3.0 out of 5 stars
Terry Goodkind lite, Dec 4 2011
My initial thoughts about the book as I started to read it was that it felt more like a Young Adult novel. I say this for a couple of reasons - first, the chacters were not as complex as in some of his other works. Second, the plot moved fairly quickly as one would expect in a YA novel. The other reason it felt that way was in the text size - large print made the book shorter then it seemed. Comparing it to his other novels, it just feels like Terry Goodkind Lite. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed this book even though it may not be Terry Goodkinds best writing.
This book has had a lot of negative reviews, but it has a good story line and sets up the next book or two nicely, even though the ending in very abrupt (Another reason why it feels like Terry Goodkind lite).
I think that the book is worth a read, just keep in mind that it should really be a YA novel.
