Wizard's First Rule (Sword of Truth, #1)Wizard’s First Rule by Terry Goodkind

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

To start with, this was a large book with over 700 pages but that did not put me off as most books I read fall into that category.

This was my first Goodkind book and to be honest I thought it was slow going through about the first quarter of the book and then it picked up.

At times things seemed a bit parallel with Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings but I can forgive him for that as the story and characters are very in-depth not to mention that there are very dominant women characters which you don’t get very often in Fantasy books.

Having read lots of reviews on this book and the following books in the series, it would seem people fall into two categories of either loving or hating his books. I loved it and look forward to reading the rest in the series.


Richar Cypher’s decision to help a woman in the Upper Ven near the Boundary between the Midlands and Westlands creates more trouble than first appears. The woman, Kahlan Amnell, seeks the help of a wizard in thw Westland, and she brings with her dark mews from the other side of the Boundary: Darken Rahl, Ruler of D’Hara, has brought down the Boundary bewteen D’Hara and the Midlands. This menacing ruler continues his dead father’s quest for control by pressing war on the now vulnerable Midlands. Kahlan is attempting to find the great wizard who left the Midlands for the Magic free Westlands due to he corruption of the government in his eyes, so as to have him name a Seeker of Truth. The great wizard turns out to be Zeddicus Zu’l Zorrander, Richard’s longtime friend, who then proceeds to name Richard the Seeker.
