Christie Golden, writer and long-time Blizzard partner, confirmed that she would be writing a prequel to the Warcraft movie at San Diego ComicCon this year. Now, just two months later, the book has made its appearance on Amazon – but only as a pre-order.
Currently known as Warcraft: The Official Prequel Novel, which isn’t quite as snappy a title as Lord of the Clans, the paperback will be released on the 3rd of May next year, for $7.99.
We also have an official blurb, which disappointingly leaves out any mention of the Alliance:
An original tale of survival, conflict and magic that leads directly into the events of the eagerly-anticipated blockbuster movie. In the realm of Azeroth, the strong and fiercely independent Frostwolf Clan are faced with increasingly harsh winters and thinning herds. When Gul’dan, a mysterious outsider, arrives in Frostfire Ridge offering word of new hunting lands, Durotan, the Clan’s chieftain, must make an impossible decision: Abandon the territory, pride and traditions of his people, or lead them into the unknown.
