Summary

From the internationally best-selling author of the Sword of Truth series comes a new Richard and Kahlan novella. 

"They are the monsters under the bed when you are little, the shape just caught out of the corner of your eye when you thought you were alone, the shadow of something in a dark corner that surprises you and then isn't there. They stop you dead with a knot of unexpected terror in the pit of your stomach. We have all seen fleeting glimpses of them. Never long enough to see them as I saw them, but it was them. I recognized it the instant I saw it. We've all seen flashes of them, the dark shadow just out of sight. They could briefly terrify us before but never hurt us because they came from so far distant. They were never able to fully materialize in our world so we saw only transient glimpses of them, the shape of them if the light was just right, if the shadows were deep enough...if you were afraid enough. I think that the star shift has brought us closer to their realm so that they now have the power to step into our world and hurt us." (Kahlan Amnell)

good but far too short for a book.

I was listening believing I was still at the introduction. and then, the end... ? I understand it was cheaper, but I could expect a bit more. The story was good though.

Superbly

I do really excited about Richard and Kahlan have back. That’s the great continuation of the story. I am looking forward to reading the second part. And by the way John Skelley has awesome pronunciation and a sweet voice.

Terry Goodkind i a genius as usual in storytelling

I really loved the story, I just wish it didn't end so abruptly. I think there was way more to tell I, and the story sounds like it can go somewhere. Maybe he's going to write another one continue the storyline.

The book was the same story told over and over. There's nothing new The world is gonna end and Richard has to fix it.

I love these characters

I am fully immersed in this world and these characters, so to start with know that I’ll read anything in this line.

Goodkind has decided to continue Richard and Kahlan’s story through shorter novels, which is cool. I’d say overall this story is interesting and gives us a glimpse in to the new threat facing Richard, Kahlan, and the D’haran empire. Without giving anything away, the ending is a moment that serves as both a payoff for the characters’ lengthy relationship, as well as a new jumping off point and cliffhanger. If you’re familiar with Goodkind, you know his style by now and this is definitely that. I’m not crazy about the dude doing the reading, but I also literally just finished listening to Wizard’s First Rule and that dude was pretty awesome so, I’d say if you’re familiar with the Sword of Truth series, it’s a great listen. If not go back to Wizard’s First Rule. Don’t be using your credits to start this late in a series.

Left wanting so much more... in a good way.

Terry Gooding left the best cliff hanger, making me say things aloud in my car and carrying on the story in my head.
