For everyone else, the torment is about to begin.Richard Rahl and his wife, Kahlan, have been reunited after their long separation, but with winter descending and the paralyzing dread of an army of annihilation occupying their homeland, they must venture deep into a strange and desolate land. Their quest turns to terror when they find themselves the helpless prey of a tireless hunter.Exploited by those intent on domination, Jennsen finds herself drawn into the center of a violent struggle for conquest and revenge. Worse yet, she finds her will seized by dark forces more abhorrent than anything she ever envisioned. Only then does she come to realize that the voices were real.

If you know up front that the Richard,Kahlan, and the usual cast are not the main characters in "The PIllars of Creation" then the story is not dissapointing. They serve as the background story for most of the book until the last several chapters. This book centers around 2 other offspring of Darken Rahl, Jennsen and Oba. Rather then distracting from the series, these new characters expand and inrich the story. It starts off a liitle slow but worth listening to the end.

Ruined by the Narrator

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I think anyone that really enjoys a robotic style voice with improper inflections would really enjoy listening to this book.

What did you like best about this story?

Due to the narrator I liked the story being over best.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jim Bond?

I think Stephen Hawkings could have read this book for us and sounded less mechanical than Jim Bond did. However, if I could have my way in the matter I would have cast almost any of the other narrators from this series...preferably Sam Tsoutsouvas, but Buck Schirner or John Kenneth would also have made it much better.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Pillars of Creation?

The scenes where Jim Bond is reading are the ones I would have cut...sadly that is the whole book.

Any additional comments?

Please Audible, I'm begging here, as a fan of audio books (many different genres) and a fan of Goodkind, please re-do the books narrated by Jim Bond, the man has no business narrating any books, but especially this series! I love the series, have read them all and was so looking forward to hearing them read, but it is more a torture, having to struggle through listening to Bond, than anything resembling a relaxing time listening to a beloved series.
