    The Eighth Book of the Runelords is a profound fantasy that explores deep complex philosophical themes

    Flameweaver Fallion Orden continues his struggle to consolidate the splintered One World before it is too late following recent harrowing fights by his allies to rescue him from Lord Despair (see The Wyrmling Horde). Two of his supporters, warriors Borenson and Myrrima have no time for respite though they could use some. Fallion has used some magic in a desperate ploy for a super warrior on a critical quest; he consolidates into one warrior Borenson with berserker Aaath Ulber, a horned giant from the other side.

    However that amalgam proves to be a two edged blade. While Myrrima observes in horror and angry helpless understanding, Borenson increasingly loses much of his human essence with each passing moment while undergoing mission impossible to be Fallion's prime tool to unite humans against the wyrmlings.

    The Eighth Book of the Runelords is a profound fantasy that explores deep complex philosophical themes of what is a human, when does honor and patriotism turn myopic, and finally when does the sacrifice of another go too far. To fully grasp the complexities of the Farland universe, it is imperative to read the previous three books (see SONS OF THE OAK) that make up the second saga as each leads to the next. Not for everyone, though there is plenty of action as expected when a berserker runs wild, CHAOSBOUND is still a deep reflective tale with timely applications our world.

    Good and Bad

    The Runelords series is very engrossing, and a recommended read. The early books in the series are better than the newer ones. With the additional of alternate worlds, the author has created an inexhaustable number of stories and characters, but lost many readers interest by making the stories too complex. The real issue is the author himself ... this series is taking forever to write. It's been almost 2 years since the last book. I wouldn't have started the series if I had known it wasn't complete. My advice -- if you think you will live long enough -- wait for all of the books befoe starting this series. Once you start, you won't want to stop, and waiting 2 years for a sequel is ridiculous.
