Good Story, Big Action, Witty Dialogue
on December 11, 2013
I still haven't finished it yet, but so far its definitely been 4 stars. Tezzeret, the main character, provides an extremely entertaining perspective on the mutliverse. His dialogue and interaction with other characters (and himself) is humorous, witty, and insightful. The plot, while not the most thrilling or mind-bending, is still quite solid and takes some clever turns thanks to the liberal application of complex magic.
The action is frequent and explosive, and the author skillfully brings to life the spells and creatures of MTG. While not overly detailed, the pace and urgency of the writing seems to mirror the state of mind of whichever character is experiencing the action.
I may be biased in that both Tezzeret and Nicol Bolas (another character) are two of my favorite Magic: The Gathering card characters, any fan of the game (or swashbuckling fantasy) will find an entertaining story with colorful characters and insight into the MTG universe.
