Overview

Deckard Cain is the last of the Horadrim, the sole surviving member of a mysterious and legendary order. Assembled by the archangel Tyrael, the Horadrim were charged with the sacred duty of seeking out and vanquishing the three Prime Evils: Diablo (the Lord of Terror), Mephisto (the Lord of Hatred), and Baal (the Lord of Destruction). But that was many years ago. As the decades passed, the Horadrim’s strength diminished, and they fell into obscurity. Now all of their collected history, tactics, and wisdom lie within the aged hands of one man. A man who is growing concerned. Dark whisperings have begun to fill the air, tales of ancient evil stirring, rumblings of a demonic invasion set to tear the land apart.

Amid the mounting dread, Deckard Cain uncovers startling new information that could bring about the salvation—or ruin—of the mortal world: other remnants of the Horadrim still exist. He must unravel where they have been and why they are hiding from one of their own.

As Cain searches for the lost members of his order, he is thrust into an alliance with an unlikely ally: Leah, an eight-year-old girl feared by many to carry a diabolical curse. What is her secret? How is it tied to the prophesied End of Days? And if there are other living Horadrim, will they be able to stand against oblivion? These are the questions Deckard Cain must answer . . .

. . . before it is too late.

    Good read.

    A great prequel to Diablo 3. I'm interested to see what he does with the next book/character development. A pretty quick read for the most part, worth it if you've played the game and would also like a back story.

    I didn't find Diablo 3 to have a very effective plot. I came to

    I didn't find Diablo 3 to have a very effective plot. I came to this book hoping it would fill in some of the glaring plot holes of the game. It did a little but left far more new ones. The characters are as two dimensional and as cartoonish as in the actual game and I found myself not really able to care about the characters especially knowing how it was all going to end. If you really liked the diablo 3 story you might find some interesting moments but this is not the book that will win you over.

    It okay

    I always was a fan of the diablo series ( loved 2 never cared much for 3) but a good prequl to the third would make the story make more sence. If your reading this review take my advice. Read the sample, then if you like it buy it. Then if you want more to the story buy the game then just have fun.

    Diablo 3 the order review

    This book is the best book I ever read its very descriptive and it doesn't jump from character to character like most books have done that I have read. Plus. This story gives a great background of the characters even if they are not in the picture for long it provides a very descriptive background for them. I love this book and I'm going to look for the other diablo books as well. I thought the game was good this book is even better in description wise.

    Minnowpaw and Stonepaw

    Minnowpaw pads into a clearing. A rock juts out in the middle of it surrounded by lavender and thyme. She breathes in the sweet scents of the herbs and leaps onto the rock. Stonepaw watches her from the trees shadows darkening his brown fur.

    Soooooo Boring!

    I was a HUGE fan of all the other Diablo novels that have been released and was looking forward to reading this one as well. It started out very slow paced and unfortunatly never picked up. I am very dissapointed in this book and I stuggled to make it through the entire thing as it was soooo slow and drab.

    Part of the problem I'm sure is because the story focuses on Deckard Cain and it doesn't make him an interesting character at all.
