This book is a great addition to the series. The only reason I rated the story down a bit is because Mr. Goodkind slipped back into some of the habits that detracted from the story. For example, the explanations and re-iterations of how things are done magically are a bit involved. Specifically conversations between Richard and Samantha tend to get a little long winded and re-iterate things over and over again. The Omen machine and The legend of Magda Searus got away from these drawn out scenes, which is one of the great parts about the books.
The story is amazing as always, just could have been edited down in parts. It felt like the first quarter of the book was drug out, then the action began and it totally became worth it.
Absolutely. If you like any of the birth/rebirth of magic stories, this is the book for you. Amazing, exciting ending will leave you wanting more. My only complaint is the wait between books. Hopefully this time it will be shorter now that he is done with the Wheel of Time.
This book is a nerdgasm of 80's pop culture references and gaming. It will stand alone for Scifi people who aren't really gamers, but you won't enjoy it as much.
I like the story after I got into it, but I had a hard time giving it a chance. I didn't like the way this story was more a branch off the story line started in the MHI series. I felt it messed with the formula of the first two. After I got over that, though it was a good book.
Absolutely, I think this is one of the best stories I have read. If you are looking for incredibly deep and twisting plots, this isn't the story for you, but if you like good characters, witty dialogue, and sticking it to the man, this is your story.
The characters Mr. Hearne have in this story are unique and refreshing.
Oberon. Read the book and he'll be your favorite, too
The voice of Oberon and the tone of Atticus are spot on.
The last line.
Both educational and fun, this story is pleasent to listen to and very addicting. Great to listen to in snippets.
