He was joined on this epic quest by his beloved Kahlan, the only survivor among the Confessors, who brought a powerful but benevolent justice to the land before Rahl's evil scourge. Aided by Zedd, the last of the wizards who opposed Rahl, they were able to cast him into the underworld, saving the world from the living hell of life under Rahl.
But the veil to the underworld has been torn, and Rahl, from beyond the veil, begins to summon a sinister power more dreadful than any he has wielded before. Horrifying creatures escape through the torn veil, wreaking havoc on the unsuspecting world above.
If Rahl isn't stopped, he will free the Keeper itself, an evil entity whose power is so vast and foul that once freed, it can never again be contained.
Epic edge: listen to more in the Sword of Truth series.

I am more of an, ask me and, i love to tell you kinda bases .
Love the book but the reader was droning and not into the book.. Not to mention it was hard to pay attention to the story, when the reader clearly had no interest. But I loved the book! Did not like the person reading it.. And he did not pronounce the names of some of the characters correctly..
The book is phenomenal. Terry's books are always time well spent. If you have read the books before, this will appeal more to you, the narration severely detracts from the immersion and suspension of disbelief.
Sword of Truth Series...enough said
Very mechanical, at times you wonder if this is a text to speech program doing the narration. He frequently pauses at strange times in the narrative. It is very distracting from the story. It is almost as though he was being interrupted while he was reading or lost his place. Worst narration that I have heard to date for any book on Audible.
It was and they ruined the story as so often happens when a book is re-written as a screenplay.
I love this series. I have read it and now listen to it while in the car. this narrator was average at best. when he was reading disctiptions of things, internal monolog, or events, his voice had passion and was a joy to hear. when he tried to create character voices and "speak" their words, it was all the same. flat, robotic, unemotional, and monotone. parts of this was hard to listen to because of it. hope to have a better narrator the next book, though it's reviews point toward worse...
The narration is painful! His characters will sometimes switch accents when they get excited and at times he talks like a computer generated voice :-( his inflection doesn't keep pace with the actual story nor where one is within a sentence. If the storyline wasn't good I would have stopped after the first chapter. Terry Goodkind is great at weaving tales, but needs help picking voice talent. Jim needs to find another form of work.
Great book! Parts of it are a little cliché, but only to stress their importance in the story line. The narrator does a wonderful job, but I find his voice on the characters to be a little monotonous and without much personality. Overall a very good book though, most definitely recommended!
Great book! Only drawback is the narrator falls short of the greatness of the first narrator. It took a while but I got used to the narration.
