5.0 out of 5 stars Great end to a wonderful cycle April 28, 2014
By Kevin
Format:Kindle Edition
Dissension was a fabulous book that wrapped up the series nicely while creating a new and engaging tale fitting all of our favorite characters.

This book successfully incorporates the previously separate storylines of the first and second books and weaves a tale in which our characters must work hard and try new things. I loved how the author threw twists and turns though there were a few times (e.g. with the guardians) where I wish they had explained more about the aftermath of them. I understand this may be asking for too much but while I got closure from the characters I felt there was more about the world of Ravnica that I was still curious about and had wanted more answers for.

Overall though, Cory Herndon is successful in his conclusion to the Ravnica block, with wonderful and complex new characters and environments. By far, this was the best book in the Ravnica Cycle.

Engaging storyline. If you've played during the original Ravnica block, it intertwines well with the cards. 10/10 would read again.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Worthy End To The (Original) Ravnica Cycle November 6, 2013
By Milbury
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a rule, the third books in MTG trilogies tend to be burdened by the responsibility of tying together all the dangling plot points left by the previous two books together as neatly and efficiently as possible. More than once this has led to underwhelming climaxes, such as those in the Apocalypse and Scourge books. Dissension unfortunately continues this tradition, being forced, much like 2007's Spider-Man 3, to shove two climatic battles together towards the book's end. But for all the underwhelming climax, this book's superb characterization save it. The protagonist Agrus Kos, forced once again into a new allegiance to justify his presence, is serviceable as a hard-boiled cop archetype, but the real stars are the supporting characters. Jarad and Fonn are wonderful as guild leaders turned parents, Rakdos and Momir Vig are a joy to read (and if Herndon had gone the way of Vance Moore and made the entire third arc Vig-centric, I would not have complained), and the original character, Myc Zunich, feels in many ways like the true protagonist of the narrative, as opposed to Agrus Kos's weathered old hero. This novel holds the distinction of being the last MTG novel I ever read, as I've since retired from the game (hard to believe it's been seven years already), and as a coda to the stories and characters I grew up with, it carries its weight.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad June 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not my favorite MTG novel, not the worst though. As usual with the Ravnica stories, there is a severe lack of lore and world-building. It could have been so much more... magical, especially in an interesting setting like Ravnica. Oh well.
