To magic players ,who have not read the books, the names urza and mishra are known from several cards that have their inventions(ornithopter,void)or from the newly printed mishra card.They are known at least to be master artificers , and creators of mighty warmachines.This book however is the story of their war and it is worth time you would give to read it.
The book starts with the two being shipped to a Tocasias camp by their father.There they excavate thran relics , machines built by the long lost thran race.They both grow up to become master artificers and recreate several thran machines , but the unfortunate discovery of a mighty power stone leads to them becomung enemies for the rest of their lives.Urza eventually marries a princess (not for love ,but for a thran book that has been offered as dowry)and Mishra rose from slave to qadir of the desert people.As their two people fight they built more and more machines to fight in it and eventually engulf all of their continent.I won't spoil the rest of the book for you ,but i will merely say a few things about the lead characters:
Tawnos :the assistant to Urza and a great artificer himself ,unlucky enough to fall in love with ashdod from Mishras camp.Creator of many warmachines,in the end he works to find a way out of the war.
Ashdod:she trully won the name uncaring, and her cruelty was legendary.
The creation of her transmogrants is indicative of her disregard for human life.Read more ›
But The Brothers' War is a great book! If you've ever been intrigued by the flavour text, most notably on older cards, this book will flesh out the story as an epic conflict of years. It's great to finaly get an idea of the plot and characters behind the game.
It kept me riveted the whole way through. I started reading at 10 last night, and continued till 2 this morning. Then returned home from uni at 1 the next day, and read right through to the end!
And if you know nothing of the game, this book is still a marvellous epic, charting the rise and fall of the relationship of two powerful brothers.
I can't wait to read the rest of the series. Thoroughly reccommended!
