K is for Kenyon and Knaak

This blog is part of the series that I am writing for the  A to Z Blogging Challenge. The goal is to write a blog that matches up to each letter of the alphabet and to post it on the correct day. That last part is the most difficult for me because I have days when my chronic illnesses make me exhausted. That’s why this blog is being posted a little bit late.

I have decided to make all of my blogs for this challenge about Diablo III (and the “universe” it exists in). This gives me the opportunity to finally start writing about my favorite game. K is for Kenyon and Knaak, two authors who created a lot of the lore of Diablo.

The Sin War: Book Three – The Veiled Prophet by Richard A. Knaak

You should read the first two books in The Sin War series before you read The Veiled Prophet. It will make a lot more sense that way. This review might have some “spoilers”. It is almost impossible to write about the third book in a trilogy without giving something away. I did my best to keep the “spoilers” to a minimum, however.

The Sin War is a trilogy of books that takes place within the “universe” of the Diablo games. All three were written by Richard A. Knaak, an author whose writing I always enjoy. According to the Diablo Wiki, everything that happens in The Sin War Trilogy takes place around 3000 years before the darkening of Tristram.

The Sin War: Book Two – Scales of the Serpent by Richard A. Knaak

The Sin War is a trilogy that takes place in the “universe” of the Diablo games. All of the books in this series were written by Richard A. Knaak. According to the Diablo Wiki, everything that happens in The Sin War trilogy takes place around 3000 years before the darkening of Tristram.

The Sin War: Scales of the Serpent is the second book in the trilogy, and it was published in 2007. This means that when the books were first published, fans had to wait for about a year after The Sin War: Birthright came out to see what happened next. We waited, frequently checking the shelves of our local bookstores, hoping to find the next part of the series.

The Sin War: Book One – Birthright by Richard A. Knaak

The Sin War is a trilogy that takes place in the “universe” of the Diablo games. The entire series was written by Richard A. Knaak. According to the Diablo Wiki, the events that happen in The Sin War trilogy take place around 3000 years before the darkening of Tristram.

Those of you who have been playing the games since the original Diablo will recognize the town of Tristram as the setting in which Diablo I and the Hellfire expansion took place. So, the things you read about in The Sin War trilogy took place before all the stuff that happened in the very first Diablo game.
