Chaosbound is the eighth novel in the Runelords book series, written by David Farland, and was published October 13, 2009.[1]

Plot introduction[edit]

Chaosbound is an epic fantasy novel set in a land where men can bestow to each other a number of endowments, granting the recipient of the endowment some attributes such as increased strength, a more acute sense of hearing, or better eyesight. The novel combines traditional sword and sorcery elements of fantasy with its own unique magic system of endowments.

Plot summary[edit]

Borenson & Myrrima arrive back from Landesfallen following the binding of the worlds, at Ox Port, where they are hunted by the wyrmlings, but surreptitiously helped and protected by the local wyrmling leader, Crull-maldor, who hopes to aid Borenson/Aaath Ulber in his prophesied destruction of the emperor Zul-Torac, clearing the way for Crull-maldor to replace him as Lord Despair's side. The wight exacts vengeance on Borenson/Aaath Ulber after his successful, endowment-aided destruction of the wyrmling forces and lair, by murdering Myrrima.
