The shared topic on Blog Azeroth this week was Warcraft Books. I love Warcraft lore and am slowly but surely working my way through all the books, comics and short stories.
I’m follow this guide on WoW Insider written by the wonderful Anne Stickney. It’s a fantastic guide for anyone interested in reading in chronological order (which is what I am doing).
Here is a picture of my Warcraft bookshelf:
As you can see my Wind Rider, Gryphon and Pandaran are standing guard.
The books on my bookshelf and read status are:
- The Well of Eternity – read
- The Demon Soul – read
- The Sundering – read
- Rise of the Horde – read
- Curse of the Worgen – read
- The Last Guardian – read
- Tides of Darkness – read
- Beyond the Dark Portal – read
- Day of the Dragon – read
- Lord of the Clans – read
- Arthas: Rise of the Lich King – read
- World of Warcraft: Death Knight – still to read
- Dragon Hunt - still to read
- Shadows of Ice - still to read
- Ghostlands - still to read
- Cycle of Hatred - still to read
- Night of the Dragon - still to read
- Pearl of Pandaria - still to read
- Stormrage - still to read
- The Shattering – read
- Wolfheart - still to read
- Thrall: Twilight of the Aspects - still to read
- Legends Volumes 1 & 2 - still to read
- Tides of War – read
- Voljin: Shadows of the Horde - still to read
The big red folder contains all the short stories available on the Warcraft website. I won’t list them all here. Most, if not all, of these are available to download in PDF format from the site and I have printed them all off to keep. I do also own the Kindle version of Dawn of the Aspects and when it is released in physical form here in the UK then it will be added to the bookshelf too. As nice as it is to have the Kindle version I can carry everywhere easily, I miss the artwork on the cover.
Two other books which do not appear on my bookshelf but I do own are Ashbringer and Warcraft: The Ultimate Visual Guide. They are not in the picture because they are on my bedside table.
It’s really hard to pick my favourite. I so love so many part of Warcraft lore. I wish there were more written about Aegwynn. Arthas was a fantastic book, but the War of the Ancients trilogy was just so epic. I just can’t possible pick just one book.
