Trouble will find you
They watch you through mirrors.
'Your mother was twenty-seven when it came to her. Now you're twenty-seven, and it's come to you.'
The skin of Alex's arms tingled with goose bumps. By her twenty-seventh birthday insanity had come to his mother..
Turning twenty-seven may be terrifying for some, but for Alex, a struggling artist living in the mid-western United States, it is cataclysmic. Inheriting a huge expanse of land should have made him a rich and happy man; but something about this birthday, his name, and the beautiful woman whose life he just saved, has suddenly made him - and everyone he loves - into a target. A target for extreme and uncompromising violence.
Where do you turn when your own reflection spells doom?
In Alex, Terry Goodkind brings to life a modern hero in a whole new kind of high-octane thriller.
~ This is the first book I have read of Terry Goodkinds that wasn't one of his Sword of Truth Novels, which are some of my favorite books of all times. This book was great because it drew some of the back story from the Sword of Truth Novels. It brought the fantasy land to present day. One of the main through lines of the book is comparing technology to magic which is quite interesting.
