My most sincere thanks to LC Doug, who generously sent me the first three books of Terry Goodkind’s “Sword of Truth” series.

Yes, I loves me a good tale of swordsmanship and chivalry, and it came highly recommended from LC Daealdric, so I put it on the wish list.

And now, thanks to LC Doug, I have it and you won’t see me for a month or so :happy_tb:

    Misha, It’s a great fiction series. Great read, I’ve read each installment, and await the final one due out sometime in the next year.

    You’ll be hooked after the first installment …so fair warning!

    Read the Wheel of Time series by Jordan. Read it slow though, the 12th book isn’t due out until 2009 :(

    The Sword of Truth is a great series, but the last few books have been completely different than the first few. While they are good books, they don’t (to me) reach the same caliber as his first book.

    Sire,

    Unless your reading tastes are a lot less discriminating than mine (easily possible. I’m REALLY picky about my reading material), you have received the only three books of the series worth reading.

    By the end of Book 3, Mr Goodkind pretty much ran out of plot, and Deus ex machina only works as a resolution *so* many times.

    The first three books are incredibly well written, though. Wizard’s First Rule has plot twists and turns you won’t expect, characters you’ll grow attached to, and a writing style that will cause you to lose track of days on end. Right around Blood of the Fold, the characters will start to bore you, the plot twists are predictable, and the writing style hints at even the author being bored by the book. Read the three you have, and then, make the decision of whether or not to spend the time to read the later books. I decided not to. I enjoyed the three books immensely. It was the fourth and later books I didn’t like.

    Your Rottieness,

    I hope you enjoy an author who is absolutely BRUTAL to his characters - ’cause that’s what Goodkind is.

    (I love ‘em - my friend Jeff couldn’t continue - said it was just too painful the way Richard never seems to catch a break)

    Shoot, Lord Nazh, if longevity of a series is a key factor in a good one (play along for a sec, wouldya?) Weber’s 19th Honorverse novel is due out EOY or early next year. Should give you plenty of time to get through the rest before it comes out. And btw it IS actually a good series, longevity or no. David Weber is now officially my favorite author ever. Now that I finally broke free of “star libtards R us” I’m finding there are a lot of other decent authors out there — Eric Flint, S.M. Stirling, Elizabeth Moon, and many more — but so far, Weber blows them all away. Though Moon’s Vatta’s War series is showing signficant promise… and I’ve seen good reviews of David Drake’s Lt. Leary stuff which I plan to check out for myself shortly.

    Hmm, come to think of it, if you want to try David Weber out on the cheap, you may be interested to know that he has given out permission for ebook CDs containing his collected works to be freely shared. His (and Baen’s) intentions are basically the old shareware model. I only bought his Prince Roger series after reading the ebooks and deciding that I liked it more than I thought I did early in the first book. I found out about this system back when I bought the hardcover of At All Costs, and while I’d glady offer a copy to anybody who wanted one (yes it’s literally written on the CD that you can freely copy it) somebody with far more bandwidth than I had an even better idea…

    http://baencd.thefifthimperium.com/

    There’s also a few John Ringo CDs and even an old David Drake CD there… possibilities, possibilities.

    I liked “Faith of the Fallen” and “Naked Empire” also, books 6 and 8 respectively.
    I also like George R.R. Martin’s “Song of Ice and Fire” series. The man is ruthless, he’s not afraid to kill off a main character.

    While Mrs. M’s suit is a lot more practical, I prefer BC’s definition more…

    Misha,

    I think that you’ll enjoy the first three novels in the series. I’ve been reading the Sword of Truth books for about a decade now, and I still enjoy them.

    For the record, Wizard’s First Rule applies to everything: people are stupid. Rosie and her legion of admirers offer evidence to that effect every day.

    I didn’t promote TWoT on it’s longevity :) I just said that it will be a long time before the next book. The series is itself amazing, but the women characters will rub you the wrong way in almost every chapter :)

    Well, actually, I wasn’t either. Maybe I need to add TWoT to my list of things to check out. And I would suggest you should add the honorverse. And while there’s no pictures, I’m sure BC and co could probably manage to pervert it enough to appeal to them… the title character is an attractive, smart ‘young’ lady… ;)

    The first three books are more action oriented and the later books tend to go more into the characters’ lives and past. I really like the Mord-Sith, especially Cara. She sounds smokin’ hot.
