Publisher's Summary

"Richard saw the point of a sword blade sticking out from between the man's shoulder blades. He spun back toward Richard after throwing the woman out of the opening, ready to attack. It seemed impossible, but the man looked unaffected by the blade that had impaled him through the chest.

"It was then, in the weak light from the fire pit off to the side, that Richard got his first good look at the killer.

"Three knives were buried up to their brass cross guards in the man's chest. Only the handles were showing. Richard saw, too, the broken end of a sword blade jutting out from the center of the man's chest. The point of that same blade stuck out from the man’s back.

"Richard recognized the knife handles. All three were the style carried by the men of the First File.

"He looked from those blades that should have killed the big man, up to his face. That was when he realized the true horror of the situation, and the reason for the unbearable stench of death."

Sequel to the #1 New York Times best seller The Omen Machine.

    "As expected "

    Once again Terry did not disappoint. I have enjoyed all of his works of a fantasy master. if you are a fan of his style which is of his own and I have listened to no other other than the Shannara series and Tolkien that I have enjoyed as much.

    "I love this story but..."

    I love this storyline but as others have said Terry needs to watch out because he gets a little repetitive. Especially in his turn of phrase, and can be preachy at times.

    Story
    "Yeah.... kind of got on my nerves."
    What disappointed you about The Third Kingdom?

    Kept repeating obvious conclusions It just seemed overly explained.


    What was most disappointing about Terry Goodkind’s story?

    I thinks the part where the torched woman tell a prophecy that is so unbelievably detailed and then the dude Like "Duh... I still don't understand... I need to kill Kahlan to learn more." Hard stuff to listen to.

    Any additional comments?

    I loved the Sword of Truth series, and I was really excited about the prospect continuing the story when I first heard about The Omen Machine. However, after forcing myself through Omen Machine, and after trudging through The Third Kingdom, I can't do it anymore. These books were so repetitious and dull the only thing that kept me going was the fact that I have already invested so much time in this author and this world. I've read reviews of the next book and it sounds much the same as these last two. I can't read or listen to any more of these plots where the same idea is beaten so dead it turns to glue.

    "Outstanding Book!"

    Yet again, Goodkind delivers an engaging and exciting story! From the first word, the reader is wraped up in the expansive world they have come to love in this series. Can not wait for the next installment!

    "omg"

    feel bad for Ricard. hasn't the author ever heard of the concept of "they lived happily ever after"?give them a break. just doing the same thing over over doesn't make a good story or series. stick me with a fork. i am done with these stories.

    Story
    "Goodkind belabors every issue"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I did enjoy the story but it would be a much better book if it were 12 hours instead of 17. Goodkind tells every argument three different ways. Once is quite enough Terry.


    If you’ve listened to books by Terry Goodkind before, how does this one compare?

    Because of the rambling around a 5/10


    Have you listened to any of Sam Tsoutsouvas’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Sam is one of my favorite readers. Also tell a Great Tale.


    Was The Third Kingdom worth the listening time?

    12 hours of it surely was. The other 5 was just filling time


    Any additional comments?

    Terry Goodkind is a great writer. I just wish he didn't think he has to make the books longer than they need to be. I really don't need to be told why in five different ways. In this case Samantha was going with him but it took almost an hour to get it out.

    "Can't wait for the next book!!"

    You won't stop reading, the story will build still the end and then you want more.
    All your main character are back and some new ones to make it interesting.

    "Contract Obligation Story Arc"

    You could stop with Confessor and be satisfied with the Series...but if you read The Omen Machine like I did, be ready for a time jumping story with repetitious dialogue that feels like he was filling space to meet the requirements of his contract.

    I am in it now for new story arc but you could save yourself.
