Product Description


Despite the state of turmoil in the world--with the forest growing out of control, the mountains erupting, the seas boiling, and the plains turning to desert--human civilization finds some relief in the brutal spectacle of the pit fights in which warriors battle to the death before huge crowds.

More of the same 5 Jun. 2009
By Travis - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you liked J. Robert King's Invasion Cycle, this is about status quo. Lots of annoying fourth wall breaking, lots of INCREDIBLY melodramatic prose that doesn't fit the setting, lots of choreographed violence. It's not as bad as the books that follow it, but it's not going to be winning any Locus or Nebula awards any time soon. This is the best of the Onslaught Cycle, but that's not really saying much. If you want thoughtless fight scenes and escapism that doesn't require a lot of thought, go with this book. If you need something a little more solid or thought-provoking, seek ye elsewhere.

Awesome book... but too many spelling errors. 15 Feb. 2004
By Adam Spalding - Published on
Format: Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed the tale and have started reading the second in this trilogy. The book was very well written and had a decent flow at the beginning which transformed into an excellent flow in it's conclusion. The author did a good job in making you care about the main characters' conflicts and left you wanting to read onward. The last 8 or so chapters really made this book shine. I whole-heartedly recommend this book. The only draw back was the spelling errors. You would think that someone who could use "quintessential" in coherent sentences would be able to spell "unphased" and "reigning" correctly. Not to mention the other smaller errors such as words being put in past-tense/plural-form incorrectly or the lack of past-tense/pluralization. Those tiny errors are understandable in the rough draft but how did those slip by editing? Who allowed this to be published with those? Never-the-less, a superb read.

One of the best Magic novels... 14 Oct. 2002
By Mitch - Published on
Format: Paperback
As far as Magic novels go, I think this is one of the best. I just started, and I already find myself engrossed. Ixidor, by far, is the most interesting character and very easy to get drawn into. Kamahl is...strange. However, he seems to have a purpose. The pit fights are well described, along with every other aspect so far. I hope to see something of Silvos, Rorix, Visara, Arcanis and Jareth! If not, oh well. Braids is interesting, especially because I have her card.

eh, dont have a title. 25 May 2004
By connie - Published on
Format: Paperback
ah crap, i'd completely forgotten that Onslaught was my first magic book and stated Mirrodin was my first instead! not that any of you care, its just bothering me that i put that false info out there.
i also read this book several months ago, so my memory of it isnt that fresh.
anyway so there i was a bright young magic player curious about the stories in the cards i enjoyed so much. and.. i chose onslaught. why? because i wanted to read about Akroma. if you see her on the cards, she's this beautiful, strong, white-garbed, bejeweled angel that radiates .. um, something. and if you play the game and look at her card, its a bit crazy all the abilities they give her and such. im iffy about this book but i give it 4 stars because it wasnt that bad. its just that, i loathe reading about the main character, and i dislike its view of akroma. which is of course, unfair because i already created in my mind my own view of her.
however, kamahl returns in this book and if you read the odyssey cycle that may please you. so do a few other enjoyable characters. oh, it might depress you if you're fond of green (the forest) but then again, it seems a lot of magic books are like that.

Good sequal cycle from Odyssey 24 Sept. 2002
By Ben - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book continues the story of Kamhal who is now dealing with being a druid and protecting nature while also trying to aid his sister Jeska who has been transformed by The Cabal First into Phage a being like the First who cna kill with a touch, also add to the mix Ixidor an illusionist who now can shape reality and wants to kill Phage for killing his true love. Very enjoyable a little confusing but it keeps you interested in whats going to happen.
