The digital version of the upcoming World of Warcraft: Traveler #3 is coming on December 26, 2019. Pre-orders for World of Warcraft: Traveler #3 are now open.
I recommend to pre-order. The usual price is $9.99, but the pre-order price is 50% ($4.99).
There are a few noteworthy observations we can infer from the book listing:
- The original author of the previous two books in the World of Warcraft: Traveler series: Greg Weisman, has been replaced with Madeleine Roux (ASYLUM series).
- The second book had a subtitle: The Spiral Path. However, the third book is missing a subtitle. Maybe we might hear about it at a later time when the official front cover artwork is revealed.
- The book description says this is the last book of the series.
One last thing I need to share with fans. A few months ago, during my attendance to the New York Comic Con 2018, I asked Scholastic senior editor Chloe Fraboni during the Q&A if there were plans to publish new books based on World of Warcraft, StarCraft, Diablo or Overwatch.
After confirming World of Warcraft: Traveler #3 by an author she couldn’t tell anyone about, she responded: “We have some new stuff going on with Blizzard that I can’t say what property it is for. But I am really excited about it.”
So there you have it… there is a new Scholastic/Blizzard project that today is still a mystery. However, I have to point out that earlier in the NYCC 2018 Scholastic AFK Panel, she mentioned she fulfilled one of her dreams by meeting … Jeff Kaplan during her visit to the Blizzard HQ. Who knows.
Aramar Thorne and Makasa Flintwill have borne their fair share of troubles. Ever since Aram’s father entrusted him with an enchanted compass, Aram and Makasa have traveled the extraordinary lands of Azeroth, seeking out the shards of a legendary weapon: the Diamond Blade. The truth behind the weapon, and the terrible doom it seeks to prevent, seems to have been lost at sea with Captain Greydon Thorne. But not all secrets are meant to stay buried.
As the pair struggles to stay two steps ahead of Malus and the Hidden-dangerous mercenaries and sorcerers who’ll stop at nothing to gain the compass-Aram and Makasa have assembled a powerful band of their own allies. From lively goblins and fantastic creatures to mighty druids and mysterious dryads, people are drawn to the talented young artist and the formidable fighter-a fortunate fact. For in their most desperate hour, Aram and Makasa will need all the help they can get to prevent Azeroth from being plunged into eternal darkness and chaos.
This epic conclusion to the World of Warcraft: Traveler trilogy is penned by New York Times bestselling author Madeleine Roux and features stunning new artwork throughout.
