Amazing stories that expand on the lore of the actual games. A must have for any fan of the franchise.

As a World of Warcraft player from the days of its first launch, I made my mind p to read all the Warcraft books in order this. Not as easy as it sounds though as the original 4 are not cheap to get hold of; just an FYI if you're thinking of reading from book 1. I won't, however, be reading these back-to-back as I don't want to get burnt out on them, plus the hunting them to down, is part of the fun of reading them.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book after all... dragons. It was interesting to come across some of the two-legged characters that feature in the game too, and discover their origins (which I am sure will be covered more in-depth in later books).

A fantasy story set in the Diablo game universe that follows an adventurer that gets possessed by a demonic armor and the people who would like to take the armor for themselves. The story line is intriguing, but all the characters are cookie cutter, writing can be long winded and repetitive, and overall is unable to keep interest.

What happened to make the Dragon Aspects the Aspects? What were they before that defining moment? I am absolutely loving this series.
