    Wasen't sure where else to post this but i have been really curious about the books for some time now. I've heard mixed things but i really want more story and something to jump into while we wait for diablo 3.

    Thanks, and sorry if i posted this in the wrong place... really wasn't sure where to ask but here.

    IMO? Yes. They each give you a nice Diablo-ish feel, and explore more parts while connecting to how the classes we know would fit in the world.

    The Sin War Trilogy is just a page turner.

    Amazon, i dont have a kindle but they also have a app thats free for pc you can use to read there books. You need a amazon account, if you have one just log in and download the app then when you buy the book select that you want it for your pc.

    I'm really curious about how much the Diablo stories will be reflected in Diablo III. I got the sense that many elements of the StarCraft books were paid lip service to. Would this also be the case with D3?

    Are the books well written? Are they interesting for people who are moderate Diablo fans?

    With D3, we got Ureh (featured in The Kingdom of Shadow) concept arts, so it's possible we visit these areas.




    In terms of how well written, I'd say they are. Each book is independent on the others, so no real need to have to read them in any particular order. Even moderate Diablo fans are familiar with D1, and the Legacy of Blood has some very familiar characters. ;)
