In the earlier book, Seeker of Truth Richard Cypher tricked the sorcerer Darken Rahl by using Wizard's First Rule (that people are stupid and can be easily misled) into opening the wrong Box of Orden. Though this saved humanity from the evil mage's tyrannies, it also tore the veil between worlds, so the diabolical Keeper of the Underworld can now reach through and seize permanent control of the living. The horror of captivity themes of the first book are not lost as Goodkind explores other aspects of desolation and war. Like the first book, this is not for the faint of heart but if you can stomach ultra-violence and intense themes this is another extraordinary book.

Goodkind Terry - скачать бесплатно все книги автора . Книги 1-14 из 14. Blood of the Fold. An Epic of Two WorldsIn a world as rich and real as our own, Richard Rahl and Kahlan Amnell stand against the ancient forces which besiege the New World - forces so terrible that when last they threatened, they could only be withstood by sealing off the Old World from whence they came. With and seven subsequent masterpieces, Terry Goodkind has thrilled readers worldwide with the unique sweep of his storytelling.

In Wizard's First Rule, Richard Cypher's world was turned upside down. Once a simple woods guide, Richard was forced to become the Seeker of Truth, to save the world from the vile dominance of Darken Rahl, the most viciously savage and powerful wizard the world had ever seen. He was joined on this epic quest by his beloved Kahlan, the only survivor among the Confessors, who brought a powerful but benevolent justice to the land before Rahl's evil scourge. Aided by Zedd, the last of the wizards who opposed Rahl, they were able to cast him into the underworld, saving the world from the living hell of life under Rahl. But the veil to the underworld has been torn, and Rahl, from beyond the veil, begins to summon a sinister power more dreadful than any he has wielded before. Horrifying creatures escape through the torn veil, wreaking havoc on the unsuspecting world above. If Rahl isn't stopped, he will free the Keeper itself, an evil entity whose power is so vast and foul that once freed, it can never again be contained.

There are a few sections of the book that are annoyingly redundant. As if the same concept or sentence is repeated 3-4 times, slightly differently, over a couple of pages or even paragraphs. By no means am I a grammar nazi, but that, in addition to the numerous typos, was distracting enough to take away from the experience at times. I imagine it was just lazy editing, which is unfortunate.

Because this book is touching at the very least, and can change the way you look at life at best. Sure, it's a series about swords and magic, but I truly believe that it could have any other theme with the same sets of circumstances and have the same effect. There are some situations in the book that had me sitting back for the better part of an hour, mulling things over in my head or comparing them to my own life. I hear this takes a dark turn to self righteousness past book 5 or so, but I'll just have to see. If that's the case, I don't mind putting the series down and just enjoying what I've read up to this point; it's that good.

If I had a complaint, it would be the sheer amount of rape content in this book. Not that it was overly disturbing or graphic, he made the point without making it unreadable. But then he did it again. And again. And again. To the point where I started feeling bad for something I wouldn't ever do or think of doing; made to feel like crap just because I'm a man. We get more than enough of that with today's society, I could have done without all of it in this book. Or at least some redeeming qualities of the good men in the book brought out, instead of it being so seemingly one sided (besides Richard, who it seems can do no wrong in any part of his life).

He did an excellent job tying in to the first book, in my opinion. This one could basically just start off as the next chapter from the previous book's last, with no more explanation of the first story than absolutely necessary. Overall, an excellent follow-up if you've read the first one, and you should definitely pick it up!

If you enjoyed the intensity of the first book and if you were wondering if it could be carried forward this provides a decisive YES. The horror of captivity themes of the first book are not lost as Goodkind explores other aspects of desolation and war. Like the first book, this is not for the faint of heart but if you can stomach ultra-violence and intense themes this is another extraordinary book.

This series must be read in order. The first book is Wizard's Firs Rule. This is the second book. I can't wait to read Blood Of The Fold!

With Darken Rahl defeated and in the hands of the Keeper it seems like things are finally falling into place for Kahlan and Richard. Unfortunately magic always has a price,and violating the Wizard's Second Rule carries steep penalties. The veil between the world of the Living and the world of the Dead has been torn. Will Richard and Kahlan be able to marry in front of the Mud People before they have too start yet another epic quest? Or will their happiness be torn away by duty yet again? What is happening to Richard? Why are the spirits inciting violence and hate? Can the world be made right? Or will it all fall to the Keeper?

I know these books have been around for some time now and I know that there is a lot to be said both positively and negatively about them, but honestly, despite being annoyed by the love story from time to time, I find myself reading page after page and book after book. All in all, it’s an engaging story with memorable characters and settings. I cry, I laugh, I feel suspense. It really is an adventure to read this series.

It's a very good series so far (I'm only on book 3 currently). How to put this delicately - although the book has a great story and is very well written, there is an excessive amount of detailed female violence in the first three+ books. It's an adult book sure, but it's a pointless amount and is excessively detailed on top of it. Just something to consider. It is the only thing I dislike about this series, but it's a borderline deal breaker.

My love of fantasy sprung from the sword of truth series. So many twists and turns within the story. So many small hints of what is to come. Once you had read the series read it again and you will be in awe of the masterpiece that Terry has written.

I think I enjoy this book more as a re-read, I can relax and know that the story will work itself out, without worrying about the complications.

Richard has not yet fully come to terms with who he is, and just wants to marry Kahlan and return to a simpler life. Maybe it won't be so simple since she's the Mother Confessor, but still, no more races against death. Yeah right.

Richard's magic is waking up and he has no idea how to wield it. To save him, Kahlan turns Richard over to the Sisters of the Light, sorceresses from the Old World who train wizards. Unfortunately, neither Kahlan or Richard knows that home of the Sisters, the Palace of the Prophets is a time-spell, and Richard will be there for 200 plus years! Also, there are Sisters of the Dark, hoping to open the veil and break the Keeper free. Richard allowed the veil to be torn when he tricked Darken Rahl into opening one of the boxes of Orden.

A new force is sweeping the Midlands - the Imperial Army, and they're out to destroy magic, and are basically just dicks. Good think Kahlan was trained by her warrior king father, since she helps a ragtag group of young army men fight off the forces. Too bad there is more evil awaiting her in Aydindril (I'm sure that's spelled wrong).

Where's Zedd? Well Zedd and Adie were afflicted by subtractive magic and are dying. To save themselves, they may lose their identities, and their magic.

Sound confusing? Yes, but read the book, it is much better than I can possibly explain here.
