Publisher's Summary

Terry Goodkind returns to the epic Sword of Truth saga in a tale of sweeping fantasy adventure bound to enthrall his growing legion of fans. In Temple of the Winds, the New York Times best selling fourth novel in the series, the Seeker of Truth Richard Rahl and Mother Confessor Kahlan Amnell risked their lives and souls to free the land of D'Hara from the scourge of a magical plague. But in doing so they accidentally unleashed the Chimes, a magic whose threat will reach far beyond D'Hara.

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.

Epic edge: listen to more in the Sword of Truth series.

    "Ah......this book is soooooo boring"

    Most of this book is minus the main characters and those parts are sooo boring and tend to repeat. i found my mind drifting during those parts. I recommend skipping those parts. This book is just ok. Not his best - just ok.

    Story
    "In the end The Seeker of Truth does it again!!!"
    Would you listen to Soul of the Fire again? Why?

    Yes, I would skip the middle though!!!


    What other book might you compare Soul of the Fire to and why?

    It stands alone.


    What does Buck Schirner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    You can feel the hurt in Richard at times.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Te Vote!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't know where they were going with the whole minster of defense story but it came out in the end. Everything comes out in the end and the last part is awesome,I was on the edge of my seat when Kahlan was done for and Richard was their but not their for her! I just wanted to say its Kalhan. In all the other you could séance her presence what's is going on!!! So I'm starting the 6th book!!

    "At least this guy doesn't call her Collin"

    Engaging story. Though both the book and audio book were pretty damn interesting. Good job.

    Story
    "Quality of writing drops precipitously"

    I enjoyed the previous entries in the series as fun popcorn fantasy. However, with Soul of the Fire the writing becomes unbearable! Characters are forced to do and say things that make little to no sense for who they are simply to carry along the plot. New characters are introduced but feel ultimately like a waste of time and chapter to "just get through." The plot itself is relatively basic but takes a very long time to actually happen. The book is based on dealing with the issue that came up at the end of the last one (the Chimes) and doesn't resolve much of anything in its hamfisted ending. This book very much feels like the middle filler episode of a bad B quality television show.

    "Yay names!"

    At least all the names were said the same as they were in the first book. This narrator is good as the voice of Richard but I do wish they hadnt changed narrators so much throughout the whole series.

    "I'm biased, but it's good."

    Much better than the last book. The story takes less time to build compelling and interesting plotlines.

    "great world building but over used themes"

    the world built by the author is fantastic and rich but the story repeatedly uses the same tired literary themes and plotlines. nothing unique sadly but still fun to read
