Soul mates, pawns of prophecy and inheritors of an ancient conflict, Richard and Kahlan's destinies have been bound together since their first encounter in Wizard's First Rule. But now Richard lies on a funeral bier - suspended between the worlds of life and death and Kahlan faces her greatest challenge. She must fight for Richard's very existence, and Richard, trapped in the underworld, must fight to keep the world of life from ending. Desperate sacrifices are required. This is the final battle in a war three millennia old, a war that saw the Sword of Truth forged, a war that could mean the end, not only of their lives, but of their world.

Brilliant story line - bad habits
I would recommend the series to a friend, but warn them of my frustrations with Terry's writing style. I would also recommend print over audio in this case
The Sword of Truth Series is a brilliant story line, and this last book does a wonderful job tying everything together. Unfortunately there are lot of things in Terry Goodkind's writing style that drive me crazy...over explaining things, over use of certain terms for dramatic affect, repeating too much backstory. In print, I could glance through those things that bothered me, but in Audio, I'm stuck listening.
The narrator is likely a very good narrator, and I can see him doing Shakespeare, but he is not a good match for this book. His tone 'drawn out' for lack of a better term, especially confusing when it's happening in sections where I would expect it to be fast paced. He also seems to make many of the characters sound rather condescending.
