Summary:

Tormented her entire life by inhuman voices, Jennsen seeks to end her intolerable agony. She at last discovers a way to silence the voices. For everyone else, the torment is about to begin. Richard Rahl and his wife, Kahlan, have been reunited after their long separation, but with winter descending and the paralyzing dread of an army of annihilation occupying their homeland, they must venture deep into a strange and desolate land. Their quest turns to terror when they find themselves the helpless prey of a tireless hunter. Exploited by those intent on domination, Jennsen finds herself drawn into the center of a violent struggle for conquest and revenge. Worse yet, she finds her will seized by dark forces more abhorrent than anything she ever envisioned. Only then does she come to realize that the voices were real. Staggered by loss and increasingly isolated, Richard and Kahlan desperately struggle to survive. But if they are to live, they must stop the relentless, unearthly threat that comes out of the darkest night of the human soul. To do so, Richard will be called upon to face the demons stalking among the Pillars of Creation.

    I love this series but was really disappointed with this particular novel. The author devoted nearly the entire book to new characters and we don't even see Richard, Kalan to the last couple chapters. I understand the need to develop backstory, but the particular novel felt poorly paced and disjointed from the series.

    Easily the worst of the series. The blatant flip flopping of good and evil between Richards siblings is extremely repetitive and onerous. Especially constantly reminding you how easily Jensen believes anything anyone tells her. And ending with Richard popping up saying oh hey I’m not evil they are, whoops! Come on Terry. I hope to see better from you in the nicci chronicles. Don’t try and pull another legend of the seeker on us.

    The book was great. Just like all the others in the series it starts slow and builds throughout. I don't very much like this narrator, but he's far from the worst of all the different people they've had narrate this series.
