What do you get when a video game writer tries his hand at writing a novel In all honesty a novel overflowing with horrid plot pacing and unrealistic characterizationDragon Age The Stolen Throne serves as a preuel to the video game Dragon Age Origins The Stolen Throne intrigued me mostly because it was written by David Gaider Gaider has been a blessing to the video game community for his work on Baldur s Gate and Knights of the Old Republic Sadly Gaider does not understand that writing for video games and writing a novel are to entirely different beastsThe novel follows the generic plotline of a rebel prince and his compatriots trying to reclaim his rightful place on the throne To befit such a generic plot premise Gaider decided to make the prince as generic as possible Prince Maric has all of the trappings of a storybook prince handsome idealistic and he even gets a mystical sword towards the end of the novel Maric leads his army through poorly written battles and obstacles The biggest issue I had with Maric was that he must suffer from some sort of undiagnosed bipolar disease because at the beginning of the novel he is the picture perfectidealistic prince but at the end of the novel he turns into a coldblooded murderLike Maric the setting of the Stolen Throne suffers from a disease Tolkien disease to be exact The symptoms of Tolkien dieses include long bearded dwarves who live in tunnels pointed ear elf archers and a gallant prince with a mystical sword There is even a segment of the novel when Maric and his compatriots travel through a tunnel that is a carbon copy of the Mines of Moria There is one saving grace to The Stolen Throne it comes in the form of the character Loghain While Maric gets all of the glory Loghain stands in the shadow and formulates and executes all of the rebel army s battle plans If it was not for Loghain being in the book I would have most likely stopped reading the Stolen Throne but he held my attention the whole novel with his realistic viewpoint on life The Stolen Throne as a fantasy novel is a complete mess that will haunt book stores and libraries for years to come Even as a video game novel it fails to expand on the story of Dragon Age Origins I end this review as a sorely disappointed fantasy reader and a jilted gamer

The thrilling preuel to Dragon Age Origins the hit role playing video game from award winning developer BioWare Dragon Age The Stolen ThroneAfter his mother the beloved Rebel ueen is betrayed and murdered by her own faithless lords young Mari. David Gaider once wrote the following on Bioware s blog about The Stolen Throne I decided on a preuel We had identified years ago that there was an excellent untold story to be found in the Ferelden rebellion against Orlais It s referred to many times in the course of the game but there was a lot that could be said about it It was a great tale Check one mistress right This was before Drew had even written his most excellent Mass Effect preuel so we thought we were being all innovative and stuff Ooo preuel At any rate I still thought it was a good idea I put together an outline that touched on all those world elements to at least a degree and explained in detail what would happen in each chapter and then submitted it Surely they wouldn t like it right What are the oddsThe full blog entry can be read at Dear David GaiderI did like it Not only because this story told us about how Ferelden achieved independence from Orlais and how Maric turned from a somewhat clumsy guy into the impressive king that he later was not only because we could see the Dragon Age world including its religion and creatures thirty years before the start of the first game but also and in my case mainly because of the fantastic insights that it gave into Loghain s character Loghain is one of the most thought provoking villains in the history of video games ever imo and after reading The Stolen Throne I understand the reasons behind view spoilerhis betrayals hide spoiler
