    "Fantastic Read"

    This is an excellent read even if you have not played the game at all. I was losing sleep because I had to figure out what would happen next. If you enjoy dark fantasy novels this is the one.The narrator was just perfect and the audio quality is fantastic. Thanks audible for a great 13 hours.

    "Never played the game, but a good story."

    I liked this one most of the two books, mostly because the character development in this one is much better, although still a bit simplistic and often times uninteresting. The main character is really quite predictable until events unfold that change him. There is a lot of good action scenes and some interesting turns--albeit the plot is somewhat predictable in some parts--but for the most part was still interesting. Some of the phrases used to describe things are overused a lot and get rather annoying. The narrator was good and did a fine job of putting emphasis on high 'energy' situations and acted the parts very well.

    "A Wonderful Epic Adventure"

    This book is wonderful you are immediately captivated by the story. Stephen Hoye's voice is exactly what I hoped for he paints the picture of this story beautifully. I wasn't able to stop listening. This reminds me of people sitting around the radio before the days of television. Just Fantastic!!!

    "More than just background to a Great Game"

    Big Fan of Bioware games. Was expecting a time waster novel for a long drive I had, that would give some background on the Dragon Age game which I love. To my surprise it exceeded my expectations and then some. Kept me engaged from start to finish. Very good character developement, engaging albeit predictatble plot, and excellent naration. Probably not for anyone who has no interest in the game, but if you have played or are planning to highly recomend using a point for this excellent fast paced listen.

    "A Great Prequel for Dragon Age"

    The novel is essential reading for those who have played Dragon Age and want to know more about origins briefly mentioned in the game especially Loghain.

    Great series!!!

    "The background information is worth a listen!"


    Having played Dragon Age: Origins before listening to the audiobook I was looking for information not contained with the game. The audiobook supplied that information and more. Whilst listening to the audiobook I would get flashes of gameplay which the audiobook referenced especially the trek within the Deep Roads.

    A great book and I'm looking forward to the second audiobook.

    "So Many Feels"
    Where does Dragon Age: The Stolen Throne rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Well since i'm only on my second book (also a dragon age novel) I would have to say number one.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dragon Age: The Stolen Throne?

    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.


    What about Stephen Hoye’s performance did you like?

    #Yes #MoreOfHim Stephen Hoye's performance was beyond awesome. But his performance of Loghain. My gods, he did it justice ten-fold.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Great for those who want to know more about Thedas"

    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.
