Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

After unwittingly destroying the magical wards that had sealed off the Old World from the New for 3000 years, the war wizard Richard Cypher discovers that he has inadvertently created a gate through which the evil Keeper, Emperor Jagang, and his minions can enter the land. Separated from his beloved, the former Mother Confessor Kahlan Amnell, who is in hiding to avoid being executed by the people she once served, Richard must now accept the power of his father, Darken Rahl, and use all of his magical abilities to defeat Jagang, to save Kahlan and to close the gate. As in the two previous novels of The Sword of Truth fantasy cycle (Stone of Tears, etc.), Goodkind builds an intricate plot teeming with violence, treachery and intrigue. Newcomers to the series may find it a challenge to get up to speed, but once they do, they?as well as Goodkind's large, loyal readership?will delight in a complex epic fantasy that crackles with vigor and magical derring-do. Author tour.

First of all, I don't understand all the harsh reviews of Terry Goodkind's SoT series. Perhaps the themes in his books have appeared in other stories, but that's true of every author. Any fantasy author who has written about magic, wizards, beautiful women, elves, dwarves, dragons, swords, quests, traveling, a great evil foe, etc. has copied that theme from someone else. Many reviewers compare these stories to Robert Jordan's. They may have similarities, but the biggest difference is that Goodkind's books are INTERESTING. If Robert Jordan came up with these themes first (which he didn't), he sure didn't know what to do with them. I'm glad that Goodkind did. It takes Jordan a whole book just to get his characters to finish breakfast.
Others have recommended Terry Brooks over Terry Goodkind while in the same breath complaining that Goodkind copied the themes in his books. Did any of you ever read the Sword of Shannara? The first 100+ pages were a rip-off of The Fellowship of the Ring.
One reviewer, who ranked this book with ONE STAR wrote, "The evil emperor simply wants to control the world, wow...that's so amazing. We have no idea why he wants to control the world or how he got in a position to do that". If this reader had actually bothered to read the words INSIDE the book, he/she would know that why Jagang wanted to rule and also why he has the power he does. If you're going to rank a book as ONE at least read it. If you can't understand it, that's your problem, not the book's.
My last tirade is concerning the repetition others have complained about. He does fill you in on things you might have forgotten from previous books, but it is not overdone in the least.

Goodkind fans are once again treated to an entertaining story from the author of "Wizard's First Rule". Like the second book in the Sword of Truth series, "Blood of the Fold" picks up where the previous book leaves off and delivers the same successful mix of action, character development, intrigue, surprise, and insight into who we are and what we value.
Probably the best thing to say about this book is it's really, REALLY as good as the first two in the series. While one might be inclined to criticise Goodkind for seemingly copying from Robert Jordon, I feel compelled to point out that while I RAVED about "Wheel of Time" I also have completely given up on the series. I can't stay interested anymore - I don't really care what happens to Rand.
You won't find yourself wading through the mud in the Sword of Truth series because the events, the action, and the mystery just keep unfolding! And it looks as though Goodkind has the skill to continue to spin stories off of Sword of Truth with as much entertainment as "Wizard's First Rule". Yes, this book belongs right up there on the shelf with Jordon's "Wheel of Time" and Donaldson's "Lord Foul's Bane" and Eddings' "Belgariad/Pawn" and Wiliams' "Dragonbone Chair" BUT WAIT, SURPRISE, it also shares the top shelf with the first TWO books already penned in the Sword of Truth World!
Hey fantasy fans - enjoy! This series is one to read. It delivers. You won't be bored!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"I am the bringer of death", in Terry Goodkind's novel, Blood of the Fold, he uses his expertise to create a world of fantasy seem more of a realistic world making his characters seem like someone who really exists.
In this novel Goodkind creates a struggle of epic proportions against the forces of the evil Jageng, a dreamwalker, a man with the power over ones dreams. The only way to find refuge against his power is to swear loyalty to Richard, a woods guide turned ruler of a nation, Jageng wants to enslave the world for his own bidding and anyone who stands in his way he plans to destroy. His fury has been unleashed from his prison behind the Towers of Peradon in Old World when Richard destroyed them. Richard now has plans on conquering the world not for power though in stead he wishes to protect the lands from Jageng.
Goodkind does a great job of describing everything vividly yet doesn't dwell on unimportant details. When he describes a setting he makes it feel like it comes out of the book and fills the room with all the sights, sounds, and smells he creates.
Goodkind also depicts his characters with as much care as he describes his setting. Describing them well in detail, both physically and mentally making each character feel like a close friend or mortal enemy.
He creates a great plot with much action and many plot twists, it also jumps around between characters, both good and bad, giving you a broad view of the story instead of just a small part of it.
Goodkind's use of language in this novel is easy to understand for the most part, there are a few spots where he uses words that make no sense, but they tell you what the words mean so there's never any confusion.
This book is greatly written pulling the reader into a land of fantasy masterfully created and gives a feeling of total release from everyday life.
