Most of this book is minus the main characters and those parts are sooo boring and tend to repeat. i found my mind drifting during those parts. I recommend skipping those parts. This book is just ok. Not his best - just ok.
I just achieved App Master!! I never thought I would make it this far!! Thanks Audible
Yes, I would skip the middle though!!!
It stands alone.
You can feel the hurt in Richard at times.
I didn't know where they were going with the whole minster of defense story but it came out in the end. Everything comes out in the end and the last part is awesome,I was on the edge of my seat when Kahlan was done for and Richard was their but not their for her! I just wanted to say its Kalhan. In all the other you could séance her presence what's is going on!!! So I'm starting the 6th book!!
This story sets up the next. but inbetween is deep diplomacy, apithetic monsters, destructive consequences, and moments so moveing it has brought me to tears. This is my second read through of the series and I don't think this is the best one. In my opinion the one I'm about to start, the next book, is the best. So if you have gotten this far it realy only gets beter and better.
Terry Goodkind is a talented writer. Books 1 through 3 were captivating and fun if you enjoy the Fantasy genre. However by book 5 the ends are starting to become predictable. Hoping book 6 will impress more.
