."..phenomenal in visual appearance... Almost every page in the book contains at least one piece of artwork and a piece of dedicated scripture, all of which is printed perfectly on the highest quality of paper."--"Inside the Box Reviews "
"While this insight into the backstory of Diablo III is very welcome, at least half the draw of the "Book of Cain" was in its gorgeous illustrations, the sort of images you only find in concept artwork, except more fully fleshed out and featuring a greater degree of detail. "The Book of Tyrael" continues this tradition, and is described as featuring 'stunning original art throughout.'"--"The Escapist"

About the Author
One of the most exciting and visceral action role-playing games in recent memory, Diablo® has become a worldwide gaming phenomenon. Diablo III: Book of Tyrael takes fans even further into the universe with a detailed and beautifully crafted artifact that focuses on the renowned champion Tyrael. As a former archangel of the High Heavens, he ranks among the most important and influential characters in the Diablo franchise. Here, in this illustrated and comprehensive tome, Tyrael reveals never-before-known secrets about the history of the world, the dark threats that yet face mankind, and his decision to join the ranks of humanity as a mortal. In Tyrael's own words, "Forevermore we shall stand together, angels and men, in the light of this glorious new dawn."

While Diablo 3 the game and the quality of its continuing progress is up for much fierce debate, one thing that remains constant is the superb lore the series has - And the way Blizzard likes to present it. (Bar the actual game, weirdly)
As with The Book Of Cain we have a gorgeous embossed hardcover tome, this time with gold-edged paper. Then the smell hits! Wonderful in itself. *Cough* Anyway...
The content of the book is made as Tyrael's bequeathment of knowledge to the Horadrim, with notes and sketches from other characters bundled in.
While I have not read the whole thing yet, it covers a lot of bases. There are fresh perspectives on the story arc, along with new tidbits of information about characters and events new and old, familiar and alien. Like The Book Of Cain, I found myself lost in it immediately after it was delivered - It's very compelling lore as it is, but to have it presented in such a beautiful fashion is an absolute joy that I can't get enough of.
The quality is fantastic - I can't stress that enough. The drawings, sketches and other artwork (Even just detailing) is amazing and utterly compelling. What a riveting way to present the finer details of a story.
At the rear of the book is a double sided poster/drawing of The Red Tree Of Khanduras, one side showing known characters and the tree alive, the other all dead or what they became. I don't think I need to mention at this point that the artistic quality is again excellent for this.
In summary, what we have here is another stellar effort from Blizzard in presenting the fantastic lore of Diablo in a compelling, exquisitely detailed and beautiful way. It's a joy to look at, have in your hand and a compelling read.
If you are a fan of Diablo, even if just the lore, then my recommendation is you don't delay any further and get this in your life.
Massive thumbs up from me.
