9780765327727: The Omen Machine

Hannis Arc, working on the tapestry of lines linking constellations of elements that constituted the language of Creation recorded on the ancient Cerulean scroll spread out among the clutter on his desk, was not surprised to see the seven etherial forms billow into the room like acrid smoke driven on a breath of bitter breeze. Like an otherworldly collection of spectral shapes seemingly carried on random eddies of air, they wandered in a loose clutch among the still and silent mounted bears and beasts rising up on their stands, the small forest of stone pedestals holding massive books of recorded prophecy, and the evenly spaced display cases of oddities, their glass reflecting the firelight from the massive hearth at the side of the room.



Since the seven rarely used doors, the shutters on the windows down on the ground level several stories below stood open as a fearless show of invitation. Though they frequently chose to use windows, they didn't actually need the windows any more than they needed the doors. They could seep through any opening, any crack, like vapor rising in the early morning from the stretches of stagnant water that lay in dark swaths through the peat barrens.



The open shutters were meant to be a declaration for all to see, including the seven, that Hannis Arc feared nothing.

#1 New York Times-bestselling author Terry Goodkind returns to the lives of Richard Rahl and Kahlan Amnell―in a compelling tale of a new and sinister threat to their world.

From the Author:

"THE OMEN MACHINE - This is the extraordinary story of what happens next in Richard and Kahlan's world now that the great war has ended.  (A few have asked, and no, there is no connection whatsoever to THE LAW OF NINES.)  I'm having a great time writing this book and can't wait for people to read it.  From the first sentence you will be just as mystified as Richard, Kahlan, Zedd, and many of the other characters we've all come to care so much about.  I can't say much more for now... except fear what is about to happen." - Terry Goodkind, December 2010

From the Back Cover:

Enter the unique world of Terry Goodkind.  A place of high adventure, brilliant story-telling, and unforgettable characters.

"Outstanding... Characters who actually behave like adults. Highly recommended." - The San Diego Union tribune

"Few writers have Goodkind's power of creation."  - Publishing News

"Teeming with violence, treachery, and intrigue."  - Publisher's Weekly

"Eminently readable."  - Booklist

"A tour de force of mesmerizing story-telling."  - RT Book Reviews

"Goodkind's greatest triumph: the ability to introduce instantly identifiable characters.  His heroes, like us, are not perfect.  Instead, each is flawed in ways that strengthen, rather than weaken, their impact.  - SFX
