Keith R.A. DeCandido: “At the end of Warcraft 3 and Warcraft 3X, humans and orcs were allies on the continent of Kalimdor. But in World of Warcraft, the two sides are enemies again. My task with the novel Cycle of Hatred, to be released in February, was to help explain that change. It takes place during the four-year gap between the two games, and involves the humans on Kalimdor lead by Lady Jaina Proudmoore and the orcs on the same continent lead by Thrall. Of all the characters in the Warcraft universe, I found Jaina and Thrall to be two of the three most compelling characters. Jaina is a powerful female wizard, who is put in a position of leading a small group of humans in a hostile land in the wake of a brutal war against a demon horde. Thrall is an orc raised by humans as a slave, who leads a rebellion of orcs against human bondage, and inspires the orcs to return to their old ways before they were cursed by demons. Both leaders are trying to forge a new future, moving past the old hatreds. Unfortunately, the old hatreds don’t die easily. (If you’re wondering who the third character is, you’ll have to read the book to find out—the character is also in the book, but who it is is a surprise. *big grin*)”
Details to know:
- The book is set 3 years after the Battle of Mount Hyjal
- Admiral Proudmoore died at Northwatch Keep, The Barrens
We got ahold of an excerpt of the book for your visual and mind-boggling-drooling delight. Read below . . .
