When I was a kid, I remember reading a book about this fantasy world where you can be imbued with runes. I apologize if this is vague but I will jot down some memories I have of it:
- The more runes you are imbued with the stronger you are.
- The nobility have loads of runes.
- There's specifically a scene where I remember a noble fighting a cyclops or some similar creature and his immense amount of runes made it easy for him to win.
Does this match anything? Or is my brain making up a book?
