Asunder is the side of Cole's story that he tells you of his friends Rhys and Evangeline. Now if you aren't familiar with the Dragon Age series, I feel like it be hard to get into this book. There's so much background knowledge you have to have. You have to had played Inquisition to understand the politics, who the Divine is, what The Circle is, The Fade. If you haven't played Dragon Age: Inquisition then you won't enjoy this book.
If you have.
This book is amazing. It gives you so much backstory on these characters, on Cole's character on Wynne from Origins. It's beautifully written with changing perspective between Cole, Evangeline, and Rhys. It weaves a story starting in the White Spire and goes across Thedas to end up again in an epic battle in the White Spire. I only cried once reading this book so I've got that going for me. It also makes me wish that Rhys and Evangeline were characters in the game I could directly talk too. I want to know more about what they look like and sound like. It's like for once I actually want to see the movie even though I've read the book. The writer did an amazing job capturing their world, their were a few print errors but as a whole, thoroughly enjoyed it. Except for the fate of one red headed mage. I feel they took everything they had written about this character was cast away to tie up a plot hole. She didn't deserve that. She didn't deserve the ending they gave her. It was to move her out of the way for Rhys' plot to continue and hoping you'd stop caring what happened to her. But I do. I'd read a whole damn book on that character.
So if you have feelings on Dragon Age whatsoever I highly recommend this book.
Would I re-read it: Yes
Would I recommend it: Yes.
Am I going to keep it: Yes.
