As soon as I heard this book was coming out, I knew I had to have it, and I'm delighted to report that my faith was not misplaced. I've spent the last week reading it cover to cover, and have gleefully soaked up every word and image.

This isn't just an art book or game guide. This is an in-world encyclopedia that basically takes all of those codex entries you pick up during the course of game-play and organizes them around breathtaking concept art. There's a lot of new information as well, and an incredibly helpful timeline that spans the course of the book to help you put world events in order. They don't go into a /lot/ of detail about any one thing, but you get a good sampling of much of what makes up Thedas (the nations, the historical events, religions, races, the Blights, etc.). I imagine future volumes will be more focused, but this is just my prediction/hope.

Admittedly, I don't think this book is for someone who only has/had a passing interest in the games. I think this book is for the players who can't keep themselves from revisiting Thedas time and time again (I myself just finished my fifth play-through of Origins, have a healthy start on my fourth play-through of Awakening, and an itch to go through Dragon Age II again ASAP). If you didn't just like Dragon Age, but /loved/ it, this is definitely the book for you.

I can't wait to see what future volumes hold!

By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Oct. 16 2014
Format: Hardcover
Length: 1:21 Mins
Here's the companion book for the Dragon Age video games. The book's 184 pages, hardcover.

While you can actually get most of the information on the Dragon Age wikia page, the book format is more convenient as a package.

I'm not familiar with the game so I can't comment much except say that other reviewers on Amazon have pointed out several errors and inconsistency with the content. The contents include Legend, Map of Thedas, Races, Nations, Magic, Religion, The Fade, The Blight and Bestiary.

The art featured in the book is wonderful. There are beautiful illustrations of the environment, scenes, characters and creatures. The environments are painted in concept art style - they are not considered really finished but they feel finished and the mood is captured well. The artworks are printed quite big and they are almost on every page. There are several paintings filling two pages.

The layout of the book is also nice.

It's worth it just to buy for the art alone.

And this book reminds me very much of The World of Might and Magic: The Ashan Compendium, which is also a book to get if you're into fantasy art.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

I'm very happy with this purchase. The book arrived quickly (within a couple days) and was in perfect condition. The book itself is lovely, with high resolution and lots of information to really get you into the details of the world of Thedas. It includes a lot of things I'd never considered before about the different cultures, religions, races, characters, etc. It's a reasonable price too. I'd recommend this to any Dragon Age fans who are interested in learning more about the world or just love its art.
