Akilabar Killeen and Kranxx were especially shining, the former with ducjy charming mixture of innocence and creepiness, the latter with the c Caveat: Further more, through these characters and their conflicts, the book did a very good job of bridging the gap between Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2 by explaining a lot of the events of the past and present, without it reading like a condescending history lesson. I will miss them, but Thanks for telling us about the problem. Which in turn, I think, made me into a better, smarter person, and also introduced me to many more interests and fascinations. The group consists of varied personalities, many of which do not get along, but their conflicts were not tedious and I appreciated the way the different characters so strongly represented the basic character traits of their respective races, while still developing unique personalities and growing as characters as the story progressed.

It was just a lot of fun. This is not an intellectually challenging read but frankly my intellect needs a duchh now and again. At first, I thought getting through it would be a struggle because I had expected dudhy lose interest the moment I realize I have no i I had a very different take on the novel as someone who started off knowing very little about the lore of Guild Wars.

Asura are intellectual and cocky, Charr are gruff and brutal, Sylvari innocent and inquisitive This book, by far, was one of the best books I have read.

I started playing Guild Wars specifically to learn the lore of the series for myself, but this book serves as an acceptable background reader — at least for the Prophecies storyline.

Oh no, that sounds mawkish and hammy. Sep 20, Ashley N. I view RPG as crack for the scifi fan. Apr 02, Megz Pritchard rated it it was amazing. Asura, Norn, and Charr are all familiar races. But I still treasure the memory of reading those two Guild Wars novels, and they did something far more than getting me into a ducchy or increasing my interest in a particular video game; they helped me survive nearly a week with my grandfather!

He said it could be a bestseller half-jokingly, half hoping. But it was these two Guild Wars tie-in novels that popped my literary cherry.



Feb 16, Kastarnia Kozal rated it really liked it. It was of course because he knew I liked reading and dabbled in writing that he asked me.
