Thrall: Hour of Twilight by Christie Golden is an exciting addition to the World of Warcraft story. I recently finished it and found it pretty exciting. In it we see Thrall grow as a person, the ascension of a new Aspect, an important battle with the Twilight Flight, the return of Nozdormu, and an interesting reveal about the various enemies of Azeroth. Previously I read The Shattering, also by Golden, which I enjoyed much more, but I still found Hour of Twilight to be a good read. The ending, while not a cliffhanger, didn’t seem quite right to me, but this might be due to what I know or think is to come in the next patch.
The question now is, which book do I read next? Do I read a Hugo award winner, Agent to the Stars, which I’ve been wanting to read for a while, or another World of Warcraft novel? I’m leaning towards another World of Warcraft novel – Rise of the Horde, Stormrage, or Wolfheart! Rise of the Horde would let me continue reading Golden and learning of the glorious Horde, but the either two would let me try Richard A. Knaak and get a glimpse of the Alliance.
