If you are one of those who tend to follow the Diablo game beyond the dungeon crawling gameplay on your computer or console, and by that I mean reading up additional canon and books on it, then you would be pleased to hear that there is an upcoming novel in the Diablo series which shall be known as Storm of Light. Storm of Light is written by Nate Kenyon, who also happens to be the author of The Order, and it will act as a bridge between the events of Diablo III and the story that is set to unfold in Reaper of Souls, the first expansion of the series.
This will be an all new novel that boast Jacob and Shanar from the Sword of Justice comic series, and if you are interested for an alternative reading material, then you can place a pre-order for it over at Simon and Schuster. In a nutshell, Storm of Light has the following synopsis.
The High Heavens are healing after the fall of the Prime Evil. The Angiris Council has recovered the Black Soulstone and now stands vigil over the cursed artifact deep within the glimmering Silver City. Amid these momentous events, Tyrael struggles with his position as the new Aspect of Wisdom, feeling out of place as a mortal among his angelic brethren and doubting his ability to fully embody his role. As he searches within himself and the Heavens for reassurance, he senses the Black Soulstone’s grim influence on his home. Where harmony of light and sound once reigned, a mounting discord is threatening to shroud the realm in darkness. Imperius and the other archangels vehemently oppose moving or destroying the crystal, leading Tyrael to put Heaven’s fate in the hands of humankind….
Does it sound like a page turner to you?
