Editorial Reviews

Review

"Stark, dark, and elegiac. . . . Farland ponders the fuzzy line between honor and obsession in a world where compassion comes with a high price. . . . Complex machinations soaked in mud and blood." --Publishers Weekly on Chaosbound

"David Farland has written a series that rivals the best of Terry Brooks, Terry Goodkind and Orson Scott Card." --SF Revu on Worldbinder

"The suspense is real, the action is nonstop, and the characterizations continue to convince. . . . [this is] a series that has put Farland on high-fantasy readers' maps." --Booklist on The Lair of Bones

"Fans of Robert Jordan and Terry Goodkind will enjoy Farland's Runelords." --Romantic Times Book Reviews on The Lair of Bones

"The author's imaginative approach to magic, coupled with a richly detailed fantasy world and a cast of memorable heroes and villains, adds depth and variety to this epic tale of war and valor." --Library Journal on Wizardborn

"Sure, Brotherhood has incredible edge-of-your-seat, nail-biting battle scenes--the finale being an exceptional example--but Gaborn's struggle to make a decision, and then facing the consequences, is equally thrilling." --Starlog on The Brotherhood of the Wolf

"When I reached the end of this first volume, The Runelords, and saw grace arise from a devastating battlefield where too many great hearts lay dead, Farland had earned the tears that came to my eyes. It was not sentiment but epiphany." --Orson Scott Card, author of Ender in Exile

"Farland has created a vivid, detailed, different world that becomes perfectly believable." --David Drake, author of The Legions of Fire

"David Farland's Runelords books are among the best fantasies on the market today. Great characters, a fascinating concept, and some really nasty monsters make each novel a pleasure to read." --Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of The Winds of Dune

About the Author

David Farland (1957-2022) was the New York Times bestselling author of the Runelords fantasy series including Chaosbound, The Wyrmling Horde and Worldbinder.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

David Farland is an award-winning, international best-selling author with over 60 novels in print. He has won the Phillip K. Dick Memorial Special Award for "Best Novel in the English Language", the Whitney award for "Best Novel of the Year" and the Hollywood Book Festival, Grand Prize. He is best known, however, for his New York Times best-selling fantasy series The Runelords, which will soon be made into a graphic novel and, likely, a movie.

Farland has written for major franchises such as Star Wars and The Mummy. In the video game industry, he has been both a designer and scripter and was a leader on the design team for StarCraft: Brood War.

As a writing instructor, Farland has mentored dozens who have gone on to staggering literary success, including such #1 New York Times Bestsellers as Brandon Mull (Fablehaven), Brandon Sanderson (Wheel of Time), James Dashner (The Maze Runner) and Stephanie Meyer (Twilight)

Farland judges L. Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future, perhaps the largest worldwide writing competition for new fantasy and science fiction authors. He has worked in Hollywood greenlighting movies and doctoring scripts. He set the Guinness World Record for the largest single-author, single-book signing.

David Farland has been hailed as "The Wizard of Storytelling" and his work has been called "compelling", "engrossing", "powerful", "profound" and "ultimately life-changing".

"I still use the writing techniques he discussed, and constantly reference him and his instruction when I teach creative writing myself. . . His explanations led me directly to getting an agent, and subsequently, my first book deal."

Brandon Sanderson,

#1 Bestselling Author of Way of Kings

"He understands storytelling and writing on a freaky level. All of us feel like we owe a huge debt to him."

James Dashner,

#1 Bestselling Author of The Maze Runner

"Aside from being a talented writer, David Farland is an excellent writing teacher. Hearing him teach live and reading his written advice has helped me focus many of my own thoughts about the writing process. Those who would like to learn more about the craft of writing would be wise to pay attention."

Brandon Mull,

New York Times Bestselling Author of Fablehaven
