The world of the Runelords has been combined by magic with another one parallel it, the beginning of a process that may unify all worlds into the one true world.
This story picks up after the events of The Wyrmling Horde and follows two of Farland’s well-known heroes, Borenson and Myrrima, on a quest to save their devastated land and the people of the new world from certain destruction. But the land is not the only thing that has been altered forever: In the change, Borenson has merged with a mighty and monstrous creature from the other world, Aaath Ulber.
He begins to change, becoming a berserker warrior with a huge new body. Thousands have died. Lands have sunk below the sea and, elsewhere, risen from it. And the supernatural rulers of the world are part of a universal evil yet play a byzantine game of dark power politics among themselves - a game in which Aaath Ulber is now the most significant pawn….

It's excellent but...
That is was so exciting and pulled on into the moment.
Excellent as always. He truly holds the characters and story together.
Oh I laughed and cried in many places, especially at the deaths of so many characters. The pain of Fallion in the last book is multiplied in this story by all the horrible events taking place. When Mirama (sp?) died.
I hope the story really doesn't end here. I feel somehow cheated. I get the feeling that the author finished the book this way because of the death of his own wife of which I'm greatly saddened to hear. I understand there was a book 9 but it's been pulled for some reason and I guess I don't expect the series to continue as it may be to difficult for the author to do. He appears to have moved on to other stories.
