Guilds of Ravnica review: Dimir

House Dimir, the secret guild of counter-intelligence, espionage, and assassination is the next guild I’ll review. A long standing member of The Guildpact members of the House Dimir have had their hand in nearly every major event that has happened on Ravnica, and are a central point to the current story as we return this fall to Guilds of Ravnica.

This proves to be the penultimate book in the series and Sanderson uses almost 1300 pages to wrap up a number of storylines before Tarmon Gai’don and bring others to the forefront.

Egwene also plays a large roll, but the two other ta’veren and their stories need to get them to where they need to be and with whom quickly, because both
