In a world as rich an real as our own, Richard Rahl and Kahlan Amnell stand against the ancient forces which besiege the New World--forces so terrible that when they last threatened, they could only be withstood by sealing of the Old world from whence they came. Now the barrier has been breached, and the New World is again beset by their evil power.
War and treachery plague the world, and only Richard and Ahlan can save it from an Armageddon of unimaginable savagery and destruction.
""Goodkind delivers a rousing, original, and rewarding story.""--Marion Zimmer Bradley
