Sword of Truth Reading Order

The Sword of Truth series can easily stand alongside the Wheel of Time or Game of Thrones as one of the most in-depth, immersive sags in fantasy history. With over a dozen books, and two seasons of a television show, it’s one of the best reads for epic fantasy fanatics.

What’s on the Sword of Truth Reading Order?

This is the unofficial Sword of Truth reading order for the series of books written by Terry Goodkind. This timeline also includes the Legend of the Seeker television show, which unfortunately only lasted two seasons and adapted the first two books of the series.

Even though the show took creative liberties to conform to the medium, it still stayed true to the original vision that Goodkind had, so for that reason, it is included here on the timeline.

Don’t forget to let us know if there’s anything missing, or if you have any questions about this or any of our timelines. We hope you enjoy!

Where to Start Reading the Sword of Truth?

We recommend you start at the beginning with Wizard’s First Rule, the first book written. However, it won’t spoil you too much to read the two prequels ahead of time. And there’s also the show, Legend of the Seeker, that serves as a good draw into the story for those not quite willing to commit to such a massive series.
