Publisher's Summary

When the world of Azeroth was young, the god-like titans brought order to it by reshaping its lands and seas. Throughout their great work, they followed a magnificent design for what they envisioned Azeroth would become. Although the titans departed Azeroth long ago, that design endures to this day. It is known as the Emerald Dream, a lush and savagely primal version of the... World of Warcraft.
Many are the mysteries surrounding the Emerald Dream and its reclusive guardians, the green dragonflight. In times past, druids have entered the Dream to monitor the ebb and flow of life on Azeroth in their never-ending quest to maintain the delicate balance of nature.
However, not all dreams are pleasant ones. Recently the Emerald Nightmare, an area of corruption within the Emerald Dream, began growing in size, transforming the Dream into a realm of unimaginable horror. Green dragons have been unexpectedly caught up in the Nightmare, emerging from it with shattered minds and twisted bodies. Druids who have entered the darkening Dream lately have found it difficult -- sometimes even impossible -- to escape.
Nor are these the Nightmare's only victims: more and more people are being affected. Even Malfurion Stormrage, first and foremost of the druids on Azeroth, may have fallen victim to this growing threat. As uncontrollable nightmares spread across the world, a desperate quest begins to find and free the archdruid.
Soon nature's enemies will learn the true meaning of the name.

Great on Lore, good on plot, horrible presentation

I love Warcraft Lore, and this was in some ways very entertaining. In most other ways it was excruciating listening to. The plot is great, but the way the author jumps around and rambles on and on about lesser important plot devices can be frustrated and hard to keep engaged. Then, the voice talent, who may have talent for a wild west or something, did a terrible job here. He talked so slow and mispronounced certian names of people and places that the game's cutscenes pronounce differently is obvious to show what little home work the reader did when taking on this job. He truly sounded bored reading this.

For those not familiar with the World of Warcraft, I can see them being compleatly lost. Even those familiar with the game I can see still getting lost if they did not read up on their lore first.

All in all, I still give it 3 stars because even though it has a horrible presentation, the plot and the new Lore is very excellent and entertaining.... if you can grit your teeth through it all ;-)

Mispronunciation Galore

The book continues the very well though out lore around the Warcraft Universe but the Narrator constantly mispronounced names. Sure not all names in the Warcraft Universe has a set pronunciation but there are general agreements about how to pronounce Krasus and Tyrande. I started fearing chapters with these characters just because each mispronounced I found myself ripped out of the audio book.
