With Worldbinder, the best-selling epic series breaks new ground.
After the events of Sons of the Oak, Fallion and Jaz, the sons of the great Earth King Gaborn, are living as fugitives in their own kingdom, newly invaded and secretly controlled by supernatural beings of ultimate evil. The sons are hiding until they can regain their rightful places in the land.
Fallion seems destined to heal the world and feels the supernatural calling to act. When he summons his powers to do so, though, two entire worlds collapse into one, and every living thing in both worlds is transformed into an entirely new being - yet still somehow the same. Evil is certainly still the same - and may have influenced all of this for a terrible purpose.

"David Farland has written a series that rivals the best of Terry Brooks, Terry Goodkind, and Orson Scott Card." (SFRevu)
"Farland excels in dreamlike imagery." (Publishers Weekly)
Yes, but only if they needed mind candy to fill boring driving hours.
The narrator does a pretty good job of keeping the characters individually distinct. The story itself seems to be written as an outline and then only portions are filled between the highlights. There seems to be a lack of natural flow to the story. These last few books seem to be for sales, not to finish a story that started out a little above average.
He adds character distinction that would get difficult to follow while reading the book.
Yes, if this story wraps up instead of trying to write another installment to pay the bills.
