Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

The Omen Machine by Terry Goodkind



I have long been a fan of Terry Goodkind.  I suspect I would still be a fan if I had waited until all the books were done and read them then.  I started rereading after the 8th book and finally just gave up.  This is a start to a new series with Richard, the reluctant truth wizard and Kahlan, the beautiful Mother Confessor. 

The familiarity of the characters enticed me into the book.  The interesting changes in how the Mord-Sith evolved was interesting.   The plot has the intricate nature of a typical Goodkind book.  Richard has become a little more certain in his self identity.  
Cara-Sword of Truth

 I still love Cara’s red leather and thought the TV show depicted that quite nicely.  (Decidedly chauvinist opinion no doubt.)

Zedd didn’t seem quite as bizarre as in past books but perhaps his personality was just an acquired taste.  

This reads insipid and I guess that is how I felt about the book.  I liked it but it didn’t grab me like the first four of five Goodkind books did.   

It is worth reading if you haven’t gotten enough of Richard, Kahlan and company.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
