I am not sure if these books didn't sell well when they were released separately in 2015 and 2016, but Bethesda decided to group them together, throw in a neat cardboard box and sell them as a set. Well, they succeeded in luring me to buy them because I was on the fence all this time since they were released, and I finally decided to get this set when the price dropped.
First of all, this box set is heavy! The empty cardboard itself is not that light, and each of the 3 books feels solid and high quality in your hands. The covers have embossed logos and titles, and the pages use high quality paper which is not thin like in the Skyrim strategy guide.
The content of these 3 books is extracted from hundreds of books found in the game itself, but it's a different feeling when you hold the real book in your hands and enjoy all the concept art and drawing. These drawings are not in the books within the game.
In short, this set is a must for any Elder Scrolls fan who wants to learn more about the lore. The books are written specifically in an organized manner to help you become Elder Scrolls Certified!
Super happy with the box set! All three books are extremely high quality and just filled to the brim with Elder Scrolls lore. Highly recommend it to anyone who loves the series or anyone whose interested in getting into it. I should mention that the first 42 pages of volume 1 are a very tough read and I'm pretty well versed in Elder Scrolls lore. So I highly recommend starting with starting vol 2 then vol 3 and finally tackle vol 1 after so you don't feel way over your head. 5/5.
The artwork is fantastic, lore and storytelling is amazing and the quality of the box, book covers and pages is very good. I am severely impressed with this box set and the price. I had to be patient as I waited every day for a price drop, but it was very worth it.
The shipping was also extremely quick as it only took 2 business days to reach me, although my shipping was the standard free one. It also came in perfect condition. No complaints here.
These are beautiful books. The illustrations and even the font they chose for the writing fits the whole theme of Skyrim. I especially love that these books are in a box set as the box completely protects them and looks great on my bookshelf.
Compendium of the books ones find in the video game. Good stories with a lot of twists. Great to read next to the fireplace! If you played the game, you will find it really interesting. Read the first one so far, and I'm not disapointed.
The item arrived quickly and in great condition. It is exactly as described and definitely worth purchasing for anyone who may be interested in the product. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase.
