It's quite obvious from Knaak's writing style that his main target is a younger audience. His work reminds me of some of the novels i had to read back in junior high for our book reports. Now, I'm not saying I don't enjoy his writing - I truly enjoyed the WOTA Trilogy, and Day of the Dragon as well, but Night of the Dragon just seemed dull. Perhaps it's that he uses his novels to write fanfiction by creating these new, over-thought characters instead of working with existing lore-based characters that's starting to make reading his stuff so tiresome anymore. Rhonin was fine in Day of the Dragon, but then he time travels in WOTA, and is suddenly, and conveniently overpowered, and trains Illidan. Seriously - WTF? Knaak is just a fanboy writing out his WoW fantasies anymore. Even at that, I'm still probably going to end up buying this book, as I've read most of the Warcraft novels already. Why stop now, right?

Same here I enjoyed his books apart from night of the dragon. It's understandable that Rhonin would be a bit more powerful with help from the well of eternity, but Knaak did take that aspect a bit too far.
