More About the Author

Goodkind was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, where he also attended art school, one of his many interests on the way to becoming a writer. Besides a career in wildlife art, he has been a cabinet maker, violin maker, and he has done restoration work on rare and exotic artifacts from around the world -- each with its own story to tell, he says. In 1983 Goodkind moved to the forested mountains he loves. There, in the woods near the ocean, he built the house where he and his wife, Jeri, live, and came at last to tell his own stories.

Having read Wizards First Rule and Stone of Tears in a week-end I was eager to continue the saga, and was not disappointed. The story carries on well from Stone of Tears and quickly your in the thick of the action. One thing I like about the Sword of Truth series is that each book stands well on its own. True, you ought to read them in order, but you don't have to pick up the next one to see what happens, each is a complete story. I also found the ending exciting and well written (unlike other authors where the ending seems to 'go off on one' so to speak) matching the pace of the book.
My only grumble about the series is that almost all of the ideas are ripped off from Robert Jordans 'Wheel of Time'. Which if you have the time to wade through (nine books with ten on the way) is the best thing I've read. Each of Goodkinds books seem to introduce new Jordan concepts, so much so I found myself trying to predict the next one.
If you've not read Jordan your in for a treat, if you have then it will make your laugh ... but no matter what your in for a great ride.

I was recommended Wizards First Rule a few years ago but found it a pure rip off of other fantasy series, most notably RJ's Wheel of Time series.

In between other books I did squeeze in book 2 - Stone of Tears ? - but again was not particurlarly impressed. However I have recently read Blood of the Fold and for me it was the best in the series so far. It has probably been 2 years or so since I read S of T, so any rehash of previous storylines probably enhanced the enjoyment of the current instalment rather than hindered it as other readers have complained of.
I will probably wait a while before buying the 4th book in the series but I am looking forward to reading this one rather than reading it because, well I've read the others....

These books keep on drawing the reader in and the introduction and development of new characters ensures that the reader continues to invest in their future. Relevant facts from the previous books are cleverly woven into the narrative so that each individual book can be thoroughly enjoyed!

Goodkind has done it again. What an imagination! An unstoppably good read. The stories are superb and brilliantly written.

As I had previously stated before, I started to read the Sword of Truth series after watching the tv series and wanted to see if the books could be better, the answer continues to be yes. The Blood of the Fold is an exciting read and revolves mostly around the central characters, Richard, Khalen and Zedd. Goodkind could carry on with the same style that has been seen in the previous books, but once again he changes the rhythm of the storyline and gives you more action and suspense. The new order are now the new enemy and bring a new meaning to cruelty and torture.

If you like fantasy adventure books then you will be overwhelmed when reading the series and sure to like this one. The development of the characters is first rate as is the story line. I would strongly recommend this series to anyone with an open imagination; it is one book that cannot be easily put down.

The characters however fantastic leap into life and enthrall the reader with the detail and variety of their personalities. So many different facets to this and the other books. I have already started the next one in the series.

Format: Paperback
Goodkind shows no fear in creating sweeping epic struggles in this series and the ante is upped once again, where the evil of two power hungry leaders bear down upon Richard Cypher and his companions. Each faction has its own diabolical designs upon the Middle Kingdoms and there are very few new additions for the cast, which makes it easy to pick this up and engage with the story early on (as long as you are reading the Sword of Truth series in order).

As before, Goodkind creates a large scale war, whilst concentrating upon the parts played by the figureheads and their fated paths. Blood of the Fold offers a compelling plot, however there are a few unconvincing and improbable contrivances that derail its best intentions. Existing readers will understand that the author is prepared to stretch their belief in exchange for plot twists and opportunities to add action to the story. Near the end there is so much happening it feels like a Director's Cut, with alternative endings being played simultaneously.

Criticisms aside, Blood of the Fold is certainly entertaining and offers some unique twists on the busy fantasy genre. Strong narrative and engaging characters make this a lengthy, yet worthwhile, read.

An excellent compelling read, the 3rd in the epic saga about Richard Rahl, Zed, Cara and Kahlan....
Had to force myself to put it down. Too many nights sat up to 3am because I didn't notice the time passing. Wonderful. When finished I instantly wanted to sit and read the next in the series

Having not long finished this the third of the series I can honestly say that I am even more eagere to continue with this enthralling series.

The development of the characters is first rate as is the story line. This saga just keeps on pulling you along at a breakneck speed with numerous twists and turns and sub-plots.

I would strongly reccomend this series to anyone with an open imagination, a good deal of time,( this cannot be easily put down), and a stout heart.
