I really like Terry's books but the climax and finish of this one seemed rushed compared to his past novels. Without ruining the story the book ended similar to the ending of the first Hobbit movie, basically on a cliff hangar that seemed like it had been rushed to.
This series is truly one of the best fantasy series ever conceived. The themes are very strong. The story has depth and meaning. The world is fairly unique. The action is riveting.
I spent three-quarters of the book wishing Goodkind had let these characters rest in peace, but by the end, I was glad to see the adventure continue.
I have read all of the sword of truth series up and to this point. I have to admit I read the first confessor before I started the rest of the story. I feel it have a stonger premiseto the story with out giving it away. If you have followed the series thus far then you will like this book. The richard and kahlen series continues and like truth it self, just when you think you know the truth, it changes and you left with what remains. I love the constant question of what is true and how different beliefs affect different actions in all of us. I think the atory acurately dipicts the struggle for truth, for belief, for sanity. It reminds me of the assassins rule, nothing is true and everything is permitted. great book.
did not like it , what is up with all the moralistic preaching terry goodkind its out of control. The older books not to bad , law of nines pretty good and different but the more I read these new ones the more dissatisfied I am . I hope I can trade the other one I havnt started and most likely never will.
The story was too slow / much less "dont want to pout it down" than his last book in this series. I almost stopped several times but kept hoping based upon the storyline.
The omen machine was not a great book. I love the series, but it is getting a bitt used up. Im going to listen too the rest of the series, and hope the action pick's up again. As we say in Norway " walks too long around the porridge without getting too the point"
