  • Darksiders The Abomination Vault by Ari Marmell with Bob Walter Reading is the audio book I just finished and boy, it was AWESOME The voice was perfect for this book I felt I was there and in the battles, or in hell or heaven or where ever the trek lead A fantastic story, a stand alone, of one of The Horsemen, Death, as he tries to solve a riddle before it sends Heaven, Hell, and everything created into chaos Totally glued to my tablet the whole time The plot had so many twist, surprises, and su [...]


  • What can I say I m a huge HUGE fan of the games and have been since I first got wind of the first one So when I found out that they were doing a book I knew is get my hands on it eventually.After reading the reviews I was a little hesitant but I know that I like books even when others don t And I have to say that I did enjoy reading this one I really loved the interactions between the Horsemen Yes, you an see that they are about one another but these are strong personalities and stronger creatur [...]


  • Actual rating 2.5 starsDeath, the Horseman of the Apocalypse, and his crow Dust are awesome Kratos, God of War, BAMF awesome The weapons called Grand Abominations are really inventive in a super disturbing way The writing is competent, a mix of snarky modern dialogue with a melodramatically boastful high fantasy tone that most likely fits well within the Darksiders game Otherwise, as a gamer and a reader, I d rather play this game than read a novelization of it There were several scenes in this [...]


  • Creation is quite impressionable Everyone leaves a trail of their actions And everyone, however wise, however powerful, however immortal, make mistakes All it requires is patience to wait for them And you ll find no one, in all Creation, quite so patient as Death The writing was phenomenal However, at times, the descriptions of places got a little out of control Even though it was written beautifully, it ended up pulling me out of the read, and then irritating me There were than one occasion wh [...]


  • Aside from being terribly TERRIBLY written, it s not bad I like a lot of the insight into the Horsemen s background, especially how much of a bastard Death is But seriously, the writing is BAD The awful over use of horrendously grotesquely terribly disgusting metaphors are the mark of a novice and the action y scenes were so dully written that they couldn t keep the attention of the most saintly of readers.


  • I don t read media tie ins any I read a lot of them when I was tiny say, about twelve , but I can count the number of good books I discovered that way on one hand, I guess, and you can often tell when an author s heart isn t invested in the story and characters Why did I read this one then To be honest, I was simply curious I should have known better, but I wanted to see for myself what a book might do with the rich lore of this franchise In this case, however, the answer is not much.There are [...]


  • This is an interesting case in a book, being heavily tied as it is to both the storyline of a video game already released the original Darksiders as well as a game soon to be released called Darksiders II It is almost impossible for me to judge the book on its own merits due to feeling that without prior knowledge and exposure to the Darksiders world it seem both flat and to lack its own sense of internal cohesion.Judged as additional canon to both Darksiders and Darksiders II, the book is an ex [...]


  • This book is certainly something enjoyable True it s somewhat disturbing at times but, not so much where you feel sick.The Grand Abominations were interesting weapons, the story of how they were made is what I actually found a tad bit disturbing, but then again it just adds to their importance and the power they hold.Death was my main interest in this, he just never stops with those witty, sarcastic remarks of his, which had me laughing far than I was probably supposed to but who cares, right D [...]


  • I really like the story but I hate the writing You can use all the robust words you want to paint the scene, but the way it was done here was like watching Bob Ross tell me why he chose each color to do so Fuck just get to the point I wrote like that in grade school to fill the necessary word count and that s exactly what I felt like the author was doing here.


  • You can find the full review over at The Founding Fields thefoundingfields 2012 11 Shadowhawk reviews the first tie in novel to the popular Darksiders video game series Smart and witty, this is the kind of video game tie in fiction that I absolutely love to read, but find precious little of in the wild The Founding FieldsIn my review of James Swallow s Deus Ex Icarus Effect, I remarked on how common it was for most video game novelisations to so utterly miss the mark, and just be terrible repeti [...]


  • THE MOST IMPORTANT PIECE OF INFORMATION FIRST just in case you find my review boring and don t read the rest Darksiders the Abomination Vault is simply not just a filler like the irritating kinds brilliant series like Naruto n Bleach make us suffer IT S AN ACTUAL HAPPENING AND TELLING OF AN ACTUAL INCIDENT from the pasts of Death and War So if you played the game and you re a fan of the characters and universe its a must read and if you ve not played the game read the book it may intrigue you en [...]


  • Darksiders is a sort of medley of over the top action, fantasy, science fiction, and super heroes based in mythology.There aren t a lot of books written about super heroes specifically because it is difficult to showcase the sort of action they can deliver in literature without coming off a little absurd or ridiculous.This book suffers from this exact problem on multiple levels The author presumes, and perhaps rightly so, that readers will have knowledge of the games and their content Therefore, [...]


  • Apologetic and contradictory introduction, because stupid gamers aren t smart enough to understand Cosmic Horror, right Prologue from Hell, mixed metaphors, confused mythologies, and that s just the opener Audiobook reader at a nightmare s gallop When will video game companies learn


  • This is a tie in novel for the _Darksiders_ videogame series The series was cancelled after two games when the development company cratered But they commissioned this novel first The writing is not the high point of the videogames Neither is the characterization Or the worldbuilding To be blunt, these games are about great visuals and really excellent level and puzzle design I was curious if those qualities could be translated into prose Surprise They can t It s not a very good novel.The setting [...]


  • First I love Darksiders 1 I like Darksiders 2 though it really gets sloppy in the end So I had to pick up the novel I didn t expect much but I was a bit dissapointed I didn t regret it though.Writing exciting action for overpowered horsemen is not easy I guess because everyone knows that Death just has to swing the scythe or two scythes, or the scythe is now a hammer, and now a spear, and now a big scythe again and everybody dies Also every injury can be healed in no time yeah, that s booooring [...]


  • At first it seems like one of those movies made based on video games, where gamer fans watch because it s based on the game, not necessarily because it s something new and ground breaking The writing is REALLY wordy As in, I was getting bored with it not even a chapter in and was going to give it up Guess what stopped me Death.Or the book s version He s SARCASTIC and so is his horse, it s snarky without ever saying anything It s AWESOME See example Again that irritating little laugh Why, as a ge [...]


  • Great book I have to say I became realy obsessed I started with Darksiders 2, then found there are art books, comics, Darksiders 1, and a full book, that it s a whole story and damn, it messed in my life till the moment I ve got everything possible I could about it I ve got a notebook for all Death s great quotes, including from game and the book, wallpapers, posters, necklace, everything.I think the story is very adequate to these days and it says alot, beyond the battles and supernatural thing [...]


  • I hadn t read any licensed fiction since some of the Drangonlance books in the early nineties, so this was a bit of a leap of faith for me In truth, what I found was better than I feared and no worse than I expected The story blazes along at a fair lick, with action sequence after action sequence somewhat revealing of the IP s origins and this kept my interest 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 [...]


  • I recently started playing Darksiders the game which compelled me to buy this Kindle book when I discovered it on The game is quite thrilling and hope the book would be too It met my expectations fantastically and without spoiling my game If you re familiar with the game, then this novel will please you Death, the leader of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, is quite the snarky fellow you don t want to mess around with His lines are the best in the book and makes reading this novel totally wor [...]


  • As with books novels, video games too are notoriously hard to adapt to any other format However, Darksiders The Abomination Vault in my opinion has set the benchmark when it comes to novels based on video games The narrative is clear and crisp, the descriptions are as lavish and outrageous as the subject matter itself and the action sequences do not deviate from how gamers would actually play the game The book captures the nuances of both protagonists or anti heroes brilliantly, giving each one [...]


  • I really didn t think I would like this but I ve been using Overdrive to listen to audiobooks and the list is kinda sparse so I decided to give it a try The narrator s voice was strange, to dramatic and it made it seem even cheaper than the fact that this was a book written about a video game Also there was a LOT of fighting BUT I ended up really liking it I really enjoy the whole politics of Heaven and Hell thing I enjoyed it in God s Demon but this was still a lot of fun, just lighter overall [...]


  • Not a bad story and it adds to the lore of the games, especially the 2nd in a nice way There were a few wording issues that i had while reading but it was not enough to turn me away from completing it Death is by far the most bad arse character in the Darksiders universe He s flawed and he knows it That adds a sense of reliability that i didn t find during the games Then there s war who during the story seemed so much like a kid than I d ever imaging possible When around Death he s so casual and [...]


  • For a novel based on a video game that I have never played, I actually enjoyed this quite a bit There were moments when I could tell that playing the game would have given me a clearer picture of what was going on, but I don t think playing the game was really necessary I consider that a pretty good thing for this kind of book It was dark and full of demons and other creepy things that I enjoy, and yet it also had bad ass angels fighting alongside the Horsemen of the Apocalypse and somehow the a [...]


  • Disclosure At about 80% I started skimming as I was at the point where I just had to move on.This one is hard for me to review Darksiders is one of my all time favorite game franchises, so I picked this one up without question, thinking it d be as cool as the games 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 Now, there may be people who love it [...]


  • 3.5 Stars This was pretty good Darksiders The Abomination Vault takes place way before the events in the actual game itself He probably had a lot creative leeway by not having to adhere to current game lore standards, and instead could depend on some semblance of creativity I don t think it would been anywhere near as well written if he had to write about the actual game play Thank God for that.


  • This is easily actually my favourite book, ever I love the Darksiders universe almost than I love the games And this story is why Death will forever be one of my most beloved characters ever He s perfect He s written so well that I can hear every line as dialogue in the games In terms of plot and world building, this book satisfied me in ways I didn t know I needed And for a book about a violence dominated existence, there s a surprising amount of subtlety and care between the characters Not ju [...]


  • Excelente hist ria que se passa antes dos dois jogos Infelizmente n o vemos muito de F ria e Conflito, mas Morte e Guerra compensam bem a aus ncia dos irm os com personalidades bem distintas e complexas.Os Cavaleiros enfrentam uma amea a ao equil brio da Cria o e descobrimos mais sobre o passado sombrio de Morte, Assassino de Irm os Gostei muito do estilo do autor, com descri es impactantes e cenas de a o muito bem constru das O problema, pra mim, foi o excesso desses dois elementos, que tornou [...]


  • All I have to say is Ari Marmell did Darksiders justice I fell in love with this book as fast as when I fell in love with the series and it s become one of my all time favourite books It probably helped that when I read it I was on a very bad vacation and Death s sarcasm may have been the only thing to keep me going but aside from that it was just an enjoyable read and has made me love these characters and want to read of Marmell s stuff


  • I have to say that I don t know the game, I picked up the book and thought it would be an interesting read It was Normally not my genre but I found it captivating I do think it was lengthier than it needed to be but I am sure that those who play the game will love the book At least I hope so.


  • I read this because i wanted to see of war and get to see read what he d be like around his siblings and while the book is centered around death he does shine through at times But for me Death steals the show as does dust Death and dust had me grinning they are just so fun to read about, the horses even have a great personality which i never even considered in the games much The descriptions of the locations really thrilled me so detailed and disturbing The book helps us understand the charact [...]
