Product description

In Blizzard Entertainment's Diablo(R) and Diablo II, the recurring character of Deckard Cain delivered quests, accompanied the brave adventurer, and, as the last of the Horadrim, provided a link to the greater history of the world of Sanctuary. Ever mysterious during these appearances, Cain hinted at a larger story, providing snippets of it in his notebook. Diablo III: Book of Cain is Cain's formal record of this greater tale--a dissertation on the lore of the Diablo universe, told by one who has witnessed and participated in some of the epic events that make up the eternal conflict between the High Heavens and the Burning Hells. Designed as an in-world artifact from the Diablo universe, Diablo III: Book of Cain includes Cain's revealing meditations, as well as dozens of sketches and color artworks depicting the angelic and demonic beings who wage constant war with one another.

This is a great book for anyone that is not familiar with the Diablo game series...
Its a great book that reveals the lore of Diablo universe and it has a way to lure into Diablo 3 it gives a slight idea on what going on in the game.

Ordered mine from here and arrived safe and well within two weeks. (I leave in Greece)

first i thought this was a novel, but it isn't.
it's basically a handbook written by cain to leah.
if you've read the previous books and played the games, this book will give you very little new information, plus lots of artworks which i don't really care about.
this could have easily been bundled with the d3 game in a pdf form, it wasn't for obvious reasons. try before you buy

I saw this book on BD and, being a fan of Diablo i just had to order it.
For the people out there wondering, this isnt quite an art book...not like the one in the upcoming special edition game from Blizzard.
It's a story book that depicts every detail from the Diablo's characters specs. You willl see all the Prime Evils, angels, and back story told here.
BUT...it's also an art book. The whole thing is plainly beautifull. You glaze through the story accompanied with dozens of traditional penciled-look images.
The book itself was designed to look like an old tome, with old colored paper and you-ll notice the sides of each page are really torned, with a used look which is very nice. You will be taken on Cain's perspective of the events on Diablo through letters to his niece, and many records.
This is a must have, especially if you love the game and a very attractive looking book. It is currently one of my favourites and i honestly say i have loads of similar books. Highly recommended.

Review quote

Insight did an outrageous work with this book; it's actually one of the prettiest looking videogame books I've ever opened. From start to finish the book will offer information about the world of Sanctuary, its complete history, biographies from the people that live in it, and the demons that threaten it. To accompany every biography, there is a gorgeous illustration made by Blizzard. Insight's website doesn't do justice to this book; every page looks quite different to what it looks like in the site. It has been a completely different experience from what I was expecting.Insight managed to capture the dark atmosphere of the series in this 147 page book, and will give new players and fans of the series an amazing source for Diablo's story. I definitely recommend this book for every single fan of the Diablo series, you will not regret spending your cash in it, and even if you are not a fan of the series, you should check what this book has to offer. --"Just Push Start"
