Jaina Proudmoore is one of the biggest lore figures in World of Warcraft
despite the fact that her character history largely consists of trying to make reasonable compromises and being completely ignored. It's no surprise that she's the star of the newest novel based on World of Warcraft
considering her prominence in the lore and her relationship to the war between the game's factions. Tides of War
is written by Christie Golden and will be released in late August, setting the stage for Mists of Pandaria
later this year.
While Jaina has always tried to broker a peace between the Alliance and the Horde, the novel's plot revolves around Warchief Garrosh Hellscream launching an attack against Jaina's home in Theramore, demonstrating the same legendary thinking that's alienated several of the Horde's allies. Whether or not the erstwhile diplomat will be able to retain any hopes of a peaceful resolution remains to be seen, but with Mists of Pandaria
promising to focus on the conflict between the two factions, it seems likely that players will be looking at silencing the last and loudest voice for peace
