The Ravnica Cycle is a trilogy of books set on the plane and city of Ravnica, comprising Ravnica, Guildpact, and Dissension

The Ravnica Cycle is a trilogy of books set on the plane and city of Ravnica, comprising Ravnica, Guildpact, and Dissension. Ravnica has been run by ancient and powerful guilds for ten millennia, and is bustling with life, being filled to the brim with all species, races, classes, and cultures possibly conceivable.

All three books were written by Cory J. Herndon and published by Wizards of the Coast. The Azorius Senate (white/blue, Dissension): The lawmakers of Ravnica, founded by Azor, hence the name Azorius Senate. As the preparations for the celebrations are getting finished, tensions between the guilds have reached the breaking point. The Senate is obsessed with keeping the status quo, no matter the cost.

Dissension: The Ravnica Cycle, Book III. by Cory J. The Rakdos cultists bloody the streets with a viciousness matched only by the Boros angels’ attempts to eradicate them. As it is, the dead outnumber the living. The Guildpact is torn by dissension. And the guildmasters are under attack. In this final expansion set in the city-plane of Ravnica, players will be introduced to the final three guilds of the block: the Azorius Senate (blue-white), the Cult of Rakdos (black-red), and the Simic Combine (green-blue), as well as the secret of the district of Agyrem, the Ghost Quarter.

Reviews about Dissension: Ravnica Cycle, Book III (7):
As a rule, the third books in MTG trilogies tend to be burdened by the responsibility of tying together all the dangling plot points left by the previous two books together as neatly and efficiently as possible. More than once this has led to underwhelming climaxes, such as those in the Apocalypse and Scourge books. Dissension unfortunately continues this tradition, being forced, much like 2007's Spider-Man 3, to shove two climatic battles together towards the book's end. But for all the underwhelming climax, this book's superb characterization save it. The protagonist Agrus Kos, forced once again into a new allegiance to justify his presence, is serviceable as a hard-boiled cop archetype, but the real stars are the supporting characters. Jarad and Fonn are wonderful as guild leaders turned parents, Rakdos and Momir Vig are a joy to read (and if Herndon had gone the way of Vance Moore and made the entire third arc Vig-centric, I would not have complained), and the original character, Myc Zunich, feels in many ways like the true protagonist of the narrative, as opposed to Agrus Kos's weathered old hero. This novel holds the distinction of being the last MTG novel I ever read, as I've since retired from the game (hard to believe it's been seven years already), and as a coda to the stories and characters I grew up with, it carries its weight.
If you enjoy Magic this book will give you some flavor to the characters and game to help in the enjoyment of playing.

Dissension was a fabulous book that wrapped up the series nicely while creating a new and engaging tale fitting all of our favorite characters.

This book successfully incorporates the previously separate storylines of the first and second books and weaves a tale in which our characters must work hard and try new things. I loved how the author threw twists and turns though there were a few times (e.g. with the guardians) where I wish they had explained more about the aftermath of them. I understand this may be asking for too much but while I got closure from the characters I felt there was more about the world of Ravnica that I was still curious about and had wanted more answers for.

Overall though, Cory Herndon is successful in his conclusion to the Ravnica block, with wonderful and complex new characters and environments. By far, this was the best book in the Ravnica Cycle.
The Ravnica series and world has to be one of my top faves in the Mtg line up.. The last book was good, but I hate how there is a empty, unexplained gap between this series and the newer one. So many awesome characters were just brushed aside for Jace's story and the other planeswalkers. I would post more, but well spoilers, but not a bad read in the end.
Excellent. Herndon is just a much more experienced (talented?) writer than some of the other authors that write the Magic series.
This was a good story that built off the previous 2 books but it did jump around a bit that made me had to go back and reread certain parts.
Not my favorite MTG novel, not the worst though. As usual with the Ravnica stories, there is a severe lack of lore and world-building. It could have been so much more... magical, especially in an interesting setting like Ravnica. Oh well.
