Book Description

July 19 2011 Sword of Truth Series (Book 3)
In a fantasy world as rich and real as our own, Richard Rahl and Kahlan Amnell stand against the ancient forces which besiege the New World - forces so terrible that when last they threatened, they could only be withstood by sealing off the Old World from whence they came. Now the barrier has been breached, and the New World is again beset by their evil power. War, monsters, and treachery plague the world, and only Richard and Kahlan can save it from an armageddon of unimaginable savagery and destruction. Terry Goodkind, author of the brilliant fantasy bestsellers of the Sword of Truth series, has created his most masterful epic yet, a sumptuous feast of magic and excitement replete with the wonders of his unique fantasy vision.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

After unwittingly destroying the magical wards that had sealed off the Old World from the New for 3000 years, the war wizard Richard Cypher discovers that he has inadvertently created a gate through which the evil Keeper, Emperor Jagang, and his minions can enter the land. Separated from his beloved, the former Mother Confessor Kahlan Amnell, who is in hiding to avoid being executed by the people she once served, Richard must now accept the power of his father, Darken Rahl, and use all of his magical abilities to defeat Jagang, to save Kahlan and to close the gate. As in the two previous novels of The Sword of Truth fantasy cycle (Stone of Tears, etc.), Goodkind builds an intricate plot teeming with violence, treachery and intrigue. Newcomers to the series may find it a challenge to get up to speed, but once they do, they?as well as Goodkind's large, loyal readership?will delight in a complex epic fantasy that crackles with vigor and magical derring-do. Author tour.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good- not my favourite Nov. 12 2013
By Maple
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
May be one of my least favourite, but I did still enjoy it and the series. I am almost halfway through the series for the second time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series overall! Nov. 2 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an ambitious series that is up there with Game of Thrones except with a lot more books. The only complaint I would have is that it is too wordy and descriptive. If you like all kinds of description to give you an in depth view of everything from clothing to meals then this is for you. I personally like them to get on with the action, but overall I did indeed love the book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Repetitive, Repetitive, Repetitive,....... Nov. 2 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I thought the first two books were excellent...and as a frequent reader of series books, I could not WAIT to move on to Book 3. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT. All T.G. does in this book is recap the first two books and the entire history of each person, object, place, etc. EVERY TIME it is mentioned. It was so annoying that I couldn't wait to get through it. I will tell you that I only got into Book 4 about one chapter before I returned it. T.G. started the same stuff as he did in Book 3 with repeting and explaining everything. In addition, the characters in the first two books were detailed as far as we knew them intimately. The third book just showed us glimpses of each character. It was difficult to relate to any of them. Overall, I was very disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick paced, keeps story rolling. Aug. 6 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
While several hundred pages shorter than the first two, BotF maintains the excitement of the series. I gave it four stars because I had difficulty setting it down.
I enjoyed the fast pace of this book. Mr Goodkind wastes no time moving the story on, FROM THE POINT WHERE THE PREVIOUS BOOKS LEFT OFF (other authors could take a lesson from this - no missed events)! I really liked the way Richard has shaken the foundations of the Midlands and D'Hara. Jagang is one bad apple! He scared me more than Darken Rahl ever did. I enjoyed watching Gratch grow up; it helps express the sense of time passing. I also enjoyed all the near misses when the main characters were physically close but unaware of it. COMMUNICATIONS AND INTELLIGENCE IS THE KEY TO VICTORY, PERIOD.
What I don't like is the way Richard (and everyone else) has ignored the Westlands. There's no way Richard would blow off his homeland. Surely Jagang, the Sisters of the Dark, the Keeper, or somebody has been lurking there?.. I was also disapponted in the Lord General of the Blood of the Fold. He seemed too incompetent (crazy) to be the top dog, so what was keeping them together, and so powerful? His having the gift was a wonderful twist.
Read this series, or I'll slap a Rada Han on you. Hey, that sounds like a wrestling move!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great story Jan. 26 2001
Format:Audio Cassette
First of all, I don't understand all the harsh reviews of Terry Goodkind's SoT series. Perhaps the themes in his books have appeared in other stories, but that's true of every author. Any fantasy author who has written about magic, wizards, beautiful women, elves, dwarves, dragons, swords, quests, traveling, a great evil foe, etc. has copied that theme from someone else. Many reviewers compare these stories to Robert Jordan's. They may have similarities, but the biggest difference is that Goodkind's books are INTERESTING. If Robert Jordan came up with these themes first (which he didn't), he sure didn't know what to do with them. I'm glad that Goodkind did. It takes Jordan a whole book just to get his characters to finish breakfast.
Others have recommended Terry Brooks over Terry Goodkind while in the same breath complaining that Goodkind copied the themes in his books. Did any of you ever read the Sword of Shannara? The first 100+ pages were a rip-off of The Fellowship of the Ring.
One reviewer, who ranked this book with ONE STAR wrote, "The evil emperor simply wants to control the world, wow...that's so amazing. We have no idea why he wants to control the world or how he got in a position to do that". If this reader had actually bothered to read the words INSIDE the book, he/she would know that why Jagang wanted to rule and also why he has the power he does. If you're going to rank a book as ONE at least read it. If you can't understand it, that's your problem, not the book's.
My last tirade is concerning the repetition others have complained about. He does fill you in on things you might have forgotten from previous books, but it is not overdone in the least.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Right Recipe for Fantasy Jan. 2 1998
By A Customer
Goodkind fans are once again treated to an entertaining story from the author of "Wizard's First Rule". Like the second book in the Sword of Truth series, "Blood of the Fold" picks up where the previous book leaves off and delivers the same successful mix of action, character development, intrigue, surprise, and insight into who we are and what we value.
Probably the best thing to say about this book is it's really, REALLY as good as the first two in the series. While one might be inclined to criticise Goodkind for seemingly copying from Robert Jordon, I feel compelled to point out that while I RAVED about "Wheel of Time" I also have completely given up on the series. I can't stay interested anymore - I don't really care what happens to Rand.
You won't find yourself wading through the mud in the Sword of Truth series because the events, the action, and the mystery just keep unfolding! And it looks as though Goodkind has the skill to continue to spin stories off of Sword of Truth with as much entertainment as "Wizard's First Rule". Yes, this book belongs right up there on the shelf with Jordon's "Wheel of Time" and Donaldson's "Lord Foul's Bane" and Eddings' "Belgariad/Pawn" and Wiliams' "Dragonbone Chair" BUT WAIT, SURPRISE, it also shares the top shelf with the first TWO books already penned in the Sword of Truth World!
Hey fantasy fans - enjoy! This series is one to read. It delivers. You won't be bored!
