As a fan of Dragon Age: Origins I loved this book too. I thought it was a great piece of lore from the Dragon Age universe, but the thing I liked best about it was the fact that a reader wouldn't have to know much, if anything, about Dragon Age in order to enjoy the book.

Pros:
- Good Writing.
- Mostly Original Plot (a rarity in fantasy novels).
- Interesting Characters.

Cons:
- Poor Copy Editing on the Nook Version.

The "Most helpful" reviews appear to be for the other two books in this series. They were both written years before Asunder was released.

I have not read Asunder as yet, just wanted to give a heads up about the "Most Helpful" reviews. I would hate to see someone buy or not buy based on erroneous information.

Myself, I intend to buy and read this as soon as I finish the Game of Thrones series.

    DragonAge: The Calling

    DragonAge: The Calling (by David Gaider) is a tie-in novel to a mature themed dark fantasy RPG video game created by BioWare. This novel is also a sequel to DragonAge: The Stolen Throne by David Gaider. This novel provides history and enriches back-story for the actual video game, and makes it much better because of it. The story features several races typically found in most fantasy books, such as: Humans, Elves, Dwarves, and evil orcs called darkspawn.

    "The Calling" is a reference to heroes/heroines called Gray Wardens who go on one last honor mission when they become "tainted" to kill as many darkspawn as they can before being killed themselves. Without spoiling the plot of the story, I will not mention anything more about this.

    The novel itself has far too many adjective and adverbs ending in "ly" that can become distracting, especially when they are clustered together in a paragraph. Overall, this novel is much better than its predecessor The Stolen Throne and is worth reading if you like dark fantasy, and/or if you plan to play the video game. Final score: 3/5. Good read.

    Good not great

    I love the Dragon Age series amd while I loved the return of some of my favorite characters, this book lacked the epic feel of Gaider's first two Dragon Age book. Still a must read for any Dragon Age fan

    Well done indeed!

    Sets up the story of Dragon Age Origins nicely, highly recommended to any looking to become more immersed in the Dragon Age mythos.
