Rodney Wilder, October 3, 2012 (view all comments by Rodney Wilder)
A very interesting spin-off of the familiar Sword of Truth series. While there is truth in the criticism that stylistically this book is not the poetic treasure a la "Wizard's First Rule" or "Stone of Tears", the storytelling is still strong and carried out with the same engaging, edge-of-the-seat skill. Generally I can't enjoy fiction in contemporary settings. This book worked though. The connections to Sword of Truth abound in a very rewarding way, triggering pleasant recognition and a fond familiarity for those who have journeyed through the adventures of Richard and Kahlan.

Not a masterpiece by any means, but a fun and worthwhile read all the same.

Fans of Terry Goodkind will find that The Law of Nines has the same magic that pulls us in so that we live in anticipation of the books that are sure to follow. The book is set in the present, on the one hand, with a twist that connects to Goodkind's previous works. It would appear that the work of Goodkind's heroes is never done and, even if the characters are different, the connection to the past is, finally, made abundantly clear. With luck, The Law of Nines could be the first of another engaging series. One can only hope.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Bestseller Goodkind (Confessor) ventures into thriller territory with results sure to please fans of his fantasy fiction. In the opening pages, Alex Rahl, the book's unwitting hero, saves the beautiful Jax from being run down on the street in Orden, Neb., by a plumbing truck flying a pirate flag. Jax, who turns out to be from an alternate reality where evildoers are attempting to seize control of her civilization, has traveled to Nebraska to seek Alex's help in saving her people. In Jax's world, magic takes the place of technology, but on earth she's stripped of her powers and forced to fight armed with only her trusty dagger. The author takes his time setting all this up, but once the story gets rolling, it's a gripping ride as the bad guys whoosh in between their world, which remains unseen, and ours. Fantasy and thriller readers alike will find themselves swept along to the final confrontation and looking forward to the next installment. (Sept.)"
