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.

    "Not Good at any level"

    FIRST, this is a SCIENCE FICTION BOOK!

    It is categorized incorrectly. I called Audible and pointed this out so I hope they reclass it so someone else who doesn't know Goodkind will know what type of book this is...

    BTW, Audible Customer Service is TERIFFIC - one of the best Cust Srvs outfits out there!! They addressed my complaint and handled it perfectly - as usual!

    Anyway, once I got over the fact it was a Science Fiction book, the book fails on a lot of levels. It's basic premise is that there exists an alternative dimension and some have figured out how to cross dimensions. However, the author never describes the dimension from which they came and never describes or even alludes as to HOW they even made the jump.

    Definitely NOT recommended at any level!!

    "Law of Nines"

    I spent hours trying to get into this - finally, I gave up. I found this to be very boring and lacking substance.

    "Not his best work, but if you like Goodkind it's great"

    An outlier in the sword of truth novels and written before the conclusion of the omen machine story arc this is out of place if read after the other books in the sword of truth world. However it provides enough fresh material and unique characters to drive a strong story of its own.

    "Raises more questions"

    One suggestion, if you never read the sword of truth series by Terry Goodkind don't pick this up, you will only be confused to what is going on. If you have read them then this is a must read in my opinion.

    I have mixed feelings about this one. I have so many questions that I can't ask or put into this review without spoilers. I like where he is going with this If there is going to be a in going story. If not and that's all, then that is very disappointing. Story over all was good, narrator did a good job. He did sound like a robot from time to time while narrating.

    "Decent side story from the Sword of Truth"

    Would only recommend it if you are curious about Richard's legacy after the series ended
