World of Warcraft: Troll Wars by Paul S. Kemp

French-fansite Judgehype discovered a new entry in the Amazon.de database for an upcoming novel coming from Panini. Apparently, there are plans for World of Warcraft: Troll Wars by Paul S. Kemp. He is an american fantasy author known to fans of Star Wars, and Forgotten Realms.

This novel is not yet listed in the United States, and searches online at this moment aren’t shedding any other sources except for the german-version of Amazon and another book finder list. So this was a really good (oops?) find. I am currently investigating, and will update as soon as I fetch something.

Scholastic World of Warcraft: Traveler

The Scholastic World of Warcraft: Traveler by Greg Weisman may be pre-ordered as hardcover or digitally. The book arrives on October 25 (earlier than the original November mark)

 

world-of-warcraft-traveler-coverAn epic action-adventure series set in Blizzard’s popular World of Warcraft® game franchise. Features a young cast of characters discovering the mysteries and majesty of the world around them. It’s been years since twelve-year-old Aramar Thorne, a clever boy who is never without his precious sketch book, has seen his father. So when Captain Greydon Thorne comes ashore and asks his son to join him at sea, it feels as if someone has redrawn Aram’s entire world. At sea, Aram struggles to get along with the Wavestider’s crew–especially second mate Makasa, a tough teenaged girl who has been reluctantly placed in charge of him. Just as Aram starts to get his head above water, a band of vicious pirates attack the Wavestrider, turning his world upside down once again. As Aram and Makasa try to find their way home, they encounter creatures both terrible and wondrous, and Aram will seek to understand Azeroth’s denizens as he draws them in his sketchbook, forming unlikely friendships along the way. But the journey is hindered by Greydon’s compass, which never points north. If the compass isn’t leading Aram and Makasa home–to safety–to what destiny is it leading?

World of Wacraft: Chronicle: Preview 2, Aegywnn and the Tirisgarde

The day has come at last, World of Warcraft: Chronicle, is on sale now! To celebrate, and because people had been mistaking part one for a direct transcription, this next preview will be a full excerpt from the Chronicle. In particular, this will focus on the former Guardian of Tirisfal, Aegywnn, and shed light on the mage order hall in the upcoming Legion expansion. For those familiar with  other Warcraft novels, such as Jeff Grubb’s The Last Guardian, you may notice some significant changes have been made to Aegwynn and Medivh’s backstories…

As with before, heavy spoilers for World of Warcraft: Chronicle are below the jump, so read at your own risk:

 

World of Warcraft: Chronicle Vol. 1 Preview: The Story of Lei Shen

ian-bates-the-red-shirt-guy2Greetings everyone, I’ve been given a copy of World of Warcraft: Chronicle to review and there is so much incredible lore information, I’m not sure a single review would work.

So, while I will have a proper review, I’ll also post a few summaries of some of the more groundbreaking information we’ve been given.

For our first entry, we shall look at fan favorite villain Lei Shen, the Thunder King. Of course, these will include massive spoilers. Spoilers on a “this changes the entire context of the Warcraft setting” level.

So if you want to find all this out in World of Warcraft: Chronicle for yourself, consider this a warning.

Have you ever wondered how Lei Shen truly became the Thunder King? How he died? How Uldum wasn’t always a desert? How the mogu and Zandalari came to create one of the most formidable empires Azeroth has ever seen? Read on to find out.
