Publisher's Summary

From the internationally best-selling author of the Sword of Truth series comes a new Richard and Kahlan novella. 

"They are the monsters under the bed when you are little, the shape just caught out of the corner of your eye when you thought you were alone, the shadow of something in a dark corner that surprises you and then isn't there. They stop you dead with a knot of unexpected terror in the pit of your stomach. We have all seen fleeting glimpses of them. Never long enough to see them as I saw them, but it was them. I recognized it the instant I saw it. We've all seen flashes of them, the dark shadow just out of sight. They could briefly terrify us before but never hurt us because they came from so far distant. They were never able to fully materialize in our world so we saw only transient glimpses of them, the shape of them if the light was just right, if the shadows were deep enough...if you were afraid enough. I think that the star shift has brought us closer to their realm so that they now have the power to step into our world and hurt us." (Kahlan Amnell)

Superbly

I do really excited about Richard and Kahlan have back. That’s the great continuation of the story. I am looking forward to reading the second part. And by the way John Skelley has awesome pronunciation and a sweet voice.

good but far too short for a book.

I was listening believing I was still at the introduction. and then, the end... ? I understand it was cheaper, but I could expect a bit more. The story was good though.

great intro to a story, but too short for a novel.

I love where this story is going, however it reads like the prologue to the story and then ends abruptly. I love the Richard and Kaylin stories and the Nicci Chronicles, but this should have been offered to the fans for free as a teaser for the first of many novels in a continuing story arc. I am a long time Terry Goodkind fan, and I would have gladly read this(what should have been an) excerpt and pre-ordered the coming novel. even if it came with the stipulation that there would be a long wait til the writer had time to properly flesh it out.

Terry Goodkind i a genius as usual in storytelling

I really loved the story, I just wish it didn't end so abruptly. I think there was way more to tell I, and the story sounds like it can go somewhere. Maybe he's going to write another one continue the storyline.

Offensively short.

I was very happy to learn that Richard and Kahlan stories are continuing, they're excellent!! Cheeky that it's so short though.... more like half a book!
