Torn between what Gaider wants to write, epic fantasy, and what he's good at writing, intercharacter drama, the book suffers an identity crisis.

The drama's good, really good. The fantasy is passable at best. Between the two it balances out to be perfectly average. It simply tries too much with an author that knows what a really good story is, all its constituent parts, but hasn't had the chance to develop all the tools and knowledge on how to bring these things to life. On top of that it's not nearly quick or short enough to excuse the constant and tedious summarizing and fans of the actual series will not come out knowing any more than they did going in with the exception of one single character which hardly excuses the rest.

Final score is an average: Fantasy fans and fans of the series. It's a passable book but don't set your expectations high. View all 3 comments. Jul 06, Shii rated it really liked it Recommends it for: DAO players exclusively. Recommended to Shii by: Your prince is not here! But when he returns to us, we shall hand him his stolen throne! Stolen Throne kicks off from the very beginning giving us a good amount of action. The Rebel Queen Moira has just been set up and murdered, and Prince Maric is on the run for his own life.

This story is fun, action packed, fast paced and little bit romantic when it needs to be. But, of course, as a prequel to the game Dragon Age Origins and settled in the same world, the world building ends up being rather superficial and made mainly as winks to the DAO players. If you want to know more, go play the games, right? Character development follows kind of the same pattern. Even so, the main characters are all so very likeable: In the end, this is a not masterfully executed story but mostly a fairly enjoyable one.

I would exclusively recommend to DA players and especially to the ones who want to know a little more about Loghain. And about that epilogue View all 50 comments. This is going to sound really nerdy, but I do love game lore. I love it a lot.

The Stolen Throne (Dragon Age, #1) by David Gaider

I pick them up for what they bring to the table in terms of the back story and character development. And I do get pleasantly surprised every once in a while.

I just finished reading Dragon Age: The Sto This is going to sound really nerdy, but I do love game lore. If you enjoyed Dragon Age: Origins and would like a little background information on the events that took place before the game, I would definitely recommend this.

Jul 01, Emilia rated it really liked it Shelves: It is very hard to write an objective review about a story that had engrossed you even before you read the novel. To people who love the games it almost functions as a manual - containing all the information necessary to understand the relationship between Loghain and Maric. To others - I believe it is not detailed enough. Here we have a book which functions as an introduction to the world of Ferelden - crowded with Elven It is very hard to write an objective review about a story that had engrossed you even before you read the novel.

Here we have a book which functions as an introduction to the world of Ferelden - crowded with Elven clans the Dalish for example , dwarves the Legion of the Dead with Darkspawn They are all thrown together, their origin vague, unexplained. Therefore I believe that the could could be fascinating only to people who have played the game.

Otherwise it is too much. Gaider did not really try to explain the origin of the races, their relationship and he even managed to throw in a dragon in the end. Why the dragon? What is the Chantry? Why didn't he explain their religion? To me the story of Andraste and the Maker was always a fascinating one. There is simply too much information thrown together in pages - at least for people who have not played the game.

Gaider - elaborate! Another thing that bothered me - where is the editor? Maker's breath! Has he been eaten by the dragons? There are so many mistakes in the book. As to the style of writing - it is free flowing, simple, I had no difficulties following the plot.

The characters are realistic but the relationship amongst them is not. The love story between Loghain and Rowan is quite unmotivated and even though I love Maric, I feel sympathy for Loghain who is quite often treated as his puppet.

All in all, I would recommend this book to people who love the games, they will not be blow away, at least by this first book. For others, first play the game and fall in love with the characters as I did ; May 08, Georg rated it did not like it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

In short, the novel features a handful of cardboard characters who are being pushed through plot number 17a of the fantasy novel cookbook. There are many tedious sword fights, and amazingly little magic.

The story is about Prince Maric, who is heir to the throne of Ferelden. But currently the evil usurper Meghren sits there, reigning as the extended arm of the Orlaisi This is the official prequel tie-in for the upcoming Bioware RPG Dragon Age: But currently the evil usurper Meghren sits there, reigning as the extended arm of the Orlaisian emperor.

We see Maric bumbling along as the leader of the rebellion, supposedly following his coming-of-age and turning into a worthy future king, yet all along you rather wish that his mentor Loghain takes matters into his capable hands.

The evil Orlaisian oppressors show their evilness by being suitably cruel to the people of Ferelden, lots of mindless slaughter and putting severed heads on spikes. Meghren himself shows up only a few times. That's no loss, he is no more than a choleric nut. There is his court mage by the in-your-face name Severan, who we are supposed to fear most, but he also gets little screen time, and his motives, while clearly spelled out, are just not convincing enough to care about.

The only marginally interesting person is Kathriel, initially a spy in the employ of Severan; yet soon we loose the sense of mystery and danger about her and just know that she will have to fall for Maric. It's the law! And so the box for "dramatic change in attitude in tragic side character" can be checked.

Lots of sword fights and clashes of Orlaisian troops and rebels ensue, but it always feels like just another fight to show that these people really do struggle. Also, we never get a sense of place, distance or time. The rebels move all over the map, it's hard to understand why and how this helps to get rid of the invaders.

More cliches are being ticked off on the checklist: The latter will provide the major conflict for the upcoming computer game, as we know from the trailers. The book really is no more than a guided tour through Ferelden with the implied promise that we will be able to see all these wonderful things with our own eyes in color and 3D once the computer game is out.

I had suspected as much, yet had stupidly hoped for more. Here is the thing: And I also expect that I will enjoy the sense of deja-vu when I encounter something in the game that has been mentioned in the book.

Something good has come of it then. However, if you do want to read good fantasy that stands on its own, pick up R. Scott Bakkers Prince of Nothing trilogy. Jun 27, Augusta Li rated it really liked it. First off, I have to say I'm retarded for Dragon Age and I'm sure it had influenced my opinion of this book. I was so happy to get to be in Ferelden again! He's assisted, reluctantly at first, by Loghain, who you'll know well if you played Origins.

Both Maric and Loghain are young men, and in many ways very different from the characters they later become. Together with a small band of rebels, they are waging a seemingly-impossible battle to free their people from the oppression of Orlesian occupation.

Maric flees after his mother, the Rebel Queen, is betrayed and murdered by her supposed allies. At the beginning of the story, Maric is little more than a boy. He lacks battle and leadership experience and has no self-confidence. Loghain, leader of a group of outlaws, is conversely already hardened and much more practical. The friendship between them develops slowly and is often tested to its limits. My favorite part of the book was seeing the growth of the characters as they experienced both victories and tragedies, and seeing their relationship grow from animosity to mutual respect and loyalty.

As a leader, Maric must make some very hard decisions and sometimes sacrifice people. He's a good man that is haunted by some of his choices. Still he retains his charm and optimism. His sense of humor is very reminiscent of Alistair. Much like Origins, The Stolen Throne is full of political intrigue, betrayal, and a lack of understanding between the different nationalities and races that often leads to tragedy.

There is a sense that both Maric and Loghain are sincerely trying to make the decisions they feel are right, though the consequences of their choices often go terribly wrong. Even in its fantasy setting, I found this aspect of the novel to be very realistic. Even the best intentions sometimes go horribly awry. I did have some criticisms of the book. There's a significant portion toward the middle where the rebels fight battle after battle after battle, and it's summarized similar to a history book and gets a little dull.

Also, the author seemed compelled to throw in every Dragon Age character class, location, race, and monster, and the descriptions and explanations of them slowed the action considerably at times. The end is very rushed, and the last, legendary battle isn't even shown. I was very disappointed by that. However, there's plenty of action, romance, intrigue and brilliant character development to make The Stolen Throne an enjoyable read, especially if you love the Dragon Age universe.

I wouldn't hesitate to purchase any future Dragon Age novels by Mr. Jul 10, Cameron Harris rated it it was ok Shelves: What do you get when a video game writer tries his hand at writing a novel? In all honesty, a novel overflowing with horrid plot pacing and unrealistic characterization.

The Stolen Throne intrigued me mostly because it was written by David Gaider. Sadly, Gaider does not understand that writing What do you get when a video game writer tries his hand at writing a novel? Sadly, Gaider does not understand that writing for video games and writing a novel are to entirely different beasts.

The novel follows the generic plotline of a rebel prince and his compatriots, trying to reclaim his rightful place on the throne. To befit such a generic plot premise, Gaider decided to make the prince as generic as possible. Prince Maric has all of the trappings of a storybook prince: Maric leads his army through poorly written battles and obstacles.

Like Maric, the setting of the Stolen Throne suffers from a disease, Tolkien disease to be exact. The symptoms of Tolkien dieses include long bearded dwarves who live in tunnels, pointed ear elf archers, and a gallant prince with a mystical sword. There is even a segment of the novel when Maric, and his compatriots, travel through a tunnel that is a carbon copy of the Mines of Moria. There is one saving grace to The Stolen Throne; it comes in the form of the character Loghain.

If it was not for Loghain being in the book, I would have most likely stopped reading the Stolen Throne, but he held my attention the whole novel with his realistic viewpoint on life. The Stolen Throne, as a fantasy novel, is a complete mess that will haunt book stores and libraries for years to come. Even as a video game novel, it fails to expand on the story of Dragon Age Origins. I end this review as a sorely disappointed fantasy reader and a jilted gamer.

View all 4 comments. Unless you've played and pretty much loved Dragon Age: Origins, the video game this book is a prequel to, then don't read it. The writing is rather subpar, even so far as finding "Qnueen" instead of Queen. I spent much of this book skimming past all the extra descriptives.

There was a lot of telling and not nearly enough showing, which overall kept me on the surface of the story. There was a lot lacking in this book, starting with character and relationship development. I laughed when Unless you've played and pretty much loved Dragon Age: I laughed when the relationship between Katriel and Maric began, it was so sudden and And I scoffed in disbelief when Rowan and Loghain seemed to take it all in such stride, until the very end of the book.

The narrative was never able to keep to one character, switching between paragraphs so as to explain what everyone was feeling instead of showing us through the eyes of one character. Not to say I don't mind several narratives, just make it clear who's in control in each section, and stick with that character.

This is not to say that the concept of the story is not a good one, it was just handled poorly by an author who did not yet have the skills to do it justice. I am frankly surprised that it was published in the state it was, and want to question the editors that was on this project, if indeed there was any editor involved at all. A ghostwriter would have also not gone amiss here.

Overall, I liked this story for it's concept, but would be remiss to recommend it to anyone other than Dragon Age fans. I hope that Gaider can forgive me such harshness, for his work on the Dragon Age games is exemplary. Aug 25, Rinn rated it really liked it Shelves: Muuuuuch better than I thought it would be, having read some of Bioware's Mass Effect books.

A little slow in places but eh, it was nice to get a good background story on some of the characters.

Meeting this determined, decent young man after meeting the older version in-game, I'm all: And seeing as I let Alistair behead him at the end of Dragon Age: Origins , I now feel very He had so much potential! And Maric You ruined all the feels. Oct 19, C. Phipps rated it it was amazing Shelves: It has a direct developer link to Baldur's Gate, which means it's linked to Forgotten Realms, which means it's plugged directly into my childhood. Dragon Age takes itself very seriously despite being game-fiction, which I enjoy a great deal.

As a thirty-three-year-old man who reviews video games as well as books, I need to pretend I'm not still the big kid at heart I am. Anyway, to understand this novel I should lend some context. The Stolen Throne is the first Dragon Age novel, written by series writer David Gaider, and details a lot of the backstory relating to the country of Ferelden.

In Dragon Age: Origins, Ferelden was the setting and developed surprisingly well. This is not a spoiler since anyone who looks at Loghain knows he's going to be the villain almost instantly. The thing is, while he remains your antagonist, the game hints he's more tragically misguided than evil. You even have the option of sparing his life and recruiting him as a party member, allowing him to redeem himself for his crimes. The Stolen Throne is both Loghain and Ferelden's story.

Ironically, Loghain plays less a role than Prince Maric. Maric is the lawful heir of Ferelden's throne and father to series' favorite Alistair who has never sat upon it due to the fact the Orlesians the aforementioned faux-French have ruled over his kingdom for a couple of decades. His mother, the Rebel Queen, is a legend for her resistance to Orlais but Maric is more or less a pathetic disappointment. Then the Rebel Queen dies. Poor Maric ends up in charge and it's up to a clever peasant boy named Loghain to help him become a man.

Katriel is more or less Leliana from Origins with pointy ears so I was automatically inclined to like her best out of the characters in the book. Can they take back Ferelden from the Orlesians? Well, since Ferelden is an independent nation by the time of the games, yes, but how they do it is a winding twisty path. Part of what makes this story so appealing is it works entirely on its own.

If you've never played any of the Dragon Age games, you can still enjoy this story on its own merits. Everything you need to know about the franchise is included in this volume and it has a satisfying narrative arc for everyone. Some characters will live, some will die, and others will have an unhappily ever after. How all this happens is quite entertaining to read. I also like the book's relatively modest stakes. Countless fantasy stories have the fate of the world resting on the shoulders of our heroes.

Here, the fate of a single kingdom is on the line and it's not from monsters but their fellow human beings. The Orlesians are a brutal and repressive ruling class but not cartoonishly so.

Or, if they're incredibly evil then it's because real-life regimes tend to be that way to conquered territories. You can't really outdo history in that regard. I found myself caring about the heroes and their personal lives, too, which I almost never do in fiction.

The fact the romance story arcs aren't preordained to end in the way they traditionally do in these things is a nice change of pace. People get their heart broken, class stands in the way of true love, and sometimes what's broken can't be repaired. Which is, frankly, more true-to-life than most of us would like to admit. The book lives and dies on what I consider to be its authenticity. The world feels like it could have happened on some parallel Earth. Questions of morality, economic exploitation, racism, feelings of inadequacy, and cultural posturing all help ground the piece.

It's really-really good and, in my opinion, not just a good game novel but a good novel period. Non-franchise fans could pick this up as an introduction to the setting. Buy it. May 21, Sorina rated it really liked it Shelves: From a distance it seemed almost small, gliding slowly in the air with the snowcapped mountain range behind it The Chantry had taken it as an omen. First thing first: In fact, it was great. And not just as a book that is based on a video game.

It was a really good fantasy book. It was written like a fantasy book should be written. It wasn't just chopped together for the fans of the video game.

It was developed and it was well thought out. For those who don't know the storyline of the game, the game starts with King Cailan being betrayed on the battlefield by his father's oldest friend, Loghain Mac Tir. Loghain then sets himself on the thrones and the player's job as the protagonist is to bring Loghain down among other extremely important things.

Well, this book tells the story of Cailan's father, Maric, and how he won his throne back with the help of his best friend, Loghain. More than being great because of the plot, the book was great because of the characters. It was great because you understood the characters; their fears, their thoughts, their actions and most importantly you understand their motivations for the things they did in the video game.

Which is what a book based on a video game should all be about. By the end of the novel I completely understood why Loghain would betray his friend's son in the future, why he would claim his throne for himself, and even better, I even started to sympathize with him a bit. Don't get me wrong, I still want to punch him in the eye, but ultimately I also felt for him. Also, Queen Rowan was just a badass but my heart hurt for her at the same time.

In fact, my heart broke for all three of them: Maric, Rowan and Loghain. If you take nothing else from this, at least take away the great characters that were presented in this novel. Mar 08, Iset rated it really liked it Shelves: It is so hard to find good fantasy. So many stories are chock full of stereotypes and so quickly forgotten. Although I like the genre, I tend to approach it with caution because when it's good it's great but when it's bad it runs the gamut from mediocre regurgitation to some of the silliest nonsense you'll ever see.

Thank goodness for David Gaider. The author has excellent story credits behind him, so you would expect him to produce a tale of quality, and for my money he didn't let me down. I wil It is so hard to find good fantasy. I will say that the story felt like it skimmed at times - it covers quite a large period of time, and sometimes Gaider resorts to summarising events in between in a way that just make me flip on my suspension of disbelief switch and mentally fill in the gaps.

Also I can't ignore just Alistair-esque Maric was - naive, bit of a duffer about kingship at first, on the run with limited aid - but, heck, they're family and since I liked Alistair I'm not complaining.

The book's strengths were undoubtedly its characterisations. Whilst I didn't think we got as in depth or detailed a picture as we could have with a longer book, Gaider carefully tailors what page space he has to tell us or infer all we need to know about the characters; and they come across as empathetic.

Yes, even Loghain. The antagonist was slightly underdone and came off prhaps a little too 'villain', but I put that down to space constraints; there were small hints of a bigger exprience going on that explained his backstory more. I wouldn't call it an earth-shattering story, but it's solid stuff, and genuinely enjoyable.

Good addition to the games. May 01, Wendy rated it really liked it Shelves: Origins and in both, my Warden permitted the same fate for Loghain Mac Tir. It was the fate deserving of his crime, but I never could appreciate the reasoning given for that crime as there seemed to be much more to Loghain.

Hence my need to read the books that precede the game. Despite my issues with David Gaider now, I was very pleased with this book. Barely 50 pages in, I already respected Loghain and even liked him, despite his harsh demeanor.

Appreciation for King Maric was to be expected once it was established that he was much like his son, Alistair, in personality. But it was Loghain that I was interested in and the book did not let me down -- though it also means I am heartbroken over Loghain's ultimate fate.

View all 5 comments. Dec 28, Sara rated it it was amazing Shelves: I'm sobbing. I'm not stupid, I knew this book was going to be tragic, because as a prequel to a game I must have played at least half a dozen times, I knew the events that happen in this book, and more.

But still, the intricate details of how Maric, Rowan and Loghain got the stolen throne back is Recommend, but also recommend you play Dragon Age 5 stars I cannot with this book.

Oct 31, Anastasia rated it really liked it Shelves: I remember liking it, but I don't remember it being so tragic. Gaider, damn you, were the games not enough?! But I'm obviously joking, it seemed fitting if a bit or a lot sad.

The book itself is quite gripping, every time I sat down and read a bit it inspired me to get to know the world better, even if I've played the games multiple times by now. I love the characters in here, I especially loved the 4. I love the characters in here, I especially loved their development. And even though I usually don't enjoy angst, I did in this one. I thought it was very nicely done and shown.

And I enjoyed the complicated relationships between our characters, plus there were things I've forgotten, so I was surprised on several occasions.

Because of all this, Maric, Loghain and Rowan change a lot, do all kinds of wrong things, but they also do the right thing ultimately. And I love how, knowing the story from DAO you can just see how things with Loghain view spoiler [ went south. Like, you can see he's a hard man and I assume he didn't like Cailan very much, being in love with Rowan and being apart from her.

You can also see his hatred towards Orlesians. The story might not be the most original one but I can't say the games are more original , but it's a good, solid story. Yes, a lot of tropes we all know.

But we also love them! I think the books should be read by the fans of the games, but I also feel like this book might make you wanna play a game if you haven't? Idk, I'm biased here, I already love the games.

But at least give it a try! Apr 06, Traci rated it really liked it Shelves: This is a media tie in book for the videogame Dragon Age. A prelude to the events of the game. So first thing out of the way. A disclaimer, I used to be a RPG junkie. There was a time when I played more games than I read. Today not as much. But I still make time for Bioware the creators of Dragon Age. Never heard of Dragon Age? No interest? Haven't played a game since Atari?

Ignore my rating. On it's own this is nothing special. The typical lost king fighting for the throne dungeon crawler. Although if you like Dragonlance and Forgotten Realms old school fantasy you might like it. If you have played the game and haven't yet read the book you'll enjoy spending more time within this world.

Meet King Maric who you only hear of in legend while playing. And maybe see another side of the villainous Loghain. It's not perfect by any means. But for what it is I like it. Jun 17, Khaalidah Muhammad-Ali rated it it was ok. This book was useful with regard to learning some of the history and lore of DA, but the writing was atrocious. Like totally ridiculous. All telling and little showing. Out of place phrases.

And convoluted sentence structure. This book could have done with massive editing. Sometimes the characters behaved in completely unrealistic unnatural ways and made childish decisions. I'm conflicted about this book. The I formation was good and thus it served it's purpose for me, but the poor writing zappe This book was useful with regard to learning some of the history and lore of DA, but the writing was atrocious.

The I formation was good and thus it served it's purpose for me, but the poor writing zapped all the juice. Jan 07, Amber rated it really liked it Shelves: I think I'm giving this four stars instead of three because I love Dragon Age. This book is a prequel to the first Dragon Age game and the reason I picked it up.

I feel like my hopes for it were too high, but I enjoyed it as it was a fairly quick for me once I sat down to read it. Mar 31, Nerine Dorman rated it really liked it. At least for the fans, that is. Which is why The Stolen Throne was great. The story is simple. The Fereldan kingdom is ruled by an usurper placed on the throne by the neighbouring Empire of Orlesia, and Maric faces a bitter struggle before he can take his rightful place as ruler and gain vengeance. Helping him are his betrothed, Rowan, and his loyal and best friend Loghain, who stand by him through all his battles.

For those who played through Dragon Age: But… Yes. While I appreciated the content, its delivery could have been better, and this is where I am not afraid to say that a savvy content editor would have been able to poke and prod the author to give a little more.
