    Reading order

    I am sorry, if there is a better place to post this question.

    I've gotten the Diablo novels to read more lore from the Diablo universe, but I am confused towards the order to read them.

    1. The Sin War: Birthright
    2. The Sin War: Scales of the Serpent
    3. The Sin War: The Veiled Prophet
    4. Demonsbane
    5. The Black Road / Diablo I
    6. Legacy of Blood / Diablo II
    7. The Kingdom of Shadow / Diablo II
    8. Moon of the Spider

    Is the chronological order in the wiki, but in "Diablo Archive" "Demons bane" is the last novel instead of before "The black road", "Legacy of blood" and "The kingdom of the shadow", so suggesting this reading order instead:

    1. The Sin War: Birthright
    2. The Sin War: Scales of the Serpent
    3. The Sin War: The Veiled Prophet
    4. The Black Road / Diablo I
    5. Legacy of Blood / Diablo II
    6. The Kingdom of Shadow / Diablo II
    7. Demonsbane
    8. Moon of the Spider

    Which is right?

    Reading order doesn't matter since they don't go back on what the other books talked about. The trilogy naturally goes in order, but for reading, there isn't a set way to get a sense of chronology.

    Reading order matters.

    For example in a few places, they go back to the events of the Kingdom of Shadow in Moon of the Spider. Aside from this, the trilogy is obvious.

    Chronological Order:
    1. The Sin War: Birthright (Pre The Sin War) (2006)
    2. The Sin War: Scales of the Serpent (Pre The Sin War) (2007)
    3. The Sin War: The Veiled Prophet (Beginning of The Sin War) (2007)
    4. Demonsbane (The Sin War) (2000)
    5. Legacy of Blood (Beginning of D2) (2001)
    6. The Black Road (Mid-D2) (2001)
    7. The Kingdom of Shadow (Late-D2) (2001)
    8. Moon of the Spider (Just after D2:LoD) (2006)
