In the concluding novel to his epic fantasy series, Goodkind ties up most of the plot threads while leaving some open for possible later exploration. Like much of the series, this volume is dominated by diatribes on the evils of socialism and religion. Despite this, listeners will be drawn into the complex plot twists and the final battle between Richard Rahl and Emperor Jagang. Sam Tsoutsouvas compels listeners through the story with a deep, stern voice that perceptibly softens when speaking the dialogue of women and children. Tsoutsouvas maintains a consistent tone and pace that align well with the book. L.E. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

“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
