Let’s get geeky with Dragon Age: Tevinter Nights!
This is a collection of short stories from the Dragon Age universe by several different authors. So many, in fact, that I’ll just list them at the end of the post, instead of at the top like usual.
As regular readers will know, I’m obsessed with the Dragon Age games and the lore behind them. So I had to read the antrology that’s clearly meant to create hype for the upcoming fourth Dragon Age game.
And guess what? I’m hyped.
The stories turned out to be much darker than I expected, but that is in no way a bad thing. There’s also some funny moments between all the horror, and I think Lessef from the story An Old Crow’s Old Tricks might be my new favorite character of all time. A tiny old lady, who’s a scary and professional assassin one moment, and the next jumps onto her servant’s shoulders and yells “Onward, to cookies!”
Definitely what I needed, after the nightmares The Horror of Hormak gave me…

I’m so excited to read this! I’m hoping it’ll get me even more excited for Dragon Age 4! 🙂
It certainly did for me!
This is short stories? I didn’t know that! For some reason I thought it was another novel. I’m much more interested in it as an anthology! Also: I am SO HYPED for another Dragon Age game! YAY!
Yeeeeeesss! Someone to share the hype with!
And I actually agree… I think short stories work especially well for a game franchise with so many different characters, cultures and storylines. It’s really nice to get something bite-sized from all parts of Thedas!
Yes yes! I mean, Varrick is great, but I can only stand so much of his sense of humor at once, you know?
That being said… I sorta want to read “Sword and Shields” to see if it’s as cheesy and awful as I imagine every time I do the scene with Cassandra.
