All Michael Hollister wanted was death. What he got was time travel. Convicted of murder, and with nothing left to live for, Michael commits suicide in his jail cell in 1977, then opens his eyes in 1966, in his eight-year-old body, with all memories of his previous life intact. His first thoughts are of the dark intentions of his father. When the man who raised him once again tries to do the unthinkable, Michael has a chance to right his childhood's greatest wrong. But, can he do that without becoming a killer all over again?

I am surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. because I like the author found myself hating Michael Hollister by the end of book 1. Then the author decides to make me root for Michael Hollister OMG! Boy did I ever find myself rooting for a guy that I truly hated by the end of book 1 the guy was an animal. The author does a great job of describing what made Michael Hollister tick and why he was so angry. To say I enjoyed this book is an understatement I absolutely loved this book and love the story of redemption it tells. I will recommend it to anyone who feels Unworthy of forgiveness.

I have read every book Terry Goodkind has written. I was not disappointed in this one! It was a departure from what most readers are used to from Mr Goodkind. However it was still a great book. Sometimes different is a good thing. In this case it was a great thing. To me it just proves that Mr Goodkind is a true master of his craft. I can't wait until the next installment comes out!
