The Third Kingdom by Terry Goodkind
"Having read the entire series (well everything T.G. has written) I have to say that I'll have to go through and read it again because I went through it so fast. Fast paced with several "OH CRAP" moments. I really can't wait for more. "

“If the road is easy, you're likely going the wrong way.”
Terry Goodkind

“People are stupid. They will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they are afraid it might be true.”
Terry Goodkind, Wizard's First Rule

“I often hear people say that they read to escape reality, but I believe that what they’re really doing is reading to find reason for hope, to find strength. While a bad book leaves readers with a sense of hopelessness and despair, a good novel, through stories of values realized, of wrongs righted, can bring to readers a connection to the wonder of life. A good novel shows how life can and ought to be lived. It not only entertains but energizes and uplifts readers.”
Terry Goodkind

Eric Birk Thanks for becoming my Goodreads friend.

Hessa Al Ajmani Hello! I cannot express how happy I am to actually be friends with you (my favorite author) here on my favorite website and to see you responding to your readers' comments and reviews! I was wondering why you haven't started your own vlog... I think it'll be wonderful! I also wish you could come to Dubai for a book signing or a fan meeting. It'll be a dream come true if you did!


Theresa I'm very happy to be on your friends list.
I love the Sword of Truth series; that is
some of the most brilliant writing ever.
Thank you for keeping the bar high:))
