The next major novel is titled THE THIRD KINGDOM. It will be published by Tor and available everywhere, this Summer. It is the sequel to THE OMEN MACHINE (2011) and continues the story of Richard and Kahlan.




....I hope that's not the cover. Suspect

Oh. My. God.

That is perhaps one of the worst slogans/tag lines for a book I've ever seen.

Sometimes I hate the fact that I hate not finishing a series once I start it.

This applies to this new series of R&K novels. The Omen Machine was not particularly good but I felt I had to read it because it was about R&K.

I am not looking forward to this new book, especially after seeing that god-awful graphic, but I have to read it because I read The Omen Machine.

After reading The First Confessor I think I'll always cringe when I learn about another Goodkind book as I'll always be concerned what characters he's going to ruin next lol

Ah. So I guess I'm not alone in my lack of enthusiasm then.

I'll read it because I like reading, but I may not buy it. I didn't wind up buying The Omen Machine either.

Agreed. Did Mr. Goodkind get Revel to do his tag lines now?

I'll probably end up buying it--I mean, come on, if you thought they'd have a happily ever after you didn't read the series. But yeah, it's not the same as it was when it was the Sword of Truth novels--I'm not already planing on losing a weekend to it.

Well, they probably WILL end up living happily ever after at the end. But they'll suffer and work for it right up until that point.

You all should be able to remember my enthusiasm for the Sword of Truth series. Would it shock any of you to know, that after Law of Nines, I haven't read any of Terry's books? I just can't bring myself to ruin what I love most about Faith of the Fallen by continuing to read his books.

Anyway, I should find the thread about Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn... Wink

I'm not sure if that means you've read it yet or not, but in case you haven't... yes you should. It's an awesome book!

And I haven't forgotten my enthusiasm for the SOT series, I still collect hardcovers of it in fact. I haven't forgotten my enthusiasm for his newer stuff either, because I never had it to begin with. Razz

Ooh, are we talking about Mistborn now? Because that's a much better topic IMO Very Happy I need to reread that now that I know all the ending twists. I still can't believe I didn't see some of that coming...

Sanderson is one of the best at having great twists that you should see coming, but never do Razz
