That's Terry Brooks, right?
Ive got the first 7 or 8 of them... I quite enjoyed them, especially the first 2 or 3. But as the series went on I couldnt help noticing each book felt like it very strongly stuck to the same formula. The details and locations and magic involved changed, but the overall structure started to feel very familiar and imposing. The more I read, the more I noticed the repeated themes becoming overbearing.
Since then, Ive also read that apparently Richard is supposed be Goodkind's version of a perfect man, which just doesnt fit with my picture of him... One of the big structure points that gets repeated is his big mistakes that lead to dire consequences.
Id rate them probably 8/10 for the first book, progressing down to 6/10 by the last one I read.
I give it bonus points for not sugar coating the kinkiness with the Mord-Sith, though.
