Présentation de l'éditeur

THE BRUTAL SIEGE OF ORGRIMMAR IS OVER.

Alliance and Horde forces have stripped Garrosh Hellscream, one of the most reviled figures on Azeroth, of his title as warchief. His thirst for conquest devastated cities, nearly tore the Horde apart, and destroyed countless lives throughout the...
WORLD OF WARCRAFT®

Now, on the legendary continent of Pandaria, he will stand trial for his transgressions.

Renowned leaders from across the world have gathered to witness this historic event. As the trial unfolds, agents of the bronze dragonflight present shocking visions of Garrosh's atrocities. For many of those in attendance, these glimpses into history force them to relive painful memories and even question 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 trial.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great characterization and back story 7 mai 2014
Par Gabriela - Publié sur Amazon.com

The book was very well composed, really setting the stage and giving back story for each of the characters with the flashbacks that brought the entire story together and gave credence to everyone's motivations. There was also a lot of excellent character development. However the book asked for the reader to suspend disbelieve too many times in my opinion, such as certain characters suddenly being expert lawyers and a few other things that would be spoilers if I put them here. In the end, that's the only thing that keeps me from giving it a 5-star review, but I would definitely recommend it.

Not my favorite Golden novel but a good prequel to the upcoming expansion,"Warlords of Draenor". Feels like the ending was a bit rushed as well but still worth reading.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 World of Courtcraft 4 août 2014
Par Joseph C Bonaparte - Publié sur Amazon.com

A very good, enjoyable read from Christie Golden as she fills in the blanks left in the story by the famous MMORPG. In this novel, hated and disposed Warchief of the Horde, Garrosh Hellscream, is put on trial for his crimes against Azeroth. As no one is in doubt over Garrosh's guilt for his actions, what follows is more of a sentencing hearing to decide his fate. Meanwhile, others plot to take matters into their own hands.

Christie Golden has done very well depicting the major lore figures of Warcraft by almost making them her own since The Shattering: Prelude to Cataclysm. War Crimes continues that trend with the added bonus of showing us interactions between characters who under the usual circumstances do not get the chance to face each other in non-hostile situations. The novel largely is a courtroom episode with two faction leaders suddenly are expert litigators. This is easily forgiven though as the alternative was to make up two minor characters just for this purpose. It also has the bonus though of putting one of the faction leaders in a very awkward position. It does tie in nicely with Golden's previous Warcraft novels as well as a handful of moments from the game are referenced during the course of the trial. As it is mostly a fantastical law procedural story there is not much in the way of action scenes, but a good one does occur even though it feels a little rushed.

This is an easy recommendation for fans of the MMORPG and its lore. It is also a given that if one has already read Golden's previous World of Warcraft novels then this novel is also heavily recommended. If one has never played the game or read any Warcraft related materials at all, then this not a good place to start. To that end, I would point towards The Shattering if one is wanting to get into the story without playing the game. Overall, an enjoyable read and looking forward to future tie-in novels to World of Warcraft.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 I could have watched this on TV 31 mai 2014
Par Sandra Cosimano - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'm going to try and keep this as spoiler free as possible, but there might be a few that will leak out.

Anyway, for anyone keeping up on World of Warcraft (game, books, etc.) you will already know what this is about. This is the bridge from the Siege of Orgrimmar raid in the game and the next expansion pack "Warlords of Draenor". By now, most players know that Garrosh is spared swift execution by King Wrynn and it was decided that Garrosh should be put on trial for the atrocities he committed to the Horde and to the rest of Azeroth. This book puts together that trial.

While I thought it would be interesting to have an actual court scene played out in a fantasy world, the way it was written was too familiar of watching "Law & Order", "Matlock", or any other courtroom drama you may have watched. The prosecution was overly dramatic and the person running it was acting way out of character to bring this about. Defense didn't want the job of defending Garrosh, and did very little in the book, which rightfully showed there wasn't much to defend this particular character.

The story was predictable, everything that would play out was stated at the beginning of the book, and those that would aid Garrosh were too obvious to me. The trial was over dramatized and the lead up that would explain what's going on for "Warlords" was rather lackluster.

For someone that has been in World of Warcraft since the early years and have read each book to fill in details that weren't in the game, this was kind of a disappointment for me. My suggestion is to read it to have that bridge, but don't expect more from it.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Golden has hit Gold again. 20 août 2014
Par Thilix - Publié sur Amazon.com

Golden has to be my favorite World of Warcraft writer to date. I've followed her in other genre's and she always seems to strike gold when she does write for them. I loved the Arthas book and I eagerly snatched this book up once it came out.

The depth of the characters in this book are absolutely amazing. I've been playing WoW since right after Vanilla dropped and so I've spent the last ten years(almost) playing and watching the story evolve around the faction leaders of the Horde and Alliance. The creators of WoW do a good job, but they've struck amazing talent in Golden writing for them. The review is so very difficult to write without giving any spoilers but needless to say the depth she gives every single faction leader is amazing.

After the finish of the Siege of Orgrimmar is when the story picks up. Everything has been moved to Pandaria for the trial, a new technology/magic is being used to assist in the trial which really gives Golden an opportunity to explore certain parts of the past and bring things to light. One of the best things about this book is that it doesn't follow the standard court approach that we all see during the reruns of Law and Order(or any other justice based series). Golden took some of the standard court aspects but also really created her own idea of how the Pandarians would have a court system.

The read a good solid read and I ended up reading it in a couple of days just because I wanted to spread it out. I could have easily finished it in one sitting though if I hadn't forced myself to stop reading to take breaks. If you're a fan of the game at all I highly recommend picking up the book and reading it. Especially with Warlords just a few months away from its release date.
