5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST READ!!!!! Aug. 26 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book answers so many questions, it held me on the edge of my seat the entire time and I loved it. The new main characters that are introduced are as intelligent, noble and real-seeming as any, and I immediately found myself feeling a connection with them and felt the connection they have to the other characters. The First Confessor is a must-read for those who have read the rest of the series - you won't be disappointed. For those who are new to Terry Goodkind's work The First Confessor is a prequel to a long, utterly amazing series and I highly recommend you check out all of this Author's books. You won't regret it :)

Terry Goodkind is an amazing author, who can suck the reader into his world with such simple words. He had me at "It was an odd-looking vine."

5.0 out of 5 stars Terry at his very best March 16 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I am a big fan of Terry. I have read all his books. He has a unusual ability to bring his characters to life. This story brought the whole series of the seeker in perspective. Where it all started and how the sword came to be, as well as creating the first confessor. This is a must read for all the fantasy lovers out there. You won't be disappointed. I am proud to give this book 5 stars.

Once again we are brought into the fabulous writings of Mr. Goodkind. This book was fantastic and well thought out. It answered some questions I had from the Sword Of Truth series.

3.0 out of 5 stars promissing but not very satisfying Jan. 11 2015
By Dia
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved the story and enjoyed reading it, but I was a bit disappointed by how simplistic the writing was. I was expecting same level of complexity and detail as in all other books by Terry Goodkind, but this book felt like it was written by someone else. There is also a lot of repetition, same thing is described over and over again in every chapter it seems. Once, maybe twice is enough....but more than that seems to me like a filler. That is why I am giving this book 3 stars only.
All in all you will like the story if you can look through all those things mentioned above.

3.0 out of 5 stars Seems to lose focus Aug. 31 2014
By Matthew
Format:Kindle Edition
A good start to the book had me reading the book veraciously until about 3/4 through. It seemed to lose focus. At the end it seemed like it was being written as the writer remembered issues that had to be resolved. This caused some flow issues that reduced my enjoyment if the book. The ending seemed to be overly long making sure all possible questions were answered. A good read but far from his best work from my perspective.

4.0 out of 5 stars Editor needed
Good story but not his normal fluid writing style. Wonder if this needed a little more editor input? Love that he is embracing electronic media so openly though

5.0 out of 5 stars Worthy of Goodkind
Finally, after all the mystery, the TRUTH. Done in an appealing, masterful story telling style as only Goodkind is capable of. Bravo
