A deadly plague sweeps the fantasy world of Goodkind's best-selling series.
Copyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc.
From Kirkus Reviews
Another independently intelligible doorstopper addition to Goodkind's Sword of Truth series (Blood of the Fold, 1996, etc.). This time, sword-wielder and wizard Richard Rahl, his warrior beloved Kahlan, grandfather Zedd, and the rest of the cast are threatened by the Imperial Order and their dream walker, Jagang, who sends a wizard-assassin, Marlin, to kill Richard. Meanwhile, old flame Nadine, befuddled by a witch, shows up intending to marry Richard; close behind comes the healer Drefan, Richard's half- brother. Marlin/Jagang announces gleefully that he's caught Richard in a ``bound fork prophesy,'' a fancy way of saying heads I win, tails you lose. Another one for the fans. -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.See all Product Description

what's new with this book from the rest?
so many innocents die, my goodness, i nearly shed a tear reading some of this, but no...i'm a man...i don't cry *wipes lower eyelid clean*
who's up for some travel through the sliph? the silverish creature is more described in this book, so yeah...interesting.
well, not much really, but the story doesn't need it.
this book is about 200 pages longer and i finished it in a shorter amount of days than the one before it. I was totally hooked that i read it in a span of 23 hrs. over 3 days of the weekend. This is a great book and has a couple grand twists. One failed twist tho is who Richard's brother is, but maybe I'm just clever...Read more ›
In my humble opinion, this novel was by far the most emotional and suspenseful one among the first 4 books.
Chapter 64 gets my prize for the greatest chapter in the series so far.
The book really seems to aim at probing how much the readers can take. Without giving away too much, when you get to about 3/4 of the book, Kahlan's betrayal will take your breath away. Had i not known there are more books in the series, i would have thought that it was the end of Richard's and Kahlan's world as we know it. It marked the biggest test of my trust in the main protagonists of the series. Every new page I read put a new thorn in my heart. However, if you believe in Richard and Kahlan's goodness, you will come to enjoy the book more than anything in the series up to this point.
The only complaint : It took me 5 days to read this one. Maybe i'm just too eager to find out what happens.
Great job Mr. Goodkind!
OK That being said this review is for those of us who have read the thing the whole way through. THere is so much I want to say about this one. I was manipulated, comforted, tricked and most of all freaking heartbroken. Thats that my heart is genuinely broken now because of Terry Goodkinds ... He went to far with the manipulation of the feelings this time. Kahlan was originally the embodyment of what the perfect women would be like. She was perfect in mind body and spirit and the men who read of her immediately loved her and wanted her to materialize for her to be cherished til her dying day. Kahlan was an Icon and symbol of an ideal women for men who want more that your typical materialistic self centered poptart and she was more that a comfort over the years BUT NOW!!!!!!!!! ...
And RIchard!!!! Richard is everything that a women should Should want in a man and still be respected feared even by other men but he really [ticked] me off bad in the book to where I was ready to say to hell with you to for being such a Wimp ... I wanted to kick [him] soo bad for having the ...Read more ›

I like the series, but can't help noting that if I hear the word Subtractive, or Additive again, my head may explode. Read morePublished 4 months ago by John Probe
My one complaint of this book is that for the first 90% of the book is slow. Sometimes painfully slow. It's a cool story and very intriguing but it just drags on and on. Read morePublished 23 months ago by R. Duffy
I find it hard to keep reviewing books in a series as it's hard to rate individual books. I did enjoy this one but to me it's just part of a larger story.Published on Nov. 12 2013 by Maple
The series started out with a lot of potential. I was a big fan of the main character and the development in the Stone of Tears was refreshing. Read morePublished on March 20 2006 by A. Dixon
