I would start this review with an admission this is a case where I feel Goodreads does its volunteer reviewers a disservice by not offering the ability to use half stars in one's rating Typically I can work around this limitation by rounding up or down depending on my overall feeling of the work in review but here the subtraction or addition of an entire star would be respectively either an insult to the uality of the book or a well intended lie on my partDispensing with that external critiue let me say that War Crimes may well be the best extended universe offering in the Warcraft vein to date Christie Golden takes on a very complex and interwoven set of stories and tackles them all with skill and aplomb I tallied about about 8 concurrent story lines all going at roughly the same time most of them centered around the main event for the which the book takes its name the trial and sentencing of war criminal Garrosh Hellscream The book manages to resolve a number of previously open uestions and at the same time asking several new ones It also manages to hit the sweet spot of resolving a primary dramatic arc without closing the proverbial book on the greater story and all of this without the dragging weight of the typical cliffhanger It's a riveting and nuanced ride and kept me up well into the night because I felt compelled to finish it despite exhaustion and the fact that I had to rise early for work the next daySo with that effusion of praise I ask myself and perhaps you also ask why not award that fifth star I can't in good conscious hand out a perfect score to a work that bears a flaw worthy enough to mention in a review the flaw being that for all the enjoyment the raw content that the book offers it also overreaches in a profound way My complaint is that every vignette in the book is made necessarily brief because it covers so many things and I found myself wanting to dwell on certain parts of the story but was shuttled along at breakneck speed by its pace It was akin to visiting a place you have always wanted to see but finding that you only get a handful of minutes to take it all in before your tour guide rushes you off to the next destination All in all it was a wonderful trip but the nagging sensation of things unseen stays with me at the close of itLong and short of it War Crimes in an excellent book that I highly recommend to fans of the Warcraft universe especially those with an interest in the rich tapestry of stories both inside and outside of the games themselves Golden acuits herself nobly in the execution of the task of closing a number of story arcs while setting the stage for a new one to come just try to remember the warning above in the process and don't attempt to force yourself to linger

To relive painful memories and even uestion 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 tria. This is a World of Warcraft courtroom drama It's played entirely serious Now either this is awesome and hilarious at once or it's suspension of disbelief breaking I lean toward the former than the latter Does it make sense that Baine Bloodhoof and Tyrande Whisperwind have either the training or formal speech patterns of a trial lawyer No Does it make sense that Azeroth has any of the legal traditions of a modern Western trial I dunno does it make sense Gnomes can build rocket trains No but we love them anyway Lastly is it fun Yes very much so Which is bizarre because this is about an unrepentant war criminal High fantasy things like keeping the Red Dragon Aspect Alexstrasza as a slave to breed mounts mana bombing Thera and blowing up dissident orcs are treated with all the gravity of their euivalents in real life War Crimes isn't a parody being a straight example of the genre but it might ualify as satire Fictional characters in an absurd but awesome fantasy world taking conduct in war seriously than Earthlings today seem to be doing The premise is Garrosh Hellscream much disliked leader of the Horde has been captured by Thrall I will never call him Go'el and Varian Wrynn This is of course references events which happened in game I always feel kind of bad for the player characters involved in these sorts of in universe climatic battles because they almost never get even referenced You'd think they'd get a mention now and then like The Heroes of Azeroth assisted them or something Oh well Garrosh committed many crimes during his tenure of Warchief from elevating the orcs above the other races destroying island nation of Thera and worse Both sides want him executed but Varian believed that having tried and found guilty would have a greater effect They thus turn to the Celestials of Pandaria to serve as neutral judges This is an astoundingly bad idea as Sylvanas points out since all loving gods are unlikely to deliver a verdict motivated by political expediency This book is almost devoid of action and instead focuses on characterization We get Jaina dealing with her continuing PTSD albeit a violent form than in real life Anduin trying to understand the monstrous activities of Garrosh so he can offer him solace as a priest and Vereesa Windrunner's simmering desire for revenge against her husband's killer We also have a nice little bit of characterization from Sylvanas who has been see sawing between good and evil for awhile now I especially liked the take of the book on her which is that Sylvanas is kinda sorta evil but really mostly insane now Some might see it as a cop out that Sylvanas is mentally ill but I think Christie Golden does an excellent job of illustrating just how twisted her thinking has become I won't spoil the ending but her redemption seems further away than ever How does redeem someone who has come to the conclusion it is better to be a monster Even if the transformation is against your will I think that's an appropriate uestion to ask as part of what makes Sylvanas so interesting is she's not just misunderstood but filled with spite and hatred from her eyes down to her toes Whether she can recover from her current state or not is anyone's guess but I'd love to see a Windrunner novel from the author I'm kind of iffy on some of the characterization Jaina Proudmoore's sudden turn toward warmonger never uite sat right with me because while the destruction of your homeland would set ANYONE on a roaring rampage of revenge the fact is that she's survived it twice before Jaina was neck deep in the zombie genocide of Lordaeron and the destruction of Dalaran in Warcraft III Reign of Chaos Jaina Proudmoore was never naive but a hardened piece of steel willing to do anything for peace She's closer to Princess Leia meets Rick Grimes than the character presented here I think Then again clearly people should be listening to my fanboy interpretations over the who has helped develop this character bett
