World of Warcraft: War Crimes by Christie Golden is out today in mass market paperback.

Now in mass-market paperback—the national bestseller and direct tie-in to the new game expansion pack Warlords of Draenor—a thrilling novel set in the universe of the record-breaking, internationally bestselling video game World of Warcraft!

The brutal siege of Orgrimmar is over. Alliance and Horde forces have stripped Garrosh Hellscream, one of the most reviled figures on Azeroth, of his title as warchief. His thirst for conquest devastated cities, nearly tore the Horde apart, and destroyed countless lives.

Now, on the legendary continent of Pandaria, he will stand trial for his transgressions. Renowned leaders from across the world have gathered to witness this historic event. As the trial unfolds, agents of the bronze dragonflight present shocking visions of Garrosh’s atrocities. For many of those in attendance, these glimpses into history force them to relive painful memories and even question their own innocence or guilt. For others, the chilling details stoke the flames of their hatred.

Unbeknownst to anyone, shadowy forces are at work on Azeroth, threatening not only the court’s ability to mete out justice…but also the lives of everyone at the trial.

As foolhardy as it might be, I dove into the series with book six, Doomsday. Click here to read our full review.

Christie Golden’s new Star Wars novel Dark Disciple will be coming out in July, but Star Wars isn’t the sci-fi franchise she started out with. Long before it, she wrote over a dozen Star Trek books. To widen my own field of fandom, I picked up The Murdered Sun by Christie Golden. Click here to read our full review.
