From #1 New York Times bestselling author Terry Goodkind comes The First Confessor, the prequel to the Sword of Truth
In a time before legends had yet been born...

Married to the powerful leader of her people, safe among those gifted with great ability, Magda Searus is protected from a distant world descending into war. But when her husband, a man who loved life and loved her, unexpectedly commits suicide, she suddenly finds herself alone. Because she is ungifted herself, without her husband she no longer has standing among her people, and she finds herself isolated in a society that seems to be crumbling around her.

Despite her grief, she is driven to find the reasons behind why her husband would do such a thing--why he would abandon her and her people at such a profoundly dangerous time. Though she is not gifted, she begins to discover that there may be more to her husband's suicide than anyone knew. What she finds next, no one is willing to believe.

Without anyone to help her, she knows that she must embark on a mission to find a mysterious spiritist, if she even exists, so that she may speak with the dead. This quest may also be her last chance to unravel what is really behind the mysterious events befalling her people. What she discovers along the way is that the war is going far worse than she had known, and that the consequences of defeat will be more terrifying for her and her people than she could have imagined.

As mortal peril begin to close in around her, Magda learns that she is somehow the key to her people's salvation.

Journey with Magda Searus into her dark world, and learn how true legends are born.

Book Description Head of Zeus, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. The prequel to Sword of Truth. Magda Searus has lost her husband to the war that is slowly consuming the world. The consequences of defeat will be more terrifying for her people than she could ever have imagined. Her stand will change the history of the world. In 1994 WIZARD'S FIRST RULE introduced Richard Cypher, a young forester struggling with the aftermath of his father's murder. His search for answers will embroil him in an ancient war, three-millennia past, that is about to re-ignite with world-shattering violence. The Sword of Truth series has since been translated into 20 languages and sold 26 million copies. Now, two decades after its launch, it concludes with two volumes: THE FIRST CONFESSOR takes readers back in time to events that led to the forging of the Sword of Truth, while WARHEART completes Richard Cypher's story. The First Confessor tells the story of Magda Searus, a woman who has lost her husband to the war that is slowly consuming the world. With his death she discovers that the consequences of defeat will be more terrifying for her and her people than she could ever have imagined. Her stand will change the history of the world.
