Description

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.

Spend some more time among the Runelords.

Commentaires

“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)
“Colorful, inventive magics, vigorous plotting, and gore aplenty.” ( Kirkus Reviews)
“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)

keeps up fast pace

This is the best book in the series so far. I haven't listened to the 4th yet, but I liked Wizardborn more than the first two(I gave all 4 stars). David Farland blends deep philosophy with near thriller-style pacing. The Runelords is a very different fantasy series for those two reasons. I highly recommend giving them a try, but you've got to start with the first or you'll be lost.

The Story Continues...

This book continues the story of the new "Earth King-Gaborn as he follows the horde of Reavers. He has lost his powers and now questions whether or not the Earth will help in the upcoming fight in which man-kind will soon face. Raj Ahten who has more endowment and thus the most powerful man in the world is struggling just to keep his empire under his rule. This book is well written and bridges the gap between "Brotherhood of the Wolf" and "The Lair of Bones." The narrator Ray Porter does a good job of bring the book to life in this audible edition of the print book. I would recommend this book for any Epic Fantasy book readers.

An excellent fantasy though lacks humor

If you are looking for the 'fantastic' part in a fantasy, this is your book.

World is vivid, and it is serious where people with power held up to serious responsibilities. The magic system is unique, and story line moves at a fast pace. Characters are flushed out, and narrator does justice to them.

My only gripe is that this is a very serious book and does not stop for any light moments. Though, given the background and pace of the book, i am not surprised.

I hope that Audible goes ahead and get the next book in series. I knew that series was not complete on audible, but i dont regret my decision of reading the three books which are available so far : )

I recommend this series.

Great Series

This series has been real good so far. So good that I find myself extremely frustrated at audible for not putting up the next book. This one ends at a particularly suspenseful moment and I am dying to see what happens. Its out of stock at Barnes and Noble too so hurry up Audible!

Made me sleepy

The first 2 books of this series were good, but this made me fall asleep. It wouldn’t have been so bad if I wasn’t driving at the time....

Interesting characters

By the end of this book, I have really developed relationships with so many of the characters in this series. There is great character development which helps with the multiple plot lines going on at the same time. Solid narration.

Stop interesting, but so slow

The work is interesting, but I struggled through much of it due to slow pace.

Power and Prowess.

The third installment in this series is no disappointment. With a rich balance of action, adventure, romance, tragedy, and everything a good book needs, "Wizardborn" takes you by the heart and soul to lead you further down the winding path. Mr. Porter continues to impress with not only his vocal range, but his verbal conveyance of emotion.

Master of story telling

David Farland is one of the greats at not just telling but seams to give endowments to the audience, granting the reader/listener the ability to be in Farlands shadow world.
