The growing trend of books being written based on videogame worlds may still be seen as a fringe subject within literature, and therefore little expected in the way of quality of writing. But, a mainstay of the Elder Scrolls series is not only the open to explore game locations, but also of a carefully concieved world, formed with intricate storytelling within the fabric of the games. In the quests you yourself can play through, the extensive conversation of multitude characters, and notably; the many IN game books.
The first book, although with a few issues unpopular with some readers, held my interest enough to buy this sequel, and I'm glad I did. There's a lot crammed into this book and it feels the author has really dived into the game-world this time, bringing us face to face with the terrible and mysterious Daedra, familiar creatures, places, factions, and characters.
There are little mentions of goings on in the world, new characters involved, intrigue and plots quickening as time runs out and everything comes together. -And our 'heroes' adapting, and not nessesarily for the better; but to survive and save what they can....
I dont care if literature snobs might think you cant be inspired or thrilled by a game-based book. This one for me has passed the biggest test. -To qualify as part of the Elder Scrolls series.
The theme involving foods, tastes and gastronomy continues from the previous novel and continues to blow my mind how creative Greg Keyes is in making the "cuisine" feel truly alien and lovecraftingly epicurean.
A select few of the Daedra and their realms are featured. I felt this was handled better in this novel as the focus was on those with a direct investement in the events. In the previous novel The Infernal City, a couple of them felt sort of pedestrian, just there to tick a box.
The 2 highlights of this novel and the previous are:
1. One mentioned by many other fans of Elder Scrolls - we are privy to delicious lore regarding the Argonians and the Hist.
2. The development of the characters Annaig and Mere-Glim.
This book is really good, the way it's written flows and portrays how the characters feel really well. My only qualm is it seemed to wrap up the story pretty quickly and the climatic part got a bit abstract and hard to understand by the end (but that could just be me).
But definitely a must-buy if you're craving more Elders Scrolls lore or just love fantasy books. And obviously if you have the first book.
Do the world a favour and write more elder scrolls novels! I could go into a detailed review of these brilliant books but instead I will make a suggestion...
Elder scrolls online has recently been released... a novel on the Alliance War would blow minds Greg. Do it!!! and if you do... Daggerfall Convenant all the way :)
