I’m always waffling on how to best to rate a book that annoys me not because it is badly written, but rather because the characters in it and their boneheaded Let me begin with a statement that has no context, and likely no meaning to someone who hasn’t either read the books or played the game: Thrown into the mix are liberal Templar knight Evangeline and the mysterious yet sympathetic serial killer Cole who may or may not be a ghost.

And no, there are no greater-than-life heroes to save the day. Everything in it was new and interesting to read about. The inclusion of a character from the previous two books, toward the end, felt like fan service. He overhears that Rhys is leaving and follows the templar who was in the crypt to learn more.

She has sanctioned an experiment that could forever change the Rite of Tranquillity and perhaps alter the balance between the Circle and the Chantry.

Fortunately, Rhys is one of the biggest colossal idiots in Thedas and Wynne is too much of a pacifist to the point of folly, so the enemies here do stand somewhat of a chance.
