Dragon Age: Hard in Hightown

Ponce and Ricardo German Ponce Torres with a painted cover by EM GistTwenty years of patrols have chiseled each and every stone of the Kirkwall streets into city guardsmen Donnen Brennokovic Weary and weathered Donnen is paired with a recruit so green he might as well have leaves growing out of his armo This is a short novel in the style of Varric not a long novel like Asunder or The Masked Empire and most of the sparkle comes from his writing voice and the cameos of Hawke s family crew and acuaintances The story itself is fairly standard although there were a few twists I didn t predict but it is nonetheless uite entertaining The illustrations are nice too although because a few artists contribute the character designs are erraticAs of writing this s description says that this is 96 pages long both the physical and Kindle copies are 72 pages long This is MUCH shorter than the video of Brian Bloom reading indicates which is very misleading Also I was initially alarmed by the rough edges of the pages I then discovered that this is called deckling and is an intentional aesthetic choice on the publisherprinter s part

Prolific dwarven author and heroic companion of the Dragon Age games Varric Tethras brings us the collected edition of his breakthrough crime noir drama Hard in Hightown with help from his trusted human confidante Mary Kirby This volume is beautifully illustrated by Stefano Martino lvaro Sarraseca Andres I enjoyed this book but I do have a few critiuesFirstly the price is a bit steep for a 72 page story I was expecting a full length novel for the cost of this book but it is actually a short story It s not broken up into chapters or anythingAt least it s a good story There are some typing errors uotation marks where none should be and missing uotation marks where they should exist in the dialogue but nothing majorThe book is fully illustrated and the art is beautiful There s a picture almost on every other page Of course that means the book is like 30 some pages and not 72 But the characters don t look the same every time so I don t understand what that s about There s a noblewoman who is central to the story and in two pictures she is seen with short cropped black hair one at the beginning of the book and one at the end But there s another page in the middle of the story where she has long flowing hair and it s not shaded in It doesn t make senseSo there are some editing errors in both the text and the artwork But I was also expecting the book to feature the cast of Dragon Age II A few of the characters are there with changed names For example Fenris has become Ferris and is a bartender at the Hanged Man Isabela is pretty much unchanged and is called Belladonna Merill is in the alienage and Aveline is the captain of the guard each also using an alias If any of the other characters are there however I can t tell itI m not sure who the main character is even supposed to be but the plot is about a man about to retire from the guard but first he wants to solve one final murder So the story is a whodunit murder mystery I liked the story but it was a bit predictableA nobleman with an impressive collection of weapons tries to buy the very sword that slayed Andraste But before he either pays for the acuisition or has it in his hands he is found murdered The retiree becomes a detective trying to figure out who killed the nobleman and why His trail leads him to Isabela s ship where she tells him she procured the sword but never got paid before the man was murdered And he isn t the last to dieI love a good murder mystery but like I said it s made pretty obvious early on who the culprit is And the book concludes rather abruptly with little climax What I really enjoyed about the story was the setting I thought I knew Kirkwall but the book talks about corners you don t actually get to explore in the game For example although we visit the elven alienage in Dragon Age II the book also discusses a dwarven enclave and a foreign uarter where Orlesians and Antivans live I found those sorts of details fascinatingAnd the book was well written and descriptive just as you might imagine Varric would write There s even one point where he s struggling to find a way to elegantly describe Belladonna s ship and just gives upThe Dragon s Jewels was a big boat The largest boat in the harbor A carved figurehead of a woman painted in vivid colors and making a remarkably lewd gesture drew the eye past the sedate merchant vessels The pointy bits towered majestically over the water The roundish wooden part seemed like it could crush armadas beneath itsst I don t know wood It was the greatest boat in the history of boatsIf you loved Dragon Age II I think you ll enjoy this book a lot If you haven t played the game it will make you want to There are a few nitpicky things but as a whole I thought the story was fun and I would read this again even knowing whodunit in the end

    Fun for fans of the games and it had some interesting descriptions and witty turns of phrase I was really hoping for a noir type mystery set in the Dragon Age universe and it had the framework for one but it wasn't fleshed

    I’ve been a devotee of Messere Tethras for uite some time but to be honest this is the first of his books I’ve ever had the opportunity to read What a delight Action packed beautifully illustrated and full of mystery and mayhem from cover to cover It left me in such high spirits I immediately began planning a return visit to Kirkwall so I could once again see the book’s settings for myself I do hope that Ms Kirby persuades

    This is a short novel in the style of Varric not a long novel like 'Asunder' or 'The Masked Empire' and most of the sparkle comes from 'his' writing voice and the 'cameos' of Hawke's family crew and acuaintances T

    The book arrived in good condition and despite some other reviews the uneven page edges were uite clearly an editorial choice If you enjoyed your time playing through Dragon Age II and Dragon Age Inuisition then I would highly recommend this book

    A good fun read but very short and not worth the price IMO The pages have also been left intentionally jagged but instead of adding anything to the reading experience they just make the book seem even cheaper than it is If you're a big DA fan like me I would recommend it but not at it's current price as it will
