This article makes me want to read that book. I've always been curious about Tyrande, but at least in game as faction leaders go she doesn't get to do much. Doesn't seem like that's going to change much in Cata either, so perhaps I should read this to get a Tyrande fix.

From my understanding, that's not the best of ideas. To quote another commenter:"Metzen's Tyrande: 'I am a warrior of the Night, I will do whatever it takes for my people and to preserve the land... even if it means the unthinkable! No sacrifice is too great!'WoW's Tyrande: *bounce bounce*Knaak's Tyrande:'Hey Malfy sweetie, Me and Ysera baked a cake for my big-strong hubby! When you come back from saving the world maybe we could snuggle!'"*So, yeah...KNAAAAAAAAAAAK!!!!!!*Note: Took me a good 15 minutes to track down that quote :p

Thanks for the warning. Any suggestions on where to get some good Tyrande?

In the line of reading material, I have no idea, Wowwiki has a fair article on her, though. Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos has a Night Elf campaign with a focus on her, too.Sorry, for the short list, but that's all I can think of, hope it helps.

Even in Warcraft III, Tyrande was only a driving force while Malfurion wasn't around. After that she just squabbled with Maiev and got captured by Illidan. For whatever reason, Malfurion's character seems overprotective of Tyrande. It's often Malfurion who marginalises her role in things or tries to keep her safely out of the action. It's evident in Warcraft III, but maybe less apparent in Knaak's books where Tyrande seems more willing to go along with his wishes.That said, I enjoyed Stormrage. It's probably my favourite of Knaak's books.

@Drack Having actually read the book I have to disagree with that quote.Tyrande was cool and kicked ass. She was a major mover and shaker in the book and she certainly wasn't meak and an airhead. Yea, she was back up and support while Malfurion did his Druid thing and saved the world at the end, but she's a warrior and priestess not a druid. Besides if she hadn't been there to support him, Malfurion wouldn't have been able to do his thing to save the world.I don't understand why people think a woman can't be strong, confident and independent while at the same time being supportive and feminine. Being supportive and caring doesn't turn you into a piece of fluff. And believe me the Tyrande in Stormrage isn't waiting at home cooking cake. She's out there dragging Malfurion's ass out of the mess he got himself into.Definitely read the book for your Tyrande fix. I did. :D

@DrackOh, nice to see I'm reaching quote status, and not just quote status... it's "Oh crap, that reminds me of that thing that guy said ages ago, let me burn my personal time to search for it" quote status.To be fair must of that was due to my adoration of the Warcraft 3 "savage warrior" female Night Elven society and Tyrande being the icon of it, when contrasted against her weak presentation in WoW and the novel.*bounce, bounce*
