An Epic of Awesome Power

Kahlan has at last gained the one goal she had always thought was beyond her grasp ... love. Against all odds, the ancient bonds of secret oaths, and the dark talents of men long dead, Richard has won her heart.

Amid sudden and disastrous events, Richard's life is called due to satisfy those treacherous oaths. To save his life, Kahlan must forsake Richard's love and cast him into the chains of slavery, knowing there could be no sin worse than such a betrayal.

Richard is determined to unlock the secrets bound in the magic of ancient oaths and to again be free. Kahlan, alone with the terrible truth of what she has done, must set about altering the course of a world thrown into war. But even that may be easier than ever winning back the heart of the only man she will ever love.

Rodney Wilder, May 6, 2014 (view all comments by Rodney Wilder)
I've read few works so capable of emotional manipulation like this one. I already knew Terry Goodkind was an absolute master of his craft, but with the series' second book, "Stone of Tears", I was taken to new extremes I had not imagined. This book took me from the heights of Heaven and delight to the lowest, most emotionally excruciating moments fathomable. I was drawn in immediately, and so intensely bound to the characters fighting to survive, fighting to save that and those which they love. This book created an emotional connection I have honestly never achieved elsewhere, and it is the power of that connection that makes those heights astonishing and those depths heart-rending. There were moments in this book that made me, in absolute truth, want to die. Likewise, there are moments that make me want to weep and leap for joy, for the joy of the characters that I have come to know and love over this journey.

I love this book. Goodkind is, without question, the master of the field.
