Stephen Hoye!?!?!

what In the world did you guys do with Stephen hoye?? that man was your ace in the hole for the dragon age series and you bring in a droll nasally sounding Gildart??

Mr. Hoye captured my heart and left me hanging on to every word in the stolen throne and the calling.

I don't know what's going on audible with your performers in these books but the quality of readers is severely lacking. luckily for you guys this is a book I've been wanting to listen to for ages so I'm going to fight through the hell that Mr. Jackson puts everyone through in his books during his destruction of exciting literature.

now that I've listened to it I'll say that the story was great. still narration left much to be desired.

Great story brought down by the narrator

I really enjoyed the previous narrator of the first two books. Sad he didn't return for this one.

Please Read before you Play Inquisition

This is a incredible book that shine so much light on the Mage Rebellion & the characters involved. After reading this I can now safety say that I have a new found fondness for several characters found both within Dragon Age: Inquisition & Origins. Please do yourself a favor & read this book.

Great back story for Cole!

Having played through the game several times I feel very close to these characters so it was great to get a back story for Cole!

I am a Lore Junkie Now

Dragon Age games are my favorite of all time. Now, I am an addict of the lore. So well written and performed. This was recommended to me, and now I will continue the series.

My first completed audio book

I have started many audio books, but have always found the experience unsatisfying compared to actually reading. Consequently, I had never finished one until now. This book, however, was exceptionally captivating for me. It is very well narrated and the story so engaging that I found myself drawn in profoundly. So much so that it has been the highlight of many of my days since I started listening. I only regret that I may not find another, though I suspect I will try.

Excellent Story about the struggles Mages face

What made the experience of listening to Dragon Age: Asunder the most enjoyable?

The experience is where this story fits in with the rest of the Dragon Age series (game/book). This is the first chance we get to see Orlais and what it has to offer Thedas.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dragon Age: Asunder?

THE most memorable moment is when Rhys has his squabble with the Lord Seeker in the catacombs and finally realizes that Cole's existence is in fact a Spirit. I wanted so bad for the mystery of Cole to be some new type of magic or item and was excited to finally find out his fate in all of this.

What about Gildart Jackson’s performance did you like?

It took a while to get used to Gildart Jacksons voice and tones over Stephen Hoye who voiced the first two books. I still couldn't get over the way Gildart pronounces 'mana'. It just comes off strange to me. Other than that I think Gildart did an excellent job distinguishing key characters and played there roles well. Was certainly delightful to listen to.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The Conclave political battle between the mages was particularly moving. A lot of very difficult decisions were made there and the way it worked it's way out was incredible.

Any additional comments?

Excellent Story. I feel as though they could have elaborated just a little more on the epilogue. it would have been nice to know more about what happens to the Circle after the Conclave.

Love All Things Dragon Age

If you love Dragon Age (and you should) this is a must! Hear Cole's story. Maker's Breath.
