Publisher's Summary

THE AGE OF DRAGONS IS OVER.

Uncertainty plagues Azeroth’s ancient guardians as they struggle to find a new purpose. This dilemma has hit Kalecgos, youngest of the former Dragon Aspects, especially hard. Having lost his great powers, how can he―or any of his kind―still make a difference in the world? 

The answer lies in the distant past, when savage beasts called proto-dragons ruled the skies. Through a mysterious artifact found near the heart of Northrend, Kalecgos witnesses this violent era and the shocking history of the original Aspects: Alexstrasza, Ysera, Malygos, Neltharion, and Nozdormu. In their most primitive forms, the future protectors of Azeroth must stand united against Galakrond, a bloodthirsty creature that threatens the existence of their race. 

But did these mere proto-dragons face such a horrific adversary alone, or did an outside force help them? Were they given the strength they would become legendary for...or did they earn it with blood? Kalecgos’s discoveries will change everything he knows about the events....

It's... Alright

This story reads a bit like fan fiction. Like a smaller idea that would make a solid and compact chapter of a larger book has been extracted from its source material and then stretched and given some filler. I hate saying it, but our main character could be completely written out and it wouldn't change the story. Same with Jaina. The story is about the dragon aspects, so why not just write a story about that? Why include Kalec and Jaina when they don't serve any purpose other than name recognition?

It's not a bad story, it just feels like blizzard and the author didn't bring their A-game.

Drawn Out Story. Monotone Narrating. Great Voices.

The voices are done very well. The narrating is dull and monotone. You have to try to pay attention at parts.

A slow-burner

The story tends to drag here and there ,but the narrator's absolute scenery chewing over-acting (especially with Nozdormu and Galakrond) makes up for it in spades.

Not Great

Unfortunately this was not a very good audiobook from my perspective.
The narration was not very gripping.
Sorry to say I returned it in the end.

Meh

Felt far too repetitive and had no real risk as you know the outcome already

Narrator sounded as bored as I was

This is the first Warcraft book I have not enjoyed at all. I normally love Richard A. Knaak so I’m not sure what went wrong here.
Maybe it was the poor delivery or the fact that you can only describe the colour of a protodragon so many times before it becomes mind numbing.
I think a major flaw in this book is all Warcraft fans are aware every single one of the characters survives so it’s very difficult to feel any emotion.
Another minor annoyance is why would Proto dragons (and Tyr) continually refer to themselves as Proto dragons when dragons do not yet exist? Baffling.
