~KINDLE ♛ Lorwyn (Magic: The Gathering: Lorwyn Cycle, #1) ♫ Welcome To The New World Of Magic The Gathering Elves Live In A World Of Unforgiving Perfection It Is Survival Of The Fittest And None But The Most Beautiful And Deadly Are Allowed To Survive So When An Elf Warrior S Horns Are Shattered And His Flawless Features Lost, He Knows It Is A Death Sentence What He Can T Remember Is How It Happened Or Why He Should Allow Himself To Be Killed Powerful And Ancient Magic Is At Work, And The Elf Will Need To Find Friends Fast Before His Fellow Elves Quiet Him Permanently This book has its ups and downs, and I suppose I should not be surprised considering there were two authors at work here.I happen to really like Cory J Herndon s work, and I also happen to really enjoy a number of works by Scott McGough Having read many but not nearly all, in fact probably less than half of Magic The Gathering novels, you see his name around Magic novels are fun because they immerse you in a myriad of settings, and though I can t say Lorwyn is one of my preferred settings, it was a fun ride I couldn t necessarily recognize who wrote what as I was reading, except for the occasional Herndon flair that is, a subtle dose of humor that I so adore him for As for the setting, eh, not really my first choice, but I figured I d give it a shot since I admired both writers.The result was something that wasn t bad, but I really feel like could ve been done better If you want a quick adventure into a pastoral world told with little detail into the characters or their respective cultures save the stinking elves , then you ll like this I liked it enough to order Book II, though I think I ll read it some other time after another something else. It s been a few months now, since I ve finished this one, and I still find my mind wandering back to its events and locations This was my first foray into Magic The Gathering Novelizations or the writing of Herndon, and it won t be my last. I had such high hopesbut this book was so disjointed It was hard to determine what was going on all the portents and hints at machinations didn t really come together by the end of the novel Also, there is no sense of distance in this world characters get from one place to another in the matter of sentences and the whole tale seems to unravel in the course of a day. This book was okay, but not great There was far too much superfluous description of unnecessary details, and the bigger picture motives, backgrounds, loyalties was left largely unexplained The end left me completely confused The world is imaginative, and the characters interesting, so it did have some good points. If it wasn t for the fact that I am interested in the Magic the Gathering worlds, this book wouldn t be on the top I think the reason why it wasn t very good is probably because I already had a preconceived idea of what the world would be and what the characters would do.Also, I think the characters were not developed very well Probably also because I had an idea of what I think should happen but the second book was definitely better but I am getting ahead of myself here. I got this book when I bought it as part of a set of cards My wife made me read it Before this book, I didn t read many books unless they were instructional This book got me to realize that sometimes reading a book can transport you to another world, and can spark the imagination In that sense, this book does a fine job. A little confusing in the beginning, this book earns it s respect later on A great story, very easy to connect and relate with the characters The characters all have different ways of speaking which is good even though it could have been a littleenhanced It was fun that I could relate to the cards even though it has nothing to do with it. Amazing Way better than I expected. This book is an easy, yet enjoyable read Perfect for me, during schooltime when I m too busy with schoolwork to read serious non fiction books Lorwyn is a great little escape from the daily routine I ve found that reading it right before bed greatly affects me dreamland Finally I get to dream of magical forests with elves and the fae Haha Read it
