A new Kahlan and Richard fantasy novel from best-selling author Terry Goodkind.
An accident leads to the discovery of a mysterious machine that has rested hidden deep underground for countless millennia. The machine awakens to begin issuing a series of increasingly alarming, if minor, omens. The omens turn out to be astonishingly accurate and ever more ominous.
As Zedd tries to figure out how to destroy the sinister device, the machine issues a cataclysmic omen involving Richard and Kahlan, foretelling an impending event beyond anyone's ability to stop.
As catastrophe approaches, the machine then reveals that it is within its power to withdraw the omen...in exchange for an impossible demand.

Having the final 43 chapters
Cara she stands no nonsense
Hudine -If idiots could fly, the internet would be the world's biggest airport and I'd be a jumbo jet.
No because there is only half of it
Zed, I dunno why just like him.
The one where it cuts off
I cried when I realized it's missing half the chapters
Guys don't buy this until you see it has a run time of more than 8 hours. I've pointed this out to audible but honestly someone has to put a warning up here.
Where is part 2? only first part downloaded, and can't find part two in the audible library???
Having the missing last 43 chapters
Hopefully the missing 43 chapters
Sam performance is fine as always
Bit disappointed I only got half the book :-)
I'd be most interested to find why the first reviewer gave the book 5 stars across the board when it's obviously incomplete.
People who enjoy books without endings will love this one. It is exiting up until the point it prematurely stops. Of course, when this reports this to audible they carefully avoid doing anything. This to people might enjoy, at least that is, if they enjoy sending long streams of pointless emails.
Terry Goodkind could go to some writing classes and perhaps learn how to right un-repetitive prose and three dimensional characters. He could also let half a chapter pass by without feeling the need to explain everything as he goes along. It kills suspense and further points out the weaknesses of the plot (of which there are many).
Possibly, his voices isn't entirely offensive but I get the impression his range might be weak. It could be however that he just could not be bothered to try hard with such a sub standard novel.
The thing with Terry Goodkind books is that they are astoundingly moorish. I hate every moment listening to them but like some addled drug addict I find myself wiping the literary vomit of my shoes and looking for my next hit.
The audio book is incomplete. This can be most clearly seen on amazon where it states that the book contains slightly more pages than its sequel 'The Middle Kingdom' and yet despite that is half the length on audio. As far as I can tell some idiot was lazy while uploading it and forgot to put up the second half. More than that, they then labelled it as the completed work which anyone reading a synopsis of the book can tell its not. Dont buy this book until it appears as at least over 12 hours long. Even then, dont buy this book unless you are already Goodkind hooked or else a moron who gets some perverse delight out of listening to crimes against literature.
Captivating, Magical, Thrilling
Richard Cypher, to have a character that portraits every thing and nothing all at once,mythical and magical
Zedd, his portrayal was whitty, blunt and mind casting, ability to make you laugh and tutt.
I like how the relationship between the characters was portrayed you could really feel the emotion
