Publisher's Summary

Richard knew that there would be no help coming. It was all up to him to stop the threat or Kahlan would die.

They all would die.

Nine companions - Richard, Kahlan, the witch woman Shale and six Mord-Sith, Rikka, Vale, Cassia, Nyda, Berdine, and Vika - are hunting a warlock in the waterlogged depths of the People's Palace. It will take all their skills to close on their quarry, but do any of them understand the true power of a Witch's Oath? 

Witch's Oath is the fourth episode in Terry Goodkind's new serial novel, The Children of D'Hara. Told in irresistibly intense installments, this is the story of a world confronted by an apocalyptic nightmare.

So disappointing

Very disappointed with this series. Way too short and just STOPS! Come on Goodkind! so far these booklings should have been one book. The greed of trying to produce more books of 5 hours as opposed to The Sword of Truth books at 20 and 30 hours a piece. Knock Knock! Goodkind. Are you there and listening to your fans? We’re begging you to treat us like Sword of Truth fans and give us what we are use to. Longer books for the money we are spending. The story quality is still good. Just not long enough.

Train wreck

This series could not possibly have been written by Terry Goodkind. I have never been so dissatisfied. The storyline is fine but there’s clearly a lot wrong with the delivery. A lot of double talk and a style that reminded me of when I was in school writing an essay or assignment and trying to meet the requirement of being at least a paragraph long when all I could think of was a sentence worth.

It's just sad...

I've been a fan of Terry Goodkind since I was a teenager. By far my favorite author and the Sword of Truth world feels like a big part of my childhood!
That being said his writing has really taken a toll. It's sad because I feel like he is ruining the world he created with how badly done these new books of his are.
I dread, absolutely DREAD, when his characters start talking to each other. He repeats himself not once, not twice but to many times to count! It's like each character has gone completely stupid and each needs an explanation.. multiple times!
The action parts are good and get me excited as it reminds me of his old writing but then it falls back to the over talking... sigh.
I hate paying for these as I know it's a money grab but I can't help myself... I need more Sword of Truth world!

Narrator is bad. Story is great, but....

i have listened to every single english language Terry Goodkind book. even the non Richard and Kahlan books. don't like those, but that's a review for different books and place. i don't think the Children of D'Hara series should be reviewed one novella at a time. i kinda wish Terry just released it as one normal novel. anyway, having Richard and Kahlan back with the Mord Sith is like sliding into your favorite after work lounge wear and a comfortable pair running shoes. everything feels comfortable and cozy. not the story. that's got some nice twists and turns and moments of pure nostalgic terror. no spoilers since the story hasn't been fully releases. which is why i said reviewing one novella at a time is like trying to review Wizard's First Rule one chapter at a time. i can tell you that this story has the feel to it like The Omen Machine, The Third Kingdom and Severed Souls. not so much like the Wizard's First Rule series. if you're a Richard and Kahlan fan then get this series. unfortunately, you have to wait a few months between book, but its a small price toupee..

Writing has been terrible

How any times will they mention Power of Nine. If the characters had difficulty going to the loo, Richard would probably say we have the power of Nine and can do it etc.

Also, characters doing something and then revealing how they did it has been played out enough through the series and is even more pronounced in this book.

I guess the book being longer than the earlier books in the series really exposed how bad the writing has been overall in the book, and taken together, the entire series.
