Confessor (The Sword of Truth #11) - Terry Goodkind 7.58   21

The culminating novel of the Sword of Truth.

Descending into darkness, about to be overwhelmed by evil, those people still free are powerless to stop the coming dawn of a savage new world, while Richard faces the guilt of knowing that he must let it happen. Alone, he must bear the weight of a sin he dare not confess to the one person he loves… and has lost.

Join Richard and Kahlan in the concluding novel of one of the most remarkable and memorable journeys ever written. It started with one rule, and will end with the rule of all rules, the rule unwritten, the rule unspoken since the dawn of history.

When next the sun rises, the world will be forever changed.

Confessor is a bad fantasy book. When I started to read this book, I knew that I wouldn't like it very much, but I read it anyway, because I wanted to see how Terry Goodkind ends his series. The best thing about this book is that it's finally the last book of The Sword of Truth saga. Otherwise this book is quite boring. I can't recommend this book to anybody. In my opinion this book is a waste of time. If you like Goodkind's earlier books, you'll probably hate this book.
