"Richard saw the point of a sword blade sticking out from between the man's shoulder blades. He spun back toward Richard after throwing the woman out of the opening, ready to attack. It seemed impossible, but the man looked unaffected by the blade that had impaled him through the chest.
"It was then, in the weak light from the fire pit off to the side, that Richard got his first good look at the killer.
"Three knives were buried up to their brass cross guards in the man's chest. Only the handles were showing. Richard saw, too, the broken end of a sword blade jutting out from the center of the man's chest. The point of that same blade stuck out from the man’s back.
"Richard recognized the knife handles. All three were the style carried by the men of the First File.
"He looked from those blades that should have killed the big man, up to his face. That was when he realized the true horror of the situation, and the reason for the unbearable stench of death."
Sequel to the #1 New York Times best seller The Omen Machine.

You won't stop reading, the story will build still the end and then you want more.
All your main character are back and some new ones to make it interesting.
You could stop with Confessor and be satisfied with the Series...but if you read The Omen Machine like I did, be ready for a time jumping story with repetitious dialogue that feels like he was filling space to meet the requirements of his contract.
I am in it now for new story arc but you could save yourself.
Samantha's repetitive questions were annoying. In fact I wonder if Goodkind had a shortfall of word count and had to restate phrases over and over and over again in order to have the book fall into "Novel" territory rather than Novelette.
I might recommend the book if my friends were Goodkind fans with the warning that it isn't quite as good as previous Richard and Kahalan books
I like listening to Sam. He does a great job of differentiating the characters of the books. He's awesome.
It was okay
yes and will the whole series. i love it!
nothing, maybe ra salvator a little
I have enjoyed all of Terry Goodkinds books, until this one. The constant repeated "Richard knew"s, along with the apparent need to explain every concept 2,3 even 4 times in the same bit of dialog leaves me wondering if this is even the same author of the previous books? Or did he suddenly decide he is writing to small children? Terrible book to listen to. I can't recommend this book to anyone! Unless you are desperate, and, like me, hold out some small hope that Mr. Goodkind will put a lot more effort into the next one in this series
Write for an adult audience, way less "Richard knew"s stop the explications! A concept is clear after the first time!
I realize the first part needs to set up the story, but it felt like the story was just droning on and on about the same things. Halfway through its like Richard woke up and started acting like how he used to and the story overall got a little more interesting.
I like the plot twists in this book. I did not like the death of one of my favorite characters.
Cara has always been one of my favorite characters because of the beauty that her life turned into after all the horror she had faced.
No. The tv series made out of the prior book series with the same characters was bunk. It changed too much of the storyline to keep interest. To make a tv series featuring the same characters would not work. In a movie, too much ground work would have to be laid. They would have to start at the beginning and make movies out of the entire Sword of Truth series first.
If I would have originally started listening to books written by Terry Goodkind with Sam Tsoutsouvas narrating, I would never have fallen in love with them in the same way. Nick Sullivan should take over all future Terry Goodkind novels. Sam is too boring.
I have listened to Nick Sullivan on previous books in this series, and Sam Tsoutsouvas, loses the uniqueness of the character's, with his mono tone reading.
Have it read by Nick Sullivan
yes of course
read the next book in the series
After the Sword of Truth series, this series seems a little slow and lacks depth. I am hoping that will change
He is average
Yes, but I am waiting for the story to get better.
Law of Nines was very good. I want more
