Publisher's Summary

In Wizard's First Rule, Richard Cypher's world was turned upside down. Once a simple woods guide, Richard was forced to become the Seeker of Truth, to save the world from the vile dominance of Darken Rahl, the most viciously savage and powerful wizard the world had ever seen.

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.

    "Enjoyable entry in the series"

    I enjoyed this story, outside of a bits that ran a little long. The narrator was a little robotic, but that could be just compared to others.

    "Great book!"

    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!

    "Great book. First book's narrator was better."

    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.

    "Good story, but changing the actor through me."

    I wish they kept the performer from the first book, but once I got use to him it was really good.

    Story
    "Great book and series! AW-FUL narration!!"
    If you could sum up Stone of Tears in three words, what would they be?

    Intense, enthralling, and captivating.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story itself is absolutely wonderful, the detail riveting and exciting!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jim Bond?

    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.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "The Sword of Truth- NOT affiliated with Jim Bond in any way."


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "good book gradually better narrator"

    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.

    "GREAT BOOK! Gawd Awful Narrator :-("
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jim Bond?

    Sam Tsoutsouvas


    Do you think Stone of Tears needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes, absolutely. This book needs a new reading.


    Any additional comments?

    For you members PLEASE a new narrator.
