Legend of the Seeker aka Wizards First Rule
Hey guys and girls i have some exciting news for our South African friends!
Most of you should know about Terry Goodkind and his Sword of Truth series, the first one being Wizard’s First Rule.
Now for those of you who are still in the dark, the first book has in fact been converted into a TV show, aptly named Legend of the Seeker. It has already aired over seas, but will now also be coming to our SA screens.
The series will follow Richard(Craig Horner) and Kahlan(Bridget Regan) and their progress according to the first book in the series.
They are not the only ones though, we will also find the grand wizard Zeddicus Zu’l Zorander(Bruce Spenser) and Darken Rahl(Craig Parker), as well as the rest of the great cast and character from the book.
I am particularly looking forward to the appearance of the Mord Sith; yes they are in there as well!
As for those of you in the dark about the Sword of Truth series, you have some serious reading to do as there are about 10 books in the series! 🙂
The first book, Wizard’s First Rule, introduces us to the characters Richard Cypher and the Mother Confessor Kahlan. The two of them, along with a great group of supporting characters must work fast to save their two lands from the terrible armies of Darken Rahl. Darken Rahl however is not only after control of the kingdoms but also after an ancient book of power that was hidden and out of his reach, until the boundary started to fail. Now the small group must work fast to stop Darken Rahl and his evil plans, and this means Richard will most likely have to kill Darken, but can he learn to unleash the power inside himself and the Sword of Truth before it is to late?
Well there you have it a short summary of what the story is all about, but that is not the only thing I have. If you want a sneak peak at the first 10min of the first episode, start the video below! 🙂
Janice Marinelli, president of Disney-ABC Domestic Television, said in a statement that they are happy to continue their relationship into a second season of so we can look forward to that as well. 🙂
