I just finished reading "Wizard's First Rule" this evening. It's the first enchanting tale of the Sword of Truth series. If you like Lord of the Rings, Wizard of Oz, King Arthur and Robin Hood, or Joan of Arc, you will enjoy these grown up fairy tales by Terry Goodkind.
It's also a really entertaining and addicting TV show. The first season is very true to the first book, although perhaps with a few less special effects. I haven't seen many episodes of the second season yet, but it's suppose to be to be based on the second and third books! I highly recommend reading and watching these delightful adventures!
