    If you haven’t read “NEST” by Terry it is not his typical SF. I loved the book. It just came out in 2017

    I have read all the Sword of Truth books. Just finished Severed Souls. Loved it, leaves room for another. I have one burning question. How can Erika use her agile on Kahlan when Ludwig Dreier is dead? The 3 Mord-Sith lost their agile’s power when Lord Rahl died.
