Publisher's Summary

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.

War, monsters, and treachery plague the world, and only Richard and Kahlan can save it from an armageddon of unimaginable savagery and destruction.

Terry Goodkind, author of the brilliant fantasy bestsellers of the Sword of Truth series, has created his most masterful epic yet, a sumptuous feast of magic and excitement replete with the wonders of his unique fantasy vision.

Epic edge: listen to more in the Sword of Truth series.

Much better voice than the last one

I could listen to this man speak for days... in fact I just have, haha! The intricately well told story of Terry Goodkind once again wows the senses and brings my imagination flaring to life. His well versed words and incredible vocabulary bring about the thought that I, myself, may just be less competent than I originally thought.

The voice over was very well done, and he reason it gets 4/5 is that the actor gets tired some times and you can just hear his desire to do the voices wane as he drums on to the beat of the book. The first voice reigns supreme yet.

I cannot wait to hear my next book!!

as usual

I've always loved Terry Goodkind's work. But the fight scene in this 3rd book is my FAVORITE! All the scenes link together n the best ending. But we always get good stuff from Goodkind

Please reproduce with a different narrator

This great series has been marred with poor narrator choices. Unfortunately this is no exception.
