Rise of the Horde (World of Warcraft)by Christie Golden
Synopses & Reviews
Though the young Warchief Thrall ended the demon curse that had plagued his people for generations, the orcs still wrestle with the sins of their bloody past. As the rampaging Horde, they waged a number of devastating wars against their perennial enemy — the Alliance. Yet the rage and bloodlust that drove the orcs to destroy everything in their path nearly consumed them as well.
Long ago, on the idyllic world of Draenor, the noble orc clans lived in relative peace with their enigmatic neighbors, the draenei. But the nefarious agents of the Burning Legion had other plans for both of the unsuspecting races. The demon-lord Kil'jaeden set in motion a dark chain of events that would succeed not only in eradicating the draenei, but forging the orc clans into an single, unstoppable juggernaut of hatred and destruction.
A new race has risen in the World of WarCraft, one with power and ambition to protect its allies, lay waste to its enemies, and change the face of the land forever. But are they the means to salvation, or a dire threat to the perilous balance of power? Based on the PC game. Original.
