    "'You knew they were there, didn't you?' Kahlan asked in a hushed tone as she leaned closer. Against the darkening sky, she could just make out the shapes of three black-tipped races taking to wing, beginning their nightly hunt. That was why he'd stopped. That was what he'd been watching as the rest of them waited in uneasy silence."

    Overall

    I've been a fan of this series, but the last two books 7 and 8, are very weak. I'm about 80% through this book, and have found it to be very disappointing. My main issue, is the same issue mention by other commentors - too much talk (preaching). For me the main issue is that Goodkind just repeats the same philosophical statements over and over and over and over ... As an example, when Goodkind mentions the 'Order', you can expect a paragraph or two follow-up regarding their misguided philosophies. Of course, the problem with this is that the Order is mentioned quite a bit, so we continually hear the same thing over and over and over. He does this with a multiple of other characters and philosophies as well, continually repeating the same statements, the 'pristinely ungifted' are just another example of this, continually reminding us what they are. It's as if Goodkind has forgotten what's already been stated ... numerous times over.

    Additionally, with all the philosophical talk, it leaves very little room for action, which there is surprisingly little, which makes the book somewhat boring.

    I will finish the book, because I've previously enjoyed the series, but I may have take a break from Goodkind once I finish this book, especially if the ending is more of the same.
