Though I don't agree with martamius in the least bit, I do actually find it interesting that someone enjoys Knaack's writing style. It's not necessarily a bad thing, but I always felt like the characters in his books were nothing more than a piece of cardboard with maybe a beard taped on to represent a male, or a great pair of epic chest pieces...IF you know what a mean...to represent a female.Mrs. Golden's writing however felt more fresh and full, giving new life into characters once thought complete. A great example is the ever popular Culling of Stratholme moment. For all that is holy, if I have to see that seen ONE MORE TIME, I will flip! Yet, when Golden wrote it, a whole new light was added. Arthas was angry, yes, but he was shocked and felt stung when Uther thought he was being sarcastic and bitter to him.Knaack...on the other hand....well, I can only imagine THIS scene playing out.Arthas: Glad you could make it, UTHER...Uther: Watch your tone with me boy, I'm still your superior as an officer!Arthas: As I could forget-*Massive Explosion, followed as a DeLorean stops in front of them. Out pops Rhonin*Arthas: RHONIN! What happened? I thought you went into the next expansion!Rhonin: I did Arty! But something is horribly wrong!Arthas: What? What happened?Rhonin: It's your kids Arty! Quick, into the DeLorean!*Arthas and Jaina jump into the DeLorean*Arthas: Hey, Rhon, are we going to have enough flight skill for this?Rhonin: Where we're going, we don't NEED any 310% flight speed....*Book ends with all three of them flying off into the distance, leaving both Uther and Mal'Ganis with green eyes of envy at the leetness*THAT is how he would have written it, I suppose.
