Description

Turning twenty-seven may be terrifying for some, but for Alex, a struggling artist living in the Midwest, it is cataclysmic. Something about this birthday, his name, and the beautiful woman whose life he has just saved has suddenly made him-and everyone he loves-a target. A target for extreme and uncompromising violence...

From the Paperback edition.

    It's really good despite the negative reviews.

    While not as fresh and interesting as the sword of truth series was it held my attention well enough. Reminiscent of the same themes to the point (and sometimes over it) of copying the general plot and background ideology of the former series, it managed to have a crisper concise feeling to its plot that reminded me of the first Goodkind novel before it flowered into the full SoT septilliogy. Will appeal to fans of his works more, but will hopefully draw new readers into a rich and fun universe that he's painted.
  • It makes my world more complete

    Adding the Law of Nines to the rest of the rules only makes sense. Temple of Wind touched on the rule and Law of Nines completes the rule.
  • Fun twists

    The book had a few fun twists that were unforeseen. It vaguely played with ideas from Richard's series. I wouldn't mind reading a second book on Alex.
  • Excellent.

    While I enjoyed the throwbacks to the original SoT series, the exhausting parallels between Alex/Richard, Jax/Kahlan, Ben/Zedd, etc. seemed completely contrived--I knew what would happen plot-wise before it happened. Nothing surprised me, which was disappointing since I loved the original series and it kept me on my toes the whole time. Formulas and tropes, while useful, make for stale storytelling. Overall, I'd rather read for depth of character (which is the best part of Goodkind's work) rather than have this entire plot resolved in one book. Has he run out of lessons to teach and interesting/lovable characters to share? I hope not. Also, editing on this platform needs improvement.
  • Great book

    If you're a fan of Richard & Kahlan, then this book will not disappoint! I had read several harsh, bad views but I decided to give it a chance anyway & boy, I am so happy that I did! Incredible adventure, a captivating love story & incredible attention to detail; all characteristics that this book does not lack. I highly recommend it!

    If you never thought you could enjoy a book about invaders from another world, try this one! You will be happily surprised and continually engaged with characters that leave you wishing for more. Next?

    Exciting story but the characters lacked depth and didn't have the power of the characters from the SoT series. I enjoyed the books story but it didn't have the pulling power to bring me into the story like the early SoT books... All in all I would suggest reading it but it isn't my favorite terry goodkind book.
