I am heart broken tonight to learn of the death of my favorite author. I have never been a person who enjoyed reading for pleasure. I had never found any books that truly interested me or kept me engaged in the story. When I found Terry Goodkind’s books in 2008 my mind was opened up to a whole new world. I feel in love with the characters as well as their world. His words on paper are captivating and leave you desiring to find out what happens next. He has blessed me by helping me find a love of reading. He will be deeply missed.

Your flame has been extinguished, your pen has written its last word. You will not be forgotten though. Your words have encouraged generations of writers and readers. Rest good sir, we will never forget your gifts to this world.

OMG NO, this is truly a sad for me as Terry Goodkind was my all time favorite author. I will remember all the laughs, sadness, lessons, morals, and all the emotions your books gave to me. The characters you brought into my life will be like friends and family forever. Your books were not only profoundly great but they were literally important to me and taught me lessons i needed to know for life. I am proud to say that i have read your intensely extensive Sword Of Truth Series all the way through 3 times in my life and turned so many people on to your books with all of those people falling in love with your work. I now think of a memorable part of one of your books where the Mord Sith lay dying and wanting to see the squirrels one more time before she passed. Thank you sir for your many many years of story telling and sharing them with us, you will be remembered as one of the greats. Brightest blessings to your loved ones on this sad sad day. For so many of us you will live on in those pages you so masterfully crafted for us and i will imagine you and Richard Rahl sitting by a roaring fire discussing the life long adventures you both had.

This news gave me the worst chills…incredibly sad news. Rest peacefully and thank you so very much for your works that you shared with us.

This is very sad news indeed. I had the honor of meeting him at his book signings. He and his wife were most gracious and spent a lot of time meeting and talking with his fans. He will be sorely missed. My deepest condolences to his wife Jeri.

Condolences to your family and thank you for all the wonderful memories as a kid growing up and losing myself into the sword of truth series

Landon Colin Luesing wrote 
I found the Sword of Truth and learned the Wizard’s First Rule when I was barely 10 years old, in 1995. I grew up without a father, and I had to pick the characteristics from people in my life that I wanted to emulate and embrace. Finding this book and following this series as it unfolded was a literal God-send. The traits embodied by the characters in Terry’s books, like Richard, gave me a moral ideal to strive for. They gave me the courage to be strong, and to always speak out or stand up for what I believe in.

They gave me the resolve to always own my life and my destiny; and to sweat, bleed, fight, and sometimes be moved to tears for what I care about. There are times that Terry’s novels pulled me back from some very dark places in my life. I don’t know if I would have become the same man that I am today without these stories and characters. Learning of Terry Goodkind’s passing has rent a hole in my soul. My condolences go out to his family and friends, he – and the world he created – will always have a special place in my heart.
