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 bestselling Warcraft: Lord of the Clans, in another epic exploration of one of the key characters from the eleven-million subscriber massively multiplayer online role-playing game.

Review

"Of all the Warcraft manga, comic books, and novels I have read, Arthas has the most solid, balanced writing and best realized characters....There's much to love about this book....When it ended, I could feel the pangs in my heart as if I was one of the participants." -- WowInsider.com

"This book is an overdosed cocktail of lore and continuity that will numb your senses....I can only say one thing about this. I (beep) love this book!!!" -- Blizzplanet.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down Oct. 2 2010
Format:Hardcover
I ordered this book because I loved the warcraft computer games. More to the point I loved the character introduced in warcraft III reign of chaos Arthas Menethil. Like MacBeth he is the prime example of a tragic hero. Anyone who has played the games WC 3 and The Frozen Throne knows the fall from grace which forges the Lich King. However, if like me you wanted a back story to the relationship between the young prince and other key charcaters (Uther, Muradin and especially Jaina Proudmoore) This is the novel you seek. You are offered a glimpse of his childhood and his struggles growing up. The romantic element between him and Jaina only adds fuel to the building climax where he falls from the light into utter darkness and pure madness. Even though you know how the story will end, you cannot help wanting to read the next chapter. I was under the impression this book would last several weeks of light reading before bed. I was finished it within one. A very good piece of literature for any fan of the warcraft world. Props to Christie Golden for her portrayal of Arthas.

1.0 out of 5 stars Did not get what I ordered Dec 28 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Ordered this book in Hardcover and received it in Paperback. Was disappointed with the way Fast Media Ship handled my concerns and insulted me by firstly offering a $30 dollar refund when I paid $54.84 for the Hardcover. Canadian Us exchange is not that different and the paperback book states $8.99 U.S. I asked to wait for the Hardcover to be back in stock before I returned the paperback and they did not think that would be anytime in the future. Personally now I don't think they ever had the book in Hardcover. Eventually I called them out on the $30 refund and was countered with a $45 dollar refund. This Christmas gift was a huge bust for my son that is a gamer and a collector of these materials.
