Review of chapter "Chapter One" from KingDarius
i can tell that this is based off the show, not the books. the few episodes ive watched were okay, but the series is a thousand times better. im assuming the crap about richard and darkhen being brothers is from the show. In the books, they are father and son, with richard's mother having been raped near the end of the first war between the midlands and d'hara, with his mother being the daughter of zed, who led the midland forces as first wizard. and with Darkhen Rahl's father being killed by wizard's fire cast by zed just as he brings up the barrier to the underworld, which horribly wounds Darkhen, leaving scars all over the lower half of his body. goodkind is one of my 3 favorite authors, in case you couldn't tell.:) the other 2 being steven erikson and robert jordan.

This is based off the show, yes. The brothers thing is one of the many changes they made for the show. I actually one got into the show this summer and got hooked. It's one of my favourites now... so of course it gets canceled. I know a lot of the book fans don't like it, or at least don't enjoy the show as much as the non-book fans, but I enjoyed. The second season in particular. Because of the series I actually bought all the books and have read 'Wizard's First Rule' and am well on my way through 'Stone of Tears'. These are the books the first and second seasons were loosely based on and I can't say one is really better than the other. Me, I'm enjoying both just as much as the other and think each works well for its respective media. I would definitely recommend giving it a try with an open mind for the differences.
Anyways, I'm rambling. Thanks for the review, I always appreciate them.

Cool. Very dark :)
I saw the kitten he gave the girl in the 'Legend of the Seeker' adaptation - he stroked it right up until the point he realized she'd betrayed him and then he killed it. Will he he give his half-brother one too?

Thanks, glad you liked it. It's just a one shot at the moment, but it's such a fun AU that I may do another ficlet one day. This Richards first meeting with Kahlan would be very different for one thing. Never thought about the kitten though. That could be fun too.
