Before becoming a writer, he worked as a carpenter, mostrar mais violin-maker, hypnotherapist, wildlife artist and restorer of rare artifacts. Goodkind's first novel, "Wizards First Rule" (1994), took a year for him to write and had a record-breaking debut. It became an international bestseller and won the praise of many writers in the fantasy genre. The sequels "Stone of Tears" (1995) and "Blood of the Fold" (1996) experienced equal success. His fourth book, "Temple of the Winds" was published in 1997. His other books include The Pillars of Creation, Naked Empire, Confessor, The Omen Machine, Severed Souls, and Shroud of Eternity.

FROM AMAZON: Raging River, priestess of the Sun People, has just done the unthinkable.

The Sun People are bound by an ancient law, left by the long-vanished Sky People: They must never kill. To other tribes, who have no such law, the Sun People are easy prey who will not defend themselves. Their game is poached, their stores raided, their women abducted, their men are killed for sport.

But when Raging River and her sister are attacked by a Wolf People raiding party, River fights back and kills one of the warriors. Worse, she has killed the son of their chief.

Now, with the Wolf People vowing revenge and her people facing annihilation, River must do the impossible. She must prove herself as priestess. She must find the mythical Sky People.

The Sky People is a fast-paced novella of revenge and redemption that explores new territory for number-one international best seller Terry Goodkind.

Het viel me echt tegen. Het leest wel vlot, maar mist diepte en de personages zijn slappe aftreksels van karakters uit De wetten van de magie. Het enige pluspunt vind ik de plot, maar dat kan het boek toch niet alleen dragen.Het duurde tot over de helft van het boek voor het verhaal me zo pakte dat ik me minder begon te ergeren aan de hoofdpersonen. Ik denk echt dat fans van hem het verhaal prima zullen vinden, maar ik niet. Zo jammer, want de plot is wel erg interessant

La narrazione di La leggenda di Magda Searus si sviluppa attraverso una serie di dialoghi e il racconto di scene di magia non sono piu’ di due o tre (tra l’altro in un libro di oltre cinquecento pagine!).

Speriamo nella serie maggiore…

Alcuni brani:
Magda si domando’ se le storie che in futuro la gente avrebbe appreso avrebbero avuto qualche somiglianza alla realta’. La storia, come i ricordi stessi, tendeva a diventare distorta con il passare del tempo, o peggio, corrotta dai secondi fini di coloro che la scrivevano. (84-5)

(Merritt) “Ci sono persone che vogliono delle cosa,” disse “ma non sono disposte ad ascoltare la verita’ sulle cose che vogliono.” (274)

Anche se non possedeva il dono, poteva avvertire chiaramente il potere della magia che la spada ora possedeva. Era un potere diverso da qualunque cosa lei avesse mai immaginato. Ribolliva come aveva fatto la tempesta. Conteneva piu’ energia di quanto ne avesse avuta la tempesta. Era furia e rabbia, amore e vita, tutto ripiegato assieme, piu’ e piu’ volte, fuso in strati sottilissimi di qualcosa di nuovo, qualcosa di straordinario. (380)

Il mago aggrotto' la fronte. "Tu insinui che una vita ha un maggior valore solo perche' giovane. Il confine, mia cara, al di la' del quale il valore di una vita perde importanza. Dove sta il confine?" (49)

Il mago tese le braccia. Il fuoco liquido, blu e giallo, ubbidi' all'ordine del suo padrone e rotolo' in avanti, accelero' e si diresse rombando verso il D'Hara. Mentre attraversava il fiume, crebbe come un fulmine adirato sempre piu' splendente, piangendo di rabbia furibonda, riflettendosi nell'acqua in migliaia di scintille luminose. (79)… (mais)
