Description

Bestselling author Terry Goodkind's epic Sword of Truth series continues with the next stunning installment, Phantom.

On the day she awoke remembering nothing but her name, Kahlan Amnell became the most dangerous woman alive. For everyone else, that was the day that the world began to end.

As her husband, Richard, desperately searches for his beloved, whom only he remembers, he knows that if she doesn't soon discover who she really is, she will unwittingly become the instrument that will unleash annihilation. But Kahlan learns that if she ever were to unlock the truth of her lost identity, then evil itself would finally possess her, body and soul.

If she is to survive in a murky world of deception and betrayal, where life is not only cheap but fleeting, Kahlan must find out why she is such a central figure in the war-torn world swirling around her. What she uncovers are secrets darker than she could ever have imagined.

Chainfire Trilogy

The Chainfire Trilogy is probably my favorite "grouping" of books in the SoT series, other individual books i like more but as a set these are right up there, giving long standing characters other means to accomplish there goals than the ones they have been doing before allowing them to grow brings so much life to them all. Plus in the 3rd book we get to see Richard be a bad ass athlete . Sam Tsoutsouvas gives another great performance, he is by far one of the best to read the SoT series.

Phantom Review

Finally finished reading Phantom. This book was the dullest of the series, it seemed like TG dragged it out too long, especially with Kahlan's storyline. Now off to finish the series with Confessor. Hopefully this one will be as good as the beginning of the series.

Dear Spirits!

OK, with hands fisted at my sides I'm going to finish this series, heehee! Anyway, this is not really a bad book but I'm getting to think this author has a real problem with women and I will be happy to be done with all the violence against them. Other than that, we're moving toward the end I think... some good, some not so much but all in all I have to say I have been entertained. I liked this reader too, he's from the very frst book I think.

When Will it End?

Would you try another book from Terry Goodkind and/or Sam Tsoutsouvas?

I'll end up finishing this series, but listening to Phantom feels like I'm just drudging through it to get to see how it all ends.

Would you ever listen to anything by Terry Goodkind again?

As I said, I do want to see how it all ends - I've invested a couple of hundred hours listening to this series.

What three words best describe Sam Tsoutsouvas’s performance?

Average.

Could you see Phantom being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

They tried with this series and when you read TG's remarks about it, you can tell he wasn't thrilled with it.

Any additional comments?

Okay, so I've really enjoyed this series. Really, really enjoyed it. This end trilogy, though, is turning out to be so tiresome. Throughout the books, the characters have been a vehicle for TG to put forth his ideas about free will and the rights of the individual and a story of the atrocities of unchecked evil and how one must fight back against it. So far, this second book of the trilogy is pretty disappointing. There are HOURS where characters are retelling to someone a list of the goriest things TG could think of which go on and on to the point where one is just wishing whichever character was being told would just say, "Look. I get it. They're a bunch of ruthless savages. Geez. Move on, already." There is at least one LONG, LONG, LONG lecture - like an entire chapter - where a poor, ignorant character is enlightened about the evils of faith - any faith - and how those who have faith love to kill those who don't believe as they do. Not to mention, those who have faith are ignorant, stupid, illogical, blind, sheep-like, intolerant, egotistical, condescending, uncharitable, judgmental, misled fools who hate everyone around them and despise life itself. Believe it or not, that's not an exaggeration. The book is SO repetitive and wordy. Where TG could use 10 words, he uses 100. It reminds me of Jordan's Wheel of Time series where there were passages that lasted for 200 pages where literally nothing happened. It's like the author was told, "Okay. We want to end this with a trilogy. I don't care how short that story is, fluff it up to 800 pages so we can divide it into three books." It's like what Peter Jackson did with the Hobbit, but preachy.All in all, I've truly loved this series. It's so disappointing that this one book has turned it into a grind.

Good but...

I always get unabridged versions of my books, however, if ever there was a time for an abridged version the Chainfire Trilogy is it!!! OMG....some sections just go on and on! Don't get me wrong I love these books but why 3 books were needed for the Chainfire piece, I have no idea!! Whew...I'm glad I'm finally done with them!!!

Not a bad story, but way too long and repetitive

What can I say, I really should have read the other reviews and taken a bit more notice. I read the preceding books in the series when they were first released, and I must say and advantage to printed books is that you can skip the bits that are repetitive and dull. I think that the three final books in this series could easily have been compressed into a single story.

Although I have memories of the early books being very good, the final "trilogy" set have been something of a disappointment. The characters are dreadfully one-dimensional, and Richard himself has become unbelievable, overly righteous and at times downright dull. And was it just me, or were all the "bad" characters fat and/or ugly brutes, and the "good" characters slim and attractive intellectuals? Please!

I also found the switch in narrators disconcerting - the narrator who did the first book was better, but by then I was sucked into the "but I just need to see how it ends" trap.

better

I was some what dissappointed with Chainfire, part 1, but this book was a lot better. My only wish is that the narrator would stay the same. I really dont care who, although Jim Bond would be preference, but when you are use to one person, a change in the characters voices can throw you off.

poor narration

This narrator's only way of showing expression is by raising his voice. All characters sound identical. Very disappointing.

always apart

while this book was an improvement on some earlier ones, the preaching does get old. Same plot lines, different details, and Cara now smiles too much.

Love this series

I absolutely couldn't put this series down when I started rewarding years ago. I'm now listening to b them. wonderful writing, very imaginative and adult. Def not Harry Potter. they need to make movies from The Sword of Truth novels. all of them
