Publisher's Summary

Descending into darkness, about to be overwhelmed by evil, those people still free are powerless to stop the coming dawn of a savage new world, while Richard faces the guilt of knowing that he must let it happen. Alone, he must bear the weight of a sin he dare not confess to the one person he loves...and has lost.Join Richard and Kahlan in the concluding novel of one of the most remarkable and memorable journeys ever written. It started with one rule and will end with the rule of all rules, the rule unwritten, the rule unspoken since the dawn of history.When next the sun rises, the world will be forever changed.

Good but....

I always get unabridged versions of my books, however, if ever there was a time for an abridged version the Chainfire Trilogy is it!!! OMG....some sections just go on and on! Don't get me wrong I love these books but why 3 books were needed for the Chainfire piece, I have no idea!! Whew...I'm glad I'm finally done with them!!!

A book that finally means something!

While at times, Goodkind's writing can be drawn out and lengthy, the message he ultimately delivers in this final Sword of Truth novel is life-changing. The struggles that Richard, Kahlan, and all their friends overcome is simply stunning, and I cannot get these characters out of my head. After reading this series, every other book I touched seemed to be either frivolous or pointless (which is not always bad), but Goodkind's work really means something to the human life and spirit. I'm not a religious person or anything, but the simple messages of truth, kindness, and freedom are so moving in the summation of this whole series.

If you are looking for a group of people that will change your life completely, I highly suggest getting to know Richard and Kahlan. These two are my literary heros. Bear with Goodkind's lengthy and often repeated descriptions, and discover an incredible world.

Great listen

If you've read or listened to the starting books you'll know you want to read some more, personally I found the reading better than the listening, but these are still a great listen if you don't have the hours and hours to spend reading the books
