Artifacts Cycle
The Brothers' War
May 1998 - Jeff Grubb

Dominarian legends speak of a mighty conflict, obscured by the mists of history. Of a conflict between the brothers Urza and Mishra for supremacy on the continent of Terisiare. Of titanic engines that scarred and twisted the very planet. Of a final battle that sank continents and shook the skies. The saga of the Brothers' War.
September 1998 - Lynn Abbey

The Brothers' War is over, and Urza alone survives. Yet victory has come at the cost of his sanity. Shattered, he wanders the planes. Urza has also become the wielder of tremendous power. Now he seeks the forces that corrupted his brother. When he finds them, they will know the vengeance of a Planeswalker.
Time Streams
May 1999 - J. Robert King

Urza Planeswalker has enlisted the most brilliant minds from across Dominaria to study at his academy on Tolaria. Together they work to bring to life the greatest artifact weapon Urza has ever devised, hoping to use it to defend their home from an imminent Phyrexian invasion. But treachery and tragedy stalk the tiny island, as Urza and his followers seek to manipulate time itself.
August 1999 - Loren Coleman

Time is getting short as Tolaria races to find the one who will wield the power of the Legacy. Deep in the inner circle, the dark lord Yawgmoth sends out an edict: Kill Urza Planeswalker.
From the bloodlines of the Benalish plains, a hero is born.

Masquerade/Weatherlight Cycle
Rath and Storm
July 1998 - Phillip Athans, Hannovi Braddock, Jennifer Clarke Wilkes, Liz Holliday, Miranda Horner, Kij Johnson, J. Robert King, Francis Lebaron, and Mike Ryan (edited by Peter Archer)

Gerrard's Legacy A collection of powerful magical artifacts is the only defense against the forces of evil that are arrayed against Dominaria. Gerrard, the heir to the Legacy, together with Sisay, captain of the flying ship Weatherlight has sought out many parts of the Legacy.
Gerrard's Quest Sisay has been kidnapped by Volrath, ruler of the plane of Rath. Gerrard stands at a crossroads. His companion is in danger, the Legacy may be lost forever. Only he—with the loyal crew of the Weatherlight—can rescue Sisay and recover the Legacy.
Mercadian Masques
September 1999 - Francis Lebaron

Treachery stalks the Weatherlight

Escaping from Rath, the crew of the flying ship Weatherlight finds itself adrift. Grieving for their lost comrades and in need of repairs, they make their painful way to Mercadia, a city where everything is for sale.
But not everything is as it seems. In the streets of Mercadia, the heroes of the Weatherlight find that more than merchandise can be bought and sold.
February 2000 - Paul B. Thompson

A new threat looms on the horizon.

The long awaited completion of Rath is approaching. The Dark Lord's plans to invade Dominaria will soon see fruition. Only the struggle for power in this artificial plane remains. Urza Planeswalker will not stop the Phyrexian empire.
Witness the creation of his nemesis.
July 2000 - Vance Moore

This novel takes readers to where the Keldons have landed. The Jamuraan League of City-States has put together a rag-tag defense and enlisted the help of the planeswalker, Teferi. But even a planeswalker cannot hold back the might of Keld by himself.

Ice Age Cycle
The Gathering Dark
June 1999 - Jeff Grubb

After the war comes the darkness.

Terisiare lies in ruins. Nations have fallen, goblins raid the land, and an oppressive faith throttles the city-states. Now deep within the walls of the Conclave of Mages, Jodah must decide if unlocking his own immense power is worth taking a step into the dark lands.
The epic of the Ice Age begins.
The Eternal Ice
May 2000 - Jeff Grubb

After the darkness comes the ice.

Thousands of years after the explosion at Argoth ended the Brothers' War, ice has covered the world of Dominaria. The strong have turned to barbarism. The weak have died. Now Lim-Dûl, a necromancer with a taste for power, seeks to awaken a deeper evil.
The Shattered Alliance
December 2000 - Jeff Grubb

After the ice comes peril.

The Ice Age has come to an abrupt end, but the world's troubles have not. Legions of undead still plague the living. The temporary peace in Kjeldor has come to an end, and an evil far more treacherous than Lim-Dûl has been unleashed upon the land.
The ice age is gone, but the evil remains.

Invasion Cycle
The Thran
December 1999 - J. Robert King

Before the Brothers' War.
Before the five colors of magic.

Before history itself, the plane of Dominaria was ruled by the Thran. They built machines and artifacts, the likes of which have never since been seen. But amid the civilization, a shadow took root, one that would stretch its arms across space and time.

The hideous evil of Phyrexia was born.
October 2000 - J. Robert King

The Phyrexian nightmare begins.

Dominaria faces its biggest threat—an invasion by its greatest enemy, an attack planned for eons by merciless foes. No one is exempt from their terror. No land is safe from their onslaught. In the shadow of the Phyrexian horde, Dominaria has but one hope—the Weatherlight and her crew. The time has come to defend hearth and home from invasion.
February 2001 - J. Robert King

The first wave is over, but the invasion rages on.

In the midst of all-out war, the ground shifts and moves. Millions upon millions of invaders appear out of nowhere as the aritifical plane of Rath overlays Dominaria, covering the natural landscape with the unnatural horrors of Phyrexia.
There is no rest for the wicked.
June 2001 - J. Robert King

The end is near!

Phyrexian plagues and shock troops have taken their toll. The final stage of the invasion has begun, and the dark lord Yawgmoth himself plans to cross over into Dominaria to claim his prize. With time running out, the battered heroes' last hope to save their home lies in an ancient, untested weapon—a collection of artifacts known as the Legacy.
Bear witness to the apocalypse.

Odyssey Cycle
September 2001 - Vance Moore

A world begins anew . . .
A hundred years has passed since the invasion. Dominaria is still in ruins.
Only the strongest manage to survive in this brutal post-apocalyptic world. Experience the glory and agony of champion pit fighters as they enter the arena to do combat for treasure.
Chainer's Torment
January 2002 - Scott McGough

Something horrible lurks in Cabal City.
In the pit-fighting arenas, a Cabal dementia caster enters a trance. Deep in the recesses of his mind stalk horrors and unimaginable nightmares, and no longer do those monstrosities wait until dark to come out.
May 2002 - Will McDermott

The time has come.
Every powerful wizard and fighter on the continent of Otaria wants one thing: power. One artifact can give them—undeniably—that which they seek, and nothing will stop them from possessing it.
But in the end, only one can have it, and his actions will determine the fate of the world.
The day of judgment has arrived.

Onslaught Cycle
September 2002 - J. Robert King

The Land Is In Upheaval.
The forest grows out of control. The mountains erupt. The seas boil. The swamps spew acid, and the plains turn to desert. Yet, admist the turmoil there is civilization, brutal and unforgiving. Pit fighters battle to the death before tremendous crowds, making some rich, while others lose everything in one stroke of a sword.
The games must continue. So must the struggle for survival.
January 2003 - J. Robert King

In Titanic Battle, The World Stands Divided.
On one side stand the followers of Phage, who cry out for new arena combats, new champions, new blood spilled in the sand. On the other are the supporters of Akroma, the angel, who preaches a terrifying religion hallowing her creator.
In the middle stands the lonely figure of Kamahl. Once a champion of the pits, he must now atone for the terrible wrongs he has wrought. Those wrons gave birth to Phage and Akroma. They gave birth to the suffering of the world.
Now Kamahl must sweep the land clean of this terrible blight. But his fury may destroy that which he most loves.
May 2003 - J. Robert King

The Battle Rages On!
Amid the titanic clash between Phage and Akroma, all Dominaria shuddered. Now, out of the destruction and chaos a new force arises, and Kamahl must face his greatest foe: Karona. Her arms spread to the very clouds, and her robes trail like rays of sunlight.
She is the destroyer.
She is the answer.

Mirrodin Cycle
The Moons of Mirrodin
September 2003 - Will McDermott

A World Beyond Imagination
Where forests of metal claw the sky.
Where razor-sharp metallic grasses stretch across the plains.
Where vast oceans of quicksilver conceal predators awaiting the unwary.
Across this harsh landscape, an orphaned elf must make her way, seeking the secrets of her past, daring the perils of her present. And she must tear aside the veil that hides the face of a hidden enemy whose power extends across all Mirrodin.
The Darksteel Eye
December 2003 - Jess Lebow

A Prize Beyond Understanding
A goblin tinkerer with a strangely heroic spirit.
An iron golem searching for his lost memories.
An elf who carries with her knowledge that could shake the world.
Together, they must flee across the harsh metal world of Mirrodin, running from an enemy who seems all-knowing and anticipates their every move. Amid savage battles and breathtaking escapes, they are ever aware of a power that stands at the very center of their world. For within the deepest reaches of Mirrodin, the Darksteel Eye watches. And waits.
The Fifth Dawn
May 2004 - Cory Herndon

An Enemy Beyond Evil
Whose eye sees into every corner of Mirrodin.
Whose ambition strides across the planes.
Whose foe is a lonely elf and her loyal goblin companion.
The fury of Memnarch is turned against Glissa and Slobad as they make their way across Mirrodin in search of new allies. From the city of the leonin to the dark fortress Panopticon, their travels range until they come face to face with the creator of Mirrodin himself.
