    " The latest of the World of Warcraft novels, and one of my favorite so far. With the release of the Cataclysm expansion, Blizzard had said that the story of the game would be focusing more on the Alliance vs. Horde aspect, considering that the Wrath of the Lich King storyline had the Alliance and Horde working together. This book really takes that Horde vs. Alliance dynamic and runs with it. Garrosh Hellscream is the current Warchief of the Horde, and he is not satisfied with the current shaky peace between the two factions. He wants nothing less than to kick the Alliance off the continent of Kalimdor and to eventually conquer the Eartern Kingdoms. To this end he uses some very brutal tactics. Lady Jaina Proudmoore, long known as a moderate and a voice for peace between the Horde and Alliance is on the receiving end, as is her city of Theramore. What we see is a complete shift in Jaina's views and beliefs. She knows that peace is no longer an option with Garrosh Hellscream as leader of the Horde, and she prepares herself for war. One of the reasons I enjoy the World of Warcraft novels so much is that while playing the game, I can actually visit the places in the book. When a building or area is described, I don't have to try to build a picture in my head, it is already there because I have seen and been in that building. It really adds to the enjoyment for me. "

    " If you are a Warcraft Lore hound such as myself. No, wait. If you like fiction. READ THIS BOOK. By far one of the most well written Novels i've read in quite a while (Next to Exile) I was hooked from beginning to end. I wanted more after it was over! Needless to say, Mists of Pandaria cannot come soon enough, so I can take in the Brilliantly told story from a better prospective. Blizzard and Christie Golden Deliver yet again with this book! "

    " This was too short. A good book has you hitting the last page asking for more. I'm asking.... :) "

    " I was really hoping for a strong female character given the lack of them found on the alliance side since Tyrande's recent regression. I guess Sylvanas will do for another expansion. "

    " Loved this book! Action packed, equally distributes point of view between the alliance, the horde and the dragon flights. Great lore! "

    " In a nutshell, Tides of War is the fantasy version of Hiroshima. Nuff said. "

    " This is the first World of Warcraft novel I've read and for the most part i really enjoyed it. It is a bit dry. There was one major lore error I noticed. But overall, a good read, and I will be checking out her other books in this series. "

    " I thought it was great, but it's also extremely relevant to my interests, so I'm biased :) Definitely an Alliance-centric book, setting the Horde (Garrosh) up to be the Big Bad Guys. But I like Jaina's character and Kalec's character and it was a fun read, with very fantasy heavy prose though. "

    " This book is awful. Anyone that's read the older books or played Warcraft could write a better short story in less than a day. I hope I can find the receipt. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 9/8/2013

    " One of the better books in the series. My only complaint is they kill off characters I enjoy in every book while not introducing new ones. Sadly, this means the count of characters I give a crud about is less than a handful. "

    " One dimensional, whiny characters that have zero depth. Every event seems completely contrived while every other plot element seems totally unnatural for various reasons. The dialogue is also an atrocious, groan worthy train wreck. "
