Publisher's Summary

Tormented her entire life by inhuman voices, Jennsen seeks to end her intolerable agony. She at last discovers a way to silence the voices. For everyone else, the torment is about to begin.

Richard Rahl and his wife, Kahlan, have been reunited after their long separation, but with winter descending and the paralyzing dread of an army of annihilation occupying their homeland, they must venture deep into a strange and desolate land. Their quest turns to terror when they find themselves the helpless prey of a tireless hunter.

Exploited by those intent on domination, Jennsen finds herself drawn into the center of a violent struggle for conquest and revenge. Worse yet, she finds her will seized by dark forces more abhorrent than anything she ever envisioned. Only then does she come to realize that the voices were real.

Staggered by loss and increasingly isolated, Richard and Kahlan desperately struggle to survive. But if they are to live, they must stop the relentless, unearthly threat that comes out of the darkest night of the human soul. To do so, Richard will be called upon to face the demons stalking among the Pillars of Creation.

Epic edge: listen to more in the Sword of Truth series.

    "I forgive you Terry"

    I forgive you for turning your books into a Randian paradise, I Love Ayn, but you go kinda far. However, for not making me deal with the heartache of losing Betty, you are forgiven!

    "Worse book in the series"

    I kept wondering if I downloaded the correct book. Where was Richard, where was Kahlan? To devote a whole book to a minor character in future books was just terrible. Like most of the middle to last books in the series, it is a filler book designed to lengthen the life of the series. Only intent is to pad the authors bank account. It adds nothing to the overall plot of the series. Skip this book. It is the worse one in the series. You only need to know Richard has a half sister through Darken Rahl. She is intent on killing Richard because of the mistaken belief Richard killed her mother. She is a pillar of creation- people who magic cannot touch. These people are used by the emperor to take the Wizards Keep and capture Jed

    "A wasted credit"

    I agree with many of the other reviewers. I feel insulted by this book. Jensen is an immature, idiotic character who takes too long undertand the simpliest things. It is as if Terry Goodkind wanted a whole novel to spout her philosphy over and over. Since the reader knows that Jensen is fooled, the agony is sitting through hours of tedium. Love the rest of the books so far.

    "The worst yet"

    The first 3 books were fine, but the series has steadily deteriorated after Blood of the Fold. I thought it couldn't get any worse after Soul of the Fire...how wrong I was. There is so much dross in this book that I found myself skipping chapter after chapter after chapter until I got to about the last 5 hours, at which point the story became at least a bit bearable. The other reviewer was right - this book could have been a few chapters long and wouldn't have lost any of its essence at all. Now I have some very serious doubt about purchasing the remaining books in the series. If the trend continues to hold true, I might be better off just reading synopses of the remaining books.

    Story
    "Story is good. Bond is not."

    The story was what I had come to expect. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Jim Bond , on the other hand , is a terrible narrator in my opinion. The man has no idea when and where to use pauses when he reads. When two characters speak after each other it should not be read as if you are reading one sentence.

    Jim Bond narrating: Richardaskedwhybecauseshesaidtohim.

    "F####, Jim Bond Again "

    I can't believe they hired this crap reader again. He was horrible before and is only slightly better here. Crap, I'm so disappointed.

    "amazing as usual"

    I love this whole series and although the main characters are infuriating at times in this book . It gives you a full perspective of Goodkinds world and a chance to understand the enemies and see and feel the justice that is thurst upon them by Richard. well deserved justice. It is amazing. Just like the rest of the books. don't be deterred by the other reviews. Goodkind never writes without a reason. AMAZING. AS ALWAYS

    Story
    "story is good, narrator detracts"

    Narrator has many, monotonous parts. Occasional well read parts followed by parts that seem as if it was difficult for the Narrator to read/ follow through. Either that or the Narrator is extremely effective at bringing to life 'Oba' and couldn't prevent him from bleeding into the other characters.

    The rough parts far outweigh the smooth ones - followed through just to go on with the series.

    Story
    "2 out of 60 chapters"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The only reason I did not delete this book out of my downloaded library is the same reason I would give as a recommendation: Only listen to this book if you want to see the series through to the end. There were entire chunks of the story that could be summarized in one or two sentences. The whole story involves alternate characters from Richard and Kahlan discovering these two sentences of information. I feel sorry for my OCD friends out there that can't stop until its finished.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Skipped this book in the series


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

    The original narrator of the first book "The Sword of Truth"; pretty much any other narrator that records audio books (with the exception of any narrators that do not know how to pronounce "Kahlan")


    Do you think The Pillars of Creation needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No...I prologue could sum it up easily


    Any additional comments?

    Even though I am not OCD, I WILL finish this series. It's my free will...
