Firstly, the way that Goodkind continuously writes in that Matrix style, where he goes into tremendous detail describing the swing of a sword or the casting of a spell or running through a wood. Together they find the book called “Chainfire”. But it is not as simple as erasing the memory of everyone directly, as this is merely Subtractive Magic. The disappearance of Kahlan also allows the book to “reinterpret” events the wrong way – sort of like Twilight zone, and then you yank someone out of existence, and there’s a whole bunch of paradoxes, and it’s only one man who notices the difference.

Was he too afraid of Goodkind to speak up and do his damn goodoind All in all, I wish that the main characters had been more supportive of Richard and believe in him–didn’t he save the world eight times before?

Of all the characters, I find Ann most annoying. Fearing for his beloved’s life, Richard desperately tries to find some trace of her and at the same time convince the others that she exists. The last third is when it chaihfire picks up.

Namely, books were a complete waste of text, but Chainfire has some of the magical fun of the early works. Twrry was like a breath of fresh air after reading the previous eight books.


After being gravely injured in battle, Richard awakes to discover Kahlan missing. I’m not a big fan of Kahlan and actually find her quite whiny and annoying, so her absence in this book was a nice break. Goodkind himself he is full of himself. May 02, Kalyn rated it did not like it Recommends it for: When it’s done well and at the right moments, it is very much an enhancement of the scene being chaihfire. Another thing that I don’t like about the Blood Beast is that it never really does anything that’s really trry that threatening.

They require Richard to use his wits and reason to develop a plan that does not rely on emotion, instinct, and gut-triggered magic even though I know that at the climactic moment, it will. People too stupid to comprehend what you’re talking about?

The story had so many unique and fascinating characters especially the secondary ones. Why aren’t they out causing panic?

He is preachy but for some reason his preachiness dosn’t bother me nearly as much as Jordan’s constant male bashing,or three page descriptions of rooms never to be seen again and ponytail tugging.

For this reason, some wizards came up with a workaround, using some energy to warp reality itself or at least human perception of it. None of the action or emotion is shown to us as it’s happening. Richard, Nicci and Cara return to the Wizard’s Keep and, with the information gathered from Tovi and the book “Chainfire”, they finally manage to convince Zedd, Nathan, and Ann of the truth.


The initial books detail the battle against Darken Rahl as he attempts to extend his cruel rule. The Pillars of Creation Sword of Truth. For the spell with the same name: It goes far beyond tense into boring, and then far beyond boring to the point that it’s actually funny how long Goodkind draws it out. Anyway, I’m one book closer to catching up to Goodkind and hopefully not reading another book from him for many years to come or ever again. What angers me even more is your statement about advice in becoming an author: It makes it feel rather boring and long-winded, and like we’re being lectured by the author.

Worry not, nothing romantic but a change nonetheless.

I mean, was there even an editor working on this book? Some elements were also similar to previous plot lines.

The wager for such a bargain is your life. Last pages were chainfie, but the first knock this down to a 3 star read goodkknd me. I won’t mention any spoilers around Kahlan, though. You see what I mean about telling instead of showing? Mar 12, L Phillip Lucas rated it did not like it.

Since he was talking about those particular Sisters of the Dark when he hadn’t before, it pretty obvious they were behind whatever happened to Kahlan.
