free download Warcraft Durotan

In the world of Draenor the strong and fiercely independent Frostwolf Clan are faced with increasingly harsh winters and thinni The narrator was excellent and I always enjoy Golden s writing There was a discrepancy in the story though If you have read Rise of the Horde there is a story of Durotan and his best friend Orgrim being saved by a draeni hunting party but in this one it is implied that Durotan s first interaction with draeni is as an adult That point wasn t crucial to the story so my nerd girl sensibilities were a bit agitated about it If you haven t read any of the Warcraft stories and are looking for a starting place this would be a good one to pick up if you don t want too much backstory on the world of Draenor If you really want a detailed beginning I HIGHLY recommend picking up Rise of the Horde if you can find it or the anthology Chronicles of War which has it as the first book It s what got me hooked on this fantastic series Full review to come

Warcraft Durotan

Ieftain must make an impossible decision Abandon the territory pride and traditions of his people or lead them into the unknown This is most definitly a must for fans the WarCraft movie particularly those who liked or want to know about the Frostwolves Draenor andor orcs Also for those who appreciate orcs in general both of which I am The WarCraft and by extension the WoW universe is as rich as it is convoluted so this may not be the book for purists of the game as it does change some canon for the movie universe that hopefully continues fingers crossedThe book follows the events that lead to a long series of tragic trials that Frostwolves and all of Draenor which eventually comes to the beginning of the movie The dramatic irony is strong in this book and at times I found myself shouting in my head of course to try and curb unwise decisions In terms of content its typical fantasy trash not to say its bad trash can be goodexcuse my wording I do really love this book with most outcomes predicable not aided by the fact that if you know anything of WarCarft lore you know nothing is going to end well for anybody That being said two events genuinely surprised me although this may be due in part to me losing myself in the bookI loved all of the main characters and wanted to save them all This totally would have been a 55 had the OTP ship sailed OrgrimDurotan FTW 3 but amazingly I did not hate DrakaReally that is all there is to say Fans of orcs WarCraft particularly the movie universe and those looking for a uick romp in a Fantasy world though a different perspective enough of frail humans flouncy elves and stumpy hobbitshalflings take a dive into the world of Draenor Say it with me Zug Zug

Ng herds When Gul'dan a mysterious outsider arrives in Frostfire Ridge offering word of new hunting lands Durotan the Clan's ch Review also published here We all knew that changes would be inevitable for the upcoming Warcraft movie The lore is convoluted in a lot of ways and with the previous expansion to World of Warcraft Warlords of Draenor things got even complicated for the early days of the orc tribes before their exodus to Azeroth Adding time travel didn t help eitherAs a result I d recommend putting all you know aside for Warcraft Durotan preuel novel to the movie Things have been changed and adjusted to make the material approachable to a new audience and while hardcore fans may groan about it at first I believe it is a good thing overall Let the movie franchise stand separate and just nod in recognition when you encounter familiar elements or easter eggs You ll be happier that way Durotan s main concern is the Orc Chieftain the book is named after and his Frostwolf Tribe First presented as the heir to the clan s leadership Durotan is soon forced to take on his father s role himself and find ways to deal with the world s changing nature As the hunts grow less successful and the elements themselves turn against the orcs a warlock called Gul dan appears to offer the Frostwolves a choice Join him and his Horde and leave the world of Draenor behind or die alongside the doomed realmGul dan however is not to be trusted so Garad and his son Durotan both refuse him and decide to stay true to their own identities and brave the seasonsAs a result the bulk of the story deals with the changing ways of the Frostwolves to cope with colder winters scarce food supplies and the forces of nature unleashed as well as rival orc clans that seemingly turned to cannibalistic attitudes to survive Durotan has to come into his own as the legendary chieftain that he is destined to be Maintaining his authority is challenging as is keeping up the morale of his whole clan as well as balancing the old traditions with new ideas needed for survivalIt really is a hero s journey to greatness a character piece and showcase of what made the Horde leave Draenor for Azeroth The prologue sets the tone for the novel firmly rooting it around the Frostwolf Clan s respect for nature and the spirits That theme is maintained throughout which I loved Experiencing shaman Drek Thar commune with the elements seeing Durotan find love or feeling the deep friendship between orc and wolf all of these parts I found enjoyable and satisfyingSure it isn t the same story we already knew about the characters The roles of many of them are very different from the games but taken together they are all working in their positions and felt well balanced and properly used to make the journey of the Frostwolves an exciting and relatable one It is a classic tale of hardships to be overcome that can be enjoyed by anyone I believe No further knowledge is reuired to understand the struggles of Durotan and the easy writing style helps making it even accessible Even if you have never even heard of Warcraft before this book and by extension the upcoming movie or its novelization could be an ideal starting pointIt must have been difficult for Christie Golden who has a few Horde related books to her name already Lord of the Clans especially to set aside all her pre existing knowledge and expectations for the characters to write this novel but I am glad that she did It is a success in my eyesUnto the Dark Portal and off to Azeroth I say I ll be looking forward to reading the Movie Novelization by the same author and have to say that for the first time I am actually excited for the movie

    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum Durotan is the official preuel novel to the Warcraft movie set to hit theaters later this summer As a fan of the game franchise I almost feel like I have an obligation to go out and see this film though whether or not it’ll actually be good remains to be seen Call me cynical but I’ve been burned way too many times by underwhelming movie adaptations and so while part of me is excited

    I wasn't expecting much from this story but it wound up being an excellent addition to the lore It tells the original history of the Frostwolf clan but in doing so it makes some of the things that you see in the Warlords of Draenor expansion of the game make sense I was able to easily relate to the characters and their struggle for survival and was even heartened to see the evidence of the coexistence between the Draenei and the O

    A Surprisingly Good Tale Even for Non Gamers or Perhaps Especially for ThemAside from one multi hour binge of the original I have not played the Warcraft game I've dabbled in Starcraft again on a binge or two that showed me how addictive these games can be but I am not well versed in the gameAnd perhaps this is why Warcraft Durota

    I've played World of Warcraft for almost 9 years and I was not sure what to expect of a book that was based on the upcoming movie Warcraft The Beginning It's definitely a departure from the established Lore of the game The
