With a 16-year run of stories spanning planets, millennia, and alternate timelines, World of Warcraft has one of the most complicated and deep mythologies in all of gaming. It can be hard to parse everything that’s going on just by reading through quests and talking with NPCs, and the latest expansion, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, makes things even more complicated by bringing players to the realm of the dead where they’re interacting with deceased characters from past games.
If you want a better understanding of the setting and the characters that live there you might want to check out some of the tie-in novels. Here’s the list of all of them in order and links to where you can buy them. The first novel was published in 2001 and it and some of the others are out of print and can only be purchases used or as part of compilations. This is a hefty reading list, but it’s full of thrills spanning demonic invasions, cataclysms, and endless wars.
