Gorgeous Epic Edition
on 24 December 2011
Got my copy today. TODAY, 24th of December:) It simply could have not been better timing!
It will be a nice addition to my Diablo library.
I have played Diablo since "the beginning" and although I am over 30. right now I am still great fan of this series and can play it all over again. I believe this is the best game EVER created and the story behind is absolutely epic and brilliant. If you are the true fan of the Sanctuary this book is a MUST.
I am looking forward to get my copy of the Diablo 3 game and hope it will be as good as the first Diablo release!
Merry Christmas Everyone!
PS. I have read the book tonight and enjoyed every single minute of nearly 4 hours nonstop reading!
As the true Diablo fan I have found one single flaw in the story though... To my surprise the Dark Wanderer had been given a name and origin (Aidan, son of Leoric). It does not match the original Diablo tale and it also had not been mentioned by the Author of this book (Cain the Elder) in his Journal. According to the storyline in the game the Dark Wanderer was the very player himself (in the game every character had his own ending story). Nevertheless, the story might be regarded as still fine if we recall that the Dark Wanderer of Diablo II was a MALE...
This single inconsequence does not have impact on my rating though - without this book (and of course other Diablo related titles) Diablo series would have remained only a game but after reading the Book of Cain it is MUCH, MUCH MORE...
