I Have read this book 3 times in the past week and I will say this, from begining to end it is awesome. It will grab your attention and not let go. It is a wonderful book, and the writing flows. I will be picking up the sequels to this book thanks to jeff grubb. A must read for anyone interested in fiction or anyone who has every played magic.

This is a great book to start of the Ice Age. Jeff Grubb has done a great job. You may like Jodah or not but the book is filled with action and adventure for magic players and non-magic players. I advise you not to read the book Rath and Storm, Gerrard ruins the book.

From book one to book three, Jeff Grubb illustrates and elaborates on the key events, people and items of the Ice Age cycle. He uses his knowledge of the MTG world to bring Leshrac, Fraylise and other important characters into the storyline, and he compliments it all with a strong and enigmatic lead character (Jodah) who kicks more butt than any other. Overall, the Ice Age trilogy is the best set of fantasy novels I've read in ages, and I would recommend them to anyone, even if they know little about the MTG world.

I'm not really a big book reader, but this book i just couldn't put down. If you like fantasy books as much as me. You will love this book. i don't know how to really play the game, but i was for the most part able to understand all of it. I'm now on the next part of the series it's almost as good as the first

Grubb's style that was evident in The Brother's War is strongly present here as well. In his style, there isn't the good-guy, bad-guy archtypes, but HUMANS. Noone in his stories I have read are without flaw, nor are they inherently good nor evil. That style of writing brings a unique magic into the storys behind the Magic card game Grubb has written. If you're a player of the game, you can also see that Grubb has done his 'homework' on the history VERY WELL.

A well rounded story with good plot points. You must have played the game and be familiar with the Dark Expansion to know of Tivadar, Ith, etc. I can't wait for 'Eternal Ice'

This is one of the best Magic the gathering books in the set, it doesn't require knowlage of the card game to enjoy. Anyone who likes fantasy would love this book.

Since it's not a great novel, with totaly worked characters and places, it is a perfect read for a reader/begginer... It's plot of story contains the Dark, expansion set from MTG tcg, and you will enjoy it more, if you play or played the game. If you did not, you might get lost sometimes, but it is good both ways... If you like the card game, or prefer an easy reading... Start with this. And Grubb is a good writer, that is a fact.
