"Waiting On" Wednesday: World of Warcraft: Dawn of the Aspects by Richard Knaak

Hey all, "Waiting On" Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that we're excited about. 

This week, the release that I'm totally excited about is the hard-copy release of World of Warcraft: Dawn of the Aspects by Richard Knaak. It was first released serially online as separate e-books, adding up to a total amount of five mini-books. I didn't hear much buzz about it but had discovered it by surprise. I kept up with it, and am very pleased to see it released in paperback! 

Knaak is one of my two favorite authors who have written the WoW series. His battle scenes give me goosebumps all over my arms just because they are so epic. This book is about the dawn of the race of dragons. In present-times, they are an old, intelligent race, but the plot of the story takes us back to when some proto-dragons started to develop self-consciousness that distinguished them from the rest of the pack. Here, we will also see the rise of undeath at its ancient origin. 

Genre: Fantasy / Adventure / Dragons

World of Warcraft: Dawn of the Aspects

by Richard Knaak


Release Date: November 19, 2013

From Amazon: 

THE AGE OF DRAGONS IS OVER. 

Uncertainty plagues Azeroth’s ancient guardians as they struggle to find a new purpose. This dilemma has hit Kalecgos, youngest of the former Dragon Aspects, especially hard. Having lost his great powers, how can he—or any of his kind—still make a difference in the world? 

The answer lies in the distant past, when savage beasts called proto-dragons ruled the skies. Through a mysterious artifact found near the heart of Northrend, Kalecgos witnesses this violent era and the shocking history of the original Aspects: Alexstrasza, Ysera, Malygos, Neltharion, and Nozdormu. 

In their most primitive forms, the future protectors of Azeroth must stand united against Galakrond, a bloodthirsty creature that threatens the existence of their race. But did these mere proto-dragons face such a horrific adversary alone, or did an outside force help them? Were they given the strength they would become legendary for . . . or did they earn it with blood? Kalecgos’s discoveries will change everything he knows about the events that led to the Dawn of the Aspects.

Thanks for reading! What are you looking forward to this week?

    1. Hi Jackie, I'm so touched by your comment! It's so good to meet another fantasy reader! When creating the blog, I had intended it to be YA but after seeing your comment, it may be better to just be myself and let the wide range of books that I read show on my blog. Thanks for stopping by!
