Publisher's Summary

Empress Celene of Orlais rose to the throne of the most powerful nation in Thedas through wisdom, wit, and ruthless manipulation. Now the empire she has guided into an age of enlightenment is threatened from within by imminent war between the templars and the mages, even as rebellion stirs among the downtrodden elves. To save Orlais, Celene must keep her hold on the throne by any means necessary.

Fighting with the legendary skill of the Orlesian Chevaliers, Grand Duke Gaspard has won countless battles for the empire and the empress. But as the Circle fails and chaos looms, Gaspard begins to doubt that Celene's diplomatic approach to Orlais' problems will keep the empire safe. Perhaps it is time for a new leader, one who lives by the tenets of the Chevalier's Code, to make Orlais strong again.

Briala has been Celene's handmaid since the two of them were children, subtly using her position to help improve the lives of elves across Orlais. She is Celene's confidante, spymaster, and lover, but when politics force the empress to choose between the rights of the elves and the Orlesian throne, Briala must decide where her true loyalties lie.

Excellent back story for Brianna and Celene!

Had I heard this story before playing the Winter Palace DLC I would have made very different choices in the gameplay!

wonderful

Hearing french pronunciation makes this audio book so immersive and relaxing to listen to. The story itself is a favorite of mine and Patrick has done a great job at expanding on Thedasian lore.

Awesome

This book is a really awesome companion to Dragon Age Inquisution. It's a good story on its own and it hypes me up to play the game. I definitely recommend it to anyone who's a fan of the games and especially someone whos a fan of Inquisition.

Wow

For a story I started out caring very little about actually listening to, and was doing just so I could say I listened to the whole series (after I finish the next book), I relatively quickly found myself caring about the characters and the story it was telling. If you liked the other books in the series you won't be the least bit disappointed by this one.

The horse was my favorite character.

The story was pretty decent. Political stories aren’t my thing so it felt like it dragged during those parts. I hated every single character; not that they were poorly written, but they were expertly written as assholes. Oralaision accent is akin to the french accent, so the reader took some of the immersion out of it.

Love the story so much!

It took me a minute to appreciate Gildart’s narration, but he did such a good and creative job for this book, it ended up being one of my favorites out of the whole series. Amazing storyline that has made the events in DA:Inquisition make a lot more sense. Highly recommend you read the series as or before you play the games. 💜

Beneath The Mask hides the story

Sometimes the mask does not hide the deeds of Deceit and which we commit in life or the politics of power
