The Runelords Reading Order

What’s in the Runelords Reading Order?


David Farland started the Runelords series in 1998. David Farland is a pen name for David Wolverton, who has worked in multiple science fiction and fantasy genres, including Star Wars.

The Runelords reading order on this page takes the entire epic fantasy series and places it in chronological order for your reading convenience. Thankfully this isn’t too difficult with the Runelords series since it was released chronologically. But just like our other timelines, be sure to let us know if we got anything wrong or if there’s something else we could change.
