Everyone’s favorite WoW character Sylvanas is getting her own book later this year, just don’t burn it

Too soon

For a lot of World of Warcraft players, the wounds from Sylvanas are still fresh.

It’s really interesting though, as the Shadowlands storyline is taking its sweet time to carry on, and it’ll be a while until we start to see more of her motivations and plotline play out. Will she redeem herself? Will it be satisfying enough of a conclusion for her tale, if there even is a conclusion anytime soon? Well it’s modern-day WoW, so the odds are about 50/50.

In the meantime, you can check out her novel, which is set to debut on November 9, 2021. The gist is that it ties directly into the events of Shadowlands, as Sylvanas wrestles with her past and how she got to be in the position she’s in with the Jailer: the presumed big bad of the new expansion that might not actually be the big bad, in classic WoW fashion.

It’ll deal with her past in some fashion, as these books tend to roll with. You can find the official synopsis below. It’s also going to be narrated by Patty Mattson, who voices the character: neat little option!

Warcraft: Sylvanas [Battle.net]

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.
