I am starting to delve into my "Books-i've-had-for-a-while-but-never-read" pile, and I've come to the second book of David Farland's Runelords series. I remember vaguely what happened in the first book, but no really significant details. Is there a site somewhere that hosts synopses of fantasy novels? I can't seem to find one, but some of you guys come out with some interesting links. Erf.

In fact, looky here!
Four days before Hostenfest, the young Prince Gaborn Val Orden enters the city of Bannisferre incognito. He is expected to marry the Crown Princess, Iome, to cement their lands alliance, but soon events overtake such plans. Raj Ahten, Wolf Lord of the Southern Lands, is invading the Northern kingdoms of Rofehaven to increase his power bas as a prelude to facing the barbarian hordes of Inkarra. To the northerners there seems little difference between the two enemies. Before there is time for old alliances to be reforged - or for a new alliances to be born - Raj Ahten has taken an entire kingdom and is moving northward... thanks to the "endowments" of wit, brawn and glamour he has drawn vampire-lile, from the conquered masses. Gaborn and Iome are amongst those who continue to oppose Raj Ahten's seemingly unstoppable conquest as a world goes to war and the powers of the Earth King are woken... David Farland has created a new colourful world of honour and magic which will be loved by all readers of Robert Jordan. Epic fantasy has a new emperor...

That site is okay for a sort of no-spoilers write-up, but as I've already read it(a few years back), I am really looking for a three or four page write up on who did what when just in case there's anything that is of importance to the second book. It's not crucial, though. I will read it regardless, but I thought maybe a synopsis would ease the journey a bit. Erf.

So you probably wouldn't want this then :)

Not what I was after, but still very entertaining. Erf.
