“A family is like a pack of wolves. When all play their part, the pack succeeds. When they do not, the pack fails.”
– Durotan, chieftain of the Frostwolves
I loved this book from begin to end. I watched the movie Warcraft: The Beginning over a year ago and I’ve been playing the game for almost two years now.
The story takes place on the planet Draenor. The story is non-canon to the game lore, but still pretty similar. The novel pictures the life of Durotan since he were a boy until right before the events of the Dark Portal (It’s seen as a 0 point in the calendar, like the birth of Jesus in our world.)
Unlike the novel Illidan, another Warcraft novel from another writer, this story sucked me up and it almost felt like I was in Durotan’s skin. All the sentences and dialogues flowed into eachother so naturally. All the feelings, not only from the main characters, but the entire clan, were worded as if every character was equally valued. By reading the book, I felt part of the clan and I was genuinely sad when I finished the last page, as if I said goodbye to my family and friends.
I would both recommend this book and other books from Christie Golden.
