BOOK REVIEW

Art of MAGIC: The Gathering  –  Innistrad

Author:  James Wyatt

Book Released:  July 2016

 

Art of MAGIC: The Gathering – Innistrad is the second book in the Art of MAGIC: The Gathering Series, written by award-winning game designer James Wyatt.

This book recounts the history, culture and people of Innistrad, a plane in the Multiverse where humanity lives in constant conflict with creatures and nameless horrors that lurk in the dark. It is a place where vampires and werewolves roam, ghost and ghouls haunt graveyards, and people who dabble with dark arts are fee to practice their craft without fear. The people that are able to live here get their guidance and protection from the angels under the command of archangel Avacyn.

As a person who likes to read fantasy and has no prior experience with the game, by reading this book, I was inspired to know more and experience more Magic: The Gathering.  In every page you turn, stunning artworks and fascinating narratives immerse you further in this dark and terrible world. I felt sympathy for the people who live here and saw their agony, sorrow, desperation and even their hope. I wanted to be a Planeswalker just to be able to see and experience other worlds.  It was MAGIC!

I recommend Art of Magic: The Gathering – Innistrad to everyone weather you already have Magic: The Gathering in your life or someone like me who just likes to have something wonderful to read. I will be looking forward to reading other books under Magic: The Gathering and might try to get my hands on the game.
