    Just received this book today and can't put it down. It was definitely worth the wait since the book had been delayed for a long time. The first two books were great and the momentum carries over to this one. Should be finished with it in the next day or so and I will update my review once complete but so far it's awesome!

    I received this book free from Pocket Books in exchange for an honest review. I did not receive any form of compensation.

    I really love the video game tie in books. I guess its because one of the things that I love about many video games is that there is a great story line involved. If there isn't a great story line, then I get bored playing the game really quick. I guess that is one reason why I get bored with straight forward FPS games. I love games that are more RPG or MMORPG.

    One of the first MMORPG games that I had played was Guild Wars. I loved the rich story lines and full immersion into the culture of the game. The one thing I didn't like was that you reached max level too quick, but that is besides the point. Especially since this is for a review of a book based on the game and not the game itself.

    Sea of Sorrows is based in the time period between Guild Wars 1 & Guild Wars 2. I loved how it helped to catch us up to what caused some of the things we experience in Guild Wars 2. However, I wish that they would have chosen a smaller time frame to cover. I didn't like that they really just skipped around in the book and then would tell about the time they skipped over in flashbacks.

    If you are not familiar with the world of Tyria, then I suggest getting the other books in the Guild Wars series first. They will give you a little more back story. Otherwise, you might get lost early on trying to figure out who is who in the world.

    An Adventure not to be Missed

    This book was awesome and has anything yoy could ever want in a story no matter what your tastes are. This is book is superior to Game of Thrones and goes right next to Dragonlance and The Belgariad.

    Welcome to Ze La Dragon Slayer Guild!

    This roleplay is initially based upon the app "Dragon Slayer", but you do not have to have it to join. It is, however, free on the app sto<3>re.<br><br>The corruption is spreading. Dragons are laying ruin to villages far and wide, and only the Dragon Slayer Guild has been able to defend against the onslaught. Recruited with sweet-looking armor and magic abilities, thou has been chosen to combat the giant flying lizards. Whereas everyone will run away screaming, you will stand strong with a...magic gauntlet, I believe it was called in the game. The ones we use in this are mainly fire and lightning, since I'm only Level 5 in the game, but feel free to use others in the game.<br>Your weapons are strictly fantasy--catapaults are the limit. Swords, bows, daggers, shurikens, those Roman spiky things, and other fantasy weapons. No guns, modern weapons, you get the idea. No powers other than the ones in the game.<br>And NO. Godmodding. No one-kill posts. Got it?<br><br>Language is fine. Fu<3>ck language limits. :D Sex, do it privately. O.e I mean, which roleplay has allowed public sex? Awkwaaaaard.<br><br>Good spelling and grammar are promoted in this roleplay. If you are a dragon, you MUST have an elemental weakness. For those who don't know, a dragon's elemental weakness gives a damage or attack bonus (I forget which) if you use gauntlets with the according element. Usually the weakness is lightning, but deviate if you wish.<br>I would recommend being a human if you're a Dragon Slayer. No dragons can be in the Guild unless I make an exception, but only I can make an exception. No one else. I guess you could be another fantasy creature, if you wish to be so.<br><br><br>Map:<br>Pshhhh. Next result is the Guild's castle. Yeah. A castle. SWICKED. Third result is the dragon caves. If there are any pre-order books, don't include them when you count results. Fourth is the mountain, fifth is a village. The sixth result is for royalty. C'MON, SEXAY PRINCESSES. Result seven-infiniwhatsit is whatever.<br><br>Dress code time. Dat's right. When fighting dragons, use Dragon Slayer armor. Always wear your gauntlets. Otherwise, have civilian clothes on.<br><br>Magic:<br>Your gauntlets are obviously okay. Special attacks, yes, but only once in a while. Twice a fight. And only if you have a pet (in the game, pets enable the use of special attack crystals). Block is okay, but don't use it very much. Five times a fight. Stun spells, once a fight, and only if you've inflicted considerable damage on the dragon. Block potions, health potions, and I forget the other potion, are okay to use, but you can only carry one of each on your person.<br>Mighty attacks, dragons can only use. Breath weapons, only they can use. They can fly, as well, and use their tails.<br>Dodging is okay, but don't use it ridiculously. You can rune weapons to enhance them, but not ridiculously so.<br><br>The Dragon Slayer Code:<br>The blackest dragons fall from the sky, the dragons die as slayers rise. Their hearts we burn, and demise we ask in prayer. When they fall, The Dragon Slayer is there. (I copied it from The Black Lantern's code. Don't sue me for it.)<br><br>Have fun! If I frgot anything, just ask.
