Law of Nines sequel?
« on: August 07, 2010, 08:31:08 AM »
I am most of the way through the book, and am really enjoying it so far. So I can't help but wonder, will there be another? or is it just a one shot deal and it's back to Richard/Kahlan with the Omen Machine (and the inevitable trilogy that will spawn)?

I hope he keeps going with the omen machine story i REALLY want to see richard learn to use his gift but then again i havent read law of nines yet i should read it before i really say that ..... i just want richard to be able to wild out war wizard style anytime he wants to
It is the balance to life: death. It is the dance with death. It is the law a war wizard lives by, or he dies.

I just finished Law of Nines last night. It was better than I was expecting given teh way it sounded from the book description.


There is room for a sequel, but I think that any sequel that gets made would have to involve the SoT world more than LoN did.

The trick to that is... How do you set that up if you're still telling the plot from Alexander's point of view? If no one from his world can go through the gateway safely because they lack the spark of the gift required. Though an easy way to set that up would be to say that his connection to the other world is evidence of a spark of the gift, which would make sense, because Richard claimed that the new world would have no magic, and thus, no connection to other worlds... But if there are no connections... then how did Alexander see the woods Jax liked to hang in?

I was with it right up until the ending. I felt it was rushed, I mean the SoT books had so much detail and life when it came to final fights, this guy just lifted a gun and killed them.

That's what happens when you introduce firearms into the picture, fights end quickly. Although I would like to point out that... There was plenty of detail in the final scenes of LoN, each shot was shown as much as it could be, and the description of the knife fight was very good.

Perhaps, but it really lacks the beauty of a clean finish.

One thing I've noticed about Goodkind novels... They rarely have a definite finish. Each one leads into the next well enough that you could almost put them in a single book. Granted, that single book would be one of those "I checked this out weeks ago for a bit of light reading" books (Harry potter and the sorcerer's stone reference ^_^) But it could be one book.

Personally, I loved it. What makes Goodkind novels so good, and most of life for that matter, is the characters we meet. Some we love, some we would love be the ones to pull the trigger on. The fact that we attach so strongly to these characters and react so much in and of itself speaks well toward's Goodkind's style of story storytelling.
But you must understand, the truly intriguing thing about opposites is that they are quite often so very much alike.
