Terry Goodkind - einfach WOW!
ich habe alle Bände in deutscher Fassung (Buchform) gelesen (Übersetzung perfekt!) und nun auf meinem KINDLE in englischer Originalversion.

+ tolle Story
+ überraschende Wendungen
+ sehr kreativ mit vielen neuen Wesen/Kreaturen
+ natürlich voller Magie aber auch Menschenverstand :)

Absolute Leseempfehlung wer sich auf Fantasie einlassen will.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen!

Well, I just finished Blood Of The Fold and I am firmly
convinced that Terry Goodkind and Robert Jordan are actually
the same person. Hey, that's not bad! I love both

Seriously, I feel that Goodkind has borrowed more than
his fair share from Jordan, but he still tells a great story.
The action is nonstop(although I could do with less brutality)
and my breathing quickens as I turn each page. As fast as I can.

My biggest problem now is waiting for BOTH Goodkind
and Jordan to publish their next book! Three cheers for Master Rahl!! Mark Luuug Raaaach aaarg

I seeing the constant comparisons to Robert Jordan, I find it rather funny how completely different the authors really ARE, yet are compared so MUCH. Sure, there ARE similarities, but a REAL read of both authors finds that they are purely coincidental, and not meant to 'rip-off' the other. BOTH authors are good in their own way, and the comparisons are as fair as saying that Star Wars ripped off Star Trek simply because the Millennium Falcon jumps to Hyperspace. I 'SEE' the similarity, but I also realize they are COMPLETELY different, and not as similar as some would like to think. After originally reading 'Blood of the Fold' I felt a bit dissappointed when compared to the first two books...but now after re-reading it, I have decided that my original 'review' was a bit harsh. The only book in the series that was truly a let down was the most recent, "Soul Of The Fire". Other than that, the first 4 books are clearly superior to most (if not all) fantasy novels in print today. I AM partial to Goodkind, but that doesn't mean I can't see the obvious talent that Jordan has...but for ME, Goodkind seems to hit home, just like Jordan 'clicks' with others and SOME find them ALL worthless. Reviews are just opinions, and we ALL know how varied they can be, right? You just have to read the books for yourself to make a judgement call. So go ahead and read Jordan AND Goodkind and make up your OWN mind. Either way, if you are a fan of fantasy, you will most likely enjoy EVERY minute. Happy reading!

Wieder einmal ein toller Terry Brooks. Nachdem ich alle Shannara-Bände in Englisch gelesen habe, war dies mein letzter und eindeutig einer der besten. Da ich quasi die Vorgeschichte zum Schluss gelesen habe, erschienen die mir mehr oder weniger vertrauten Figuren eine nach der anderen wie alte Freunde während des Lesens. Ein Buch dass ich Mühe hatte in der Nacht wegzulegen. Empfehlenswert für alle Shannara-Fans sowie jeden Neueinsteiger!

A great story, involving characters, and above average depth make this fantasy series one of the best out there. I'm a huge fantasy fan, and have found Goodkind's story to be very addictive and imaginative. I do have to agree with an earlier review re: Goodkinds use of ideas created by Robert Jordan in his "Wheel of Time" series, but I also feel that he has used them in different ways, and has changed them enough to allow the reader to enjoy without feeling cheated. However, Goodkind has also come up with a lot of ideas of his own, such as the Confessors and the separation of magic along the lines of Additive and Subtractive.
As to the previous review that trashed Goodkind's work, it is obvious that the writer didn't read the novels, and has decided that Goodkind's use of realism in his stories is too much to handle. The review reminds me of how the church used to take passages from classic novels out of text and decide that they were the work of Satan. Some advice to potential readers: If you don't like realism, and think that everything in the world is kind and gentle, stay away from this series. Goodkind has shown a wonderful ability to mix realism with fantasy, and to show that sometimes it takes brutality and gore to arrive at a good end. In this, he reminds me of George R.R. Martin and his "Song of Ice and Fire" series.
Overall, the series, and this particular book, are great pieces of fantasy writing, and will be enjoyed by any fantasy fan who understands that life isn't always nice, or fair.

I can't say which of this set I think is the best... they are all great books. This one I would like to say is the best, but then again they are all great. I have read through most of the others reviews and I am learning very quick not to believe everything I read. I have enjoyed reading the first three books in the series and fully intend on reading every single one until the end of the series. As for Terry Goodkind coping others story lines and ruining it for us well take it as you will but he has great twists and if you ask me a apple is a apple but each has a different taste, so don't judge so harshly!
Once again Richard, Kahlan, Zedd and the rest of the gang are back tring to save the world from evil. This time the threat isn't the keeper or the evil wizard Darken Rahl, but Emperor Jagang and clan of mriswith. While Kahlan is hiding with the death spell on her ( the death spell was put there by Zedd) waiting for Richard to meet up with her, Richard is once again distracted with his instinct and draws the midlands together to fight against the new evil team the "Imperial order". The blood of the fold, believing anthing with magic is evil is after the mother confessor, and abducts her and takes her to the sisters of the dark.
Once again I will say it as I have in my past reviews, if you liked the first two books you will like this one just as much if not more!

Like many young readers of my generation, I grew up with The Sword of Shannara. The easy to read text, the episodic adventures reminiscent of Alexander Dumas, and the thrilling Brothers Hilderbrandt illustrations made this book a juvinile classic. However, I never liked the two immdeiate sequels [Elfstones; Wishsong]. Their major problems were uninteresting premises and lots of intangible magic. The "Heritage" series gradually restored the feel of the original book, introducing fun influences from the Oz series. But First King is the only Shannara book as good as the original. Although Brooks [like Baum] can be deadly dull, First King has the same brisk air of high, childish adventure. The characters are broad [described in a few lines - in the manner of a good Jr. High-School book report], the battles big and exciting, the conclusion satisfying. I hope that Brooks indulges in a few more "prequels".

Terry Brooks burst onto the fantasy scene with his fantastic epic, The Sword of Shannara. First King of Shannara is the prequel of Sword of Shannara, and faces the problem of many prequels: you know what is going to happen.
Despite this handicap, Brooks weaves an interesting story, creating a believable cast of characters. But, this book may be better appreciated by readers who read this book prior to reading Sword.
Character development exists, but it seems that the rich writing that made Sword such a major fantasy event is lacking in King. A lot of time is spent setting up events for the future story to be found in Sword. Naturally, this is the purpose of any preguel, but it does cast a shadow over the storytelling aspects of this book.
First King of Shannara is a good book, but does not qualify for greatness. It should be enjoyed by all fans of Brooks' Shannara series.

Terry Goodkind is ussualy a very good author. But I really didnt like this one, but I read on past this one because I had really liked the previous two. Im happy I did because I found out that The Blood of the Fold was only writen to set up the next book. Even if you didnt like this book i suggest to read on i garenty that you will be happy you did.

While I somewhat enjoyed the first two books, the third left me cold. I cannot imagine that this book would have ever been published on its own. I can only imagine that it was due to the the success of the previous two installments. Unfortunately, I will stop reading the SoT series here. There is not enough time for things like SoT when I know there is better work out there. Do yourself an immense favor and read the Tad Williams books in the "Memory, Sorrow and Thorn" series starting with the "Dragonbone Chair".
