Terrified and feeling helpless, Blue knew that hiding under the bed would not protect her from the violent killers roaming through the home. Moments earlier, Blue had just helped her friend escape out of the second-story bedroom window, but she was now trapped in that same bedroom with no means of escape.
Blue Waters, possessing a quirky name given to her by her free-spirited parents, is an unassuming contract attorney whose very average life has just been upended by the recent death of her parents and a family secret that was taken to the grave.
In the midst of this life-changing event, Blue throws caution to the wind and suddenly finds herself engaged in a romantic fling that wasn’t intended, a murderous cover-up that jeopardizes her life and the lives of her friends, and the uncovering of the family secret.
Filled with romance, suspense, and harrowing danger, Blue Waters is a nonstop roller-coaster ride with unexpected twist and turns that keep the reader wondering what comes next.
It is now being developed as one of the most ambitious television miniseries of all time. Executive Producer Sam Raimi (director of the three Spider-Man movies), in collaboration with Disney/ABC, is creating a 22-episode adaptation of the book to be filmed in New Zealand.
Richard and Kahlan’s story unfolds over ten more novels, collectively known as the Sword of Truth series, concluding with Confessor in 2007. Placing Goodkind in the elite club of #1 New York Times bestselling authors, the series has sold more than twenty million copies to date worldwide.
In Wizard’s First Rule, Goodkind introduced the world to an ordinary forest guide, Richard Cypher, and the mysterious, powerful woman he comes to love, Kahlan Amnell. Learning his true identity, Richard accepts his destiny as the one man who can stop the bloodthirsty tyrant Darken Rahl. Hunted relentlessly, betrayed and alone, Kahlan calls upon Richard to reach beyond his sword and invoke something more noble within himself as the final confrontation with Darken Rahl looms.
The importance of Wizard’s First Rule is sourced in Goodkind taking on the toughest of all literary challenges: to tell an electrifying story of action, violence, and adventure that also makes people think, and that would influence the choices and actions of its readers.
