Honestly, this book turned out to be much better than I was expecting. I picked it out of a free book bin and decided to give it a chance in spite of a few faults which in another circumstance would have turned me off a book of this kind. These particular irks are the fact that it's part of a overly commercial franchise (Magic: the Gathering) and that it's the second tome in a trilogy I hadn't read at the time.

Taking place at the same time as Mercadian Masques, NEMESIS chronicles the events on Rath after the Weatherlight escapes.

This actually SOUNDS fairly awesom

My friends and I have a soft spot for Ertai after reading about him in the Rath and Storm. The way Paul tied this story together for him had me practically in tears before I was done. It all made sense, but argh why did it have to happen?

Hopefully the above doesn't seem too spoilery, rather, I would hope it entices anybody reading this to give the book a good read. Crovax is likewise handled quite well in his relation to Greven, Volrath and Ertai. How they all play out with Belbe at the head of

A gloriously dark read full of devastating action. The story rests well on its own and positively glows with the storyline of my favorite card game. Excellent book. =)
