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!!

    "not his best book, but still a fun ride"

    Dramatic, but not as interesting as others in the series. I still enjoyed the read. The part with the raven was pretty cool

    Story
    "the last few hours are so are moveing"

    This story sets up the next. but inbetween is deep diplomacy, apithetic monsters, destructive consequences, and moments so moveing it has brought me to tears. This is my second read through of the series and I don't think this is the best one. In my opinion the one I'm about to start, the next book, is the best. So if you have gotten this far it realy only gets beter and better.

    Story
    "Enjoyable, needs better resolution and denouement"

    Terry Goodkind is a talented writer. Books 1 through 3 were captivating and fun if you enjoy the Fantasy genre. However by book 5 the ends are starting to become predictable. Hoping book 6 will impress more.

    "Best narrator yet!"

    Please bring back Buck Schirner. His approach to narration should be brought to all the books he hasn't done in this series.

    "Great book okay narrator"

    The narrator saying, Du Chaillu's name as he did, was a bit unnerving, but overall okay performance.

    "so slow"

    lots of unnecessary character building for almost no reason in the plot. if you're following the series you have to read it but it was borderline painful.
