Runelords excels because this novel idea is not mere window dressing--Farland uses it to explore fundamental questions of life and morality. The story's hero, the young Runelord Gaborn, struggles to define his role in this "shameful economy" while keeping his commitments to himself, to his people, to the woman he loves, and to the earth itself. We end up asking ourselves the same questions: Should you choose your friends based on insight or virtue? Is it better to be just or good? Competent fantasy lets you escape to adventure in faraway lands, but exceptional fantasy makes sure you have something to think about when you get back. Runelords accomplishes the latter. --Paul Hughes --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Wonderful first book. Very original magic system with the "force ambles". It started a bit slow the once the pace hit a gallop it never stopped. Read morePublished 4 months ago by P. J. Schmidt
Love it so much
I read the series several times.
I am reading it again on kindle.
Don't miss it.
Entertaining, but I found the magic of the world far more interesting than the characters. A nice, harmless bit of fantasy junk food, but it never loves up to the ideas at the... Read morePublished 7 months ago by Clifford Jackson
