This review is from: Dragon Age: The Masked Empire (Kindle Edition)
great adventure, excellent characters, good pace, this book really gets you going.
It gives a better look into orlais which is good as the next game is set there and this book serves as a good introduction to the culture, the people and of course, the Game. Special mention about the female characters who are just amazing, if anyone is looking for a story with strong female leads this is it, although you come to enjoy all the characters even the "bad guys".
The only thing is, if you don't know anything about the Dragon Age world then this isn't really for you, this is for the fans, and having even a casual knowledge is an asset. Especially since you get that some of the events here are just set up or primer for the upcoming Inquisition.
For fans of the franchise this is the best book in the series, and it was fascinating to get a better look at orlais rather than the biased or outright mocked view we've had so far. Empress Celene in particular is great to know more about and can't wait for more of her schemes in the new game.
