Wizardborn (Runelords Series #3) by David Farland

Book Three of The Runelords

Certain works of fantasy are immediately recognizable as monuments, towering above the rest of the category. Authors of those works, such as Stephen R. Donaldson, J.R.R. Tolkien, Robert Jordan and Terry Goodkind, come immediately to mind. Now add David Farland to that list, whose epic fantasy series began with The Runelords.

Wizardborn continues the story of the struggle of Gaborn, now the Earth King, who has lost his powers but continues to lead his people. He must contend with the threat of the huge, inhuman Reavers, whose myriads Gaborn and his forces must now pursue across the nation. It has become Gaborn's fate to follow, even into the depths.

Raj Ahten, the great warlord endowed with the strength and qualities of thousands of men, once the primary threat to Gaborn, now struggles to retain his own empire. His war of conquest thwarted, his very life is now threatened by the Reaver thousands.

And a young girl, Averan, who has eaten a Reaver and absorbed some of its memories, becomes a keystone in the search for the dark Reaver lair.

Gaborn leads his forces in an attempt to cleanse his nation from the odious Reavers. However, the horde retreats heading back to its underground lair. Reluctantly, Gaborn knows he must follow if he is to ever end the Reavers threat to his by finding the proper path. Dreams of world conquest are long over. At about the same time that Gaborn chases the retreating enemy, the powerful Raj Ahtan realizes that the Reavers threaten his kingdom. However, he deals with a smarter breed that has learned how to more effectively and efficiently fights the humans.

Averan, a warden, becomes an apprentice, but her ability to eat Reaver brains becomes more important to humanity. She is able to understand what the Reavers intent is in a collective way and that may enable the fight to finally go underground to the lair of the Reavers.

WIZARDBORN, Book Three of the Runelords, is an exciting fantasy adventure that is quite different from the two previous novels as action takes a back seat to understanding of the principla characters. The story line overall is fast-paced, but at times slows down to provide more insight into the key cast members especially Raj. For those who read the first novel (see THE RUNELORDS) this is a bit of a disappointment, as Raj seems more human and less like a killing machine in a sort of evolution similar to Darth Vader from universal villain into a sacrificing father. Still, David Farland has written an entertaining tale that his fans will enjoy once they adjust to something that is a bit different.

David Farland has placed his mark up among the top of the list of Authors I've read. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and can't wait for 'The Lair of Bones' to be released.

The book is a worth the time reading. It has a varying story line, but the end leaves you thirsting for another book. The only thing that I dislike is how the main bad guy from the first book is a candie a$$ in this one. The storyline however is very entertaining and fun.

The characters are so flat and two dimensional, that i fnd myself screaming at the characters for the idiotic decisions thry make in order to stay consistent with their protrayed archetype. After reading the first two, i will concede that the series thus far has a Great plot, fast paced action, and amazing battle scenes. Itd be an amazing series if there was ANY character development at all.
