One guild ravages the streets. Teysa leads another to "cleanse" them. And Agrus Kos doesn't give a damn.

An exciting tale of adventure and action. I liked Cory Herndon's style of writing, the way each character is described by the author, and the setting described. The way the setting is described is had to relate to anywhere that you would find on earth but the use of imagery helps you visualize the way it affects the characters and the conflict. The Utvara Wasteland is described as a treacherous unexplored land that is occupied by tribes of humans and humanoids known as the Gruul clans. The Gruul ...more

Overall, I think this was pretty pedestrian. If you care to follow along with the "Magic: The Gathering" world known as Ravnica, this is solid. If you're coming to the scene from outside MTG, then I can't see why you'd care.

This story takes place many years after the first book in the Cycle, with a significant number of new characters and locations. Reading the first book first adds some context to what's going on, but not a whole lot. It's certainly not a requirement.

The book's largest problem

Another solid MTG book, but I think, not as good as the previous book.

The book proceeds after the events in the first. Kos is no longer a Wojek but a guard for Pivlic. However, the book takes place in a little area known as Utvara. Teysa Karlov is made the baroness of this by the leader of the Orzhov and is now in charge of cleansing it from the plague that ravishes the land. And of course, Kos manages to find his way there and get involved in the problems they've got.

This book just isn't as act

Guildpact was a fun albeit somewhat disappointing read. I was primarily disappointed by the characters for whom I had a harder time becoming vested in. With that said, some old familiars appear throughout this book and I am very glad that I read to the end for some welcome surprises.

Guildpact focuses it's storyline on Utvara, an desolate area of Ravnica outside of the city. They don't make the relationship between the city and this area as clear I would have liked, but it was enough to get you t
Don't be fooled by the title of the book. Guildpact is name of the 2nd expansion set of the Ravnica block (Magic: the Gathering card game) and really has nothing to do with the story. It is actually a continuation of the plot from book 1 and is told from the perspectives of Kos (book 1 protagonist), Teysa (a young noble), and an intelligent goblin. It does highlight the special traits associated with the cards of the 3 guilds that were released as part of the expansion set.

I liked this story although it did have some parts that tended to drag and some parts needed a bit more detail. The characters were easy to follow on how they thought or on their personalities. There were some parts of the story that were a little hard to keep my attention, but all in all, it turned out to be an entertaining read for me.

Recommends it for: Fantasy lovers who've read the first book in the series
A twisted tale that follows several plot-lines across a fifty-year period and culminates with an explosive battle that literally shatters the sky.

Excellent story and loved the return of Kos. Plus I spent six dollars on Teysa and find myself amused to see her on the cover. =)

Again, as in the previous one, I felt the ending part kind of rushed and in finished. I was also expecting Niv-Mizzet to make the great appearance that never happened.

The continuation of the first book, it becomes even more engrossing and intense, hands down a great sequal to an already awesome book.

literatura para adolescentes, tiene varios typos y de pronto se siente una falta de concordancia entre lo leído y los personajes. Fuera de ello tiene mucha acción y parece que se lee un comic.
