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.

  1. […] War Crimes (Christie Golden) I enjoyed this more than I thought I would, but I will say this for the characters: Wrathion is a little shit. Kairoz is a little shit. Garrosh is a little shit. And Sylvanas is absolutely batshit insane, even if she’s, for once, doing something out of love. […]

  2. I haven’t read her WOW books, but I have read some of Christie Golden’s Forgotten Realms books and I really loved those. I’m glad you finally got to kill Garrosh in-game, even if that means you know that his comeuppance will have to wait past the end of this book. 🙂

    1. He’s such a little bitch in this book, so I might just need to go back in-game and find the quest where you get to kick his ass now….

      1. That could be fun! You can beat him up multiple times just to make up for his actions in this book.
