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.

    "Ignorance"

    2 hours left to the audio book, and I have yet to hear one line spoken from Richard or Kahlen. The thoughts and ideas of the main character for this book is understandable if you have and iq of 80. The lack of forethought or reason to the character is understandable for a bit, but as the book slowly moves forward, and I do mean SLOWLY, the ignorance and lack of intelligence is insulting to any intelligent life-form above an amoeba. If emotion was to be the reason for the willingness to be without reason, then it needed to be portrayed much better.

    Book 7, and even a nobody of their first book has more power than the most powerful wizard in 3000 years who acts more like a french revolutionary with only a sword than a wizard. I am never stop in the middle of a series... I almost didn't finish the first 3 hours of this Audiobook. Out of dying hope, I finished the book. I am sad to say, I will not be buying the next.

    "Disappointing"

    Although I've enjoyed the series so far, Goodkind's replaced his two well-loved characters with an imbecilic protaganist whose rambling, naive narration is irritating at best.

    If everything in this story wasn't repeated at least 3 times in different ways, it would be a decent book at a 3rd of the length, and probably quite enjoyable.

    The reader, Jim Bond, has a curiously unemotional, almost robotic voice, which I didn't mind during book 2 of this series, but combined with the less-than-enthralling story, I found it overall a great cure for my chronic insomnia.

    "Does this book have anything to do with Richard?"

    I am a fan of Mr. Goodkind's writing, but I am 1 hour into te second part and I have heard nothing about Richard or Kahlen, and I don't much like it. Can someone resolve this question for me?

    "Aggrivating read"

    I liked the previous books of the series so far.

    This particular one just drags on to much and has to many characters that are just to ignornt or gullible. Alot of "scenes" in the story are just to unbelieveable for me. I dont know how to say more without giving away the story.

    If your like me, you will read it anyways because it is part of the series. So, when you do read it, dont be ashamed about skipping some chapters.
    Basicly just read enough to learn about the 2 main characters and then skip on over to the last 6 hours or so.

    FYI I had no problems with the narrator, I found him easy to listen to.

    "Narrator"

    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!!!

    "Worthless tangent"

    This book should have been a couple of chapters.

    "Jim Bond's Voice is Aweful"
    Would you try another book from Terry Goodkind and/or Jim Bond?

    Terry GoodKind is Brilliant


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    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

    "Amazing Book Horrible Narrator"

    No, I'd rather take the time to read it rather than listen to that narrator again. Give us John Kenneth or Sam Tsoutsouvas

    "Enough already"
    What would have made The Pillars of Creation better?

    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.

    "A book just to make more money with a series."

    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.
