    Description

    The book World of Warcraft fans have been clamoring for - the true story behind one of the Warcraft universe’s most terrifying villains, Arthas the Lich King. 

    Author Christie Golden does for Arthas what she once did for the Orc Lord Thrall in the best-selling Warcraft: Lord of the Clans, in another epic exploration of one of the key characters from the 11-million subscriber massively multiplayer online role-playing game.

    Good novel, decent narrator

    Christie Golden's work on the lore of Warcraft is essential ! Especially this one about an iconic character such as Arthas.
    Though the narration lacks of energy.

    Missed Opportunity

    I can't help to think that this is a missed opportunity for Blizzard. Arthas and his arc is by far the most well known story in Warcraft and the production of this audiobook does not do it justice. It's not that Christie Golden does a bad job reading it, it's that it just feels like someone is reading it to you instead of you yourself being immersed in the author's writing. They could have dedicated more resources to the production of this audiobook and made it 100 times what it is.

    I recommend it for the story, it's pretty good as far as teen fiction goes...but the production is definitely lacking.

    Story was great, delivery was not comparable

    Golden writes a great, gripping, and detailed story here. The surroundings are painted with precision, and events are explained more than thoroughly, leaving no stone unturned. But the delivery of the content seemed lackluster for the most part. There were times where anguish and anger were expressed excellently by Golden, but for the most part, the narration seemed feeble, almost teetering on a sense of sadness and crying that was wrought with emotion when the storyline and the context did not yield such a feeling. There was much unknowing and power written into the story, but it would seem otherwise with the tone of this iteration of the audiobook as it was. That being said, the book was written well and worth an actual read.

    Narrator

    She writes amazing books, seriously some of my favorites. But in a basically all male cast it doesn’t do the book justice, she’s kinda monotone

    Great writer terrible narrator

    I love Christie’s writing, however she is not a great narrator. You need a great narrator for a book this long.

    Monotone and lacking engagement

    After hearing the thrilling prologue narrated by Chris Metzen on a Blizzard podcast, and after having been blown away from the masterful piece that was the audio book of Before the Storm by Josh Keaton, complete with musical cues and stunning voice-work, I was severely disappointed that Golden was chosen to do the full audio book.

    It lacks all the immersion of the two prior narrators and felt dispassionate. I felt myself needing to turn it off at the 10 minute mark, lest I lose interest in the rest of the book.

    The story, however, is beautiful, tragic, and thrilling in its own right. Golden is a fantastic writer, but a lackluster narrator. I wish that Metzen himself would have finished the prologue as he had started it. You can have a listen to it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sitdg2CMiVM

    Great story

    It was a good reading but it's very hard to listen to a woman act a supposedly deep make voice. This should have been read by two people, one for male and one for female.

    Excellent

    It is exciting to see more of the Warcraft novel universe being made into audiobooks. I send my deepest thanks to everyone involved in making this happen. I don’t always have time to read physical books, so I was excited to listen to all of the Warcraft novels available so far. I binged Arthas and enjoyed it as much as the rest.

    There is something very soothing about her voice. I think the fact that she is personally invested in the story really shows in her reading. in my humble opinion, this story and its narration were top-notch

    strange audio cuts

    it's a good book. and a good voice actor.
    but sometimes it just changes the to nation mid sentence in an unnatural way, probably a cut?
