Plot Introduction (from the Wiki):

Richard Cypher's decision to help a woman in the Upper Ven near the Boundary between the Midlands and Westland creates more trouble than first appears. The woman, Kahlan Amnell, seeks the help of a wizard in the Westland, and she brings with her dark news from the other side of the Boundary: Darken Rahl, Ruler of D'Hara, has brought down the Boundary between D'Hara and the Midlands. This menacing ruler continues his dead father's quest for control by pressing war on the now vulnerable Midlands. Kahlan is attempting to find the great wizard who had left the Midlands for the Magic free Westlands due to the corruption of the government in his eyes, so as to have him Name a Seeker of Truth. The great wizard turns out to be Zeddicus Zu'l Zorrander, Richard's longtime friend, who then proceeds to name Richard the Seeker.

I still haven't gotten around to reading these. :( - Now that I have a smancy phone I should see how much it costs to dl them.

But re-reading this description - it reminds me how similar it starts to the Arthurian legend.

After SOT you still did not read them? When you were one of the main characters? :politegiggle: You should do it.

This series is one of my favorites of all time. And like SVS, I decided to read them due to playing rabbit's SoT game on the Piano. Wizard's First Rule is one of the best in the series (but my all time favorite is Faith of the Fallen).

That sounds good to me. I'm definitely interested in trying this series out after reading all of your praise for it. :)

ok - so I picked up a copy from the used bookstore a while back ago and just now finished it.

Is it weird that while I was reading it, my head kept replacing character's names for who played them in wabbit's game?

Also - does the fact that I was zed mean that wabbit thinks I'm obsessed with food? Cuz I can't help it I appreciate a well cooked meal.... :pout:

Also also - I enjoyed the book a lot. MUCH better than the lamely awesome tv show. I'll be picking up the second one at some point.

The TV show was a disgrace. I really wish they had done a better job with it, but instead they made a mockery of the story.

I've been toying with rereading Wizard's First Rule again because I love the book so much, but my husband has been trying to encourage me to read books I haven't read before. LOL! So maybe I'll try to get in a few "original" books then return to the SoT series. :politegiggle:
