The Bookish Owl – War Crimes by Christie Golden

War Crimes Christie Golden Warcraft

I’m on to read War Crimes by Christie Golden.

I’m not exactly sure why I’m on to read War Crimes by Christie Golden, though… The last two books I read by this author made me weep like a little child, and I’m losing street cred.

This book follows the trial of Garrosh Hellscream (the one who blew up Theramore in ‘Tides of War’ – one of those books that very nearly had me sobbing in public), and since it’s a World of Warcraft tie-in novel and it takes place several expansions ago, I know the asshole won’t get what’s coming to him.

Well, at least I got to kill him in-game.

(After he ganked me like 5 times…)


War Crimes
by Christie Golden

The brutal siege of Orgrimmar is over. Alliance and Horde forces have stripped Garrosh Hellscream, one of the most reviled figures on Azeroth, of his title as warchief. His thirst for conquest devastated cities, nearly tore the Horde apart, and destroyed countless lives.

Now, on the legendary continent of Pandaria, he will stand trial for his transgressions. Renowned leaders from across the world have gathered to witness this historic event. As the trial unfolds, agents of the bronze dragonflight present shocking visions of Garrosh’s atrocities. For many of those in attendance, these glimpses into history force them to relive painful memories and even question their own innocence or guilt. For others, the chilling details stoke the flames of their hatred.

Unbeknownst to anyone, shadowy forces are at work on Azeroth, threatening not only the court’s ability to mete out justice… but also the lives of everyone at the trial.

The Bookish Owl – Before the Storm by Christie Golden

Warcraft Before the Storm Christie Golden Owl

I’m getting a lot more reading done ever since I started doing these posts. If only owl photos could improve my writing speed as well!

Next up on my reading list is Before the Storm by Christie Golden. It’s a media tie-in for World of Warcraft and I’m waaay behind on my WoW lore these days. I need to up my game if I want to stay the undisputed champion of World of Warcraft Trivial Pursuit (yes, that’s a thing and I’m embarassingly good at it).

This book deals with the conflict that sparks the story in the latest expansion to the game, Battle for Azeroth, and seeing as the expansion has been out since last summer, it’s probably about time I figure out what’s going on.

Artemis clearly doesn’t understand what’s going on, but he’s looking suitably fierce in the photo (mostly because he doesn’t understand why I kept putting back the book he kept knocking over…)
