Overview

Brotherhood of the Wolf (Runelords Series #2) by David Farland

Praise for David Farland's The Runelords:

"The Runelords heralds the arrival of a serious contender for the Jordan crown." --Michael Stackpole

"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

"When I reached the end of this first volume 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

"In The Runelords David Farland has created a vivid, detailed, different world that becomes perfectly believable. The characters are real, the action fast, and the sum a brilliant and engrossing novel." --David Drake

"David Farland is the single greatest discovery of my professional career." --Algis Budrys

"With The Runelords, David Farland breaks new ground in fantasy fiction and wakes up anyone who thought they'd read everything the genre had to offer." --Kevin J. Anderson

"A bloody, violent, grim saga, with thoughtfully devised magics and a well-turned plot...satisfying and involving." --Kirkus Reviews

"The Runelords is a wonderful fantasy novel." --Robert J. Sawyer

"The intriguing hook behind Farland's first novel--and launch of a new fantasy series--is a complex magical technology whereby abilities such as wit, brawn, and stamina are transferable from person to person. The magic is basic to Farland's story, not just painted on, and it and the society in which it plays out are rigorously and imaginatively elaborated." --Publishers Weekly

I picked up the Runelords on a whim, and checked out the website, and also on a whim e-mailed the author--and he surprised me by writing BACK. He told me a little more about the story than what I could read on the reviews, and well, he convinced me to give his story a go...it was a gamble I was VERY happy I took. I can't TELL you how impressed I was with the overall 'feel' of the story, especially the complete originality of the magic described...using 'dedicates' and taking upon you the attributes of others was incredibly facinating, and like I said, TOTALLY original. This is absolutely the BEST part of The Runelords, and it continues in the sequel, 'Brotherhood of the Wolf'. David Farland has written a captivating sequel which completely captures what made the original so unique and fun. Fantasy novels come and go, and I am fervently hoping that David Farland can continue to tap into his vast creative resources to entertain us for years to come. Give these books a try, and just sit back and let your imagination run wild. Great storytelling and a fantastic book. By the way, 4-stars in NO way means that this isn't an incredible book. I just don't give out very many. Judge for yourself and let's hope the next installment in the Runelords saga comes out SOON.

I loved most of the characters, even the ones I loved to hate, but I think there were too many and the overall premise was constantly sad. I know that some of that premise is what makes the story unique, but it doesn't make me fond of it. With so many characters, I wasn't sure who I was supposed to like or trust, and some of the gaps between scenarios left me wondering where I was when we last left off. That's confusing. Overall, I enjoyed the book, and I do like Farland's writing style. There were some misspellings, incorrect punctuation, and other technical things that were a little irritating, too, something both author and editor should have paid better attention to.
