A great book for the fans!
24 de maio de 2019
A very enjoyable read for those wanting to know more about the war and to see their beloved characters interacting beyond the small flavor texts of the cards. Weisman does a good job of describing the events through multiple different lenses, and the new characters Teyo and Rat are well developed and have a nice dynamic together.
Despite already knowing most of the twists and the ending of the story thanks to the cards, I still found great joy in reading this and in seeing all the small interactions between the cast. There could be less repetition and exposition, sure, but that was to be expected since the book drops the reader in the middle of something that, without prior knowledge of Magic lore, would certainly make them dizzy with how much stuff is going on and how much names and concepts there is to learn (which is basically how Teyo feels when he arrives on Ravnica, so his POV is great for newcomers to get their bearings). It didn't bother me too much and the pacing was fine as a whole.
There's also some very, very sweet moments between couples in the story, and overall I just wish Vraska had (even more) chapters because damn, she's my favorite and I just loved the way Weisman wrote her inner thoughts. Kaya was also quite fleshed out here, which is great since she hadn't had much screen time in comics, short stories and stuff before.
I pre-ordered Forsaken as soon as I finished Ravnica and I can't wait to see what happens next! Definitely recommend the book for the fans and it could also be a good starting point for newcomers (though possibly a bit overwhelming).
