    "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.

    "Slow start but gets better"

    I found the beginning very hard to get into. I had to re listen to chapters multiple times because I found myself not paying attention. That for me isn't a good sign, but eventually it does pick up and I finished the second half in less than a day, whereas the first 1/4 of the book took me weeks.

    All in all just give it some time the story does become enjoyable and exciting eventually.

    "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.

    Story
    "An intriguingly linked story, littered with cliche"

    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.

    "Enjoyable Dragon Age story"

    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.
