Jafar al-Sharif are now racing against time to complete their appointed
task of gathering the pieces of the Crystal of Oromasd and defeating
the evil forces of Rimahn. But the path is perilous as they must visit
an island that is not as it appears, learn the secrets of the City of
Faces and walk into Mount Denavan, the home of the daevas themselves --
and if this wasn't enough, they must overcome a final betrayal from a
member of their own party!

This is Volume IV of the Parsina Saga, concluding a journey
through a world of djinni, flying carpets and high adventure in exotic
realms -- with the fate of the world at stake.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • An all-new, official prequel novel to The Battle for Azeroth, Blizzard Entertainment’s next expansion to the critically acclaimed World of Warcraft videogame.

Azeroth is dying.

The Horde and the Alliance defeated the demonic Burning Legion, but a dire catastrophe is unfolding deep below the surface of the world. There is a mortal wound in the heart of Azeroth, struck by the sword of the fallen titan Sargeras in a final act of cruelty.

For Anduin Wrynn, king of Stormwind, and Sylvanas Windrunner, warchief of the Horde and queen of the Forsaken, there is little time to rebuild what remains and even less to mourn what was lost. Azeroth’s devastating wound has revealed a mysterious material known as Azerite. In the right hands, this strange golden substance is capable of incredible feats of creation; in the wrong ones, it could bring forth unthinkable destruction.

As Alliance and Horde forces race to uncover the secrets of Azerite and heal the wounded world, Anduin enacts a desperate plan aimed at forging a lasting peace between the factions. Azerite jeopardizes the balance of power, and so Anduin must gain the trust of Sylvanas. But, as ever, the Dark Lady has her own machinations.

For peace to be possible, generations of bloodshed and hatred must be brought to an end. But there are truths that neither side is willing to accept and ambitions they are loath to relinquish. As Alliance and Horde alike grasp for the Azerite’s power, their simmering conflict threatens to reignite all-out war—a war that would spell doom for Azeroth.

Praise for Before the Storm

“This is easily the best book in the World of Warcraft series, and I don’t say that lightly. . . . It’s so much more than a tie-in novel. . . . It’s a beautiful book.”—Blizzard Watch
”Blasfemo... altamente ofensivo” y MUY divertido. Herodotus Shapiro ha tenido una semana increíblemente mala. Su mujer lo ha abandonado. Hacienda lo está buscando por unos miles de dólares. Su casa y librería terminó ardiendo. De camino a casa de su hermano le multaron por exceso de velocidad. Y ahora su coche lo ha dejado colgado en medio del desierto enfrente de una enorme mansión. ¿Qué podría ir peor? Ahora su mundo da un giro inesperado. La mansión tiene un muñeco de nieve en la entrada en medio del desierto en pleno julio. La casa, mucho mayor desde dentro que vista desde fuera, es propiedad de Polly, la más extraordinariamente bella mujer que él ha visto jamás. Polly es acróbata, chef, psicóloga, consultor financiero internacional, médico un mujer con Dios sabe que otros increíbles talentos. Posee una alucinante biblioteca, una colección de arte con obras de arte de todo el mundo y una copia de una película desconocida de los Hermanos Marx. El papel de váter es de seda. Y parece que tiene algunos planes misteriosos para él... *** ”¡Cuidado con el Decálogo! Los lectores no tendrán problemas en identificarse y empatizar con el protagonista, una historia clásica narrada con ingenio, sabiduría y un toque falaz, y con la estrella invitada más interesante que podrías tener... ¿por aquí? Quizás los escritores que quieran intentar escribir un libro como ¡Polly! Alucinarán con su audacia (aquellos que repiten hasta la saciedad siempre lo mismo).” Spider Robinson, coautor de ”Variable Star” por Robert A. Heinlein y Spider Robinson *** ¡POLLY! Con mucho orgullo recibió la Medalla al Mejor Autor Indie y recibió 5 estrellas como Favorito de los Lectores.
