Gaider, David, Alexander Freed, and Chad Hardin. Dragon Age: The Silent Grove. 2012.

Ten years after the Fifth Blight that wiped out all but two Grey Wardens and nearly destroyed the world, King Alistair Theirin embarks on a quest. Enlisting the help of Isabela Rivaini and Varric Tethras, he sets off to Antiva to break into an archive. Not just any archive – the one kept by the deadly assassins, the Crows! He discovers a cell number in the Crow’s prison, one that holds someone very dear to him… but who? The way points to the Tellari Swamps, where the witch Yavana resides. Why is Alistair so desperate to speak to her, even though he hates Witches of the Wilds? What – or who else – will they find?

I looove Dragon Age. It’s one of my favorite all time games. I adored this graphic novel. I loved the attention to detail in the art, especially the lighting. The graphic novel was rendered as beautifully as the games! My favorite part was that Varric was in it. My best bro!!! I love him ❤

It would be pretty easy to follow if you hadn’t played the games. There is a short little forward that gives you some background information, which is nice. Fantasy readers will love it! =P
