Présentation de l'éditeur

Richard and Kahlan are finally married and enjoying their wedding night back in the Spirit House in the Village of the Mud People. Soon, sudden and unexplainable deaths begin to occur, and Richard comes to the conclusion that when Kahlan called forth the Chimes in order to save him, they remained free, causing havoc. Zedd sends Richard and Kahlan off to the Wizard's Keep in Aydindril to get a special bottle that contains a spell that will stop the threat. While en-route, Richard, Kahlan, and their Mord-Sith protector Cara are sidetracked into dealing with the people of Anderith, who have a powerful weapon of mass destruction called the Dominie Dirtch. They find that the leadership of Anderith wishes to surrender to the Imperial Order rather than surrender to the D'Haran Empire. As Richard tries his best to convince the people of Anderith of the danger the Imperial Order poses, he becomes firmly convinced that the Chimes are loose.

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

Terry Goodkind est le nouveau prodige de la Fantasy américaine. En quelques mois, son cycle de L'Epée de Vérité est devenu un best-seller international, vendu à plus de 20 millions d'exemplaires. Pour la première fois depuis Terry Brooks, un auteur a de nouveau réussi l'exploit de réunir tous les publics sous sa bannière. Traîtrise, aventure, intrigue, amour, tous les ingrédients sont réunis dans ce cycle pour en faire la plus grande fresque de Fantasy depuis Tolkien. Né en 1948 à Omaha, Nebraska, Goodkind a d'abord intégré une école d'art de la ville pour se spécialiser dans la représentation de la faune et de la flore. Par la suite, il a opté pour une carrière de menuisier, avant de se consacrer à la fabrication d'instruments de musique, comme les violons, pour enfin s'intéresser à la restauration d'artéfacts rares et exotiques du monde entier. Toutes ces expériences ont contribué à faire de lui un écrivain à part entière et se retrouvent dans ses romans. En 1983, il part s'installer avec son épouse Jeri dans les montagnes boisées du nord-est américain qu'il aime tant, surplombant la mer. Il construira lui même sa maison où il finira dix ans plus tard par écrire La Première leçon du sorcier qui obtint un succès immédiat. Le dixième tome de cette série qui en comptera onze est sorti aux USA en juin 2006. Vous n'avez pas fini de rêver...

il y a des bonnes choses, normal pour un goodkind, et d'autres...
Le monde est décrit avec un réalisme rarement égalé(j'ai dit rarement, pas jamais).
Mais, car il y a un mais, on s'ennuie un peu.
La tendance à demarrer lentement se confirme une fois de plus.c'était déja le cas depuis "Blood..." et "Temple..."(surtout le dernier)et ici on peut vivre sans finir le livre, enfin un peu.
Dans l'ensemble pourtant, l'histoire est toujours génial.c'est juste qu'il aurait peut être mieux valu sacrifier un peu de détails pour gagner en rythme.
Mais bon, comme tout les good kind, lisez le!!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 La série se diversifie 16 septembre 2000
Par lducommun
Format:Relié
Ce que j'ai aimé dans ce cinquième roman de la série "Sword of truth" : - de nouveaux personnages, qui volent la vedette à Richard et Khalan, et qui sont assez intéressants pour redonner du rythme (surtout Dalton) - la critique des gouvernements qui paraissent utopiques au premier abord, et qui sont en fait des manipulations de masse
Ce que je n'ai pas aimé : - on se demande si c'est la fin de Richard et Khalan dans la série, vu le peu de pages qui leurs sont consacrés - le fait que Richard ait toujours raison, même quand il a tort - peu de gens s'intéressent à l'évolution des troupes de Jagang et de leur montée en puissance
Bref, la stratégie et la guerre en cours sont un peu laissés de côté, pour une longue parenthèse : ce cinquième volume. J'espère que le sixième reprendra l'action avec intensité, car sinon les lecteurs vont se lasser.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 In one word: shallow. 11 novembre 2001
Par Alexander Holmes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I can remember when I read "Wizard's First Rule" I was impressed. Not only because it renewed my faith in the fantasy genre, but also because it was fun, hard to put down and -albeit a few cliches here and there- well written. I can remember forsaking many a night of going out just to stay in and reading about Richard, Kahlan and all of the other characters from this series that intrigued me so. The strongest point of the books was that: character development and the consistency these characters maintained throughout the story.
Unfortunately all that appears to have been lost in "Soul of the Fire". An avid reader of the series, I must say this last book was not up to par with the first four (although there has been a visible decadence since "Blood of the Fold"). Firstly, I was shocked to see that almost half of this book is dedicated not to the characters we know and love, but to Anderith and its people. I would be all well and good if they played a major role in what we are told is the story's epicentre (namely, the chimes), but unfortunately, they serve no higher good than providing constant anticlimaxes. Perhaps it is not just that, but rather that the characters are so badly created that no-one except for Fitch (and to an extent, Beata and Dalton) gets a reasonable development. Even so, Fitch is utterly inconsistent, sometimes showing incredible stupidity and sometimes the cold-heartedness of a mass murderer. When I started reading this book I thought Fitch would mimic characters such as Steerpike in "Gormenghast", slowly rising to power and corruption, perhaps not the freshest option but the most viable. He does not. Or rather, he half-does it. What is worse, he disappears for most of the second-half and comes back suddenly just to be cut off the story in a most casual fashion, again, something that shows another of the book's weaknesses.
It seems that the author tried to tell too many stories at a time, but couldn't finish them off properly (we know authors have deadlines too!). My hunch is that he had so many plotholes by the second half that he decided to write off many of the side stories (Beata, Fitch) to carry on with the main theme (the chimes). The last quarter of the book seems hurried and the conclusions are too abrupt for the reader to digest. Out of the blue, Richard comes up with the solution for beating the chimes, as abstract and underexplained as it is. The chimes, supposedly central to the story become just feeble reasons to innocuously explain the rest of the plots. The storytelling is shallow and incongruent, and after jumping from plot to plot, reading over unnecessarily dull chapters (most of them involving less than masterfully portrayed political scheming in Anderith) the reader becomes confused and frustrated.
There is some merit to this book, though. The simpering and almost sickeningly melose realtionship between Richard and Kahlan has been, fortunately, toned down. Furthermore, the book does off with much of the homoerotic porn novel eroticism that its predecessors contained, making it less "trashy" than before (reading about Richard's "manly chest" and "bulging, powerful arms" can get tiring after a while). Also, the narrative takes on a different style in "Soul of Fire", being concise and assertive rather than the more lyrical approach given to the other books. This neither enhances nor hinders the reading, but it does make the experience feel fresh.
I understand that authors cannot always write about the same things; clearly, in this book the author tried to stray from the traditional and create a different type of novel in his series. While I would not say that he has completely failed, it is far fom being a job well done. Moreover, this book has left me indifferent as to what may come next in the series. It feels like this was not a proper "Sword of Truth" book, but two books in one, one about Anderith and one about Richard and the chimes, both failing to converge in the end and leaving the novel it as it is: two unfinished, rushed parallel stories that hold little relation between one another.

I love the Sword of Truth series. I have re read it several times and frequently recommend it. Unfortunately Soul of the Fire is a total dud. If you are reading the series for the first time be warned. When I do reread the series I usually just skim Soul of the Fire and sometimes skip it completely. I really wanted to see how being married would affect Richard and Kahlan. I didn't expect it to turn them into two different people. Richard goes from an intelligent man not hampered by his lack of formal education to a bumbling idiot who can barely articulate his thoughts. Kahlan (sadly Zed also)turns from a woman who has grown to love and trust Richard into someone who refuses to take him seriously and treats him like a child. In a way I was almost that glad the story turned to Anderith, until the story turned to Anderith. I have seldom read about a more shallow, venal group of people. I could almost hear Abraham bargaining with God, "will you spare them if there are 20 good, how about 10, five? Please God." The fact that all of the characters introduced in Anderith then were summarily whacked just seemed to add insult to injury. To spend almost 2/3 of a 700+ page book reading about unlikable characters and then have it be meaningless cause they're all dead? Time I'll never get back. Richard and party showing up at the end just felt contrived. It was almost like Terry suddenly remembered this was supposed to be a Sword of Truth story, so oh yeah, they should put in an appearance. The whole thing about Richard losing the Sword and Cara chasing after it was quite unbelievably dumb. Just another of several examples of a plot point looking for a story. All in all quite disappointing. Fortunately I really liked the first four books so I didn't give up on the series completely.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Family Guy Chicken got nothing on Me 6 septembre 2011
Par Twark Main - Publié sur Amazon.com
OMG, OMG, this is incredible writing, OMG:

"Hissing, hackles lifting, the chicken's head rose. Kahlan pulled back. Its claws digging into stiff dead flesh, the chicken slowly turned to face her. It cocked its head, making its comb flop, its wattles sway. "Shoo," Kahlan heard herself whisper. There wasn't enough light, and besides, the side of its beak was covered with gore, so she couldn't tell if it had the dark spot, But she didn't need to see it. "Dear spirits, help me," she prayed under her breath. The bird let out a slow chicken cackle. It sounded like a chicken, but in her heart she knew it wasn't. In that instant, she completely understood the concept of a chicken that was not a chicken. This looked like a chicken, like most of the Mud People's chickens. But this was no chicken. This was evil manifest."

I kid you not, I've not seen such a diabolically evil chicken since Family Guy. kudos to Goodkind

2.0 étoiles sur 5 The Series Takes a Side Road to Hell 8 juin 2007
Par Ernest T - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The Wizard's first and only rule should be that fantasy fiction series cannot be longer than 5 books. The leaders of the "Fantasy Fiction Writers Guild" should pass a resolution to this effect. If you have read Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time mess, or just about any other writer including Goodkind that has tried to take his/her series beyond 5 books you know that it is like a train going off the end of a broken bridge into a deep gorge.

Goodkind has obviously run out of story, so he takes this book down a side road to the psychotic world of Anderith. A whole bunch of self-serving useless characters are introduced, examined in depth, and then killed off to add absolutely nothing to the story line.

At least Goodkind keeps to his theme of rape and torture of innocent women. I was beginning to think he might be loosing his touch, but the good leaders of Anderith have redeemed him.

A hard read at best.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 The first 4 were great...This one was readable at best. 3 janvier 2008
Par Tyler Davis - Publié sur Amazon.com
I just began reading the Sword of Truth series about 3 months ago and haven't been able to put the books down. The first four were amazing and kept me enthralled almost all the time.

This book however, Book 5, was the worst book by far. It is actually strange how Goodkind can write four, 800+ page books extremely well with fantastic character continuity, story progression, an imagination, and then fall so far on the fifth book. Because it was so hard to get into, unlike the other four and the sixth book which I'm reading now, I am inclined to believe that, as another poster has postulated, Goodkind was already writing a book about Anderith and forced the story into the SOT world and story.

There are a lot of problems with the book that I'm not going to go into because they have already been covered multiple times in other reviews.

If you are reading this and having trouble with it, just muscle through it because the sixth book is probably one of my favorite so far. It is a fantastic book, especially if you liked the battles with Kahlan against the Imperial Order. Unlike Soul of the Fire, which completely ignores Goodkind's usual path of character development to instead develop the world, Faith of the Fallen is like the other four SOT books and focuses on character development.

Wow... I don't know where this book came from but it definitely doesn't fit with the rest of the SOT series.

Only read it if you are seriously into the SOT series and plan on continuing on to Faith of the Fallen (which I suggest).
