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?"
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.
