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 have listened to quite a few books and have come to decide that this guy is the worst narrator ever. He pauses at weird spots and inflects his voice at odd times, Its simply bizzare to listen to..... Bless Terry Goodkinds heart but, he just beats stuff to death and does not advance the story. Im ready for Richard and the gang to open up a can of woop butt!!!
Terry GoodKind is Brilliant
Jim Bonds voice is very robotic. I would recommend skipping the Jim Bond audios and reading the book or have Siri on your iPhone read it
No, I'd rather take the time to read it rather than listen to that narrator again. Give us John Kenneth or Sam Tsoutsouvas
The series started strong, but how many times can one person be caught in the same situation. There is just a little too much preaching. I get it. I know how Kalen releases her power. I know the chant of the Daharans. This book added a new feature and that was being totally lost until the end. I get it. Darken Raul had lots of little bastard kids.
This book was insulting to me. Has very little to do with the main thread of the book. Does not even really deal with Richard or Kahlynn at all. Does nothing to advance the story. Makes the worst parts of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time seem interesting and relevant. Just skip it, you don't need it to continue the series. What a joke of a book.

I'm not a writer, I feel I get a creative Idea once and a while but never can put it onto paper. This book inspired me to start. I can not believe that character Interaction that Dreadful was published. I have forced myself through the previous books in this series and would give them maybe 2 stars because they are creative, but this was to much. Instead of following the Main Characters, you dredge through the lives of characters with absolutely no substance.
Seriously I want to publish a book and make a fortune, I really think I could do it now. Here I come TOR
All I can say is thank God for the Fast Forward feature on my iPod Touch. some of the chapters are just really boring.
I really was enjoying the series. But if the next book is as bad as this one then I will be done.
The Terry Goodkind series is really a great read. I have read it in print and have been listening up to this book. Book ones narrator made the story come alive and riveted you to your earbud. This Jim Bond guy should be reading technical manuals to the deaf. He has all of the energy, inflection and drive of an 80's answering machine! I will NOT be buying any more books with this guy narrating. Sorry Jim, nothing personal, but you suck at this job.
