Death’s Mistress: Sister of Darkness: The Nicci Chronicles, Volume I
The New and Old World are now under the rule of Lord Rahl of D’Harra. Prophecy has ended and peace has been brought to the lands. Yet few lands know they are now under a new leader. Richard has chosen Nicci and Nathan to spread the word of the victory to the remote lands. But will a spinoff of the Wizard’s First Rule series focused on Nicci give Richard and Kahlan fans their fix for love and adventure? Just as Frasier was a successful spinoff from Cheers, so, I believe, the Nicci Chronicles will be to the seventeen epic novels of the Sword of Truth series.
Death’s Mistress: Sister of Darkness immediately captures the attention of the reader and returns them to the New and Old World. Although prophecy has come to an end, it still manages to complicate a simple journey as soon as the quest to spread the good news begins. Nathan and Nicci make their way to the Old World and, as Lord’s Rahl’s ambassadors, find it in desperate need of his leadership.
What should have been an enjoyable journey of celebration finds Nathan, the oldest wizard alive and a prophet now without prophecy, confused as his gift disappears altogether. And Nicci, the most powerful sorceress in the world, is unknowingly designated as the world’s only hope. Let Volume One of the Chronicles of Nicci begin.
