“Hannis Arc, working on the tapestry of lines linking constellations of elements that constituted the language of Creation recorded on the ancient Cerulean scroll spread out among the clutter on his desk, was not surprised to see the ethereal forms billow into the room like acrid smoke driven on a breath of bitter breeze. Like an otherworldly collection of spectral shapes seemingly carried on random eddies of air, they wandered in a loose clutch among the still and silent mounted bears and beasts rising up on their stands, the small forest of stone pedestals holding massive books of recorded prophecy, and the evenly spaced display cases of oddities, their glass reflecting the firelight from the massive hearth at the side of the room.” “Since the seven rarely used doors, the shutters on the windows down on the ground level several stories below stood open in a fearless show of invitation. Though they frequently chose to use windows, they didn’t actually need the windows any more than they needed the doors. They could seep through any opening, any crack, like vapor rising in the early morning from stretches of stagnant water that lay in dark swaths through the pear barrens.” “The open shutters were meant to be a declaration for all, including the seven, to see that Hannis Arc feared nothing.” Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Funny, they say this is Sword of Truth #12, but technically speaking that is not the case. Disney has no ability to use the contents of this book in their stories they make for TV or movies. This is a "Richard & Kahlan Novel" same thing, but legally different. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather Constantino | 1/19/2014

    " Book started off kind of slow with everyone running around talking about prophecy. It picked up about halfway through when the newest villian was introduced. Ended with a battle scene, but not with who I expected. Goodkind definitely left it open for more books! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 1/13/2014

    " I love the Sword of Truth series. I don't think Goodkind is capable of writing crap, but even if he did, I think I would just keep reading this series because I love the characters and the world so much. Goodkind always seem to have new plot twist up his sleeve which I really appreciate. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 John Hanscom | 1/12/2014

    " Dumb, dumb, dumb - and did I mention, dumb. Foe example - a magician who can stop an assassin can't get a dog off her chest; a man saves the day as he is entombed fully clothed (with a knife) when all others are entombed naked. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ross Raiff | 1/5/2014

    " Probably one of the best books I have read in a while. I could hardly take a break from reading it to find out what happened next. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Konnie | 12/23/2013

    " I was excited when I heard Goodkind was going to write a continuation from the Sword of Truth series. He did not disappoint, he introduced new characters and a new plot that has me waiting impatiently for the next two. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt Robbins | 12/18/2013

    " The plot is similar to the other books. Introduces a new antagonist but doesn't bring resolution (sequels!). Slow starting and very descriptive, picks up near the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave | 11/22/2013

    " Completely sets up for a ton more books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kush Gulati | 10/2/2013

    " Not good. Should have just left the series alone. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal | 9/24/2013

    " Really disappointed with this one, it left a big piece of its story line hanging. Maybe he will fix it in the next book..... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jack | 6/19/2013

    " I loved the Sword of Truth series, but honestly it seemed like he phoned it in this time. It was good, but sub par for Goodkind. I hope he finds his groove befor the next installment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 5/1/2013

    " Not the best in the sword of truth series, but it's hard to beat the first 3. None the less, it was enjoyable "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jon | 2/25/2013

    " Eh.... wasn't as impressed by this as the previous series. Seems like he tried to keep something going that should really be done. But I'll probably read the next one anyway. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nikki Collins | 8/14/2012

    " Can't wait for the next one! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 K.zsi | 3/9/2012

    " Altough it was good to read about "them" again, and i did enjoyed this book, it was ..not for me.. i wasnt feeling devastated by the end, i didn't have feelings like what am i gonna do after this, what am i gonna read after this, i read it and it was ok, that is all, nothing special. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Antony Cain | 10/29/2011

    " I honestly wish I hadn't read this one as it has soured my memories of the the real series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 10/20/2011

    " Altho quite dark, it all makes internal sense. More, his endings always surprise me. Just when I think he's written himself into a corner, out comes something I never saw coming. My only problem is that it takes him so long to write the next one, and I'm not the patient sort. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennavier | 10/15/2011

    " I was glad to see a new Terry Goodkind book, excited to read about Richard and Kahlan, and hopeful about seeing a different take on prophecy. While the book was good, it lacked the depth and detail of his previous works. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shellbelle19 | 10/12/2011

    " Glad to be reading Goodkind again. I really do love the way he writes. You never want to put the book down. I thought this was going to be the last of this series....again..... but I guess I was wrong. Again this one doesn't end so I guess I will be waiting for yet another book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacy | 10/11/2011

    " Good book! Will have to go back and read the rest of the series! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynne - The Book Squirrel | 10/8/2011

    " It was so good to read more about Richard and Kahlan again. I was awake till 2am to finish this! Now I want to know what happens next - which is exactly how all the rest of the series left you at the end of each book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Soan | 9/29/2011

    " This is it. I'm done with Terry Goodkind.
    As some reviewers mentioned before it, this book doesn't have TG's touch. It seems to me someone else wrote it and just tried to make it to 500 pages, even though it could've been done in 100.
    Very disappointing. "
