Update: World of Warcraft: ARTHAS has made # 16 in the New York Times Bestsellers List.  The Rankings reflect sales, for the week ending April 25.  This will show up on the New York Times Bestsellers list next Sunday under the Best Sellers Fiction category. Congratulations to Christie Golden and Blizzard Entertainment !

AMAZING !!! Recently, Blizzard Entertainment and Simon & Schuster, Inc. premiered the launch of World of Warcraft: ARTHAS, Rise of the Lich King on April 21.  It is been only 8 days since it launched, and I just got word from the editor that the ARTHAS Collector’s edition is close to being sold out. If you were planning to get one, you’d better do it now! Considering there were only 10,000 copies of the Collector’s Edition, this is awesome news not only for Blizzard, the publisher and Christie, but for fans who will own the limited edition of the first Warcraft hardcover. It has a special collectible value.

Back on March, World of Warcraft: Night of the Dragon reached its fourth printing.  WoW: Arthas is very likely to follow the same trend of best sellers.  This book will impact the overall experience of fans who are preparing to face Arthas in the Icecrown Citadel. Allows you to understand the tragic life of the once noble paladin and prince of Lordaeron.  The end of the book will leave many fans in shock when you find out what transpired within the Lich King’s mind during his four years hibernation prior to the events of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King.

In his dream, three entities battle for a sense of control: Arthas, Ner’zhul and the boy … who players know as Matthias Lehner (Arthas’s last remnants of humanity). Grab your Arthas Collector’s Edition while supplies last—and trust me, not many are left.
