Book Four of The Sword of Truth—the series first begun in Wizard's First Rule—returns listeners to the world of Richard Cypher, a simple woods guide who never dreamed he would be named the Seeker of Truth and become caught up in magic, war, and dangers so extraordinary that the fate of his entire world would hang on his actions and decisions.

The dangerous, fanatical Imperial Order, under the leadership of the power-mad Emperor Jagang and his multitude of demonic underlings, unleashes a deadly plague. To find a cure Richard Cypher and his beloved Kahlan Amnell must seek out the legendary Temple of the Winds, a fortress of evil sealed away for three thousand years. But the path of the Seeker of Truth is never an easy one—even if he can reach the Temple at all, there is no guarantee he'll ever return.

Listener Opinions

    " Temple of the winds is a very intriguing book, especially for Goodkind. It holds your attention riveted the whole time. The theme of this book is forgiveness. However, the events that unfold to set up the need for forgiveness are intensely illustrated. This is one of Goodkind's more graphic books and as such, it was harder to enjoy. None of the following books contain the same amount of questionable scenes. I think he must have learned that, although intense and graphic scenes can help demonstrate your point, when used too much, it can turn off readers. I was glad that the rest of the books didn't carry on the same way. "

    " This series has really gone downhill for me, which is a shame as I loved the first Sword of Truth book (Wizards First Rule). I struggled to finish Temple of the Winds and has left me with no real desire to continue reading the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 1/6/2014

    " Excellent book. This one leaves you with some heartpounding freakouts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff | 1/5/2014

    " It was intense--and I couldn't put it down! Starting right from the end of book #3--the action carried it forward much quicker. There was an additional murder mystery thrown in (and really--did we need another random plot point to tuck into everything else) which was pretty obvious but somewhat entertaining. I think it was finally much more action oriented than just purely character driven--less chapters to rehash all the same plot points too. Sets up a nice mystery for the fifth book as well--which I start anew. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shawn Camp | 12/30/2013

    " I almost gave up on this book and the series. It started out extremely slow and hard to gather interest in any of the storylines. Halfway through I still felt the same, but I kept clamoring away because I liked the first few books of the series. Luckily the last quarter of the book was mildly interesting that I was able to push myself to finish it. Not sure when I'll pick up the next book based on this effort. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Briana Patterson | 12/28/2013

    " The formula is getting a bit tired in this one. I may pick it up later, but for now I think I'm going to move on to bigger, better things. As a sporatic reader, this feels like a waste of a good summer read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim Broder | 12/28/2013

    " The 3rd quarter of this book was slow and a little tough to get through, the end kicked ass though "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurel Haswell | 12/18/2013

    " Just as good as the rest of them! The end, as usual, was nearly impossible to put down! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric Weigner | 11/29/2013

    " I love Terry Goodkind, but this one is different than the first three. I didn't like it as much. I've heard the next one in the series is better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nikki Ryan-Kahler | 11/25/2013

    " Intriguing series "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachele | 11/24/2013

    " I felt that this book was a little bit of a filler, but there were still some good parts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa42 | 10/25/2013

    " Didn't have nearly the disturbing scenes that 2 did. I really liked it. Great character development and still interesting stories. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Denise Cameron | 8/21/2013

    " So tired of this sort of main character, and the main couple's love problems. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 9/30/2012

    " I just finished a re-read of this book. So far, it's my least favorite in the series. I think probably because of what Richard and Kahlan have to go through in this book. And, Richard's half-brother Drefan is just a scary character. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alexei Averchenko | 3/13/2012

    " Temple of the Winds marks a sad decay in quality of the Sword of Truth series. Featuring an annoying and cartoony villain, it also parts with the good times when main characters actually solved problems with their wits instead of plot contrivance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly Morgan | 5/17/2011

    " Oh my goodness! Kahlan and Richard's relationship to one of it's ultimate trials!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 9/16/2010

    " Not as good as #3 in the series, but I love following the characters on their adventures and am looking forward to more! I appreciate Goodkind's sense of justice and honor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marisa | 1/25/2010

    " Cool story...can get a little racy at times. Sometimes you just want to know the readers digest version so you don't have to read through all the gore. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Evan Leach | 11/16/2008

    " I didn't love any of the previous entries in the series, but at least the third one was a little shorter. This book waddles back over the 800 page mark, but has little to say that you can't find in 1,000 other fantasy stories. 2 stars. "
