Book Description

Sept. 15 1997 Sword Of Truth (Book 4)
On the red moon will come the firestorm...

Wielding the Sword of Truth, Richard Rahl has battled death itself and come to the defense of the D'Haran people. But now the power-mad Emperor Jagang confronts Richard with a swift and inexorable foe: a mystical plague cutting a deadly swath across the land and slaying thousands of innocent victims.

To quench the inferno, he must seek remedy in the wind...

To fight it Richard and his beloved Kahlan Amnell will risk everything to uncover the source of the terrible plague-the magic sealed away for three millennia in the Temple of the Winds.

Lightning will find him on that path...

But when prophecy throws the shadow of betrayal across their mission and threatens to destroy them, Richard must accept the Truth and find a way to pay the price the winds demand...or he and his world will perish.

Product Description

From Library Journal

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars long lead up but a good pay off March 4 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

Like others who have reviewed this book, I have really enjoyed the dynamic and personalities of the Mord-Sith. They are characters with such depth & reality to them.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars good book- little to much lovin' goin' on though June 22 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It is a good book. The war starts- a plague sweeps the land and people are forced to either join with the good guys or get blown away. Very good war fantasy book- it is not as good as Martin but still still good in its own way
Yes there is to much kissing and love, but i really didn't mind that bad if terry would not go into so much detail- i didn't mind the torture detail in the second book but this was to much
but i still think that this is a good book and worth reading

3.0 out of 5 stars Temple of the Winds June 19 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Having read the entire Sword of Truth series, and having enjoyed it, I can say this is my least favorite. I think if Richard grabbed Kahlan once more and dragged her into a corner to kiss her, yet again, I would have thrown the book across the room. The plot was engaging, the characters are some I have grown to care about, but the stolen kisses just got to be tiring, even for a romantic at heart such as I am.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terry Goodkind is awesome Feb. 13 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Terry Goodkind is often compareed to and sometimes accused of ripping off Robert Jordan. However this is not the case... Yes, Goodkind fans will enjoy Jordan's work and Jorda fan's will enjoy Goodkind's work... However Goodkind's work is unique. Temple of the Winds is one of the best books in the Sword of Truth series in my opinion and if you haven't read it, or any of the series I suggest you do so. Obviously you will only appreciate this book for its full value if you have read the books up to it, and continue to read the books that came after it and the few that are yet to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terry Goodkind is back on track! Jan. 19 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Terry Goodkind realigns his readers faith with this stellar sequel in his Sword of Truth series. This Book is more than just a page turner, it immerses you in the lives and dealings of the D'Haran empire and rulers. Unlike ever before, Kahlan and Richard surface as three dimensional people dealing with lust, jealousy, and betrayal. The Mord Sith are portrayed as never before, and touch the reader as only victims of torture can. I highly recommend this book to any fantasy lover.

1.0 out of 5 stars I should simply cut and paste the same review Dec 9 2003
By Leon
Format:Mass Market Paperback
for the first three books, because in my mind, they were the same--why should my review be any different.
Dull. Boring. Ponderous. Tedious. Contrived. Overdone. Simple. Derivative. Should I go on? I know, you Goodkind sychophants and apologists out there will now read this review and give it the old unhelpful label. Ha, that should teach me not to review horrid books involving some of the worst developed and contrived characters I've had the displeasure of getting to know.
Here's a tip: Go to your library and check out George R.R. Martin, or Stephen Erikkson, or Robin Hobb, or David Coe, or John Marco, or LWE, and read those author's books and then decide who writes good fantasy. Until you do, keep reading the sword of truth series and the Shannara series to complete your overrated author sweep

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Story.. Nov. 5 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Another great book from Terry Goodkind. Once again I was held spellbound in the world of Richard and Kahlan not putting the book down for hours. But one thing started to annoy me, Terry seems to repeat past events over and over which I guess makes it so a reader who has not read the first three books will still enjoy Temple Of The Winds seperately, but for those of us who have it gets boring. As I start the 5th book I just hope he repeats himself less...
