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.

Very entertaining, very well constructed story line that flows as easily as water down a waterfall. Loved it.
I got to the second part. I hoped it would be cleaner than the first book, "Wizard's First Rule" and it is worse. I am going to avoid Terry Goodkind's books altogether.
This narrator was not nearly as good for me as for the first book. At first I thought the book was allot cornier than than the first, and maybe less well written. This may or may not be true, but much of that impression comes from the narrator. His timing and execution is robotic and somehow childish.
I can't put this series down. Great characters you actually care about, mixed with fast paced action. Very entertaining.
Kahlan is weak and dependent upon Richard for her sanity. She cries all of the time, only invokes her magic to save him, and is fairly school-girlish. Richard is angry, stubborn, and carries knowledge far beyond what he should reasonably, since he doesn't know the people as well as Kahlan, but instructs her (and everyone else) on them nevertheless.
I like the stories, but these character traits bother me.
The story is just as good as reading the book, but the poor narration is a turnoff. I'm surprised they didn't stay with the same reader as the first book - The Wizard's First Rule.
