Massively has a terrific new interview with author Christie Golden, writer of more than a few World of Warcraft-based novels. In the interview, Golden reveals her next novel, "War Crimes", that is set to bridge the gap between Mists of Pandaria and Warlords of Draenor. Sylvanas Windrunner fans will be happy to know that her character will be part of a large subplot as well.
You know, that was actually -- when we were brainstorming, that one of my ideas to bring her [Sylvanas] in for this particular subplot which I won't spoil! And I know, because I get that all the time, I get "When are you going to do Sylvanas?" I have my Sylvanas t-shirt on, and everyone's all "When are you going to write her story?" (laughs) So now I can say we will see a lot of her and we will get inside her head for sure. We're gonna see Anduin -- we'll see a lot of Anduin -- and we're going to see Varian, and we're going to see a lot of Tyrande.
The first chapter is kind of setting the scene for how the laws, how this will unfold. And we won't be using the exact terms, but there is -- the terms we came up with is that there is an accuser, and there is a defender. And each of the factions has to select somebody. Through a very slight clever manipulation, poor Baine is stuck defending Garrosh Hellscream. Because he's the only one that they can trust to really try to do what's right and give him a fair defense. And the prosecution is not Varian, the prosecution is Tyrande.
"War Crimes" is set to be released on June 3, 2014, perhaps a good indicator of when we will see Warlords of Draenor released. The book can be preordered at most online book retailers for around $20 USD.
