I got the manga too, and was pretty let down about it. Unfortunatly once I bought the book and got it home I realised Knaak wrote it. Now dont get me wrong, hes a good writer, but for the love of god, keep him away from warcraft lore! I dont know why blizzard keeps having him write the novels and manga, every time he does he ignores the majority of warcraft lore and just makes up new demigod-like characters! Every novel That he has written, either circumvents lore (ie. "time machine Rhonin") or completely adds onto it like a cancer (ie. Stormrage......)Please blizzard, stop hiring Knaak, please!

The reason why they have Knaak is as follows, in quotes, from Chris Metzen:"[...]This couldn't possibly be THE Richard Knaak, right?[...]The writer I'd been reading since the eighth grade? [...] I knew then-that fateful phone call wasn't just the spark of a single licensed novel- but the genesis of a series of imaginative collaborations that would redefine the scope and spirit of the Warcraft setting."--- Chris Metzen, intro to the Warcraft Archive.So, Metzen is a Knaak fanboy and he wants Knaak's hands molesting the lore. That's why he has free reign on punching plotholes, raptor armies and making strong women into feeble housewives.
