The Pillars of Creation (Sword of Truth Series #7) by Terry Goodkind

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.

The problem with this book and why so many people are disappointed with it is because Faith of the Fallen was so amazingly good and truly epic that any other book that comes after is going to be held to that standard and ultimately going to fall short. This book is a neccessary evil in the series and truly is the balance to the last book. It really makes me wonder if he did it on purpose this way, I honestly wouldn't be surprised. Introducing a whole new set of characters after the last book was a gutsy move and after reading pillars It's easy to see that this story was neccessary to be told in order to build up the rest of the series. I admit that this one was a slow read for me because lets face it after faith ...yea...this was slow going, BUT im glad that I pushed through and read it because the ending was worth it although it took awhile to get there.

I was pleased the way Mr. Goodkind found new characters and new twists to keep the storyline fresh and interesting. The story within a story is well done and well written; although not very well edited. I have been very disappointed in the last 3 books with the misspelled words, bad punctuation and grammatical mistakes. It makes it quite difficult sometimes to follow the thought/s of the characters when words are not used to properly convey the the story. That being said - I would (and have) highly recommend this series!

I have really enjoyed reading this series. It has adventure, thrill, excitement, romance, political and moral lessons, drama ... a little of everything. The characters are developed extremely well and are multi-faceted. The storyline is original, exciting, and very interesting. Quotes and lessons from this series are very thought provoking and pertain to all times. The only con to the series is these books could have used more editing as they get somewhat wordy and repetitive - each book has many sections that explain what happened in previous books - again. I found myself skimming past those paragraphs and pages. Overall, they are very well written, and I find myself easily drawn into their world.

Looking over prior user reviews, it strikes one that this book's naysayers have either: 1-generic, unsupported complaints of dullness or faulty logic, or 2-so much of a lack of imagination that they can't stand a book that doesn't solely focus on the series' two main protagonists. The truth is that this tale has everything that makes for a rousing fantasy adventure. An interesting spin on the typical hero's quest, constant looming danger and the threat of imminent death, a likable, sympathetic, yet real-enough-to-sometimes-get-on-your-nerves protagonist, and some truly foul villainy. Now I will grant that after spending so long focusing strictly on Richard and Kahlan, it could seem a bit awkward to so suddenly and drastically shift gears. One could argue that this book would have made more sense had it been placed earlier in the series, and not so far removed from the first introduction of one of Richard's siblings. On the other hand, I for one had been waiting in rapt anticipation to see if Mr. Goodkind would see fit to include more of Darken Rahl's unwanted offspring, and so approached this tale as something of a breath of fresh air. I mean seriously, if someone has enjoyed the series enough to continue reading it up to this point, clearly the most logical response is to have an utter lapse in reasoning and lose all faith in the author, refusing to believe that he might actually know what he's doing, right? (/sarcasm) Anyway, Pillars of Creation is fully capable of standing on it's own merit, introduces a fun new character into the series roster, and has left me simply itching to dig into book 8 as soon as possible.
