The year is 1943. With the ink scarcely dry on her diploma, Olivia leaves Lander, Wyoming, for New York City. In a quick turn of events, she lands a translating job working for a man known only as the Major. Soon she is living an idyllic life, with exciting and rewarding work; Vivian, her roommate, is also her best friend. Then there is an accident, and in a flash, Vivian is gone. At that dark moment, a late-night visitor whisks Olivia to a secret world of fairies, elves, and leprechauns, where the surprise of her life awaits; the queen selects her to be the Protector of the Realm. Now Olivia is flying into Nazi Germany, unarmed save for her dog and a few gadgets. Her mission is simple—rescue the Major, locate an evil Jinn, and stop him from destroying the planet. In this historical fantasy novel, as the world is at war, an evil Jinn conjures an atomic bomb, but with the help of a secret alliance, a young woman sets out to save the world.

Wizard’s First Rule, the first novel by Terry Goodkind, was a phenomenon from the moment it was published by Tor Books in 1994, selling more than 100,000 copies in North America alone. It still sells more than 100,000 copies a year and has gone on to bestsellerdom in the United Kingdom and in more than twenty foreign translations as well as audiobook form.

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.
