Faith of the Fallen is an amazing and incredible story of how the spirit of love and freedom can triumph over the evil of tyranny. As the Wizard's Sixth Rule says "The only sovereign you can allow to rule you is reason". John Kenneth delivers a great performance of, I believe probably one of the most emotionally captivating stories in The Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind. This story will have you yearning to set your spirit free.

The hidden political agenda. I can see how a lemming would not like this book and wonder if that is why so many people have rated it low. The book is mainly about a corrupt leader trying to take over the word. It talks about giving all to a good cause, although the cause is truly for enslavement!
This book is as if the author tried to have a debate between Ayn Rand and Karl Marx in story form. While it does have its high points it drags too much in the social and emotion struggles of the characters
if we don't see parallels in this Country to the story in this volume. we are blind. I'm sad that you have to go six volumes deep to hear the truth about Progressivism..... Socialism.... Communism.... to have it laid out plainly in a form that is interesting and keeps your attention. as our Country sinks in to Progressive Marxism I hope we understand the message in Faith of the Fallen. that Freedom , Liberty or Slavery are choices we each make in how we live our lives.
This is my favorite book yet! The feeling of confidence and hope from the two main characters in situations of bleak depression is inspiring. And the sense of one dim light in a world reveling in it's hopelessness and resignation to thrive into fire is amazing to see. I can't wait to see what is in store for the future.
I half-expected Richard Cypher to start ranting "Tomatoes are vegetables! Tomatoes are vegetables!" Terry Goodkind is apparently the right wing counter to JRR Tolkien. Unlike Tolkien, Goodkind is eager to force-feed allegory. Goodkind beats the reader numb with a most twisted and ironic tale designed to champion the "taxes are slavery to the poor" philosophy. There is a difference between socialism and communism. Tomatoes are not vegetables (except in US Supreme court rulings) and neither is ketchup. I am done with this series.
This book remains my favorite of the series. I have enjoyed it through several re-reads. So far, my favorite narrator is Buck Schirner, and would have enjoyed it performed by him. This is a great time in this Saga!
