Personally I think the author of Stormrage single handedly killed the Emerald Dream.I mean, who wants to go there now?

I think there's still a section of the Dream held by the Nightmare, so it might make a good raid someday.

More importantly, I hate the author.

The books aren't canon. No, I don't care what Blizzard says. If they want something to be "canon", implement it in-game. I don't care about their craptacular fantasy novel mill that rides their successful franchise to boatloads of cash by churning out vaguely WoW-related drek that wouldn't pass muster on a fan fiction website.

Is the Stormrage book really that bad? I was looking forward to picking it up when I can afford more luxuries then WoW itself. Malfurion is my favorite lore character...

I doubt I'll ever read Stormrage, but what I'm hearing is:Rest of the WoW Books > Stormrage > rest of Knaak.

Stormrage was actually quite good. I do not understand it when people starting hating on Knaak, he is a good writer. WoA and Stormrage certainly help not only flesh out storyline that the game can not fully present, but show us the characters true personality and flaws.

not really their flaws, more like their godlike abilities.*spoiler*Knaak did left a nice raidinstance/zone in the emerald dream for us to tackle /cheer

That really, really sucks. Emerald Dream was one of the things I was looking forward to the most.

@Cedrich Stormrage isn't that bad, but its not that good either. If your ok with spoilers I would point you to wow.com review http://www.wow.com/2010/02/23/wow-com-reviews-richard-a-knaaks-stormrage/Also GreySeer at http://www.lorecrafted.com/ has some great reviews as well. If your an Alliance or Night Elf person I will bet you will like it more than you don't.Hope that helps

@vazhkatsi What are you talking about? The Emerald Dream is a surreal mirror of all that exists in Azeroth, it's the most interesting place in Warcraft lore! Not only does it tie to the Night Elves, Dragon Flights, Titans, and Burning Legion-- from what little we know about it the only thing certain is that there's unknown terrain to explore there than all of Outland. Don't sound too boring to me.
