Summary

In the mystical kingdom of Windir ...... once lived some twisted guy called Angus Mord. He was a shoemaker by profession, and in his free time he performed all kinds of sorcery. When his fellow citizens got tired of dark rituals and bad shoes, they knocked on his door carrying pitchforks, torches and stakes. To save his life, he made a pact with the ugly demon of madness that in exchange for a few temples and, of course, his soul, enabled him great power and kingdom. Angus Mord thus became the Beautiful Lord, the wizard, the ruler of Windir and the great tyrant against whom the whole company of heroes would have to agree in order to overthrow him from the throne.    Queen Andromache, elf Bjorn, dagger master Jason, witch Taramis, faun Gottfried, wizard Dagonar, dwarf Vonir, tiger man Manfred, dragon Fangorn, gnome Finn and many other heroes will join forces with the young heir to the throne Wilhelm in an epic fight against the pure evil.    From the Bandwoods across the River of Doom, through the Pass of the Bloody Tears, the Valley of the Dreaming Kings and the Misty Wasteland all the way to the Fortress of Crimson Warriors, our heroes will cross swords, halberds and sabers, shoot arrows and cast magic on orcs, trolls, goblins, demons and all sorts of monsters as they reach their final destination - the capital Ul 'Than where they are eagerly awaited by the ruthless Beautiful Lord.   Eric Johansson's novel Kingdom of Hope is a fantastic dedication to the sword and magic genre inspired by Conan, The Lord of the Rings, Narnia, Amber, Greek and Nordic myths…, and is also a wonderful fan homage to the legendary writers such as Robert E. Howard, J.R.R. Tolkien, Poul Anderson and Roger Zelazny.

    Wizard's First Rule

    Wizard’s First Rule, the first novel by Terry Goodkind, was a phenomenon from the moment it was published by Tor Books in 1994, selling more than 100,000 copies in North America alone. It still sells more than 100,000 copies a year and has gone on to bestsellerdom in the United Kingdom and in more than twenty foreign translations as well as audiobook form. 
    It is now being developed as one of the most ambitious television miniseries of all time. Executive Producer Sam Raimi (director of the three Spider-Man movies), in collaboration with Disney/ABC, is creating a 22-episode adaptation of the book to be filmed in New Zealand. 
    Richard and Kahlan’s story unfolds over ten more novels, collectively known as the Sword of Truth series, concluding with Confessor in 2007. Placing Goodkind in the elite club of #1 New York Times bestselling authors, the series has sold more than twenty million copies to date worldwide. 
    In Wizard’s First Rule, Goodkind introduced the world to an ordinary forest guide, Richard Cypher, and the mysterious, powerful woman he comes to love, Kahlan Amnell. Learning his true identity, Richard accepts his destiny as the one man who can stop the bloodthirsty tyrant Darken Rahl. Hunted relentlessly, betrayed and alone, Kahlan calls upon Richard to reach beyond his sword and invoke something more noble within himself as the final confrontation with Darken Rahl looms. 
    The importance of Wizard’s First Rule is sourced in Goodkind taking on the toughest of all literary challenges: to tell an electrifying story of action, violence, and adventure that also makes people think, and that would influence the choices and actions of its readers.
