A DARKSIDERS STORY
After the events of The Abomination Vault, painful revelations drive a wedge between War and Death just as their fledgling bond was starting to deepen.
This story takes place immediately after the ending of The Abomination Vault (the official Darksiders novel by A. Marmell). If you have not read it and don’t want to be exposed to spoilers, best stop reading now. For those who intend to read on, here’s a summary of the book, with an emphasis on the events that figure the most prominently in this story.
Death’s Blessing belongs to the same verse as my previous works. Not Alone, which establishes War and Strife as a couple, happens at the time of Genesis, and Gone Fishing, which establishes Strife as the temporary leader of the Horsemen in Death’s absence, soon after – so about 500 years prior to this. Obviously, I recommend reading these, but it’s not necessary for understanding this story.
