    The story meanders a bit as it follows around a couple of grifters who meet and instantly hate each other. We do meet some characters from previous Dragon Age stories. The art is not great. It was too cartoony for me. Received a review copy from Dark Horse and Edelweiss. All thoughts are my own and in no way influenced by the aforementioned.

    This was slightly disappointing, considering it's from Dragon Age realm. I don't normally like to comment on art style, but given that the cover is absolutely gorgeous I was a little disappointed by how "cartoonish" the actual story art was. The story itself was pretty slow and with the exception of the two things listed below the spoiler warning, didn't appear to add much to the lore. ***SPOILER ALERT*** Basically the entire book follows two petty swindlers who are trying to get enough money to l This was slightly disappointing, considering it's from Dragon Age realm.

The story itself was pretty slow and with the exception of the two things listed below the spoiler warning, didn't appear to add much to the lore. ***SPOILER ALERT*** Basically the entire book follows two petty swindlers who are trying to get enough money to leave Ventus before the Qunari attack. They spend most of the book arguing about who is the better thief. Literally, that's it. Eventually we find out two major developments, who is in possession of Bartrand/Meredith's lyrium idol (which gives me hope that Fenris will finally be put back into the spotlight) and how far a certain Wolf's reach really is...both of these things come at the very end of the story (and I mean the very end). Other than that the only part that really saved this book was seeing both Dorian and (briefly) King Alistair again, plus Vaea and Ser Aaron (Dragon Age: Knight Errant). But unfortunately, even they could not rescue us from the boring empty plot.

    I would enjoy this novel a lot more if I was invested in the world of "Dragon Age". The premise was really good, and the main character was fantastic. But ultimately it fell flat for me as someone just coming into the narrative.

    Another rollicking good read in the world of Thedas penned by DeFilippis and Weir. It was wonderful to see Vaea and Ser Aaron again and meet some new recurring characters drawn from the dark, rich tapestry of Tevinter (and on top of that, we get to see Dorian again!). This is a good heist story about grifters and other elements of the moral in-between in this universe such as the Antivan Crows, and at the heart of it is the complex romantic and moral relationship of Ser Aaron (honest knight) and Another rollicking good read in the world of Thedas penned by DeFilippis and Weir.

A bit too short - only 3 issues - for it to be developed as much as I would like, but intriguing and enjoyable nonetheless with some tantalizing insight into Solas' machinations and the movement of dangerous red lyrium artifacts into enemy hands. Can't wait for the next series as well as all this portends for the plot of the fourth game.

    Another delightful addition to the Dragon Age comics! We got to some characters from the other comics in this run, and of course Dorian! :) I am absolutely loving the potential set up for some Dragon Age 4 story - the Qunari are getting more and more blatant about their Tevinter attacks. I can't wait for more!

    Easily the weakest of the Dragon Age comics this far. There's really nothing much in here of interest to fans and it has only the barest of connections to any of the games. Completely forgettable. It would be a one star, but I gave it two as the presentation of the hardcover is really nice.

    I absolutely loved the drawings but the story was not that good. I liked the story of the game way more!

    If these characters are not on my team when DA4 comes out I will be miffed.
