Wizard’s First Rule
Sword of Truth Book One
By Terry Goodkind
In the style of all great epic fantasies we have Richard Cypher the young man who will become the Seeker of Truth, one day as he is in the woods before he yet learns of who he is he comes across Kahlan. Kahlan is not whom she appears to Richard, she is the Mother Confessor not only does she hold such a great title but she is also the last of the confessors. When you add in Zed the eccentric old man who has always been a dear friend to Richard and turns out to be a Wizard, not only do you have wonderful characters but a truly fascinating storyline as the three band together to defeat the evil Darken Rahl.
Terry Goodkind has created such and enchanting world where evil is exceptionally sadistic and the good may also come with some hint of bad. The action scenes are fluid and cohesive while the character growth and friendships emerge making this truly a wonderful book to read. Kahlen’s character was the most moving for me, she is feared by everyone around her so she has had only one friend previously, I loved the struggles this character had to overcome within this novel though each main character had an interesting story and I cannot wait to find out where their lives will lead. Not only do we travel along with the three main characters but we also are introduced to a spectacular cast, from the Mud People to the creatures who soon join their journey. When you add in the exciting end there is no wonder if you will be reading the next book soon, you will have no choice.
