If the announcement of the Mists of Pandaria cinematic trailer at this years Gamescom wasn’t enough to make you think the new expansion is just around the corner, we now have confirmation that the first book to be related to such events will follow Jaina Proudmoore through the events leading up to the destruction of Theramore, thereby setting the stage for the start of Mists of Pandaria.
If you consider the diplomatic relationship Jaina has always held between the two factions, a novel about her involvement – and the character building that can be done as a result of her home in Theramore being destroyed – is going to make for a most impressive read.
The novel is set to be released in “Late August” 2012 and will be available in hardcover, audio book, and eBook. If you want to pre-order your copy today, you can head over to Amazon.com or Barnesandnoble.com.
