    FoTF i liked all the books. but it was a toss up between WFR and FotF as to what one i liked more. i picked this book mainly because kahlan is awsome leading the war. richard shows nicci the value of life. and kahlan beat richard at practice swords is always good. running richard through at the end is debatable wether it was richards plan or kahlans skill.

    at the end of the book he was run through. richard allowed it to happen that way nicci would have to heal him in order to do that she would have to end the maternity spell with kahlan. but nicci already decided to turn the maternity spell off to free richard. but while richard was helping kahlan heal by practacing sword fighting kahlan did beat richard in a fair contest. so did richard really have to loss on purpose to allow kahlan to win.

    I agree about the toss up. It is indeed close between those two but for me WFR wins out. I can read that book over and over.

    If Chain Fire, Phantom, and Confessor were all combined into one superbook i might have to reconsider though. :saurumon:

    Wow...sounds like you've got quite a few of the paperbacks in hand. I used to have the entire series in paper back but considering I love this series so much, I bought all of them in hard back and I even have two which are signed by Terry Goodkind. I have Confessor and Stone of Tears Signed by him. I also bought a print of the Stone of Tears that was drawn by Keith Parkinson, it cost me a pretty penny and I'm going to hang it up as soon as I get my mantle above my fireplace built. I would frame the picture but it is on a wooden canvas and cannot be framed. I also have the a book called Kingsgate, which features the Art of Keith Parkinson and is forward by Terry Goodkind and signed by him as well. Each hard cover will run you about 30 dollars each or more. It all depends upon the store you buy it from. Luckily, I get a book gift card for christmas and birthdays, so I got all of mine free. Good luck!

    I would rather not because I spent a lot of money on the reproduction. I'm happy with it but I DO have it listed under my house insurance policy in case anything bad ever happens to my home.

    wizard's first rule is both my favorite wizard's rule and series book.

    it starts off meh and ends meh. but everything in between is awesome. like smoked turkey on whole wheat.

    i thought yeah right! a woodsman vs. a quad. yeah right! but a little after that, like after the mud people village it was all good. :) until the end that is. don't get me wrong though i love this book. tamarang was cool and d'hara was cooler. so yeah...
