Parkinson died on October 26, , but not before completing the cover art for two more novels in the series. The series is set in a world divided into two major regions: The New World consists of three lands with Westland in the west, D'Hara in the east and the Midlands in the center of the two.
D'Hara is ruled by a magically gifted member of the Rahl family, while the welfare of the Midlands is decided by a council of representatives led by the Mother Confessor, who is also the leader of the Confessors. Westland, a land of no magic, is also ruled by a council of representatives. The Old World is not introduced until the second book in the series and its geographical features are described in less detail.
Over the course of the series, Richard learns about his heritage while seeking to stop the evil that others would unleash upon the world of the living. Because Richard refuses to sacrifice his values and lives his life as a free man, others begin to understand the nobility of man and what it means to be free. Each book is loosely themed around a Wizard's Rule, tenets by which all wizards should abide. The eleventh full-length novel, Confessor , concludes the series' central story arc regarding the invasion of the Imperial Order, an empire in the Old World led by Jagang.
Warheart was the last novel in the series. The first book, Wizard's First Rule , takes place in the New World, some twenty or so years after two magical boundaries were raised to separate Westland, the Midlands, and D'Hara. The story deals with the growth of the D'Haran Empire under its leader, Darken Rahl , as he invades the Midlands, taking over its territories while seeking to gain control of an ancient power over life called the Boxes of Orden.
The book begins a few weeks after the murder of Richard's father. Richard encounters a young woman by the name of Kahlan Amnell , who is a Confessor and has come from the Midlands in search of the First Wizard. He discovers that his best friend and mentor, Zeddicus Zu'l "Zedd" Zorander , is the wizard whom she seeks. Furthermore, he finds himself appointed and accepting the role of the Seeker of Truth and wielding the Sword of Truth. The sword is said to work through perception, it will cut through anything thought of as an enemy; with any doubt the sword will stop mid-air, inches from the target.
The Sword also instills and amplifies great anger and rage thereby giving the one wielding it added strength, agility and conviction. Richard, Kahlan and Zedd journey to the Midlands in search of the last Box of Orden that Rahl needs to acquire before he can use the magic of Orden.
Along the way, Richard and Kahlan fall in love. The first book concludes with Richard killing Rahl by tricking him into making a mistake, and the revelation of Richard's true parentage. The series continues with Stone of Tears , which immediately follows the events that occurred in Wizard's First Rule.
Unbeknownst to Richard, the opening of the boxes of Orden has torn the veil between the worlds of the living and the dead, allowing minions of the Keeper of the Underworld to come forth. However, before they can, they are separated when Richard is captured by the Sisters of the Light; they are women from the Old World, and they train men who can use magic to become wizards.
On the way, she witnesses the beginning of the Imperial Order's invasion into the New World. Upon reaching Aydindril, she discovers that her people have been corrupted by the Order; she is subsequently sentenced to death.
Meanwhile, at the Palace of the Prophets the Sisters' home in the Old World , Richard learns more about magic, prophecies, and his identity. He escapes the Palace and returns to D'Hara to stop the Keeper from devouring the world of the living. The novel ends with Richard discovering that Kahlan is safe outside Aydindril with her identity shielded by Zedd, and Kahlan being reassured that Richard has returned to the New World.
Richard's plan to reunite with Kahlan is delayed by the arrival of the Mriswith and the advancement of Jagang's army into the New World in the third novel, Blood of the Fold.
Kahlan is captured on her way back to Aydindril, along with the sorceress Adie, by the Blood of the Fold. He takes this opportunity to destroy the Palace, preventing Jagang from using the treasures it holds. The fourth novel, Temple of the Winds , tells of the struggles Richard, Kahlan and their friends face as they attempt to stop a plague released by a Sister of the Dark under Jagang's control and to prevent Jagang from seizing important items that will help him win the war.
As Nathan Rahl retrieves books from Jagang under a tentative deal struck between them, he sends Zedd and Ann to destroy the prophecies found within the Jocopo Treasure. As foretold by prophecy regarding the plague, Kahlan betrays Richard in order for him to gain admittance into the Temple of the Winds, where he can then stop the plague. When Richard eventually returns, they forgive each other for their actions. However, the price of Richard's return includes that he has to leave with the plague.
With Nathan and Cara 's help, Kahlan is able to cure Richard of his plague. The plot concludes with Richard and Kahlan's wedding at the Mud People's village, where they are reunited with Zedd and Ann. Directly following Temple of the Winds , Soul of the Fire revolves around Richard and Kahlan dealing with the threat of all magic's disappearance and the leaders of Anderith, who are considering surrendering to the Imperial Order whilst they have a weapon of mass destruction called the Dominie Dirtch in their possession.
Richard and Kahlan discover that a terrible magic known as the "Chimes" has been released and is draining magic from the world, causing magic to fail and creatures of magic to die.
They head to Anderith, a land in the Midlands which they believe is connected to the Chimes. Moreover, as Jagang's army marches towards Anderith, Richard attempts to save the people of Anderith by urging them to join the D'Haran Empire but fails.
Meanwhile, Ann attempts to save the Sisters of the Light under Jagang's control but is betrayed by them and is captured instead. She escapes with the help of her former student, who is a Sister of the Dark.
The novel ends with Richard banishing the Chimes and deciding to return to Westland, where he will help Kahlan recover from injuries sustained in Anderith and wait until the people of the New World prove to him that they truly want freedom. The next volume in the series, Faith of the Fallen , chronicles more than one and a half years of the characters' lives. Nicci , a Sister of the Dark and a follower of the Imperial Order, captures Richard and forces him to travel with her to the Old World by using a magical spell that allows her to control Kahlan's life.
Kahlan assumes control of the army and stalls Jagang's army from capturing Aydindril, the seat of power in the Midlands.
When Kahlan finally sees that she cannot stop Jagang's army from seizing control of the Midlands, she travels to the Old World with Cara in search of Richard. Meanwhile, in the Old World capital of Altur'Rang, Richard has begun changing the outlooks people have, including Nicci's, on their lives and the beliefs they have of the Imperial Order through his determination and will to live.
The people of Altur'Rang rebel against and free themselves from the Order. Repenting, Nicci removes the spell from Kahlan and joins Richard and Kahlan in their fight against the Order. While continuing on from Faith of the Fallen , The Pillars of Creation differs from the other novels in the series in that its protagonists are not Richard and Kahlan, but new characters by the names of Jennsen Rahl and Oba Rahl , who are Richard's half siblings. Both are unaware that they are pristinely ungifted and immune to magic.
Jennsen, who has spent most of her life hiding from the Lord Rahl originally Darken Rahl , meets an Imperial Order spy named Sebastian, who fuels her hatred of the new Lord Rahl Richard by convincing her of the Order's beliefs in equality.
She joins Jagang and his army as they launch an attack on the Confessor's Palace in Aydindril. After their defeat, Jennsen strikes a deal with the Keeper to surrender herself in exchange for Richard's death. Meanwhile, Oba follows the bidding of the Keeper, who is using him in his plan to enter the world of the living. In the novel's climax, Jennsen realizes the truth by seeing through the lies of the Imperial Order and chooses to help Richard in his quest against Jagang.
They learn that the people of Bandakar are pristinely ungifted like Jennsen and Oba, and have been overrun by the Order because they have shunned all forms of violence, refusing to fight for their own lives. Richard eventually convinces them to rise up and cast the Imperial Order, led by a cruel and merciless Slide, from their mountain homeland.
In the process, Richard learns to restore his gift, which had failed because he did not have enough faith in himself and his abilities. Meanwhile, the Wizard's Keep in Aydindril is infiltrated by men captured from Bandakar.
Three novels of the series, Chainfire , Phantom , and Confessor , were written as a trilogy called the Chainfire Trilogy , which brings the story arc concerning Jagang's invasion to an end.
After recovering from an injury, Richard wakes up to find Kahlan missing and that no one remembers she existed. Richard discovers that the Sisters of the Dark kidnapped Kahlan and cast the Chainfire spell that erases everyone's memories of Kahlan and Kahlan's memories of herself. However, Richard's mind was protected from the spell by the Sword of Truth. The Sisters use Kahlan to steal the boxes of Orden in the People's Palace in D'Hara, which they intend to use to unleash their master, the Keeper of the Underworld, into the world of the living.
Unbeknownst to the Sisters, Jagang still has access into their minds, and has learned much from their journey and of their plans. Kahlan, who has also been captured by Jagang, sees Richard and although she does not remember him, she feels encouraged to fight on and remember her past. To remove the Chainfire spell, Richard must use the magic of Orden.
With that power, he not only restores Kahlan's memories and others' memories of her, he also creates an identical world or parallel universe to the one they're living in to which he banishes all of the people from the old world who are unable to see the benefit of individuality and prosperity. Jennsen and the people of Bandakar, the "pillars of creation", the pristinely ungifted decide to also go into this new, magicless world.
If they stayed and bred in Richard's world, magic would eventually die out. Richard then closes the gateway seemingly forever and separates the worlds. The series ends with the marriage of Cara and General Meiffert, and Richard's declaration that the traditional D'Haran devotions are no longer necessary, because everyone's life is their own to live.
In addition to the novels, Goodkind wrote a short story titled Debt of Bones for the anthology Legends , edited by Robert Silverberg. It was published as a stand-alone novella in The story takes place in The Sword of Truth universe and is set a few decades before the events in the main series, focusing on how and why the boundaries that separated Westland, the Midlands, and D'Hara in "Wizard's First Rule" were created.
The Legend of Magda Searus was initially released on July 15, , as an e-book, then in print July The First Confessor covers a wide variety of information including the Wizards War, the creation of the Sword of Truth, confessors, and information about the damage done to magic with the Temple of the Winds. This is the beginning of the grand adventure. On April 2, , a video went up on Terry Goodkind's official site and YouTube channel promoting a new Richard and Kahlan novel that was released on August 16, Following an attack by the mysterious half people in the Dark Lands, Richard and Kahlan find themselves abandoned by their friends.
