    Now it has become terrifyingly clear that the Chimes have the potential to bring down all that Richard and Kahlan have worked to protect, and even the power of the Sword of Truth may not be enough to stem the tide of their unleashed magical force. But if the Chimes cannot be stopped, first they will ravage Richard and Kahlan, then all of D'Hara, and then the entire world.

    "An unfulfilling end"
    Overall

    I thought the first 2/3 of this book did a good job of developing new characters and setting the stage for the political and magical forces that Richard had to overcome. However I found that the climax to the plot and the wrap up of the fates of the characters in the conclusion was sorely lacking. I seriously thought that I had missed downloading the last section of the book. If not for the "We hope you have enjoyed our presentation..." I wouldn't have even known that book was over. Fates of some of the secondary characters are left in the air, the intent of what the primary characters plan to do after the completion of their struggle is vague at best. Richard never explains to any of his companions how he figured out the way to overcome his adversaries. The fates of some of the main antagonists get summed up by a single sentence. It is hard to express all my issues with the book without giving too much away, but if I had to sum up my feelings on this novel in a single word, it would be "Disappointing." I will probably give the 6th book a chance, but I will take a break from this series for a while to help get the sour taste out of my mouth left behind by this book.
