YMMV: Tides of Darkness
  • Fridge Brilliance: A lot of this book is fairly straight High Fantasy good vs. evil. Just like the original Warcraft 2. Nothing wrong with that. A great deal of the book's best parts come from the fact that the Orcs will ultimately become heroes in spite of everything everything accomplished here. Furthermore, Damn near every good guy and their nation suffers a horrific end or Fate Worse than Death.
  • Surprisingly Improved Sequel: This book serves as a moderately entertaining, if somewhat bland, retelling of Warcraft 2. The book that retells WC 2's expansion pack, Beyond the Dark Portal, on the other hand, saw the addition of fan favorite author Christie Golden and saw better fight scenes, a more intricate and interesting story and better written characters.
