Publisher's Summary

When Angela was young, before she came to realize she had a rare ability, she was a rather ordinary girl. At least, that was what everyone said. But Angela is anything but ordinary. The daughter of a meth addict, she is convinced she was born a freak. Haunted by an abusive childhood, she was forced to become a woman far too soon. And in the process, she became more.
Angela juggles multiple jobs to live a secluded life in a cabin in the mountains. But she also lives a secret life, right under everyone's noses. Because her family's bloodline carries the ability to recognize killers, she adopts a solitary, violent existence in service of her own, personal mission in life. When Angela unexpectedly finds herself the prey of a group of international terrorists, she is the only one who knows the truth of what they are about to do. She might look like an unlikely hero. She might also be our only hope.

Intense and heart-pounding!

This book was intense! I loved it. Angela is fascinating in so many ways. I love how bad-ass she is, and for all of the right reasons! The story sucked me in and had my blood pressure up, but not in that maddening way that I hate. My heart raced, and I had fun learning what made Angela tick, and wondering what she could possibly do next. I got angry right along with her and felt her frustrations, but then, Wow! I can't tell you too much about that, without major spoilers. She's awesome! For those of you who like his Sword of Truth series, you'll be interested to know that Kahlan in the Con Dar is a children's tale in comparison.

Absolute Garbage

I haven’t read a Terry Goodkind book in many years. A few hours into this book and I am remembering exactly why.
I’m no prude, and I’m definitely not the type to clutch my pearls, but this book is a dumpster full of flaming trash. Repeated scenes of graphic rape, degradation, and torture are so grotesquely overused and shoved down the reader’s throat, that the book is a complete bore. It’s full of contrived scenes that, in my opinion, do nothing to develop the characters, propel the story, or communicate any meaningful theme. The narration is decent, but nothing can save this material.
I have wasted five hours of my life on this book. I have decided to call it quits and return it. Save yourself the credit and your time.

Fantastic

I've been a Terry Goodkind fan for years, so I took a chance on something new. Wow. Amazing story. Something new and very in-depth. I hope Mr Goodkind continues this series. I'm totally hooked!

Overworked

Story line was good although so extreme making it unbelievable at times. Biggest problem with this book is the repetitive phrasing. Over describing with the same phrases. Also the earnest nature of the reading made me need to have breaks from listening rather than never wanting to stop.
