5.0 out of 5 stars Great book Sept. 28 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed this book alot it set everything up very well for the final confrentation between Laquatus and Kamhal, and how the Order and the Cabal interact with each other, and dealing with the power of the Mirari. Good wrap up book that made you wonder what could happen in Onslaught.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as interesting as Chainer's Torment Sept. 21 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The book gives and ending to the Odyssey Cycle. It does its job dutifully, and brings the whole story to full circle. However, it doesn't impress me particularly with the story nor the writing. This is not to say that it is bad, but it is not excellent either (hence the 3 stars). The ending is again kind of sloopy (like Chainer's Torment), and doesn't really explain what happens next for Kahmahl or Jeska. I guess it will have to continue in Onslaught.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, Some Flaws July 28 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When reading this book your attentiveness to it will weaver a lot. Like most Magic books,many events are happening at once, and unfortunantly there all not that interesting. And in many of the events that do occur, their constant aperance or relevence to each other make the story seem repetitve. Plus the author doesn't seem to hold true to rules he sets for his characters. By "rules" I mean personality and phisical abilites. One moment a character will have no trouble takeing out an oppenent and the next he'll be nearly killed when taking on someone who is supposed to be "weaker." Enough with all these negitive comments, you would think I would give this only 1 star. This book, through all of its troubles does have some good features. The sudden character changes will surprise you and the plot twists will have you on the edge of your seat. The descriptions are of nothing short of excelence. The greatest aspect of this book though is that you don't have to read the first two books ahead of this one. As Judgment's storyline progress it explains everything that has happened in the cycle and I mean everything. Overall this book is a great conclustion to the cycle and once again leaves you with the question "Whats next?".

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book Sept. 8 2004
By The Association - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was a good read and a good conclusion to the Odyssey Block.

The book picks up right where Torment left off - Chainer is dead and Cabal City is in ruins. Kamahl has finally come to wield the Mirari, however his designs for it are not necesarily good ones. He disguises his designs for power by deluding himself into believing that he is the one to unite his people, since he wields the Mirari. As the book progresses however, it becomes clear that Kamahl has been driven practically insane by the power of the artifact and his desire for control. Will he return to his senses? You will have to read to find out! Meanwhile, Laquatus, foiled again by Empress Llawan in his attempts to get the Mirari for his own personal benefit, remains stuck in his portal prison. That is, until one day, when he discovers one of the infamous sub-continent tunnels which leads to his escape. With Laquatus up to his old tricks again, the continent is once again in for a vicious cycle of lies, false alliances and deception.

While the book is good and the plot intriguing, it does have its dull and confusing moments. Therefore, I have to rate it only four stars. However this was an excellent conclusion to the Odyssey Block and, as always, leaves us wondering, "What next?"

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Finish Oct. 22 2010
By Kendra Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Way back in the days of the Odyssey block (hard to believe it's been so long) I got this book in a fat pack I'd bought. The cards were alright, I still use the spindown counter frequently, and I read through the player's guide dreaming I'd one day have some of the cards listed in it. But what pulled me in was this book. It was the first Magic book I'd ever read and I'd picked it up more as a way of killing time when I had to go to my brother's little league games.

After the first chapter or two though, I simply could not put the book down. I still think it's one of the better Magic books I've read. I later got Chainer's Torment in the hopes that it might clear up some of the confusion I had by coming into the book so late, but I found that book to be a disappointment. McDermott offers plenty of wit in his characters and makes them work well with one another and weaves a good tale. This was my first and still is probably my favorite Magic book I've read to date, the other being Moons of Mirrodin, which also just happened to be written by McDermott as well. It's a pity that, as far as I can tell, he's only written two books for the Magic series.

It's been so long that I just barely remember the details, but needless to say it's one of the few books that I had which I wore out so much by reading it as much as I did.

If you're a Magic fan, particularly of the books, I'd recommend giving this book a shot.

Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not to give away too much we see that Khamal's journey is only starting, we see the Conclusion of the cephalid merfolk civil war, the first strengthening his power base at Aphetto after his banishment there by chainer, and the change of leadership in the order. Also describes the creation of the Onslaught blocks main villain character, Phage.
