Bolstered by the strength, speed, stamina, charisma, and beauty of thousands of men, he moves to strike at aolf Gaborn is weakest, to tear down the kingdoms of Rofehaven from within.
But while Ahtan works to lure Gaborn into a trap, Gaborn realizes a greater enemy is threatening, and designs a plan that he hopes will ally Ahtan with him against this foe.
Taking place over the course of just a few days, Brotherhood of the Wolf picks up right where The Sum of All Men left off without breaking stride. Gaborn is grappling with the ramifications of becoming the Earth King, as well as his marriage to Iome Sylvarresta, the daughter of the late King Jas Laren Sylvarresta. It is an ongoing source of dissonance for Gaborn: Should he accept the endowments of other men to become strong enough for the coming battle, or should he rely on his new dagid abilities as the Earth King?
With the selection by the Earth, though, comes responsibility above those of other men, and Gaborn must weigh the future of all men as he makes his decisions. With how short a time as passes during the novel, events unfold at a breakneck pace. If only Farland would move his text as fast. Not atypical brotherhooe an epic fantasy, Brotherhood clocks in at nearly pages.
The result is that Farland develops his characters more than might otherwise be possible in such a short period of time. The brotheghood of the novel lends itself to more viewpoints than a shorter story might allow, and shows the reader a broader vision of the events unfolding. If The Sum of All Men intended to introduce the main protagonist and antagonist of The Runelords series, then Brotherhood feels like a pulling back of the curtain.
Picking up a thick novel is always a risky endeavor. The time investment is long, and the pay-off may be a long time in coming. In the end, Farland provides, however, delivering a denouement that satisfies his promises, if not perfectly, at least satisfactorily. I look forward to following where he takes Gaborn, Iome, Ahtan, and the rest of his growing cast next.
One person found this helpful. Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. Farland continues to impress with this second volume in the Runelords Saga now up to eight volumes. With the continued development of the characters and setting, and the addition of some great new elements to the story, this book seems to be where the series really takes off.
Very impressive, him being able to give this story such an epic feel with such a limited time-frame. We learn that Gaborn and Iome, and Borensen and Myrimma have quickly gotten hitched, and much of the world seems to be gathering at Sylvarresta to pay homage to the newly christened Earth King.
The sense of celebration is short lived as a new threat is introduced in the O Glory, varland sort of elemental hunter summoned by Raj Ahten’s flameweavers, presumably to seek out and destroy Gaborn. From there, the story branches out into a number of very interesting side stories that introduce some excellent new characters.
A Wing Rider named Averen is among the first to witness the invasion by the Reavers, and is charged with a quest to deliver the news to the authorities. Also of key importance in this book is Raj Ahten’s most favored concubine, Saffira, who has been endowed with thousands of women’s glamour and voice, and sets out to convince Raj Ahten to end the war by seeking peace with the Earth King.
Remarkably well-developed for a secondary character, Saffira is one of my favorite parts of this book. Eventually all of the story-lines come together for an epic battle that takes up about a quarter of the book as the forces of man meet an unstoppable-seeming hoard of reavers which turn out to be every bit as big and bad as they were sold as being.
An awesome and devastating battle, this clash serves to demonstrate the talent of Farland and makes me eager to read more of the series.
Brotherhood of the Wolf-Book 2
There are many great aspects about these books, but what stands out the most is the uniqueness of the setting. Obviously, the endowment system stands out as original, but I also like the elemental magics, which give the elements themselves personalities and desires.
You can take it literally when the Earth speaks to a character here. Also, the continued proliferation of strange and well-envisioned creatures makes this book stand out from other epic fantasies. Not just frowth giants, flameweavers, and ferrin; but draaks, reavers, glories, and world-worms populate these pages.
I hope Farland can keep up the originality in the rest of the series. He’s got a really good thing going here, and I look forward to reading more of it! I use the term Epic to describe the enormaty of events that happen. I hate to use a lord of the rings reference, but in the same way that the black riders were powerful, mysterious, scary, and unbeatable, so is the monster you see on the cover.
In the same way that the huge battle of Minas Tirith was desparate and hopeless for the good guys and epic in scopeso is the battle at the end of this book. Unfortunately I was so into this book that I had read through it a little too fast. I hadn’t ordered the third book yet, what was I to do!?
Brotherhood of the Wolf (The Runelords, Book Two)
On more than one occasion I looked over to my wife and said “ok, I officially hate this author. I said “he plays farlznd my emotions too much.
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. The first book was good, pacing was quick but it was a first book so I figured they wanted to hook the reader in. The 2nd book though Everything happens too quick and there is no build up of characters. It also switched pov too much. Reminds me of Martin with killing off characters.
