    A milestone of storytelling set in the world of The Sword of Truth, Debt of Bones is the story of young Abby's struggle to win the aid of the wizard Zedd Zorander, the most important man alive. Abby is trapped, not only between both sides of the war, but in a mortal conflict between two powerful men. For Zedd, who commands power most men can only imagine, granting Abby's request would mean forsaking his sacred duty. With the storm of the final battle about to save the life of a child....

    Story

    I really liked this book. It filled in so many places and questions about Zed and his history. It gave a great explanation of how the great barriors were put up and why. It shows a playful side of wizard life in the wizards keep. There is a wonderful connection that is made around the confessors and their duties in the new world. If you are a fan of the Wizards First Rule and the Sword of truth series, you will enjoy learning some of the reasons why things are as they are in the midlands. I recomend this one.

    Story

    This is an incredable journey with the wife of the First Wizard, Magda Searus. She is taken through some of the most entangling, and engaging story telling I have read in a very long time. I think that Terry Goodkind found his muse again. This story makes so many questions that have been lingering in my mind answered with believable ease. The other books in the Sword of Truth series touch so rarely on the first confessor, yet they rely so heavly on the charactor of the confessor and Kahlans struggle with her duty and devotion to her calling. There are parts of the other books in the series where Magda Searus and her wizard, Merrit, are seen in large frescos painted on the ceiling in the confessors palace, yet their relationship to the world of the midlands is not fully explained. Now there is no more questions about how they played their part in the melding of the new world. This book takes the reader back to the first great war of the wizards, where so many of the weapons that Richard and Kahlan have to encounter were originally created. The reasons for these weapons is explained as well as why the wizards of the keep choose to create them. There is so much that is answered in this book, and so many new insights created. I found this book extreamly entertaining and well read. I had a tough time putting it down once I got going. The charactor of Magda Searus is explained so well, with all of her nuances. If you have read in to the Sword of Truth series more than a few books you will want to know these answers. The real name of wizard "Kolo" is given and explained, as well as the Sliph, the dream walkers, The Book of Counted Shadows, and so, so much more. Read this one and see if your not re-invigorated to read more of the series again.

    Tormented her entire life by inhuman voices, Jennsen seeks to end her intolerable agony. She at last discovers a way to silence the voices. For everyone else, the torment is about to begin. Richard Rahl and his wife, Kahlan, have been reunited after their long separation, but with winter descending and the paralyzing dread of an army of annihilation occupying their homeland, they must venture deep into a strange and desolate land.

    Story

    At least Jello has a flavoring added to it. This book is like Jello, it has no shape, no substance, no nutritional value at all. I was sucked into this book under the pretense that I was continuing on in the "Sword Of Truth" series. I could not have been any farther from the truth, and I am not a seeker. The only place in this book where Richard, Kahlan, Cara, etc.. return is in the last 50 pages, and even then, they do not move the story along at all. I feel that I have lost the 7 hours of my life it took to listen/read this tripe. Skip this one and read the last 50 pages in a library.

    When Derrick Storm needed to leave the CIA, he couldn't just retire. He had to fake his own death. So when his former boss calls in an old favor that will bring Storm out of early retirement and back to Washington to investigate a high-profile kidnapping, he knows there must be more at stake than the life of a senator's son. Working alongside, but not exactly with, bombshell FBI investigator April Showers, Storm must make sense of a confusing flurry of ransom notes and a complicated web of personal relationships and international politics.

    I was a huge fan of the Nikki Heat books and was looking forward to the new Storm series coming out. I hope that all of the "Castle" books are eventually written and released. This trilogy was very entertaining and was a great introduction to the storm series.
