Wizard's First Rule: Book One in A Sword of Truth Series
The first rule of wizards: People will believe anything.
I was thoroughly enchanted with the world that Mr. Goodkind created in Wizard's First Rule. It was so well written
I wasn't aware that another book, a sequel, was even possible. Wow. Loved every word.
A woods guide, Richard Cypher, and the Mother Confessor, Kahlan, were the last hope
against the forces of Darken Rahl, minion of the evil lord of the underworlds, the Keeper.
Stone of Tears
Giving you too much of this rather ruins the plot of the first, but suffice to say that you won't be sorry. Richard
and Kahlan meet the Mud People, Richard meets and is taken by the Sisters of the Light, Kahlan leads
her army against the Imperial Order and we find that Wizard's Second Rule is that the greatest harm
can come from the best intentions.
Blood of the Fold
This title describes the Keeper's army, the Blood of the Fold, who set themselves up as
seekers of evil, (magic), and try to eradicate it, with or without cause. Wizard's Third Rule: Passion rules reason.
Temple of the Winds
An unbelievably evil plague is let loose on the world and only by making the hazardous (to say the least)
trip to the Temple of the Winds can Richard hope to save his world and Kahlan's life! The Wizard's
Fourth Rule is that there's magic in forgiveness.
Soul of the Fire
Richard and Kahlan are threatened by the chimes, which negate magic.
Living in a world without magic would literally kill all life.
Over 500 pages in this one. Not too long. :) Fifth rule is: Mind what people do, not only what they
say, for deeds will betray a lie. I can hardly wait for the next!!! These books are awesome!
Raymond E. Feist
The story of PUG, apprentice to the master Kulgan, but with a magic all his own. A rift between two worlds is discovered, and the warring people on the other side threaten all life on the planet. These books all contain a summary of events leading up to that particular place in the story, so find any one and go to it!
The continuation of the Apprentice story, in which Pug was captured by the Tsurani, the warrior race of invaders from another world. His unusual talent as a possessor of magic caused him to be whisked away by the Tsurani magicians, where he learned of his own great powers, and became a Master magician, or Great One. Going through the rift again, Milamber (Pug) helps to bring peace between the warring worlds, with a little help from his friends.
Another continuation of the saga, wherein the new king is being sought, to the death, by the Night Hawks. The most evil being of all seeks his death, and brings the dead to life to help him. Meanwhile, Prince Arutha's love is ill, and only Silverthorn will heal her.
