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.

Skip this one

Struggle to finish. Plot was unfulfilling. It seemed like it was a filler. Hopefully Faith of the Fallen will be better. I I love this series. No series is perfect.

not his best book, but still a fun ride

Dramatic, but not as interesting as others in the series. I still enjoyed the read. The part with the raven was pretty cool

the last few hours are so are moveing

This story sets up the next. but inbetween is deep diplomacy, apithetic monsters, destructive consequences, and moments so moveing it has brought me to tears. This is my second read through of the series and I don't think this is the best one. In my opinion the one I'm about to start, the next book, is the best. So if you have gotten this far it realy only gets beter and better.

Enjoyable, needs better resolution and denouement

Terry Goodkind is a talented writer. Books 1 through 3 were captivating and fun if you enjoy the Fantasy genre. However by book 5 the ends are starting to become predictable. Hoping book 6 will impress more.

Best narrator yet!

Please bring back Buck Schirner. His approach to narration should be brought to all the books he hasn't done in this series.
