The destruction of Kirkwall's Circle of Magi has brought chaos to the lives of mages and templars throughout Thedas. In the majestic White Spire, at the heart of templar power in Val Royeaux, tensions have reached the boiling point. To make matters worse, a mystical killer stalks the White Spire's halls, invisible to all save one lone mage, who is targeted as the prime suspect. With little hope of proving his innocence, his future looks to be short and grim . . . but his skill with spirit magic may save him yet. His fate will become entwined with a beautiful templar, a tormented soul, and Wynne, heroine of the Blight. Together they will uncover a secret far greater than they imagined--one that will change the fate of mages in Thedas forever.

A world of stories, whether it be a tale of the stoic Grey Wardens or the otherworldly Mortalitasi necromancers, from proud Dalish elves to the underhanded Antivan Crow assassins, these stories are filled with monsters, magic, and memorable characters making their way through a lethal world whose only constant is change.

Return to Thedas, the setting of BioWare's award-winning Dragon Age dark fantasy rpg, and discover what dark, forgotten secrets lurk in the history of the legendary Grey Wardens. The Grey Wardens are heroes across Thedas once again: the Archdemon has been defeated with relative ease and the scattered darkspawn are being driven back underground. The Blight is over. Or so it seems. Valya, a young elven mage recently recruited into the Wardens, has been tasked with studying the historical record of previous Blights in order to gain insight into newly reported, and disturbing, darkspawn phenomena. Her research into the Fourth Blight leads her to an encoded reference scrawled in the margins of an ancient map, and to the hidden diary of Issenya, one of the last of the fabled griffon riders. As the dark secrets buried in Isseyna's story unfold, Valya begins to question everything she thought she knew about the heroic Grey Wardens. . . .

A Reader, Second Edition
Author: Angus A. Somerville,R. Andrew McDonald
Pubpsher: University of Toronto Press
In assembling, translating, and arranging over a hundred primary source readings, Somerville and McDonald successfully illuminate the Vikings and their world for twenty-first-century students and instructors. The diversity of the Viking Age is brought to life through the range of sources presented, and the geographical and chronological coverage of these readings. The Norse translations, many of them new to this collection, are straightforward and easily accessible, and the chapter introductions contextualize the readings while allowing the sources to speak for themselves. The second edition of this popular reader has been revised and reorganized into fourteen chapters. Nearly twenty sources have been added, including material on children, games and entertainment, and runic inscriptions, as well as new readings on the martyrdom of Alfeah, the life of Saint Findan, and the martyrdom of Saint Edmund. The reader can be paired for classroom use with its companion volume, The Vikings and Their Age, authored by Somerville and McDonald. Together, these books provide comprehensive coverage for a course on the Vikings. Additional resources, such as a detailed bibliography and instructions on reading skaldic poetry, can be found on the History Matters website (www.utphistorymatters.com).
