Darksiders. The abomination vault

Since this book invents its own plot and is not a retelling of one of the games, there was no need to include so many elements from the source medium. The Abomination Vault takes place way before the events in the actual game itself. Similar Items Related Subjects: Then there’s war who during the story seemed so much like a kid than I’d ever imaging possible. Yeah, I thought Death’s feelings over and taking responsibilty for taking part in the extermination of his people for the greater good was handled in a convincing way, as was his guilt for basically getting War killed.

I didn’t regret it though. Now, it has its moments, and there’s some cool characters but already created by someone else but for the most part I just fought my way through trying to finish so I could move onto something else.

The plot feels in darksidfrs. All it requires is the patience to wait for them. It’s interesting to read a fantasy story that darksides involve humans and is not about animals. Apr 02, Montzalee Wittmann rated it it was amazing Shelves: Reviews User-contributed reviews Add a review and share your thoughts with other readers.


Darksiders focuses on the four horseman of the apocalypse, Death, War, Strife and Fury though the later two only play very minor roles.

The Abomination Vault gives an exciting look at the history and world of the Horsemen, shining a new light on the unbreakable bond between War and Death.

Overall – nice if you liked the games and are not the overly critical reader. Death is a subtle and agile assassin with a history so dark he refuses to share it, even with his fellow Horsemen. And the actual characters we know from the games are not expanded upon. Your request to send this item has been completed. Now give more details. Privacy Policy Terms and Conditions.

The setting, if you’re unfamiliar with the games, is an extended Miltonian universe — demons, angels, Hell, Heaven, and a liberal mash-in of whatever else the designers could think of.

The characters or, at least, some of the characters I already knew before reading this – that’s why I picked it up, afterall – and nothing is done here to alter them. That adds a sense of reliability that i didn’t find during the games. Fuck just get to the point. Although your review has rekindled my interest. As a fan of the games I knew I had to give this a try. To darksjders other readers questions about Darksidersplease sign up.

Darksiders: The Abomination Vault

BUT I ended up really liking it. The book captures the nuances of both protagonists or anti-heroes brilliantly, giving each one of them the depth and complexity required to make you feel like a part of the story. Set in an era that is several ages before the events of the Darksiders games, the novel also explores the core reasons why Death and his brother War, another Horseman of the Apocalypse, have a close bond in the game. Death was my main interest in this, he just never stops with those witty, sarcastic remarks of his, which had me laughing far more than I was probably supposed to but who cares, right?

And the third biggest reason would be the one integral to my insterest in reading this book, which is the lore. The voice was perfect for this book!

I enjoyed the book, and really enjoyed the dialogue. This one particular hang up on a useless word is not the only utter waste of space within. Darksides found myself laughing every time Death interacted with his craven crow Dust and I very much hope this carries over into the game itself.
