Alara Unbroken (Magic The Gathering, book 61) by Doug Beyer

I don’t like looking at backs of people on covers when there’s nothing interesting they’re facing As nefarious forces work to hasten the cataclysmic realignment for their own gain, the populations of once ordered planes struggle to come to terms with a new planar order in which long separated struggles between opposite clash once more; martyrs face executioners, fire and water, earth and air, growth and decay, the innate versus the artificial.

This is only the second MtG novel I’ve read Agents of Artifice is the otherbut in both I found more typos than is typical. News and spoiler contributor for GatheringMagic.
