Terry Goodkind – Wasteland


Richard’s gaze traced all of the passageways, the rooms, the circular halls, the dead ends, the entrapments, the lateral routes, the complex of twinned and tripled passageways, checking, hoping he was wrong.

He wasn’t.

“We’re in trouble,” he said.

Richard Rahl and Kahlan Amnell are fighting on all fronts. The Golden Goddess, Collector of Worlds, has infiltrated the People’s Palace, able to insinuate herself into the minds of those without the gift of magic.

Richard can trust no-one but the gifted. So, when Vika, one of his sworn Mord-Sith bodyguards is abducted, he has to get her back. His determination will lead him and Kahlan deep into the labyrinthine heart of the People’s Palace – the Wasteland – and into more danger than they have ever faced before.

“The Sword of Truth series was my masterwork. Yet, life for these characters goes on after the conclusion of that series. For years readers have been asking about Richard and Kahlan’s children. This is that story.” (Terry Goodkind)

In 1994, Wizard’s First Rule introduced Richard Cypher, a young woodsman seeking answers and vengeance in the aftermath of his father’s murder, and Kahlan Amnell, a mysterious young woman pursued by a bloodthirsty tyrant’s assassins.

The Sword of Truth is one of the most ambitious fantasy series ever written. It was a decades-long masterwork that has been translated into 20 languages and sold 26 million copies. After 16 volumes and one novella, it concluded in 2016 with Warheart.

The Children of D’Hara picks up immediately after the conclusion of the Sword of Truth series. The story will be told in installments. Wasteland is the third novella.

User Review:

connotation cranky

Now, this one finally reads like a Sword of Truth tale. The first 2 are excellent, but this is better. Don’t like the cliff-hanger, but Witches Oath will resolve that. Hope it is published soon, & at a reasonable price . . .
