Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In this prequel to Goodkind’s popular Richard and Kahlan series, Magda had a happy and successful life until the unexpected suicide of her husband. The novel explores Magda’s past and role as the First Confessor as she attempts to justify following her husband’s example. A strong starting volume for readers new to Goodkind’s massive epic.” Library Journal
