Amid this chaos, Ajani, a fierce leonin planeswalker, struggles to bring justice and resolution to his brother’s death. My banner and avatar was made by DarkNightCavalier.
Book 2 should have been the planes coming together and the battles, wars, changes and exploration. You could even see in the cards in Alara block itself and future cards that some Bantians were starting to take on the traits of the other shards, such as Ethercaste Knight and Zealous Persecutionor altering long-held traditions to adapt to the reforged Alara, such as Bant Sureblade.
Legions Magic The Gathering: A Novel of Magic: I heart Ajani Goldmane. Imagine a world were magical creatures live and not only is magic real its part of your every day life. Now, as the planes begin to realign and merge once more, an ancient evil seizes the opportunity to gain power from the chaos.
Too many plotlines that come together too late to be really effective as a great story, but it does add colours to the cards, which is pretty cool. Philip rated it liked it Feb 14, Open Preview See a Problem?
If you’re not parts of this review may not make sense to you. Long ago, the plane of Alara split into five shards, one for each color of mana.

Alara Unbroken felt a bit disjointed at first, but that made sense given the book’s setting, which is a plane of existence that’s been fractured into five “shards”, with each alata being home to a different type of magical energy.
It’s just a book about Magic flavor.
Nate rated it liked it Mar 30, And Sarkhan Vol, planeswalker and dragon hunter, taps into a power so pure and ancient, it threatens to consume him even as he revels in its unadulterated totality. The characters are all fairly archetypal Ajani the reluctant hero, Rafiq the grizzled veteran who’s too old for this shit, Bolas the scheming Bond villainand the story is fairly straightforward, but Beyer keeps it moving along at enough of a quick, enjoyable pace that you don’t really notice how archetypal everything is until you’re thinking about it afterwards.
Alara Unbroken (Literature) – TV Tropes
Alara Unbroken is the Alara block novel written by Doug Beyer. Read if you want to know how Ajani got his gold manes. The unbrokdn it jumps from story to story is just enough to keep the pages turning, before I knew it I was at the end.

Really enjoyed this book. Good overall, but you get what you pay for with books based on card games.
Quote from Red Havoc. The Gathering ‘s Shards of Alara block. So in that respect the book was a great success. By pitting all five shards against them selves Nichol Bolas can then consantrait all the magic that has been casted to create basically a giant magical bomb.

Kaxa rated it it was amazing Nov 19, And Sarkhan Vol, planeswalker and dragon hunter, taps into a power so pure and ancient, it threatens to consume him even as he revels in its unadulterated totality. I thought the main character of the novel was supposed to be Sarkhan Vol.
If there is a third book, it will likely follow suit.
