Publisher's Summary

After his mother, the beloved Rebel Queen, is betrayed and murdered by her own faithless lords, young Maric becomes the leader of a rebel army attempting to free his nation from the control of a foreign tyrant. His countrymen live in fear; his commanders consider him untested; and his only allies are Loghain, a brash young outlaw who saved his life, and Rowan, the beautiful warrior maiden promised to him since birth.

Surrounded by spies and traitors, Maric must find a way to not only survive but achieve his ultimate destiny: Ferelden’s freedom and the return of his line to the stolen throne.

Great installation to Dragon Age Lore!

If you love Dragon Age and the lore, you will love this book. It gives more context and a background story of Loghain and Maric. I am finding the story rather enjoyable, but during fighting scenes the narrator speaks so fast. I can't process it and have to slow down the time, then speed it up again during normal narration.

Worth your time if you already LOVE Dragon Age

As a novel in general it's kind of entry level novel writing, but it's worth your time if you are interested in what transpired in the Dragon Age universe outside of the game. That's why I decided to listen rather than spend my full attention reading it myself. This one gives you better context of the characters Loghain and Maric. I personally hate both these characters but I love finding out more about the world in general. There are a lot of details that are better explained in writing.

I don't think any of it is necessary information for any DA game, so it's not a must read for DA fans. It's just in-depth context. It helps develop your imagination when getting into a fantasy universe and gets you wondering about little details in the game.

Amazing Story That Provides Context to the Games

I love the story and all of the context it provides to the video games.

While the narrator does voices well I found him to sound a bit dry, kind of like a news caster. Though that suits Loghain's character very well. I just imagined he was telling most of the story.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the book.

If you've played, listen to this.

Loved it with small exceptions. Some of the pronunciation is wrong and the narrator used the wrong accent for orleisians. But otherwise I'm very happy with this audiobook.

Great story, strange narration.

I'm enjoying the story a lot, my only issue is the narrator pronounces things oddly. I was willing to ignore the way he says "Maric", when it should be pronounced like "Mare-ic", but to pronounce "Dalish" as "Dollish"? I mean, did they even do any rehearsals? No one thought to tell him he was saying it all wrong?? Tbh, it kinda ruins the immersion a bit.

Good if you like Dragon Age.

Story is good if you like DA. But rather cliche and overall not a top fantasy novel.

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.

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 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!!!

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.

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.

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.

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!!!

Damn good

Besides the time skips here and there in the story I enjoyed it very much with a good performance and a good story though a bit sad it was worth the listen.
