I almost didn't download this after the terrible reviews but I did because I want to finish the series. I actually liked the story WAY better than the last one. Yes, Richard does go off a lot on the whole freedom at a price thing BUT he is dealing with people that are used to being enslaved so it takes a little more to convince them to fight for it. If you like the series this is more on line with it than the last book so I wouldn't skip it.
I just achieved App Scholar!! 1000 hours in 1 yr 7 mo and 10 days!!! I never thought I would make it this far!! Thanks Audible
The reviews were bad on the 8th book,you have to stay the course.So far this is a great fantasy series every book wont be full of action.It had moments when the book was slow but over all a good book.The end was great and explained a lot.I cant wait to get to the next book,It starts the next trilogy of the sword of truth..So dont listen to all the bad reviews and finish the series...
It is already clear the author's ideas on life. Richard repeating it time and time again is a waste of time.
The characters fall into traps, come close to death and require efforts that go beyond the impossible to be "saved" in different ways. In each book each of the main characters take their turn at first being a victim then surviving insurmountable odds. It is all wonderfully entertaining! The narrator could do a bit better putting some drama into the characters. It is a nice to hear the same reader throughout the series. A good listen and incredibly fun!
Again, This narrator is the worst. It's like listening to a toddler's bed time story. Additionally, I'm really getting tired of Richard and Khalin/Kallin. Thier love story is begining to make me roll my eyes. It doesn't add to the story. The fighting, or strategy in this book was more fantasy than people having magic! Giving this 3 stars is Good-Kindness on my part. If I get a great deal... I may read book 9.
