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.

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.

Bags! This is a good prequel.

Would you listen to Debt of Bones again? Why?

Yes! This is a good prequel to the Sword of Truth Series. It is a bit short though. I would have loved to get to know more of the characters during that time. But, Zedd alone makes up for this. It was great to know the younger wizard.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Zedd! Bags! He is truly the Trickster!

What about Sam Tsoutsouvas’s performance did you like?

His performance was spot on!

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

The trick.
