Behind the legend stands a being hungry for justice and vengeance as the adventure, intrigue, and heroism of World of Warcraft, the global phenomenon, rise to a new level.

You are not prepared.
Illidan Stormrage is one of the most powerful beings ever to walk the lands of Azeroth. He is also one of the least understood. Behind his legend, beneath his enigmatic mission, lies a brilliant mind whose machinations are comprehended by few—and trusted by even fewer. Illidan’s righteous reign of justice and vengeance has begun.
Long ago, the night elf sorcerer Illidan infiltrated the demonic Burning Legion to ward off its invasion of Azeroth. Instead of hailing him as a hero, his own kind branded him the Betrayer, questioning his intentions after he appeared to aid the demon lords. For ten thousand years, he languished in prison—vilified, isolated, but never forgetting his purpose.
Now the Legion has returned, and there is only one champion who can truly stand against it. Released from his bonds, Illidan prepares for the final confrontation in the alien realm of Outland, gathering an army of grotesque fel orcs, serpentine naga, cunning blood elves, and twisted demon hunters to his side. He alone knows what deeply hidden motives guide his hand; he alone understands the price that must be paid to defeat the enemies of creation. Yet as before, he is assailed by those who see his schemes as a cynical quest for power, including the night elf Maiev Shadowsong, his former jailor. Warden Shadowsong and her Watchers have pursued the Betrayer to Outland to exact retribution for his crimes, and she will not rest until Illidan is in her custody . . . or in his grave.

Very well written, it brings so much life and depth to the game's geography, making the in-game locations feel extremely shallow in comparison.

This book was excellently written. It goes into great details of the in between lore during "The Burning Crusade" game. The narrator does a fantastic job voicing the character of the book and is without a doubt the best choice for this story. I couldn't put this audio book down and, I finished it in two days. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves the lore of The Warcraft universe.

The narrator has an excellent voice; fits Warcraft /very/ well. The book itself is one of the best of the Warcraft novels. Very interesting characters that I had grown to both care for, and hate. An overall great experience.

I really enjoyed the book. It was great to hear the lore right before the fall of the Black Temple. Makes me like and understand Illidan and Maiev's characters and thoughts even more. The narrator did a decent job with only 2 mispronounced names I caught. I feel the book would of been even better if Scott Brick would of narrated it.
