This was not what I was expecting. I was hoping for powerful planeswalkers traveling to contain the Eldrazi threat. I was hoping for some cool spell battles, a couple of decent fights, some history and character exploration.

This was not what I got. I got 3 people walking to their destination. There conversations are cryptic and we vaguely learn a bit about Nissa`s past, but not much. Sorin is just along for the ride, we learn nothing about him. We know he is a planeswalker, but him and Nissa don

As a disclaimer, I have been searching for a book about Tibalt the Fiend-Blooded. Almost desperately. This desperation caused me to make the seemingly obvious assumption that a book with Sorin Markov would also include a mention of Tibalt in some form or another. However, once Sorin was placed in a forest, traveling with an elf and another vampire, I knew I would be sorely let down. And I was.

Others have said this, yet I will repeat it: there is a lot of walking. The plot had potential and it wa

This book was god awful. Let's just ignore for a moment the fact that it's rife with grammatical and spelling errors (even the main character's NAME is misspelled at least once).

Let's forget that the only adjective Wintermute seems to know to describe Sorin Markov's voice is "booming."

Sorin Markov is supposed to be a BADASS. He's basically the oldest planeswalker, short of Nicol !@#$ing Bolas, but you would never, ever know that he is powerful for reading this book. First, he's stuck playing sec

Oh my god this book was awful
Jun 20, 2012 Robert rated it did not like it
The book was mildly entertaining but only because of its subject matter and was tolerable because of the Eldrazi's inherent cool factor. The beginning was fast paced and captivated my attention with the introduction of The Brood. After the initial burst of excitement the book took on a very uniform structure of traveling-battle. Some of the descriptions were successful, but after a few chapters it began to feel like the characters were just going through the motions. The characters were flat, cl ...more

BLAH! The only reason why I read this was because I wanted to learn more about Sorin Markov, and dang it, the book barely talks about his history! Is there a book ABOUT Sorin Markov, who he is, and so on? I mean, oh wait


They don’t even stop the bad guys! It ends on a cliffhanger. And what are the bad guys? Tentacle monsters. Come on, couldn’t you come up with something more original?

No, I did not enjoy this book. Besides, for a tough guy, Sorin sure did get his butt kicked a lot in

I was a little disappointed in this book. I hadn't played much of the Zendikar set so I was really relying on the book to fill me in on the storyline. But the book just kind of built up and then ended. Much more interested in Sorin now and I feel my dislike of Nissa is vindicated.

I WANTED to like this book. I tried so hard. And while it was not the worst book ever by a long shot it certainly fell short. There are hands down much better mtg books out there. Unfortunately if you want to read anything regarding Zendikar this is your only option.

The novel begins well but the resolution is horrible.The elf is unbelievably stupid.The first three quarters of the book is good though.
Too much walking around not getting things done.
