I think this book is exciting and riveting I canít wait till I read the next in this series I was captured in the book and read half the night wanting to know how it finished. This is an easy book to read nothing that complicated, except the editor of this book has to re-read what is written for a few words spelt wrongly and a phrase out. But otherwise a great and brilliant read.

The Runelords, Sum of all men, was wonderfully written by a wonderful author. It was moving. He put so much time and hard work into this piece of work. From the moment I sat down I was lost in this other world that I couln't help to think was true.

Gaborn has to use his wit to keep his love, Iome alive and King Sylvarresta. A boy with not a care in the world one day had to be a complete man the next.

Endowments of Metabolism, Stamina, and Wit were wonderfully thought up. Kings and Princes and Lords, took endowments to be strong for there lands, and the Dedicates were greatly appreciated for it, for they took good care of them.

This isn't just a book about fictionous magic,wights or creatures it's about people, and what those people will do for the love of their land and people.These are just some things that drew me to this book. From the very first page I was intrigued, and couldn't stop until I was at the very last page. I know I sure loved it.

I can't wait to read the other volume, and I know I'll enjoy it just as much as I enjoyed this one. I would strongly suggest reading this book.

This book was fantastic. A major fantasy epic that made you want to keep reading.Farland is a master of his art. The endowments were an excellent concept and I was in complete suspence until the end. I am looking forward to reading the next book and I hope it is as good as the first.
