27 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in English and held by 1,748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The exciting prequel to Terry Goodkind's much-loved, highly successful Sword of Truth series -- complete with a specially commissioned author's introduction and exclusive full-page illustrations by artist Keith Parkinson! Goodkind's fervent admireres have sent all his books in this landmark fantasy series soaring to the top of the best-seller lists ... and Debt of Bones will surely continue the tradition. Pre-dating Wizard's First Rule, and featuring one of the fans' favorite characters (First Wizard Zedd), this epochal tale gives fresh insight to that later story. It begins as a young woman arrives at Aydrindril to petition for help in the war against D'Hara and the vicious rule of Panis Rahl. Little does the First Wizard, much less the woman herself, realize an act from her past will force him into a cataclysmic duel of magic with Panis Rahl himself

Infected with the essence of death itself, robbed of his power as a war wizard, Richard must race against time to uncover and stop the infernal conspiracy assembling itself behind the wall far to the north. His friends and allies are already captives of this fell combination, and Kahlan, also touched by death's power, will die completely if Richard fails. Bereft of magic, Richard has only his sword, his wits, his capacity for insight -- and an extraordinary companion, the young Samantha, a healer just coming into her powers. Compelling, fast-moving, and intense, The Third Kingdom is a powerful tale that welcomes new readers to Terry Goodkind's world, while opening up new vistas of worldbuilding for longtime readers of the adventures of Richard Rahl and Kahlan Amnell"--
