When Richard Cypher's odyssey began nobody could have imagined where his adventure would lead. Overcoming personal tragedy and becoming the Seeker, wielder of the magical Sword of Truth, Richard defeated the megalomaniacal wizard Darken Rahl and fell in love with Kahlan Amnell, who, as the Mother Confessor, wields considerable magic in her own right and presides over the Midlands, dealing justice in disputes both large and small throughout her land.

In Stone of Tears, Richard and Kahlan fought separate battles against Rahl's lingering evil. Richard had to learn to focus his magical gift in order to fend off the deadly Sisters of the Dark, who sought to destroy him, as Kahlan led an army against a new threat, the Imperial Order. Neither Richard nor Kahlan knew of the other's travails, though both defeated their foes, whose masters were bent on destroying the veil that separates the realm of the dead from the land of the living.

Now Richard and Kahlan's struggles continue, against a new and equally dire foe. The Blood of the Fold, a group of fanatical anti-magic zealots, have joined the forces thwarted by Richard and Kahlan. They are the unwitting pawns of a sorcerous evil from the Old World, a realm that has been magically sealed for thousands of years. Richard, Kahlan, and their allies now face the combined might of two worlds – the old and the new. This stunning confrontation threatens an armageddon of unimaginable proportions unless Richard and Kahlan can believe in the power of their love and their faith in the Truth.

Blood of the Fold is one of the best books of The Sword of Truth saga. It's good fantasy entertainment for adults. The story of Blood of the Fold is quite interesting and the characters are also interesting. I liked the story very much. It was nice to read more about Richard, Kahlan and their friends. If you've read the previous books and liked them, you should read Blood of the Fold.
