Lists with This Book. The Sin War 3Richard A. Jan 27, Adam rated it it was amazing Shelves: I just finished this book last week. Waf reading the first two, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this story. The part that really interested me was the theological aspects that were greatly intertwined within the story, especially the part of the Nephilim Edyrem.
I must say that I did not predict this ending to the story, I sort of suspected it because of the story-line in the video games, but I had no idea it would be like this.
This conclusion is much more profound and far more action pa I just finished this book last week. This conclusion is much more profound and far more vfiled packed than the previous two. There is still a fair degree of intrigue, especially when they’re in Khejan, so Knaak keeps that writing style up pretty consistently. I prophte honestly half expecting him to play up more of the religious end and draw more from historical theology, such as he did with Angels.
He sort of included the hierarchical structure of Heaven with the Angiris council at the end, but I half expected a true form of a Seraph to show up. Ciablo part I most enjoyed in this series was the development of the Necromancer character.
My philosophies identified most with Trag’oul and his teachings, so I really got into that character. The way this tale is written it seems the author also seems to agree the most with that philosophy. I was also surprised to see the author take this stance in a widley read series. He essentially teaches that any extreme of good or evil is a very bad thing and only results in a circular war with no real victor.
Considering how much this veuled, the U. At least I haven’t encountered any, yet. I suppose the demographic of people reading Diablo don’t really pertain to such extremists. But the extremists tend to get into everything these tue and there seems to be an obvious split, which can probably be reconicled dablo balance. Jan 11, Amy rated it it was ok Shelves: Oh thank wae stars, I’m done.
Okay, I really do love the Diablo games, and the other books not in the Sin War series aren’t bad. I like Knaak’s writing in Warcraft, and thd are some parts to this that I enjoyed, but over all, this series was a chore to get through.
I had no empathy with the main characters, the plot was strained in sections, and it ended up feeling more like an episode of Dragonball Z, where the combatants stand around powering up for 3 episodes, punching each other once, then Oh thank the stars, I’m done.
The Veiled Prophet (Diablo: The Sin War, book 3) by Richard A Knaak
I had no empathy with the main characters, the plot was strained in sections, and it ended up feeling more like an episode of Dragonball Z, where the combatants stand around powering up for 3 episodes, punching each other once, then starting the whole powering up routine again. So, yeah, interesting lore that could have been compressed down into one, maybe two, books and made for a tighter read, instead of trying to be “EPIC!!!!!!
Aug 30, Ray Hoffman rated thd it was amazing. Crazy good ending, awesome storyline. The demons look at it as a weapon. One diabpo can use to strike at the Heavenly Hosts.
The Nephalem and Edyrem are just struggling to survive.
The Veiled Prophet
Which side will prevail? I like how Knaak throws in a little backstory whenever he introduces a core character for the 1st time in this book. He does it so well and is unobtrusive. Even if this is prophst first book or only book that the reader picks up, they won’t find themselves wondering “What tje hell is going on?
Sep 24, Kostadin rated it it was amazing. I wish propht could give it 10 stars. No doubt the best of the trilogy! Oct 21, Raphael rated it did not like it. Would give a negative star if that was possible. Feb 10, Daniel Facchini rated it really liked it Recommends it for: It is rather difficult to review the third book of a series without spoilers.
But I will try. Of all Richard A. Knaak ‘s books, this one was the best, in my opinion. Although by the end of veildd you realize that the name of Trilogy seems misplaced. Yet, the real action of the Sin War itself which is the name given to the Eternal Conflict when it spilled over Sanctuary had vdiled come to pass in the ending. And that It is rather difficult to review the third book of a series without spoilers. And that was very entertaining, alas.
The gradual rise of the Nephalem and everything that built up until the end of the saga enabled a very interesting ending to the whole storyline with an actual battle. Everything else are the events that led to such a veilev. So, if you started this trilogy and got bored through Birthright and Scales of the Serpentthe final book may reward your patience.
I still hold hte point that the characters lack human behavior and emotions, beeing all very predictive in their reactions, feelings and thoughts. But overall, my liking for Sanctuary’s lore made up for most of this issues. Jan 04, Filipa rated it liked it. But I still recall the feelings of djablo final. I felt worse writing in the Legacy of Blood, like I was reading a bad inside-game-tale instead of a proper book. In the Sin War trilogy, one can build up images of the angiris, of their sons with the deamons, the re-creation of the nephalem and the impact of that in the world of Sanctuary.
As an ending book, I was excepting what I got: And the decision of the world.
Yet, the characters, specially the main nephalem, were As I was expecting a lot more of the veiled prophet: But in the overall I find it a very nice book ending. It helped building a bridge between the game play and story and the parallel universe of novels. A read-at-your-own-risk type of book. Feb 08, Andrei Silviu rated it liked it. I read the whole series. This fact is not due in the least to the quality of the books but to the fact that I liked to play Diablo II a lot.
The series is quite weak from a literary point of view. It is written in a childish manner. It is beyond me why Knaak chose to write it as for dumb teenagers when it could have been so much more. During the whole series I was hoping to get a bit more info on the basic lore of the Diablo universe.
