great story

it's one of the best warcraft novels. I enjoyed it even though I have a deep hate for the horde. It's even better than the movie.

Another enjoyable Warcraft expansion pack

Having watched the movie 'Warcraft' & played the original real time strategy (RTS) games before listening to the prequel, I was easily swept up in an enjoyable nostalgic experience.

The audio book offers a greater glimpse into the shamanistic + tribal culture of the Orcs from the Frost Wolf Clan & the tragic circumstances that led them to join Guldan's horde in the 'Warcraft' movie.

Toby Longworth's narration pleasantly brings the story to life. It's paced like the original RTS games & the inner child within me yearns for a 'Warcraft 3' expansion pack that allows me to play through each adventure. A great addition to any 'Warcraft' fan's collection.

A lukewarm book

Despite loving C.G.'s book, for the most part, this prequel seems very washed out and tacked on.
Compared to her previous work in Lord of the clans; Rise of the Horde; Arthas; and Tides of Darkness, Warcraft: Durotan lacks whatever else the others had to make them so enthralling.

setting aside the fact that this is a movie adaptation - ergo a lot of the story and characters background is incorrect or "adjusted", the book reads in a very dull manner and failed to grasp me, I did not feel like I had to have "more" like those books that you just can't put down and you itch to pick it up again whenever you can.
The story is dull, and apart from conversations with Gul'Dan and the odd battle with the "other" orcs, nothing else managed to keep me ar the edge of my seat or aching for more.

My strong advice is to read Rise of the Horde, by the same author, instead. By doing so you will be getting a much better story AND the accurate Durotan story.

Things like Durotan only catching "glimpses" of Draenei through his lifetime, instead of, well, what actually happened, made me cringe.

Give this one a skip and pick up the real Durotan prequel with Rise of the Horde, and trust me, you'll understand much better why Durotan is such an honorable yet burdened orc.

Great for free trial.

loved the story, really enjoyed the performance. Looked at other books and refuse to pay the amount asked for them, which is disappointing. Far too expensive for what they are.
