Lore discrepancies[edit]

I'm reading the novel now, and even within the first eight chapters there are enough lore discrepancies with the game that it's starting to bother me. Stuff like:

"[Eir] looked at the two asura [Snaff and Zojja], only rising waist high, and at her wolf, who rose only to her ribs."

Unless Eir is the shortest norn ever and Snaff & Zojja the tallest asura, this is simply incorrect. According to in-game screenshots Zojja is maybe mid-thigh height to Eir. Also just checked ingame, Garm is slightly less than waist-high to Eir.

"[Caithe's] spike-heeled boots also looked like dark seedpods, lifting her three inches taller than she would have stood."

Caithe doesn't wear high heels in either her past or present forms in the game. I hope the author didn't try to imply she wore high heels to run and fight in the wilderness... (when the game cares enough to give her a reasonably practical outfit).

"The light ceased, and Zojja’s head popped from the opening, her hair slightly singed."

Zojja doesn't have any hair in the game. (Maybe she singed it all off 😂)

I will add to the list if I come across any more. -- Kazerniel (talk) 18:57, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

Price[edit]

Is there really a reason to list the price on here? For one, it links to Amazon, so it'll probably get changed pretty often especially since it's an older book now. And two, does the price really belong on the wiki even if we were to keep it up to date? --76.183.238.126 00:08, 1 August 2017 (UTC)

Older convos redux[edit]

Release Date[edit]

The date in my copy of Edge of Destiny (just got it today, finished today, AWESOME!) says January 2011. TiffanySmith.8216 (talk) 00:32, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Great Book[edit]

This is now my favorite book of all time! Drasi, they may act like 'teenagers hitting puberty' but they are in-character, which for me, (and yes, I'm a bookworm, too)means I can see them doing exactly that in-game. Be careful - that comment almost made me not get the book! Anyway, one of my favorite parts was 'Did you say Rurik?' 'Rytlock!' 'You stole his sword, wouldn't be that hard to steal his name.' I laughed so loud, and so long... also, '...it's particularly dense.' 'perfect for depicting my student!' And also when neither Eir nor Garm noticed the two asura standing in the doorway... rofl. could you get the old look back?' 'what look?' 'The look that you are smarter than everyone else and that they will be shocked when they realize it.' suddenly, the look was back.' This book is full of hilarious moments! no "wonder" we couldn't find it!' Rytlock shouted. 'the sanctuary's been in Logan's boot! I laughed soo hard at all of these... and those are only the ones I remember. And I only found one misspelled word in the entire book! The entire thing gave me so much insight into the character of Destiny's Edge, as well as making me care about Snaff. My only regret in the entire book is that I don't get to hear what Snaff's voice sounds like... I can totally hear their voices saying their things throughout the book (especially Zojja), but I don't know what Snaff sounds like!! And there was too little of Glint... one of my favorite parts was Glint making them hear things in the others' minds, and they all purposely thought of good things. I'll probably use that in my fanfiction for bringing DE together again... anyway. I know I'm treating this comment like a book review, but that's mainly because I think this is the best place to do it. I said this was my favorite book? I'll say it again. And Harry Potter comes a close second. Guess what? 'J. Robert King' Initials? JRK. Switch the R and the K and you get JKR... also, R and K and J could also stand for Rytlock and Kralkatorrik/Jomrag fighting each other. TiffanySmith.8216 (talk) 00:50, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
