Read it soon and treat yourself to an adventure you won't forget." - Terry Brooks "When I reached the end of this first volume, The Runelords, and saw grace arise from a devastating battlefield where too many great hearts lay dead, Farland had earned the tears that came to my eyes. It was not sentiment but epiphany." - Orson Scott Card As a writing instructor, Farland has mentored dozens who have gone on to staggering literary success, including such #1 New York Times Bestsellers as Brandon Mull (Fablehaven), Brandon Sanderson (Wheel of Time), James Dashner (The Maze Runner) and Stephenie Meyer (Twilight) Farland judges L.

"I still use the writing techniques he discussed, and constantly reference him and his instruction when I teach creative writing myself. . . His explanations led me directly to getting an agent, and subsequently, my first book deal." Brandon Sanderson, #1 Bestselling Author of Way of Kings "He understands storytelling and writing on a freaky level. All of us feel like we owe a huge debt to him." James Dashner, #1 Bestselling Author of The Maze Runner "Aside from being a talented writer, David Farland is an excellent writing teacher.
