From the internationally best-selling author of the Sword of Truth series, comes a new Richard and Kahlan novel, sequel to The Omen Machine.
The bloodthirsty Jit is dead, and against all odds Richard and Kahlan have survived. But a new menace has attacked them in the Dark Lands. Infected with the essence of death itself, robbed of his power as a war wizard, Richard must race against time to uncover and stop the infernal conspiracy assembling itself behind the wall far to the north.
His friends and allies are already captives of this fell combination, and Kahlan, also touched by death's power, will die completely if Richard fails. Bereft of magic, Richard has only his sword, his wits, his capacity for insight - and an extraordinary companion, the young Samantha, a healer just coming into her powers.
Compelling, fast-moving, and intense, The Third Kingdom is a powerful tale that welcomes new listeners to Terry Goodkind's world, while opening up new vistas of world building for long-time fanss of the adventures of Richard Rahl and Kahlan Amnell.

I feel that too much emphasis on the graphic gore and cannibalism than the story itself. Feel the book list it's way a little after some excellent previous books in the series.
I'm a terry Goodkind fan and even though this story is not his usual best I still enjoyed it. There's enough in this to resemble his usual novel this novel appears overly contrived with a let of ideas borrowed
Simply not enough to have evil vs good kind of story to make a good fantasy book. The story needs to be more believable!
The performance is reasonable and Sam has read previous novels from terry Goodkind.
I just wish that terry would give his novels more thought as the stories of Kahlam and Richard are getting a little forced.
"A brilliant sequel"
The Third Kingdom is a brilliant sequel to The Omen Machine by Terry Goodkind. Sam Tsoutsouvas gives his usual great performance that makes it an enjoyable listen and even more enjoyable read. Richard and Kahlan are touched by death after escaping the Hedge Maid Jit. Richard discovers he must end prophecy, and Nicci, Zed and Cara have been captured by Hannis Arc. All this and more makes The Third Kingdom a spine chilling sequel to The Omen Machine.
"Why is the next one not out in the UK yet?"
why is the next one not out in the UK yet? great book but you are left hanging at the end I need the next on it is very frustrating to see is is available but not to everyone.
"Another Richard and Khalan novel"
No both are equally as good
I liked how it sort of continued from the sword of truth series but in a slightly different way
just as good as the others worth the wait
"I want more"
amazing ! amazing amazing !want more please :) I hope one day my books are loved like I love yours !
"The Third Kindom"
Too much repetiton of facts it is over and over again becomes hard listening
Sam Tsoutsouvas is not a patch on Nick Sullivan
Too long too much constant repetition of same facts
Get Nick Sullivan to narrate he makes the stories come alive
