From Library Journal:

This is the eighth entry in Goodkind's massive "Sword of Truth" series. While the publisher touts this as a "standalone" novel, don't believe it. New listeners will find the rapid regurgitation of back story and the slew of characters and references incomprehensible if they are not familiar with the preceding volumes. This installment begins as Richard Raul and his wife, Kahlan, journey to the land of D'Hara to continue fighting the evil Emperor Jagang, the Dream Walker. They are accompanied by their friends Jensen, Tom, and Cara and a stupid goat that receives way too much attention from the author. The group is pursued by evil birds and mysterious entities full of dire warnings; they stumble into the land of Bandakar, whose people have been banished there by an evil wizard. While the Wizard's Eight Rule is revealed, it remains untranslated, heralding another long book in our near future. Listeners will be mystified by this one. While the production is adequate, the price is high for a subpar series entry. Read by Jim Bond, this is guardedly recommended for libraries where Goodkind is popular.-Barbara Perkins, formerly with Irving P.L., TX (c) Copyright 2010.
