Great story and interesting characters. Narration could use a longer pause between character shifts to help the listener "adjust" between stories. Looking forward to the next book! (Queen?)

In a fantasy world as rich and real as our own, Richard Rahl and Kahlan Amnell stand against the ancient forces which besiege the New World - forces so terrible that when last they threatened, they could only be withstood by sealing off the Old World from whence they came. Now the barrier has been breached, and the New World is again beset by their evil power.

Hard to put down, great continuation. Looking forward to Temple in the Woods and the rest of the story. Reader was excellent and did well with keeping the characters unique. Well done TG

Gavin Guile is the Prism, the most powerful man in the world. He is high priest and emperor, a man whose power, wit, and charm are all that preserves a tenuous peace. But Prisms never last, and Guile knows exactly how long he has left to live: Five years to achieve five impossible goals. But when Guile discovers he has a son, born in a far kingdom after the war that put him in power, he must decide how much he's willing to pay to protect a secret that could tear his world apart.

Very good read! Difficult to follow in the beginning but grabs you in the end. Cannot wait to read the second book. Thank you Brent!
