Sep 01, Naomi rated it it was amazing Shelves: warcraft. That's my only reaction at the end of this book. I am a huge Jaina Proudmoore fan and wanted to see where this adventure would take her. Her choices again and again have made her a friend to many of the horde and to the alliance.

In this book though, none of this makes a difference as the current warchief of the horde, Garrosh Hellscream is still trying to take the horde in the direction that it was before Thrall had formed the new horde. Golden has captured perfectly the frustrations of an intelligent, gifted woman who is caught between her ideals and political reality.

And when one action from Hellscream is so beyond all imagination, it changes her idealism forever. The characters of Kalcegos former aspect of the blue flight and Baine are woven masterfully into the story as well.

An appearance by Varian shows his changes since the Shattering and seems to bode well for the future of the alliance. What I did not like was Garrosh's character. The same orc that threw a subordinate off a cliff for a similar crime committed it.

Trying not to give away spoilers I think there's a definite reasoning to WHY this has happened and can't wait to play through it in game. I cried through this book though, multiple times. The scenes are well written, the characterizations, amazing and the romance is woven into the story without feeling forced. My favorite warcraft book yet!

Sep 14, Jack rated it did not like it. Hey readers. Knaak, under his lesser-known pen name to avoid publication scrutiny. This book is about the Alliance! More importantly, however, here it is folks, it's the one we've all been waiting for, it's about Jaina! An archmage who needs to have magic explained to her by a dragon? A woman so incapable of dealing with her grief, she turns into a hysterical she-witch? Even better, what if she needs to be saved from her rampage by the male dragon?!

What if her ultimate reward is a harlequin romance with the desirable male, the kind an 18th century housewife could only close her eyes and dream about? And the book flies off the shelves. At last, readers, the ultimate Warcraft feminist victory. Another thing Golden has responded really well to is the backlash against perfect mary-sue characters such as Rhonin, and has instead written some really convincingly fallible characters.

Kalecgos is the best example of a character with many deep, meaningful flaws, primarily such as being irredeemably stupid and monumentally fucking up the one single duty he has.

No one calls him out on it though because no one wants to talk to him, ever. You can't blame them. One character I didn't like, was some dumb gnome kid getting all up in Jaina's face and giving Kalecgos a hard time!

I really didn't understand what was supposed to be the point of this character, but it turned out, the whole point of her was to die. The readers us, bros , we wouldn't really be able to work out that Jaina is a little bit sad about her entire city blowing up until she cries purple tears over the corpse of a child.

The arbitrary death of a new character introduced for this novel was critical to convey the fact that some people got killed in the biggest explosion ever, instead of the bunch of generals who I forget their names I don't care about.

Let's move onto the hardcores rating. Tides of Snore has a lot of hardcore points, and for good reason! Randomly summed molten giants, armies of towering tidal wave elementals, mana atom bombs, and even the kraken! This book has it all. The hardcores were basically exploding off the page every time there was a fight. The only dampener on Garrosh's hardcores was Baine, getting on the poor dude's case, crying and stuff.

Don't be such a square, Baine. What's a war crime? You some kind of hippy? Get lost, nerd. Varian really brought the hardcores into town at the end as well, owning Garrosh real hard once again, and leading everyone to a conclusive victory.

What's that, you want Jaina to do a bit of leadership in battle if she's the title character? Haha, shut up idiot! Varian's busy cutting shit up. My favourite part of this book is how it tells me everything instead of showing me it. Description, subtlety, that's all boring as hell, just tell me Rhonin's a hero and Malkorok's a bit of an asshole, and I'll believe it. Why waste time on meaningful dialogue when we have important plot events to get through, like a suicide bomb explosion the Alliance pull on Garrosh, from which his survival is never explained, resolved, or mentioned again?

Hehehe, such a badass. Yeah, this book sucks. I'll give it one star and 4 coolbro caps. Play it loud, readers, and chalk another win up for the patriarchy. Get crushed wartards!! View all 9 comments. Sep 16, [Name Redacted] rated it did not like it Shelves: tripe , war , philosophy , fantasy.

This book is awful. It's misogynistic, it's horribly paced, and the This book is awful. It's misogynistic, it's horribly paced, and the author apparently never went to Elementary school because Golden is completely ignorant of the old "show-not-tell" dictum. It perpetuates the new "Hush, Tyrande!

Likewise, it perpetuates the old "Death to the Alliance! Thrall can do no wrong, even when he is clearly doing wrong, and the Horde should never face consequences for their actions!


Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War

Oh, Jaina. How far you've come. Blizzard continues its trend of books that tie into World of Warcraft with its latest novel, Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War. This book takes place after the events in Cataclysm and after the last cinematic of the Dragon Soul raid. Deathwing is well and truly dead, and the world is a better place for it -- but for how long?
