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)
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.
The narrator was fantastic, great voice. I really like the Sword of Truth series. I've read all the books and have listened to all the audio. I don't care for Terry Goodkind's habit of restating information from past books. He goes overboard to say the least. I suspect he uses it for filler... With that being said the story itself is very solid and entertaining.
I enjoy reading fantasy, crime and mystery thrillers, as well as historical novels.
"Mind what people do, not only what they say, for deeds will betray a lie", is the lesson Richard and Kahlan learn in Soul of Fire Book 5 in The Sword of Truth series. Kahlan unwittingly released the three chimes upon the world when she saved Richards life in Temple of the Winds, and as a result magic is dying. Together they travel to Anderith which is protected by the mysterious weapon the Dominie Dirtch, to try and set things right. A great read and listen although Buck Schimer tends to become a tad monotonous, in his narration after a while. Still an enjoyable listen and another great story in the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind.
My audibles edition of this book refuses to sync with my Kindle version. I have to manually update each chapter progression on both my iPhone and my Kindle.
they used half the book on explaining about a country which should have had less then 30min for the story to be told -.- only got half way through the book. found it very bad. the story was extremely slow and the chimes made absolutely no sense (so they where made to combat magic in a time where EVERY mage had both types, but they doesnt remove sub magic o.O say what, then they are completely useless in the time when they was made..)..
besides that there are too many stupid decisions made which makes little sense, and almost nothing happens for the first 12hours....
will skip the last half and just go on to the next one
finally they found a decent narrator while he isn't as good as the one who did the first book he is a greatly appreciated change from the terrible narrators that did books 2,3,4. though i agree with other people this story isn't as good as the others though it still is ok.
The first half of this book has too much summarizing. Slow, almost boring.
Debating on whether this series is worth my time and money to listen to the next one.
The ending picks up but is it too little, too late?
Switching narrators is really a problem throughout this series. Although this one is ok, some are terrible. It's very annoying when they pronounce the main characters names different. It 's distracting.
Also, I am getting tired of all the rape and violence against women. Is it really inspiring?
