4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Background with the Same Great Story, 11 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dragon Age: The Stolen Throne (Kindle Edition)
As a big fan of the Dragon Age games, this book provided nice context to a lot of the events in Origins, especially Loghain's history and how this influences his actions during the Blight. A few of the events were not so much foreshadowed as fore-neon-signed, but when the plot actually got there Gaider still managed to throw in a few surprises. Being a prequel, the ending was a foregone conclusion but the storyline, along with the vague information in DAO, managed to maintain suspense and worry for the characters up until the end.

In terms of writing the action scenes were not brilliant but the characters, which are what Gaider writes for the games, were very well done.

I'm not sure I would describe it as essential as the marketing does, but I would definitely recommend this to any fans of the Dragon Age games and vice versa.
