I agree that Arthas read like Warcraft III cliffnotes, but The Shattering was cool. I think a large part of its appeal is The Shattering advances the story of WoW instead of retelling old tales. It's worth a read. Check your local library if you don't want to risk the loot. I met Christie at last year's Blizzcon. She's nice and easy to talk to. I'll give Thrall: ToA a try.

Definitely second the library thing. I read the Shattering on a day off at the library a couple months back. Decent read, and it was completely free to boot. They may even have ToA, if not now then maybe in a little while, depending on where you live.

Definitely get the book from your library! I borrowed The Shattering, because it isn't the type of book I want to read more than once or twice, but I still want to know the lore. It was totally worth the trip to the library; so much of Cataclysm wouldn't make any sense if I hadn't read the book.
