  20. Brothers in Arms [Short Story] (Read here)
  21. Middlewick [Short Story] (Read here)
  22. Turn of a Card [Short Story] (Read here)

It's worth noting that there is also a novel by the name of Demonsbane, but it was actually written before the D2/D3 storylines ended up being finalised. This means there is a huge amount of contradiction with the lore. You can read it as something interesting, but it doesn't really "fit" in the structure above. I would advise reading it after the others, so that you have a clear understanding of the true lore first. It can only be found in the Archives book now, so it's worth purchasing if you would like to read the other stories anyway.

Happy reading!

The SinWar Trilogy is actually pretty good.

Definitly worth a read. And IMO the whole Nephalemstory is way better then in D3.

Missed this completely! I think it was just better explained with how they deal with the Nephalems and their origins. The game gave so much amazing lore on it.
