This is my first time reading any of the Sword of Truth series and I am intrigued. However, the Mother Confessor is fascinating, so is the world of magic and war between good and evil that is raging between the D'Harans lead by Lord Rahl and the rest of the world. It also gives us some idea about the origins and way of operation of the Mord-Sith, who have a fetish for kinky red leather outfits, long braids and some pain inflicting: A good look at the young Zedd and why he was the most powerful wizard in the world and yet, his closest people called him The Trickster I can't wait to delve into the series for real and discover everything it holds View all 4 comments.
Dec 22, Stephen rated it it was ok Shelves: novellas , fantasy , Decent story set in the "Sword of Truth" universe and focusing on Wizard Zedd and the creation of the boundaries. Interesting background for fans of the series but I would not start here if you have not read the first couple books of the series.
Dec 22, Gavin rated it liked it Shelves: fantasy. This was an interesting but not overly essential novella in the SoT series. It took us back to the time of the founding of the boundaries and gave us a glimpse into the battle between the Midlands and D'Hara that made that a necessity. The story was OK. We followed the tale of Abby as she sought an audience with the wizards in the Wizard's Keep in Aydindril.
Her daughter and husband had been abducted by the D'Harans. They were part of a whole border town the D'Harans were holding as hostage to g This was an interesting but not overly essential novella in the SoT series. They were part of a whole border town the D'Harans were holding as hostage to get the young first wizard Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander to trade his life for their own.
It was a desperate ploy as the D'Harans were in retreat but far from defeated. Abby had come to plead with Zedd to take the deal and save her family. Zedd had plans of his own! We got the whole story from Abby's POV. It was interesting as her plight was a desperate one as she sought help to save her family from an awful fate at the hands of the D'Harans. She was an easy enough character to root for as it was easy to understand her motivations and desperation.
We got a tiny bit of a glimpse into how the Midlands worked in the era before all the wizards and confessors were wiped out by Darken Rahl. We also got to glimpse the Mother Confessor of the time and we got to meet a young Zedd. It was interesting to see him from Abby's POV as we witnessed him having to weigh the individual plea of hers, and those of others, against the fate of the many he was responsible for in the Midlands.
The end of the tale had a few fun twists. All in all in was a fun glimpse into the past and a very quick read compared to the typical SoT tale. Rating: 3. This was not long enough to earn a high rating so I'm going to round downward. Audio Note: This was narrated by Sam Tsoutsouvas. I have to admit I was really disappointed by his awful performance of the audio. I've been listening to the old N. B versions of the SoT series which are narrated by the fantastic Nick Sullivan and compared to that this was utter trash.
Sam Tsoutsouvas bounced between reading this in a complete monotone and reading this like he was a 90 year old overacting a bedtime story to toddlers. He really sucked the life out of this novella and likely cost it a star in the ratings.
The guy even mispronounced D'Hara. It took me ages to figure out Darren's Empire was actually D'Hara ffs! Why are the commercial versions of the SoT audios so shit? May 03, Mark rated it it was ok Shelves: fantasy.

Mammoth numbers of people died but in that weird way in which magic serves to anaesthetize readers against the brutality of mass murder by 'doing it with big lights and otherworldy flashings'.
Treachery, well i would hardly say the story teemed with it. The heroine showed herself to be a bit of a trait'rous bitch and led the Head Wizard into a trap but then thought better of it and helped him but then ballsed Publisher's weekly wrote "Teeming with violence, treachery and intrigue. The heroine showed herself to be a bit of a trait'rous bitch and led the Head Wizard into a trap but then thought better of it and helped him but then ballsed up her little job of keeping someone safe who was then killed but no wait, as if by magic the dead one wasn't really cos it was all a trick by the hero so he could slaughter oodles of people with his big lights and rushing waves of death.
Everyone who was good was saved, not a single one of the good characters was killed and, to be honest, it read rather like a story written by a child, one who had a good skill for descriptive passages certainly but not overly gifted in the plot writing gene.
I felt Goodkind was trying too hard to create the idea of levels of magic and sorcery and I was unconvinced. The First Wizard was shown to be amazingly clever and wise by the fact that he could carry out lots of conversations at the same time Being able to multi-task is one thing, encouraging people to talk across each other, butt in to others' conversations and flit from one chat to another is quite another.
It is the actions of a social butterfly and I do not care how much magic you have at your fingertips or how many books you, in your capacity as the chief magic-bloke, have the right to read which nobody else can, it is still rude and arrogant so stop doing it. No, not for me. A bit of something and nothing The illustrations were simple and mistlike by a man called Keith Parkinson which I liked but the story was a big disappointment.

Debt of Bones (Sword of Truth Series Prequel)
Might have been more enjoyable if I had already read the series that this is related to. A bit thin. Good beginning, made me interested in Abby and her mission, but her behavior at a key point seemed A little laboured, particularly for s book of this size - on several occasions we got to hear the same thing said three times but slightly differently, and I found Abby's thoughts and reactions to be Debt of Bones.
