    1. The Second War has ended with a crushing defeat for the Horde, but Zuluhed and Nekros Skullcrusher keep the fight going by imprisoning Alexstrasza the Dragonqueen and forcing her to breed dragonlings to serve the Orc armies. Meanwhile the Eastern Kingdoms are shaken by the scheming of its kings and nobles, further developing the crisisBack when this year began, I had no idea that I would start playing World of Warcraft, not to mention getting so immersed in this world that I would actually start [...]

    3. World of Warcraft: Day of the Dragon, by Richard A. Knaak"Day of the Dragon" was the first book to be written in the Warcraft game universe. But while it is based on a game series, the book is practically a work of original fiction with hints of the story coming from the game. Knaak took the setting, characters, and events from the Warcraft universe and constructed them into an enjoyable, readable novel.Although it is helpful to have some familiarity with Warcraft, such knowledge is not needed t [...]

    4. I read this one because my stepbrother loaned it to me with his recommendation (albeit a mild one). I read the whole thing, just because, and remembered what it was like to read books aimed at teenage male gamers. I used to read plenty of those, back in the day. I didn't like all that many of them then, either, but I read them anyway, because I wanted to know the lore. "Day of the Dragon" was good enough to not just stop reading part way through. That said, if the book is at all a commentary on [...]

    5. Wow, shocker, a Warcraft book by Richard A. Knaak that got more than a one star rating from me. Seriously, I'm floored. Like, really. After suffering through his last couple WoW novels Wolfheart and Stormrage, I was starting to think I might just be a glutton for punishment when I picked up Day of the Dragon, but to my surprise, it wasn't that bad at all.Granted, that might not mean much since I'm using my special video game tie-in novel scale to rate and review this book, so take my praise with [...]

    6. This is the first Warcraft book I've read. I was completely skeptical about how these books were going to read. I figured they were going to be dull or cliched at best. I was horribly wrong. After I read this book, i was hooked. I NEEDED to know more about Warcraft lore. I played the game for 3 years without having any background intelligence (I don't pay attention to in-game stories. I'm too impatient). These books actually make the gameplay way more interesting. I had actually cancelled my sub [...]

    7. There are two ways to look at this book. Just as a book, with their own characters and plot. If you do it like that, you are probably looking at 2 or 3 stars book. Characters are not very deep, the plot is not that goodBut, if you look at this as part of WarCraft series, then you have bit more. You already know characters, you know some back story. And you can imagine the world. And you have a bit better book. I would say 3 to 4 star, I'll go with 4 as it was fun to read about dragons.

    8. It's a great book, first of the Warcraft Books, or fantasy book for that mater, that I've ever read. Tells a story of a Mage who basically messed up on his last major quest, where everyone who went with him were distroyed in battle. Then he was then sent with another on a new quest. This new journey he is one will clear his name, if he is victorious. That is to say even if he lives through the journey to even get to where he needs to go to complete his quest.

    9. I read this one because my stepbrother loaned it to me with his recommendation (albeit a mild one). I read the whole thing, just because, and remembered what it was like to read books aimed at teenage male gamers. I used to read plenty of those, back in the day.

    10. So, we start the book with Rhonin. He is a wizard that has a bad reputation. He went on a mission and because of the spell he used, everyone died. The mission was a success, but alot of people died. He has a new mentor, and this mentor sends him on a mission. Recon. He is to find out how he can rescue the red dragon queen, who is being held captive by the orcs, who work for the Horde, who are the bad guys. They captured her and have been using her to breed dragons that the Horde use. The Allianc [...]

    11. This book is definitely the kind of book for me. First of all, World Of Warcraft is a game that I have played before and little content covered in the book is within the game, that makes me feel more interested in these kind of books. This whole book is about how a human mage named Rhonin takes a risky journey into the last remaining orc-controlled land in the order of Krakus who truly is a red dragon. Human is part of Alliance and Orc is part of Horde, Horde and Alliance has been fighting since [...]

    12. My complete review is on my blog: snoworld/lit/warcraft-dayRichard A. Knaak brought his expertise in dragon and fantasy story-telling from DragonLance, and he surpassed his DragonLance works with this one, which further added to the whole magic. He was able to put into words and add more detail to what you and I have seen in the game, details that only a person who is literally standing in that world can see. He was able to capture my imagination and materialize this world, a world that I have k [...]

    13. This book is very amazing. It is very exiting. The mage Rhonin was sent by the counsel of elders to save the Dragonqueen from the clutches of Dragonmawclan.(All by himself!!!) This took place in 100B.C when it still had Dragons but the very last know female(able to breed) Dragon was known as the Dragonqueen! They hope it will breed another female dragon. the Dragonmaw clan kidnaping the dragonqueen not only escaping(holing the Dragonqueen) the elders but also the silverhand alliance! Rhonin, des [...]

    14. 3.5Warcraft oynamadım, sanırım filmi de var onu da izlemedim ama fantastik kitaplardan ve ejderhalardan hoşlandığım için kitabı okudum. Elfler, büyücüler, ejderhalar bir çok farklı ırkı bir arada toplayan bir evrende geçen bir kitap. Kolay okunan güzel bir kitap, sayfalar ilerledikçe kitap güzelleşti. Genel olarak fantastik kurgunun bir çok klişesini içinde barındırsa da ortaya hoş bir kitap çıkmış, devam kitapları Türkiye'de çıkacak mı bilmiyorum ama çıkars [...]

    15. This was the first book I have read that was written by Ricahrd Knaak but I had heard some very good things about him. I am happy to say that I as not disappointed, though the book starts of a bit slow, it really begins to grab you around halfway through. The characters are interesting but the true standouts are the Dragons. Unique and mesmerizing each was a delight to read about and left me wanting more.

    16. This was a lot better than I thought it would be. The writing is good and the characterization was way more than I was expecting from a book based on Warcraft. I was just looking to start reading all the lore books and started with this one, and I'm glad I did. From what I've read, I'm glad that I chose to start with this book and not the War of the Ancients trilogy.

    17. My first Warcraft read. Currently playing WoW and am very intrigued by the dragon lore, so this was a natural first choice. It was a good read for sure, and while I was familiar with the characters because of the game, you certainly don't have to be. The lore surrounding the Aspects is pretty cool and this is a good insight to one of them.

    18. Just finished this book--amazing! The fact it ties in so well with the Warcraft universe was a plus. Rhonin and Krasus are both badasses--and the foreshadowing of Rhonin bumping uglies with Vereesa was quite obvious. I don't want to give too much away, so that is all. Must read for Warcraft lore folk.

    19. In the world of Warcraft, where Orcs are still ravaging the lands due to their blood-lust, a rogue mage Rhonin is sent, by his superiors, to redeem himself into the orc infested lands. Aside from the orcs, there are dragons and many more adventures that he will face. This is a book for those who love Warcraft and love fantasy.

    20. I loved this book with all its rich descriptions and characters that had such an authentic feeling to them. Its true that I love the games upon which the book is based, and I am still a World of Warcraft player, but even if I weren't, upon reading this novel, I would have become one.

    21. Thoroughly enjoyed this book, once again the horde (pre-horde) are being dishonest and achieve power by ill means "yeah let's capture the dragon queen" what absolute moronic idiots, I seriously question anyone that's proud of the horde history

    22. I debated giving this book four stars, even though some parts of the story rubbed me the wrong way. But I gave it five starts because that was the intent of the writer, not some bad writting habit. If you like Dragons and wzirads or know anything about the warcraft games, this is a good read.

    23. My first warcraft novel. Rented it just to try it out, end up owning a copy and re-reading it all over again. Story is simple and yet so wonderful, especially when it comes down to the mid of the action.

    24. I absolutely loved it.This was my first Warcraft book and I recommend it to first time Warcraft readers.Rhonin was remarkable and I loved reading about the Aspects. I couldn't stop until I was done with it.

    25. poceo sam da citam ali moram da prekinem. Mozda bi mi ova knjiga bila zanimljiva da je prva koju citam u zivotu. Lose
