Ah, excellent. It'll actually be a readable book then, as opposed to the Warcraft author, who's name shall not be spoken, but rhymes with 'Hack'.

:O You didn't like Knaak's writing? I couldn't put down War of the Ancients...

"Oh Hi I'm Rhonin and I've met almost every major figure in lore and despite my crappy abilities I'm leader of the Kirin Tor"Mary Sue. That is Knaak's problem.

@Lyssanuer:Have you ever read a novel that wasn't a video game tie-in?Because that's the only explanation I can think of for why anyone could possibly think War of the Ancients was passable, much less "couldn't put it down": absolute unfamiliarity with what actual quality fantasy writing looks like. It reads worse than the terribad Sailor Moon fanfiction I wrote when I was 14. Hell, even by the admittedly low standards of video game tie-in novels it was absolute dreck. War of the Ancients made the Baldur's Gate official novel look like Shakespeare.Look, I'm a genuine MSTie and a connoisseur of B movies and trash lit and I couldn't even get through this trilogy. And I've read John Ringo novels for the lulz.
