David Farland delivers the second in his high fantasy Runelords series, featuring a complex system of magic and a wondrous, expertly realized world. Raj Ahten, ruler of Indhopal, has used enough forcibles to transform himself into the ultimate warrior: the Sum of All Men. Ahten seeks to bring all of humanity under his rule, destroying anyone in his path. But young Prince Gaborn has fulfilled a two-thousand-year-old prophecy and become the Earth King, a mythic figure who can unleash the forces of the Earth itself. He has managed to drive off Raj Ahten, but Ahten is far from defeated. Striking at far-flung cities and fortresses, Ahten seeks to draw out the Earth King from his seat of power and to crush him. But as they weaken each other’s forces in battle, the armies of an ancient and implacable inhuman enemy issue forth from the very bowels of the Earth.

    " An epic novel that shows the growth of many of the characters in new and unexpected ways. The addition of characters help to broaden the story and add new twists and possibilities to this growing series. The battles feel overbearingly powerful and truly shape the world that Farland has unveiled. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginger Stout | 7/10/2013

    " The first book was good, obviously, because I read the second one. The book gets a little monotonous with Gaborn being a little girl about making decisions and the whole "SAVE MOTHER EARTH" aspect that is shoved down your throat at every turn. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily S. | 6/30/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pa | 6/13/2011

    " The second book in the Runelords series. Like its predecessor, a well-above-average fantasy tale. The characters are interesting and generally not one-dimensional. The plot is well developed, though the tale is likely almost endless. "

    " i found it surprising that so many 'slammed' this book as one of the worst in the series, i found it thoroughly entertaining... a 'proper' follow up in the series (leading you into the answers that you question while reading, not losing pace nor going off on superfluous tangents). "
