Book Description

Nov. 13 2007 Sword of Truth Series (Book 11)
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.

Review

"Makes an indelible impact." --Publishers Weekly on Faith of the Fallen
 
"Few writers have Goodkind's power of creation…a phenomenal piece of imaginative writing, exhaustive in its scope and riveting in its detail." --Publishing News on Temple of the Winds
 
"Highly recommended." --San Diego Union Tribune on Temple of the Winds
 
"Goodkind's greatest triumph: the ability to introduce immediately identifiable characters. His heroes, like us, are not perfect. Instead, each is flawed in ways that strengthen, rather than weaken their impact. You'll find no two-dimensional oafs here. In fact, at times you'll think you're looking at your own reflection." --SFX on Blood of the Fold
--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

1.0 out of 5 stars Finally, an ending, however terrible.... Dec 7 2008
Format:Hardcover
It seems that the bread and butter of the fantasy genre these days are terribly long-winded series of very little content. In this regard I think primarily of the Wheel of Time, but Goodkind's effort is not far behind. Don't get me wrong: the first books of this series were superlative -- I was hooked from the first words of Wizard's First Rule, and it only got better until the series reached it's most thrilling point with Temple of the Winds. Unfortunately, the excitement nearly plummeted after that, with The Pillars of Creation being by far the worst of any of the volumes; and because it featured so little of Kahlan and Richard, it could easily have been taken out of the series altogether with nothing lost. Basically, books 5-12 were terrible -- a grossly over-hyped waste of time and trees. Confessor dragged on and on for hundreds of pages with very little content, and the staple of Goodkind's narrative (i.e. Ayn Rand's parroted objectivist philosophy) was here in spades, especially in Richard's final monologue. And what was with the whole anti-church jab at the very end? I had suspected all along that Goodkind had had a bad Catholic upbringing or something..... My advice would be to read volumes 1-4 and hen just stop. It will be a lot less painful that way.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so much closure, but happy it's over Jan. 29 2009
By David Are TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It's a paint by numbers. If you've read at least the Chainfire series you know what's going to happen, I was only surprised once by this book. The rest I could smell books away, sigh.

I'd say if you've read all the previous ones so far, get this for closure and afterwards, please join me in saying..

WHY DO YOU KEEP REPEATING THE WORDS "THE MEANING OF LIFE"
Holy mother of moses! He must say it two hundred and sixteen times! I GOT IT THE FIRST TIME! "everyones life is sacred" oye! Whenever I read those parts I just wanted to rip the book in half because he repeats and repeats!
Rawr!
Horrible ending, but I won't ruin it for you :)

2.0 out of 5 stars Utter Garbage April 10 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I believe the people who rated Confessor with 4 or 5 stars must have been reffering to some other novel, surely not this trainwreck. Honestly I am so disappointed in not only the past 6 books, but the concluding book lacks everything you would hope for in a series closer.

**Spoilers Ahead*************************************************

I found myself (as I usually do) flipping forward about 10 pages at a time when Richard decides to go off on one of his rants. Goodness, I had no idea a kid from the woodlands would be able to preach as well as him with no formal training and little experience, not to mention he is so repetitive. Either way the short comings of the final book are anything but small. Remember our first wizard Zedd? Yes we all love Zedd, well in this book he is useless, continually he gets his butt kicked by Six and really does absolutely nothing productive. He seems more like Richards sidekick whom has nothing productive to say then a main character.

The book really doesn't get going until half way through and then everything is rushed. All the characters from the past make a one or two page appearance, we hear how our hero (who can do no wrong) has touched there lives for the better in some way or another, they kill someone offer their praise and move on.

And of course Terry needed to include "Pristinely gifted" into a few pages and if I hear "Ghosty Gobblies" one more time I will throw this laptop through the window. Oh and he just couldn't go one freakin book without mentioning that stupid goat Betty, how is this goat still alive, bleating and showing up everywhere even after Jennson is cptured by Jagang.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book Slightly Dissapointing Ending May 17 2010
Format:Hardcover
Alright, i know that you all want to know the facts, and only the facts about THIS book and only this book, but i have to include some insight from prior novels (no spoilers) The book itself was good, as were all the others in the series. The ending was not quite what i was expecting, so that in itself was a bit of a disappointment, but i suppose in the end it was a very... "Richard" ending. Having your cake and eating it too. BUT. (And it's a big but) This novel makes up for itself just by what has come before it, and the message that it, and all others carry. Some people don't like it because it can be preachy (and im the first to admit that that normally isn't my kind of thing) HOWEVER it's a very worthwhile message, and one that it seems a lot of people have forgotten. It's also never been so much about the story as it has been about the message, and the characters. The characters drive the story, and are the realist i have ever encountered. Through the series you really get to feel that they are alive, and this gave a fairly good closure to most of them. I actually cried when people died, and it takes a true story teller to accomplish such a feat. Anyway, the ending mayhap was not perfect, but sometimes there IS no perfect ending that everyone can love. Some people just wont understand it, and wont like it, and that's ok. Certainly worth a read, and i recommend this series to everyone i possibly can. Now of course there seem to be three more novels coming, so perhaps this is NOT the true end. We will see.
