    That's amazing! Curious what you thought of the TV series? That's actually how I discovered the books.

    That's how I discovered them as well. I think the TV show was great, as a separate thing from the books. Too much was lost in the TV show, and I wish it had had as big a budget as GoT or something else that epic.

    I was just thinking that! Glad to hear you loved the show also! I wish it could have run for at least another 10 seasons haha. Maybe they'll reboot it one day?

    I would have liked to see them at least do the main storyline. Maybe not the sequels. Having Bridget Reagan play Kahlan was genius, but she should have worn green contacts.

    After reading the banter between you and @My Name is Rahl I may have to look into these.

    No. That's Dragonheart (one word).
    https://www.amazon.com/Dragon-Heart-15-book-series/dp/B07TXD7F8V
    "He was born anew in a world where martial arts were indistinguishable from magic. He only received a neuronet and meaningless desires from his past life. What lies ahead? He dreamed of adventure and freedom, but those dreams were taken away from him. The same way his mother, father, and sister had been taken away. They took the Kingdom, they took his own destiny. But he is willing to wage a war, against the whole world if need be, to bring everything back. Even if the army opposes him, his sword won't waver. Even if the Emperor sends the legions, his step won't falter. Even if demons and gods, heroes and enemies alike are to unite against him, he won't bend to their will. His own will is iron itself, unstoppable. His name is Hadjar and he heeds the call of the dragon heart within him."

    The first book alone is worth it, even if you don’t read any others!

    Oh wow yes books! Got a Kindle a year ago on my birthday and my co workers told me about the Libby app which lets you borrow books from the public library so that's been such an amazing resource!

    A few of my favorites so far:
    A Time to Kill, A Time for Mercy, American Dirt, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, Project Hail Mary, The President's Daughter, The Quiet Girl, State of Terror, Verity, The Stranger in the Lifeboat

    67% through Dragon Heart book 14. More of the same tale of Hadjar, who always finds himself in the middle of a scheme.
