Overview

From the far reaches of the D'Haran Empire, Bishop Hannis Arc and the ancient Emperor Sulachan lead a vast horde of Shun-Tuk and other depraved "half-people" into the Empire's heart, raising an army of the dead in order to threaten the world of the living. Meanwhile, far from home, Richard Rahl and Kahlan Amnell must defend themselves and their followers from a series of terrifying threats, despite a magical sickness that depletes their strength and which, if not cured, will take their lives...sooner rather than later.

"Richard saw the point of a sword blade sticking out from between the man’s shoulder blades. He spun back toward Richard after throwing the woman out of the opening, ready to attack. It seemed impossible, but the man looked unaffected by the blade that had impaled him through the chest.

It was then, in the weak light from the fire pit off to the side, that Richard got his first good look at the killer.

Three knives were buried up to their brass cross-guards in the man’s chest. Only the handles were showing. Richard saw, too, the broken end of a sword blade jutting out from the center of the man’s chest. The point of that same blade stuck out from the man’s back.

Richard recognized the knife handles. All three were the style carried by the men of the First File.

He looked from those blades that should have killed the big man, up into his face. That was when he realized the true horror of the situation, and the reason for the unbearable stench of death."

From Terry Goodkind, author of the Sword of Truth series, comes a sweeping new novel of Richard Rahl, Kahlan Amnell, and their world.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Heroic Seeker Richard Rahl and his beloved Mother Confessor wife Kahlan Amnell continue their adventures in this Sword of Truth epic episode. A worthy sequel to The Third Kingdom; bound, like its predecessor, to be a bestseller.

Library Journal
08/01/2014
Richard Rahl and Kahlan Amnell must protect their followers from a magical plague while Hannis Arc and Emperor Sulachan send an army of the dead against them. This is the 14th book in the series, and the third in the subset of titles focusing on Richard and Kahlan (after The Third Kingdom). [See Prepub Alert, 2/24/14.]

Read an Excerpt

“At a dead run, breaking through into an open area of the forest with little ground cover among maple and birch trees, they abruptly ran up on a knot of half–naked people smeared with white ash, all hunched over around something on the ground.

They were Shun–tuk.

In the weak, early dawn light the Shun–tuk looked like ghosts. All had eye sockets painted with a black, greasy substance. Wide grins of teeth drawn on their faces completed the look, making them resemble skulls. Most of their heads were shaved, but some had a knot of hair remaining at the top that was tied up with strings of beads and bones to keep it standing up straight so that it resembled a fountain of hair.

Some of the men turned from their prey to look up in surprise as Richard bounded over a boulder and leaped in at them, suddenly screaming in rage, his sword held high in both fists.

In that frozen instant, Kahlan saw that the startled faces were dripping with blood.

The Shun–tuk had knives, but they remained in their sheaths.

Instead, they used only their teeth.”
