Time for a new book. This time it’s Illidan by William King.
Yep, I’m taking a short break from my Witcher craze to read a World of Warcraft tie-in novel. After all, WoW was my first gaming obsession and I’m still not through with reading all the books I have acquired over the last 14 years. And since Illidan is one of my favorite villains/antiheroes, I decided to read another one about him and hope it goes better than War of the Ancients.
(Hint: That one ends with the world being ripped apart and Illidan thrown in prison for 10.000 years…)
by William King
The Burning 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 fel orcs, naga, blood elves, and demon hunters to his side. He alone knows what motives guide his hand; he alone understands the price that must be paid. Yet as before, he is assailed by those who see his schemes as a cynical quest for power, including the night elf Maiev Shadowsong. Warden Shadowsong will not rest until Illidan is in her custody… or in his grave.
I feel like Artemis and Illidan would get along just fine. If he was able to, this tiny owl would also be yelling “You are not prepared!” at his enemies every chance he got.
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…)
Bookish, non-geeky people: You have my permission to leave. We’re going full geek now and I know some of you have mistakenly made your way here, looking for some deep insight on writing.
You were deceived.
On to the geekiness!
I decided I wanted to make a post about my Dragonstalker cosplay. No real reason, except to keep this blog alive and as an excuse to post pictures of me looking pretty enough to distract from the fact that I’m wearing a dragon as a hat. In public. Like an idiot.
Might just do one of these posts for each of my cosplays (if I get around to it).
Character: Dragonstalker Hunter*
Franchise: World of Warcraft

*not really a character, but rather just an armor set.
