A race to the finish

I was excited to read Edge of Destiny. It started out great, but as the events kept coming, the story moved so quickly through them, that I felt like I was in a race without any choice in the matter. Every foe and other encounter was dealt with much too quickly for such...
I was excited to read Edge of Destiny. It started out great, but as the events kept coming, the story moved so quickly through them, that I felt like I was in a race without any choice in the matter. Every foe and other encounter was dealt with much too quickly for such events. I would recommend reading it to get an insider look at the races of Guild Wars 2, and I loved the characters themselves, but the pace was too quick, in my opinion.

    Not neaer as good at Ghosts of Ascalon

    I was very disappointed in so many levels. The fist book set the standard for the series and I expected this one to follow in the great story telling and characters in the Guild Wars universe.

    The book contains a lot of information about what to expect for Guild Wars Two, but "the end result is that it feels very rushed, very contrived, and isn't as entertaining as it could have been."

    My biggest complaint is how the characters do not follow Guild Wars speech or actions. Many heroes talk like they are modern day teenagers. Think Guild Wars meet Twilight.

    For example a Charr Says:

    "Yeah" or "Really flipping great"

    The Norn have some other uncharacteristic talk too, which is a shame since there talk is so grand.

    *Spoiler*
    They also use other cheep moment for effects where a slight 90 pound girl kills 7 monsters using her spiked heel boot to paralyze them after doing a ballet like jump. Where the 300 pound Charr bread for battle, carrying a flaming sword only kills 3.
    ***

    One thing that really bothered me was the omission of an electronic index. They are easy to make and the author decided not to add them, so if you do not keep book marking and lose you place you have to page through the book looking for it. This is very amateurish in the publication.

    Now with all that said, I fell that non-guild wars players and teens would really enjoy the book. In Fact if it did not have the title Guild Wars on it I would have liked it much more. So if you are not a player then please give it a read and I am sure you would enjoy it.

    Overall, I'd recommend reading the book, simply for the lore. The story is good, but do not expect quality. Hopefully the third book is more like Ghosts of Ascalon.
