Description

The mare, her normally white coat gray with sweat, rolled her eyes and whickered.

The mare, her normally white coat gray with sweat, rolled her eyes and whickered the bridle and murmured soothingly. The horse jerked her head violently and almost took the nine-year-old with her. Whoa, Brightmane, Arthas said. Easy, girl, it’ll be all right. Nothing to worry about. Jorum Balnir grunted in amusement.

This book is dedicated to all the Warcraft lore lovers out there. I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it. Prologue: the dreaming. The wind shrieked like a child in pain. The herd of shoveltusk huddled together for warmth, their thick, shaggy coats protecting them from the worst of the storm. They formed a circle, with the calves shivering and bleating in the center. Their heads, each crowned with a massive antler, drooped toward the snow-covered earth, eyes shut against the whirling snow. Their own breath frosted their muzzles as they planted themselves and endured.

When a plague of undeath threatened all that he loved, Arthas was driven to pursue an ill-fated quest for a runeblade powerful enough to save his homeland. Arthas’s path would lead him through the arctic northern wastes toward the Frozen Throne, where he would.

I love Warcraft, have been playing since WC3 and own every collector's edition of WoW and its expansion packs since Vanilla. I mostly like playing games for their stories, so given the previous statement you might not be surprised to find out I am very familiar with the games lore. As such, I both like and dislike this book.

My main fault with this book is that, after the first few chapters, the book is pretty much a plot summary of WC3/TFT with expanded narrative and the character's internal thoughts added. On the one hand, it was nice to be have a refresher on the pre-WoW lore for my favorite villain (the Lich King) and enemy faction (the Scourge), without having to replay the games since I'm not super fond of RTS gameplay (can anyone say warpten, whosyourdaddy and greedisgood?). On the other hand, I feel like the change in medium was not taken advantage of to provide a sufficiently differentiated experience from playing the games given that the plot is identical on a general level and also in more specific ways, like much if not all of the dialogue. The main differentiator was the plot details regarding Invincible, which I feel was extremely over used and kind of lame even if it hadn't been overused. I'm no Arthas fanboy, but I do enjoy his story and feel like his fall from grace could have been so much more compellingly elaborated upon without (literally) beating a dead horse. That isn't to say that Invincible couldn't have played a noteworthy role in the overall process, just that there should have been far more to it. Every kid who has a loved pet die does not turn into a monstrous shadow of their former selves, even in a World of Warcraft that routinely features good guys turned raid bosses "because crazy".

On a more positive note, the overall writing style, while not particularly high level in terms of sophistication/vocabulary was still quite good and managed to be engaging even while catering to a fairly wide demographic likely consisting primarily of younger readers.The flaws of the book did not detract from the overall experience enough to make me not want to finish reading it, despite already knowing most of the material in advance. Lastly, I can't detract from it too much because it has plenty of potential to serve as a worthwhile introduction to this portion of the lore for those new to the game in general and/or its story.

The best part of this book is the first half. In it, Golden evokes a courtly, palace life that nobles like Jaina and Arthas would have lived. As a background for where Arthas and Jaina came from, the book succeeds marvelously, especially the whole plotline involving Arthas's horse.

But the book fails to capture the tragedy of Arthas's transformation into the lich king; frankly, the transition is way too jarring and sufficient motivation is not established for the despicable actions Arthas takes. In WC3, we are told that Arthas wandered into the wastes of Northrend and lost his sanity. While this is briefly covered in the novel, I would have liked to see much more character development in that regard, which is an opportunity a novel can shine brightly with. Arthas is one of the most compelling characters in this universe, and I simply don't feel that justice was done to truly capture the emotional/mental tension that lead to the choices he made.

Other than that, it's a wonderful book.

What can I say about one the BEST books I've ever had the pleasure of reading. An amazing story of Arthas and his childhood and how he became the Lich King. I am someone who is just starting to read the lore behind the game and wow this book gave me chills, I teared during some parts. So many amazing characters brought together in the same place, Jaina Proudmoore, Sylvanas Windrunner, Archmage Antonidis. Uther the Lightbrighter. Man oh man, do yourself a favor and stop reading this review and start reading this book. There is a reason this book made it to the NY Times best sellers collection and anyone who is a fan of the game and the lore will find themselves lost in this lovely story, smiling the whole way. Enjoy!!!

My 12 yr old son is OBSESSED with WOW, even though we don't let him play the game...He's not much of a reader, but this book had him hooked...He read a little one night as per his mandatory 30mims of reading per night and the next morning I found him up at 5am reading some more. He took it to school and read on his lunch hour, again after school, and after repeating this for two days, he has now finished the book! He LOVED it!

Ive read a few of Christie Goldens books and I wasnt pleased. After reading this I think I wasnt mad at her writting, I simply wasnt interested in the lore the other books had to offer. Simply put I am more of an Aliance player in the game and I enjoy reading books about Alliance heroes. Too many books are about the Horde and this book was focused on the Alliance side. Its an amazing back story to all of the events and lore of the lich king and many well known heroes of the alliance which was perfect for me since I didnt start to play the WoW until Warlords of Dreanor, so my lore of the past was missing. These books are helping me catch up and help me when I am away from my computer to still enjoy the wonders of Warcraft.

So far I have read Thrall, Lord of the Clans, and Rise of the Horde. Arthas, Rise of the Lich King, is hands down the best book BY FAR. I was entrenched between the covers of this book from start to finish. The book immediately grabs your attention in the prologue and finishes with the epilogue perfectly.

As a former player, I only wish I read this before playing the Lich King expansion. I never knew how amazing the story of Arthas was. I would still recommend it to anyone whether or not they had the chance to delve into the game content for this story. It is worth the read. Oddly, you almost sympathize with quite possibly the worst villain in Warcraft lore. Incredible job, Christie.

Love this! I've wanted to read this for a long while, but I just never got around to it. I am so glad I finally did.The story of Arthas is one of Azeroth's most compelling, and Golden does a simply marvelous job bringing his tragic tale to life. The characters are real, and they are captivating. I honestly cannot speak highly enough about this book. I've now read it a total of 4 times, and I plan on reading it much, much more.
