If you're not parts of this review may not make sense to you. With that assumption in mind This book made me want to play the game more. I imagine that's the ultimate point of all the MtG novels. So in that respect the book was a great success. I'm now more interested to build decks around cards in the Alara block, and look forward to crushing my next opponent with a "Bant" deck.

I al Disclaimer: I'm going to assume if you're reading this review, then you are also a Magic: the Gathering player. I also enjoyed getting to know the characters; Ajani Goldmane particularly. His was an easy story to identify with. He was the outcast, the underdog, and secretly the most powerful character.

Who hasn't felt neglected sometimes? Who hasn't felt like they have something special to offer but can't quite get it out?

His back-story rejected by his own people, friendless, etc. I hope he'll pop up in future MtG novels. He is the MtG "orphan hero" character if there ever was one.

I also appreciated the ending of this book. Bad things happened to the bad guys, good things happened for most of the good guys, but occasionally, bad things happened to some of the good guys i. Rafiq and Mubin. I felt like this brought an appropriate sense of "real life" to the ending.

One critique: I wanted a clearer explanation of "manna" and how the characters used it to cast spells. Because manna is such an essential part of the game I brought my game experience to reading the novel i. As the book's characters cast spells and referenced "feeling" manna I wished it would have been given more of a concrete definition. How far away can a Mage be from his or her preferred manna source?

Does manna flow through the Blind Eternities? Or does it come up from the planes? In the game, manna functions as a "resource," almost like money - if you have enough manna to spend you can cast a spell.

But in the book it was closer to "The Force" - "A mystical energy field created by all living things Perhaps another MtG novel explains manna better. I intend to keep reading them, so I guess we'll see. Lastly, and this is a gripe for Wizards of the Coast, not the author - this book was very poorly edited. I found numerous typos, and many instances in which an editor or proofreader was clearly needed.

This is only the second MtG novel I've read Agents of Artifice is the other , but in both I found more typos than is typical. So, Wizards, keep the MtG novels coming! But, please, get them proofread multiple times. View 2 comments. Oct 30, Scott Johnson rated it liked it Shelves: fantasy , fiction , mtg.

This was not great, but it wasn't bad either. It certainly subverted the problem I had previously with one novel per set being incredibly slow and stuffed with filler. But it was entertaining, if nothing else, especially now that there are This was not great, but it wasn't bad either.

But it was entertaining, if nothing else, especially now that there are characters I know and there will be some continuity moving forward. This was the start of the era that actually has the main planeswalker characters to follow, which solves the problem that led me to skip the Lorwyn block quadrilogy: shit is slow and boring enough without having to endure the establishment of new characters and worlds I don't care about.

It's just so much easier to just dive in when I already know Ajani and Bolas and Sarkhan and the rest, and I look forward to more of the same as I continue into this modern era. Aug 22, Colton Geschwandtner rated it liked it.

The author does a good job of explaining the shards of Alara and how they all connect, and he builds Ajani up decently as the reluctant hero but there are a few things that are left out that would leave anyone that doesn't read or understand magic with a ton of questions, like what is Nicol's actual endgame plot once he drains the shards. A good book for MTG lore fans but probably shouldn't be read by non fans. Enjoyable I have a love hate relationship with mtg stories.

Some I love and others make me angry. After the bull that was War of the Spark and Forsaken I've started reading older novels, web stories and fanfiction to fill my need for more magic during quarantine. I'm glad I bought this book and would recommend it to any magic the gathering fan. Each chapter is pretty short, about a few pages each. Some things will happen that make me say "cool, I'd like to know more about this" but they never return to it.

It's a good story, I enjoyed it, but the book felt incomplete. Dec 24, Ryan Mueller rated it really liked it. Damn good for a tie in novel for a card game. It's not perfect, but the shining moments of Ajani and Elspeth are worth it for any Magic fan, or someone interested in Magic but is unsure. Continuing on in the great tradition of Magic: the Gathering novels being mediocre, Alara Unbroken wasn't a bad read, but it wasn't a great read either.

Nov 21, Ryan rated it really liked it. I was of two minds when it came to reading this: on one hand, the only other M:tG book I've read was really, actively terrible. On other other hand, though, Alara was the current set when I started getting interested in Magic again, and I really liked it as a setting.
