Baker & Taylor
With the world on the brink of total chaos and the people on the verge of savagery, Richard Rahl confronts his own guilt over the situation and struggles to deal with the loss of the one person he loves.

McMillan Palgrave

The climactic final novel of the #1 New York Times bestselling Sword of Truth

Blackwell North Amer

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.

& Taylor

I was pleased to see how Goodkind wrapped things up...or more so, open up possibilities. The ending concept was fascinating and I thought it was an interesting idea of how things comes to be. It took me over six years to finish this book, but am I ever so glad to have finished it and not for completion reasons, rather by the end I was feeling the same excitement as I first did with the first few SoT novels. Now I shall move on with the other two books, but Goodkind.....I am hoping that I will not later be of the mind that maybe this book, should have been the ultimate conclusion to the story.

This is a very long series, but the world is so intricate, and the cast of characters so compelling that you can't help but read them all.

A fitting conclusion to the Sword of Truth series. It was nice to see some of the characters from earlier books pop up. Lots of action, as always.
