Summary

At the end of Worldbinder, Fallion Orden, son of Gaborn, was imprisoned on a strange and fantastic world that he created by combining two alternate realities. It’s a world brimming with dark magic and ruled by a creature of unrelenting evil, one who is gathering monstrous armies from a dozen planets in a bid to conquer the universe.

Only Fallion has the power to mend the worlds, but at the heart of a city that is a vast prison, he lies in shackles. The forces of evil are growing and will soon rage across the heavens. Now, Fallion’s allies must risk everything in an attempt to free him from the wyrmling horde.

“The Runelords is a first rate tale, an epic fantasy that more than delivers on its promise. Read it soon and treat yourself to an adventure you won’t forget.” (Terry Brooks)

“Strong storytelling and vital characters as well as an ingenious system of magic make this a good addition to most fantasy collections.” ( Library Journal)

really entrances with this book.

I find I am really hoping for the bad guys to get a kicking and that the author doesn't kill off any of my heroes

Awesome Reads

If you could sum up The Wyrmling Horde in three words, what would they be?

An Awesome Read

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Wyrmling Horde?

This is always such a difficult question as the story is striated over many books and the series is wonderful and imaginative.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Very much the interplay between good and evil

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

So very much so when the main character became entrapped and feared for life

Any additional comments?

David Farland is a truly great writer, try reading also books by John Ringo, Ann Rice Chris Fieldwater and Diana Rowland.

a good story line continues

I enjoyed this book because of its storyline. it just seems the author could have finished the series without going into another book.It feels drawn out at this point and that wasn't necessary.

Half a book

This series is one of my all time favorites, but this book and the previous one in the series, "Worldbinder" each felt more like half a book. The story seemed interrupted by the transition between the two when it should have been one single book.

Now it's getting interesting

Would you consider the audio edition of The Wyrmling Horde to be better than the print version?

Never read the print edition. I only listen to audiobooks.

What did you like best about this story?

The author seemed to get his groove back.

Which character – as performed by Ray Porter – was your favorite?

Daylin Hammer (sp?), but all the characters are necessary. Also Carissa (sp?) the wormling girl as she was very brave.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When the big wormling who rescued Carissa was killed. And when the Netherworld accepted the humans for a few days.
