Guildpact focuses it's storyline on Utvara, an desolate area of Ravnica outside of the city. They don't make the relationship between the city and this area as clear I would have liked, but it was enough to get you to understand what it was and why it was. The use of the guilds and the guildpact was small yet the times it came of use it was of the utmost importance. This combined with a fabulous complex and interesting guild system made it fun and easy to identify characters by their guild or assume certain characteristics about characters based on the guild they were in.
Overall, this is a fun and interesting book that talks about a side of Ravnica that is often left untouched. I would recommend it, but be ready to have to invest some time into the novel before it really becomes engaging. With that said, once it gets you, you're hooked.
Time's almost up.
Guildpact follows Kos, now a retired Wojek, twelve years after the decamillennial into Utvara - a treasure trove waiting to be exploited. The Gruul, Izzet, and Orzhov have vying interests for control of the region, but there's something lingering in the air besides the kuga mot to which all are none-the-wiser. The Schism is growing.
There's a whole new cast of characters than in Book I, and you'll be longing for Feather, Fonn, and the familiar back in Ravnica proper. Yeah, it's painful. Among the notable in Book II are Teysa and Crix. You'll love them, you'll despise them, and then you'll love them some more. Thrulls, ogres, the nephilim, hyrdopyro- and pyrohydromancers, imps, half-demons, drakes, Niv-Mizzet the Dragon, and the lot are all waiting to meet you in Guildpact.
The ending couldn't be more suspenseful.
Dissension, hurry up!
Guildpact, the second book of the Ravnica series, gives the reader three perspectives on a major event within the city, one from Agrus Kos, a former Wojek lieutenant and hero to the people, another from Teysa Karlov, the new Scion of the legally-minded Orzhov Syndicate, and the last from the point of view of Crix, a messenger goblin and favored experiment of the high-ranking Izzet magelord Zomaj Hauc. The events they witness are monumental, focused on the aftermath of a mana-compression singularity bomb test in a section of Ravnica occupied by savage Gruul undesirables. Though seen at first as an attempt to clear a new path for development, something greater and more sinister is at hand, as the three find out in this exciting new expansion in the Ravnica storyline from Corey Herndon.
