Episode #8 : The Shattering, the 2010 Warcraft novel by Christie Golden, lays the foundation for the world altering Cataclysm that players experienced first hand in the game’s expansion. This character-driven story details the events of major upheaval – occurring not only within the various zones around Azeroth – but also to the leadership of both Horde & Alliance. The Shattering allows readers to experience the intriguing tale of elemental mystery, political tension, the aftermath of sorrowful loss, and questions the true meaning of honor & responsibility.

Episode #7 : Vol’jin Shadows of the Horde, the newest Warcraft novel by Michael A. Stackpole, is the thoughtful telling of the Shadow Hunter’s story of growth. Set against the backdrop of the Thunder King’s awakening and the Zandalari troll invasion of Pandaria, the novel brings the powerful troll leader, Vol’jin, front and center. Published in July 2013, this novel is Stackpole’s first narrative of the World of Warcraft universe. Readers gain an insightful look into the balanced Pandarian culture, the danger lurking from the Zandalari trolls on the Isle of Thunder, and experience the transformation of Vol’jin from a broken “skull-crab” – into a forward-thinking leader.

In this episode’s Warcraft book club roundtable, podcast hosts Apsana, Skolnick, Kevin, Joshua and Sayomara gather together to discuss Vol’Jin: Shadows of the Horde.
