This novella is a prequel to the series, set at the time when Richard's mother was a young child (~5 years old). ( )

This is a prequel to book 1 in the Sword of Truth series. I recommend not reading it until after reading book 1 - Wizard's First Rule. I've read book 1 and this prequel and the world created by Terry Goodkind as it is in book 1 and it's well crafted and interesting. The prequel tells the story of how the world came to be the way we find it in book 1. It's a great story, and helps put things into perspective. It's also a story that makes much more sense once you see the world as it is in book 1. I'm very much looking forward to continuing the many books already written in this series. ( )

short story sequel to the Sword of Truth series. About Zed and Abbey and how Zed raises the barriers between the lands. Interesting indeed. ( )

It was just there. Nothing special. Was interesting to get a backstory on Zedd though. ( )

-- Terry Goodkind's DEBT OF BONES is a fable with confessors, wizards, & sorceresses. Abby convinces good Wizard Zorander to help save inhabitants of Coney Crossing from evil Panis Rahl, a D'Haran. There are fevers, blisters, shadow people. At 119 pgs. book is relatively short. Before DEBT OF BONES Goodkind was unknown to this reader. He's a New York Times bestselling author. -- ( )
