Editorial Reviews

Review

"The apparent conclusion of the Runelords brings the saga's conflicts to a resounding climax in a three-cornered confrontation. . . . Thesuspense is real, the action is nonstop, and the characterizationscontinue to convince. . . . [this is] a series that has put Farland onhigh-fantasy readers' maps."-Booklist on The Lair of Bones

"The Runelords Saga comes to a gripping conclusion in David Farland's The Lair of Bones. . . . Farland's imaginative use of magic and detailed world-buildingcontribute to the impact . . . Gaborn is a flawed but likable hero whomreaders will be sorry to leave behind. Fans of Robert Jordan and TerryGoodkind will enjoy Farland's Runelords."-Romantic Times

"Sometimes truly terrifying, sometimes impossibly sweet, The Lair of Bones is a tale sure to entrance any reader. This is a superb story with deeply empathetic characters."-Sara Douglass

"David Farland's Runelords books are among the best fantasies on the markettoday. Great characters, a fascinating concept, and some really nastymonsters make each novel a pleasure to read." -- Kevin J. Anderson, NewYork Times bestselling author of A Forest Of Stars and Dune: The Machine Crusade.

"The world of fantasyhas a new king.  David Farland is alreadyone of the best fantasy writers there has ever been!"--John Jarrold on The Sum of All Men

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
