Hardcore Diablo Lore fanatics (such as myself) need no encouragement to pick up the latest canon Diablo story book.

Even if that were not the case, I was so impressed with the author, Mr. Kenyon and his work on 'The Book of Cain' that I was more than prepared to pick up 'Storm of Light'.
The insight and all around information given on Cain's youth, his past, his regrets, inner thoughts... was phenomonal, as was Mr. Kenyon's prose and manner in telling the story.
The author once again does not disappoint in 'Storm of Light'.

For those on the fence, I highly recommend reading the previous stories within Diablo lore prior to reading this book, such as The Sin War Trilogy, Moon of the Spider, Sword of Justice (as well as the other comic book installments associated with the series) and The Black Road.

The reading material up above is not absolutely necessary in understanding the events of this story, however one of the major positives of 'Storm of Light' is its mentioning and inclusion of characters and referencing from the other books! I thought that was pretty awesome and came as quite the surprise. (Especially in regards to the 'The Black Road')

As other reviewers have commented, the story does struggle slightly during the middle.
I found the large ensemble cast of characters a double-edged sword (Pun intended) as I was impressed
with the inclusion of so many characters, yet it takes away from revealing too much of any single character or additional insights like 'The Book of Cain' did in regards to Deckard Cain.

Now if only we could see said characters within the actual game, even if just a small cameo.
Anyhow, happy reading everyone :D

One of the best diablo books to date. These books fill in the gaps between games very well. This is my favorite series.

Another great chapter in the Diablo universe. This basically being a build up to the D3 expansion, it gives a much needed "lore boost" to those finding the game lacking.

However, it's an excellent addition to any fantasy lover's library regardless of being a fan of the game or even the Diablo fiction. Nate Kenyon is quickly becoming one of my new favorite fiction authors.

Anyone who actually stays awhile to listen ought to enjoy this book immensely. Just wish that it was a couple hundred pages longer so we could get to know the characters even better. They never feel fleshed out enough for my taste in the games.

It is a very good book, don't get me wrong, but it seems like it took forever to read it. I enjoyed the lore it drew upon, and the returning characters. Really sets the stage for D3 reaper. I look forward to the next one.

A great Diablo book and entertaining. I like reading about the lore of the Diablo universe. Obviously don't expect the depth of Moby Dick...
