Tommen Forbes is essentially your ordinary 16 yr outdated: Oh, and he is quite one hundred sixty years outdated being able to bend Time, to make it pass speedier or slower at will.
His dad, murder Detective Walter Forbes, additionally has this skill. The Order of the tale Tellers conform to an uneasy alliance with the Lords of Delmarath amassing facts relating a plot to wreck the prairie-men and oust the excessive King of Dana. By no means am I a grammar nazi, but that, in addition to the numerous typos, was distracting enough to take away from the experience at times. I imagine it was just lazy editing, which is unfortunate. Because this book is touching at the very least, and can change the way you look at life at best.
Sure, it's a series about swords and magic, but I truly believe that it could have any other theme with the same sets of circumstances and have the same effect. There are some situations in the book that had me sitting back for the better part of an hour, mulling things over in my head or comparing them to my own life.
Stone of Tears
I hear this takes a dark turn to self righteousness past book 5 or so, but I'll just have to see. If that's the case, I don't mind putting the series down and just enjoying what I've read up to this point; it's that good. If I had a complaint, it would be the sheer amount of rape content in this book. Not that it was overly disturbing or graphic, he made the point without making it unreadable.
But then he did it again. To the point where I started feeling bad for something I wouldn't ever do or think of doing; made to feel like crap just because I'm a man. We get more than enough of that with today's society, I could have done without all of it in this book.
Or at least some redeeming qualities of the good men in the book brought out, instead of it being so seemingly one sided besides Richard, who it seems can do no wrong in any part of his life. He did an excellent job tying in to the first book, in my opinion. This one could basically just start off as the next chapter from the previous book's last, with no more explanation of the first story than absolutely necessary.
Overall, an excellent follow-up if you've read the first one, and you should definitely pick it up! If you enjoyed the intensity of the first book and if you were wondering if it could be carried forward this provides a decisive YES. The horror of captivity themes of the first book are not lost as Goodkind explores other aspects of desolation and war.
Like the first book, this is not for the faint of heart but if you can stomach ultra-violence and intense themes this is another extraordinary book. This series must be read in order. The first book is Wizard's Firs Rule. This is the second book. I can't wait to read Blood Of The Fold!
With Darken Rahl defeated and in the hands of the Keeper it seems like things are finally falling into place for Kahlan and Richard. Unfortunately magic always has a price,and violating the Wizard's Second Rule carries steep penalties. The veil between the world of the Living and the world of the Dead has been torn. Will Richard and Kahlan be able to marry in front of the Mud People before they have too start yet another epic quest?
Or will their happiness be torn away by duty yet again? What is happening to Richard? Why are the spirits inciting violence and hate? Can the world be made right? Or will it all fall to the Keeper? One person found this helpful. I know these books have been around for some time now and I know that there is a lot to be said both positively and negatively about them, but honestly, despite being annoyed by the love story from time to time, I find myself reading page after page and book after book. I cry, I laugh, I feel suspense.
It really is an adventure to read this series.
It's a very good series so far I'm only on book 3 currently. It's an adult book sure, but it's a pointless amount and is excessively detailed on top of it. Just something to consider. It is the only thing I dislike about this series, but it's a borderline deal breaker. Better then game of thrones.
A Matter of Honor
My love of fantasy sprung from the sword of truth series. So many twists and turns within the story. So many small hints of what is to come. Once you had read the series read it again and you will be in awe of the masterpiece that Terry has written. I think I enjoy this book more as a re-read, I can relax and know that the story will work itself out, without worrying about the complications.

Richard has not yet fully come to terms with who he is, and just wants to marry Kahlan and return to a simpler life. Maybe it won't be so simple since she's the Mother Confessor, but still, no more races against death. Richard's magic is waking up and he has no idea how to wield it.
Unfortunately, neither Kahlan or Richard knows that home of the Sisters, the Palace of the Prophets is a time-spell, and Richard will be there for plus years! Also, there are Sisters of the Dark, hoping to open the veil and break the Keeper free.
Series by cover
Richard allowed the veil to be torn when he tricked Darken Rahl into opening one of the boxes of Orden. A new force is sweeping the Midlands - the Imperial Army, and they're out to destroy magic, and are basically just dicks. Good think Kahlan was trained by her warrior king father, since she helps a ragtag group of young army men fight off the forces.
