Arthas: Rise of the Lich King by Christie Golden

Recently I was at the Oregon coast for a couple of days of rest and relaxation. During my time there I picked up a copy of Christie golden’s hardback novel World of Warcraft: Arthas: Rise of the Lich King .

Arthas: Rise of the Lich King, a novel by Christie Golden

As a big fan of science fiction and fantasy over the years I can tell you with complete sincerity that Christie Golden has done a masterful job with this novel. It is perfect for players of the game who have wondered exactly why Durneholme was destroyed, why Undercity is in the old captial of Lordareon, how and why Arthas’s relationship with Jaina Proudmoore is so important, and how it is possible for a powerful and charismatic young man (that is similar to Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader)  to fall so far from grace.

 

The novel is a light read, so its perfect for that brief weekend at home or at the beach. I recommend it. It is incredibly fun imagining this tale in a world that our characters have traveled so thoroughly!
