Dragon Age

Bond and compelled to eliminate those who use magic to hurt others When they betray a powerful patron who intended to kill them once their job was completed they're forced to run and join the Inuisit I know I knowwhat was I thinking A book based on a video game Was I expecting Dostoyevsky No But I saw that Greg Rucka wrote it and he has written some good stories in the past Well working with this blatant money grab which seems to be the muse that drives most modern authorsartists is not an easy task To be fair the video game Dragon Age Inuisition is superlative and it is one I have played Still translating a RPG into a workable novel has some limits That is amply on display here the first part of the story is actually decent It shows us two magekillers who hunt down rogue mages That part and the resultant mission is actually decent Had that been the basis for this tale then it might have been have rated 3 stars But sadly hampered by the plot of the game we then see the Rifts open and demons swarm out This is where the story goes wrong Rucka should have known betterbecause the final part is a mission to secure a portal and close it Ummmokand the ending With the two magekillers saying We helped save the world after they killed some demons Ummmmmmyeah You SURE Well I am not See I AM the Herald of Andastre in the game and since this book is based of the game well ummmm I m the ONLY one who can close the portals Soooooo when these two imbeciles sit there and claim to help save the world I had to do a double take and ask How They killed a demon or four and that s cool but um if they looked up in the sky one of the last panels ummm see that hundreds of meters long glowing green portal in the sky Yeah THAT thingyeah umyou can t close it You re not the Herald of Andastre I am So while it s great that you killed 4 demons perhaps you missed that hole in the sky through which hundreds about to pour through that you didn t closewhich means it is still that hole in the sky spweing demons So no I respectfully dissent from that statement you didn t save the world No than some random idiot who brains a zombie with a spade and then crows triumphantly about how he saved the world while several hundred zombies wander through your town feeding on friends and family CongratsOk story save the ending ok art combine for an ok book It wasn t bad till the ending Shame since this could have been good but heythat s okjust think of the check Mr Rucka will get for this dreckand isn t that the truest test of what passes for good nowadays

Summary Dragon Age

Ion With the breach in the sky tearing the world apart there's to fear than Venatori and an angry former employer Can Tessa Marius and the Inuisition overcome the greatest threat Thedas has ever faced More reviews and no fluff on the blog Dragon Age Mage Killer remains very true to the Dragon Age world In fact it takes place during the entirety of the Inuisition game The illustrations are well done and likenesses are true to the game But the story is rather pointless and seems like a way to introducegive backstory on characters that may be the leads in the next game Nothing much happens and it jumps around everywhereTessa is a friendly rogue and Marius is a deadly serious warriormage killer He was once a Tevinter slave but claims he bears no special ill will to all Tevinter When they are lured to a job they become embroiled in Tevinter politics and eventually become part of the Inuisition After excursions to Inuisition locations with Dorian and the Chargers minus Bull they take assignments from Charter as the Inuisition deals with the hole the skyI appreciated seeing cameos of many characters from the Chargers of course to Leliana and Dorian But it was also great to see Charter in action she is Leliana s main spy and responsible for recruiting Scout Harding Tessa and Charter have a little romance but we don t see any of it it s only hinted at as off jokes to oblivious Marius And Marius himself seems like a mixture of Alistair s obtuseness with Hawke s gritty determinationI wish the stories went somewhere There really isn t much of a story here yet it seems so obvious that one could have been built upon instead of throwing character and game vignettes around willy nilly I like a cameo as much as the next person Hi Dorian but I have already completely forgotten what this graphic novel was about That certainly never happened after playing the Dragon Age gamesSo yes I d say a graphic novel for fans and hope this is a sneak of the characters we will get with the next Dragon Age game Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher

Legendary writer Greg Rucka begins an all new story set in the immersive dark fantasy world of Dragon Age Includes Magekiller comics 1 5Tessa and Marius are mercenary partners united by an unbreakable If you love dark fantasy the dragon age series is where it is at From video games novels and comics it always delivers On a plot level this is really uite good As the name suggests it s about the hunting of mages Marius hunts them down for profit and like Fenris from Dragon Age 2 it s the only thing he s any good at His body has been twisted by dark magic and turned into a mana severing weapon so his line of work comes very easy to him he was built for it He and his partner in crime an obvious love interest from the start get mixed up in the murky events of Dragon Age Inuisition Bloody faced paced and morally grey it s everything you d expect from a Dragon Age story however there are a few weak moments in the issues Some of the dialogue was terribly written There was the odd block of speech or narration that just broke my engagement with the story it felt so out of place The cover art of the issues is all good though some of the character depictions as you get into it start to look uite similar like the video game character models for humans and elves It was also inconsistent The first and fifth issues were tight with action and plot but the rest didn t achieve the same level Overall this series has potential Hopefully the next few issues will take it where it needs to go
