"Highly Recommended!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The Sword of Truth was recommended to me by a friend, and I'm grateful he did.

Not only a fantastic action-packed adventure story, but Terry writes in such a way as to vividly paint each and every scene into your mind, and the character development is outstanding.

If you want to be engrossed in a book, and want compelling characters, then don't miss out on this one.

"A very enjoyable book"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Watched the TV series “Legend of the Seeker” and liked it so thought I'd read the books. This book is what became the TV show's first season. I found it a very enjoyable story, better than the show, and would recommend it to anyone who likes Tolkien or Raymond E. Fiest.

Wizard's First Rule marks the debut of a new fantasy writer. Truly epic in scope and filled with burning intensity, it is the story of Richard Cypher, a modest woodsman in a world achingly beautiful, alive with the joys of nature: a world the reader comes to love as fiercely as do Richard and those around him. Though a mere woodsman, he is the one destined to battle the ultimate adversary - Darken Rahl, an evil mage who bids to destroy all that Richard holds good and beautiful, dooming him and the rest of the people of Westland to a living Hell of subjugation and degradation.
