Publisher's Summary

A publishing event: number-one New York Times best-selling author Terry Goodkind turns in a new direction and delivers a stunningly original thriller.

Turning 27 may be terrifying for some, but for Alex, a struggling artist living in the midwestern United States, it is cataclysmic. Inheriting a huge expanse of land should have made him a rich and happy man; but something about this birthday, his name, and the beautiful woman whose life he just saved, has suddenly made him - and everyone he loves - into a target. A target for extreme and uncompromising violence.

In Alex, Terry Goodkind brings to life a modern hero in a whole new kind of high-octane thriller.

    "Fun Modern Day Fantasy Thriller"

    Fun book. Its the audiobook version of a page turner. Fun story but not really that original. Lots of action but it gets to be pretty hard to swallow... a artist that basically turns into Rambo overnight. The magic elements were fun but I wish there was a bit more. Finally the ending was a bit flat and cliched after the action ended. The reader was awesome. I am not a fan of this author's fantasy books but this one is an exception because of the modern real world setting. If you need something to make the time pass quick this is it.

    "can't wait till the next one"

    I injoyed this book. It gave me a new out look on the Rahl blood line. I can not wait till the next book comes out. i hope it feels in all the gaps in the lives of the Alex and Jax. This is a must read for the fans of the Sword of Truth books.

    "Eh - ok"

    I liked the part that was inspired to some degree by One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, but beyond that, not the best Terry has done.
    If you like Goodkind, you'll probably be ok with this.

    "Outstanding!!!! 10 out of 10 **********"

    If you have read/listened to the Sword of Truth books then you must buy this one. Telling anything more will give too much away.

    My one question is when is Terry's next book coming out :)

    "Favoret Author, Bad Book"

    I can't believe this is written by the same author as the sword of truth series. The characters are not consistent, the plot is far from strong and the antagonist is extremely generic.

    Terry what happened?

    "horrible, do not waste your money"

    this book is a waste of time and money, i don't know what I was thinking. the main character seems to be a complete imbecile, he cannot intelligently comprehend several things that are obvious and predictable to the reader. poor character development, one minute he's painting lame nature scenes and all of the sudden he takes out a glock with SIX extra clips, yes six!, and starts killing bad guys without flinching or remorse, tha characters are stupid, the story is stupid and I cannot recommend this crap.
