With the patch 9.1 Chains of Domination available on PTR, every WoW fan wonders what is going to happen to the one and only Dark Lady in the raid where she acts as the last boss. Are we in for a last-minute redemption arc where Sylvanas Windrunner turns on the Jailer? Will she be struck down by the champions of Azeroth? What does Tyrande have to do with it all?
Alas, there are no answers just yet. However, the developers from Blizzard Entertainment have taken to the official site to announce and reveal the pre-orders for a new novel coming to Azeroth’s enthusiasts: “Sylvanas” by Christie Golden, an established author with an impressive list of Warcraft books under her belt. You might have read her Lord of the Clans, Rise of the Horde, Arthas: Rise of the Lich King or other novels!
You will also be able to join Patty Mattson, the voice of Sylvanas Windrunner in World of Warcraft, as she narrates the audiobook version of the novel.
About the book:
Ranger-General. Banshee Queen. Warchief. Sylvanas Windrunner has borne many titles. To some, she is a hero . . . to others, a villain. But whether in pursuit of justice, vengeance, or something more, Sylvanas has always sought to control her own destiny.
The power to achieve her goals has never been closer, as Sylvanas works alongside the Jailer to liberate all Azeroth from the prison of fate. Her final task? Secure the fealty of their prisoner—King Anduin Wrynn.
To succeed, Sylvanas will be forced to reflect on the harrowing path that brought her to the Jailer’s side, and reveal her truest self to her greatest rival. Here, Sylvanas’ complete story is laid bare: from the breaking of the Windrunner family and her rise to Ranger-General; to her own death at the hands of Arthas and her renewed purpose in founding the Forsaken; to the moment she first beheld the Maw, and understood the true consequences of what lay beyond the veil of death. But as her moment of victory draws near, Sylvanas Windrunner will make a choice that may ultimately come to define her. A choice that’s hers alone to make.
