Publisher's Summary

Terry Goodkind returns to the epic Sword of Truth saga in a tale of sweeping fantasy adventure bound to enthrall his growing legion of fans. In Temple of the Winds, the New York Times best selling fourth novel in the series, the Seeker of Truth Richard Rahl and Mother Confessor Kahlan Amnell risked their lives and souls to free the land of D'Hara from the scourge of a magical plague. But in doing so they accidentally unleashed the Chimes, a magic whose threat will reach far beyond D'Hara.Now it has become terrifyingly clear that the Chimes have the potential to bring down all that Richard and Kahlan have worked to protect, and even the power of the Sword of Truth may not be enough to stem the tide of their unleashed magical force. But if the Chimes cannot be stopped, first they will ravage Richard and Kahlan, then all of D'Hara, and then the entire world.

Not his best not his worst

As with most audiobooks a lot of the listener's experience comes down to the reader of the audiobook. The story was so so in the beginning and got better towards the end but ended pretty abruptly. But the reader of this novel is 10x better than the previous one. I'm glad I didn't stop at the last book and was able to make my way thru this one. I've read pretty good reviews of the book to come.

Soul of the Fire

First of all, I can't wait for this book to end so I can get to the next one, hoping it will pick up the pace a bit. Secondly, I'd like to know who picks the readers. I think I may have gotten spoiled with Sam Tsoutsouvas in book 1. He did such a fabulous job, everyone else seems mediocre at best.
And it's not fair to call Dick Hill mediocre. Or any of the other readers.
But misspronouncing Kahlan's name is inexcusable.
And Zed, whom Tsoutsouvas portrays as a powerful wizard, later comes across like a little old gnome.
Come on Terry, you copied Robert Jordan in some ways (well, more than some. I keep expecting that at some point they'l refer to the sisters of the light as Ais Sedai).
So, why not copy Jordan and stick to using the same narrator(s) through out the series?
I really couldn't care less how Kahlan's name is pronounced. As long as it doesn't change depending on who is reading.
I do plan on getting through the entire series. Even suffering through book 5. (I am half way through.)
And the TV series? What a joke.
