In the aftermath of the brutal murder of his father, a mysterious
woman, Hahlan Amnell, appears in Richard Cypher's forest sanctuary
seeking help ...and more. His world, his very beliefs, are shattered
when ancient debts come due with thundering violence.
darkest hour, hunted relentlessly, tormented by treachery and loss,
Kahlan calls upon Richard to reach beyond his sword - to invoke within
himself something more noble. Neither knows that the rules of battle
have just changed...or that their time has run out.
This is the beginning. One book. One Rule. Withness the birth of a lengend.
