Seeker of Truth Richard Rahl and Mother Confessor Kahlan Amnell must confront the Chimes, a magical force that they accidentally unleashed, before the Chimes can destroy them and ravage all of D'Hara

McMillan Palgrave

Richard Rahl has traveled far from his roots as a simple woods guide. Emperor of the D'Haran Empire, war wizard, the Seeker of Truth--none of these roles mean as much to him as his newest: husband to his beloved Kahlan Amnell, Mother Confessor of the Midlands.

But their wedding day is the key that unlocks a spell sealed away long ago in a faraway country. Now a deadly power pours forth that threatens to turn the world into a lifeless waste.

Separated from the Sword of Truth and stripped of their magic, Richard and Kahlan must journey across the Midlands to discover a dark secret from the past and a trap that could tear them apart forever. For their fate has become inextricably entwined with that of the Midlands--and there's no place so dangerous as a world without Terry Goodkind's spellbinding Soul of the Fire.

Blackwell North Amer
Richard Cypher, a simple woods guide, never dreamed he would get caught up in magic, war, and dangers so extraordinary that the fate of the entire world would hang on his actions and decisions.
Richard slowly learned to accept his true role, first as the Seeker and the wielder of the Sword of Truth and then as the new Lord Rahl and the war wizard who led the fight against the Keeper and his dark minions.
Richard was faced with an evil even he couldn't stand against - a dread plague loosed by the mad Emperor Jagang. Only by journeying to the Temple of the Winds was Richard able to thwart the plans of Jagang and save his world and the life of his beloved Kahlan.
But when Kahlan summoned the dominion of the chimes to save Richard, unwittingly she loosed arcane powers that now not only threaten those she loves, but are bent on reshaping the world itself into forbidding visions that will forever alter the very nature of life itself.
Richard and Kahlan must now hunt down the chimes, those most mysterious of hunters - the unseen stalkers of souls, the thieves of order - and in so doing plunge headfirst into danger perilous. For there is no place so dangerous as a world without magic.

I found Goodkind's fifth Sword of Truth book a little hard to get into; however, the story had some good twists, and I was happy with the ending. Some doors are opened, while others are closed rather than a cliffhanger-type set up for the next novel. Great read!

"Oh, it was just a bottle I picked up in a market when I was traveling one time. When I saw it, I was immediately taken with the mastery it must have taken to make such a beautiful, graceful piece. After a long negotiation with the peddler, I finally wore him down and purchased it for a exceptionally good price.
"I liked the bottle so well that when I returned, I set it up on that pedestal. It was also a reminder of how. because of my skill at bargaining, I had obtained it at a remarkably good price. I thought it looked nice, there, and it made me proud of myself."

"Well, aren't you the clever one." Ann sniped.

"Yes, very. Not long after, I found a bottle exactly like it for half the price, and that was without haggling. I kept the bottle there on that pedestal to remind myself not to get cocky, just because I was First Wizard."
