Book 4 in the Sword of Truth series, and the best so far. This is a big/long book but my interest never sagged at any point. The same characters from the first three books, but a complex and involved story line that just keeps getting better and better. The audiobook goes for almost 29 hours. The narrator does a better job than the guy who narrated book 2, but unfortunately he mispronounces Kahlan's name throughout the book. According to all the previous books and the TV series based on the books, it should be pronounced 'Kay-Lin' but this narrator consistently pronounces it like it was 'Collin'. It takes some getting used to. The world is being over run by a plague and the only solution involves Kahlan and Richard each marrying someone they do not love instead of each other. LOTS of twists and turns in this book and you won't be able to put it down. ( )

Definitely one of the best books in the series so far. The plague that's unleashed is a very foreboding threat from start to finish, and it's sometimes heartbreaking to read about its victims. My only gripe is towards the end of the book when Richard becomes very depressed and boring despite having the power and knowledge he has. Otherwise a great book. ( )

Richard Cypher, war wizard and wielder of the Sword of Truth must battle the power-mad Emperor Jagang who returns with his multitude of demonic underlings. To defeat the evil Jagang and eliminate the sorcerous plague infecting the world, Richard must find the Temple of the Winds. HARD

gripping, trim, excellent. but a lot of sexual dealings, nothing too explicit, but I wouldn’t recommend it to any teen ( )
