The Wyrmling Horde is set immediately after Worldbinder. Fallion has been captured, Jaz is dead and hope is fading fast. Initially I was disappointed with the book, and it bears many of the flaws that Farland's later Runelord books share - very scant description, sketchy characterisation, reliance on long established characters and a vague feeling the author is going through the motions. Anyone who has read the last 9 books Raymond E Feist has written will know what I mean. I was particularly disappointed by the visit to the netherworld - a veritable deadly paradise it may be, and words may indeed be insufficient to describe such a place to mere mortals - but heck, couldn't the author have at least tried? Apart from saying that the bees have nasty stings and the hailstones are bigger?

The overall tone is also one of a mid volume novel in a trilogy - characters shuffle around, forces move and alliances are forged in preparation for a concluding chapter. There are times when the whole thing resembles a Runelord shopping expedition as more and more endowments are sought and granted.

So, why more than 2 stars? Firstly, it reads at an excellent pace, helped by the sparse prose. Secondly, in the last quarter the assault on Rugassa actually takes place - I was expecting this in the next book. And there are some significant developments at the end.

I would fully agree with another reviewer that this is not a good a starting point for the Runelord saga. It is after all book 7 in a lengthy series. It is however
a workmanlike continuation of a patchy but occasionally excellent series. I just really, really hope Farland will take his time over subsequent volumes.

This is book 7 in a series and continues on immediately after World Binder. It may be an obvious statement but this is not a good place to start the Runelord series, partly because it is book 7 but mostly because this story relies heavily on the characters and locations presented in the previous 6 books. Without the familiarity of the characters, locations, allegiances, magic systems and in many cases family connections I think perhaps the new reader could find himself/herself a little bemused.

Much of this book is concerned with shuffling the characters, and various allies / enemies from place to place. This is quite probably a necessary book in the sequence and so perhaps lacks some of the magical qualities of the previous books, but does (I hope) set up the next book in the series to be a fantastic scintelating continuation, reminiscent of the previously well written, memorable, books in this series.

I can't wait for the next one !

Whilst a fan of David's Runelord series what got to me about this novel was that it seemed to be more of a filler than a tale of any real importance to the overall arc. Don't get me wrong it is well written and the new characters intriguing but when you're so far into a series to date and there's no real relevance to the current series you have to wonder why it was released. With luck later novels will pick up on this and allow it to have a relevance that will increase the world in a new dimension. However I won't be recommending this to a number of readers, firstly the new and secondly to those on a budget as the others make a more cohesive offering that this one really doesn't add to.

think i missed all the characters from the 1st series so that may have affected my enjoyment of the second series. this time i have bonded with them and would say almost..... as good. how can a group of friends endure so much pain? will humankind be wiped out? better get started on the next book.
