With Wizard's First Rule and seven subsequent masterpieces, Terry Goodkind has thrilled readers worldwide with the unique sweep of his storytelling. Now, in Chainfire, Goodkind returns with a novel of Richard and Kahlan, the beginning of a sequence of three novels that will bring their epic story to its culmination.
After being gravely injured in battle, Richard awakes to discover Kahlan missing. To his disbelief, no one remembers the woman he is frantically trying to find. Worse, no one believes that she really exists, or that he was ever married. Alone as never before, he must find the woman he loves more than life itself....if she is even still alive. If she was ever even real.

    Better than the last two but a really weird ending

    **********. SPOILERS. *********** Shota's rambling about how there's no pattern to how the blood beast attacks was mind numbing... How are the sisters of the dark able to use their powers in the People's Palace? Don't make sense broham..

    After returning to this beloved series after almost a decade, it's a shame to realise just how terrible the author is. Repetitive, dull, and lazy writing drivel on for over 24 hours of stretched out story. An ode to Ayn Rand, this book is as obnoxious as Ayn herself. Even the narrator seems bored to tears.

  • Alan Swanson

    I've so enjoyed revisiting this series once again.

    overall an entertaining epic story that drags you in but too many parts wallow in mind-numbing detail.

  • Susan Tortorici

    Terry Goodkind touches the real feelings in us all and spellbinds us with twists and turns that leave you breathless. Excellent

  • Mark Pope

    Wonderful. Fully developed characters, good storyline. Classic.

  • Shannon Lowry

    I didn't complete this book for I have come under the impression that Goodkind is milking the series for all the money he can make off it. Details are explained over and over again in exhaustive succession. It would also seem that the main character only encounters idiots who need morals and concepts explained in exruciating detail that a 16 year old would get. I think it is such a shame that this series had to go down hill. Books 1-4 and 6 were all very worth reading. Book five is asinine but it's necessary for book six. Seven is okay. Naked Empire and Chainfire are horrible.

    Goodkind's novels are always long and drawn out. This one is the same but has more excitement and action than was present in his past few books. I did enjoy Chainfire and will read the sequel as well. I did have two complaints. The narrator frequently uses a distracting sing-song style with odd emphasis on inappropriate words. I also felt that the novel ended abrubtly with no resolution of the conflict. Perhaps the book should have been longer?

  • Anonymous

    another bad book in this long drawn out saga of endless preaching and repeating of plot. The series should have stopped after the 3rd book. Pages (or CDs) of the same things being said over and over again. This 22disc book could work much better in about 4 or 5 discs. Too much of the preaching that this series has come to focus on instead of adventure and actual story.
