Book 7: Pillars of Creation

Sequel to the New York Times bestselling Faith of the Fallen

New York Times bestselling author Terry Goodkind has created his most lavish adventure yet. Tormented her entire life by inhuman voices, a young woman named Lauren 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.

With winter descending and the paralyzing dread of an army of annihilation occupying their homeland, Richard Rahl and his wife Kahlan 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.

Meanwhile, Lauren finds herself drawn into the center of a struggle for conquest and revenge. Worse yet, she finds her will seized by 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 must stop the relentless, unearthly threat which has come 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.

Discover breathtaking adventure and true nobility of spirit. Find out why millions of readers the world over have elevated Terry Goodkind to the ranks of legend.

Book 8: Naked Empire

Beginning with Wizard's First Rule and continuing with six subsequent fantasy masterpieces, Terry Goodkind has thrilled and awed millions of readers worldwide. Now Goodkind returns with a broad-canvas adventure of epic intrigue, violent conflict, and terrifying peril for the beautiful Kahlan Amnell and her husband, the heroic Richard Rahl, the Sword of Truth.

Richard Rahl has been poisoned. Saving an empire from annihilation is the price of the antidote. With the shadow of death looming near, the empire crumbling before the invading hordes, and time running out, Richard is offered not only his own life but the salvation of a people, in exchange for delivering his wife, Kahlan, into bondage to the enemy.

Book 9: Chainfire

With Wizard's First Rule and seven subsequent masterpieces, Terry Goodkind has thrilled readers worldwide with the unique sweep of his storytelling. Now Goodkind returns with a new 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.

    The best series I've read in this Genre

    Loved the story and characters so much that when I finished the last book of the series I wanted to go back to the first book and start all over again. The charactors are like old friends. You really don't want to put the book down. The story and charactors grab you and keep you entertained.

    Terry Goodkind's Inspiring Series Continues to Thrill

    Do not be intimidated by the length of these novels; Goodkind fills each page with action, adventure, and excitement. This installment of the series is truly captivating and and excellent follow-up to one of the greatest books I've ever read, "Faith of the Fallen." Goodkind has a way with showing his characters struggle through the darkest hours of their lives, only to triumph at the end. Even though some of the content can be very depressing, the fact that these characters overcome all and rise up to live life for themselves is a very inspiring message for readers to take away. In a world where we see very little good happening, it is nice to be escape into the lives of the characters Richard and Kahlan, who risk everything to better the world. Their story is touching and hopeful, making this series one of the best I've ever read.

    Terry Where Are You?

    Terry started out so strong we couldn't wait for his books to come out. Now that we've gotten into the last trilogy of books, we can't wait for them to be over. His paragraphs are made up of lists of redundancy and he will talk a subject so repetitively you want to shoot your foot just so you have a reason to drop the book. Please finish up your contract so we don't have to suffer further to continue being a fan.

    If you've read the others then make sure to get these too!

    After reading the first book I was hooked in this series and bought all the other ones to complete it. I'm so happy I did! This series has been the best I've read in so long and I love when books have more than two or three in a series to keep the stories and characters you love going. Some content is a bit graphic and yes, at times depressing, but that's how real life is too and Goodkind does a great job bringing the world of Richard and his epic love, Kahlan to life. Pillars of Creation is more about Richard's half-sister Jennsen but it was still a good read with some interesting info to the world they all live in and how everything is connected. Don't stop at book 6, keep going! It's worth the time if you loved the others!

    Love It

    Loved reading these books. It takes you and makes you feel what Richard and Kahlan feeling. I really enjoyed Chainfire. Everyone forgets Kahlan and Richard struggles to find his true love. Wonderful series of books.

    Review of The Sword of Truth / Set III

    Bought these as a gift for my son, age 27. He has read the previous books, 1 thru 6. He says he really enjoys this serious, as it carries as an on going story and is written very well. It is valour, glory, love and the times of knight hood.

    Impotent

    The first war wizard in 3000 years is impotent. It's very annoying how the author recaps events that has happened in previous books. Very unlikely that readers who read the latter books havent read the previous series. Unlike Wheel of Time where Robert Jordan makes the series into one seamless story Terry G. has a lot to learn from the real masters of epic fantasy writing. And goodness, what's up with the long winded speeches? Terry G. seems to know only one plot on each of these books and it involves richard or khalan as captives and the story revolves around it. What a bore.

    Very Good

    Pretty similar to the preceding six books, but with a bigger than average character count. I enjoyed these books pretty thoroughly and I recommend these books to you. Read them.
