Must have for any Diablo fan,
This review is from: Diablo III: Book of Cain (Hardcover)
Before I talk about the book, just to mention the service from Amazon was (as always) excellent. The book arrived a day or two after my order, even though I selected super saver delivery.
The book itself, is a very nice quality, it has a hardback cover and the pages are thick and have a 'worn' effect on the edges, as well as the pages themselves. At the back of the book there is special pouch which contains a map of sanctuary.
The book, looks at the main characters, settings and history of the Diablo universe written from the perspective of Cain. Including the Prime Evils, Minor Evils, Archangels, the creation of the Nephilim and the destruction of the world stone. The book features full page artwork, which is really quite beautiful. Included also are some tantalizing clues as to what we might expect in Diablo 3.
All in all I would say this is essential reading for both old and new fans of the Diablo franchise. It adds a lot of information you would not know from playing the game, such as the story of Anu the dragon and thus makes the game world feel more alive.
