I really, really wish this had been handled in game. The corruption of Teldrassil, the return of Malfurion - as a night elf player, I would have gladly faced a thousand angry murlocs for the chance to participate in the biggest event in night elf lore since Hyjal. The Wrathgate/Undercity storyline demonstrates that events on that scale can be handled just fine in game too.But no ... we got a book that tons of players won't even read, and when we see Malfurion in game it'll be like Varian appearing out of nowhere: "What the hell? What's he doing here? :O" Well, maybe it'll be a friendlier reception because Malfurion is a familiar character, but still./grudge off ^^;ANYWAY. As to the book itself, for a Knaak book, I thought it was oddly enjoyable. It wasn't amazing - there are flaws, and it's still Knaak's purple prose and flat depictions of many characters, particularly the female ones - but this book had a definite beginning, middle, and climax, as opposed to overdone fight scene after overdone fight scene. Krasus/Korialstrasz and Rhonin played no significant part, which helped the quality tremendously.So, yeah. It's nowhere near what someone like Christie Golden could've done with it, obviously, but it's a decent read. At the very least, you should be able to read it without wanting to stab your eyes out with a rusty spork. :P

... and by "the corruption of Teldrassil," I mean "the cleansing of Teldrassil." Durpdurp. :B
