  • The Law of Nines review

    I expected a standalone with amusing references but got a companion novel which relied on canon. Many of the plot devices were familiar from the Sword of Truth series which made it cliched and unoriginal. The writing had repetition and some attitudes were unfounded.The characters were barely developed, relying on Richard and Kahlan except that Alex and Jax were a pale reflection. Recycling. Jax kept annoying me, even moreso than Alex. She flicked between weak and strong, adoring, feminine then badass. I was left confused, and think it rather sexist. Why couldn't she save Alex in the hospital! Since he was the one they were interested in, the big strong dangerous male who was surprisingly capable at killing people. Despite his grandfather's training, when did the artist train?! I liked the copy of the people's palace but expected it. I also predicted the ending, the feel and cliche of it. Goodkind has made the cliche for himself. He does not seem to be growing as a writer. I do not know whether I was blind to it whilst finishing Sword of Truth a few years back but I see it all too clearly now. I am loathe to read the First Confessor. Speaking of confessors, did Jax seriously have to be an Amnell?! What I would have liked was for a female Rahl to start, and perhaps a descendant of someone other than the original two characters, but whom we could still recognize and smile at. I reread Wizards First Rule a few months back and enjoyed it immensely a second time. This disappointed.

  • Let down

    After reading the Sword of truth series, I was looking forward to this book.... But it was a total let down. Goodkind trying to gain off the SOT series. Horrendous.
