    Looking for more Warcraft information, but don’t know where to start? Whether you’ve played Warcraft I, II, or III, these books will showcase the people and events that have shaped the Warcraft universe over the last few (in-game) decades:

    • Rise of the Horde by Christie Golden – https://gear.blizzard.com/us/category/books-art/warcraft-rise-of-the-horde-book

      Set before the orcs invade Azeroth for the first time, this story explores what the orc race was like before its clans were forged into a single savage Horde under the influence of the demonic Burning Legion. Part of the novel focuses on the orc Orgrim Doomhammer and his childhood friend, Durotan (who would later become Thrall’s father). Other parts of the story depict the aging shaman Ner’zhul; his ambitious apprentice, Gul’dan; the mighty Grommash Hellscream; the wise draenei leader, Velen; and several other significant characters.

    • The Last Guardian by Jeff Grubb – https://gear.blizzard.com/us/category/books-art/warcraft-last-guardian-book

      This is a good introduction to older human history in Warcraft, with emphasis on the events of the First War (Warcraft I). Medivh, the Guardian of Tirisfal, decides to take on an apprentice: the young mage Khadgar. As time goes on, Khadgar learns that a half-orc named Garona is acting as a secret emissary to the nation of Stormwind. While he and Garona try to reach an understanding, Khadgar realizes that Medivh’s behavior is growing increasingly erratic. Ultimately he and Sir Anduin Lothar, the childhood friend of both Medivh and King Llane Wrynn of Stormwind, reach a terrible realization: Medivh, an incredibly powerful wizard, is under the control of Sargeras, Destroyer of Worlds, creator of the demonic Burning Legion. This novel is also in print as part of the Warcraft Archive.
