanted to learn more about Arthas. This book provides the story before Arthas' campaign in Warcraft III, as well as everything (and more!) during the wonderful campaign. I strongly recommend this one with all of my heart!
