A milestone of storytelling set in the world of The Sword of Truth, Debt of Bones is the story of young Abby's struggle to win the aid of the wizard Zedd Zorander, the most important man alive. Abby is trapped, not only between both sides of the war, but in a mortal conflict between two powerful men. For Zedd, who commands power most men can only imagine, granting Abby's request would mean forsaking his sacred duty. With the storm of the final battle about to break, both Abby and Zedd are caught in a desperate fight to save the life of a child...but neither can escape the shadow of an ancient betrayal. With time running out, their only choice may be a debt of bones. The world - for Zedd, for Abby, for everyone - will never again be the same. Download and start listening now!

    " Although this was a pretty short book overall, but it was actually really good! I enjoyed it immensely and am now even more stoked to read Terry's new prequal that is coming out! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephen | 2/13/2014

    " 2.5 stars. 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 2/8/2014

    " A prequel of sorts to the Sword of Truth series. Gives a snippet of insight into Zedd's early times as First Wizard. a good, quick read. I wanted more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dianna | 2/6/2014

    " was ok - loved the Series much better "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Derrick | 1/23/2014

    " short story sequel to the Sword of Truth series. About Zed and Abbey and how Zed raises the barriers between the lands. Interesting indeed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justin Allen | 1/20/2014

    " great small side story well done and new perspective "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 George | 1/5/2014

    " I didn't actually read it. The main series put me off do much I didn't want to risk it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 12/13/2013

    " Neat little back story to the Sword of Truth series - gives a new view of Zedd and how the boundaries came to be. Very quick, fun read for anyone interested in Goodkind's books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justine Hedman | 12/6/2013

    " Just a plain good fun read. After going through the etire series and getting to know Zed, it was fun to see him in his earlier years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 11/5/2013

    " A very short novella "prequel" to the Sword of Truth when Zedd was young. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Koumamo | 10/25/2013

    " Well It was a really nice reading, Evey body should actually read it before trying to Wizard's first rule. Because then you get a better understanding of where every character is going. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 6/11/2013

    " A short story about how the barriers originally went up. This book is written better then some of the novels in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kallie Desruisseaux | 5/19/2013

    " A really good 'off-shoot' mini-book in the Sword of Truth series. Fun story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chas Kimbrell | 8/18/2012

    " A very short prequel to the Sword of Truth series (perhaps too short) but, the book did give some interesting insight into Zedd as a young wizard. Not really a "must read" but, should be interesting for real fans of this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jolan | 6/27/2012

    " It wasn't as good as the rest of the series but I found it still very intresting. A small part on how Richard and Kahlan's amazing story began. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 6/2/2012

    " Too short. Wish it was longer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 4/13/2012

    " I read this novella after watching the first season of "Legend of the Seeker" and I've liked it. Not as much as I liked the TV show, but it was a good prequel. Now I'll watch the second season of the show and then go on reading "Blood of the Fold" ;) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krissie | 2/2/2012

    " I read this before and didn't realize it until the third or fourth paragraph. 'Cause I'm cool like that. So I guess it wasn't good enough for me to remember having read it the first time, but it was good enough that I picked it out twice. And I read it twice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sam | 12/14/2011

    " I liked how the debt turned out different than expected; it showed Zedd's great character and trust that had in people. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 12/1/2011

    " This is a short prequel to the Sword of Truth series. It is enjoyable, but I would not recommend it to someone who has not read the rest of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 9/25/2011

    " This was a really great peek into Zed's life! I like being able to kind of know where he's coming from. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wesley | 8/16/2011

    " A cute prequel. I enjoyed it the first time, but it's the only one of Goodkind's books that I didn't read five times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brianna | 6/26/2011

    " This is a really short story, and it was really cool because it showed Zedd as a younger wizard. Zedd easily being one of my favorite characters, I was quite happy to pick this book up and read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 5/23/2011

    " a nice little side bar from the main series, which explains some of the motivations and a very important past decision by one of the key characters in the Sword of Truth series.

    short but very enjoyable "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 4/25/2011

    " Unlike most, I actually read this early in the series instead of reading it last. It is important for a better understanding of several main characters. It was also a "quick read." Short and sweet. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carl | 4/2/2011

    " Terry Goodkind does a great job of flawlessly introducing you to the back story of a couple of the characters in his regular series.... I wish it hadn't ended. "
