5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly Surprised, 4 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Dragon Age: Stolen Throne (Paperback)
After completing Dragon Age: Origins on X-Box 360, I was hungry to continue my journey into the world of Thedas, which led to me stumbling upon both this book and Dragon Age: Calling here on Amazon. Given the fact it's based on a computer game I didn't have very high expectations of either book, but given the relatively cheap price of both books, I thought I'd give them a gander anyway.

The Stolen Throne is the first prequel book and tells the story of how the rebel prince Maric, as well as his companions Rowan and Loghain, overthrew the invaders from neighboring Orlais and reclaimed the land for Ferelden. It is a fine basis for a novel and proves exciting from start to finish. The novels main strength, I thought, lay in the relationships between the four main characters, as well as their personal inner demons.

Given the novel is a prequel to the Dragon Age computer game, I suspect it will be readers who have played the game that will most enjoy the story, as it throws a new light on some characters they've met, as well as expanding on their experience in Ferelden. Highly recommended.
