Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

This is a book.

"You see a pennant waving tall and sluggish in the wind, a rising sun embroidered on the banner, the vanguard of a small troop of paladins. The atmosphere is buoyant, if restrained, and their armour has not yet been tarnished by the elements - this expedition is fresh, young, filled with zest and zeal." This is a fantasy novel wrapped in a game. The novel is dark, complex, and dense. Most teens (and most adults) would not have the patience to wade through the prose. If they do have that much patience, then this game would be good for them. There's a bunch of swearing, some gore, and a bit of sexual innuendo, but not a lot. And for that you get something a whole lot richer than your average YA novel, and certainly a lot better than your average video-game experience.
