The Last Guardian by Jeff Grubb (My Favorite Warcraft Book)

warcraft the last guardian

I’ve really liked all the WoW books I’ve read so far (Day of the Dragon, Lord of the Clans and The Well of Eternity) but this one is the most ambitious and radical. It centers on a great wizard and his apprentice but is not a typical fantasy story. There are freak nasty twists and deep revelations about the the Warcraft world. It is also very sad at times and left me feeling strange. You don’t need to play the game or read the other books in the series to enjoy it. If you do play WoW or are interested in it’s story, this is definitely a great read. Sam Raimi, a WoW player himself, has promised to direct a World of Warcraft movie sometime in the future but is waiting for the right script to be written. I’m really interested to see if they involve any of the books or writers in the movie.

For no good reason, I’m going to name drop some famous WoW players: Jamie Lee Curtis, Mila Kunis, Macauley Culkin, Dave Chapelle, Adrianne Curry.
