Publisher's Summary

Shroud of Eternity picks up where Terry Goodkind's New York Times bestseller Death's Mistress left off, promising a thrilling brew of bloodshed, sex, deception, and sorcery.

The formidable sorceress Nicci and her companions - the newly powerless Nathan and the youthful Bannon - set out on another quest after driving ruthless Norukai slavers out of Renda Bay. Their mission: restore Nathan's magic and, for Nicci, save the world.

Guided by the witch-woman Red's mysterious prophecy, the trio makes their way south of Kol Adair towards a wondrous city shrouded behind time, Ildakar. But the grotesque omens on their path to Nathan's salvation - severed Norukai heads on pikes, a genetically modified monster, and a petrified army of half a million - are just a taste of the unimaginable horrors that await within the Shroud of Eternity.

It's even better than the last one!

This book gets better and better as it goes. There's plenty of action and much more magic than in his other books. The deviant nature of evil is explored in shocking ways that I never would have expected--something Goodkind always excels at. I enjoyed this book more than the first Nicci book, but I can't figure out how to explain why, without major spoilers. The ending is exciting and satisfying, while still leaving me hooked, craving the next book in that delicious way that only a great series can. I loved it!

Christina Traister sucks

She makes the story sound dry and hard to follow. Bring back Sam Tsouchavas for all seeker books

meh

not better or worse than the previous. I don't happen to be a big fan of the narrator. I just never imagined Nicci's voice that school-girl-ish. anyways. more the same of what to expect from Mr. Goodkind. just seems like he hasn't been able to captured the essence of the first S.O.T epic saga. I will still probably give the next one a listen though.

another excellent Story by Terry Goodkind

I absolutely love the new Chronicles of death's mistress and her adventures with Nathan and Bannon! it's a true spin off with tons of references and I love that burnout and her sisters are becoming part of the story as well.

Great Series but Lackluster Narrator

I love the series and had a hard time putting this one down. I have the ebook and audible narration. With this narrator I find myself sticking more with the ebook than the audio. Her voice is very flat, except for when she ends a sentence with an inflection like a teenager. You know, when every sentence sounds like it ends with a question mark. It jars me right out of the story. I hope they go with someone else for the next installment.
