Summary

In the mist-shrouded haze of the past, the world of Azeroth teemed with wondrous creatures of every kind. Mysterious elves and hardy dwarves walked among tribes of man in relative peace and harmony - until the arrival of the demonic army known as Burning Legion shattered the world's tranquility forever. Now orcs, dragons, goblins, and trolls all vie for supremacy over the scattered, warring kingdoms - part of a grand, malevolent scheme that will determine the fate of the world of WarCraft.

Ocampo = GOAT

Ramon de Ocampo is the GOAT of narrating the warcraft universe! I wish more of the newer books we being read by him.

Boring, but informative

Short and simple… This book is boring. If you're into dragon lore especially in the world of Warcraft, you'll love it. Other than that, it's boring as hell. There are no big fight scenes or anything else to really grab your attention. This book is more on the style of a mystery/investigation/spy book. Not really at all what I was expecting.

Wonderful!

This might be my favorite Warcraft novel yet! As a WoW player this novel has filled in a lot of the story and was beautifully written as well

Warcraft Day of the Dragon

I loved this book. Its somewhat cliché in the story telling, but sometimes old tropes work well for a reason. If you are a fan of the Warcraft Universe and wish to know more about the Aspects, this a great book to get started with. The characters are loveable, and play off each other well.

Richard and Ramon, one of my favorite pairings!

Ramon de Ocampo is one of my favorite narrators because of his dedication to the voices, inflections, accents, and dramatic flare. I always get deeply into the story when Ramon is there to lead me along.

Richard’s books are always enjoyable, really loved getting more lore from his writing!

It's meh

Ramon de Ocampo made the story decent. The story itself was very meh. But, I've never been much of a fan of the deathwing story.

Dated writing, awful narration, but decent story.

Writer spends too much time describing women. Narrator annoyingly pops every consonant he can.

Solid Four star story

Let's go over what I liked about the book: I liked the overall story and premise. I like the idea of exploring the backstory of the Dragon aspects. I like Deathwing as a villain and that his plans had layers to them. I liked the parts with Krassus meeting the other Dragon Aspects. And I liked the climax and ending.
What I didn't like was how the other main characters were portrayed and some of the repetitious writing. I won't be too hard on it since this was pretty much the first Warcraft book and I have heard Knaak got better with his writing, but I wish he'd used a thesaurus here and there. You can make a drinking game out of how many times he used the word "Leviathan" to describe dragons. Also, Vereesa Windrunner, the main female lead, fell victim to the Smurfette Principle, which is when a single female character is the object of desire for every male character and it got really old really fast. There's also the fact that she's mostly just support and doesn't do much fighting and the fact that her story and character are completely tied to the main character Rhonin. Just felt a little... patronizing. Also, the fact that I could see some "curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal" moments coming felt annoying
Again, I am going to be easier than I might seem on this because this was the first Warcraft novel and not every first story is going to be perfect. The fact that this also ties greatly into the lore as well as future novels is a plus to its importance so I recommend it.
Ocampo's narration was just fine. Not great, not awful, just fine.
