    Pericles "Perry" Christo is a P.I. with a past. A one-time NYPD homicide cop, Perry has been struggling since he lost his badge, and his marriage, in a notorious corruption scandal. So when wealthy Upper East Side matron Julia Drusilla calls him one cold February night, he jumps at the chance to work what seems to be a straightforward (and lucrative) case. Julia needs Perry to track down the whereabouts of her beautiful yet aimless daughter, Angelina, who is about to become a very wealthy young heiress.

    Story

    This is a great story but the performance of Christopher Evan Welch could have been better. It is a story about a dying rich woman who hires the disgraced ex-detective Perry to find her missing daughter before it is too late. Not all is as it seems though and soon Perry is caught in a webs of deceit, family secrets and murder. The proceeds of this book go to a great cause in Safe Horizons, an organisation dedicated to helping families and victims of crime.

    The bloodthirsty Jit is dead, and against all odds Richard and Kahlan have survived. But a new menace has attacked them in the Dark Lands. Infected with the essence of death itself, robbed of his power as a war wizard, Richard must race against time to uncover and stop the infernal conspiracy assembling itself behind the wall far to the north. His friends and allies are already captives of this fell combination, and Kahlan, also touched by death's power, will die completely if Richard fails. Bereft of magic, Richard has only his sword, his wits, his capacity for insight - and an extraordinary companion, the young Samantha, a healer just coming into her powers.

    Story

    The Third Kingdom is a brilliant sequel to The Omen Machine by Terry Goodkind. Sam Tsoutsouvas gives his usual great performance that makes it an enjoyable listen and even more enjoyable read. Richard and Kahlan are touched by death after escaping the Hedge Maid Jit. Richard discovers he must end prophecy, and Nicci, Zed and Cara have been captured by Hannis Arc. All this and more makes The Third Kingdom a spine chilling sequel to The Omen Machine.

    An accident leads to the discovery of a mysterious machine that has rested hidden deep underground for countless millennia. The machine awakens to begin issuing a series of increasingly alarming, if minor, omens. The omens turn out to be astonishingly accurate, and ever more ominous. As Zedd tries to figure out how to destroy the sinister device, the machine issues a cataclysmic omen involving Richard and Kahlan, foretelling an impending event beyond anyone’s ability to stop. As catastrophe approaches, the machine then reveals that it is within its power to withdraw the omen....

    Story

    The leaders of the Midlands gathered in the People's Palace wish for prophecy to be heeded and wish that Richard and Kahlan would allow prophecy to lead them as well. Meanwhile Hannis Arc the leader of the remote Faijin Provence in D'Hara is plotting revenge against the House of Rahl with the aid of a Hedge Witch named Jitt. Richard discovers The Omen Machine after the sky falls in. Is the omen machine evil or just been exploited by evil people. Another great performance by Sam Tsoutsouvas and while The Omen Machine by Terry Goodkind is not as good as The Sword of Truth books it is still an enjoyable and fantastic read.

    Descending into darkness, about to be overwhelmed by evil, those people still free are powerless to stop the coming dawn of a savage new world, while Richard faces the guilt of knowing that he must let it happen. Alone, he must bear the weight of a sin he dare not confess to the one person he loves...and has lost.

    Story

    Your life is your' s alone. Rise up and live it. Wizard's 11th rule is unsaid, but inferred. Confessor concludes the original Sword of Truth series in an unexpected but incredibly beautiful way. The battle for freedom from the imperial order has begun but Richard has lost his power and is a prisoner of the imperial order. Kahlan is still unknown to everyone but a few and the world of magic is dying out as a result of the Chainfire spell contaminated by the three chimes. Surrender to Jagang and the Imperial Order maybe the only way to survive. Terry Goodkind is definitely a master of fantasy and The Sword of Truth is one of the best series in any genre ever written. Sam Tsoutsouvas gives his best performance as a narrator in his reading of Confessor. The Sword of Truth is a must read series for all fans of the fantasy genre and I recommend this series to anyone who has never read fantasy before and would like to experience what they have been missing. Absolutely love the whole series.

    Story

    Wizard's tenth rule - "Wilfully turning aside from the truth is treason to one's self". In Phantom Kahlan and the Sisters of the Dark are captured by Jagang who has been manipulating the sisters all along as the deal they struck to swear loyalty with Richard Rahl to use his bond did not work as they believed it had done. The three chimes have contaminated the Chainfire spell and more then just the memory of Kahlan is been lost. Magic and everything that is touched by magic is dying. Richard is captured by a witch woman named Six and the Boxes of Orden are once again put into play. Sam Tsoutsouvas gives a brilliant narration of Phantom by Terry Goodkind the tenth and penultimate book in original 11 Sword of Truth books.

    As Richard fought to focus his mind on his need to remain conscious, the breathless voices sounded to him as if they were coming from some great, dim distance. He wasn't sure who they were. He knew that he knew them, but right then it just didn't seem to matter. He struggled to put voice to his burning concern, but he couldn't form the words, couldn't get out any more than a gasping moan.

    "A contradiction can not exist in reality. Not in part, nor in whole". This is the Wizard's Ninth Rule and is what Richard learns when a chainfire event is set off by four Sisters of the Dark and no one but he can remember Kahlan Amnell. The first of three Chainfire books that conclude the Sword of Truth series. Brillliantly narrated once again by Jim Bond this is a great listen and the beginning of the end of The Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind, and I believe one of the best fantasy series ever written.

    "'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."

    Talga Vasternich the Wizard's Eight Rule meaning Deserve Victory is what Richard learns after been poisoned by a group of pristinely ungifted people who wish for Richard to destroy the Imperial Order army that is occupying their land, in return for the antidote. What Richard and Kahlan learn is that a weapon called a slide created using dark magic and a wizard named Nicolas is controlling the army and is spying on their camp and is intent on claiming Kahlan and killing Richard for Jagang in return for the land of D'hara. If this is not enough Richard's gift is also killing him, and it is only a matter of time before either the poison or his gift will kill Richard. This is another brilliant novel in the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind and is again well narrated by Jim Bond. A great read and a great listen.

    Story

    Life is the future, not the past. This is the Wizard's Seventh rule. The Pillars of Creation introduces Richard's half-sister Jenssen and his half-brother Oba Rahl. They are holes in the world, they have absolutely no magic and magic can not touch them. They are a danger to the world of magic if left alive and the Keeper of the Underworld is speaking to them and Emperor Jagang is using them to destroy Richard and the world of magic. Great narration by Jim Bond and another masterpiece from Terry Goodkind.

    A Sister of the Dark captures Richard and takes him deep into the Old World, to the very heart of the Order, while his beloved Kahlan remains behind. Free because of Richard's sacrifice for her, but unwilling to abandon the cause of the Midlands, Kahlan violates not only prophecy but her last pledge to Richard and raises an army against the advancing horde of the Imperial Order.

    Faith of the Fallen is an amazing and incredible story of how the spirit of love and freedom can triumph over the evil of tyranny. As the Wizard's Sixth Rule says "The only sovereign you can allow to rule you is reason". John Kenneth delivers a great performance of, I believe probably one of the most emotionally captivating stories in The Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind. This story will have you yearning to set your spirit free.

    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.

    Story

    "Mind what people do, not only what they say, for deeds will betray a lie", is the lesson Richard and Kahlan learn in Soul of Fire Book 5 in The Sword of Truth series. Kahlan unwittingly released the three chimes upon the world when she saved Richards life in Temple of the Winds, and as a result magic is dying. Together they travel to Anderith which is protected by the mysterious weapon the Dominie Dirtch, to try and set things right. A great read and listen although Buck Schimer tends to become a tad monotonous, in his narration after a while. Still an enjoyable listen and another great story in the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind.
