I felt something similar while reading The Law of Nines. I'd say that this book is the most fast-paced of all of the Goodkind novels (so far) and it definitely leaves me wanting more

The Law of Nines is that rare book that both mixes and transcends genres, and it does it with force and intelligence. An otherwise average book. Terry Goodkind has a way of drawing you into the characters he creates.

The Law of Nines is that rare book that both mixes and transcends genres, and it does it with force and intelligence. Fast paced, riveting and scary. It will leave the reader breathless. As I began reading this book, I began to empathize with the main character immediately. He is truly a normal guy placed in extraordinary circumstances. I was astonished by how similar the main character was in thought and action to Richard, the main character from his Sword of Truth books. Goodkind has been critiqued in the past as putting too much ideology into his books.

This is one of my favorite Goodkind novels. It takes place a thousand (or more) years after the Sword of Truth series, but instead of taking place in that world, it takes place right *here*, on Earth, and in modern day! Once again, we are met with charismatic and principled protagonists, and evil, brutish villains. As always, the protagonists are defenders of life and freedom, while the villains are warmongers and terrorists who wish to subjugate the masses to claim power.

But a huge difference is that there is no magic in this world, so people must rely on their intellect, wit, and strength (both in spirit and in body) to solve the problems that are thrown at them. But, fortunately, the playing field is even in that regard, since the villains cannot use magic, either.

I remember feeling super excited while reading Wizard's First Rule, and I'm sure that part of it was the newness of the story. I felt something similar while reading The Law of Nines. I'd say that this book is the most fast-paced of all of the Goodkind novels (so far) and it definitely leaves me wanting more. I hope he continues this story as a series, but he wraps things up fairly well enough so that this one can stand as a single installment if that's all he intends it to be.

I noticed that there is quite a bit of criticism about this one, and I cannot figure out why. Maybe most readers cling too much to preconception. This is really not a fantasy novel, and since it takes place in this world, there is really no magic here. But all of his books have not concentrated primarily on magic anyway, but on human spirit, and the struggle of good vs. evil. Anyone who enjoys a story like that, and anyone who does not cling to preconceptions about what a Goodkind novel should be will love this book.
Wasn't sure what it could be about, didn't start like a Sword Of Truth novel. But reading more I realized that it was like a possible future or prophecy at least a thousand years after Richard Rahl and Kahlan. It turned out to be an intriguing story line of the descendants of Richard and Kahlan. The more I read, the more it made sense and the more I understood......and the very end, reading what Jax's family name was made it even more clear. Quite a pleasant surprise! I will have this book among the rest with no problem, because it belongs with the Sword of Truth novels! Thank you, Terry Goodkind! I just hope there will be some more related novels coming because I would mourn the series ending for good. If it does, I will re-read all of them again, with the same kind of enjoyment that all of these books have given me.
Perhaps one of Goodkind's last true masterpieces. It is an offshoot from The Sword of Truth series set in 'our world'. It was connected so beautifully with so loose but tangible connections to that other universe that it had me in awe the first time I read it. Not to mention it was very interesting to see Goodkind's particular sort of visual philosophic based writing in a universe that is our own.

It doesn't have alot of the strength of the human spirit and social philosophy themes that TSoT has but I feel that is accurate. There are heavy overtones of something being 'not quite right' in the world and how people are living in the perception of the MC and I feel that is something I strongly relate to. Don't want to spoil too much but I really loved the extra attention to creativity and 'explorative thinking' and how our modern society views such things.
I was not impressed with this book. The concept was great. The romance between Jax and Alex was rushed for no real reason that I could see. I get the parallels that we're trying to be made, but I feel the entire book was rushed and the storyline forced for the purpose of the romance. Character development and background was a bit lacking and still didn't fit when background was brought up for the sake of the story. Editing could be improved in a few places.

If you like The Sword of Truth series, I would only recommend this for completionists. It's okay overall, but could have been stretched out longer and been much better. This is the first book of Terry Goodkind's that I haven't thoroughly enjoyed.
I enjoyed the book very much. Readers who enjoyed the Sword of Truth novels stand a good chance of enjoying this one. Those who read it and haven't read them may well be inspired to at least check them out. The only thing that cost the review the 5th star was that it seemed there was a little more narrative than I might have liked. I'd probably have given the book 4.5 stars if that was an option. Also, I'm not really sure there ever was an adequate explanation of presactly what the Law of Nines (the law itself) is. Don't worry, that doesn't negatively impact the read.
