It’s safe to say Sylvanas Windrunner is among the most beloved characters in the vast Warcraft universe, so it’s only fitting that she becomes the subject of the latest World of Warcraft tie-in novel. IGN can exclusively debut an excerpt from writer Christie Golden’s World of Warcraft: Sylvanas ahead of its March 29 release date.

Golden has penned a number of World of Warcraft novels in recent years, including 2009’s Arthas: Rise of the Lich King and 2012’s Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War. As with Arthas, Sylvanas aims to provide a full account of the titular character’s life and death and the cursed existence that now defines her. The book will also lend new insight into her relationship with the being known as the Jailer.

This excerpt takes place early in the novel, revealing a young Sylvanas’ first encounter with her infant brother Lirath.

World of Warcraft: Sylvanas will be released in print, e-book and audiobook forms on Tuesday, March 29. The audiobook edition is narrated by Patty Mattson, who voices Sylvanas in the game.

In other Warcraft news, the series is finally headed to mobile devices in 2022. Blizzard confirmed it’s developing several Warcraft mobile titles, one of which may be a Pokemon Go-style AR game. However, it’s unknown how those projects might be affected by the news Microsoft is working to acquire Activision-Blizzard in a $68.7 billion deal.
