Publisher's Summary

An all-new novel in the groundbreaking video game series Diablo—“the Harry Potter of computer games” (The New York Times).

For more than ten years, Diablo has been one of PC gaming’s iconic and blockbuster franchises, with millions of players experiencing to this day all the adventure and terror in the world of Sanctuary. Now, to tie-in with the long-awaited release of Blizzard Entertainment’s all-new game, Diablo III, the original novel Deckard Cain will bridge the untold story of one of Diablo’s most popular characters.

Now a much older man, Deckard Cain is on a mission to find the remnants of a rumored Horadric cell, and must call upon all of his knowledge and wit to teach and inspire those around him even as they face danger and death at every turn. Can he lead the return of a ragtag group of Horadrim and their ideals to Sanctuary...or will they die out with Cain himself?

    "Very enjoyable experience"

    The performance of the narrator, along with the music, is really immersing. The story is full of dark mystery, danger and gore, as is characteristic to the Diablo universe.
    I've been a Diablo fan for many years now, and I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the lore of the series. However, you can still find the book enjoyable even if you never played Diablo.

    Story
    "Diablo III the Order Fills in the Blanks"

    First off the book filled in a lot of the blanks that came up as I was playing Diablo III. How had Cain got to where he was in the game. What was the story about Leah and her secretive powers. Where there other characters in the earlier years. Who was the Dark Wanderer.

    Overall the book flowed well and kept the suspense up from chapter to chapter. One thing though you have to have a basic understanding of the Diablo games to really appreciate the information being presented. As indicated I gave the book an overall 4 star rating. Well deserved.

    "If you like the games, you will like the audiobook"

    The story happens between the second and third games. It has tons of lore and references to the games. Music adds nostalgia. Good performance from the actor and the story is on par with the games.

    "Good supplemental storyline"

    Interested in a great story involved in the Diablo universe? This story definitely good the bill.

    The performance was more than adequate. He was able to narrate the occasionally confusing moments of dialogue, due to your inference on who is talking with the conversation, and distinctly articulate who is speaking by altering his voice. He spoke with different intonation, pronunciation, accent, and power of his voice.

    The story is also an excellent dive into the psyche and backstory to Deckard Cain. It bounces around a little bit between dream sequences, but it is never that difficult to follow if you know the lore entrenched in the Diablo universe. Also the story covers more in-depth the rise of the Horadrim, Belial's rise, and Leah's relationship to Cain and their introduction.

    Extremely descriptive, sometimes made me a bit queasy, and has wonderfully detailed scenes.

    "Weak compared to Knaak titles"

    I found myself falling asleep often. Normally Scott brick is a good narrator but maybe it was the story, but man it never seemed to pick up. The whole time Scott seemed to just use one voice - somebody about ready to cry or fall asleep. As far as Diablo tales go, this is the worst book in the franchise as far as I'm concerned. Listening to a couple of the others using computer narration and they're far more captivating. Why aren't the others audiobooks? Sign.
