The most entertaining book so far in the GW book series!
on 30 August 2013
While Ghost of Ascalon was about a dangerous mission to bring peace to the Human and Charr and Edge of Destiny was about the rise and fall of the adventure group Destiny's Edge, Sea of Sorrow was by far the most intersting of the three books!
Not only does this story is the oldest in terms of Guild Wars 2 history (which is worth reading alone) but it is also interesting that the book is also about a rise of an unexpected hero, Cobiah Marriner. I must say that the big event (the big wave) didn't happened happen the way I was expecting to be.
The only downside to the story is the transition phase in the story. Given to the size of the story and how much is involve in the story (Cobiah growing up and building a foundation that is Lion Arch), they had to split the story into four parts. It is quite confusing reading one chapter and then reading onto the next stage in the story and the character suddently changed in term of grown and personality, granted the first part is the worst while the rest of the transition isn't that bad per say (the last one was more appropriate). Now only have you deal with the characters new changes but it did a poor job filling in the blank that happened inbetween the events. Sure they do explain it as a quick summary but it doesn't explain all of it so it does leave you a few questions that you want answers.
Despite of that flaw and aswell the typical story cliche, I did enjoyed reading reading it and I will say the final conflict part of the story (also there is a suprised guest apperance in the last part) was far more engagine to read than the last two GW books (yes that is including with Desting's Edge were up against Kralkatorrik )! A must have for GW fans out there!
