|The Gathering Storm|
Publishing[edit | edit source]
In March 2019, it was revealed at the Emerald City Comic-Con (ECCC) that the prequel novel would become available through the website of publisher Del Rey (part of Random House) instead of at Magicthegathering.com. The stories will become available on weekly basis.
Although billed as a prequel novel, readers of War of the Spark noted that some essential details were missing from the story. Because these events (most notably Niv-Mizzet's death) were also taken for granted in the depiction of the cards from War of the Spark, it is quiet possible that The Gathering Storm actually should have been released at the time of the release of Guilds of Ravnica and Ravnica Allegiance.
Story[edit | edit source]
Django’s stories will feature Ral Zarek, Vraska, Kaya, Niv-Mizzet, and Lavinia, and is set during the time period the Gatewatch is away from Ravnica. His stories will feature his new original character Hekara, a cheerful Rakdos emissary. The prequel story will be released in June 2019.
