The Sword of Truth, Terry Goodkind's wonderfully creative, seamless, and stirring epic series, has captivated readers across the globe. Now, this acclaimed storyteller delivers another extraordinary novel set in a richly realized world alive with all the complexity and taut characterization we've come to expect from this master of fantasy.

Richard has been poisoned. Saving an empire from annihilation is the price demanded for 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 life, but the salvation of a people, in exchange for delivering his wife, Kahlan, into bondage to the enemy.

With the stakes higher than life and death, Richard and Kahlan face possibly the most devastating choice they will ever have to make.

The Naked Empire is a truly spellbinding tale which explores the strength of the human spirit and the sacrifices made for love.
