Terry Goodkind's novels of the Sword of Truth set a new standard for epic storytelling in a fully-realized created world. Now Goodkind returns to that world for a new cycle of tales, centering on Richard Cypher and Kahlan Amnell.
The Omen Machine begins directly after the events of the Sword of Truth, but it starts a new and independent storyline. New readers can begin here, while longtime fans of the Sword of Truth novels will be captivated by a new tale of the characters that fascinated them before.
Hidden deep underground for millennia, discovered only by chance, the mysterious machine has awakened, to begin issuing a series of ominous and alarmingly accurate omens.
As the wizard Zeddicus attempts to destroy the sinister device, it issues a cataclysmic omen involving Richard and Kahlan, foretelling an impending event beyond anyone's ability to prevent it.
With catastrophe imminent, the machine then reveals that it is within its power to withdraw the omen...on fulfillment of an impossible demand.
Terry Goodkind has been a wildlife painter, a cabinet maker, and a violin maker, before turning to the writing career that put him at the top of the New York Times bestseller list. With his wife Jeri, he spends the majority of his time in the desert Southwest.
