Overview

The concluding title to the fast-paced Onslaught Cycle. This is the third and final title in the most current Magic: The Gathering trilogy corresponding to a card set release. This title releases a month prior to the card set to give readers an advance look at the coming set. Author J. Robert King has written multiple titles in the Magic line and edited several Magic anthologies, making him very well known among current Magic readers.

The battle rages on!

Amid the titanic clash between Phage and Akroma, all Dominaria shuddered. Now, out of the destruction and chaos a new force arises, and Kamahl must face his greatest foe: Karoma. Her arms spread to the very clouds, and her robes trail like rays of sunlight.

She is the destroyer.

She is the answer.

this book was one of the best ones, but legions is still the best one

This was great . Not as good as the previous novels but still good.

The entire Onslaught block was fantastic, and Scourge is no exception. If you're familiar with the card game, this book is a must.

This book fails to live up to the Glory of it's predessecor's 'Onslaught', and (reverant pause) 'Legions', but is still entertaining, and will hold me over until the release of Monsters of Magic, and Moons of Mirrodin.

As Kyle said, I agree. King(Author) would not disgrace Magic in a way that it took place in our real world. Also if you have not read the first two books, then you should they are good. I am really excited to see what King has in store for us. I am sure it will be good. And do not insult Magic, reviewer #1, because you have no idea what you are saying.

This book hit my local shelf the first tuesday in may. by midnight, i'd read it cover to cover, and all i can say is WOW. There were some plot twists i never saw coming, as well as the reintroduction of characters long lost (multani, teferi, even yawgmoth and phyrexia) you find out just what the mirari is, and what it's purpose is. other people i've talked to didn't care too much for the reversion back to almost the old story line, but the book is a must read for any fan of the magic: the gathering series. A nice, and surprising, end to the story of otaria.

I encourage everyone to ignore the previous review of this book. It is clearly some idiot who hasn't even read 'Legions'. For one thing the First is dead. For another noone would ever shame magic novels by having them take place in the real world. This book isn't out yet and noone knows what it's about yet (and Mirrodin isn't in France, it's another plane that the next cycle will take place in).

Scourge is a legendary tale that thrusts the reader directly into the ravaged lives of the men, women, and children that were savaged by the brutal war between Akroma and Phage. Unfortunately, the action content in this book is limited due to it covering the settling and recuperation of the Otarian characters after their involvement in the Akroma-Phage feud. However, J. Robert King more than makes up for it with his stirring narration of the recovery and coping abilities of Braids, Phage, the Patriarch, and Kamahl. The story becomes immensely interesting as it focuses on the resurfacing of Ixidor the Reality Sculptor, whom emerges victorious over a series of perilous trails and is rewarded with a visitation to the Mirrodin during his trip to France. Overall, a good, interesting book, and a definite must-read for anybody whom has ever enjoyed a Magic novel before.
