The Seeker of Truth
It’s a TV adaptation that follows a journey of an innocent and extremely cute guy named Richard Cypher (act. Craig Horner). His over-the-top-positive and open heart falls for a much more mentally mature, gorgeous and mysterious lady in white Kahlan Amnell (act. Bridget Regan) who possesses wickedly impressive power over love and devotion. Based on the series of fantasy books by Terry Goodkind.
Millions of readers the world over have been held spellbound by this valiant tale vividly told. Now, enter Terry Goodkind’s world, the world of The Sword of Truth. In the aftermath of the brutal murder of his father, a mysterious woman, Kahlan 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. In their 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 story. One Rule. Witness the birth of a legend. – Written by Terry Goodkind.
