I am starting to get tired of this series. Almost every book has something in it that keeps Richard and Kahlan apart, and this one is no exception. Nicci takes Richard away hoping he can provide her with an answer to a question she doesn't even know. Meanwhile, Kahlan leads the D'haran Empire against the impossibly large Imperial Order. While the story itself isn't too bad, the ending comes far too quickly.

Hopefully the next books will bring the series back to what it used to be. ( )

I enjoy the Sword of Truth series but this book I think is my favorite one. It chronicles conditions in a community in which the Order has controlled for a long time. A community governed by rules that control commerce in order to take care of the poor and underprivileged. It sheds light on what it is like to be in a welfare society. ( )

This was the second time that I'd read 'Faith of the Fallen,' and for the second time I have been completely blown away by Terry Goodkind's incredible skill. The new characters we meet in this (The sixth instalment of the Sword of Truth series) are so realistic and relatable. I found myself rooting for both sides at points; both The Order, and the people of the Midlands. It is shocking for me to have re-read something and to have it still be as enchanting and spectacular as the first time I glimpsed such work. The plot was well crafted and I found that in many ways, The Order represented a sort of corrupt religion, inspiring faith through threat and false promises alone (like some politicians as well I suppose.) I loved that we got to explore more of Sister Nicci's past within this stunning volume. The drama hardly ever lets up and keeps you wanting more, more, more. I would definitely recommend this to everyone I know. ( )

Goodkind is at his best when providing social commentary that feels relevant as well as interesting, wrapping it around a fascinating story that stands out from the rest of the series as the uncontested best of the bunch. Many of the clichés used in his earlier novels are absent, Kahlan escapes the obnoxiously overused role of the damsel in distress for the most part and this is probably as enjoyable as she's ever been and probably ever will be. It introduces us to what is probably the deepest and most tragic character of the franchise and gives us a much needed new perspective of the antagonists of the last three books, and thankfully the underworld and the keeper are barely even mentioned. The primary message of the Sword of Truth series seems to culminate in its entirely in the climax of this book, it's probably the best thing Goodkind has ever written and has yet to be topped. ( )

Book description
As his beloved Kahlan lies close/ to death, Richard Rahl, who distrusts prophecy more than anyone, is confronted by a compelling vision - one hat bears a terrible price. It would mean taking Kahlan away to safety while abandoning his people to a grim fate.

As savage hordes stand poised to invade their homeland, Richard and Kahlan's devotion, not only to each other but to their cause and their duty, is imperiled in the descending fury of war. 

Amid the turmoil, Nicci, a woman from Richard's past, haunted by her memory of him, makes a fateful decision. Despite Nicci's hunger to understand the source of Richard's indomitable will, her burning passion to destroy him commits her to the unthinkable.
