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.)

Ghaleon, July 5, 2007 (view all comments by Ghaleon)
First of I'd just like to say that this is one of the best books I've ever read. Every page of it holds something to drag you further along. I swear, I sat down and started this book in the morning, and I couldn't let go till the evening when I read the last line. This is definitely worth a read if you are into fantasy novels, albeit it's the best of the Sword of Truth series to date. I eagerly anticipate the next book in the series.

Terry Goodkind has proven himself to be a great writer, especially with this novel. The actions of the people, both good and evil, are enough to make your heart race with fear and worry, or leap with the promise of good's triumph.
