Yet curiosity is a strange thing. I recently found myself wanting a book, and Warcraft: The Well of Eternity wound up in my hands. The Well of Eternity by Richard A Knaak is a strange novel, one whose flaws are abundant and easy to point out, yet I had a blast going through it again. There are elves, night elves, dragons, the undead, demons, demigods, magic, and regular gods, and all of these are introduced within the first few chapters. Perhaps the pure unashamed nonsense of the world Warcraft takes place in is what makes this novel so stupidly fun. Rhonin and Krasus are our main characters, and both embody the spirit of World of Warcraft.

The Well of Eternity

Including Assassin's Creed! I am well aware of that.

I know they are poorly written, but here's the thing. If I do not start now to read them, I will never I've been meaning to for the past 3 years and just couldn't find the method to. And by method I mean the thoughtful pondering of the fact that I have to read 20 novels and a lot of sh My sister said: Don't waste your time with the Warcraft Novels! And by method I mean the thoughtful pondering of the fact that I have to read 20 novels and a lot of short stories and comic books to get the full picture The thought of that makes my head spin.

Knaak - review by Maddalina Iuliana Mocanu! Spoilers ahead! And so did I, but I was well aware the entire War of the Ancients is more so a setting for some detective investigations on the part of two "modern" lore characters: the red dragon Krasus in his elven form and Rhonin the red haired mage that's stuck in an endless loop in Dalaran.

The investigations I am referring to is an anomaly in time and space that is forwarded to Krasus by the Aspect of Time, Nozdormu of the Bronze Dragonflight. He calls on to the task the soon to be father Rhonin who wishes nothing more than to be with his wife, Veressa and see his children be born.

They go to I think it's Deadwind Pass and encounter this anomaly that sucks them in its midsts along side the orc warrior Broxigar sent by Thrall and the elder shamans to investigate as well why couldn't they have sent someone more attuned to magic, like a SHAMAN!

The story is pretty complex for a first novel and by that I mean there are a lot of contrivances that make the entirety of the novel either halt and take a right turn towards yawnsville or just skip a beat and have the events forward in time as much as the characters constantly seem to be knocked out or unconscious.

It's ridiculous how many times this happens though. But skimming through that complexity of PACING, the story is very sluggish and barely anything happens in the span of the book. There are about points of view in the novel: 1. Krasus' joining the dragonflight in warning them of the coming of the Burning Legion 2.

Malfurion and Tyrende's struggles to keep Brox safe from both Illidan and Lord Ravencrest seriously love the dude! Rhonin doesn't even count here since his time is spent captured in a glade and asleep most of the times xD HIS story intersects with the other's, not the other way around. Of all the plot lines, Malfurion's and Tyrande's seemed the most genuine and palpable, Krasus and the dragons were a bit too formal for my tastes they did not speak like characters - I wanted to say people xD and I despised lord Xavius' points of view because I did not like that character.

He was clearly mad and evil, and no one, really? Even a baby can notice something like that! In my reviews of Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice I elaborated in the story and showed the various plot points, but here there aren't any. There's just a slow In regards to the writing Where to start? Mister Knaak doesn't have a knack xD for writing concisely. He repeats himself far too much expecially regarding notions that the reader has picked up a long long time ago.

His style is very long winded. His descriptions want to be thorough and methodical but simply end up as filler that the reader easily skimms through, because they know they will be reminded the exact same thing when the matter appears again.

Xavius has artificial eyes, chapter 2, Xavius has artificial eyes, chapter 7, did I mention his eyes are artificial? Yeah, we know Tyrende is conflicted in her decision to chose between Malfurion and Illidan.

The Well of Eternity by Richard A. Knaak

You don't have to remind us once every 30 pages, man! The characters suffer. The story suffers. What could have been a novel of suspense and pay off is instead a novel of tediousness and horrible pacing and characters we mostly care nothing for. And since this is Warcraft we are talking about you just know there are at least 7 of the named characters that have plot armour as they appear in the lore further down the line: Malfurion, Tyrende, Illidan, Rhonin, Krasus, Brox and Cenarius.

Now, let us move on to the characters. Out of all the cast in this novel, the most well rounded character is Illidan. For the short time he is in the novel, his screen time being less than that of Tyrende who is in the long run inconsequential to the overarching story, we get to see more aspects of him than any other character. He is not the brooding badass we know him from Warcraft 3, but a cocky, reckless youngster wishing in all his might to prove himself capable.

I can relate :P The next character on the list of more well rounded characters is Krasus. Meddle with the timeline? Many months have passed since the cataclysmic Battle of Mount Hyjal , where the demonic Burning Legion was banished from Azeroth forever.

But now, a mysterious energy rift within the mountains of Kalimdor propels three former warriors into the distant past -- a time long before orcs, humans or even high elves roamed the land. A time when the Dark Titan Sargeras , and his demon pawns persuaded Queen Azshara and her Highborne to cleanse Azeroth of its lesser races.

Warcraft: War Of The Ancients Book One: The Well Of Eternity

A time when the Dragon Aspects were at the height of their power -- unaware that one of their own would soon usher in an age of darkness that would engulf the world of In the first chapter of this epic trilogy, the outcome of the historic War of the Ancients is forever altered by the arrival of three time-lost heroes: Krasus , the dragon mage whose great power and memories of the ancient conflict have inexplicably diminished; the human wizard Rhonin , whose thoughts are divided between his family and the seductive source of his now-growing power; and Broxigar , a weathered orc veteran who seeks a glorious death in combat.

But unless these unlikely allies can convince the demigod , Cenarius , and the untrusting night elves of their queen's treachery, the Burning Legion's gateway into Azeroth will open anew. And this time -- the struggles of the past may well spill over into the future The events in this book take part in an alternate version of the War of the Ancients , where events are changed due to time travel.
