ramblings from a mad fedora'd writer
a nice review of Cycle of Hatred ten years later
My World of Warcraft novel Cycle of Hatred is my most successful book, which I know has a lot more to do with the logo on top of the front cover than the byline on the bottom of it, but it's still nice to see that it's getting readers -- a decade after its release, the book is still in print -- and I just came across this nice review by "Sharp" on the Into the Dragon's Cave blog of the book!

Money quote:
If you’re a fan of Warcraft and you want to learn more about this world or your favourite characters, that’s the book for you. Probably the best Warcraft novel I’ve ever read. If you’re new to this universe, I think this is a good place to start. Cycle of Hatred does a nice job in introducing you to the world, characters and previous events.

Racial conflict is the only deeper theme of this book, besides that it is a short, simple and enjoyable story. Longtime fans of Warcraft will find familiar characters and places, newcomers - a fun story about magic and demons. I enjoyed the style and narration of Mr. DeCandido, I didn’t find the book boring. It’s definitely worth checking out.
