5.0 out of 5 stars Great Expansion of the Dragon Age Universe 20 Aug 2012
By Nathan
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The Silent Grove is an interesting tale set two years following the events of Dragon Age II and continues the high quality writing of DA Lead Writer David Gaider. The graphic novel contains a number of tie-ins to the previous games while also extending the story of 3 of the previous companions: Alistair, Isabella and Varric.

One point of note, however, is that the story may not follow the same canon established in some players' games. Certain characters that may have died in a player's game are referenced, as well as actions that some may not have chosen (Although, it has been stated that if the story conflicts with a player's canon, then said story should be considered to take place in an Alternate Universe and have no impact on the player's story).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 25 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was short yes but gave the reader an even deeper insight into the lore surrounding the dragon age world and the events that take place in this wonderful but slightly dark in certain areas the company who designed this book should consider the possibilities of writing even more novels surrounding the characters of this epic saga

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely read 13 Feb 2013
By Lauren
Format:Hardcover
I received a digital copy of this graphic novel from netgalley and whilst I had a few troubles as mentioned in other graphic novels read this way I didn't have so many this time because most of the font was large enough to not be over pixelated. Any how obviously I'm a fan of Dragon Age and even though I didn't complete the game (it's not my fault, I'm a hoarder, it's a disease!) I had played enough to let my inner nerd completely devour this book page by page and end up pretty wowed by it all. The art work is also beautiful and its a lovely touch that it was in colour - a lot these days go for a black and white theme so this was a refreshing change - especially because the colours were so bright and vibrant, even for the darker characters. This graphic novel follows King Alistair on a long and dangerous quest to find the answers of his fathers disappearance, I guess its also to find some inner peace as he's only King because there is no one else left, I loved this story as we got to see a few different settings each one more beautiful than the last, and of course a wonderful dragon that was breath taking. At 82 pages this book is a little on the short side for me BUT it is only part one, I hope to stick around for the sequel because its certainly set up a great adventure to follow with many questions that I want answered too!

4.0 out of 5 stars This fan-girl loved it! 28 Aug 2012
By Laura
Format:Hardcover
In reviewing this graphic novel, I am fully aware that I will be revealing myself as a world-class geek! I am also aware that I'll be alienating a few readers here. However, I feel it's worth coming out of the nerdy closet just so I can be a bit of a video-game fangirl in my excitement over this!

I love the Dragon Age games. I like video games in general, and I have ever since I was a kid. I used to love watching my brother play games like Final Fantasy VII and Metal Gear Solid. I loved the stories and could forgive even the corniest dialogue!

Things have moved on a bit since Lara Croft's boobs were hexagonal and the voice actors of games like Resident Evil were so bad that your ears would bleed. These days, there are some games which are like stepping inside a good book and becoming the main character! The Dragon Age games are like that, and because I love their stories, I'm guilty of having spent far too many hours playing them!

Unfortunately, DA3's release date is still being posted as "To Be Announced". This means that fans like myself figured we were whole way away from being able to immerse ourselves in the world of Thedas again.

But, bless David Gaider's soul, Dragon Age has come to the printed page! I have the prequel novels on My Goodreads Wishlist, but could hardly believe my luck (or my eyes) when I saw this! A graphic novel following Alistair, Varic and Isabela on a whole new journey.

Alistair is the king of a land called Fereldan, and he is a character in Dragon Age: Origins. Isabela is a pirate hussy and Varic is a lovable dwarf and both appear as companions in Dragon Age 2. This GN takes place "almost a decade" after the Fifth Blight (the catastrophe that the first game is based around).

4.0 out of 5 stars For the lovers of fantasy 7 Aug 2012
Format:Hardcover
Dragon Age: The Silent Grove is one of those graphic novels that take the reader on a long but beautiful journey into the not so bright worlds of the creators' imagination.

In this dark tale one can find just about everything, apart from romance, but maybe that's to come in a future volume.

This is the story of King Alistair, an unwilling King, and his quest to discover the whereabouts of his missing father, King Maric. Alistair never wanted to be a king, he wasn't supposed to be one either and he: "never asked for an easy life - fruit every morning, servants cleaning my feet, bedclothes free from crawling things. I certainly wasn't raised to expect it."

Why not? Because his mother was nothing but a servant. As for the rightful heir to the throne, King Cailan, he died a decade ago. But can a reluctant king be a good king? Well, perhaps he can, since for the past few years his homeland, the nation of Fereldin had known an unprecedented period of stability and prosperity. That, however, was not enough to make Alistair happy.

And now, for the first time in years, he may at last have a chance to set things straight, for one and for all, as he receives some information about his father. In order to find out more he has to travel to the northern port city of Antiva. Instead of ordering an army to follow in his footsteps, or take along some faithful soldiers, he decides to hire a ferocious and beautiful woman that goes by the name Isabela, who's a pirate, and her traveling companion, the dwarf Varric Tethras, to accompany him.
