"This sequel to Wizard's First Rule continues the saga of Richard Cypher and his beloved Kahlan. This lengthy epic, filled with magic, love, hate, war and lots of gore, is aptly presented by narrator Dick Hill. Hill's voice at first seems too deep to carry off the wide range of characterizations necessary, but he soon surprises us. Texture, inflection and great emotion emerge as we are led through each dramatic crisis. The narrator's reading intensifies our image of every landscape and every event that occurs as Richard the Truth Seeker pursues, willingly or not, the path set out for him. This is raw, colorful listening for the adult fantasy-adventure reader. J.J.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
