I read this because, hey, it was cheap, and I'm a fan of the Infinity Blade games on my IPad. Plus I've recently discovered Brandon Sanderson's writing and am in love with his Mistborn Trilogy.

I don't know what I would have thought of the story if I hadn't played the games and known what was going on. In that aspect, it was great because it explained some things that the game hadn't.

In other ways, I wanted more. This is just a snippit in time between game one and game two. I didn't relate to Siris as much as I would have liked to, probably because I can't understand how he managed to maintain that insane level of self-control. :p That's definitely more a reflection on me than him.

I would say it's worth a read, especially if you do play the games. It's not my favourite, but I don't regret picking it up.
