Soul of the Fire, the fifth book in Terry Goodkind’s Sword of Truth series, continues moments after where Temple of the Winds left off.
In Soul of the Fire, the magic that Kahlan (Richard’s wife) uses to save Richard’s life releases a terrible scourge into the world known as the Chimes. The Chimes slowly begin draining magic out of the world, which could lead to apocalyptic consequences. Richard and Kahlan discover the Chimes after Zedd (Richard’s grandfather) has started trying to banish the Chimes from the living world. While the heroes pursue their objective, another story is taking place. The land of Anderith is a strategic military point in the battle between Richard Rahl and the Imperial Order. Political intrigue in Anderith has a large effect on the lives of Richard, Kahlan, Zedd, and many others. Soul of the Fire is very well written, and one of the more enjoyable books in the series, in my opinion.
