Publisher's Summary

After 200 years of exile, King Maric has allowed the legendary Grey Wardens to finally return to Ferelden. When they come, however, they bring dire news: one of their own has escaped into the Deep Roads and aligned himself with their ancient enemy, the monstrous darkspawn.
The Grey Wardens need Maric's help, and he reluctantly agrees to lead them into the passages he traveled through many years before, chasing after a deadly secret that will threaten to destroy not only the Grey Wardens - but also the kingdom above.

Great background leading into Dragon Age Origins

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it tells yet another great background to Marics rise in power and the struggles he goes through as a King. It also has an excellent background story for the Darkspawn.

What does Stephen Hoye bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The accent. When playing the game, characters speak in a light British accent. So that's what I expected when listening to the book.

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

Yes, The book made be laugh and sigh at some moments. Duncan is hilarious.

Any additional comments?

This book has a lot more story behind it. it takes place in a few weeks/months apposed to a few years for The Stolen Throne. There are very important aspects of the book that relate to understanding some things within the games. The Epilogue was amazing, it was a wonderful yet sad ending to a great story! The legacy lives on.

Essential reading for fans of the game!

The novel is essential reading for those who have played Dragon Age and the expansion packs especially Awakening. The book completes many story elements which are not covered in the game.

Great series!!!
