Terry Goodkind author of the enormously popular Sword of Truth novels, has forged perhaps his best novel yet in Faith of the Fallen, pitting Richard Rahl and Kahlan Amnell against threats to the freedom of the world that will take them to opposite ends of the world to defeat the forces of chaos and anarchy.

Emperor Jagang is rising once again in the Old World and Richard must face him, on his own turf. Richard heads into the Old World with Cara, the Mord-Sith, while his beloved Kahlan remains behind. Unwilling to heed an ancient prophecy, Kahlan raises an army and goes into battle against forces threatening armed insurrection in the Midlands.

Separated and fighting for their lives, Richard and Kahlan will be tested to the utmost.

Review:

Fantasy series fans may argue over the relative merits of Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth, George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire, and Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time, but in a world of middle books that go nowhere and endless waits between episodes, Goodkind is certainly still serving up some of the best fantasy on today's menu.

The Seeker of Truth and his Mother Confessor sweetie are both looking a little worse for the wear after their chime-hunt in Soul of the Fire. To top that off, Lord Rahl finds himself a reluctant prophet with the vision that their cause, the fight for freedom against the Imperial Order, is essentially sunk. (Chalk that up to part of the Wizard's First Rule: people really are stupid.) The two lovers soon find themselves separated, Richard off to the Old World thanks to treacherous Sister of the Dark Nicci, and Kahlan left behind, forced to betray Richard and his prophecy by raising an army to fend off the approaching armies of Emperor Jagang.

Whether it's fair or not, Goodkind will likely get beaten up a bit for visiting the trough once too often, à la Jordan. But fear not: Faith of the Fallen does progress at a good clip, and its conclusion--while by no means a final payout--should satisfy. --Paul Hughes

From the Inside Flap:

New York Times bestselling author Terry Goodkind returns to tell the newest tale of The Sword of Truth, throwing Seeker Richard Rahl and Mother Confessor Kahlan Amnell to the opposite ends of the world in their struggle against the relentless and monolithic forces of the Imperial Order.

When a Sister of the Dark captures Richard, he makes a desperate sacrifice to ensure that his beloved Kahlan remains free. Taken deep into the Old World and forced to help build a new Palace of the Prophets, he is determined to remain defiant even in the heart of darkness.

Left behind and unwilling to abandon the cause of the Midlands, Kahlan violates prophecy and breaks her last pledge to Richard to raise an army against the advancing hordes of the Imperial Order. Finally she will come face to face with the force of terror sweeping her land -- the army of the mad dreamwalker, Emperor Jagang.

Separated and fighting for their lives, Richard and Kahlan will be pushed to the limits of their endurance and tested in their love for one another. Terry Goodkind spins a tale of love and loss sure to enthrall readers around the world.
