Description

Behind the legend stands an individual hungry for justice and vengeance - as the adventure, intrigue, and heroism of World of Warcraft rise to a new level.

You are not prepared.

Illidan Stormrage is one of the most powerful beings ever to walk the lands of Azeroth. He is also one of the least understood. Behind his legend, beneath his enigmatic mission, lies a brilliant mind whose machinations are comprehended by few - and trusted by even fewer. Illidan's righteous reign of justice and vengeance has begun.

Long ago, the night elf sorcerer Illidan infiltrated the demonic Burning Legion to ward off its invasion of Azeroth. Instead of hailing him as a hero, his own kind branded him the Betrayer, questioning his intentions after he appeared to aid the demon lords. For 10,000 years he languished in prison - vilified, isolated, but never forgetting his purpose.

Now the Legion has returned, and there is only one champion who can truly stand against it. Released from his bonds, Illidan prepares for the final confrontation in the alien realm of Outland, gathering an army of grotesque fel orcs, serpentine naga, cunning blood elves, and twisted demon hunters to his side. He alone knows what deeply hidden motives guide his hand; he alone understands the price that must be paid to defeat the enemies of creation. Yet as before, he is assailed by those who see his schemes as a cynical quest for power, including the night elf Maiev Shadowsong, his former jailor. Warden Shadowsong and her Watchers have pursued the Betrayer to Outland to exact retribution for his crimes, and she will not rest until Illidan is in her custody...or in his grave.

Good lore and unaccounted events explained

The book takes us into the mind of illidan and several other characters of note, some new some familiar. I enjoyed the music from Warcraft at the start of certain chapters for an all too familiar sense of immersion. Many parts of the story play out as one will remember if they played WoW, but the filling in the gaps was very well done. Many unaccounted for events were expanded upon which seem like they will be explained in the legion expansion.

If you enjoy Warcraft lore you will like this novel.

A Great Listen for WoW Players!

You'll never look at the Burning Crusade the same way again! It truly puts the expansion, the threat and Illidan's actions into perspective. A Great way to get prepared for Legion!

Excellent story and anexcellent voice performance.

What did you love best about Illidan: World of Warcraft?

It was compelling and I couldn't stop listening almost from the very start.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Illidan of course. I've always hated that his story went south. He wasn't the ideal guy and didn't always have the best motivations but he did try to make things right when he learned the truth of the Burning Legion. I can't wait to see how this plays out in the next expansion and beyond. Also, please Blizzard, please have William King write more books. I was uncertain about a new author but have been bored with Knaak for a while. King is such a great story teller and a breath of fresh air. Please let him do more.

What does Graeme Malcolm bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He did a great job. He didn't try to pitch his voice to sound feminine or to do a voice that was outside of his natural range, which always annoys me with other voice actors. I felt the whole time as if I was just sitting and listening to a great story teller unraveling a tale. I loved every minute of his delivery.

Must have for Warcraft fans.

Basically covers the retcon for Illidan Stormrage during the Outland business. Also acts as a back story to the Demon Hunter storylines.

I found this to be one of the better narrated audiobooks, I've ever purchases, so that's a plus as well.

A must read for WoW players

I tried imagining I didn't play the game and I think I would have still enjoyed it. But there's no doubt that this was made for the Wow players. Great narration and build up to the final moments. This will totally change how you see both Tbc and Legion

Fantastic

First audio book, enjoyed every minute, if you enjoy burning legion lore then this is a fantastic book! The battle at the end "raid" was pretty amusing.

Thank god its not Scott Brick (sorry Scott Brick)

What made the experience of listening to Illidan: World of Warcraft the most enjoyable?

the Narrator was pretty nice, I haven't heard them on anything else, but would love to hear more from Graeme. I have grown so tired of listening to Scott Brick whine about things (no offense Scott, you have a great voice and give a great performance, but it sounds whiny to me)

What was one of the most memorable moments of Illidan: World of Warcraft?

Oh goodness that ending!

Have you listened to any of Graeme Malcolm’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

nope, but will seek him out now

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

the ending yo!

Any additional comments?

Its a Warcraft Book, better than Dawn of the Aspects, not as good as Arthas. In the same way bacon is better than ham, but not as good as steak.

More than I expected!

This was my first audible book and it lived up to more than what I expected. The application was easy to navigate and was very useful. I particularly enjoy that I can still use the functionality of features when my device times out. As my collection grows, especially within this series, I am looking forward to revisiting these books using yet another feature that will playback my favorite storylines seamlessly and in sequential order as they were meant to be read.

As a player of World of Warcraft I knew this was a book that I was going to enjoy; especially a book about one of my heroes, Illidan. From one player to another I highly recommend the World of Warcraft series of books. I found details and nuances that cannot be found within the game. These bits add an essential element that brings depth, clarity, and understanding to the game. These books are a must-have companion for any fan of the World of Warcraft universe.

Greame Malcom's performance was exceptional. Greame's tone and tempo added a layer of dimension that draws you in. His character portrayals made the characters come alive giving them depth and form. Greame's use of words and names specifically created for the World of Warcraft universe were articulate and executed with expertise. I often found myself imagining listening to an epic tale sitting by a warm hearth or campfire regailed by an old story-master and hanging on every word.

Bravo to everyone involved in creating this story and bringing it to life on Audible!

the burning crusade from illidans perspective

this was an amazing read. If you played BC, listen to this book and you'll see it from the antagonists side.

Der George R.R. Martin Effekt

Wenn man sich nicht jeden Namen und jede Figur schon aus dem Spiel gemerkt hat, fällt es schwer zu folgen. Ähnlich wie George R.R. Martin wirft das Buch mit Namen und Figuren um sich und schert sich wenig um deren Beschreibung.

Wer also die Charaktere aus World of Warcraft nicht schon kennt und sich ein bisschen Hintergrund zum Geschehen im Spiel erhofft, der sollte zumindest Google bei der Hand haben, um nicht den Faden zu verlieren.

Wonderful match to the game

I have played large parts of the told story in world of warcraft burning crusade and was surprised how familiar it felt even years after. This my judgement might not quite objective. ☺️

Eine Runde Geschichte für WoW-Fans

Mir als WoW-Spieler und Fan der WoW-Lore hat diese Geschichte um Illidan viel Freude bereitet und mir im Nachgang zur mittlerweile älteren Expansion "The Burning Crusade" eine Rahmenhandlung gegeben, die mir so nicht bewußt war. Unteranderem bekam ich auch eine Antwort auf meine Frage, warum der Spieler eigentlich das tat, was er tat. (Und ja, der Spieler wird erfreulicherweise indirekt eingebaut.... aber mehr so als Nebendarsteller ;) )

Weniger Freude bereitete mir der Sprecher Graeme Malcolm... er spricht zwar klar und deutlich, aber er hat es für mich nicht geschafft, eine spannende Atmosphäre zu schaffen. Teilweise wirkte sein Sprachrhythmus auf mich sogar einschläfernd... bei Passagen, die eigentlich spannend waren.
Symptomatisch und perfekt zusammenfassend für seinen Stil war für mich seine Interpretation / Version des mittlerweile schon ikonischen Ausrufs "You are not prepared!"...
Diesen sprach er als einen Satz von vielen... wie einen Satz, der halt da steht und vorgetragen werden muss.

Für WoW-Fans empfehlenswert... in der OV vielleicht aber eher als Buch und eher weniger als Hörbuch. Die deutsche Version kenne ich nicht.
