Publisher's Summary

A milestone of storytelling set in the world of The Sword of Truth, Debt of Bones is the story of young Abby's struggle to win the aid of the wizard Zedd Zorander, the most important man alive.
Abby is trapped, not only between both sides of the war, but in a mortal conflict between two powerful men. For Zedd, who commands power most men can only imagine, granting Abby's request would mean forsaking his sacred duty. With the storm of the final battle about to save the life of a child...but neither can escape the shadow of an ancient betrayal.
With time running out, their only choice may be a debt of bones. The world - for Zedd, for Abby, for everyone - will never again be the same.

Wonderful back story

I really liked this book. It filled in so many places and questions about Zed and his history. It gave a great explanation of how the great barriors were put up and why. It shows a playful side of wizard life in the wizards keep. There is a wonderful connection that is made around the confessors and their duties in the new world. If you are a fan of the Wizards First Rule and the Sword of truth series, you will enjoy learning some of the reasons why things are as they are in the midlands. I recomend this one.

A debt that needs to be paid

Debt of Bones is the story of a sorceress' daughter Abby and the First Wizard Zed. Abby has a debt of bones owing and she wants Zed to pay it by saving her family from the clutches of the D'Haran army. Zed is trying to end the war between D'Hara led by Panis Rahl and the Midlands. Debt of Bones tells the story of the origin of the boundaries between D'Hara, the Westlands and the Midlands. It also reveals the role Zed played in the death of Richard's grandfather Panis Rahl and introduces us to Richard's mother, Zed's daughter as a child. It is brilliantly narrated by Sam Tsoutsouvas who captures the emotion of the characters and is a great little prequel to Wizard's First Rule the first book in the Sword of Truth series written by Terry Goodkind. I recommend that readers new to Terry Goodkind read and listen to Wizard's First Rule before Debt of Bones, so they will have a stronger understanding of what the story is about.

The book itself is captivating, I enjoy the trials they have to endure along there journey. It keeps you on your toes to find out what happens.

What about Sam Tsoutsouvas’s performance did you like?

He keeps the story alive and is not boring, he is easy listening,

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

all his books are great, you can really feel the passion and fear of the characters and really get to grips with the plot. I could not stop listening just to find out what happens with Richard and Khalan.

The first book in the series is Wizards First Rule and there are about 11 books in the series would definitely recommend if you are a fantasy book lover or are into Tolkien type novels.
