Certain works of fantasy are immediately recognizable as monuments, towering above the rest. Authors such as J.R.R. Tolkien 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Farland once again proves himself a wizard at storytelling…This latest is certain to summon past readers of the series back to bookstores.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “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.”

    Library Journal

  • “Farland’s massive and compelling saga, which began with The Runelords, continues at a breakneck pace…As in the earlier books, the danger and violence are larger than life, and many die. But any grimness is leavened by the strong theme of love and respect for the earth and its denizens.”

    Booklist

  • “Colorful, inventive magics, vigorous plotting, and gore aplenty.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jordan Mierek | 2/1/2014

    " I know that many people enjoy this novel, but for me it was hard to keep my attention focused on the pages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Miss | 2/1/2014

    " I didn't like this as much as the first two books. I felt that the story could be actually cut in half and the first part to be connected to the second book and the second half to be part of the fourth and the last book of the series. It did answer a few questions (like Averan) and it's still a great opening for the last book when Gaborn is finally going to tackle the treacherous road to find the master of the reavers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Charles Warren | 1/23/2014

    " The first 2 books grabbed my attention and were quick reads. Wizardborn did not completely grab me. There are plenty of good bits within but it lacks something the other novels had; the action of the first and the plot/character development of the second. Don't get me wrong, there is action and plot/character development but it is just not as well done as the previous novels. "

    " still having fun with this series. this one had a lot less of an ending than the first two - which was frustrating since i finished it while on vacation and the fourth book was here at home... "
