Blizzard has posted a few sample pages from the upcoming Book of Tyrael, and added the news that it is now available for pre-order.
Emblazoned with the emblem of the Horadrim and featuring over 140 pages of tantalizing text, Diablo III: Book of Tyrael is a stunning follow-up to Diablo III: Book of Cain, delving even further into the realm of Sanctuary and the individuals who shaped its fate. In this beautifully-illustrated and comprehensive tome, the Archangel of Wisdom 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. It also includes letters from Leah and additional fragments of Cain’s writings, all curated by Tyrael as he weaves together a series of complex and fascinating stories for future generations.
In addition, Diablo III: Book of Tyrael features a fully removable illustration of the Leoric family tree and other influential characters from Old Tristram including Deckard Cain, Prince Albrecht, Archbishop Lazarus, King Leoric, Prince Aidan, Queen Asylla, Leah, and Adria.
In preparation for its release in October, Insight Editions has launched a special landing page for this remarkable companion book. Adventurers keen to journey deeper into the depths of Sanctuary’s lore and experience every last inch of this heavenly artifact can visit Insight Edition’s site for more details about Diablo III: Book of Tyrael.

You’ve got to hand it to Tyrael. After eternity as a floating glowing occasionally-nagging angel thing he crashes to earth in a fireball, suffers amnesia, gets tortured by halfwit Cultists, regains his memory, and then while tagging along and issuing useless advice during the hero’s journey through Alcarnus and the pit formerly known as Mt. Arreat, he somehow finds time to write and illustrate a history book in the exact style and handwriting of the recently-deceased Deckard Cain. Meanwhile most humans alive today can hardly manage a five page book report, and we’ve got Wikipedia to copy from!
