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.

    "filler book"

    this was in my opinion a filler book. nothing is resolved or learned. It is a predictable book. Richard doesn't even use the sword the whole book. this just wasn't my favorite. narrators voice is nice except when it comes to imagining women's voices he sometimes squeaks.

    "A good narrator can't fix a bad book"

    Buck Schirner is a good narrator especially when compared to Jim Bond however even a the best narrator can't turn a bad book into a good one. When writing it is sometimes necessary to have a character with few to no redeeming qualities, characters like that can be very difficult to write. Unfortunately Mr. Goodkind seems to be extraordinarily good at writing characters with no redeeming qualities as they comprise about 70% of all the characters in this book.

    "What a great story"

    this book has great ups and downs. Could not stop listening. I love every step of the way. Incredible and pleasing to the ears. wish I could just flow from one to the next, from beginning to end.

    "A great read"

    First of all Buck Schirner did a fantastic job reading this. His female voices leave a little to be desired but to be fair he has a very deep voice so I am going to forgive him on that. Goodkind spends a long time on characters you don't actually care about, but they are an essential part of the story so stick through it. I wish there was one solid consistent reader across this series, but Buck did a fantastic job and learned how to pronounce the names!!!
