Avid player that I am, the book brings to life the world of Guild Wars 2 and sets the stage for the upcoming game.
The book is well-written and has a number of humorous moments to break the tension of the heroes' quests. The characters are well fleshed-out, although there are some minor out-of-character moments that don't really ruin the story.
Reading about the legendary group Destiny's Edge has gotten me looking forward to more GW2 news! And for the third book as well!
Recommended for GW players and non-players alike (would serve as a good intro to GW2). Don't miss out on the first book as well, Ghosts of Ascalon.
