For many World of Warcraft players, Sylvanas' wounds are still fresh.
It's really interesting, as the Shadowlands storyline takes its time to unfold, and it will be a while before we start to see more of its motivations and plot unfold. Will she redeem herself? Will that be a satisfying enough conclusion to his story, if there's even a conclusion anytime soon? Well, it's modern WoW, so the odds are about 50/50.
In the meantime, you can check out her novel, which is set to debut November 9, 2022. The gist of it ties directly into the events of Shadowlands, as Sylvanas grapples with her past and how she could have been in this position she is with the Jailer: the alleged big bad of the new expansion who might not be the big bad, in classic WoW fashion.
It will deal with his past in some way, as these books tend to roll around. You can find the official synopsis below. It will also be narrated by Patty Mattson, who voices the character: a cool little option!
Warcraft: Sylvanas [Battle.net]
Ranger-general. Queen Banshee. War chief. Sylvanas Windrunner has worn many titles. For some, she is a hero. . . to others, a villain. But whether it was for justice, revenge, 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 free all of Azeroth from the prison of fate. His last task? Secure the loyalty 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 true self to her greatest rival. Here, Sylvanas' full story is laid bare: from the breakup of the Windrunner family and her rise to Ranger-General; to his own death at the hands of Arthas and his renewed intention to found the Forsaken; until she saw the maw for the first time, and understood the true consequences of what lay beyond the veil of death. But as her moment of victory approaches, Sylvanas Windrunner will make a choice that could ultimately define her. A choice that is his alone to make.
