"With The Runelords, David Farland breaks new ground in fantasy fiction and wakes up anyone who thought they'd read everything the genre had to offer. Definitely a new name to watch in the field." - Kevin J Anderson

"A first rate tale, an epic fantasy that more than delivers on its promise." - Terry Brooks

"When I reached the end of this first volume, The Runelords, and saw grace arise from a devastating battelfield where too many great hearts lay dead, Farland had earned the tears that came to my eyes. It was not sentiment, but epiphany." - Orson Scott Card

"In The Runelords David Farland has created a vivid, detailed, different world that becomes perfectly believable. The characters are real, the action fast, and the sum a brilliant and engrossing novel." - David Drake

"David Farland is a consummate stylist, and his characters are so alive they walk right off the page. The Runelords is a wonderful fantasy novel." - Robert J Sawyer

"The Runelords heralds the arrival of a serious contender for the Jordan crown. This book is full of magic and myth, valor, treachery and bravery; all wrapped around a masterful epic adventure. This massive tale is woven together with the skill of a superior storyteller, making it a the start of a series that will thrill readers for years to come." - Michael A Stackpole
