Rodney Wilder, May 6, 2014 (view all comments by Rodney Wilder)
While for the bulk of this book I found it a constant struggle to care about the main characters, as always, it finished strong and picked up eventually.

This book was a test in agitation and tolerance for me. I not once cared for Jennsen. I found her infuriatingly ignorant, and while that was a constant annoyance, I recognize the importance of her being that kind of character. I could never attribute that as a fault to Goodkind; he wrote this book as skillfully as ever - he is just really good at creating characters. Jennsen was unbearable in her ignorance and obstinate nature, but she was created believably and consistently. Goodkind's skill was surely present throughout this book, it just happened that the book was populated by the evil and the easily deceived.

Of course, as always, the book had a great ending. After 500+ pages of following these characters I could care less for, it was nice to finally see Richard, Kahlan and Cara again. It took long enough, but longing makes the heart grow fonder, no?

3 out of 5, in that I simply did not want to spend as much time with Jennsen, Sebastian, or even Oba as I was forced to through this book. 5 stars would have seen a more equal distribution of scenes and character appearances.
