Product Details

Since the dawn of time, the Eternal Conflict has raged between the High Heavens and the Burning Hells. If the Prophecy of the End Days holds true, mankind will soon find itself trapped in the middle of this never-ending war.

Here renowned scholar Deckard Cain has combined excerpts, illustrations, and firsthand knowledge to pen a history of the world of Sanctuary. His writings depict the insidious Prime Evils (Diablo, Mephisto, and Baal), shed light on Tyrael and the other archangels of the Angiris Council, and illuminate humanity's hope and enduring heroism in the face of overwhelming terror. Revealed also are the untold mysteries, from the origins of mortals and the secrets of the nephalem to the gathering darkness of the End of Days. So take heed, dear reader, and bear witness to the truths that lie within.

Deckard Cain, also known as Cain the Elder, is the last living human in the line of Horadric mages (the Horadrim) and the descendant of Jered Cain, who imprisoned Diablo. Cain's journal and experience help shape the lore of Diablo III, providing a detailed account of Sanctuary's history and recent events.

    Diablo III: The Book of Cain is a full account of Sanctuary's (Diablo world) history: Creation, Wars, Espionage, and Forbidden Love... A good read with beautiful art; for non Diablo people and a must have for enthusiasts. Cain explores the culture of heaven and hell along with their lords and ladies. He goes into the creation of Sanctuary, the Nephalem, and the lineage to follow. I like this book because of the flawless art and for the history. Remember: The annals of history whisper of the catastrophe to come.

    As the owner and editor of a Blizzard Entertainment registered fansite, it's my job to post news, previews and to review Blizzard licensed products since 2002 to inform fans.

    Those who haven't experienced the Diablo: The Sin War trilogy, and the Blizzcon panel, this will be all-new to you.

    This is the official Diablo universe lore source book. All the old lore, and the new lore, and the retcons are all merged together to create a single cohesive history of Sanctuary since its genesis up to the destruction of the Worldstone at the end of Diablo II: Lord of Destruction (2002, videogame expansion). There's even a brief mention of Jacob, the main character of the DC Comics Diablo: Sword of Justice 5-issue mini-series.

    You won't see Diablo 3 spoilers, but the information will help you assimilate and understand all the elements spinning around the Diablo III in-game story.
