Publisher's Summary

On the day that she awoke remembering nothing but her name, Kahlan Amnell became the most dangerous woman alive. For everyone else, that was the day when the world began to end.

As her husband, Richard, desperately searches for his beloved, whom only he remembers, he knows that if she doesn't soon discover who she really is, she will unwittingly become the instrument that will unleash annihilation. But Kahlan learns that if she ever were to unlock the truth of her lost identity, then evil itself would finally possess her, body and soul.

If she is to survive in a murky world of deception and betrayal, where life is not only cheap but fleeting, Kahlan must find out why she is such a central figure in the war-torn world swirling around her. What she uncovers are secrets darker than she could ever have imagined.

Epic edge: listen to more in the Chainfire Trilogy and the swordtruth series.

    "Phantom Review"

    Finally finished reading Phantom. This book was the dullest of the series, it seemed like TG dragged it out too long, especially with Kahlan's storyline. Now off to finish the series with Confessor. Hopefully this one will be as good as the beginning of the series.

    "Good but..."

    I always get unabridged versions of my books, however, if ever there was a time for an abridged version the Chainfire Trilogy is it!!! OMG....some sections just go on and on! Don't get me wrong I love these books but why 3 books were needed for the Chainfire piece, I have no idea!! Whew...I'm glad I'm finally done with them!!!

    "Not a bad story, but way too long and repetitive"

    What can I say, I really should have read the other reviews and taken a bit more notice. I read the preceding books in the series when they were first released, and I must say and advantage to printed books is that you can skip the bits that are repetitive and dull. I think that the three final books in this series could easily have been compressed into a single story.

    Although I have memories of the early books being very good, the final "trilogy" set have been something of a disappointment. The characters are dreadfully one-dimensional, and Richard himself has become unbelievable, overly righteous and at times downright dull. And was it just me, or were all the "bad" characters fat and/or ugly brutes, and the "good" characters slim and attractive intellectuals? Please!

    I also found the switch in narrators disconcerting - the narrator who did the first book was better, but by then I was sucked into the "but I just need to see how it ends" trap.

    "Thrilling second book in the chainfire trilogy"
    Would you listen to Phantom again? Why?

    As it is a part of a trilogy inside the The Sword of Truth series it would be perfect to listen to again when you revisit the series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The entire backdrop of this trilogy is very exciting, there is alot of revisiting of characters from previous books. It keeps true to the main story line, the quest for unity, peace and freedom. Also the ever evolving journy of Richard Rahl. This book especially deals with alot of the questions you have from book one, but it still keeps you on the edge of your seat. You just want to hurry up and finish it so you can start on book three and the conclusion to this series.


    Did Sam Tsoutsouvas do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    He does not have the same broad specter of dialects and tones to differentiate different characters. Previous narrators have done a better job. But the main problem of a series this long is that it is near to impossible to keep the same narrator for the entire series. I have heard Zed's voice in alot of different ways so far, and you can not really get a feel for a character just based on its voice in The Sword of Truth Series. That being said I must say I enjoy Sam's deep voice, it is very pleasant and the small changes he does for the different characters is enough to know the difference, I feel now in book 3 that I can start to distinguish the difference on characters based on his twist on them.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I could I would! I sneak in as much time as possible during my day to listen to books, and this one was very captivating indeed!


    Any additional comments?

    If I could chose a narrator I would go for Nick Poedehl, his performance of Kingkiller Chronicles day 1 is SUPERB!

    "better"

    I was some what dissappointed with Chainfire, part 1, but this book was a lot better. My only wish is that the narrator would stay the same. I really dont care who, although Jim Bond would be preference, but when you are use to one person, a change in the characters voices can throw you off.

    "More Sam!"

    Mr Sam Tsoursouvas is by far my the best narrator in this whole series. You should just take everyone else's recordings, throw them away, and rerecord them with Mr Sam! Oh, and the books are great, thank you Terry Goodkind. You've kept my enthralled since book one!

    "Another Goodkind marvel"

    This is book 10 in an 11 book series. I LOVED IT!! Such a rich world is created by Goodkind. At the end of the book I was so excited that I went straight on to the last one. This can be read alone but much more is gained if you read it as part of the series. The characters are so well conceived and the plot so well put together. The narrator is one of the better narrators of the series although to begin with he is a little robotic but once you get into the book you don't notice it.

    "Great listen"

    If you've read or listened to the starting books you'll know you want to read some more, personally I found the reading better than the listening, but these are still a great listen if you don't have the hours and hours to spend reading the books

    "this guy is just wrong"

    Seriously, I have listened to the entire sreies up until now but this guy has no idea, he is just taking the mick. I posted a negative review about previous readers but n ow I realise that they were quite good; the current reader is atrocious. He has no idea about tempo, nuance or AAARGHHH, he is really bad. If I didn't care about the story I would stop now. It would be good if publishers did nlot rely on " he has a good voice" and went with a narrative that conveyed the story. Disapointing, but only because of the narrative...the story, of course, is compelling.
