Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here Ride with the Horsemen of the Apocalypse as they seek to unearth a plot that could plunge all of Creation into chaos! Nov 19, Arjun Iyer rated it it was amazing Shelves: The Abomination Vault features these two characters, adding lore to the world, complexity to both characters and their back-story.
It really begins to feel like such a strange way to escape describing something. We are experiencing technical difficulties.
If something seems impossible, ok it obviously wasn’t. Death, the leader of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, is quite the snarky fellow you don’t want to mess around with. I found myself waiting for the next impossible episode of impossibly impossible impossibilities to impossibly occur.
And everyone, however wise, however powerful, however immortal, make mistakes. Again that irritating little laugh.
That adds a sense of reliability that i didn’t find during the abomintaion. And I have to say that I did enjoy reading this one. Remember me on this computer. 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.
The horsemen don’t seem to have anything to do with the things they represent. View all 4 comments. This book suffers from this exact problem on multiple levels. PoV changes make sense and add to the story by providing fore-shadowing or connecting various plot strands, and characters with very different world views read differently.
The awful over-use of horrendously grotesquely terribly disgusting metaphors are the mark of a novice and the more action-y scenes were so dully written that they couldn’t keep the attention of the most saintly of readers. For this reason I am a huge advocate of tie-in fiction.

Haha I love it! 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.
A Clash of Kings: War might be his younger brother, but he’s powerful too and has abilities Death lacks. There’s also lots of lovingly-described scenery some beautiful, more horrific, just like in the games. His lines are the best in the book and makes reading this novel totally worth it. English View all editions and formats Summary: I find this use of comparison a wise move, especially when pairing the novel with the upcoming Darksiders IIwhere Death will be replacing War from the first Darksiders game as the protagonist.

Recommendations to change my mind? 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.
As the narrative unfolds, we learn that Death, being the oldest of the four Horsemen, is privy to a hell of a lot more knowledge about the Nephilim the race the Horsemen belong to, its last survivors than any other person living.
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, ri This book is certainly something enjoyable. I’m one of those guys that plays video games for the story. I did like it – but only for the fact that I was already vested in the characters; it has done nothing to change my opinions on licensed fiction and it will, in all likelihood, be many years before I venture to read one again.

I also liked War a lot but I’m a War-fangirl. I enjoyed it more in God’s Demon but this was still a lot of fun, just lighter overall. Tie-in fiction has an undeservedly bad reputation with the literary crowd. But seriously, the writing is BAD. A cache of superweapons turns up; Death and War are sent out to deal with it before either the “good guys” or the “bad guys” can make a mess.
Darksiders focuses on the four horseman of the apocalypse, Death, War, Strife darksixers Fury though the later two only play very minor roles.
