In the aftermath of the brutal murder of his father, Richard Cypher encounters a mysterious woman, Kahlan Amnell, in his forest sanctuary. She seeks his help...and more. His world, his very beliefs, are shattered when ancient debts come due with thundering violence. In their darkest hour, Kahlan calls upon Richard to reach beyond his sword—to invoke within himself something more noble. Neither knows that the rules of battle have just changed...or that their time has run out. This is the beginning. One book. One rule. Witness the birth of a legend. “Wonderfully creative, seamless, and stirring.” – Kirkus Review
One would never think that a person with dyslexia would become a writer of novels. However, American author, Terry Goodkind crossed the usual boundary and wrote his first novel, even though he did not receive a formal education. He began his adult life building cabinets and violins, as well as was a marine/wildlife artist. His first novel, Wizard's First Rule, was published in 1994, thus beginning his illustrious career. He is now also a part-time race car driver, and is also a devoted husband and a friend to animals.
To quote Author Terry Goodkind........My privilege in life is the joy of writing books and telling stories about people who fascinate me, the good and the bad.
Goodkind's newest novel is NEST, where readers will be drawn into a world that is dark and evil. He remains one of the most controversial thriller writers of our time.
I am a fan of the show Legend of the Seeker and thought that I would try out the series. I love the book! It was different from the show so it was interesting to read the differences. It is grittier and darker. It is a lengthy book, but you never noticed. I could not put it down toward the end of the book.
5-stars for the story. The version read by Sam Tsoutsouvas is much better. Booksfree has both.
