There is still that inner steel that was the core of Kahlan’s strength goodkidn I hope that she can somehow recover more of that inner strength that made her the Mother Confessor and a force to be reckoned with independent of Richard Chainfire was an entertaining read but it most importantly, it sets up Phantom and Confessor beautifully.
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.
Chainfire – Wikipedia
giodkind He just doesn’t seem to understand the entire concept of pacing, and so the pacing in this book is just attrocious. Everyone thinks he’s nuts.
This is not how people talk to each other. The book does not wrap the story – this volume and the next two form a sort of trilogy within the wider series. The idea of magic destroying memory, however, and also the idea of contaminating magic, those are very exciting possibilities. A Richard and Kahlan Novel. Nicci and Cara both attribute Richard’s memory of Kahlan to dreams and delusions brought on by his injury and possibly an unintended effect of the Subtractive Magic used in healing Richard.
The Omen Machine Book More than that, however, no one around him seems to remember her. This page was last edited on 28 Marchat Goodkind did an excellent job at portraying Richard’s frustration at being unable to convince anyone of Kahlan’s existence, his worry over her disappearance, and his self-doubt as he found no evidence to support his memories.
I still didn’t see it – what led him to his unshakable certainty that what he was saying was, in fact, the truth. I can’t decide if this is clever or just reaching.
Not my favorite, yet not the worst in the series. We know he’s not, that it’s everyone else that has forgott Chainfire pages by Terry Goodkind. It is explained in the novel as follows: While the prophecy of Richard lives on, those around him are insistent he stay and lead the D’Hara’s into battle. I don’t think I’d get through them if I had to will my eyes to continue relaying the derivative, uninspired words on the page to my brain instead of just tuning out and doing something else as the poor voice actor drones on and on, trying to intone the author’s awkward phrases with any sense of realism.
She also warns Richard of a “blood beast” conjured by several wizards and Sisters of the Dark, under the orders of Jagang. He must continue to serve the D’Haran empire while not getting caught up in a woman that never “existed”.
Chainfire: Chainfire Trilogy Part 1
chaunfire Richard does find evidence that convinces his companions that Kahlan is real and discovers how she could have been erased from everyone’s memories. This results in some characteristically tedious, repetitive, unrealistic, interminable, eyeroll-inducing exchanges between R The following review is copied and pasted from my blog: While he is searching for Kahlan, the D’Haran forces are facing overwhelming odds against the Imperial Order in the larger battle.
Goodkind’s compelling prose weaves a magic spell over readers. At first, I was confused about why a book would be considered a part of two series but after reading it I completely understand. I’m not a born writer, but I have the imagination and will to keep writing. And as someone else mentioned, he really dosn’t need to recap earlier books so thoroughly as he does.
She is a such busybody. But, I have to say, as a writer myself who loves dialogue, WOW, there was a lot of dialogue in this one. 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.
None of the action or emotion is shown to us as it’s happening. I mean, Nicci freaking ripped a wizard’s still beating heart out of his chest with her bare hands! I do not need 30 of the first 80 pages of this book devoted to telling me what happened in them. While I still find the basic plotline is entertaining and interesting, this series has dragged on for much too long.
We are TOLD that Nathan flipped through these books, with a etrry sense of unease and dread, instead of actually having him do it so taht we could see chajnfire ourselves, and feel the tension and building dread ourselves. Chainfire was the same writing style as the rest of the series, but the mystery was something we hadn’t seen since the opening chapters of Wizard’s First Rule. He sighs, then grabs a flint and steel to do it the old fashioned way.
I’m going to rate this one a notch higher than the previous couple of books in the series. And so a scene that’s meant etrry be an explosive moment of action from our hero is an over-analyzed, excruciatingly over-described mockery of what it was supposed to be.
Sword of Truth 1 – 10 of 16 books. I hope chainfre won’t give him any of yours. A new ‘beast’ which has shown no weaknesses.
No one is going to pick up book 9 of a series without reading at least a few of the eight that came before it. If she was ever even real. I did have my moments of LOVE with this book.
