Description

That night, visions mocked Vol’jin. He found himself in the midst of fighters, each of whom he recognized. He’d gathered them for that final assault on Zalazane, to end his madness and free the Echo Isles for the Darkspears. Each of the combatants took on aspects of a jihui cube, faced to be at their maximum power. Not a fireship among them, but this did not surprise Vol’jin.

He was the fireship, but not yet turned to display his maximum power. This was not a fight, though desperate, in which he would destroy himself. Aided by Bwonsamdi, they would slay Zalazane and reclaim the Echo Isles.

Who be you, this troll, who be having memories of a heroic effort?

Vol’jin turned, hearing the click of a cube snapping to a new facing. He felt trapped inside that cube, translucent though it was, and shocked that it had no values on any face. “I be Vol’jin.”

Bwonsamdi materialized in a gray world of swirling mists. “And who be this Vol’jin?”

The question shook him. The Vol’jin of the vision had been the leader of the Darkspears, but was no longer. Reports of his death would just now be reaching the Horde. Perhaps they had not yet gotten there. In his heart, Vol’jin hoped his allies had been delayed, just so Garrosh could dwell one more day wondering if his plan had succeeded.

That did not answer the question. He was no longer the leader of the Darkspears, not in any real sense. They might still acknowledge him, but he could give them no orders. They would resist Garrosh and any Horde attempt to conquer them, but in his absence, they might listen to envoys who offered them protection. They could be lost to him.

Who do I be?

Vol’jin shivered. Though he thought himself superior to Tyrathan Khort, at least the man was mobile and not wearing sick-robes. The man hadn’t been betrayed by a rival and assassinated. The man had clearly embraced some of the pandaren way.

And yet, Tyrathan hesitated when he should not have. Some of it was a game to make the pandaren underestimate him, but Vol’jin had seen through that. The other bits, though, as he’d hesitated after Vol’jin complimented a move, those were genuine. And not something a man be allowing in himself.

Vol’jin looked up at Bwonsamdi. “I be Vol’jin. I know who I was. Who I gonna be? That answer only Vol’jin could be finding. And for now, Bwonsamdi, that be enough.”

A good read for Warcraft players.

I'd recommend this book to other WoW players, especially those interested in current lore. The story would be lost on one who does not play the game, as the book does not cover a lot of background. Being a player, I do not think this is a bad quality, but it should be known.

The story is very Horde centered, but the book is primarily about Vol'jin, so that should be expected.

All taken in, I enjoyed the story very much! The voice acting was well done, plus the names all seemed to be pronounced correctly. Again, I recommend this book to other WoW players familiar with 5.3 content!

Awsome book

Top notch story,I play alliance and have no love for the horde, So I thought I'd give it a go as I've listened to all the other warcraft books. To my surprise it was one of the best books I've listened too. It had me engrossed from start to finish, with top notch narration from Scott brick as always. A must read/listen for all warcraft fans (even if your alliance :p) just stay away from the stormrage piece of **** book

This is Vol'jin deserved to become Warchief

This novel precedes the Siege of Orgrimmar, and sets up the Dark Spear rebellion very well. I'm sad Vol'jin didn't get to spend longer as Warchief, he stood beside Thrall in Orgrimmar when I first started playing WoW, and that Thrall chose Gorrash over him is startlingly stupid. And I'm still trying figure out why Vol'jin chose Sylvanas Windrunner as his successor.

I do be liking da book much

I was actually suprised how philosophical this book got. I really enjoyed diving into voljins mind, and seeing his character grow. Trolls just became my new favorite race. I can recommend this book absolutely.

Very good

Good book with a nice story. It is dirty, bloody and exciting. I really liked this book. It tells a lot about Vol'jins character. It also gives you a little insight on the story of the Mogu and zandalari trolls.

I strongly recommend it. A lot better than other Warcraft Books in my opinion.

Extrem langatmig und unspannend, zu philosophisch

Obwohl ich Mists of Pandaria sehr gern gespielt habe und die Story sehr interessant war, war das Hörbuch leider viel zu uninteressant, langatmig und unrelevant. Selbst Kämpfe waren sehr langweilig, ich konnte es kaum erwarten es abzuschließen.

Leider ist es dazu auch noch total übertrieben philosophisch. Alles was gesprochrn wird, wird sofort analysiert, immer in mehrdeutigen Fabeln gesprochen und selbst ein einfaches Brettspiel wird schnell zu einer philosophischen Analyse.

Die Kämpfe sind extrem detailliert beschrieben, ist also nichts für jemanden, der nicht beschrieben bekommen möchte wie ein blutüberströmter Troll versucht, seine Eingeweide in seinen aufgeschlitzen Bauch zurück zu stecken.

Der Sprecher selbst war aber grandios und hat die Pandaren, Menschen und auch Trolle unfassbar toll gesprochen, letztere sogar mit original afrikanischem Akzent.
