“Wizard's First Rule” by Terry Goodkind. This is definitely NOT for the faint of heart. A very good book, though. In this book, a very extraordinary man, Richard, must protect the Mother Confessor, Kahlan, against the Dark Wizard, Darken Rahl. Now I must warn you this book is very, very bizarre. Very...unique. And rather gory! I rate this book three stars on a scale of 1 to 5.
