I have read the Sword of Truth series up until Chainfire and I love them. Does anyone know if his next bok in the series has come out?

July 18, 2006. It's called Phantom.

Is it just me, or does it seem from the previous book that this one will be the last. It seems as satisfying conclusion that the series finishes much the same way it started, i.e. the three boxes being put in play again.

I don't know if it's going to be the last, but it will almost certainly be ONE OF the last. With the Chainfire events, I can't see it going more than two, or at most three more books, without him turning into Robert Jordan (god forbid). I was so glad that my sister gave me the Sword of Truth series, and got me away from that godawful Wheel of Time series.

My uncle gave me the Sword of Truth series, and I am so glad, because I was about to start reading the Wheel of Time books. My friend started reading them and hates it because she has to wait so long for every book, but just can't stop reading the series.

I thought Wheel of Time was pretty good until he made us wait two years for a book that did NOTHING to further the story until the very end, and all that was, was using a magical object to change the weather, but no one knew if it worked or not. Then the next book to come out after that (about 2 years later) was a freaking prequel.

@ Zed - Yes, I was sure about connection between your nick and Terry.

I remember reading that Terry signed the deal for 6 more books, which means that there are 3-4 books left in series. (can't remember when I've read that)

I my self bought Temple of the Winds first (sale - 5 bucks for hard cover) but I decided to first find first books and read them. Thank good I've done that.

I prefer Goodkind over Jordan for many various reasons.

1) Goodkind doesn't insult you with weak villains used only as cannon fodder and space filler, as Jordan does. (Not a ONE of the Forsaken have ever made a valiant stand, barring Ishamael who is still by far my favorite).

2) Goodkind has a writers sense of style, letting his universe breathe and grow as he writes, rather than keeping a firm chokehold of control over every character he writes (Jordan does not believe in letting characters adapt away from the writers conceived perceptions of them, he believes in a ham-fisted manner of writing what he intended, exactly how he intended).

3) The shallow, irritating nature of both genders in the Jordan Universe is completely lacking in Goodkinds SOT series. There is a significant difference between Khalan and the Mord Sith, or Khalan and Richard's Sis.

I haven't read past "Pillars of Creation" For one reason... just a personal quirk that bothers only me, I would wager;

I dislike when a writer introduces a "DEATH OF MAGIC" character into a fantasy realm, who will breed a new race of people that make magic vanish from the human world, essentially.

Name of next book (and last book in the series) is "Confesor" and it will be released on November 13th 2007.





For all of my readers, here is a preview of what is to come.

Descending into darkness, about to be overwhelmed by evil, those people still free are powerless to stop the coming dawn of a savage new world, while Richard faces the guilt of knowing that he must let it happen. Alone, he must bear the weight of a sin he dare not confess to the one person he loves…and has lost.

Join Richard and Kahlan in the concluding novel of one of the most remarkable and memorable journeys ever written. It started with one rule, and will end with the rule of all rules, the rule unwritten, the rule unspoken since the dawn of history.

When next the sun rises, the world will be forever changed.

For some reason I dislike the way Terry has left main topic of 2 last books unfinished?!

But still I'm sure that I will get this book just as every other one on the day of release. Wonder what will happen in finals.

Goodkind signed a contract to do 3 books after Naked Empire, so Chainfire/Phantom/Confessor. I don't know if there will be more after that, but the impression I got was that would finish the series.

I got through the first 4 books of the series and lost it around Soul of the Fire. I thought that his plots became searching and aimless; the major plot arc of the series stalled something terrible and I have lost interest. One of the later books, as I recall, doesn't even feature Richard and Kahlan. I do not feel as though his series is working along a pre-determined plot-arc; I feel as though it is a matter of "how much can I milk this cash cow?"

Don't get me wrong: he has great ideas, and the first four books were incredible. I just think he got off track.

I'd agree with you there, after soul of the fire it got a little off track. But the thing about his books are the stories with in them. The writing really flows and its always entertaining even if the ultimate plot is thinning. I'm on Pillars of Creation. After I read Naked Empire I decided to just order them all and start from the start. I'd say, with Naked Empire he did a good job of twisting the plot with the Imperial Order.

WELL I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF THE LAST BOOK CONFESSOR ITS IN STORES NOW AND WHERE I CAN BUY IT

That series is my most favorite and I consider myself to be a better person for reading them. However I haven't read Confessor yet.


How I came to know them is I accidentally read Faith of the Fallen first. Absoluetly loved it and wanted to know more about it and that's when I realized it was part of the series. You all know what happened next.

Faith of the Fallen was so well done and well written, I thought it was a stand alone at first. Great accomplishment by Terry.
