Publisher's Summary

Terry Goodkind returns to the epic Sword of Truth saga in a tale of sweeping fantasy adventure bound to enthrall his growing legion of fans. In Temple of the Winds, the New York Times best selling fourth novel in the series, the Seeker of Truth Richard Rahl and Mother Confessor Kahlan Amnell risked their lives and souls to free the land of D'Hara from the scourge of a magical plague. But in doing so they accidentally unleashed the Chimes, a magic whose threat will reach far beyond D'Hara.

Now it has become terrifyingly clear that the Chimes have the potential to bring down all that Richard and Kahlan have worked to protect, and even the power of the Sword of Truth may not be enough to stem the tide of their unleashed magical force. But if the Chimes cannot be stopped, first they will ravage Richard and Kahlan, then all of D'Hara, and then the entire world.

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

Hang in there.

Form your own opinion. It starts quick enough then slows way down. Hang in there. It gets really good at the end. But this isn't the end.

The Best So Far in the Series

Not only was the performance of this reading superbly done with no awkwardness or bizarre pronunciations, but the story was riveting throughout. I never wanted to put it down. I really became very enthralled with the characters and their stories. Every one of them became real to me.

Skip this one.

The narrator was ok. His biggest problem was the character voices. When characters were talking together and there was no break in the lines with a he said she said thing it would sound like one person talking to themselves. The main issue is the story itself. Most of it was about non core characters who have no likable traits to them. This makes it very hard to go multiple chapters with nothing but them involved. There are no real repercussions to the main group of characters that can't be summed up in literally a paragraph to start off the next book. I have really enjoyed the series so far and hope this was the worst of the books.
