9780007145607: Chainfire (The Sword of Truth)

The next book in the Sword of Truth series from bestselling author Terry Goodkind. Fantasy adventure on a grand scale featuring the popular wizard-hero Richard Cypher. The Sword of Truth is Terry Goodkind's wonderfully creative, seamless, and stirring epic fantasy set in a fascinating world rich in detail, history and incredible violence. Reluctant hero turned magical warrior Richard Rahl has long since learned the wizard's first rule (People are stupid and will believe almost anything) and accepted his fate. With his beloved Kahlan Amnell, the last Mother Confessor, he has battled unearthly adversaries, military foes, the Underworld, the malign and wild magic of the Old World, even the elements themselves. Now Terry Goodkind, acclaimed and superlatively gifted storyteller, delivers another thrilling novel, with all the complexity and taut characterization we've come to expect from this master of fantasy.

PRAISE FOR THE WORK OF TERRY GOODKIND

"Outstanding...Characters who actually behave like adults. Highly recommended."
--San Diego Union-Tribune

"Goodkind's greatest triumph: the ability to introduce instantly identifiabel characters. His heroes, like us, are not perfect. Instead, each is flawed in ways that strengthen rather than weaken their impact."
--SFX

"Few writers have Goodkind's power of creation."
--Publishing News

"Teeming with violence, treachery, and intrigue."
--Publishers Weekly

"Eminently readable."
--Booklist

"A tour de force of mesmerizing storytelling."
--Romantic Times

About the Author:

Goodkind was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, where he also attended art school, one of his many interests on the way to becoming a writer. Besides a career in wildlife art, he has been a cabinet maker, violin maker, and he has done restoration work on rare and exotic artifacts from around the world -- each with its own story to tell, he says. In 1983 Goodkind moved to the forested mountains he loves. There, in the woods near the ocean, he built the house where he and his wife, Jeri, live, and came at last to tell his own stories.
