World of Warcraft: Traveler is an official World of Warcraft children book set in the world of Azeroth with main character named Aramar Thorne, the son of Captain Greydon Thorne a famous explorer.

It is the first of new middle-grade series. The second part, Traveler: The Spiral Path, will be released in February 2018.

This epic action-adventure series features a young cast of Warcraft characters discovering the mysteries and majesty of the world around them. Written by celebrated comic book author and animator Greg Weisman, the first book will include full-page illustrations and sketches created by Blizzard artist Samwise Didier, along with a full-color cover illustration by Blizzard artist Stephane Belin.[1]

Description

It's been years since twelve-year-old Aramar Thorne, a clever boy who is never without his precious sketch book, has seen his father. So when Captain Greydon Thorne comes ashore and asks his son to join him at sea, it feels as if someone has redrawn Aram's entire world. At sea, Aram struggles to get along with the Wavestrider's crew - especially Second Mate Makasa, a tough teenaged girl who has been reluctantly placed in charge of him. Just as Aram starts to get his head above water, a band of vicious pirates attack the Wavestrider, turning his world upside down once again. As Aram and Makasa try to find his way home, they encounter creatures both terrible and wondrous, and Aram will seek to understand Azeroth's denizens as he draws them in his sketchbook, forming unlikely friendships along the way. But the journey is hindered by Greydon's compass, which never points north. If the compass isn't leading Aram and Makasa home--to safety--to what destiny is it leading them?

Notes

  • The story takes place some time after the discovery of Pandaria, as both the continent and the pandaren are mentioned.
  • Unlike Snow Fight: A Warcraft Tale, Traveler is canon.
  • The press release description was later changed. The original description was: Before he knows it, Aram is aboard the Wavestrider with Lakeshire fading to a distant dot on the horizon. But the thrill of adventure quickly fades, as Greydon relentlessly schools Aram on how to handle his cutlass and how to relate with the strange and diverse creatures of Azeroth.[2]
    • Despite the change, the book confirms Aram comes from Lakeshire.
  • This is the first time that female ogres and gnolls directly appeared (although the existence of female ogres was previously alluded).
