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 really do enjoy these books. the series is wonderful. I don't normally read science fiction like this but I am pleasantly surprised at the wonderful story line and writing. the performance took a little getting used to, because of how amazing Sam was in the first book. otherwise.... Wow!
Different narrator. And NOT the first books narrator. Pay for someone better. PLEASE!
Common themes are expected, try some originality in the themes. Darken Rahl meet Darth Mail, lord sith ect.. Karakarn meet the kaharn at least use different consonants for names
Over enunciation!!! Talked to us like a children's novel
I didn't mind the narrator, of course, he was a bit strange in the beginning but I like his normal narration voice.
Story was definitely worth reading!
the story line was awesome I was kept on the edge of my seat. The reader was an awesome performer I listened to the first book and the read wasn't as good bit in this one the reader was changed I liked this guy's performance better.
The story is mediocre. But the narrator gives a performance a meager shuffle beyond a text to voice application. Most of the time he has no inflection and an odd cadence. Occasionally he manages to get a spark of emotion to show, but that spark never catches, even for the entire scene. Just awful.
If I had not already read the novel a number of times I would have been turned off to further Goodkind books simply because of how horrible Jim Bond is as a narrator.
Ben Steins character in Ferris Beuller seems animated and interesting by comparison.
Mr Bond had no inflection or animation at any point in the reading. He blended all the characters into a lump of indestinguisable monotone animatrons.
Another narrator would be hard pressed to beat how awful he was in reading this book.
The story itself Is one I enjoy And have read a number of time. I highly recommend you buy the book and read it yourself.
The story is great like most of Goodkinds.
This book narration sounds very unprofessional. Like the narrators that read for free books.
I have listened to this ever sense it came out in audio. first were double sided cassette and the c d. now down loads. it is a very good series thank you. .
