The masterpiece that started Terry Goodkind's New York Times bestselling epic Sword of Truth
In the aftermath of the brutal murder of his father, a mysterious woman, Kahlan Amnell, appears in Richard Cypher's forest sanctuary seeking help . . . and more. His world, his very beliefs, are shattered when ancient debts come due with thundering violence.
In a dark age it takes courage to live, and more than mere courage to challenge those who hold dominion, Richard and Kahlan must take up that challenge or become the next victims. Beyond awaits a bewitching land where even the best of their hearts could betray them. Yet, Richard fears nothing so much as what secrets his sword might reveal about his own soul. Falling in love would destroy them--for reasons Richard can't imagine and Kahlan dare not say.
In their darkest hour, hunted relentlessly, tormented by treachery and loss, Kahlan calls upon Richard to reach beyond his sword--to invoke within himself something more noble. Neither knows that the rules of battle have just changed . . . or that their time has run out.
Wizard's First Rule is the beginning. One book. One Rule. Witness the birth of a legend.

"While the book has a childish start and the villains are non-traditional, the plot, unlike many fantasy books today, is very straightforward.The character dynamic between the main characters is tense, funny, and even frightening. Perhaps a positive and a negative of the book is that secrets within each character give an essence of mystery until circumstances reveal them, though they do seem convenient at times. This book has ups and downs, but if your a reader who is getting a little tried of convoluted plots and back stories, this series will have you read one book and then immediately crave the next."
