Law of Nines–Terry Goodkind–Book review

Ever wonder if someone else is also looking at you through the mirror? Terry Goodkind has. Chased by unknown foes, Reasoning your way through life and art, and inheriting mysterious tracts of land is a day in the life of Alexander Rahl.

Wait! Rahl? I wonder why that sounds so familiar? Hmmm, it could be because that name was so prevalently used in his last series. And unfortunately, it’s not the only thing that will be revisited from the Sword of Truth series.

If your looking for a fresh new start from Terry Goodkind, this is probably not the book for you. Plot sequence, character’s, and theme’s were all from Wizard’s First Rule. It was almost like painting by numbers, for writing. Don’t get me wrong, I like the theme, I like his writing, but I wasn’t expecting to pay hardback price for a book I’ve already got.

If on the other hand you’ve never read any of Terry Goodkind’s other works; the book is/can be quite enjoyable. The story has an edge-of-your-seat flow that will keep you up past your bed-time and characters that jump to life before your eyes.

Since I’m already acquainted with Terry Goodkind’s work: **
If I pretend I’ve never read him before: ****

  1. I pray that the health care plan backed by President Obama does not become law until the American people have a chance to really think it through. A law as huge as this one demands as thought as we can afford.
