“How much of this blood is his?” “Most of it, I’m afraid,” a second woman said as they both rushed along beside him. As Richard fought to focus his mind on his need to remain conscious, the breathless voices sounded to him as if they were coming from some great dim distance. He wasn’t sure who they were. He knew that he knew them, but right then it just didn’t seem to matter. The crushing pain in the left side of his chest and his need for air had him at the ragged edge of panic. It was all he could do to try to pull each crucial breath. Even so, he had a bigger worry. Richard struggled to put voice to his burning concern, but he couldn’t form the words, couldn’t get out any more than a gasping moan. He clutched the arm of the woman beside him, desperate to get them to stop, to get them to listen. She misunderstood and instead urged the men carrying him to hurry, even though they already panted with the effort of bearing him over the rocky ground in the deep shade among the towering pines. They tried to be as gentle as possible, but they never dared to slow. Not far off, a rooster crowed in the still air, as if this were an ordinary morning like any other. Richard observed the storm of activity swirling around him with an odd sense of detachment. Only the pain seemed real. He remembered hearing it once said that when you died, no matter how many people were with you, you died alone. That's how he felt now - alone. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacie | 2/11/2014

    " Really really liked this and it was refreshing to have Richard and Kahlan separated in this manner. Very intense plot and great action sequences and quite a page turner near the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shari Covitz | 2/9/2014

    " All Terry Goodkind's books are great if you like that genre of fiction. I do :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chenoa | 2/3/2014

    " This series should have ended with this book but instead it has picked up as a start to a trilogy. There were a couple hundred pages of wasted text in this book. In the end the book had some interesting ideas in it and some of the characters are still very interesting. However, why is it the characters have forgotten about this that have happened in the series that I have not? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 1/22/2014

    " So this book was better than the last. There was some repeating as is Goodkind's MO. Again, there is no rule that you have to read every single word on a page. I always skim the redundent stuff, sometimes I skip the detailed scenery, especially if we have already had a description of where ever he is describing.. I'm not going to go into the story because it is an older book and there are plenty of reviews out there that do. I basically just wanted to rate it. I think I have two more books left in this series... just need to power through it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nai Wang | 1/15/2014

    " I like the twist of this story arc. Really big change from previous volumes, makes it more interesting than the past 3. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kallie Desruisseaux | 1/7/2014

    " An amazing book in an amazing series. Politics, love, hate, magic, trust, confusion, betrayal, and more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thomas | 1/5/2014

    " Uber-depressing, but worth it after it all "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 George | 12/31/2013

    " 100 or so pages of what has gone before, 2 pages to describe every little detail of every event, and 665 pages later the only thing that has really happened is they decide they ought to do something about what happened on the first page. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tori | 12/20/2013

    " One of my favourite books! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joan | 12/9/2013

    " I find plots like this extremely frustrating. I couldn't get through this book fast enough. Finally at the very very end it got to the good part - like the last 25 pages maybe. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 LisaMarie Nicholson | 12/9/2013

    " Not a bad story but I was VERY disappointed with the ending and determined that there must be a sequel to this for the way it was left! Alot of detail which in some places was very interesting, and in others made me feel wayed down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marjolein Van meel | 11/9/2013

    " Een bizarre plotwending. Je wilt dat ketenvuur helemaal niet, ik heb elke bladzijde zitten wensen dat het ophield. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lara Amber | 4/19/2013

    " The series picks up and returns to its fun action roots with these last three books. The grand speeches are toned down and we're back to quick moving plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 3/27/2013

    " This really kept me on the edge of my seat with frustration because it wraps you up so much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha Ginter | 2/10/2013

    " Oh the feels 3 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenn | 8/10/2012

    " Amazing book! Incredible detail, makes you want to enter their world! I literally carried it around with me so any free minute was spent reading it! This book has been especially hard to read because I love the love between Richard and Kahlan and what they go through in this book is so sad. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rsoeffker | 7/21/2012

    " Every book in the series gets worse and worse. I will see it through, but only because I'm not a quitter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Douglas | 7/6/2012

    " Goodkind's anti-faith rhetoric tripped me up a bit as I was reading this, but it was still a good mystery story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miranda | 7/3/2012

    " I actually skipped a few pages here and there because it seemed to just go on and on and on and on about the same topic. But, it got really awesome towards the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian Allen | 4/28/2012

    " The start to the epic trilogy ending for the sword of truth series really good twist for the series where once again Richard must redefine his love for Kahlan "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 5/19/2011

    " The last 3 books center around Khalan being forgotten by all. I truly can't remember the details -
    I'm writing these reviews 2 years after reading....
    I just remember being very frustrated "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 5/17/2011

    " Great book. The adventure never stopped. A little preachy on ideology but never the less a great book! Purchased the next to on my e- reader. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jake | 5/6/2011

    " The sisters of the dark reappear in this one. I still enjoy this series very much but, I think I'm going to take a break from it for a while. Maybe I'll be as excited as I was at first. Or the books could be not moving fast enough and need some new a f "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelsey | 5/6/2011

    " I must say that I stick with this series because I do enjoy Terry Goodkind's books, however this one I did find myself skimming over a few repetitive parts and also felt that there was sometimes side-stories or what have you put in specifically to make the book longer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 4/25/2011

    " The length of his series allows the author to take a reader on a wandering tale. This was a significant piece of the series. Enjoyed it immensely. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen | 3/31/2011

    " plod, plod, zoom. Needed better editing "

    Good vs Evil Life vs Death
    Richard(Wizard in training) and Kahlan(Mother Confessor) save THEIR world. "

    " Really missed my favorite character in this one! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt | 3/9/2011

    " Only three stars cause I put in the time to read the whole thing and had no resolution. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe | 3/7/2011

    " I read it.
    It was mostly annoying. Half the book is about the world having forgotten somebody that was in the series from book 1. And, again, Terry Goodkind is way too heavy handed. It's really annoying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 matejcik | 2/20/2011

    " captivating and only twice as long as it needed to be. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 2/16/2011

    " This one did not get good reviews, but I think it was one of my faves... I loved the complicated plot. I came to love Cara and Nicci in a way I couldn't have had Kahlan been in the story. "
