Simple Star Wars Book List (Timeline of Star Wars Novels)
More filters. Sort order. Aug 14, Victor rated it it was ok. I didn't. Although I did not read the rest of the Kamigawa books, I find that the story was not very interesting. This is a shame because I thought that the asian elements, the Kami, spirits, etc were very interesting, however, the lack of character development stalls the book considerably.
Toshiro is a good example; he is able to avert every situation and luck favors him so much that we knew he was going to come out of a sit I wish I could say that I enjoyed the book as much as I enjoy the TCG. Toshiro is a good example; he is able to avert every situation and luck favors him so much that we knew he was going to come out of a situation unscathed, and that diminished his value as a character. I iwhs somebody would grab all the interesting details of this novel and made a good consistent book, not a lesser piece of advertising campaign.
Non succede nulla per tre quarti del tempo, poi quando il ritmo comincia ad essere coinvolgente e finalmente i nodi vengono al pettine dopo pagine di build-up, il libro finisce.
Vorrei dire "provaci ancora Scott" ma poi mi rendo conto che ha scritto anche il terzo e anche altri libri e mi sento male, davvero non avevano altri scrittori? May 08, Nathaniel rated it really liked it Shelves: high-fantasy , childhood-books , fantasy , reread Learn something new.
Maybe grow as a person. Mar 04, Scott Johnson rated it liked it Shelves: fantasy , fiction , mtg. A drastic improvement over the last book, though that wasn't a hard bar to clear. There were actually some elements of a plot present from the beginning, and you knew who everyone was and what their motivations were, mostly.
There was something resembling a moral need, in condemning Konda's actions and seeking to undo them. That said, it started off much stronger in these way, but then it plateaued and that made the "climax" quite flat and boring. Mar 05, Iain rated it really liked it Shelves: fantasy. A pleasant read, although not as good as the first book in the series.

Jan 26, Bill rated it did not like it. A friend had been trying to get me to read the "Magic: The Gathering" novelizations for years since I play the game. I'd always resisted, suspecting that the books would Guess what? They do.
My buddy bought me the first two novels in the Kamigawa trilogy. Since I can devour pgs in a sitting, it wasn't huge investment of my time, so I read them. I did NOT purchase the third book. This is supposed to be fantasy on a grand scale. However, the world that the author constructed seem A friend had been trying to get me to read the "Magic: The Gathering" novelizations for years since I play the game.
However, the world that the author constructed seemed as if it could be comfortably contained in about ten square miles. Trite, badly-written garbage. Zero characterization as well. Stay well clear of these books. I know I will in the future. Feb 08, Ernest Junius rated it did not like it Shelves: books-that-took-forever-to-finish , shallow-reads. I didn't expect this to be better than the first one at all.
The Old Republic Era
It's just my habit to finish anything once I started it. But I began to realise what is this book all about. Scott McGough apparently didn't mean to write this as a book, it's more like he wrote this as an advertisement for people to start playing Magic the Gathering card games. I don't blame him. It's just a job. Jan 27, Jason Caldwell rated it really liked it.
I have to disagree with the one star reviewers.
Is it part propaganda? Of course it is, but is it a bad story? It has a great narrative, action heavy, some spicing of humor and intrigue and I couldn't put it down towards the end. Well done, starting on the third one today.
