Anchored by a spark of the Blind Eternities itself that burned within the figure’s soul, a planeswalker strode through the tide, and the maddened chaos between worlds was just another obstacle on a road that few would ever walk. Danger and distaste aside, the figure persevered, continuing ever onward for who knew how long.

Описание: Ari Marmell is no stranger to the fantasy genre, but in his Spectra debut, he strikes out on his own with the wholly original, dark, and exciting novel The Conqueror's Shadow.

He is also a novelist whose published works include Agents of Artifice, a novel based on the Magic: The GatheringTrading Card Game.

Agents of Artifice is the first book in the "A Planeswalker Novel" series. It is written by Ari Marmell. It was published in January 25, 2009. Of all the creatures in the Multiverse, only the planeswalkers know of its limitless expanse.

Agents of Artifice is the first of the new "Planeswalker Novels" in the Magic: The Gathering storyline, written by Ari Marmell

Agents of Artifice is the first of the new "Planeswalker Novels" in the Magic: The Gathering storyline, written by Ari Marmell. While the story takes place in familiar locations such as Ravnica and Kamigawa (as well as the newest plane in MTG, Alara), the characters are all new (except one), and we get a detailed look at the new breed of Planeswalkers introduced in the Time Spiral cycle of books. Plenty of intrigue, action, romance, and of course magic; Agents of Artifice is a great fantasy novel whether you've never read a MTG book before, or if you're a longtime fan such.

It is the dawn of a new age in the Multiverse. The balance of power is shifting and Agents of Artifice brings readers to the heart of a planeswalker struggle...In Agents of Artifice, Ari Marmell reimagines planeswalkers, taking fans deeper than ever into the lives of the Multiverse's most powerful beings: Jace Beleren(TM), the prodigal son, a powerful telepath whose choices now will forever determine his path as a mage; Liliana Vess(TM), a temptress whose beauty belies a dark secret and even darker associations; and Tezzeret(TM), leader of an interplanar consortium whose quest for knowledge may be undone by his lust for power.Follow these characters in their quests for knowledge and power. Will Jace's choices lead him astray of the right path? Will Liliana's past finally catch up with her? Will Tezzeret allow hubris to obscure his vision?

Every character is written exactly the same way in this book, and unfortunately that character is fairly immature and annoying. It would be one thing if the main character, Jace, were actually developing and maturing intentionally through this phase of adolescent, arrogant snottiness, but it is clear that this is the sole persona the author finds interesting, and he proceeds to prescribe it to each character. It seems less and less fitting when applied to the centuries-old witch or to the multi-conglomerate mastermind villain than it does the young developing Mage who leads the plot. Each other character's traits beg for a unique personality, making it quite a shame that they're all reduced to share just one.

The vocabulary and verbal artistry in this book are actually great, and the backdrop of Ravnica and the Magic univse is so interesting. There are certainly moments where that shines, and it allows some unique diversity to the storytelling. Still, the one-dimensional characters anchor the ship, and it's not much of a voyage.

So close, yet so far away.

I agree with a lot of the other reviews in that some of the dialogue is a little childish if not straight up unbelievable, but there were very, very few points where this really took away from the overall story experience. Once in a while I'd reread something a character said, thinking "not only would this character not say this, NOBODY would ever say this in real life." But, frankly, most of the times this happened it was an attempt at comedy (a lot of times a successful attempt, too), not something integral to the storyline-- so it truly didn't bother me.

Overall it's a pretty awesome story and had good action and pacing, and I've read MUCH worse MTG novels, especially in those terms (I'm looking at you, Planeswalker...). A definite step in the right direction, would recommend to most avid fantasy readers and definitely to MTG fans.

I love dark powers of necromancy, especially when said person is really a "good gal/guy." The complexity of character development is deep and I could relate to everyone. It seemed as if there were no static characters.

The Planewalker Novels have brought forth a contemporary ideology of MTG. Excellent read, and this particular novel is my favorite.

This is the second book I bought my 18-year-old grandson to encourage him to love reading. These books are related to a popular card game all the kids play now called 'Magic'. He read the first book in 4 days and asked for this one next. He 'borrowed' my Kindle to read them and I guess I won't be using it myself for a while. (I've been reading my books on my laptop, which is a little bulky when I'm used to the convenient size of my Kindle). He's really enjoying this book, so I recommend it for older teens due to subject matter.

The new Planeswalkers story arc took a little getting used to in the Magic:the Gathering multiverse, but Agents of Artifice is what really made me warm up to Jace as a character, and he's since become one of my favorite characters yet. AoA shows you the dark history of how Jace has come to be the man and truly impressive planeswalker that he is.

This is right up there in quality with my other favorite Planeswalker Novel, Test of Metal (Tezzeret's story), and you should probably buy both titles and read this one first.

I feel this has taken a serious break away from the traditional Magic The Gathering novels from previous editions, but all in all, it illustrates the individual planeswalkers in an exemplary manner. While I would have enjoyed a story that more thoroughly explored Jace's emotional turmoil, I absolutely loved the Nicol Bolas angle. That was superbly done, and beyond reproach. Overall, if you're new to the Magic universe, or just stepping in from the Blind Eternities, this book is a must read for all fans of the game.

Having read a bunchful of "Magic: The Gathering"-novels, I was VERY surprised with this one.

It is well written, with a lot of nice twists and turns. Characters are well described, and the reader is drawn into the different personalities portrayed in this book.

The story is fast-paced, but without being messy. The characters are being defined well - more by actions and interactions, than boring long descriptions. Whether or not you like playing the Magic-TCG, you will enjoy reading this book - as long as you're into fantasy novels (dragonlance, forgotten realms etc.).

Being the ONLY "Magic"-novel which can actually stand by itself, without the cards and fans backing it up (in my opinion), it certainly delivers.

Though this novel (and others) is based on the Magic: the Gathering card game, one does not need knowledge of the game to enjoy the novel. If you like spellcasting, swordfighting, and travel between worlds (plus walking talking rat people and things going boom), then you'll probably like this novel.
