The War of the Ancients

Today I thought I'd continue my book suggestions with another selection from the warcraft universe.  This time The War of the Ancients trilogy by Richard A. Knaak.

The War of the Ancients, consisting of The Well of Eternity, The Demon Soul, and The Sundering details the first invasion of the Burning Legion in Azeroth.  Brought to Azeroth by the hubris of the Night Elves, the mortal races of Azeroth must stand together under the leadership of a few familiar faces to prevent Sargeras from entering their world.

Having some previous knowledge of the warcraft universe will make this read more enjoyable, but don't let that hold you back.  You might miss a reference or two from another book, but it is still worthwhile.  I was unable to put these books down when I started to read them, it consumed me.

tl;dr: Awesome books, go read.

I enjoy books, but I'm not a fan of WoW. Regardless though, it's nice that you bring these books to people's attention!

Hmm, are those books really any good? I played all of the games including WoW for at least 4 years (quit like 1.5 years ago) but never considered reading the books... Thought they'd be shit...
