Publisher's Summary

An accident leads to the discovery of a mysterious machine that has rested hidden deep underground for countless millennia. The machine awakens to begin issuing a series of increasingly alarming, if minor, omens. The omens turn out to be astonishingly accurate, and ever more ominous. As Zedd tries to figure out how to destroy the sinister device, the machine issues a cataclysmic omen involving Richard and Kahlan, foretelling an impending event beyond anyone’s ability to stop. As catastrophe approaches, the machine then reveals that it is within its power to withdraw the omen... In exchange for an impossible demand.

This novel was not at all what I expected. Terry Goodkind's writing style has really matured with this novel, and it is extremely evident. The story line starts in an entirely different direction than where I thought it would and travels a path I didn't expect. While it is clearly a fresh start on a new series I am extremely hopeful as to where it will go from here.

Still Suffering...

I am 3/4 through this story and determined to finish it. But, it won't be easy. This is probably the worst of the series, and there have been a few I didn't care for. The characters are so flat, tedious, inconsistant. The Protags are supposed to be wise and clever, but everything they do is so amazingly obvious. The masses are more stupid then the masses could ever be in real life. Everyone is reactionary, and once again this entire book is about prophecy. AGAIN. Anyway. I think I am done with Richard and Kahlan. I have read 12 or so of these and I should have stopped with the last one.
