I was a little bit worried whether Patrick Weekes could write as good books from Dragon Age universe as David Gaider had, but after finishing The Masked Empire I must admit that this books is as good as The Calling and The Stolen Throne. Again, readers who already had played games and read previous books are going to have great joy from finding references to some events and characters. Also, this book seems as a great introduction to the Dragon Age: Inquisition, game I'm going to start playing today.
Weekes has good writing style and knows how to handle differents characters. I would love to read some more dialogues though. Neverthless, it's a great read with an amazing ending.
