The First Confessor by Terry Goodkind was a good read. I loved reading the story of the First Confessor, although, because I have read the entire Sword of Truth series, I felt like there was not much that I hadn't expected to happen. I didn't seem to get attached to the characters, Magda and Merrit, the way I expected to (like I did with Kahlan and Richard). Overall, it was a good read, a well written book by Mr. Goodkind as usual. I will probably continue to buy his books and follow the story of The First Confessor.
