"An exciting and enjoyable read that was difficult to put down. "
5 stars"

The author has created a world and set of characters that the reader can sympathize, relate to and ultimately ‘cheer on’ throughout the book. While the novel is basically a ‘good vs evil’ story, it does not hold back on the harsh realities of life and indeed the story itself promotes a sense of emotional involvement from the reader. If you enjoy authentic characters, magical back-drops and prime examples of the human condition (food and bad), then this book is definitely for you!

"Excellent story that is a great start to a series of books"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Great story with lots of little twists in it, however I felt that the story dragged a bit in the middle due to Terry Goodkinds style of writing as things were not very well explained at the start. However I later realised that was to help the reader relate to the main charter and allow the reader to imagine the writers world in their own way. I recommend it to anyone who likes fantasy styled books and would say that whoever reads it should leave judgement till they have finished the entire book


One man, Richard Cypher, holds the key to the fate of three nations, of humanity. But until he learns the Wizard's First Rule his chances of succeeding in his task are slim. And his biggest problem is admitting that magic exists at all...

A novel of incomparable scope and brimming with atmospheric detail: in a world where heart hounds stalk the boundaries for unwary human prey, blood-sucking flies hunt on behalf of their underworld masters, and where artists can draw more than your likeness, there is no place to hide, nowhere safe. Here magic makes love twice as sweet, betrayal and loss twice as bitter.
