NAKED EMPIRE. It begins . . ."You knew they were there, didn't you?" Kahlan asked in a hushed tone as she leaned closer.Against the darkening sky, she could just make out the shapes of three black-tipped races taking to wing, beginning their nightly hunt. That was why he'd stopped. That was what he'd been watching as the rest of them waited in uneasy silence."Yes," Richard said. He gestured over his shoulder without turning to look. "There are two more, back there."Kahlan briefly scanned the dark jumble of rock, but she didn't see any others.Lightly grasping the silver pommel with two fingers, Richard lifted his sword a few inches, checking that it was clear in its scabbard. A last fleeting glimmer of amber light played across his golden cape as he let the sword drop back, in place. In the gathering gloom of dusk, his familiar tall, powerful contour seemed as if it were no more than an apparition made of shadows.Just then, two more of the huge birds shot by right overhead. One, wings stretched wide, let out a piercing scream as it banked into a tight gliding turn, circling, once in assessment of the five people below before stroking its powerful wings to catch its departing comrades in their swift journey west.This night they would find ample food.… (mais)

Reading this book, I kept finding myself comparing it to something. It took me the longest time to figure out exactly what I was comparing to though and it finally hit me: Plato's [b:Dialogues|30292|Five Dialogues Euthyphro, Apology, Crito, Meno, Phaedo|Plato|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1168063782s/30292.jpg|30661]. This is an action/adventure with bits of the [b:Dialogues|30292|Five Dialogues Euthyphro, Apology, Crito, Meno, Phaedo|Plato|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1168063782s/30292.jpg|30661] interspersed. Goodkind is a political philosopher using the narrative to explain his philosophy, which I think he does well, but he occasionally lapses into the style of argument favored by the ancient Greek philosophers. Once I recognized that, I began to enjoy the book even more. ( )

Oh dear, this really is a spacefiller book. A third of the text is repeated at least once in retelling the same thing to separate groups. Simple bits of travel are strung out over 10 or 20 pages. If the next couple of books look to be the same I think this is where I will stop reading them and move to another series. Oh, and "insure" is not the same as "ensure" - bad proofreading/editting there. ( )

While this book is better than The Pillars of Creation, it isn't by much. The entire thing is one long preach about the evils of pacifism. Even without the preaching, it's still a poor book overall. Like a previous person said, Richard's sister Jensen has been reduced to a sidekick and good for pretty much nothing. Her goat Betty played a bigger role here than she did. And surprise surprise, Kahlan is taken prisoner again. Boring.

At this point, I'm reading the series just to finish it. I'm so tired of Goodkind's writing. In every book, he repeats himself over and over again. How many times do we have to read about the effect that drawing the Sword of Truth has on Richard or the entire history surrounding Confessors whenever Kahlan uses her power? Speaking of which, Goodkind never explains why Kahlan's power didn't have any effect on Nicolas. I also hate how convenient he comes up with Richard's solution to the problem with his gift. It's amazing how wizards much more experienced and far older than Richard didn't know that their theory on balance and how it relates to not eating meat were completely wrong.

I really hope The Wheel of Time series is better than this one. ( )
