A huge and complex story compressed into a 300-page book. 18. Mai 2009
Von Chip Hunter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As the title implies, INVASION finally chronicles the long-expected attack on Dominaria from the Phyrexians out of Rath. If that sentence doesn't make sense to you, this book probably won't either. To get the full story is no simple matter however. You should start with the anthology Rath and Storm, then go on to the Artifacts Cycle (including: The Brothers' War, Planeswalker , Time Streams, and Bloodlines), followed by the Masquerade Cycle (including: Mercadian Masques, Nemesis, and Prophecy). Finally, if you really want to get the full story, read the prequel The Thran. Then you'll be up to speed with the story so far. Some of those books are good, most are only decent, and a couple of them are down right bad. So you'll have to make up your own mind about whether you're willing to give this story as much time and attention as it demands. I'll tell you that the only reason I have kept with it so long is that I simply can't admit defeat and not finish a story. Also, I am a glutton for punishment :)..

Anyway, INVASION finally tells the story of the Phyrexian attack, which is something we've been anticipating and preparing for over the last bunch of books. With so much build-up priming my appetite for this book, I couldn't help but being somewhat disappointed in the execution. While it is undeniably exciting, with plenty of action, dramatic events, and highly emotional moments, the story just didn't live up to my hopes. The characters behave completely predictably, many parts of the book seemed rushed, and too much of an effort was placed on telling about every part of Dominaria. With a very limited amount of space, King tried to tell a hugely complicated story that involved nearly all of Dominaria and many central characters. The result is a hectic and off-putting reading experience.

That being said, the story is still not complete, with two more books in this trilogy apparently detailing further battles between the armies of Phyrexia and Urza's defenders.

The Invasion Begins 9. April 2007
Von WayneXtreme - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I've literally been jumping around in my cycles of Magic the Gathering and have finally come to the Invasion Cycle. Unfortunately, I've just learned that this story is started in even earlier cycles which bites because most of those books are pretty tricky to come by. Anyway, onto my review.

The story of Invasion tells of the world Dominaria that is being invaded by a "race" of mechanically/genetically altered or genetically engineered to be killing machines. The race is from a world known as Phyrexia that long ago a man went there with a "dream" of ascending he and his people to become even greater beings than they were before (read the prequel, The Thran for the full story). Anyway, the story itself seems to center (from the Heroes side) around a ship known as the Weatherlight and her crew who are steadily fighting and trying to defeat the Phyrexians and save the world of Dominaria and its inhabitants from being destroyed by these "invaders". Now, the crew of the Weatherlight as well as the planeswalker known as Urza must try to bring together the races of Dominaria to be rid of this evil menace once and for all.

This is just a very basic summary of the story itself. I thought that this was a great story, the book itself is pretty much a non-stop war that gets told from both sides, from the Commander of the Weatherlight (Gerrad Capashen) and "the boss" (at this point) of the Phyrexian invasion, Tsabo Tavoc (as well as some point of view from Urza and the forest spirit of Yavimaya, Multani). There's just so much to this story that I'm having a hard time understanding it all. But if you are gonna read this cycle, I think it's best to read The Thran before starting Invasion, because it really helps to fill out some of the story that's told in the Thran.
The Metathran redeem it for me 28. August 2010
Von Jaric Fontaine - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The story jumped perspectives quite often and eventually the nonstop action blurred and the one dimension characters bored me. I didn't really care for the story of the one dimension crew of the weather light. They were boring characters that seemed more like pirates fighting off evil machines. There were some redeeming parts. The Metathran are a magical super soldiers and General Thaddeus' perspective on the war was refreshing and interesting. His fear at losing and pain at losing his twin "brother" and his questioning the reason for fighting the phyrexians added much needed depth to a very shallow book. I was sad when his story ended because he was one of the most interesting characters in all the books. Urza is another classic character. His obsessive quest for revenge was great, the other characters perception of Urza's madness fleshed out his character. It's a shame that these characters didn't get developed more. This book is barely readable, I suggest skipping the Weatherlight crew and Gerrard to make the book less painful to read through.

Awesome Book, Great Start for The Cycle 15. Juni 2002
Von J. D. Cicci - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is an exciting account of the first stages during the Phyrexian Invasion of Dominaria. Chapters are short (only about 4 or 5 pages each) but provide a very accurate description of each event as it happens, step-by-step. It flows at a very fast pace and the action doesn't slow much until after the Llanowar chapters. Even then there's plenty of action to go around. A very exciting battle concludes the book, leaving more questions to be answered by the sequel, Planeshift. Character development is also very well done and you really begin to feel for some of them during the later chapters. Overall I was very pleased by the detail of each event and the pace at which the book moves along. I do recommend, however, that you read Time Streams (also by J. Robert King) because it poses as sort of a prequel to the characters and events in this book. If you didn't read Time Streams, don't worry, the book reviews many of the events and happenings of Time Streams in detail.
Essential for MTG genre fans, very good for all others 25. Juni 2014
Von Y. Galloway - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
First, this is a must read for anyone who's interested in the total magic the gathering genre. I consider Urza's story and this invasion series classical magic lore. I recommend you read the earlier books first if you can, but it's not absolutely recessary.For a set up book book it is pretty good. Although there are some lulls, the action is well spread out. I must admit however the action in some places were a lot more interesting than in others. I found the antangonist, Tsabo Tavoc, and how she thinks very interesting. It may have been nice to experience a little more of this war from her perspctive. My biggest dissappointed was with how some of the major characters died and that their deaths didn't have as big of an introperspective effect on the other characters as I'd hoped. Overall, a very good read.
