Publisher's Summary

Tormented her entire life by inhuman voices, Jennsen seeks to end her intolerable agony. She at last discovers a way to silence the voices. For everyone else, the torment is about to begin.

Richard Rahl and his wife, Kahlan, have been reunited after their long separation, but with winter descending and the paralyzing dread of an army of annihilation occupying their homeland, they must venture deep into a strange and desolate land. Their quest turns to terror when they find themselves the helpless prey of a tireless hunter.

Exploited by those intent on domination, Jennsen finds herself drawn into the center of a violent struggle for conquest and revenge. Worse yet, she finds her will seized by dark forces more abhorrent than anything she ever envisioned. Only then does she come to realize that the voices were real.

Staggered by loss and increasingly isolated, Richard and Kahlan desperately struggle to survive. But if they are to live, they must stop the relentless, unearthly threat that comes out of the darkest night of the human soul. To do so, Richard will be called upon to face the demons stalking among the Pillars of Creation.

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

    "I forgive you Terry"

    I forgive you for turning your books into a Randian paradise, I Love Ayn, but you go kinda far. However, for not making me deal with the heartache of losing Betty, you are forgiven!

    "Worse book in the series"

    I kept wondering if I downloaded the correct book. Where was Richard, where was Kahlan? To devote a whole book to a minor character in future books was just terrible. Like most of the middle to last books in the series, it is a filler book designed to lengthen the life of the series. Only intent is to pad the authors bank account. It adds nothing to the overall plot of the series. Skip this book. It is the worse one in the series. You only need to know Richard has a half sister through Darken Rahl. She is intent on killing Richard because of the mistaken belief Richard killed her mother. She is a pillar of creation- people who magic cannot touch. These people are used by the emperor to take the Wizards Keep and capture Jed

    "A wasted credit"

    I agree with many of the other reviewers. I feel insulted by this book. Jensen is an immature, idiotic character who takes too long undertand the simpliest things. It is as if Terry Goodkind wanted a whole novel to spout her philosphy over and over. Since the reader knows that Jensen is fooled, the agony is sitting through hours of tedium. Love the rest of the books so far.

    "The worst yet"

    The first 3 books were fine, but the series has steadily deteriorated after Blood of the Fold. I thought it couldn't get any worse after Soul of the Fire...how wrong I was. There is so much dross in this book that I found myself skipping chapter after chapter after chapter until I got to about the last 5 hours, at which point the story became at least a bit bearable. The other reviewer was right - this book could have been a few chapters long and wouldn't have lost any of its essence at all. Now I have some very serious doubt about purchasing the remaining books in the series. If the trend continues to hold true, I might be better off just reading synopses of the remaining books.

    "GR8"

    An exceptional Story teller/writer. I am thoroughly enjoying this series, with the exception of one of the performers.

    Story
    "Not the main crew, but done very well"

    Although it strays away from the normal Sword of Truth protagonists, The Pillars of Creation is a well woven story. It networks the main story and struggles of the Midlands, D'hara, and the old world with the coming of age tale of a young girl and boy that are integral to the future of magic in the world. The naive and innocent Jennsen and the maniacal sociopathic Oba. I won't get into a detailed description of the story, but suffice to say it's well done. If you're expecting a Richard and Kahlan adventure though, you may be somewhat disappointed. They are in it, but very briefly. If you can prep your mind for a non-Richard/Kahlan tale, it's an enjoyable read.

    Story
    "I was skeptical, but it was ok."

    I was very skeptical about this book. It tells the story of characters other than Richard and Kahlan for almost the entire book. I couldn't wait to get through it to get back to the main story. I was surprised though, that as skeptical as I was, I did enjoy it.

    Jim bond is not my favourite person for the narration of this book. I didn't like him in book 2 and I still don't like him now. I find his voice very droning and often have to rewind the book to listen to things again as his voice makes me tune out. He is OK, but definitely not my first choice!

    "Most frustrating book yet..."

    Since the reader has probably read the first 8 or something books in this series, we know what is really going on in the world. Now to have to sit through the stupidity of these new characters is frustrating and makes me want to pull my hair out. Finding out at the end some new information was a relief... I will continue the series but I dunno... This book just wasn't one of my favourites.

    "Interesting detour."

    This book barely progresses the main story and the vast majority of it you don't even hear about Richard and Kahlan, but it is still a good read
