    1. From the beginning to the end, the story is well developed and there's always something happening at all times. The end fits perfectly the whole story. So far, it's been the best book of Diablo


    2. Necromancer is best, great to have a book with him as a main character. Humbart us some nice comic relief, never gets annoying. And Gorst is pretty badass.


    3. In this entry of the Diablo series, a sorcerer and his mercenaries go to Mount Nymyr to witness the rebirth of Ureh. But they come to upon the usual problems that plague these type of stories pore on it’s caratchers. The way that the story was able to lead the reader down such a dark and exciting road was such a cool way to proceed with this one. The action in it was nice and fast paced. I thought that the Zaul Caratcher had to be one of the most interesting caratchers in the book. I mean that [...]


    4. I really enjoyed this book for many reasons: Nostalgia, gritty atmosphere, hints of darkness is holy places, and appropriate bloodshed/gore and death as expected from any Diablo story. You don't have to have played the games to enjoy this novel, although the nostalgia is clearly there. This story tells an excellent tale of a kingdom where not everything is as it seems. Characters work through discovery, clues, and are even driven to the brink of madness to decipher where evil lies in this "Kingd [...]


    5. I don't normally write reviews, so this says something. I found this to be a great fantasy book. I am a big fan of the games so I was bound to be disappointed, but I wasn't. Knaak really captured the spirit of the games and wrote a great story that included not only the darkness of the games but also a love story. It was also much better written than I expected it to be. I definitely recommend it and can't wait to read the other books in the series written by Knaak.


    6. If one has the imagination and the possibility to shiver on ones own fantsy, than this book is one hell of an tale. The boldness and the colorfull world that Knaak depictures can be living when you can read and see between the lines of ones tale writen in this book. Kingdom of Shadows is in my opinion the best of the diablo saga. Alex


    7. When I saw teasers for Diablo 3 and they SHOWED A SCREENCAP OF THE KINGDOM OF SHADOW I was ecstatic! It's too bad they did NOTHING with it! This book was absolutely fantastic the fact that they didn't use any of it's story at all was absolutely the reason Diablo 3 fell flat for me. But remember, that's how good a book this is!


    8. I loved this novel. The Diablo series is my favourite to read, and this novel in particular is my favourite of all, at least so far. I have only played the Diablo game once or twice, so I'm not too familiar with it, however I love the novels, so it's not only for those who are familiar with the game.


    9. This is another excellent book by Knaak. If anyone has captured the essence of Sanctuary, it's him. The smooth flowing story and depth of the characters makes the story rich with pitfalls and tension. Not only was I unable to put the book down, I installed Diablo 2 back into my computer and started playing it again for several years. Amazing story with an even more amazing finish.


    10. This book was a decent read. Not something I really plan on picking up to read again but was worth it for the first read through. Not sure how I would feel recommending it unless someone likes the book series and hasn't read it yet. It was also good to help pass time in classes when I had nothing else to do for the remainder of time.



    11. Interesting story, didn't like the writing style. Author was more "let me tell you everything" rather than "let me show you".





    12. Kingdom of Shadow has its plot holes, but it's a rather entertaining tale with a few fascinating characters. Another fun romp with necromancers (Knaak seems to love them) in the world of Diablo.


    13. Příběhově velmi povedená kniha, jen škoda toho překladu. A velké plus za postavu nekromancera. Ty já můžu.


    14. It's good for a read once or twice, but again, only for those familiar with the game. However it does introduce a character who is featured once more in the novel "Spider Moon".
