Alara Unbroken is a Magic: The Gathering book by Doug Beyer.
In it's pages are the stories of Ajani GoldMane,
Rafiq of the Many,
Sarkhan Vol, and Nicol Bolas.
Althought this book does not contain their entire lives,
it does hold a breath-taking, heart-bursting story of what horrors Nicol Bolas can scheme.
The plane of Alara split into five shards many centuries ago, each shard developing into a distinct world foverne by its primary magical energy--a sunlit Kingdom, a hierarchy of artifice, a realm of the undead, a dragon-scoured hell, and a jungle of paradise. Now, as the planes being to realign and merge once more, an ancient evil seizes the opportunity to gain power from the chaos.
As the shards of Alara erupt into war, the fierce leonin planeswalker Ajani Goldman struggled to bring justice and resolution to his brother's death. Noble champions Rafiq of the Many and Elspeth Tirl search for the source of the chaos that has invaded their once ordered world. And Sarkhan Vol, planeswalker and dragon-shaman, discovered primeval power that may be worthy of his reverence--but deadly to Alara.
