Yeah, I kind of have the impression that Knaak should write action movies or action oriented comic books. He's really big on the action. It's not bad, I'm sure I could do no better, but it's in no way the best thing ever written either. I've been working through War of the Ancients, and people cannot take 2 steps before something major happens, like a demon popping up under a rock, or a lightning god flying by with coffee or something. Actually, now that I think about it, WoW is a lot like that. You can't ride in any direction for 1 minute before you run into something that wants to kill you; maybe he is accurate to WoW.All and all, I'm of the opinion that if you like a very action oriented novel, Knaak tends to not let you down. But if you want something with a little more depth, Knaak may not be the best for you. Alex is right when he says this will play a part in the game world. Blizz has been pretty big in incorporating all of their stories into their lore, even the action figures, so if it happens here, it'll be something to affect the game.

I've been saying for years that Richard Knaak is the unholy lovechild of Michael Bay and Kevin J. Anderson.

Lol. Though, I have to admit, I like Michael Bay movies. They appeal to my inner child like massive firework shows would.
