The Masked Empire was mostly about the game of politcs and betrayal between Celene, Briala, and Gaspard, and about the mystery of Felassan. This book is just about a bunch of generic heroes fighting a Blight and doing a pretty shitty job of it. Not being involved in their personal stories, I just couldn't connect enough to divorce myself from the knowledge of how dumb the plot was. I enjoyed it because it was full of Dragon Age lore and I learned some stuff and there were griffons in it and I'm a shill.
View all 5 comments. Mar 31, Detya Auberta rated it it was amazing Shelves: I think I cried a bit at the end. But hey, it's dark fantasy! As DA book: Love Griffons? Love Grey Wardens? Love Grey Warden mages? Love a tragic strong female lead? Andoral's Blight is far more devastating than Urthemiel's and you can definitely feel it here.
There's no Witch of the Wilds to get you out from sacrificing a Warden's life when killing the Archdemon, and the devastation isn't just contained within one country - it's all over the continent!
Isseya is probably one of my favorite female protagonists right now. Yes, she suffers from consequences, and it's great and so, so sad. Also, she describes herself as plain and she is treated as such!
In fact, she is very grateful that she's plain, as beauty is a curse in disguise for an elven woman in Dragon Age. The author could've given her a romantic subplot with Calien, but she chose not to, and I'm glad.
Instead, she focused of Isseya's role as a mage warden and her bond with her griffon, Revas, as well as her sadly waning bond with her twin brother, Garahel.
And on Valya's side, this book also depicts the Mage-Templar war from the perspective of those running away from it, as well as likely setting up DA4 because of a very special reveal in the end of the book. All-in-all, I don't think I would've enjoyed it as much if I weren't familiar with the DA universe there's a lot of inside jokes and references that would be missed , so I wouldn't recommend it to someone who's not familiar with DA.
Yay, now I can play Dragon Age Inquisition. I think I rushed it a little bit as I'm very anxious to get onto the game. But, even so it was a well written book, giving an interesting background into what happened during the fourth Blight. It skips back and forth in time quite a bit but is easy to follow.
Recommended to Dragon Age fans only. Mar 22, Cathy Keaton rated it liked it Shelves: I barely had any reason to make myself read it, other than to find out what really happened to cause the griffons to become extinct. That is revealed, thankfully. I love the Dragon Age games and their world and characters and stories and everything Last Flight tells two different stories. In the "present" day concurrent with the events presented in Dragon Age: Shortly after she discovers an old diary.
The second story, as told from that diary, takes place during the 4th Blight and has its m Disclaimer: The second story, as told from that diary, takes place during the 4th Blight and has its main character Isseya, an elven Grey Warden mage who is also the sister of Garahel, the man who slew the Archdemon who caused the 4th Blight.
The book is quite dark and dreary. It doesn't shy away from painting a very vivid picture about the realities of a Blight and the sacrifices that have to be made when fighting darkspawn. Isseya also gets quite the arc and very noticeable grows from page to page which doesn't really seem to happen often enough in video game tie-ins. There are some bits and pieces missing, some inconsistencies and small mistakes which maybe some extra editing could have prevented but overall it didn't really affect my enjoyment more than a few raised eyebrows.
May 10, Samhain rated it really liked it.
There's not much to say apart that the Dragon Age books are, like their comic counterparts, surprisingly good fantasy novels of their own. I would recommend them without hesitation, even to people who haven't played the games. Especially to the ones who would like to start reading fantasy stories but feel overwhelmed when they research popular series.
They're short, nice reads, and a good introduction to "Oh good gosh there's a mythical creature in my medieval times! Sep 20, Natalie rated it it was amazing Shelves: The fact that it took me 17 days to read the previous book really worried me because I thought it would put me in a book slump.
It was the book's fault and not mine, because I read this in a day! This book tells the story of a mage named Valya during the time of Inquisition who is researching the Fourth Blight for the Grey Wardens. She stumbles across a diary that turns out to be written by Isseya, the sister of the hero of the Fourth Blight, Garahel.
Valya thinks this is all pretty st The fact that it took me 17 days to read the previous book really worried me because I thought it would put me in a book slump. Valya thinks this is all pretty strange because there is no mention of Isseya anywhere, although her diary makes out that she was just as prominent a figure as her brother during the Blight. Most of the story takes place during the Fourth Blight, but it is not in diary form, it's told in third person like the rest of the story, but each chapter is marked with the year to indicate where you are.
The lack of diary format was good because I hate that type of book, but it also got really confusing with the lore. This happened quite a bit, and I don't like to think of myself as a stupid person who forgets that sort of thing Now, let's talk about the real heroes of this book The griffons.
This book has griffons, and that's not a spoiler because there's five on the front cover and three on the back, and the book is called The Last Flight. This book fills in a lot of the lore on the Fourth Blight and how the griffons came to be extinct, or more importantly, how they became extinct so quickly that people forgot they ever existed and they became creatures of legend.
Grey Wardens had a big bond with the griffons they rode to the point where some would choose to die if their griffon died. This obviously led to many tearful moments for me because if there's one thing that makes me cry; it's the friendship between a human and an animal. An excellent ending to my Dragon Age reading, and now I have to be sad that I have no more books, games, or graphic novels to read on the subject and my lore-knowledge will be left to get rusty until they publish something else.
Dec 29, Renee rated it it was ok. I'm a big fan of the Dragon Age series and read this mostly because I'm interested in learning more about the lore of the franchise. On that front, Last Flight delivers. There is a ton of interesting insight about the history of the Wardens and their motivations. However, I cannot say that the book is particularly good beyond that. Last Flight is a frame story: The main narrative occurs during the Dragon Age basically present day as far as the franchise is concerned , but most of the plot comes I'm a big fan of the Dragon Age series and read this mostly because I'm interested in learning more about the lore of the franchise.
The main narrative occurs during the Dragon Age basically present day as far as the franchise is concerned , but most of the plot comes from the diary of a Warden from the Fourth Blight. This is part of the problem. Neither narrative is really developed, and so what should be some of the most dramatic topics of the DA universe the extinction of griffons and end of the Fourth Blight fall flat.
Unlike other DA novels, the Last Flight does not currently tie in with any characters from the games. The characters in Last Flight do not have the benefit of additional development from codex entries, cameos, etc. These are new characters, and a new plot, and the former is horribly underdeveloped. I did not hate or like anyone. When characters died I was lucky if I remembered who they were, let alone cared about it. I should have been raging against the injustice of the events in the book, or amazed at the heroism.
Instead I felt like I was reading one very long military report of events, and it was frankly pretty boring. Dec 14, Julia Winegeart rated it liked it Shelves: This book has a different author than the previous books and it takes place a little later so it's definitely a departure in some ways, but it actually steps up the game in many ways, especially in representation.
There is a gender fluid character!
There are women who are integral to the plot and have no romantic storylines! The main character actually No fridging! There are characters of varying races! The tone was also a lot darker than previous books. It takes place over the course of a This book has a different author than the previous books and it takes place a little later so it's definitely a departure in some ways, but it actually steps up the game in many ways, especially in representation.
It takes place over the course of a Blight which is just a siege war with evil essentially so yeah, it's bound to be a little less lighthearted than Maric being goofy on another road trip.
Honestly it was kinda like pages of watching a train wreck happen because the characters are in difficult positions that have no good options, so it was an uncomfortable epic page turner. And despite early appearances, the plot avoids being obvious and taking the easy way out story telling wise.
So overall I definitely enjoyed it, and love the complexity it added to the DA world and am excited to see where the ending of this book leads in the upcoming products. It will definitely get you hooked and it's a good read but I can't say I was as invested with the characters in this as I was with those in previous books, though that may say more about my personality than the books.
Sep 18, Natasha rated it it was amazing Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. A well crafted story in the dragon age unvierse. It is not really a tie in to Dragon age inquisition as the story takes place far away from the playable areas in the next dragon age game.
It is more like a quiet time reflecting on the ruthless decisions of the past to ensure their would be future generations. The conflict may be differnt from the game but what people do in desperation is still the same. If you want that read dragon age asunder and the masked empire. Isseya was such a compelling A well crafted story in the dragon age unvierse.
Isseya was such a compelling character. She did everything to ensure the blight would not consume the world. She never pursued any romatntic relationship and always tried to find ways to save civillians even when most of them consider her kind beneath them. She was truly selfless and felt real and I still symapthized with her even when performed the blood magic ritual that led to gryphon extinction.
The book showed what desperate times does to people. It can turn you into a monster or a pinacle of self sacrifce. The big flaw of the bookis the framing device narrative.
It just felt so token. Some bits were interesting but there was far too bits to care much for the dragon age generation characters. It have been better to lengthen the framing narrative but with what is its just okay.
The ending made me so happy the griffons were no no longer exctinct. May 04, ZC rated it liked it. Sep 23, Jenn Forte rated it really liked it. I've enjoyed all of the Dragon Age books so far, except for The Masked Empire was too difficult for me to get into at the time I read it , and this book is no exception. I find the story engaging and well-paced, and it fits entirely into the known Dragon Age canon exceptionally well. This is a novel that largely depends on the reader knowing the universe for some of the details, but otherwise as a standalone story it's really excellent.
The author has done a great job of weaving known lore into I've enjoyed all of the Dragon Age books so far, except for The Masked Empire was too difficult for me to get into at the time I read it , and this book is no exception. The author has done a great job of weaving known lore into a story that introduces the reader both to ancient history related to the Dragon Age franchise and new events which should be upcoming in future publications.
This is a good read for fantasy and Dragon Age fans.

Having played all the games and read all the novels, I cannot wait to discover the implications this might have in the upcoming game! A must read for any Dragon Age fan!
I thoroughly enjoyed the book as it filled in some lore and history from the games but also told the story from someone who wasn't recognized by society as the hero. I recommend that anyone curious about the griffons disappearance from the games should read this novel. Yet another fantastic novel set in the world of Dragon Age. Even if you're not already a fan of the Dragon Age novels and games, this novel can stand on its own. I'll be looking into more books by Liane Merciel. I still enjoyed the 1st book the most.
