Highly recommended. Goodkind's compelling prose weaves a magic spell over readers. Terry Goodkind is a 1 New York Times bestselling author. His books include the eleven-volume Sword of Truth series, beginning with Wizard's First Rule , the basis for the television show Legend of the Seeker. Goodkind was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, where he also attended art school. Alongside a career in wildlife art, he has also been a cabinetmaker and a violin maker, and he has done restoration work on rare and exotic artifacts from around the world -- each with its own story to tell, he says.
While continuing to maintain the northeastern home he built with his own hands, in recent years he and his wife Jeri have created a second home in the desert Southwest, where he now spends the majority of his time. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

Although he does repeat certain phrases or traits about his characters it's always at a place in the story that needs so I don't forget! His grammar is sometimes hard to put up with and he words things very simply but that's part of his charm.
Simple but deep characters. Plot twists are his masterpiece even though you know things will all be well - eventually. Love this author. Only one other author draws me in like this and that is Margaret Weiss of the Dragon Lance series long ago.
I love fantasy - so does Terry. Thank you Mr. Goodkind for years of pleasure. I have to say in some ways it has been interesting reading this series to see the development of the author. Unfortunately as he gets better at some things, others begin to lack. For instance, he got over the need for each book to be a neat little package in the last two volumes, allowing the plot to expand and develop over the final trilogy. Unfortunately, it comes at the expense of really any action at all.
There are small patches here and there, but this book, even more than Chainfire, is mostly a never ending litany of recaps from previous books and seemingly endless scenes in libraries discussing philosophy and prophesy. As I have said before, these philosophies are quite good and even intriguing.
He has a keen mind and understanding of human nature. However, I am reading fantasy to escape and enjoy big battles with good overcoming evil, not to be talked to death. I have never looked forward so much to the end of a series. I had hoped like Wheel of Time, the last three books would be non-stop action with every few moments literally raising the hair at the back of my neck. Instead I find it difficult to read more than a dozen pages before falling asleep.
Here is keeping my fingers crossed that the last book will magically break out and be an enjoyable read Though i love the series, the books have gone downhill since the th books. I barely the last two books are better than or 10 or so. In some cases you can avoid reading them I hope the Nikki series is much better.
May give 1st book a try. The earlier books were worse with double words or phrases, etc. I also wish they would figure out the difference between "ensure" and "insure" the latter seems to be the only way this term is used and it's used a lot. All of this takes you out of the story as you're reading it.
All that being said, the story is a good one or I wouldn't have dealt with all of this to come this far in the series. Author - get a better editor! I don't think that I've ever read a book where the author intentionally tried to use the title of his book throughout the text.
The first time it was kind-of natural and makes you grin a little that he managed to do so. After the fifth or sixth time it became aggravating and annoying to see him trying so hard. As usual, there were still a few small grammar mistakes such as thrown for throne in the book which is also aggravating. I found that Goodkind was more anti-religion in this book than he had been in any of the others, not that he's been favorable in the past. I continue to be irritated by him just throwing his view out there so clearly in a fiction novel.
If I wanted to read intentional allegory and commentary on social events, I would do so but I don't enjoy it in my fiction. The story itself was like most of the other book's story lines.
There's a desperate struggle for Richard and Kahlan to be together but everything is conspiring against them with incredible odds of it ever happening. There are a few interesting things in this book about how spells work and such but for the most part it seems to only be more of the same struggles that the rest of the series has presented.
There are better fantasy series out that with more varied plots and more realistic writing. I'm not expecting complete realism on everything but seriously, for once just let things not work out the way everyone expects. Otherwise the reader is left feeling cheated when things are neatly tied up because of lucky coincidences.
I feel this series has far too much of this to be enjoyable. I gave this a 4 star because it continued the story of which I am interested in. Yes sometimes the author repeats a lot of the same things and it gets frustrating because you just want him to move on to the point.. A bit of a cliff hanger. Nothing really gets solved, but this is the 2nd of the trilogy to chainfire and it continues the Sword of Truth series.
There are some frustrating parts and some "OMG I can't believe this is happening again" but overall if you're a fan of the series you should read it! See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. Having read a lot of the reviews I was not expecting much from this book even though I absolutely love all the rest of them.
However I couldn't resist giving it a go and I am so glad I did. There are some bits when the explanations go on a bit such as the spell construction and some of the description scenes of the atrocities but I kept going. I realised that the people who go on are the characters who would do that in their lives and as for the other scenes, horrible as it is we need to get the feelings of the horrors.
I love the long books and get so involved in them that I just don't want them to stop. A brilliant book and author who really gets into the story and allows us to be part of it. Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote.
