    2. 2.5 starsThe grand city of Stormwind has fallen. The dark tide of orcs sweeps over the lands of Azeroth, while the survivors of the war flee across the sea to seek aid in Lordaeron. But change is being made among the orcs. The Warchief of the Horde, Blackhand the Destroyer, has been betrayed and killed by his second-in-command; Gul'dan and the Shadow Council have been taken completely by surprise. And the Horde marches on under the command of its new Warchief Orgrim Doomhammer.This book explains [...]

    3. this book is a good book and one of the best ive ever read it is about the human civilazation and the sons of lothar defending their home kingdom against the horde. Anduin Lothar is the leader of the alliance defense and his close allies help him defend against the orcish horde that treaten the kingdom of azeroth and its capitol Stormwind City. The kingdom of Arathi is far up north and it is farther away and safer than the kingdom of stormwind. the kindom of lordaeron is the kingdom that has cre [...]

    4. Another pretty enjoyable Warcraft novel. Pretty simple writing, but good enough to get the point across. The story was fun, as usual, and I enjoyed learning about the lore of the Second War and Lothar, Turalyon, and Khadgar.

    5. I have mixed feelings about Tides of Darkness . It had the potential to be the best book of the series (out of 3, as I read them in chronological order), but unfortunately it turned out to be far from flawless. The best thing about this novel is that it shows us how the races of Warcraft started to form the Alliance and the Horde as we know them now. We see how the orcs and the trolls start to work together, Gul'Dan brings us the first set of death knights, and on the other side Rosenberg tells [...]

    6. Gotta say that I quite enjoyed the book overall. The escapades of the early Horde and the early Alliance provide some of the lore-defining details that are background to World of Warcraft. Orgrim Doomhammer is an interesting antagonist, not quite a good guy, per se, but not an evil savage by any means. His code of honour when coupled by his plan of hostile invasion and complete disregard for the lives of his enemies made him a more complicated villain than you usually get within the Warcraft uni [...]

    7. If Rise of the Horde tells the unfortunate story of the corrupt creation and madness of the Horde, Tides of Darkness tells the glorious tale of the rise of the Alliance in response to the massive Horde forces rushing towards Lordaeron from the Dark Portal. Great cast of characters: King Terenas Menethil II; Lord Anduin Lothar, Champion of Stormwind and Commander of the Alliance; Khadgar of Dalaran; Turalyon, Knight of the Silver Hand; Uther the Lightbringer; High elf Alleria Windrunner (and her [...]

    8. The epic battle between the blood-thirsty orcs and the lion-hearted humans has been beautifully depicted in this book. Action packed, this book provides entertainment, even more so if you are a WoW player. The lore is also abundant in this book and explains several things found in the game. It also links the previous books, including the Warcraft novels. All in all, it is well written, eloquent and is truthful to the game version of the characters described, as well as the places and landscapes [...]

    9. World of Warcraft, the greatest game that existed, i have been playing this online sensation for 3 years now. Aleeze: Relm Fenris. Every since the start of the game, its lore sparked my interest, i cant get enough. I have read most of the books and this one has to be my favorite out of the bunch. For the Alliance!

    10. کتابی فوق العاده و بسیار زیبا و خوندنش برای کسانی که علاقه به خوندن ژانر فانتزی شدیدا توصیه میشه. من که عاشقشم.

    11. I found Tides of Darkness to be a gripping, well-rounded book. The plot doesn't follow the sort of traditional format where all the fun stuff happens in the last third of the book, which only adds to the enjoyment. World of Warcraft players might want to keep in mind, however, that Tides of Darkness was written in a time before the current map of the Warcraft universe was established, so some of the locations are slightly out of place.Rosenberg's battle scenes are probably the beast part about T [...]

    12. In my attempt to familiarize myself better with the Warcraft lore, I picked Tides of Darkness up.In terms of chronological order, this is one of the first books that you want to be reading, right after the events at Karazhan and the unveil of Sargeras' scheme through Medigh. The book picks up right after the Horder enters Azeroth and is focused around their efforts to take over the known world to them. Some of the noteworthy characters that make their 'debut'(or have their spotlight moments) in [...]

    13. World of Warcraft: Tides of Darkness, by Aaron RosenbergI read this immediately after finishing "Rise of the Horde," by Christie Golden, and as such it provides a continuation of what happens after the orcs entered the Dark Portal. It is the story of the Second War, when the orcs tried to take over Azeroth but were stopped by the Alliance of humans, dwarves, and elves. "Tides of Darkness" is a novelization of Warcraft II, and so is good background information for players new to the Warcraft univ [...]

    14. I'm thinking this book may be what most people play the game for. Lots and lots of fighting and descriptions of fighting. Not my cup of tea at all.I'm in it for the characters. Turalyon and Alleria delivered for me. I loved how real everything was through them. Even though they were about to fight for their very lives, they still had a strange attraction going on. And that really is how life is, regardless of what is going on, our "human-ness" still creeps in. I really enjoyed Turalyon's struggl [...]

    15. Tides of Darkness for me was an interesting read because I've played World of Warcraft for so long it was easy to vision the places and some of the people in the book. I have not paid much attention to a lot of the lore in the game (I know the top level stuff) so getting deeper into the history of Warcraft and seeing certain things like the development of the Alliance and the first sittings of the Horde develop in the book were fun.Some have said the beginning was slow but I enjoyed the back and [...]

    16. This was an entertaining book in warcraft series. I have been playing the warcraft game for years and that led me to read the book series. It was wonderful to get to know the story of the game characters, for example in this book Alleria the windrunner, Guldan the warlock. The story begins with the arrival of orcs to the human world via the dark portal and continues with the attack on the human cities. It finally ends with the victory of humans over the orcs and the twist of the eye of sargaraus [...]

    17. Tides of Darkness is a straight-up Warcraft II novelization, the sort of thing that you probably could have found on Fanfiction back in the day with 500 reviews and tons of people requesting more chapters about Ogrim Doomhammer in the comments section. As you might have guessed with a description like that, the writing is kinda shoddy. But if you were one of those Warcraft fans who clicked on your little orc peons a billion times until they stopped saying "Zug Zug!" and started yelling "Stop pok [...]

    18. In a story describing the continent-spanning war between The Horde and The Alliance featuring combatants from several different races from two different worlds, there are a grand total of only three female characters in this whole book - the Windrunner sisters. Of those three, two have only a single brief appearance and the third exists only as a half-hearted love interest for a male protagonist. All three characters disappear without explanation as the story approaches its climax.Frustrating as [...]

    19. Awesome book of the big war of orcs and humans. Good to tell the story of Ogrim Doomhammer and Anduin Lothar.It tells and early story of the global history of warcraft, mainly how the hatred for the orcs started in the high elven society, the first conflicts of the human kingdoms of the north (lordaeron, gilneas, and so on).There are also important parts regarding Gul'Dan and its twisted plans. For any warcraft fan it's a must read. Nevertheless I would council to start reading warcraft novels i [...]

    20. Warhammer #10.Azeroth has been destroyed by the Orcish Horde, and knight champion Anduin Lothar has led his people and his remaining army to the shores of Lordaeron. There an alliance is agreed between nations with the purpose of destroying the Horde forever. Along the way further bonds are sewn between Elves and Dwarves.This is by far the best WoW novel I have read to date. Great plot, fascinating characters, and excellent prose. I would recommend this to all fantasy lovers, not just those who [...]

    21. Dieser Band hat mir bis jetzt am besten Gefallen. Ich fand die kriegerischen Auseinandersetzungen sehr gut geschildert und beschrieben und konnte Verstrebungen zu anderen Büchern die ich bereits gelesen habe erkennen. Besonders begeistert war ich von Tularyons Charakter und auch das Wiedersehen mit Kadghar und König Terenas hat mir große Freude bereitet. Langsam bräuchte ich allerdings eine Karte

    22. Ever wanted to have a recap of Warcraft 2: Tides of Darkness Story in a wiki-like way, this book is for you then. Being familiar with the source material it was nice to remember how Warcraft story went about in its earliest days. The book is not without its flaws, in particular it's just a re-telling of the games story without much characterization and depth to the characters, but it was an enjoyable and quick read nevertheless.

    23. The book is great, nice story overall. My only disappointment is concerning Doomhammer, I always saw him as a mighty orc, but the way Gul'dan plays him as fool is quite embarassing. For the Horde fans, I was looking forward to see the destruction of Capital City. Another thing I missed was Perenolde's treachery, the book took little concern on the subject but as I wrote before, the book is great.

    24. The overall story is decent and the characters are quite likable. The storytelling is very poor however. I don't know if it is because it is an adaptation of the game or just the way it was written, but every battle is extremely abrupt. No matter what side is winning, something amazing suddenly happens that turns the tide and the battle is over.Also, the romance between Alleria and Turalyon was completely pointless and out of place.

    25. ჰორდის და ალიანსის პირველი ომის აღწერა. ყველაზე მაგარი წიგნია ომზე და ბრძოლებზე რაც წამიკითხავს, დინამიური, დაბალანსებული, ეპიკური. მთავარი გმირების, რასების და მათი წინამძღოლების ხასიათ [...]

    26. An great novelization of what happened in Warcraft 2: Tides of Darkness. Lothar, Turalyon, Alleria and Khadgar make a great Alliance cast and Doomhammer & Gul'dan are interesting in their own way. I'd definitely say that the book is Alliance centered but its understandable because the orcs motivations are quite simple at this point: conquer. Really enjoyable, give it a chance.

    27. I really enjoyed reading about Doomhammer's campaign ob Azeroth trying to conquer the world for the Horde. I liked the fact that you get to read the stort from both the Alliance and the Hordes side throughout the war. It may be tilted most towards the Alliance. Yet I find it ballanced as a reading experience.

    28. This book was good for sure. I would say the only thing was that it felt like the battle lasted forever! I know it's war and it actually does last forever but for some reason the book just seemed to drag with the never ending battle. It was at least well written. I love how it shows what kind of Orc Doomhammer is.

    29. It seemed promising in the first few chapters, but when the war comes it gets a bit dull in my opinion. There are characters that i wished I'd have known better, but only got a glimpse of who they are. Others got lost in the middle of the story. In the end it gets better, but i was left with some questions. Anyway, I enjoyed this book.

    30. A little disappointing after the first books in the Warcraft universe. The story is solid, however felt like there was a little too much sequential introduction of races, back and forth from Alliance to Horde, and there was no depth or real character development. Still a good read if you are a Warcraft fan.
