It imparts a great deal of information, but it's very structured, as if the author had a strict outline to follow, and was given a set number of pages to get things done. So, in one chapter, you get introduced to a character, in the next, the character meets another character, they bond, they adventure. The end result is that it feels very rushed, very contrived, and isn't as entertaining as it could have been.
It also feels as though certain sections or dialogue lines were thrown in by someone else, again, like part of an outline was included verbatim. The author attempted to fit them in, they simply don't appear to match the style of the surrounding writing.
There are also sections that seem written to provide game-play tips, which I didn't expect (or welcome). Things like a party of players providing different roles during a battle to ensure victory. Again, seems like something that was required to be placed in the book, but didn't really seem appropriate.
Overall, I'd recommend reading the book, simply for the lore (it IS a good story), but keep your expectations low on the actual quality. Hopefully the third book does a better job of telling the story.
I can understand the more negative (3 or less) reviews on the book because of how it was rushed in parts of it, but like said, I even liked parts of this more than GoA, and would only place the book a slight notch below it. While I do believe a lot more could have been done with this book, mainly the battles with the Dragon Champions, I can understand too that they may have had a limited amount of time/space to work with in the book, and I think they pulled it off to the best of their ability.
If you are a die-hard fan of Guild Wars like myself, I believe you will truly love the book as much as I did. For people who are not as intricated within the game or the lore, sure, I can understand why they may not have liked it. But to be the connecting novel for the game, it did a beautiful job in doing so, it completed what it was meant to do, not be one of the "best fantasy books of all time."
If you love Guild Wars, (myself going past 6 years now), and have nothing to do before Guild Wars 2, definitely give Edge of Destiny a go-round.
The battle dialogue also seems unrealistic (nobody spares the time to cheer "good job" to someone in the heat of combat), this isn't like your teammate making a sack on the quaterback. Yea it's fantasy, but you still want readers to buy into the characters and drama.Read more ›
