Fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. The fourth book of the Sword of Truth series is just as good as the three before Temple of the Winds. The beginning wasn’t that great and some chapters were but overall, it was a great book to read. I sat in a chair for fours straight with my eyes glued on the words. There was a lot of suspense that made me think about what was going to happen next and who actually was the culprit. Also, there were parts that were really creepy and disgusting that made me skim through the text.
Emperor Jagang is back to claim rule over the vast lands that aren’t already under his rule yet. Using his ruthless skills, the dream walker haunts people in their worst nightmares, causing pain beyond imaginable. Soon, a plague is released by magic that kills thousands of innocent people starting with the children. The only thing that stands between Jagang and his victory is Richard Rahl, leader of D’Hara. Haunted by prophecies, Richard must pay the price of the winds to rid the world of the plague before he and his people perish.
