I have had my copy for about a week, and having a druid as my main character, the parts I have paid the most attention to are the very druid-centric ones... many different characters are woven into this tale and it was satisfying in the end. My primary complaint is that weaving in SO many characters made the read rather blocky and somewhat hard to follow as to who is doing what and where they are at any given time. That could have been simplified a great deal and still been a satifying read.I would have liked to see more character development on Thura, the orc... She should have had quite some different reactions than she did upon discovering the truth... no matter what the motives, her sacred beliefs were meddled with, and that generally does not not elicit the 'shrug' response that she seems to have had.and as for the last part.... all I will say here so as not to spoil anything is after 10,000 years, it's about bloody time! ::chuckle::And being a lore nerd and druid, I definitely recommend this to read, even with its issues. :)

The "shrug" reaction is something I've seen from Knaak's characters before. I don't think diving into complex emotional reactions from characters is really one of his strengths, which is disappointing when it's something fans have been waiting for. He handled Vereesa's reaction to finding out that Sylvanas was the Banshee Queen with a few sentences that amounted to /shrug "I don't really want to deal with it and probably never will."
