This tale was one told as someone looking for the grit of ruling would tell it. The characters are flat and stereotypical, the settings reliant more on the game serious than capable of holding themselves up alone, and the drama forced and artificial.
There is a direct polar opposition from a classically malevolent force. The only bit of variance from this comes very late in the tale.
Nonetheless, it was an enjoying read, and offers plenty of background information on an excellent video game series.
From the word go I hung on every brilliantly conceived word. an incredibly thrilling story. not to mention how I love the video games. an excellent back story to the first game.

I loved this book and found it to be quite good. My only gripe would be once I was fully into the story a lot of story time was covered in a very "telling" way. But it did get good again pretty quickly.
Also, the author loves adverbs and actually made me laugh at one point when there were 3 in quick succession. None of this ruined the story though, really enjoyed it.
The narrator did an excellent job as well.
Can't really bring myself to finish it. Katriel is not a well written character. It's too jarring to continue with her & Maric's relationship. As well as Maric's character.
Well since i'm only on my second book (also a dragon age novel) I would have to say number one.
There were MANY moment that stood out for me. But one that comes to mind now, is when Maric told Rowan that he loved Katrielle. The way Loghain went after her. It was all too much for the heart to handle. It hurt soo good.
#Yes #MoreOfHim Stephen Hoye's performance was beyond awesome. But his performance of Loghain. My gods, he did it justice ten-fold.
There was no physical crying, but I was crying in my heart. No one was truly given what their hearts desired. It was almost like a Greek tragedy.
I beg you people at Audible to get the other Dragon Age books into your library. So that I may buy and listen. Please and thank you.
I am really into the dragon age games, and this story does shed some light on Lohgain's past. One annoying thing, Stephen Hoye does not pronounce some of the names locations and other items the same way they do in the games. Overall I would recommend this story to anyone who likes the games.
This great story is a pre-quel to the dragon age games. Depicting the legendary story of king Maric and how he won fereldens throne back. This is a story that will appeal to a wide range of readers not just fans of the dragon age games.
