Richard and Kahlan are celebrating the wedding of their beloved friend, Cara, when they begin to recieve accounts of various people around the city speaking of prophecies. Richard and Kahlan don’t think much of it until they find a strange machine hidden away in a secret chamber underneath the Garden of Life within the palace. A machine that produces the same prophecies the people have been muttering.
I first read this book when it came out, a little over a year ago, but decided to reread it since the second one just recently came out. I could seriously read this book (and everything by Terry Goodkind) about a million times and never get tired of it. This book is fantastic! But I’m a very very VERY biased person to listen to, especially since the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind is one of my favorite book series of all time. It was just so wonderful to read about these beloved characters again; Richard, Kahlan, Cara, Nicci, Zedd, and Nathan. It really felt to me as if I was visiting with old friends. What a great feeling to have when reading a new book! In any case, this story is extremely well written, (although not quite as long as the other previous books) and the ending was concluded well, with enough information to keep the reader hoping for at least another book or two! I wouldn’t pick up this book unless you have read the previous books in the Sword of Truth series, but if you haven’t read them, I really recommend that you do, because it is an awesome series and one that you will never forget.
