I've just picked up the first of the Sin War books. So far so good - I'm trying to get in the full story before D3 comes out. I never really paid attention to D1/D2's story line in depth, so I might have to re-play them.
So far book #1 is pretty good. I'm following the chronology that I found listed in the link below.
Bets us how much the full extent of the Sin War novels carry onward in Diablo III. But the name "Triune" have appeared in multiple D3 artwork. (e.g. Triune Cultist, Triune Blood/Death Guard, Triune Vessels) The Dark Cultists probably of this returning faction but they now more openly expressing their devotion to Hell. Oh, BTW that demon in the monk trailer a "Morlu Caster". Remember the Morlu?
But umm... the Sin War trilogy by the author, Richard A. Knaak indeed part of Blizzard's Diablo literature franchise. Any novel to see in the wikias or Blizzard Store (WOW, SC, D) are authorized Expanded Universe material by hired authors.
No author have free reign in leaping into a IP free to do whatever they wish to write without permission. They have to abide to the book publishers, Blizzard's policies etc.
Yeah, I enjoyed all of the books when I read through them, which is why I included it as part of the Worldstone Keep Podcast. If any of you want a summary of each of the books, I've basically worked through all but (About to finish the kingdom of shadow), The moon of the spider, and Demon's Bane. My personal favorite was the kingdom of shadow :-D.
I just picked up the first Sin War book last night and I'm about two-thirds of the way through it. It's pretty interesting so far and I'd continue reading but, unfortunately, I have work to finish. I'll chime in later when I get around to reading the rest of it.
