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...but neither can escape the shadow of an ancient betrayal.
With time running out, their only choice may be a debt of bones. The world - for Zedd, for Abby, for everyone - will never again be the same.

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.

Great story about Zed, a young Zed. Tells the story of the boundaries,how they got put up. Zed is a powerful funny start up first wizard. A great book and short,a sTart to finish book.
It's fairly common for authors to write prequels to their long series. Some prequels tell important stories that help to lay a good foundation for what they have already written about but never revealed in the series. In this case, although the story was interesting, it really didn't enhance the series. I'm not convinced the book was worth reading. If it had been included with a few more background stories, I would say the value (price) of the story would have been justified. Otherwise it comes close to disrespecting the loyal readers of the series.
The reader was excellent. He stayed fairly true to the pronunciation of used by most of the other readers of the series. The only divergence was in how he pronounced Zedd Zorander's last name.
I did not think this book had enough good character development and all of the information was dumped on the reader in one small part of the book instead of in sequence as building blocks. The overall idea of the story is good, but the delivery was not well done. Wish I had something better to say about this book.
Yes! This is a good prequel to the Sword of Truth Series. It is a bit short though. I would have loved to get to know more of the characters during that time. But, Zedd alone makes up for this. It was great to know the younger wizard.
Zedd! Bags! He is truly the Trickster!
His performance was spot on!
It was wonderful to hear more about Zed in his prime. We get a glimpse of him at the height of his power and I hope Goodkind follows up with more of the same. A great, but short, read perfect for a lunchtime break or a day of
Watch for the quiet moment when Panis Rahl gets what he deserves.
This book is a prequel that has very little to no value to the overall Richard and Kalin story. I wish I had my credit back...
I have read the last ten terry Goodkind book and this is a great addition.
this book stand on it own need not to know that it prequail to thesword of truth books
Near the top
There's a good twist at the end.
Not quite. I'm an iPod man.
A nice bit of back story to the Sword of Truth Series. This world is rich enough for a few other series - but I will settle for a lot more of these...
