Publisher's Summary

Ride with the Horsemen of the Apocalypse as they seek to unearth a plot that could plunge all of Creation into chaos!

Ages before the events of Darksiders and Darksiders II, two of the feared Horsemen - Death and War - are tasked with stopping a group of renegades from locating the Abomination Vault: a hoard containing weapons of ultimate power and malice, capable of bringing an end to the uneasy truce between Heaven and Hell ... but only by unleashing total destruction.

Created in close collaboration with the Darksiders II teams at Vigil and THQ, Darksiders: 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.

    Story
    "Meet snarky Death and his deadly secrets."

    Darksiders: The Abomination Vault is a gem of a story for all Darksiders fans to read and enjoy. You get a in-depth view of the horseman Death, who is a very snarky, lethal sonavabitch. A dark character with an ever darker past.

    While the story happens long long LONG before the Darksiders game timeline, it lays down some precedences that may explain some of the who/what/why's for the game. The book has an interesting lot of characters from the high heavens to the depths of hell...many of which we are already familiar with such as Azrael, Abaddon, Uriel, and the Crowfather. And we meet new characters such as Panoptos (of which the watchers are based from) and The Keeper of Oblivion, whom I hope we meet again in the future.

    Ari Marmell did a marvelous job fleshing out the characters in the book, especially with Death. I only hope he will write more Darksiders books in the future. His stories are rich enough for me to continue to enjoy the Darksiders universe, regardless if we get another game or not.

    Bob Walter did an excellent job narrating and performing the story. His rendition of Death is just right with its feralness and inflections, similar to the game. Since Death is the lead character of the story, one can forgive the softer voice of War. Once you're lost in the story, it won't matter at all.

    Oh, Death, Death, Death. You snarky feral sonofabitch. You freaking steal this story long and wide. Death is what makes the reading/listening The Abomination Vault so outstanding, regardless if you played the game or not.

    War takes second place, but is still a major character. He gets some marvelous moments of his own in the book that War fans will enjoy. Strife and Fury also make appearance, but their parts are small.

    But Death...dammit...he steals all the scenes. Greedy bastard, LOL.

    If you're a fan of Darksiders, you will enjoy this audio book. Get it.

    If you're a fan of dark fantasy, but have never played the game, you will also enjoy The Abomination Vault. Ari does a great job with his writing that you do not need to have played the game to still enjoy a great story. You will not be disappointed.

    Where does Darksiders: The Abomination Vault rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a pretty great book for anything who's played the games.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    deatlh is my favorite character. He has a depth I'd never expect. As a man in this mid thirties I feel like I can identify with his regrets..


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I couldn't stop listening. Death and war have a complex relationship that keeps our lives the way we want them.


    Any additional comments?

    If you you play the games. Read it.

    "Magnificent"

    As a fan of the games, I found this story as a whole appropriately accurate, explaining some of the in-game abilities in a logical manner. The way it was read was sufficient to keep the pace, without becoming overly jarring. I enjoyed the entire thing.

    "Shatner?"

    Loved the story! Hated the performance. Dude read like William Shatner talks and his character voices were way off from the source material even though I know he could have done better. His meter was halting and stumbling the whole way and it drove me nuts.

    "Love the Setting"

    Despite the Shatner-esque poaching of the narrator, the story and seeing were marvelous.
    I truly wish there were more available in this setting

    "Uber entertaining!"

    This story has great lore and action. I couldn't put it down. If you loved either video game you will love this story which takes place eons before the games.
