Book Description

The High Heavens are healing after the fall of the Prime Evil. The Angiris Council has recovered the Black Soulstone and now stands vigil over the cursed artifact deep within the glimmering Silver City.

Amid these momentous events, Tyrael struggles with his position as the new Aspect of Wisdom, feeling out of place as a mortal among his angelic brethren and doubting his ability to fully embody his role. As he searches within himself and the Heavens for reassurance, he senses the Black Soulstone's grim influence on his home. Where harmony of light and sound once reigned, a mounting discord is threatening to shroud the realm in darkness. Imperius and the other archangels vehemently oppose moving or destroying the crystal, leading Tyrael to put Heaven’s fate in the hands of humankind...

Drawing powerful humans to his side from the far ends of Sanctuary, Tyrael reforges the ancient Horadrim and charges the order with an impossible task: to steal the Soulstone from the heart of Heaven. Among the champions entrustedwith this burden are Jacob of Staalbreak, former avatar of Justice and guardian of the angelic blade El'druin; Shanar, a wizard with phenomenal powers; Mikulov, a lithe and reverent monk; Gynvir, a fearless and battle-hardened barbarian; and Zayl, a mysterious necromancer. With time and the forces of both good and evil against them, can these heroes unite as one and complete their perilous mission before Heaven falls to ruin?

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful addition to Diablo Universe Lore March 25, 2014
By AuronX
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great bridge book March 24, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a nice book. Characters are fairly well developed and it contains a good amount of diablo-esq action actually. The story is a bit slow in the middle, but is overall good and more than adequately fills the story gap between D3 and ROS. Well worth it for anyone really into the story elements of the diablo franchise.
