I dislike the fact that he pushes his own characters onto us, rather than strengthening the lore behind already existing characters. That, in my eyes, is what Blizzard -should- be paying him for.As it stands, whilst his books aren't horrible, they just seem like the type of fan-fiction that has been constructed and published a bit better than a fan's work. He introduces his own characters into an environment created by someone else: That's what many fan-fiction authors do, the difference is they don't get paid for it nor label themselves as a "professional writer".That's my problem with Knaak, and why I prefer Christie Golden.

His characters are all throughout wow, so that's kind of a grey area. I do think there's a place for side stories of unknown heroes doing great deeds, the campaign heroes can't have done everything. I've definitely had my fill of Rhonin in main roles. I was quite fond of the sunwell characters and glad to see them popping in and out of the game.
