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 a surprise attack, Richard Rahl awakes to discover his beloved Kahlan missing. To his disbelief, no one remembers the woman he is frantically trying to find. Worse, not even his closest friends believe that she really exists, or that he was ever married.
Alone as never before, Richard must find the woman he loves more than life itself... if she is still alive. If she was ever even real.

These last 3 books were a waste of time. What could have been written in one was strewn across these 3! He should have just taken those last few years on focused on one book and made an awesome ending, but no. Instead he wasted many hours of people lives as they had to read through these awful books to have closure on the series!

It's simply amazing (or perhaps I should say shocking) how bad Terry Goodkind's new books have become after Faith of the Fallen. Chainfire is almost as boring and preaching as the two previous books, which is a bad thing. It's a shame that the quality of this series has dropped so low. This series used to be interesting and entertaining, but now it's just boring.
