Présentation de l'éditeur

From the internationally bestselling author of the Sword of Truth series, comes a new Richard and Kahlan novel, sequel to The Omen Machine.

The bloodthirsty Jit is dead, and against all odds Richard and Kahlan have survived. But a new menace has attacked them in the Dark Lands. Infected with the essence of death itself, robbed of his power as a war wizard, Richard must race against time to uncover and stop the infernal conspiracy assembling itself behind the wall far to the north. His friends and allies are already captives of this fell combination, and Kahlan, also touched by death's power, will die completely if
Richard fails.

Bereft of magic, Richard has only his sword, his wits, his capacity for insight – and an extraordinary companion, the young Samantha, a healer just coming into her powers.

Compelling, fast-moving, and intense, The Third Kingdom is a powerful tale that welcomes new readers to Terry Goodkind's world, while opening up new vistas of worldbuilding for longtime readers of the adventures of Richard Rahl and Kahlan Amnell.

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

Terry Goodkind est le nouveau prodige de la Fantasy américaine. En quelques mois, son cycle de L'Epée de Vérité est devenu un best-seller international, vendu à plus de 20 millions d'exemplaires. Pour la première fois depuis Terry Brooks, un auteur a de nouveau réussi l'exploit de réunir tous les publics sous sa bannière. Traîtrise, aventure, intrigue, amour, tous les ingrédients sont réunis dans ce cycle pour en faire la plus grande fresque de Fantasy depuis Tolkien. Né en 1948 à Omaha, Nebraska, Goodkind a d'abord intégré une école d'art de la ville pour se spécialiser dans la représentation de la faune et de la flore. Par la suite, il a opté pour une carrière de menuisier, avant de se consacrer à la fabrication d'instruments de musique, comme les violons, pour enfin s'intéresser à la restauration d'artéfacts rares et exotiques du monde entier. Toutes ces expériences ont contribué à faire de lui un écrivain à part entière et se retrouvent dans ses romans. En 1983, il part s'installer avec son épouse Jeri dans les montagnes boisées du nord-est américain qu'il aime tant, surplombant la mer. Il construira lui même sa maison où il finira dix ans plus tard par écrire La Première leçon du sorcier qui obtint un succès immédiat. Le dixième tome de cette série qui en comptera onze est sorti aux USA en juin 2006. Vous n'avez pas fini de rêver...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 De la magie, encore de la magie! 24 août 2013
Par Amy
Format:Format Kindle
Par où commencer? On s'est tellement attaché aux personnages que Mr.Goodkind a crée qu'il en devient frustrant de finir un de ses livres en sachant qu'il nous faudra attendre 1 an pour en lire la suite. Le Troisième Royaume est la suite de la Machine à Présages, le tout étant lié à la Légende de Magda Searus. Le livre tient ses promesses, on y retrouve Kahlan mais surtout Richard, en proie à une nouvelle course contre la montre, et contre la mort. Ce tome est particulièrement noir et violent, tout en restant très émotionnel et réussissant à nous tirer les larmes à la toute fin.

Action, emotion, THE THIRD KINGDOM brings that and more. What to say without spoiling anything ? "READ THIS BOOK" should be safe enough.

What becomes of Arc the Bishop? Events are low until Kahlan gets kidnapped.
The explanations of Abbot Dreier of what he does on his victims are upsetting, it's good for him not for them!
They will find a way out but then?

Bien curieuse de savoir comment ils vont faire, que devient Hannis Arc the bishop?
Les événements sont un peu lent jusqu'à ce qu'on enlève Kahlan, puis de l'action, du combat.
Les justifications des pratique de Dreier m'ont énérvés, le don de libérer ses victimes, tu parles!
De l'espoir arrive.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 disappointing, one-sided, where was kahlan? 22 août 2013
Par flower - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Warning: plot spoilers abound here, move along if you don't want to know any details of the book.

I see from the reviews here already that some people liked the new, shorter style of this novel. I didn't mind that so much, rather what was left vs discarded. It feels like half a book. The pluses: some new characters and places were set up nicely, and the bad guys were fleshed out a bit as separate identities. The ties in to the old war / previous wars were interesting, although the rehash of life vs underworld is beginning to wear thin. Cant we do better than green veils? The really annoying part is the complete unevenness that has come to be between the two main characters, Richard and Kahlan. The original series was wonderful because they had two equally powerful and interesting characters that held their own. Richard's story was always dominant, but Kahlan raised armies, attacked problems, and solved them herself. It was an even partnership. Starting with the last book in the old series, Confessor, Kahlan may as well be an after note - she was tormented by Jagang for an entire book, but not instrumental at all in the resolution, she just got saved by Richard. The Omen machine had the same issue - it started fine, but then Kahlan runs off into danger, gets captured, gets saved, no involvement on her part. Half the time she isn't even conscious. This one was even worse - she didnt even appear until over half way through the book, and then when she woke from unconsciousness (again) she immediately got captured, and spent the (short) remainder of the book hanging from a ceiling. One conversation with the bad guy, serving to reveal a key plot point about his goals and methods, then nothing. Richard on the other hand, spends a lot of the book finding out whats happening, interacting with a major new character, interacting with all the main players, saving everyone. Only he can read the crucial message and clues from the past (even the confessors' side of the story arc now belongs to Richard). In the old series, this might have been true, but the second half of the book would have an equivalent journey for Kahlan (and Cara, or Zedd, or Nikki - they didnt fare any better). I would assume Goodkind had just cut the book off at the half way point, if it wasn't a pattern now. Kahlan being captured was fine - when Richard was captured by Mord Sith he suffered, but managed to gather an understanding of them that allowed him to escape and ultimately save them all. There was character and plot development happening all over the place. The passivity is the issue. Old Kahlan defeats an entire army with nothing but a few recruits, and deftly maneuvers leaders and kingdoms alike. She inspires entire kingdoms to follow her. Now, apparently Richard is in charge of everything: leading, discovering, deciding, exploring, etc. Kahlan in this book interacts with almost no one, discovers (almost) nothing, influences literally nothing, is not changed at all. Her "big escape" at the end , when she manages to get out of her cell, involves a convenient diversion and her jumping out a window ... straight into the arms of Richard. The irony is that these new books are billed as the "Richard and Kahlan" stories, yet they are a pale imitation of what that used to mean. Goodkind has exactly one book to turn it around or I'm done.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 What happened to Goodkind's writing? 1 septembre 2013
Par JohnThomas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I have been a long-time fan of Terry Goodkind and this series with Richard and Kahlan. But this book is a huge disappointment. The writing is childish, repetitive (he frequently says the very same thing only one paragraph later) and awkward. I thought that perhaps an elementary school kid wrote this book. The story is interesting but the writing is as bad as it gets. No character development, weak sentences, and nonsensical sequences of events. We even have to wonder how Zed and Nicci were able to destroy so many of the bad guys with Wizard's Fire at the end when in the beginning they could only push air at them. Somehow they got their power back. A huge disappointment!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Exposition with a side of Repetition 7 décembre 2013
Par Gary Miller - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I LOVED the Sword of Truth series so it pains me to say it, but stay away from this hot mess of a book. I quit at 177 pages in, 170 of which were exposition. As a bonus, the exposition included a ridiculous amount of repetition from card board characters whose voice had nothing to do with their POV but rather with whatever the author needed communicated in yet another expository scene.

Let me sum it up this way. If the new Terry Goodkind (man, I miss the old one) had written the Avengers movie it would have taken place entirely in the Shawarma restaurant with Director Fury debriefing the heroes. The conversation would have gone something like this;

Fury - So, what happened?
Hulk - I created some epic destruction in an effort to save NY.
Fury - I see.
Hulk - The widespread destruction I caused saved mankind and now I'm eating shawarma.
Fury - Does shawarma taste better after causing so much havoc?
Hulk - It does. Why do you think I decided to cause so much destruction and help to save mankind. It was so I could exercise my free will to eat more shawarma.
Fury - You seem unusually eloquent today for a big green monster.
Hulk - I need to describe to you how epic my destruction was and I can't do that by just saying, "Hulk smash!". By the way, did I mention how evil the aliens were that I destroyed so majestically?
Fury - Please, tell me more.
Hulk - Well, there were these really evil aliens that I had to destroy...

*Ugh* Just terrible. It makes me want to cry.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The story continues 23 août 2013
Par Alan Nitikman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Okay, I'm hooked again. Goodkind has created such strong characters in Richard, Kahlan, Cara, Zedd, and Nicci, that I really want to see what happens to them. He's created some strong new villains and heroines, as well. He's great at that. He's extended his well-imagined world into "The Dark Lands" and tied R & K's story into his story of Magda Searus, The First Confessor, which was nice. I just wish he wouldn't spend quite so much time on filler, Richard thinking and lecturing Samantha, and sometimes saying in 10 pages what he could have expressed in a sentence, like, instead of [minor Spoiler Alert] extending Samantha's regret at not being able to do as he asked, after doing exactly that and saving their lives, with Richard enabling her meandering, how about just "hey, you got there when it mattered and we're here"? Or pages and pages and pages of traversing forests and, then, pages and pages and pages of climbing around rocks while avoiding sheets of green phosphorescence. I feel as if some of this extended description, rumination, monologuing, etc., is just a way to fill hundreds of pages for what is really 2 or 3 key developments that could have been handled in 2 or 3 chapters.

But, as I've learned with other good writers, you take their foibles with their strengths when the story is good enough and the characters compelling enough. Overall, Goodkind is still a great storyteller. I'm still a fan.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Why was this even called a Richard and Kahlan novel? 25 août 2013
Par Imjustsayin524 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Im a fan of Goodkind's work and I absolutely loved the Sword of Truth series but as of the Omen Machine and The Third Kingdom I must ask what the heck happened?

It pains me to write this review because I wanted so badly for this to be an awesome book just like I wanted the Omen Machine to be an awesome book but unfortunately it wasn't. Both books just dont have that same richness as the other eleven. There is a huge change in quality and the characters sometimes feel like cardboard cut outs of themselves. One of my biggest peeves about Goodkind's work is that it can be wordy and really repetitive. A sentence is written 5 to 10 times, in 5 to 10 different ways. He really needs a new editor.

As for the story, it didn't really get good until about halfway in. And I found myself being absolutely irritated most of the time. Especially with one particular scene where Henrik is explaining to Richard what happened while he and Kahlan were unconscious. That had to be the most stupidest cringe worthy scene I have ever read because first of all Henrik was highly detailed in his description to the point where it doesn't sound natural. This is a perfect example of show don't tell. Instead of writing this epic and horrific scene Goodkind instead has Henrik explain with such thorough and unbelievable detail the events that unfolded before Richard woke up. This just comes off as lazy writing. The second thing wrong with this is Henrik is supposed to be a child. The majority of the stuff that he says doesn't sound like anything that a child would say and you completely forget this. The same thing can be said for the other new character Sammie, I believe she's supposed to be 15 or something yet sometimes it feels like she's more like 7 or 8.

Now moving along to the title of this review. Why was this called a Richard and Kahlan novel? It took 3/4 of the book before Kahlan even enters into the picture.She spends the majority of it unconscious. This is just disappointing because what the heck happened to Kahlan the warlord, commanding armies and devising battle strategies and just being fricken awesome? This woman has proved time and time again that she is more than capable of handling herself and the situations that she gets into. So its highly disappointing to see such an amazing character reduced to the damsel in distress type. She has become almost overshadowed by Richard. We're stuck with the formula of Kahlan gets captured and Richard rescues her.

Overall once I got to the second half I did enjoy it a little better. I didnt hate it I just feel like saying "Goodkind you know better" and then giving him a slap on the wrist. Im expecting a lot more in the sequel hopefully he delivers.
