Product Description

Amazon Review

David Farland's "Runelords" fantasy sequence began in 1998 with The Sum of All Men, a career-relaunch novel whose sales far outstripped earlier SF published under his real name Dave Wolverton. Runelords are supermen whose strength, stamina, vision, etc. are multiplied by magical "endowments" transferred from unfortunate donors who are crippled by their loss: the arch-villain is virtually invincible thanks to tens of thousands of endowments. This second book avoids middle-volume doldrums by introducing a vast onslaught of still tougher and memorably unpleasant non-humans which even the villains must oppose. Meanwhile various characters skirmish in different parts of the map, and the hero struggles with unreliable powers conferred on him when he was chosen as Earth King to save the land and humanity--or maybe only a tiny part of each.

Farland maintains a steady flow of new situations, reversals, gambits and surprises...it's a real shock when one chap who has incurred a dreadful penalty for virtuous reasons is not spared (as expected in the normal chivalry of fantasyland) but pays the full, eye-watering price. One small criticism: the writing contains occasional sloppiness and repetition that a copyeditor should have removed. It's still a rousing, painfully gripping story. --David Langford --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

The Runelords is a first rate tale, an epic fantasy that more than delivers on its promise. Read it soon and treat yourself to an adventure you won't forget. (Terry Brooks)

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as Book 1 17 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I dug the first book in this series out of a pile at the local tip and thoroughly enjoyed it - although it was difficult to understand all the unusual terms at first but it soon drew me in. I went hunting for the second book on Amazon and was surprised to discover that there were at least another 6 or 7 books in the series. The copy I received was nearly like new and an equally good read. I am now looking out for the 3rd book.

4.0 out of 5 stars The story continues... 18 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The second book in the series continues the good work of the first, and while a few of the characters are a little slow in their development still add value and interest to the story.

If you enjoyed the first book then you won't be disappointed by this one. Fingers crossed the 3rd is as good!

By Lucinda
Format:Paperback
Brotherhood of the Wolf is the second installment within the magnificent Runelords series, which exceeds all expectations with its complexity of plot and depth. Exquisite storytelling that is so absorbing and compelling, David Farland puts the `epic' in fantasy with his remarkable and totally original creation. Detailed, realistic and cleverly crafted the scope of world-building is just astonishing as to amaze whilst the character-study is fascinating. This stunning book is a delight to behold and kept me awake for hours reading into the early hours of the morning, not able to tear my gaze away from the pages that had enchanted me. This page-turner is a book that you will find extremely hard to put down, with such profound intensity and electric tension as to have you rooted to the spot!

Wolf Lord against the Earth King: the epic struggle begun in `The sum of all men' continues...

Gaborn has managed to drive off Raj Ahten, but the Wolf Lord is far from defeated. Striking at far-flung cities and fortresses and killing dedicates, Ahten seeks to draw out the Earth King from his seat of power, in order to crush him. But Gaborn is about to discover that his enemy is far from the brutal conqueror he imagined him to be. It seems that Raj Ahten has a very good reason for what he does - indeed, they may well be on the same side.
Still, an alliance seems unlikely and as they weaken each other's forces in battle, the armies of an ancient and implacable enemy issue forth from the very bowels of the Earth.

Just when you think you know the enemy and have grasped the plot, then David Farland incorporates another unexpected twist in the tale that shocks and intrigues you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Running with Runelords 15 Nov 2011
Format:Hardcover
David Farland has achieved that level of excellence that any writer of an ongoing series strives for, that is each volume just gets better & Better. Having not long since read his 8th volume in the Runelord series all I can say is that the 9th is set to run headlong into new depths of Fantasy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brotherhood of the Wolf 1 Mar 2011
By Lisa:)
Format:Paperback
Like these books but its starting to look like it could be a never ending story. The plot hasnt progressed that far and there appears to be 8 or 9 books in the series not sure I will continue with this for that reason alone.
