A year has passed since Elly the elf returned home to Alendria after being stranded in the human realm of Gaya. She has been undergoing exhaustive training with the Order of Kaizendil, and though she has learned to teleport, wield a sword, and use a bow and arrow with some skill, she is utterly terrified of the impending task that awaits her: to seek out the Four Guardians of Gaya in the hopes that they will restore the four poisoned orbs of power that sustain the Tree of Alendria. After a years wait, the Order finally receives the first signal from Graille, the Guardian of Light. As Elly embarks on a dangerous journey in Gaya to find the Guardian, she gets caught in a web of intrigue that takes her all the way to Korea, where she meets an old woman and her grandson who turn out to be pivotal to the restoration of the first orb. Along the way, she learns of a deep, dark secret that the adults in her life have kept from her since her birth, a devastating truth about a girl named Goldie, who has been hiding out in London from her abusive foster mother for the past year. In this second book in the series, Elly faces many vile enemies and challenges on her quest, and her path eventually converges with Goldies

About the author

KATHRYN TSE-DURHAM is the author of Ellanor and the Search for Organoth Blue Amber, the first book in the Ellanor series. She lives in Hong Kong with her husband and family and recently added an adorable corgi to the mix. She wishes there were more libraries and bookshops where magic and dreams come to life in a city preoccupied with brand labels and soaring property prices. Kathryn believes, just as JRR Tolkien imparted, that if more of us valued food and cheer and song (and books!) above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier 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.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, Warbreaker is the story of two sisters, who happen to be princesses, the God King one of them has to marry, the lesser god who doesn't like his job, and the immortal who's still trying to undo the mistakes he made hundreds of years ago.

Their world is one in which those who die in glory return as gods to live confined to a pantheon in Hallandren's capital city and where a power known as BioChromatic magic is based on an essence known as breath that can only be collected one unit at a time from individual people.

By using breath and drawing upon the color in everyday objects, all manner of miracles and mischief can be accomplished. It will take considerable quantities of each to resolve all the challenges facing Vivenna and Siri, princesses of Idris; Susebron the God King; Lightsong, reluctant god of bravery, and mysterious Vasher, the Warbreaker.
