The final book in one of the greatest epic adventures of all time: The Sword of Truth, from bestselling fantasy author Terry Goodkind. 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 by lewispike
Parts of this book were, frankly, awful. Particularly at various points where people were ranting about the choices between life and death, good and evil and the like. The first time I didn't mind it, it fit well, but so many characters said basically the same things that it got dull. Fortunately these parts were mercifully short.Other parts of this were compulsive page turner material, with unexpected perils, nice twists, some well written fight scenes and the like.I find I'm undecided about the conclusion. It felt, in part, like he'd suddenly decided not to write another book and so had to squeezed in unexpectedly, but at the same time there was an appropriate and quick ending that wrapped it all up nicely. There's an interesting little slant on justice without mercy waiting to be written about the end of the story too, but so be it.Overall a satisfying conclusion to an above average series. It could have been better, but it was good, and I think the conclusion was at about the right time, so I'm prepared to live with it feeling a bit rushed.
