" Not my favorite in the series. But better than the last. I found a few inconsistencies that bothered me and I felt like there wasnt A LOT going on, but it was good character build now that I'm reading Faith of the Fallen. I notice Terry sometimes does this from one novel to the next and you sometimes just dont get something til a couple books later. Which is enjoyable but also annoying. I probably would have stopped reading these books honestly, but I already bought the whole series and now feel inclined to keep reading. I really do enjoy Richard's character even though I've read a lot people find him to "preachy." I really dont feel that way at all, I feel like his character most helps the reader understand the struggle that is occuring in the world of magic. I'm also really happy that Cara's character has been a main fixture, she's great comic relief and just a general badass which I really enjoy. I will admit I'm sort of over Sisters of the Light/Dark and Jagang altogether, and wish Terry would come up with a better antagonist, but what can you really do? I'm actually kind of glad Kahlan got beaten nearly to death and the story had to migrate away from that because its sort of boring and I really dont find dream walking all that an exceptional of an idea. Its just really easy to poke holes clean through. "
