Doesn't do justice to the characters or the GW world itself
on 1 June 2017
I feel like I want to like this book more than I do, but the more I try to see the positive in it, the more the negatives disappoint me.
I liked the fact that I was in "direct contact" with the great characters I met in the game: Caithe, Eir, Logan, Rytlock, Zojja. It felt like I'm part of this awesome band of adventures and I'm finding out things other players don't know. I fell in love with Zojja and her snarky comments and her weird relationship with Snaff (still can't figure out what exactly was going on there) and I totally enjoyed the banter between Logan and Rytlock. Out of the two I liked Rytlock the most, feels more grounded and maybe has better judgement than Logan. Eir doesn't really change throughout the story (well, to be fair, there's not much change in any of them), Snaff's doing his thing all the time, and Caithe... well, I felt sorry for Caithe and how she desperately tried to keep them all on track all the time.
What I didn't like was the plot, the story itself. It lacks. It lacks so many things and by the end of the book I was a bit disappointed. Didn't experience what I thought I would experience from this group of heroes. I think it could've been written so much better, could've been made much more interesting.
Overall, I don't know if it's necessarily a "must read" for GW fans. If you got nothing on your list at some point, yeah, give it a go, but go in with low expectations.
