This is the third book in David Farland's epic fantasy Runelords series, following The Runelords and Brotherhood of the Wolf. Having sacrificed most of his Earth-based magical powers in the previous book, King Gaborn is sworn to pursue the army of unfathomable Reavers across the land of Mystarria, hoping to slay them before they can take refuge in their underground lair. A revelation from Averan, a young girl who's gained the memories of a Reaver by eating its brain, forces a change in plan, however. If the Reavers get underground, she learns, they will be rallied by the magic of the One True Master Reaver and return to fight, more deadly than ever. Averan's own budding Earth Power leads to her being chosen as apprentice by Gaborn's Earth wizard Binnesman, and her Reaver knowledge will make her an indispensable part of Gaborn's forces. In the meantime, evil forces seek to murder Gaborn's wife and prevent her from giving birth to a son who could be more powerful than his father, while Gaborn's enemy Raj Ahten--who, like Gaborn, is also losing his endowed Earth Power--pursues the Reavers through his kingdom as well.
In the end, the book stops just as things are finally starting to move, but while offering little plot development and no real surprises, this latest chapter in the Runelords saga is still likely to please Farland's dedicated fans. --Charlene Brusso --This text refers to the MP3 CD edition.
From Library Journal
To atone for his misuse of the Earth's powers, Gaborn the Earth King sets out on a quest to find the Place of Bones. As giant creatures known as reavers continue to threaten the land, a young girl comes into her powers as one of the "wizardborn," holding in her memories the secrets of the reavers. The author's imaginative approach to magic, coupled with a richly detailed fantasy world and a cast of memorable heroes and villains, adds depth and variety to this epic tale of war and valor. Recommended, along with previous series titles (The Runelords, Brotherhood of the Wolf) for most fantasy collections.

Indeed, after the first three quarters of this book, all of which was taken up by the rather lackluster Day 9 "The Calm Between the Storms", I was discouraged about the progress of the book thus far. Fortunately, the next "Day" of the story progressed the plot nicely and contained the exciting and complex battle scenes that Farland is so good at describing. Raj Ahten's battle against the Reavers in Indhopal was simply awesome. I still have high hopes for the future of the series, but its going to take some serious skill for Farland to pull it off in a pleasing way. Here's hoping.
There's so many ideas that I love in these books. From the endowments (and all the craziness you can do with them (i.e. serpent ring), the days, the way the wizards are, and other worlds. I can't wait to read the next book, I don't want the series to end (perhaps following some characters in another country 200 years later or even a few thousand years ago).
