I read this book only because I had to. I'm not a fan of the fantasy genre but since currently writing a piece of fantasy I needed some "good" example and Terry Goodking was highly recommended. What a delusion! There are almost no parallel story; suspense attempts are created only when talking about torture and violence (including sexual) towards children or the classic "monster"; characters are rigidly two dimensional. Lots of violence but very little love and sex and in my opinion you need to have a love story in plot like these. Most of all I didn't like the leading character aka the "hero": he kept crying, having a lot of doubts, suffering, definitely not the kind of hero you expect in a sword and sorcerer's story. First and last book of Terry Goodking....Continua
Long-winded and slow-paced. The TV show was much better. Good story, though.
i'm a fantasy nut so a book like this was perfect for me. it was a slow read but the amazing storyline filled with details made up for it. the ending was great. it left the reader with enough questions to want to pick up the second book of the series...which is exactly what i'm going to do....Continua
So much better than I thought it would be! (I also thought it was from the 70s, and instead it was written in the early 90s XD)
I'm very happy that I saw Legend of the Seeker before reading the books, because I think I would have hated it for all the differences XD and it's a nice tv series, so yay.
Also, I now have to read everything else there is to read of this series ♥
The best book I have ever read!
The way it's written is amazing, and captivates you on each page.
It's the type of book that causes you to feel a connection with the characters. It's full of battles, fantasy worlds and emotion.
I'd recommend this book to everyone.
