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.

"Goodkind's ingenious world building will keep readers captivated." (Publishers Weekly)
"Buck Schirner takes the massive cast list in stride, switching from character to character, nobleman to native, and male to female with subtle and effective grace." (AudioFile)
Earlier this year I watched the TV show "The Seeker" I noticed that the show credited "The Sword of Truth" book series by Terry Goodkind. I wanted to see how close the show held to the book. The books are far better.
The "Soul of The Fire" starts with Richard and Kahlan finally getting married. However, to save Richard's life, Kahlan releases the "Chimes" which, among other things, takes magic away.
I think that Zed's lying to Richard wasn't very creative. There were parts of the story that didn't seem to develop; however, I would have loved to have learned more. For example: What was Cara doing for 1/2 the story? Where is Addi? And what were the "Chimes" and how did the wizard Anders do to control them?
Oh-well, perhaps these are answered in future books.
I agree with Michaels review that this book is not that good. Mr Goodkind must have needed to make a deadline and threw together an unimaginative blotch of words together. I have heard the 6th book in this series is better. I certainly hope so or it will be the last book in this series I will read.
I'm afraid Goodkind might have jumped the shark with this one. The first few were great. The fourth, good. This one was terrible. I'll try the next one. Hopefully, it'll get better again.

The Sword of Truth series starts a fantastic adventure, with creative concepts and real world application. As the Series progresses, the amount of time devoted to repeat character description and seemingly endless character to character discussions, tends to make you want to bury the book. The first three books are fun and enjoyable. Book 4 starts the downward spiral to questioning thoughts and ill contorted facial expressions. I forced myself through book 5 and and dropped the series after chapter 12 in book 6. This series is noted in the fantasy genera, but tends to dive deep into drama. Progression of the series slowly gives me a feeling as though I am on jury duty- lots of description, several people angry, uncertainty if an outcome is even desired, and tired eyes.
I'm sorry, but this is one of the most boring and uninteresting stories I have ever suffered through. The book just seemed to drone on and on about nothing at all and the end was crammed into the last half of the last disc. The entire middle section of the story seemed like filler and background and never led to any kind of satisfying ending. I would not recommend this book at all.
