Feb 21, Dean rated it liked it. It shows how Uldyssian goes from being a farmer to being a superpowered human on the run. Oct 27, Issac rated it really liked it. Refresh and try again. In this series there is a lot of political views. I grew up playing this game series with my grandfather so this book was very nostalgic to me. So, the things you read about in The Sin War trilogy took place before all the stuff that happened in the very first Diablo game.
Being accused of the deed without a proper investigation, he starts manifesting strange powers: In the beginning of the book, Uldyssian meets a noblewoman named Lylia. The writing was intriguing.
It’s an ok book. Then, both missionaries are brutally slain, and the evidence points to Uldyssian, who is about to learn he himself has a destiny far beyond anything he ever imagined. That struggle has now spilled over into Sanctuary — the world of men. If you’re looking for a fast-food novel with a silly greek-hero-esque protagonist to laugh at, then this is for you.
This book is that bad. Mendeln is not much of a farmer, but he tries. As a story itself, though, I wouldn’t really call it “good”. His trouble started the day he met Lylia, a mysterious city girl, and found in her a kindred spirit as she too felt animosity towards the sects as she had lost her family to their infighting. Return to Book Page. It didn’t look hopeful as I reached the last few pages.
The story feels like a bad fanfic, where th Dear gods, this books is bad. The fact that the main caratcher was able to be such a regular person who not only grows. I thought the book was amazing, especially because I played the game I was so interested in learning more about the world which I played in.
The beginning of Birthright, taking place in the small, cosy village called Seram, and the events panning out there was my favorite part and it really set a good tone for the rest of the trilogy.
All told, the group in the story did a little more wandering around, got into some nasty fights, fled, and in the end, kinda won, I think. This was also my time reading anything by Knaak, and to be honest, I was not a hug Hirthright is one of my favorite games of all time, and is the reason for me purchasing this book.
However, one person who has no use for either side is Uldyssian, son of Diomedes. There are some parts where story jumps from one point on another, then it goes back to the third. This was also my time reading anything by Knaak, and to be honest, I was not a huge fan of writing.
I have to birthrighht that this was a good first part to the Sin War Saga. Diablo is one of my favorite games of all time, and is the reason for me purchasing this book. Book ratings by Goodreads.
In the end this is good book if you want to start your journey into magic and mystic world demons and angels. The story goes from point A to point B, introduces some characters who are quickly dispatched, our main character develops some nonsensical powers, he’s blamed for murder, then he must run.
The way that the action went down was a little bit too few and far between. The young hero spoiler fights with demons lead by spoiler again.
Rise of the Horde Christie Golden. This is the tale of the Sin War — the conflict that would forever change the destiny of man. So this story starts years before first Diablo game. She is beautiful, dressed more richly than anyone else in Seram, and traveling alone.
But instead a darker lord of the Rings type of book, or so it seems. The events in this book gives you a glimpse of people who will have their names remembered for thousands of Sanctuary years. Open Preview See a Problem?
I voted yes because 1- I thought, against all hope, it might get better and 2- we couldn’t legitimately warn people away from it if we didn’t finish it ourselves. Jul 08, Raphael rated it did not like it. I found the story really interesting since it takes place in a time period not seen in any of the games and long before the first Diablo game, thus there’s a lot of backstory regarding the birth of the nephalem and the angels’ and demons’ roles in the creation of Sanctuary.
This is a trilogy, but there is no way you could pay me to read the rest. I really hope that most of this was Blizzard’s fault and wouldn’t have spent a dime on this book had I known it was going to be this bad. His family was one of those affected by it, and many a missionary from the various religious sects told him that they can cure his family should he join them and believe. He is forced to flee his homeland with his brother and two of his dearest friends.
Uldyssian is the hero, I think, and his friends are trying to help him, we think. It’s a shame that the most important piece of lore outside the games started so bad.
