    One thought on “Brotherhood of the Wolf

    1. Daniel (Attack of the Books!) Burton on said:

      Raj Ahtan has fled from Gaborn Val Orden, the prophesied and ascendant Earth King. Tricked on the field of battle by a ruse, Ahtan is far from vanquished. Bolstered by the strength, speed, stamina, charisma, and beauty of thousands of men, he moves to strike at where 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 again [...]

      A very entertaining read. Starts off kind of slow and contains many fantasy cliches. That being said, it is also action packed and has a very unique feel to it as well.Farland has trouble giving life to the main characters, I feel like they really don't have any consistent personality and are very boring. There are a lot of side-characters that are really personable and you come to really enjoy, however they are also lumped in with even MORE side characters who you vaguely get to know but are ju [...]

      This was a nice follow-on to the first book of Runelords series. I was engaged and intrigued the whole book.The only criticism I have is the "sudden" change of heart for Iome about the dogs. I wanted a bit more explanation and more of her reasoning. But, perhaps it was there and I read through the book too quickly to catch it.I am excited to read the next book in the series though (I have it and almost changed its order in my "to read" stack, but I wanted to go to a different genre first in prep [...]

      I read an accurate description about this series on a site talking about an upcoming Runelords movie and this quote pretty much sums it up: "Some have called it the "crack cocaine" of heroic fantasy, combining the world creation and artistic sensibilities of Lord of the Rings with the heart-pounding action and sense of wonder of the Matrix". I loved the random green woman that falls from the sky in this book.

    5. Pa on said:

      The second book in the Runelords series. Like its predecessor, a well-above-average fantasy tale. The characters are interesting and generally not one-dimensional. The plot is well developed, though the tale is likely almost endless.

    6. Dino D'Angelo on said:

      i found it surprising that so many 'slammed' this book as one of the worst in the series, i found it thoroughly entertaining a 'proper' follow up in the series (leading you into the answers that you question while reading, not losing pace nor going off on superfluous tangents).

    7. Chip Hunter on said:

      Farland continues to impress with this second volume in the Runelords Saga (now up to eight volumes). By expanding the scope to include more story-lines, BROTHERHOOD OF THE WOLF has a more epic feel than its predecessor, and while some readers have found it slower, I actually enjoyed it more than The Sum of All Men. 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. Like [...]

    8. Diane on said:

      I find the Earth King's idealistic naivete very frustrating. That being said, I find this world unique, rich and totally unputdown-able:-)

    9. Lucinda on said:

      A spectacular sequel that promises much to come, for a truly ambitious series of outstanding scope! Brotherhood of the Wolf is the second installment within the magnificent Runelords series, which exceeds all expectations with its complexity of plot and depth. Exquisite storytelling that is so absorbing and compelling, David Farland puts the ‘epic’ in fantasy with his remarkable and totally original creation. Detailed, realistic and cleverly crafted the scope of world-building is just astoni [...]

      I enjoy the writing in this book, though the more I read the more flaws I feel I find. The way that the forcibles seem to lack credibility and the method that they seem to work, just doesn't feel right. When the idea was first brought in I really like it, but now as I read more into it, much of it seems to lack planning, as if he wanted to change how it works.Now I will forgive him a good deal on it as it was brought in the the authors first fantasy novel, which means he may have thought it up b [...]

      The more I think about this book, the less sure I am that I liked it. All that talk of eating reavers and drinking blood just makes me feel a little bit ill. And it just took so long for everything to happen. I can't believe the entire book took place over the course of about a week. I didn't really like the way that Farland organized the book. I always had to backtrack whenever I got to a new character, and that is not only annoying, but also a bit confusing.However, because I am such an avid r [...]

    12. Marcelo on said:

      This book tired me a little. It is a compeling story, about caring characters, but it suffers from the typical illness of epic fantasy: nothing happens for 500 pages, until the bombastic, epic battle climax. Truly, this novel could be a couple of hundred pages leaner. Those are my only complaints, though. As a sequel to «The sum of all men», this volume lives up to its task. David Farland delivers a satisfying story and cleverly brings forth a host of new characters, and he gives life to each [...]

    13. Mark on said:

      Book two is still one of the better fantasy series out there because it struggles to avoid the cliches of the genre. It still fails. It also violates a few other rules of writing, for example:Rule #38a: If your book goes over 500 pages and your name is not Leo Tolstoy, make it smaller.Rule #38b: If your trilogy goes over 3 books, make it smaller.Rule #48: If you are a really good writer, than you are permitted to bring _at_most_ a single character back from the dead in a series (c.f. J.R.R.Tolki [...]

    14. Gary on said:

      This book has a lot of neat ideas. The author has developed a very interesting world and some decent characters. The only thing I find is that the first third of his books seems to be very slow reads. They are enjoyable, and really quite distinct in the world of fantasy.I'd have to agree with another commentor who mentioned the disparity in how fighting a certain creature is handled. It seems a herculean task in the beginning of the book and at the end, far easier. (not easy, but not nearly as t [...]

    15. Mark on said:

      If I could give this book a 7/10 I would but I'm rounding up since I think the lower rating is partly my fault. I didn't like this book as much as the first one, which I gave a 5/5, and I guess it's because the first one opened a whole new world for me and I feel this one just took longer to get anywhere. You know there's a final battle that's going to happen but you have to read through 400+ pages of people talking and plotting first and now that this world is open to me I was kind of bored at [...]

      It seems that both The Earth King and The Wolf Lord have a common enemy: The Reavers - strange, 16-ton insects which live underground. As The Reavers attack both kingdoms, Raj Ahten besieges the strategic location of Carris - only to be besieged by Reavers himself.Another fine book, which focuses on the strengths and limitations of its characters. Whilst there are battle scenes with thousands of men dying, it is the personal conflicts which the protagonists must overcome. And, at the end of the [...]

    17. Bryce on said:

      The war between Orden and Raj Ahten continues. Orden has been designated the Earth King, and the Earth is aiding him, while Raj Ahten attempts to draw Orden into battle. But yet a new, unstoppable threat is taking form, requiring perhaps otherwise unthinkable acts.The story is pretty engrossing--I really want to find out what happens. But the author has an irritating habit of explaining in great detail the internal logic of each of the major (and some minor!) characters. It's kind of disruptive [...]

    18. Heath on said:

      This book was the second in the series. It started slow but in the end I couldnt put it down. I really liked how the characters where put in difficult situations and had to make tough choices. I have read where some say the book is all about endowments, but some of the characters have none when doing extraordinary tasks, ie Merima, Borenson, Bennisman, Gaborn, etc so the argument over endowments is not accurate. I actually like the runelords with their endowments, very neat idea to me.Anyway, I [...]

    19. Phil on said:

      The editing in these Runelords books is atrocious. There are all kinds of misplaced words, with the end of sentences being cut off and completely relocated to the wrong paragraph. BUT, the story is fantastic. The concept of endowments is unique and the way that system can be used/exploited introduces all kinds of questions about morality. Despite the terrible editing, I will be reading this entire series.

    20. Theshrewedshrew on said:

      The last 3 pages were stupid I want to smack Gaborn's wife. I think the very fact that you say something to the effect of I will save the people and then manage to get a force warrior killed haveing pulled about 80 people out when your husband said just the night before 1 force warrior = 400 people is kind of a defeat but it never crosses the stupid girls mind. Also Rah Ahten is a pathetic little whiny girl.

    21. Dave on said:

      Finally finished this book earlier this year What I do like about the book is how uncoventional it continues to be in terms of its approach to the fantasy genre.A runelord is able to take attributes from another like stamina, voice, beauty, etc to increase hi/her own abilities. It is a neat concept and I think later there will be a fine line between heroes/villians.

    22. Eric Edstrom on said:

      I really liked this one. I've read some negative reviews that nothing happens for the first 500 pages, but I disagree. There is a lot of setup work, but I found it all moved along at a good clip. I'm particularly intrigue with the girl Averan.I'm going to take a one-book break from this series and then dive into book 3!

    23. Bryan Landress on said:

      An epic novel that shows the growth of many of the characters in new and unexpected ways. The addition of characters help to broaden the story and add new twists and possibilities to this growing series. The battles feel overbearingly powerful and truly shape the world that Farland has unveiled.

    24. Sam Phillips on said:

      This book is one that is intense. The characters are all real. Man do I feel bad for Borenson!

    25. Caleb Miller on said:

      I picked up the second book because the end of the first book caught my attention. The author writes well enough, and does a good job at giving the characters/villains depth. The magic system is quite unique. However, the uniqueness really wore off in the second book.The author really seems to have a formula for each of the first two books. Taking a very slow trudging pace for the first 2/3 of the book, then it gets more interesting the last third. However, I found much of detail of the book rep [...]

    26. Wilco Boshoff on said:

      An interesting fow is spoiled by no clear direction in the story. A wonderful magic system is is by far the shining light in this book, but it does not really know where it is going or what it's own rules really are.And if I have to read about one more horse that has nearly been ridden to death, it would be 100 too many.

    27. Matt Reno on said:

      Good character growth and interesting changes in what we know about the world

      If you're a fan of the first book you'll be a fan of the second installment.
