    Tormented her entire life by inhuman voices, Jennsen seeks to end her intolerable agony. She at last discovers a way to silence the voices. For everyone else, the torment is about to begin. Richard Rahl and his wife, Kahlan, have been reunited after their long separation, but with winter descending and the paralyzing dread of an army of annihilation occupying their homeland, they must venture deep into a strange and desolate land.

    Answers questions like why Darken Rhal killed his un-gifted offspring. A little slow to start, but the build up will not disappoint. Forget all the naysayer's reviews here. If you have enjoyed the saga so far, you will enjoy this book too. Story develops during the time frame leading up to the end of book 6, but from a parallel perspective of other characters in the Midlands that are not in Richard's circle. Introduces two other offspring of Darken Rhal, Richard's half brother and sister. They are the main characters in this story (not Richard and Kaylan). Richard and Kaylan re-enter at the end of the story. It takes the author time to build the new characters and circumstances, and then the story takes off just like all the others thus far.

    Liberty minded individuals and those who believe in the Constitution will find this near future dystopian novel to be right up their alley. Those who are looking to be more informed about the potential threats to America's financial stability will learn what to watch for and how to prepare themselves for an economic collapse. America is on the cusp of financial annihilation. Matt and Karen Bair face the challenges of Main Street during a full scale financial meltdown. Government borrowing and monetary creation have reached their limits.

    Would you try another book from Mark Goodwin and/or Kevin Pierce?

    No. The path ends here.


    What was most disappointing about Mark Goodwin’s story?

    The author preaches his political and religious views, wastes time with direct reads of long Bible passages, and uses the character dialog to self promote his Web site a podcasts.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The basic story is passable, although the prepping information is rudimentary at best. Mostly, the smug self promotion along with a condescending espousing of his political and religious views make the book wearisome.

    America faces a full-scale socioeconomic collapse in the near future. The stock market plummets, hyperinflation cripples commerce and the mounting crisis passes the tipping point. Practically overnight, the fragile chains of supply and high-technology infrastructure fall, and wholesale rioting and looting grip every major city.
