There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I am a Goodkind fan regarding this whole storyline, but this has to be one of the better books I have read out of all of them. Drop back a few years; this book came out, but it was only offered in electronic format. I can only guess that there was a battle somewhere.

Maybe Tor pissed Terry off? My brother actually saw it on shelf somewhere and called to give me smack about not telling him about. Shock ensued, book arrived two days later and wow. You can say details times and not hit it right when describing this book.

The First Confessor: The Legend of Magda Searus: Terry Goodkind: : Books

Many times in the Sword of Truth set you hear backdrop of the old wars, or history from some old tome. This book fills in many of those details and does something even better; leaves some out and even adds to them. I sincerely hope that means another book to touch on the characters in this one. I could write a novel myself on my thoughts but I do not want the story shared for you here. Share it with clnfessor. The events played out here are a crucial part of the back story of the Sword of Truth series.

Feeling confdssor and alone, Magda sets out to commit suicide in the same manner as her husband, by throwing herself off the wall of the Keep firwt falling to her death a thousand feet below. At the last possible moment, she finds a note left by Baraccus, magra her to find truth. In the chapters that follow, the reader is given a firrst look at the events laid out as backstory during the Sword wearus Truth series.

How the war between the Old World and the New was first started, the making of the Sword of Truth, the hiding of the Temple of the Winds, the creation of the D’Haran bond, the dreamwalkers, the traitors in the Keep, and the reasoning behind the creation of the Confessors.

And other events even further back in history are hinted at. This was an excellent read. I’ve read each book by Goodkind in one sitting, and this was no exception. This book explains many of the secrets behind the Sword of Truth series and gives the characters mentioned in the series their own stories.

Even though this wasn’t about the main characters, Richard and Kahlan, I mgada just as interested in the characters and eager to know more about them. The only two problems I had with this book were that now I feel frist need to go back and read the whole series again and now I want to know more about cirst other events mentioned in the series.

Goodkind feels the urge to write more of the backstory. A note about the format: Many of his loyal fans seem to be quite upset that it’s only available in e-format, as they don’t have the necessary e-readers. Terry Goodkind wanted to tell the story in his own way, without the limitations imposed by a publisher. Apparently, he’s one of the first big name authors to venture into the realms of self-publishing.

His reasons for doing so can be found on his website at terrygoodkind. As reviewers, we tend to shy away from author self-pubs. Many that we’ve read have had lots of grammatical errors, formatting issues, continuity problems, or just plain poor editing. I didn’t find a single thing seqrus in this book. That’s not to say there aren’t problems, just that I didn’t find them, and I usually do.


If you’re leery of reading this because it’s a self-pub, don’t be. It could easily have been printed by any of the major publishers and I wouldn’t have noticed any difference while reading it. Searhs Edition Verified Purchase.

But boy, something bad happened here. The story was there, buried among really bad and repetitive writing, page after page of regurgitating the same thing. This was by far the most annoying for me.

It felt as the story was being dragged along, because for page after page there was nothing really happening, for example, in think 5 pages of constantly sayingbMagda needs to rest in between other dialogue is quite excessive.

This felt like first draft, brainstorm writing. The characters were very flat, Magda and Merrit both, they cobfessor.

The First Confessor: The Legend of Magda Searus

They had no depth to them besides wanting to do the right thing for the truth. And they repeated this ad nauseam. Besides that they had no other character traits, oh and they were beautiful. The bad guy was obvious, which ok but if I could tell immediately, how did he have everyone else fooled, can we see that?

And how could he possibly have the Magda fooled even a little. So the reveal that he was the bad guy There were like 5 characters in the story.

The new elements of magic were pretty cool and creative, some of the keep descriptions were detailed like the catacombs. The last fifth of the book was good. Underwhelmed and disappointed overall.

This book is a prequel to the eleven book Sword of Truth series, but I would say that you have to thd all of those books first to fully appreciate this one. If you read this book as a stand alone you would not be able to appreciate the significance of all that happens here. Some thing might be spoilers if you read this first. In this case it’s firsg to stick to publication order. So much back story to Sword of Truth and the origin of so many things is explained here.

The creation of the actual Sword of Truth, the creation of the first Confessor, the Book of Counted shadows, the bond and devotion to Lord Rahl and why magic especially subtractive magic started to die out.

There’s even an explanation of how the Confsssor in post Sword of Truth books came into existence. If you have read the main series then this is probably a must read. I definitely found it to be one of the better books from Goodkind. As a side note I used whispersync cnofessor this one and flew through it in about a week.
