Arthas Menethil is the Crown Prince of Lordaeron and heir to the throne. He quickly became the most powerful figure as he emerged as the Lich King. This book tells the story of his journey from his peaceful childhood to his reign as the evil Lich King. Wars are fought and blood is shed. The journey takes us through the arctic northern wastes toward the Frozen Throne. Will his plan to destroy all life on the World of Warcraft succeed? The future is uncertain.
Not being a World of Warcraft fan, I was not very captivated by this book. I did not know any of the characters beforehand, so it was very hard for me to follow them. But I'm sure that a person who knows the storyline very well would find this to be a very entertaining read. It is action-packed and plot-oriented. But it's not only just about action - it also contains rich emotion and details. Christie Golden did a great job of portraying Arthas throughout his life. The bottom line is - if you love World of Warcraft, this 320-page book will truly be a rewarding experience!
