Soul of the Fire: Sword of Truth, Book 5 | [Terry Goodkind]

Soul of the Fire: Sword of Truth, Book 5

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.

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.

    "Too much babble"

    Did the publisher have a word quota or something? The story is spoiled by all the "describing of things." There were several instances where the words went on and on, incessantly describing nonessential blah. The story was forgotten many times before finally moving forward. Very disappointing.

    "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.

    "Well, very good except the ending."

    Definitely the least satisfying ending of the series so far. It's almost like he got tired and just ended it. odd......

    "Gets good at the end"

    Buck Schirner returns -- gag! He's no Sam Tsoutsouvas, but very few are. The Anderith portions are slow in the beginning, but the ending is where the money is. Of the first five books in this series, only Blood of the Fold (another Buck Schirner title) is worse.

    "It was just so slow...."

    Seriously sometimes I felt like it would never end. I am hoping things pick up in the next book.

    "Good job narrator!"

    Best narrator so far. If I were to critique something it would be that emotions seem to be a little bland. Even when people are yelling he narrates it in an almost casual tone.

    "Shizam!"
    What did you love best about Soul of the Fire?

    Finding out who the Raven was and why it was acting ... well not birdlike. tickled me to death.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Author does a fantastic job with all characters its hard to pick one. But Richard or maybe Zed . i cant wait to see what zed is going to say, however you never know how Richard will amaze you.


    Have you listened to any of Buck Schirner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No i have not.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, When and how richard got The Sword Of Truth back and how . I nearly wept. and Laughed at the same time


    Any additional comments?

    Perfection

    "Eh kind of boring"

    The voice actor did a decent job, but from coming off of Temple Of The Winds this book was boring. It didn't really start getting good u Tim chapter 56 half way through the book. lol. I'm hoping the next one is better.
