    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.

    Billowbirds are flying, and that can only mean one thing. An Ascendant lives.
     
    Before the Lady Keres usurped the throne, the realm teemed with magic; enchanters, elementals, dream walkers, healers… But they were all gone now. Or so it seemed.
     
    Since her birth, Lyn’s path had been set in stone; she would inherit her father’s title and responsibilities and become the Baroness Tovaar. But it was what she inherited from her mother that would change her life forever.
     
    Orphaned brother and sister, Sander and Mari, led simple lives tending the vineyard for their viceroy. Each day was much the same as the next, as long as Sander’s peculiar talent remained undiscovered.
     
    Young Nessa had always known she was special. Gifted. But it was that very gift that compelled her parents to seclude her in a corner of the realm where, by the Blessed Mother’s grace, the stalkers would never find her.
     
    None of them knew their true lineage. None were aware of their bond. And, until mysterious strangers came into their lives, none of them knew that the fate of the realm rested upon their shoulders and that it was their destiny to restore the lost magic of Lithandys.
