Enjoyable book and a compelling series. Dialogue can occasionally be a little wooden. Goodkind is a bit of a sadist to his characters but the story is very good.

This particular book goes in an unexpected direction that I found particularly compelling. ( )

I enjoyed this book, but I have to admit it was for the stories of the secondary characters. The Sisters of Light and Dark, prelate and prophet, the after effects of Richard's actions in the last book were all so much more interesting than Richard and Kahlan in this installment. Having read it now, I'm not at all surprised the TV show ended just before this book, because not only are Richard and Kahlan not together for 99% of the book, but their separate storylines aren't nearly as engrossing as the other characters.

this series is awesome! It is like a streamlined Jordan-fantastic but without so many annoying characters. However, Sexuality is more prevalent. Lesbianism is introduced and treated as normal. ( )

Awesome!!! Loved the whole battle the the Palace of the Prophets! and good-old Merissa finally got what she deserved. the sliph was pretty creepy though. loved all the comical elements between Richard's Mord-Sith guards and himself. really funny. all in all...AWESOME!!!! :) ( )

Book description
Richard ha deciso di raggiungere l’amata Kahlan, regina della Galea, che sta tornando verso Ebinissia con l’intenzione di ricostruirla per poi governare la sua nuova patria. I piani di Richard vengono però sconvolti dall’entrata in scena di due temibili nemici, alleati tra loro: si tratta dell’Ordine Imperiale, l’esercito guidato dal misterioso Jagang, che vuole sottomettere il mondo intero, e della Stirpe dei Fedeli condotta dal generale Tobias Brogan, un uomo che odia la magia al punto di volerla estirpare per sempre, poiché la considera il mezzo con il quale il Guardiano del mondo sotterraneo influenza il mondo dei vivi…

La Spada della Verità è uno dei cicli fantasy piú amati e seguiti nel mondo. Questo terzo volume de La Spada della Verità raccoglie i romanzi La Stirpe dei Fedeli e L’Ordine Imperiale, continuando l’entusiasmante epopea di Richard e Khalan nella loro lotta contro il potere fatale e irresistibile del male.

«Un’opera fantasy fenomenale, di grande inventiva, che rivela senza ombra di dubbio uno dei maestri di questo genere letterario.»
Piers Anthony
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0812551478, Mass Market Paperback)

An Epic of Two Worlds

In a world as rich and real as our own, Richard Rahl and Kahlan Amnell stand against the ancient forces which besiege the New World-- forces so terrible that when last they threatened, they could only be withstood by sealing off the Old World from whence they came. Now the barrier has been breached, and the New World is again beset by their evil power.

War and treachery plague the world, and only Richard and Kahlan can save it from an armageddon of unimaginable savagery and destruction.

Terry Goodkind, author of the brilliant bestsellers Wizard's First Rule and Stone of Tears, has created his most masterful epic yet, a sumptuous feast of magic and excitement replete with the wonders of his unique fantasy vision.
