Soul of the Fire | Terry Goodkind
25 posts | 41 read | 2 to read
Richard Rahl has traveled far from his roots as a simple woods guide. Emperor of the D'Haran Empire, war wizard, the Seeker of Truth--none of these roles mean as much to him as his newest: husband to his beloved Kahlan Amnell, Mother Confessor of the Midlands.But their wedding day is the key that unlocks a spell sealed away long ago in a faraway country. Now a deadly power pours forth that threatens to turn the world into a lifeless waste.Separated from the Sword of Truth and stripped of their magic, Richard and Kahlan must journey across the Midlands to discover a dark secret from the past and a trap that could tear them apart forever. For their fate has become inextricably entwined with that of the Midlands--and there's no place so dangerous as a world without magic...

There were aspects in the first few chapters that sucked but thankfully it picked up after that and made for a great read.

I have such a love/hate relationship with Terry Goodkind. I love his Sword of Truth series. It's honestly one of my favorite fantasy series, but I've read interviews of the author and he seems like such an asshole. 😧 Very arrogant and contemptuous. So while I love his books, Terry Goodkind is not one of my favorite authors!

#gratefulreads #notsofavoriteauthor @OriginalCyn620 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

vivastory Do you watch Daniel Greene's YouTube videos? He has an excellent one about why Goodkind is controversial 2mo
Branwen @vivastory Wow, really? No, I had no idea that was a thing! I'm going to look up his videos! 2mo
vivastory You're in for a treat with his back catolog. Greene is a big WoT & King fan. 2mo

GrilledCheeseSamurai @vivastory Yay! Another Daniel Greene fan. 👏 2mo
vivastory @GrilledCheeseSamurai He's one of the very few booktubers I still watch 2mo
OriginalCyn620 👍🏻📚 2mo
Branwen @vivastory OMG. So I just watched that particular video and I am even more shocked and appalled at Goodkind's behavior! I'm also glad that most people seem to hate him, because I thought it was just me. I can't believe how mean he was about Robert Jordan! What an awful human being! 😡 I wonder if I reread his series if I will feel differently about it due to what I now know! 🤔 2mo
vivastory His comments about Jordan were appalling. His level of arrogance is astonishing. I hope I didn't ruin his series for you, but when you posted about him I thought you might be interested. 2mo
DaveGreen7777 Curiosity got the better of me so I checked out the Daniel Greene video about Terry Goodkind. “If you noticed a similarity, then you probably aren‘t old enough to read my books.” YIKES! Yeah, that‘s more than a little douchey! 😒 And the insensitive remarks about Robert Jordan are absolutely reprehensible! 🤬 2mo
Branwen @vivastory Oh no worries! You didn't ruin anything! I'm glad that I now know what an absolute turd he is! I remember that when I first read the Sword of Truth series it was around the same time that I was reading the Wheel of Time series because I discovered them not too far apart. I remember thinking that were some striking similarities between the two! Imglad I wasn't the only one who thought that! 2mo
Branwen @vivastory I really do want to reread the Sword of Truth books again at some point, because I'm curious to how I will feel about them now that I know all the facts! 🤔 2mo
Branwen @vivastory PS-> I can't stop watching Daniel Greene videos now! 🤣😂 2mo
Branwen @DaveGreen7777 RIGHT?!?! I always knew he was a jerk, but I had NO IDEA what a loathsome human being he is. How DARE he treat another person like that, especially when that person is ROBERT FREAKING JORDAN!!!!! 😡😡😡 2mo
vivastory @Branwen @DaveGreen7777 I just now noticed he interviewed Sanderson. He must be on cloud 9 because he's a huge Brandon Sanderson fan😄 2mo
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen @vivastory @GrilledCheeseSamurai You‘ll all be happy to know that I am now a Daniel Greene subscriber! 😁 2mo
vivastory @DaveGreen7777 🎉👏🤘I don't agree with him 💯 of the time, but I honestly think he's producing the best fantasy related content on YouTube 2mo
Branwen @DaveGreen7777 ME TOO! 💕📚👍🎉 2mo
Branwen @vivastory I am watching that one now! 😀 2mo
vivastory @Branwen Same here, I think he's doing a good job so far. I'd be completely geeking out 😂 2mo
GrilledCheeseSamurai @vivastory @DaveGreen7777 @Branwen Daniel Greene is a joy to watch. Over the past year his channel has grown in leaps and bounds. He isn't into all the book tube gimmicks (which can sometimes be fun) and produces a lot of thoughtful fantasy commentary. Most of it I agree with & some if it I don't. I love that he's full time creator now so he updates a lot too. 👍 2mo
GrilledCheeseSamurai As for Goodkind...i actually liked the first 4-5 books. After that I lost interest. After finding out that he was a dirt bag human though I don't like supporting him anymore. 🤷🏼‍♂️ 2mo
vivastory @GrilledCheeseSamurai I love it when Greene has his rants, because like you said they are thoughtful & he's definitely not reactionary. But he's not afraid to call someone out on their BS when it's warranted, like his recent video about Dessen 2mo
GingerAntics I started his Sword of Truth series, but it seemed to get repetitive, then I started reading all these articles about how he actually stole the story from a different series. I ended up giving up after the third or fourth book because predictable. 2mo
Branwen @GingerAntics I'm honestly still reeling over how deplorable Goodkind is! 😧 2mo
GingerAntics I guess I‘ve never seen an interview with him. If he‘s that bad, I‘m glad I stopped giving him my money. 2mo

Book 5 done in the #swordoftruth , I‘m too far into it to bail. It‘s slowed down too much for my liking. I‘ll see it out though. Or someone could summarise the last 5 books for me ....... 🤦🏻‍♂️😂😂😂 #fantasy #epicfantasy Photo of Edinburgh getting ready for Xmas. Randomly there are loads of little quirky pop HP stores, their awesome!

AshHisson I think I only made it to book 4 in that series before bailing. For the Edinburgh picture, I believe that street was part of Rowling‘s inspiration for Diagonal Alley. 1y
LoverofLit The sixth book was my favorite. Stick it through! I believe in you! 1y
DannyHattan Ahh that makes more sense now @AshHisson and @LoverofLit I‘m committed now, I‘ll see it through 😂😂🙌🏻🙌🏻 1y

Not a bed view after waking up today. The sunrises here keep getting better. Making slow progress in the book at the moment, getting a lil bit predictable 🤦🏻‍♂️ #fantasy #epicfantasy

While this definitely isn‘t my favourite book in the Sword of Truth series, parts of it are very good. I think the reason I don‘t like it as much is that there is a lot of “building the scene” parts; so much that the story itself gets a little muddled while the author is setting everything up.

Such an interesting way to describe someone who has never learned to read. It‘s funny that Beata can‘t understand how people can remember the marks that make up reading, while I am currently reading the passage and knowing what those marks mean. 🧐

Good enough story. A bit repetitive. Still going to keep reading the series, though.
