Publisher Comments:

On the day she awoke remembering nothing but her name, Kahlan Amnell became the most dangerous woman alive. For everyone else, that was the day that the world began to end.

As her husband, Richard, desperately searches for his beloved, whom only he remembers, he knows that if she doesn't soon discover who she really is, she will unwittingly become the instrument that will unleash annihilation. But Kahlan learns that if she ever were to unlock the truth of her lost identity, then evil itself would finally possess her, body and soul.

If she is to survive in a murky world of deception and betrayal, where life is not only cheap but fleeting, Kahlan must find out why she is such a central figure in the war-torn world swirling around her. What she uncovers are secrets darker than she could ever have imagined.

Review:

"In the eagerly awaited second volume of bestseller Goodkind's Chainfire trilogy, which will wrap up his long-running Sword of Truth series, star-crossed Richard Cypher (aka Lord Richard Rahl) searches for his beautiful 'phantom' wife, Kahlan Amnell, who lost her memory in 2005's Chainfire after the Sisters of the Dark cast a spell on her. Meanwhile, Richard has memorized a magical instruction book, The Book of Counted Shadows, which will help open the three boxes of the Orden, though the consequences could be dire for the Old World: 'Open the correct box, and one gains the power of Orden-the essence of life itself, power over all things living and dead... Open the wrong box... and every living thing in existence is incinerated into nothingness. It would be the end of all life.' Despite the simplistic good vs. evil conflict and bland prose, the author expertly juggles many complex plot lines and brings to life a host of colorful characters. Goodkind has recently made a deal with Sam Raimi of the Spiderman franchise to translate the series into film." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

As usual Terry Goodkind belts out another wonderfully written part of his story! It leaves me on the edge of my seat and begging for more! This book throws you right into the fire and leaves you wanting. The characters are heartbreakingly emotional and you feel a true connection and caring with them. Richard Rahl finally convices people his beloved is real and then he must seek her out. Little does he know she is in a bad situation being captured by the Sisters of the Dark, and then Emperor Jahgang(ie.the bad guys). I can hardly wait till his next book comes out. I will be thrilled, pleased and horribly sad to see the end of this brilliantly written series.
