    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).

    4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely read 13 Feb. 2013
    By Lauren
    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!

    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 Ltd

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good Enough! 1 Nov. 2013
    Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
    The best I can say about "The Silent Grove" is also the worst. Its decent. Its a safe comic, that doesn't take any risks and satisfies any "Dragon Age" fan without ever being, or even trying to be anything more than average.
    The art is good enough, shining especially in the details in the armors, Isabela's attire and Varric's Bianca but with no moment of brilliance or any really amazing pages that stick in your mind.
    The story deals with Alistair and Maric and has huge lore potential but things always seem by the numbers, tepid, with no real flair or charm. I found the script surprisingly flat, with Alistair in a perpetual brooding state of mind, without any of his famous humor. Isabela seemed to lack her wit and naughtiness and Varric... well Varric was just there with no real function in the plot and more as fan service than anything else. There are a few funny moments, some lines relating to the games and a few well drawn fights but it all seemed to lack energy and excitement.
    Of course I still loved the comic but that's because i'm a huge "Dragon Age" nut and just seeing Antiva makes giggle like a little girl. But even for fans I thought there was something almost unforgivable about "The Silent Grove" and it was its portrayal of the "Antivan Crows". The most deadly assassins in all of Thedas are used as nothing more than cannon fodder and represented as incompetent fools, lowly henchman who pose little or no threat. This was just a horrible representation of something the games have been hyping as an organization more feared than even a powerful army.
    This is just the start of what promises, and has the potential, to be an epic quest and as a beginning I suppose it set up things rather nicely and made me hyped for the next volume.

    4.0 out of 5 stars This fan-girl loved it! 28 Aug. 2012
    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).

    2.0 out of 5 stars a bit expensive for not much story
    This is good enough, but it's a beginning of a story not a story itself. A bit pricey for that I thought.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Dragon Age through and through
    A must for any Dragon Age fan. The story feels very must like a typical one from the games, and not something thrown together to get more money. Read more
