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.

    "worse book in the lot by far...."

    you have to wait until the 54th chapter to get to the "main" characters Richard and Kahlan. and one of the two actual main characters is a delusional psychopath. the other a bimbo. but it's worth choking through for the slaughter that zed gives the order and a couple minor characters.

    "great book"

    absolutely loved it, although as the series has gone on, it seems like the main characters are in it less, and less.

    "Why oh why"

    Why oh why Terry? There is a good reason why there is so many mixed reviews on the book. For one , don't expect Richard or Khalan to come in the story till the very end. The rest is spent on Two bastard children of Darkan Rahul. Tell a story over and over three different ways. It would have been enjoyable if the main character of this book weren't so annoying. I thought soul of fire was the worst book so far. This one takes the cake. It is by far the dullest, mind numbing boring . I did complete it , I don't Ike skipping books in series in case I might miss something. The narrator did ok . He didn't bother me as much as other listeners. I did notice the robot voice they talked about. Just really disappointed the book.

    "Interesring, but off topic"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Pillars of Creation to be better than the print version?

    I have thoroughly enjoyed the series which is why I bought this book. I was very disappointed that the main plot did not continue at all in the story. I really wanted to see what happens next in the battle against the evil empire. Instead of continuing the plot that I was looking forward to, This book covers Richard Rawl's two siblings, which was rather disappointing . The worst part about this book was the narrator. He was horrible in book 2. I think he was a little bit better in this book especially as it went on, but I still had to grit my teeth just a bit to get through it. He reads like a computer generated voice, he has very little expression in his voice.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Jim bond has no expression to his voice and uses no inflections. You cannot tell who is talking when he changes characters. I had to grit my teeth and get through book 2 just because I enjoyed the story so much. I was very disappointed to see that he was narrating this book as well. I do not understand why Audible would provide such a poor quality audible book for the money that we pay! Jim Bond is a horrible narrator! I see that he is also narrating the next book also. If I had a choice I wouldn't not buy the next book just because I despise listening to this narrator but I really like the series so I will get my teeth and get through his horrible narration.

    "This book really dragged for me"

    Didn't like many of the characters in this book and found it unsatisfying. Oba's PoV is detestable, Jensen comes across as naive although like-able. White haired dude is annoying. Pacing felt slow.

    "Most boring of the lot so far"

    This is the worst in the series so far. It is about characters we don't even care about and a story that seems to have very little relevance to the overarching story.

    "Decent story horrible narrator"
    What disappointed you about The Pillars of Creation?

    There was an awful lot of talk of propaganda... so much so that it almost drowned out the story.


    What didn’t you like about Jim Bond’s performance?

    At first I had thought that the narrator was my computer's text to speech but I soon realized that it was not. Jim Bond is incredibly skilled at having little to no inflection when speaking and making all the female characters sound alike.
