The newest Richard and Kahlan novel! Coming 2011.
I am uber excited about this info! Although I only got halfway through The Sword of Truth Series I am restarting it and I was always sad to think the Confessor was the last book in the series because I absolutely love Richard and Kahlan.
Now finding out about The Omen Machine I am both excited and scared...because of the synopsis.
"An accident leads to the discovery of a mysterious machine that has rested hidden deep underground for countless millennia. The machine awakens to begin issuing a series of increasingly alarming, if minor, omens. The omens turn out to be astonishingly accurate, and ever more ominous. As Zedd tries to figure out how to destroy the sinister device, the machine issues a cataclysmic omen involving Richard and Kahlan, foretelling an impending event beyond anyone's ability to stop. As catastrophe approaches, the machine then reveals that it is within its power to withdraw the omen ...In exchange for an impossible demand."
Is it just me or does that sound a bit like a Sci-Fi Novel?
I don't seem to remember there being any machines in the Sword of Truth world or it talking...
That was more Wizard of Oz type fantasy rather than Midland Fantasy.
Hopefully it will have a little more context once I get around to it...
