Faith of the Fallen: A Sword of Truth Novel
By Terry Goodkind
Why this book?
A sword-and-sorcery classic! Faith of the Fallen was my absolute favourite of the Sword of Truth series, which puts it up against some very stiff competition. One of the reasons it was my favourite, and why it’s being included in this list, is the extremes the main characters are forced into and what it reveals about them. As the hero Richard has spent the previous five books becoming more powerful and capable, it’s fascinating and inspiring to see how he reacts when the story’s villain renders him seemingly powerless and attempts to break his spirit.
