“Makes an indelible impact.” ―Publishers Weekly on Faith of the Fallen
“Few writers have Goodkind's power of creation…a phenomenal piece of imaginative writing, exhaustive in its scope and riveting in its detail.” ―Publishing News on Temple of the Winds
“Highly recommended.” ―San Diego Union Tribune on Temple of the Winds
“Goodkind's greatest triumph: the ability to introduce immediately identifiable characters. His heroes, like us, are not perfect. Instead, each is flawed in ways that strengthen, rather than weaken their impact. You'll find no two-dimensional oafs here. In fact, at times you'll think you're looking at your own reflection.” ―SFX on Blood of the Fold
About the Author
Terry Goodkind is a #1 New York Times bestselling author. His books include the eleven-volume Sword of Truth series, beginning with Wizard's First Rule, the basis for the television show Legend of the Seeker. Goodkind was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, where he also attended art school. Alongside a career in wildlife art, he has also been a cabinetmaker and a violin maker, and he has done restoration work on rare and exotic artifacts from around the world -- each with its own story to tell, he says. While continuing to maintain the northeastern home he built with his own hands, in recent years he and his wife Jeri have created a second home in the desert Southwest, where he now spends the majority of his time.

Top Customer Reviews
1 Wizard's First Rule - great book, Richard meets Kahlan and defeats Darken Rahl.
2 Stone of Tears - even better, Richard captured by sisters of light, Kahlan leads a ragtag army to victory.
3. Blood of the Fold - good book, enter new villain Jagang, Gars vs. Mirswith.
4. Temple of the Winds - ok book, evil brother, cool plague, Kahlan uses chimes to save Richard. Why did he not know the consequences of this while in the Temple?
5. Soul of the Fire - another mediocre book, wedding, Anderith, Fitch gets killed.
6. Faith of the Fallen - back to a good book, but Richard is getting a little preachy, Nicci captures Richard (kind of like he was captured in books 1 and 2), carving the statue.
7. Pillars of Creation - I don't know how to rate this one, I admire an author of a series like this to take a big chance and set a whole book around a new character (Richard's sister) but she doesn't play much of a role in the next two books, so what was the point?
8. Naked Empire- The worst of the bunch, we were introduced to the idea of the supremely ungifted and their threat to magic in book 7. This book just reiterates that and contains some of the worst preaching by Richard.
9. Chainfire - Kahlan missing, only Richard remembers her. The sisters of the dark have used an incredibly complex spell with huge side effects to do something that Zedd did simply in the 2nd book. Richard goes to Shota then to Zedd looking for answers but they cannot help him. Ok now you know what happens in the first 564 pages. I would recommend skipping those first 564 pages other than a few good scenes that are recycled from earlier books.Read more ›
Confessor is rife with so many problems, I don't even know where to begin. First of all, what was the point of Six? Why bring some other witch woman into the storyline, who somehow usurps Shota from her domain (though it's never explained how, or why), and has an interest in controlling Tamarang? Where did she come from, how did she meet Jagang, and why did she agree to work with him?Read more ›
There is a small subset of people who might benefit from a review of this book. Two subsets, actually. The first is comprised of people who have not yet started the series, and are reading reviews of the last book to see if the series is worthy of their time. (Short answer: NO.) The second is a group that I'm a part of: people who were initially entertained by Goodkind's story, but think he totally jumped the shark and now read purely from a sense of morbid curiosity about where Goodkind will take this absurd screed next.
In this final book, Goodkind manages to plumb depths of awfulness not yet explored. Some of the failings are familiar: he attempts to be poignant and is instead awkwardly maudlin; he attempts to be profound and deep but is instead narrow and shrill; he attempts to create richness of character and instead renders his cast as absurd cartoons. But as he wraps the series up, Goodkind slips even further as he ham-handedly ties off the lingering loose ends.Read more ›

The fact I can get it right away with a lot more fun and I don't think that it was not immediately available to all of them in my head and a lot more fun and addicting and I don't... Read morePublished 19 days ago
Somewhat tedious re-reading all the concepts he seemed to need to lay out in every chapter to remind readers what the core beliefs of each character were. Read morePublished 1 month ago
