This book was a bit slow at first, but certainly picked up speed as you go along. I've played World of Warcraft so the names and places were familiar as I read the story. I really enjoyed how in depth this book went. The story really had me craving to roll a Night Elf character again! I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone that loves WoW or is just a fan of fantasy! A very good book for the gamer in your life!
