We're told there's going to be a rival for Richard's affections (La Legende du Sourcier).
We left off with Richard successfully defeating Darken Rahl, but it remains to be seen whether he succeeded long-term. What? Defeating Rahl opened a rift into the underworld, which means Richard must contend with a war waged on the living (Sword of Truth).
Sounds interesting! I cannot wait to see it!
