The Runelords was the story of the conflict between Raj Ahten, the man who wanted the world, and the kings of the nations who opposed him. Raj Ahten had taken thousands of endowments, which could magically make him faster, stronger, smarter, etc., than everyone else. But there is one threat to his power. Gaborn Val Orden, who is the next Earth King. He has the power to Choose people, and once he has done this, he can warn them of danger and keep them safe.
For the most part, this was a good book. However, it can get very confusing at times, and if you're not focused, you will have no idea what's going on. It was a clever new use of magic and the different creatures and monsters were thought out well.This is a nice read if you like longer fantasy books. If you like it, you will be forced to read the next seven books as the story never really ends with a final victory.
If you like epic fantasy, beasts, and battles, then you will most likely enjoy this book.
