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.

The only bad thing I could say is that it seemed to be cut in a couple places. And that the narrator is a " hhhwhat " "hhhwhere" guy lol. If you can handle that you'll like this book! Worth a listen for sure!
Loved the book so much I couldn't stop listening. It has great plot and story for any who like a good fantasy book. The narrator is alright but nothing special. He doesn't make the book any worse but doesn't add as much as there could have been to the performance.
Intense, enthralling, and captivating.
The story itself is absolutely wonderful, the detail riveting and exciting!
Anyone else. WHAT an awful narrator! His characters have hardly any distinction, and his pronunciation of names made my head hurt. This is a great book, but had I not read the series before hearing this audiobook with this narrator, I would have trashed it. Just awful.
"The Sword of Truth- NOT affiliated with Jim Bond in any way."
I love this series and will listen to it despite the narrator. I'm glad that, after reading other reviews, I know that I am not the only one who was disappointed with Jim Bond.
awesome book. but in the beginning the narrator goes from saying kah-len to kay-len. and a few differences in the tone of zedd. but overall you get used to the way he reads.
I seldom leave ratings but ... This is the worst narrative I have yet to experience in my 4 years membership with Audible. The narration is mostly flat, without motion. At times mechanical. When characters change the voices are just strange.
Richard of course is my most favorite character. Although, he is quite foolish at times. The television series ruined this series of books. I have found weekly television serial a chopped and minced license of a TV director. I am glad I've found time to finally to experience the full series and delve in the full story as written by Terry Goodkind.
Yes, absolutely. This book needs a new reading.
For you members PLEASE a new narrator.
