Overview

Debt of Bones (Sword of Truth Series Prequel) by Terry Goodkind

A milestone of storytelling set in the world of The Sword of Truth, Debt of Bones is the story of young Abby's struggle to win the aid of the wizard Zedd Zorander, the most important man alive.

Abby is trapped, not only between both sides of the war, but in a mortal conflict between two powerful men. For Zedd, who commands power most men can only imagine, granting Abby's request would mean forsaking his sacred duty. With the storm of the final battle about to break, both Abby and Zedd are caught in a desperate fight to save the life of a child...but neither can escape the shadow of an ancient betrayal.

With time running out, their only choice may be a debt of bones. The world-for Zedd, for Abby, for everyone-will never again be the same.

Discover why millions of readers the world over have elevated Terry Goodkind to the ranks of legend.

About the Author

Terry Goodkind is a #1 New York Times bestselling author. His books include the eleven-volume Sword of Truth series, beginning with Wizard's First Rule, the basis for the television show Legend of the Seeker. Goodkind was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, where he also attended art school. Alongside a career in wildlife art, he has also been a cabinetmaker and a violin maker, and he has done restoration work on rare and exotic artifacts from around the world — each with its own story to tell, he says. While continuing to maintain the northeastern home he built with his own hands, in recent years he and his wife Jeri have created a second home in the desert Southwest, where he now spends the majority of his time.

Its a decent short story. I read it in just a couple hours at work since its only 160 pages. I would say if you are you are trying to convince your friends to read the series but they are daunted by the size, have them read this book. It gives a good idea of Goodkinds writing style and opens them up to a very good character in Zedd.

This book give some interesting Background on some of the events and one of the main characters (Zedd) from the Sword of Truth series. It is also an in good story in its own right. Although the ending seems telegraphed if you've read the series. Overall it was a good short read.

The story is about a girl that is desperate to save her daughter, who has been kidnapped. While the story line was basic and straightforward it put a lot of information into the story in a very short period of time. The over all effect of the story makes the read seem rushed with very little being focused on the individual characters and their motivations. If the reader has enjoyed The Sword of Truth series then this book will add to it nicely. This book is a fraction of the length of the rest of the books in the series and so will seem like a quick read in comparison. Only one of the characters in this book, Wizard Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander, will appear in the other books.

I love Zed, and reading some of his back story was a nice treat.... my only "bone to pick" ;)  is that it left me wanting more.

This book was a great read. Its nice to see things in Zedd's prescriptive. Nice to see him young filled with promise at his young age. And yet it I feel like this book should have been longer, I guess I'm used to 600 pages or so of books a normally read. I feel like that was just the tip of the ice burg. I wanted to know so much more, like what happen to the Mother Confessor or what happen with his daughter and Darken Rahl or how he manage to take the sword of truth from Samuel and the witch women. However, i like this short insite on Zedd's life.
