This book is by far worse that it`s two predecessors. The first half of this book follows the formula of it`s also sub-par prequel, that is at follows: dioalgue sceen, followed by chase seen, followed by fight sceen, followed again by diolague. And the cycle goes on and on. Then, when that finally gets old (as if it wasn`t already), the author thrusts us 5 years into the future, since that seems to be the only way anyone could write themselves and end to The Longest Chase Ever. Suddenly Memnarch can make billions of constucts... Why didn`t he do that earlier??? There is just one unbelievable (even for fantasy) plot twist after another, and this book just ends up spiraling out of control until it`s all finally over. The connection to the title, The Fifth Dawn, is vague, and it is never clear why 5 days are so important, except do drag on the amount of time we have to wait for what was supposed to be the final showdown... Read this book if you really feel you need to finish the trilogy, but as a fan of the game, I`m bitterly disappointed. We deserve better than this. For the next block, there better be some better story planning, bringing in better writers, and better editing (the spelling errors and grammatical errors they didn`t catch are numerous) In a word-- NO!!!

The first two books were amazing ("The Moons of Mirrodin" and "The Darksteel Eye"). This book blows. I personally feel it was a great disappointment to the first two. I recommend reading the first two though!!!!

I totally agree with the above review. All the stuff that were 'supposed' to be important, the title, 5 days, weren't fully explained in the book. When Glissa's friend gets taken (not spoiling the book) he's gone and then he comes back and doesn't go in depth. The whole book is very random and I've read the ending over and over (memnarch vs glissa) and I still don't get what happens and even if I did, it would still be boring. I think everybody would agree that the author of the first and best book of the mirrodin block, Will McDermott, should have made this book instead of the first. The Moons of Mirrodin had the most excitement, blood, and gore of the whole series (both the second and third book lacked that excitement that it needed). All that blood and gore should be in the fight between Gliss and Memnarch. Instead, the whole fight is a paragraph. Of course, most books like that have an exciting way of the obsticle getting to the final boss but getting there didn't have that much suspence either. However, including all these cons of the story, this book still has very nice moments. One I'm very fond of is what Glissa does to Yert. It is out of nowhere and very awesome.
