I was looking forward to continuing the journey of Kahlan and Richard, so was incredibly disappointed to find them missing from this edition. It is the first book of the series where I have skipped most of text and gone straight to the ending..
Waste of time, money and above all not critical to the overall story. Give it a miss.

About the author (2001)

Terry Goodkind is a #1 New York Times bestselling author. His books include the eleven-volume Sword of Truth series, beginning with Wizard's First Rule, the basis for the television show Legend of the Seeker. Goodkind was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, where he also attended art school. Alongside a career in wildlife art, he has also been a cabinetmaker and a violin maker, and he has done restoration work on rare and exotic artifacts from around the world -- each with its own story to tell, he says. While continuing to maintain the northeastern home he built with his own hands, in recent years he and his wife Jeri have created a second home in the desert Southwest, where he now spends the majority of his time.
