Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves: The Road to Neverwinter

We rated this book:


While I absolutely adore stories set in fantastical realms, the ones I find myself traipsing through always seem to be Dungeons & Dragons adjacent rather than fully immersed in the intricacies and lore of the D&D-verse. But after watching Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves on the big screen last month I knew I had to read this prequel, and I was not disappointed!

The story is told from Edgin’s point of view as he relates the tale of his crew’s formation to his daughter Kira as a bedtime story. Starting with his wife’s demise and ending with a hint of the beginning of the heist that lands Edgin and Holga in Revel’s End prison where we find them at the beginning of the movie, this book does a fantastic job of providing essential backstory that deepens the context of the characters’ relationships and gives the reader insight into some of the motivations that play a massive part in the plot of the movie.

Basically, if you enjoyed the flashback scenes of the rag-tag found-family crew of misfits pulling off successful heists at the beginning of the film, you’re going to love this book.
