What I liked: the ongoing story at the Palace of the Prophets, with Verna & Warren and Anna & Nathan. Oh, and Millie... Really, that whole storyline was the best part of the book. I also liked some of the interplay of dialog with Richard and his bodyguards. And Gratch has become quite the important player.

What I disliked: the unending apparent need for torture, especially of a sexual nature. I get it—the Sisters of the Dark, Jagang, and Tobias Brogan are depraved and evil, but I would prefer to not wallow in their cesspools. I also don’t care for the way characters with the gift can suddenly, inconveniently not be able to access or use their power, just to add to the dramatic tension or to heighten the danger, or, conversely, can dig to unknown depths after exhausting their power to suddenly have just enough to smite that last foe. There just seem to be too many inconsistencies in using magical power. And just once, could Richard not make the most obviously stupid choice?

Questions I still have: what truly is the sliph? What happened to Zedd and Nathan? How many more books will we have to wade through before Richard and Kahlan are wed?

Vera M. | 37 comments oh gosh those stupid choices. you would think by now he would know better and even through the book he tells himself what he should think about or notice before acting and what does he do? just jumps right in. I get he is written as following his instincts is the best choice in a bunch of bad choices and that his mind gets clouded by this or that but when does he stop just bumbling about getting lucky?
That rant being said I did enjoy this book. I laughed out loud at some parts, yelled at the book at times along with other emotions at the book at parts. I did enjoy the characters and wonder what will happen next and what they will get up to next.
