Warcraft Kindle ebooks $1.99 today only

Today only, over at Amazon, nine World of Warcraft books are available on Kindle for just $1.99 each. It's part of the Kindle daily deal, so if you're undecided, don't delay too much. It's worth noting that you will need a US-based Kindle account to obtain the books, or indeed for the link to the deal to even work.

The books available are Vol'jin: Shadows of the Horde, Rise of the Horde , War of the Ancients: The Well of Eternity, Lord of the Clans, Day of the Dragon, Thrall: Twilight of the Aspects, War of the Ancients: The Sundering, Wolfheart, and Night of the Dragon. You can learn more and look inside each book by checking out the deal page.

Don't have a Kindle? Don't worry, Kindle apps are also available for Android, iOS, Windows Phone and for PC and Mac computers. The app works almost as well as the Kindle itself, and has the advantage that you don't have to buy a device, and it's completely free. I would suggest that, before you go investing in the books, you just test the Kindle app with one of the many free books available for download. It's never been a problem for me, but better safe than sorry.

It's a great way to get your hands on some very reasonably priced Warcraft lore, but don't wait too long, it's only for today, December 17th.

Blizzard releases excerpt from upcoming Dawn of the Aspects

Blizzard releases excerpt from upcoming Dawn of the Aspects
If you're curious about the upcoming novel Dawn of the Aspects, Blizzard has just released an excerpt on its official site. The book, which will release part 1 on February 19, follows Kalegos on a journey to the past -- specifically, to the days before the Aspects were Aspects, and Galakrond still flew the skies of Northrend. It's a tale about the creation of the Aspects, and the history of dragonkind.

More importantly, while Kalecgos is observing events of the past, he's doing so from the standpoint of the future -- the days after Deathwing's defeat. While the ending of Dragon Soul was definitely interesting, it raised far more questions than it answered. What happens to the dragonflights, not that they've lost their powers? What purpose do they serve in the world, and how can they continue to make a difference in this so-called Age of Mortals?

Richard Knaak is an excellent choice for the novel, especially given his history with writing nearly every prior tale involving the Aspects and their history. The excerpt shown on Blizzard's official site is interesting, and even the small piece that we're shown holds valuable information regarding Galakrond, his history, and how it compares to the history we've been told so far. Suffice it to say, not everything is exactly as it has seemed, and the miniseries may clear up a giant chunk of Azeroth's history that to date has been left unexplained.

Head to the official site to read the excerpt, and don't forget to get your copy of the ebook when it releases on February 19.

Dawn of the Aspects Part 1 to release February 2013

Dawn of the Aspects Part 1 to release February 2013
Part one of World of Warcraft: Dawn of the Aspects will see its release a little later than previous reported at NYCC last year. Simon & Schuster currently has the release date set for February 19, 2013. Unlike previous Warcraft novels, Dawn of the Aspects will be released in parts as an ebook rather than a print novel. Part one will be available for $1.99, with four more parts to follow over the coming year. And for those that can't wait, we've got an exclusive look at the full cover for the upcoming novel after the break.

Penned by Richard Knaak, Dawn of the Aspects explores the relationship between the proto-drakes of Northrend and the Aspects of here and now. Even though Deathwing has been taken care of and the Hour of Twilight has been halted, the question of what comes next for the Dragon Aspects is still unanswered. With their powers expended, how can any of the Aspects, or even dragonkind for that matter, hope to still make a difference in the world?
