Story gets confusing at times. It makes sense in the end but otherwise you're left with scratching your head at what was going on. Had I not known this is a story of the MTG universe I would had stopped reading.

Magic The Gathering, The Thran is about a man named Yawgmoth. He was exiled from the Thran Empire but is summoned back when one of the citizens becomes ill and all methods of healing him are ineffective. Yawgmoth has a different form of healing then anyone in the empire. He uses methods we use today, such as stitches and medicines while the empire uses magic to heal all wounds. Yawgmoth uses this to his advantage and gains a lot of control over the city. The people see him as their savior and let him gain more and more control over time. The other civilizations of the planet Dominaria can see that he cannot be trusted and a world war breaks out. This is a great book for someone who likes to escape reality to a new world where the laws are completely different. The city is built in the clouds and is run on a power source made from stones charged by the sun. There are different planets that defy all laws of gravity and physics, strange creatures, and other inhuman civilizations. I have enjoyed all the Magic the Gathering books I have read. All these books tie together too which is also really cool. I have already got the next one.

Good book, but not detailed enough. It falls short of Mr. Kings usual epic performance, but does clear up something, and is a pretty good story.

This is one of the best Magic books I've ever read. It explains how much of the multiverse which exists in more current Magic books was created. It tells of the founding of Phyrexia, the founding of Mount Mercadia, how the original Might-and-Weakstones were created, and much more. I would list more, but I don't want to spoil the story for others. Go buy this book, you'll be glad you did!

J.Robert King is the best writer in the Magic books. this is one of my favorites. The beginning, before Urza. A must have for Magic players.
